Taste - A kind of tangier tasting hefeweizen to me, with more citrusy notes in it. Its otherwise a bit lighter in body, a much cleaner sort of unfiltered than I expected.

Overall - Pretty good. Definitely better in hotter weather, as I feel its more refreshing, less on cloves and bananas, and smoother on the finish.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into my Weihenstephan weizen glass.

A - Very pale yellow gold with a light haziness. Very effervescent. Beautiful big white foamy head and sloppy lacing. Just like a hefe should look.

S - Typical hefe aromas of banana and coriander with some yeast and gum.

T - Follows the nose with some light grassy hops.

M - Medium to full body, moderate to high carbonation.

O - Solid German hefe.

Poured from a .5 liter bottle into a tall weizen glass.

Appearance: A beautiful hazy deep golden color with hints of amber. Like the colors of a sunset. Tall creamy foam peaks formed and receded slowly, leaving good sticky lacing.

Smell: Just like a good Hefeweizen should, it smells like banana, cloves and bubblegum. Sweet and wheaty.

Taste: Fantastic. The sweet wheat blends perfectly with the yeast phenols and it's a sweet, rich and tropical fruit mix. This is the taste of Hefeweizen perfected with an old world recipe and old world yeast. Outstanding flavor.

Mouth feel: Rich and creamy with soft carbonation. Perfect for the style.

Overall: Hefeweizen is a simple, yet complex tasting beer. When it's done right, it's a fantastic beer...and Hofbräu does it right. This is a fine example of the Hefeweizen style!
