4.2/5  rDev +6.6%

Classic hefe with all the qalities of a solid beer in this style: wonderful hazy color and great head; delicious citrusy taste with superb balance of flavors and ingredients; a full, creamy mouthfeel that blends well with the abv; and a satisying finish. I even love the bottle, which I'll keep for perhaps future bottling? I plan to go back to the store to pick up some more before it disappears. A very solid beer. Can't wait to try their others (3 of which are chilling now in my fridge).

Fürst Wallerstein Hefe-Weizen
.5 L brown bottle with swing-top enclosure. "Best before 19.02.14" - almost 6 months old...
$3.99 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Appearance: Typical. Clearer than it might be. Heavy sediment is left in the base of the bottle. Good head retention, dropping but always maintaining a solid surface covering. Average lacing.

Smell: Wheat. Minor banana and clove. Dull, probably due to age.

Taste: As the nose indicates, the flavor follows. It's nicely balanced with a bitterness that just pushes slightly past the malt sweetness. Gently spicy and floral hops accentuate. Pleasant maltiness and moderate yeastiness. Round and smooth. Some plastic-like and minor smoky phenolics give it a bit of an edge... it reminds me of slow-roasted pork in a way. Lots of vanilla in the lingering finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium headed towards medium in body. Gently crisp, effervescent carbonation.

Overall: A fresh sample would, without question, be worth trying. The spicy and gently phenolic combination followed by soft vanilla allows it to stand out from the pack.

Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is bursting with banana's , spices. Taste is the same, banana, spice, wheat, extreme refreshment. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a top notch beer.

3.63/5  rDev -7.9%

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

A classic booming soapy white head makes the grade, slides down the glass and provides some retention, but true to style. Body color hits at unfiltered mix of classic orange glowing yellow, with some light amber hues. Lots of rising carbonation. The body color has a good mix of in between great and uses the brown to it's advantage.

Nose is peanut butter. What is it with the yeast profile on these Furst brews? Peanuts and clean wheat chewy malt. Light clove sense pops in. The peanut sensation on this style feels real good compared to the pilsners, it comes off with that nice chewy wheat malt and compliments nicely. I actually like this angle.

On the palate, yup it's a hefe alright, but seems quite toned down. Most of the flavor profile is accented in the finish, hitting with a real nice lingering burnt clove sense that isn't drastic or hurtful. Body hits at some wet carbonation, but matches it seems with the toned down flavor. Borderline crisp.

Overall it's a muted Hefe, but I strangely miss that peanut taste which I think would make this unique for a hefe. I could have this again though, it's a good German hefe alternative.

3.91/5  rDev -0.8%

A: Pours a hazy, somewhat murky orange-yellow. The off-white head has a light tint of yellow-orange, and while initially tall, it eagerly fades to a more medium height. The texture is a bit fluffy/foamy, and a patchy lattice of lacing sticks to the glass.

S: Some tangy wheat aromas in the nose, along with some general malty breadiness. Soft yeasty spiciness, with rather light clove notes. Banana notes become increasingly prominent as the beer warms. A bit lemony/citric. Subdued but pleasant.

T: Bready malt and wheat notes up front. Yeast adds a nice batch of citric, banana, and powdery spice flavors. Faint vanilla and clove flavors. A pleasant, fruity aftertaste brings some light orchard notes (pear, golden apple).

M: Medium body, with fairly soft carbonation. Generally creamy and inviting.

O: This is a nice hefeweizen, though other offerings from Germany are superior. This manages a very nice balance, with no particular characteristic standing apart from the others. Nicely crafted and easy to drink.

3.43/5  rDev -12.9%

500ml Bügelflashe. Mindestens haltbar bis: 05.12.11.

It pours a light hay gold with a bright white head that quickly dissipates with no lacing.

The smell is predominantly banana with some malt coming through ever so slightly.

The flavor follows the scent. Big banana notes in this one. A nice bit of wheat and barley flavors as well. It also has a nice lemon tartness. It is a fruity, sweet, but light hefe-weizen, great for summer weather.

3.48/5  rDev -11.7%

Perusing the German beer at Total Wine and ran across this, big fan of Hefe so figured I would give it a go.

A=Pours a very thick and cloudy orange with a huge fluffy head. Pretty appetizing for any hefeweizen fan, though i wouldn't recommend it as an offering to someone just starting to expand his beer horizons.

S=Typical fare of clove and banana

T=Clove and banana come to the forefront with a spicy taste in the finish

M=a bit thin but nicely carbonated

O=Try it out if you can find it in your local store but don't bend over backwards to trade for it
