4.1/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours hazy yellow, big fluffy head, so a classic pour. Few floaties. Out of the ordinary is a huge (!) amount of carbonation.
Sweet banana and clove, some honey and freshly baked bread in the smell.
Really fruity, a nice mix of sweet-sour-acidic: apple, banana, oranges, pear, like a tutti-fruit soda pop, but in a good way. Pretty faint hints of floral honey and caramel, but they do enrich the whole taste. Wheaty bread, clove from the dense yeasts, going to some herbal notes in the lightly bittered finish.
The carbonation doesn't feel as aggresive as it looks, but it's still bigger than in other weizens. Crisp, not as chunky as others.
Nice weizen, easy to drink and tasty.

500ml bottle. Weizen glass. Pale straw color, cloudy appearance. White froth creates a close but lively & poor head. Yeast, banana & fresh bread aromas with slight phenolic notes. Bready & malty flavors at first sip. Medium body. Moderate but lively carbonation. Dense to watery mouthfeel. Low floral bitterness. biscuit & clove notes linger in a sweet malty/slight bitter finish. Estery aftertaste & bread memories. Refreshing & easy drinkable beer.

I have only really had 2 kinds of Hefe Weizen's before. One was on tap in Leavenworth, WA and I just cant seem to get the brewers name. However, this beer has came very close to the smooth and heaven like Hefe Weizen I tasted before. The beer has great color and head. The smell is full. The taste is very well rounded and anytime in the mood to really just sit down with a beer and appreciate its existence, this is my go too.

"The origin of Hofbräu Hefe Weizen dates back to 1589 and since then the "Weisse" has a distinctive place in the history of Hofbräu München. Hofbräu Hefe Weizen is characterized by its sparkling, by its rich foam and naturally by its unforgettable refreshing taste.

Poured from a 11.2 oz. bottle to a pint glass. Served above 58º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a crisp, fizzy smooth white foam head over a moderately hazy amber-yellow body. Carbonation is abundant and clarity is higher than expected amongst a standard Hefeweizen. Retention is below average and no lacing is left behind. 3

(Smell) Aromas of sweet, heavy banana bread and cloves up front. A faint grassy and herbal note provides some aromatic complexity and little bitterness. A light bready wheat malt with subtle fruit-yeast undertones rounds out the beer. A very bright and full-flavored aroma with a great deal of Potency is medium+. 4

(Taste) A bit more rounded out in the flavor, but very impressive still. Smooth, silky wheat malt base with a light syrup sweetness, very clean. Banana and clove are more reserved but still play a significant role in the finishing flavor, and joined with traces of orange peel, pair flawlessly with the delicate sweetness of the malt for a perky faintly spiced finish. Very clean and highly drinkable, I'd file it under amongst some of the best-tasting Hefeweizen. 4.25

(Mouthfeel) Malt body is slightly sweet, slick and chewy. Carbonation adds some mild crispness and fluffiness to pair. Body is medium for the style, medium overall. Alcohol presence is very low. Balance is slightly sweet over bitter. 4

(Overall) Another fortunate find that I was more than pleased to have, Hofbräu has crafted a very timeless recipe amongst a timeless style. American breweries try, but many still can't pull off the balance, cleanliness, fullness of flavors and delicate characters quite like this beer does. Incredibly drinkable and thoroughly enjoyable, It may not be the finest Hefeweizen on planet earth, but it puts in more than its fair share of effort to yield fantastic results. 4

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured a gorgeous cloudy yellow with a thin ring of white head. It looked quite nice, but it was lacking a lot of the normal hefeweizen head, the body however looked excellent. Scents of clove, orange blossoms, yeasty wheat bread and sweet floral aromas. It was a delicate aroma profile, but very nice, quite appetizing and very appealing. Taste began with yeasty wheat bread and wheat cracker, but quickly the wheat was joined by notes of pear, apricot, mild floral hops, sweet spices, particularly clove, and a bit of honey, which became more prominent on the finish and aftertaste. This beer surprises you with it's delicate, yet complex flavor profile. It's excellent. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation and a drying finish. True to style for a hefeweizen. Overall this is an excellent hefeweizen. It's got the bones of the style, as well as a complexity to it's flavor that puts it easily on par with Weihenstephaner. Well worth drinking.

11.2oz bottle poured into flute glass

look is cloudy and orange, no surprise there. as soon as i poured the beer, there was the undeniable scent of sugar cookie dough in the air. the taste is less on the cookie dough, but also less on everything: it's crisp and has good bite (light feel), but only faint hefe flavors - mostly cookie dough.

disappointed in this one, maybe it was a bad bottle.

500 mL bottle from the LCBO; best before Jan 29 2014. This is one I've sought after for at least the last year, since I missed my chance to pick it up last summer. Since I'm spending the evening in a stinking hot, non-air-conditioned house during the season's first real heat wave, it can't be much of a surprise that I've been looking forward to cracking this one open all day.

Pours a cloudy golden-yellow colour, generating slightly more than one finger's worth of fluffy, bone-white head. Typical retention for a weisse; it takes more than a few minutes to wilt down to a thin, creamy cap/collar and a ring of lacing around the glass. The aroma is pleasant and covers all of the bases I expect from a hefe - lots of bready wheat malt sweetness, and even more yeastiness, including some clove, coriander, bubblegum, and a big wallop of ripe banana. It has been a while since my last hefeweizen, and a few sniffs of this one already has my mouth watering.

This is a rich, full-flavoured hefe. Bubblegum is the first flavour to come through, leading into a mixture of banana, wheat malt sweetness, with slight hints of lemon zest and clove spiciness rounding it out toward the end. The aftertaste leans toward the sweet side, with the wheat malt being a lingering presence on the palate. Medium in body, with restrained carbonation as well as that velvety-smooth mouthfeel shared by all quality hefeweizens. Extremely drinkable, and a pleasure to do so on a sweltering hot evening like this.

Final Grade: 4.19, a solid A-. There can be no doubt; Hofbräu Hefe Weizen is a classic Bavarian wheat beer that I am glad to have procured. While there are probably other examples of the style I would select before this one, the fact remains that this is still an outstanding hefe I could easily see myself picking up again. This is definitely worth a try if you happen to spot it on the shelves of your local shop, and it makes a perfect quencher for the real dog days of summer.

Weissbiers such as this one are bottled sunshine – literally as well as figuratively. Its golden brightness emulates a nice June afternoon (which, of course, is its ideal pairing). I anticipated this golden-orange beer to be highly refreshing but it also looks quite substantial. Its head could serve as a lifesaver - might be a good idea to keep a bottle next to the pool...

The beer smells overwhelmingly of mushy, over-ripe bananas. Better get out the baking pans. The yeast's natural clove-like spice adds a nice dimension to beer (or, as an idea, chocolate-chip banana muffins...) Some sweet malt is noted too but the yeast's perfume is overwhelming.

Most German lagers have a simplicity that is deceitfully challenging; most German Hefeweizens have an apparent complexity that is actually quite simple: just add yeast. It provides clove and white pepper spice, lemongrass herbals and orchard fruit notes. All this is complimented by a light citrus acidity which provides a tiny hint of pineapple.

Weissbier may be the ultimate in zippy aperitifs. They are effervescent and fruity, their citrusy acidity making them both delicious and refreshing. Trust me, no orange wedge is necessary. All that said, this one has a mouthfeel that is quite creamy and considerably filling.

The Hofbräuhaus in Munich has been referred to as the Mecca of all beer pilgrims; the emergence of so many incredible and interesting craft breweries throughout the world now challenges that claim, but with quality, time-honoured beers such as this it's easy to understand why people still say that. If you can't make the trip, definitely buy the bottles.

Very light, almost gold, amber. Fizzy head settles quite quickly. Missing the haze you would hope for. Ho hum.

Really nice bubblegum aroma, but lacks spice.

Bubblegum up front settles to run of the mill wheat flavours. Dry finish.

Bit of a let down. Lacks the character of the standard-bearers.

Bottle: Poured a hazy light dirty yellow color weizen with a large white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of banana bread with light cloves and some light bubblegum notes. Taste is also dominated by banana bread notes with some light cloves notes and subtle bubblegum ester. Body is full with great carbonation. Vey refreshing notes with great esters.

500ml Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO for $3

Appearance - Hazy yellow colour with a large size fizzy white coloured head. It's hard to make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 4-5 minutes.

Smell - Breads/grains, clove/coriander, banana, metallic

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste breads/grains mixed with some lemon and some clove/coriander. There is also some banana and some floral notes. It ends with a bittersweet fruity aftertaste.

Overall - A solid hefe. The banana borders on tasting a little fake, like a banana candy, but it's still very good and quite refreshing. It has just right amount of fruit and spice balance.

500ml bottle, best before Feb 2014. So we're zehr gut, nein?

This beer pours a rather cloudy medium golden yellow hue, with two fingers of puffy, densely foamy, cushioned eggshell white head, which leaves a few instances of wavecrest lace around the glass as it lazily recedes.

It smells very much like banana bubblegum, with some semi-sweet clove, tame earthy yeast, wavering wheat grain, and a bit of buttery reduced caramel toffee. The taste is mildly edgy sweet wheat malt, banana chips, subtle dry yeast, soft indistinct spices, a hint of spent bubblegum, wee citrus notes, and a bit of warm caramel.

The bubbles are tame and faintly frothy, the body medium-light in weight, and generally quite smooth. It finishes on the sweet side, the wheat malt, fruity, and gentle spice keeping things well within reason.

A pleasant, fruit and malt-forward hefe, as the yeast and spice seem content in their background role, which lends itself to a balanced, harmonious beer. Tasty and very drinkable, as summer weekend evenings get into full swing.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A- Poured from 12 oz bottle into weizen glass. Slightly cloudy golden, but more clear than what i am used to seeing from this style. Calm bubbles, good lacing average retention.

S- earthy yeasts. Wheat. Slight fuitiness and clove. A nice amount of spice to go along with it too. I like what is going on here.

T- Earthy yeast again, some buttery and taffy flavor, then a huge rush of German tasting wheat malt. Very tart finish that is a nice touch. Just a little off on the balance with the dominance of the wheat.

M- A little thin compared to some others of this style, but still quite drinkable. Touch of dryness in the finish. Moderate carbonation.

O- A good beer. Would have loved more clove flavor and was a little dissapointed the taste didn't follow the pepper i detected in the smell. Not spectacular, but a good beer none the less. A spirited effort for this style.

ST: 11.2oz poured into a Hefe glass.

A: Cloudy golden-orange with a thick white, fluffy head with rapid carbonation bubbles.

S: Banana, clove, citrus, soda bread.

T: Bite of sweet wheat, orange, banana, a zap of spice and the zing of carbonation.

M: A bit light, though creamy.

O: The first sip through the thick head is very enjoyable, and the creamy mouth fitting finish with a hint of clove is equally nice. There was a metal, medicinal tinge that hurt the overall flavor throughout, though that taste might be the fault of this individual bottle. For the price, it is one of the better Hefes to buy from Germany.

12 oz green bottle

Hofbrau Hefeweizen poured a slightly cloudy gold color producing a soft white head made of tiny bubbles. The nose was on the light side, of mild clove and very mild banana. Thankfully the flavor is stronger than the nose. The taste is dominated by banana, and wheat bread with a touch of clove in the background. The mouth feel is crisp, smooth, with a light-medium body and a little sticky finish.

Hofbrau Hefeweizen is a refreshing Hefeweizen that drinks easy and not too filling. Maybe, a little to light when compared to the better Hefeweizens.

Classic caramel hefeweizen appearance. Skunky beer aroma clashing with characteristic banana smell. Worth mentioning the bottle is green not brown and so that might have something to do with the aroma. Skunkiness comes through mildly, you can notice a hint of the alcohol, and slight bitterness. Moderately carbonated with great drinkability.

On-tap served in a Hofbrau weizen glass at Beerosophy, Bangkok.

A:
Traditional pale cloudy yellow hue with thick frothy and silky white head with excellent retention, it just slowly fades to everlasting foamy layer covering atop and same time leaves plenty of refined lacing ring, patch and spot along the way down, splendid showcase.

S:
In the way what it should be; banana, bubblegum, spice, clove, wheat and light citrus, well mellow.

T:
Suggestion of bubblegum and fruity ester by a nuance of banana and zesty citrus, malt in the back drives all the things up. Clove comes in mind with a spicy, peppery touch while hop just lies underneath but well fit and suitable to the overall flavor structure by letting the others playing on the front row.

M:
Medium in body with very velvety and super smooth mouthfeel from the delicate wave of lively crisp carbonation. Finish is dry and refreshing.

O:
Very well balance and very well done, simple but delicious and easy to get along, all the elements both external (appearance) and internal (aroma, taste, feel) are harmoniously straight forth together. This beer deserves a big quaff.

A- Hazy pale golden. Heaad is a bit thin for a hefe, but the retention is quite good. Lacing is decent.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Cloudy, pale-honey in color. The head was 2+ fingers of frothy off-white (limited only by my halting the pour out of reluctance to overflow my glass, which admittedly was too small for the bottle). Lacing was fair.

S: Spicy pepper and a mix of floral and citrus hops up front. The wheat is certainly there, along with faint clove and banana notes typical of Bavarian Hefeweizen.

T: Tart fruit is the first flavor to hit the tongue, followed by bready wheat. There's a touch of phenol and bitterness in the finish that also includes pear and tobacco.

M: Crisp, but not heavily carbonated. Pretty dry finish, even for a Hefeweizen, bordering on astringent; yet it doesn't feel out of place on this one, and just encourages you to keep drinking.

O: A very solid Hefeweizen. It paired nicely with a German cheese (mushroom brie) and crackers. Nice for a treat on a sunny, summer day.

Had this on tap at Kaizerhof in Yurakucho, Tokyo. Poured into a weisse glass. Say whatever you can about a good hefe and this fits. Beautiful elegant appearance, wonderful smells of wheat and grapefruit, taste matches its looks, it goes down smooth, and has no negative aftertaste or gas. Overall, this is a solid hefe that leans toward a grapefruit side. Grapefruit isn't my favorite, but if you're into that, you'd love it.

An aggressive pour.

A- Pours a beautiful hazy medium golden color with 3 fingers width of thick and foamy white head that is sticking around for a while, and leaving some thick lacing on the glass.

S- Typical Hefeweizen smell here. Lots of banana, some clove spiciness, and a little yeasty.

T- Nice smooth wheat taste, along with the clove spiciness and some banana. Instantly refreshing.

M- Going with a solid medium body, not overly carbonated a nice amount for the style.

O- A nice offering of a Hefeweizen. 1.99 for a 500ml bottle around here, can't beat that.

Golden hazy yellow-orange body with a thick retaining cap of head with lace. Only drinking the 11.2oz format, so it only fills a pint so high. 4.0

Firm-bodied banana and clove in the nose. Floral hops and slight yeast nuttiness. Nice graham cracker quality to the malt. 4.0

Banana/clove, slight bubblegum, kiss of hops with light bitterness, and some mustiness. A little pear juiciness. Primo yeast strain used. Fantastic. 4.5

Creamy smooth with some vigor in the carbonation. Easy-to-drink in a large quantity, and I wish I could... right now. 4.0

Whole lotta banana in this one, and it's great. Recommended, of course. 4.0

Nice original German Hefe, as soon as I saw the bottle I had to try it.

A: Excellent cloudy yellow/amber color. Very minimal head, dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing except for some bubbles around the edges and a few patches here and there.

S: Very aromatic. Grassy/grainy with alot of citrus and yeast and the banana esthers that are typical of a Hefe. Have a very small amount of clove and spice coming thru, I was expecting more here but its not disappointing with everything else going on. Very enjoyable.

T: Surprisingly enough, rather mild flavor however this was a bit colder then usual. Flavors became more distinct as it warmed. Mostly wheats and malts at first with the hints of citrus rind. Getting some yeasty flavor but its not overpowering the wheat and grain tones. Spice is there but just like on the nose, its very mild. Very well balanced all around.

M: Light carbonation, with a crisp and clean taste. Almost tastes lighter then other Hefe's, possibly due to the mild spicing. Lower ABV and the alcohol is barely noticeable here as well.

O: Overall I really enjoyed this beer. Wish it had a thicker head however everything else about the brew was very good and enjoyable. Nice spring or summer time beer.

Pours a murky dark yellow with a 1 inch foamy white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly slide into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, spices, and banana aromas. Taste is slightly sour with some wheat, spice, and banana flavors on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good hefeweizen but nothing really stands out with this one.

A - Orange pour, with a hearty white foam. Slight lacing.

T - Taste is crisp and refreshing. Very much a traditional German hefeweizen. Has a noticeable yeasty flavor.

M - Very well balanced. There is a nice contrast between the tartness of lemon and the earthy flavor of spice and fresh grain.

O - Been a while since I went back to this and was surprised at how good Hofbrau is at making a traditional German style. Always thought of them as too mass-produced. Don't overlook their offerings.
