Pours chill hazed with thick white head filling the upper 1/3 of the Paulaner Weisbier glass. Slowly falling it is supported by strong beading and substatial lace. Aroma of citrus and clove and belgium yeasts. Taste very solid with hint of clove and citrus balance with sweet grain. Great mouthfeel supported with high carbonation finishes dry but no bitterness from the hops. A very drinkable Hefe-Weizen. Anyone loving this style should be pleased.

A tall, roiling, starch and protein bomb emerged over this muddy yellow liquid. The top layer was glazed pearlescent. It chattered.
The aromas were rebel-hoppy.
"This is Bavarian Hefe Weizen?"
Aromas of popperings, glazed lemons, cakes, doughs, sweet fruit cocktail, angelfood, clove-laden pineapple cakes, dry, juicy apricots, cream, butter...
pine...
lime...
keylime, cinnamon.
An unctuous, melting texture.
Flavors of orange, pepper and sour banana give it seriousness.

The hops and thorough attenuation make it bone dry, but it is loaded with glycerin.

Pours a slightly cloudy, golden amber with a very pillowy head that last much longer than most hefes I've seen. Scents of hops, lemon, and hay waft from this brew. The beer tastes of buterscotch, wheat, hops, and hints of amaretto. A little different than other hefes I've had, maybe because its a golden or bavarian style hefe I don't know. What I do know is I really liked this beer and thought it was great and will be getting many, many more.

There is not much better than a German Hefe Weizen. This beer is pretty damn good. It is a nice hazy burnt orange and has no head moments after the pour. It has a nice ripe banana aroma. The taste is quite refreshing, a bit of clove and citrus with a nice crisp finish. This is going to be a beer to look for during the summer, but was a nice on this cool evening as well.

500ml bottle, BB date reads 14. October 2011, into Kapuziner glass. Pours hazy, dark golden effervescent body with streams of uprising bubbles below the thick, moussy white head with good retention. The somewhat restrained aroma exhibits clove which is inferior to the banana esters and dominant baked bread with sweetish toasty, almost caramel like qualities. The beer is sweet on the palate: banana and wheat perceived as well-baked bread are wrapped in sweet Pils malt, there's a faint citrusy tartness probably originating from the high CO2 content and finally comes low hoppy bitterness. Nearly medium bodied with wheaty texture donating creamy, fluffy sensation yet the beer remains prickly on the palate due to high carbonation.
