This beer pours a cloudy bright yellowish body with a thick white head.

Nose has a sweet yeasty smell. Thick wheat, malt, phenols, yeast, bananas, a touch of spice, a little bit of apple peer and even lime peel.

Light to medium bodied with a very smooth with an immediate, almost macro like, wheat flavor to it. Yeast, wheat and believe it or not, that classic German pilsner type earthy malt and yeast quality. Lemon juice, touches of grapefruit juice, banana peel, apples and hints of some numbing spice. A very mild bitterness that is all almost non existent.

Interesting wheat beer. The malt or yeast quality has this classic German Pilsner type taste that makes it almost even more drinkable for a refreshing summer brew.

Pours an opaque orange-amber, topped with a four finger pillowy white head. Leaves webs of lacing.
Banana and tropical fruit aroma. Clove comes in next with a good amount of peppery spice.
Banana and wheat bread taste, a bit tangy, some lemon zest, lemon and pineapple.
Light to medium bodied, refreshing.

Poured from a 16.9 oz. bottle into a weizen glass.

Appears a cloudy golden orange with a one inch off-white thick and creamy head. Leaves some decent lacing in bit patches.

Aroma is of slight banana and spicy cloves, some wheaty graininess, and some earthiness as well.

The taste has some banana initially alongside a light grainy sweetness and a hefty amount of clovey spiciness that kicks in midway through and lasts into the finish. Some apple and pear esters in there as well though slightly subdued by the spiciness. Some earthiness on the finish.

Mouthfeel is light though closer to medium. Very smooth and dare I say creamy. A little thicker than some Hefeweizen but good.

This is a really good Hefeweizen though I'm sure this bottle is probably somewhat old. I would like to try one that I know is fresh.

Kapuziner Bavarian Hefe-Weizen pours a cloudy golden color with a white head froma brown one pint nine ounce bottle. Aroma is a bit different from other hefes I've had. Sure there's a touch of banana and clove, but also, as the label says, some tropical fruit. Flavors seem to begin with a little banana and clove, but end with some caramel. I wasn't expecting caramel in a hefe. There also do seem to be hints of tropical fruit in the flavor. This is a fine tasting hefe. Recommended.

Not a fan of the style, but I thought this beer did exactly as it was supposed to. Dark cloudy goldenrod when served, it came with a low head. I did appreciate that it did leave white spots of lace through-out the glass. Malt and wheaty notes in the aroma. I found the beer to be very smooth and easy to drink. Taste was mild, with a finish that was all bubblegum. Like I said, I am not a fan of the style, but this beer was exactly as expected, and in fact helped me out by being as mild and smooth as it was.

I'm not exactly a hefe man, although enjoy one or two from time to time.

Poured this one in one of my hefeweizen glasses only to find a hazy yellow-orange, with a 2-inch fluffy head. Nice thin lacing.

Good spicy, banana-ish smell.

Malts and ripe fruits hit my palate. Nice.

Good mouthfeel: buttery, refreshing. With a light twang as an aftertaste.

Will drink this one again.

¡Salud!
