Bought for xmas eve '07..Smells very old world, of banana, cloves, dust, and an old maid ... very dark in colour, of orange amber bread crust ... glides down the throat, but has a very strange aftertaste that weirds it all up.... lacing is like james stewart in a wonderful life... a pin point above average Hefe but the queer aftertaste kills the overall enjoyment of this beer, but it has its place...probably..

11.2 oz bottle. Deep amber body with a durable, creamy head and excellent lacing. Flavorful, with moderate levels of banana and yeast/spice over a good wheat base.

A dark brownish-orange pour with a head that mafe a quick exit. Not a longer lasting carbonation like some Hefe's.

A bit of a dry-wheat flavor. Could be a little more refreshing. Almost earthy and gritty. Twig flavors.

Average at best. Not worth the $2.29 I paid for the 16.9

This beer pours a murky, orange/brown color with a thick, stabile head.

Smell is spicy with some clove. A yeasty smell with some wheat notes. I also get some faint chocolate notes.

Taste is malty and spicy of the yeast, with some wheat taste. From appearance and taste I get the feeling there is some caramel and/or chocolate malt in here. I can taste some unsweetened chocolate. The yeast character isn't as outspoken and fresh as some other Weizen I have tried.
Mouthfeel is grainy leaves a dry and tart taste.

Light amber color, decent head, highly carbonated. Typical bannana/yeast smell and taste. For the most part, a typical good hefe. I used to buy this beer a few years ago, and I remember it being better. Somewhat lackluster now. It just didn't jump out at me. No complaints though. A good, standard hefe.

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

A - clear golden, thumb of head dissipated quickly to a few random islands
S - strong banana and wheat, light cloves, and alight earthy note
T - similar to the nose but cracker grainy flavours are more dominant, yeasty esters through the finish
M - very big carbonation to the point of domination, finishes lightly spicy
O - had the general expected flavour profile and is enjoyable, just a little heavy on the carbonation for my preference of sytle

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Dark gold-copperish (amber tones) with a low ivory head but good carbonation kept the low head consistent. Wheaty malt aroma with a trace of fruitiness but very low aroma for style. More of a soft malty, nutty, toffee flavor for a hefeweizen. Light bodied, creamy, and effervescent.

Much different than most hefeweizens and not what I think of for a Bavarian Hefeweizen. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad.

Looks great with two fingers of head on a darker straw colored body, a few bubbles are visible.
The aroma is nice: grain and hay.
The taste is fairly malty with a moderate bitterness. A bit different for the style, but good.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
Enjoyable, but not a traditional hefeweizen.

1Pt. 9Fl Oz. Bottle. Hazy orange color with a slightly pink head. Ester smell with hints of citrus. A little darker than the Hefe's I've had. There is also a lack of body to the brew.. a little light on the malt I think. It satisfies but does not knock my socks off...
