I have had this a few time in Korea where it is packaged and market as Wabar Dunkel but it is Oettinger.

Appearance- Standard hefe, cloudy and gold with a fluffy white head.

Smell- Bananas, spice and everything nice.

Taste- Follows the nose, A litte bit of tartness that is not usually in a hefe

MF- Medium body slight carbonation

Overall-Ok hefeweizen. I was told by a German at the bar that in Germany it is a super cheap beer for a person on a budget but it is still better than much of what is sold in Korea.

Pours a cloudy yellow color with a nice head. Nose is banana and a lot of bubblegum. The taste follows suit. Opens up with with a little bit of spicy citrus flavor, which moves on to softer banana notes. A little bubblegum is present on the backend, but really explodes on the exhale. The mouthfeel is a touch on the watery side, but it is full. Overall, this is a solid hefeweizen. I found it strange I had to come to Central America to hear of this/be able to try it, but I am glad I got the chance. This hefeweizen provides a nice break from the Central American dull macro-lagers.

Hazy amber orange color with lots of head with good retention.
Aroma of banana yeast and cloves.
Flavor initially seemed to have more barley malt than usual. Taste of bananas and over-ripped oranges and condiments. Dry aftertaste and mildly bitter.
Medium body with good carbonation.
Kind of positioned nowhere between drinkability and complexity choices. I believe there are better options, even local ones.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a straight pint glass.

Pours a hazy golden colour with quite a nice white head.

Smells fairly yeasty.

Tastes okay, with that classic sharp hefeweizen yeast flavour up front but then some nice smooth and refreshing wheat flavours too, with a hop bitterness on the finish.

Overall quite a nice beer, slightly lacking in character and bit plain though.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours murky golden with a large white compact head that slowly sets into decent lacings.

S: Sweet malt and loads of wheat, gives the ripe banana. Some citric notes lures in the back. Also a bready backbone.

T: Rather mellow for a Hefeweizen, not too strong flavours. Ripe bananas and bready malts.

M: Aftertaste is short but a little bitter. Body is medium while carbonation strong but smooth.

O: A above average Hefeweizen, but not too exciting.

Hazy golden brown color, nice creamy head - didn't fly off the handle but still had good stick and lacing. Fairly citric note, good blast of yeast, a little clean but a good start overall.

Actually much more phenolic banana, a somewhat biting citric and estery yeast note toward the end. Good bitterness. Not a super strong flavor either, but treading the middle. Finishes crisp, lots of carbonation, fair blast of coriander in there. Pretty solid choice, grab one if it's affordable.

Typical german hefeweißbier with slightly less citrus and more bananas aftertaste than most hefeweissens. Bought in bottle form from a store in Celle Germany.

A - Hazy light brown - to gold in color, unfiltered. Not much in the way of head or lacing, but enough.
S - Smell of bananas
T - Good beer, Not as strong of a flavor as some other hefeweizens, some citrus, coriander and a strong aftertaste of banana stand out.
M - medium-light body, average carbonation.
O - Good beer! Probably not the best hefeweissen i've ever tried but maybe in the top 10.
