I enjoyed this beer while stationed in Germany during 1969 to 1970. With a shot of White or Red Corn, you couldn't ask for a better combination. And with a plate of knockwurst or bratwurst with a side order of Pommes Frites . It was the perfect meal.

Pours a cloudy blonde with a two-finger head into my glass. Very good presentation. Authentic.

Clove, citrus and wheat aromas in the nose. Very inviting to the nose.

Light with wheat and clove flavors. Seems a little "off" but otherwise, this is as authentic as it can get.

Clove, clove and clove. Nothing much more that lingers.

Would probably taste better fresh. Gotta know when to pick 'em. I waited too long.

Served in a Bruery snifter.

Got this as a sample, figured I'd give this brewery a shot./ It pours a lightly hazy golden straw topped by over a finger of white foam. The nose comprises wheat, very light coriander, and light light orange zest. The taste brings in more of the same, but is also cursed by a strong must on both the wheat and the orange, leaving a strongly bitter and unpleasant flavor on the tongue. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly smooth feel. Overall, a weak hefe, indeed, one that couldn't come close to the better German examples.

Served the bottle into my Weizen glass. Love the bottle design with the hard cap.

A: golden cloudy color with a three finger head that faded quickly. Hardly any lacing.

S: wheat, cloves, some citrus, lemon present on the nose. It's not strong but nice enough to enjoy it while you sip the beer.

T: taste is very crisp and solid. Wheat is predominant, citrus, yeast and slight hints of banana.

M: feels lighter than most German Hefes. Carbonation was right and helps in the smoothness of the beer. Very drinkable.

O: I was surprised at how good this beer was. Highly recommended to those who enjoy American Wheat Ales since this is a very drinkable Hefe and more on the light side. Will definitely come back for more of this.

Pours a slightly hazy dark golden yellow color with a MASSIVE frothy white head that takes forever to slowly fade into a lasting ring. Large chunks of soapy lacing left behind.

Slightly spicy and earthy aroma with hints of light fruit, citrus and bready yeast. Grassy hops compliment the zesty spices(pepper, clove) up front followed by the yeast character and some lemon peel. All of these notes are here but are slightly muted. Subtle alcohol and light fruit.

Medium bodied with lots of tight carbonation up front. The bread/yeast character is most prominent with hints of zesty spice, light fruit and citrus. Faint earthy hops up front are complimented by hints of pepper, clove and lemon zest. Kind of watered down and bland with everything just melding together and nothing standing out.

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

A: Pours a hazy deep amber. Botched the pour resulting in way too much head. Head retention rather low, pretty much no lacing.

S: Strong fruity notes of orange, unusually fragrant for the style.

T: Very sweet with fairly low attenuation. Strong orange, no banana or clove apparent. This Hefeweizen is a bit one dimensional for my taste.

M: Pretty heavy body and sweetness is only partially offset by the orange flavored acidity. Overall I'm not in the mood for another, pretty low drinkability.

Overall while true to style, this is a bit of a simplistic and one dimensional rendition.

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

A: A feverish uprising of effervesce is seen within the cloudy vibrant orange body. The head is rocky, off white but holds strong with a sheen like gloss above the rim.

S: The nose is strong wheat (duh) with dry bananas and dry orange peels. Nice, subtle spiciness of cloves come on the close. Fairly strong on the open it does soften somewhat rather quickly.

T: Crisp upfront, slightly fruity with dry oranges and wheat. The hopping is fresh, wet, and of the noble variety. Nice bite of slightly sour oranges and dry wheat grace the finish.

M: The mouthful is crisp and tight with a bubbly feel. Creamy and luscious with a wheat texture and a final fade of cloves and oranges.

D: Crisp drink, good for the summertime, worthy repeat.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is hazy golden yellow in color and has a very high amount of carbonation; some yeast particles are visible near the bottom of the glass. It poured into a weizen glass with a three finger high head that has excellent retention properties.
S: There are aromas of apples and bananas along with some hints of clove in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is quite fruity and has a mild amount of sweetness. There are flavors of apples and wheat along with notes of yeast.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a high amount of carbonation.
D: The beer is very easy to drink and refreshing although there isn't much complexity in the taste.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a wizen glass.

Pours a nice hazy yellowish color wih a huge head that heaves nice lacing. Smells faintly of bananas and bubblegum. Has a touch of clove. The flavor is nice with a good lemon presence and nice wheat character. Mouthfeel is nice as it s actually not over carbonated despite the large head formed. Drinkability is high as this is really smooth and tasty. Not overly complex but easy to go down. Worth a shot but not the best out there.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a huge white head. The aroma is wheat with a lot of orange citrus notes. I don't get banana and clove like I expected. The flavor is strong wheat with hints of lemon, toffee and orange. I didn't get the traditional hefeweizen notes in the flavor, but it was still pretty good. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Poured from a 500 ml. plastic corked bottle with the metal lock with an expiration date of August 2010. Sampled on May 23, 2010. The cork made quite the pop and foamy fizz when I opened it. It poured pale yellow with about three inches of puffy, foamy off-white head that took several minutes to diminish. The wheat is the most powerful sensation in the aroma along with a nice balance of barley and yeast. It is of lighter texture but not watery thin. It has a nice creaminess to it. The wheat and barley taste is rather mild and easy to drink when all is said and done.

Thanks to my coworker, Mike, for getting me a bottle.

A - Poured from a 500 mL bottle into my hefeweizen glass. Pours a hazy orangish-yellow color with lots of carbonation bubbles rising on the side. It also pours with a ton of head that lingers for quite a while, and leaves lots of lacing on the glass. There are a few floaties in there.

S - Lots of wheat and lemon. It's not very diverse, but it's strong, and good. Kind of reminds me of a warm summer's day.

T - The wheat is the dominant flavor in this beer. There are hints of light citrus, and belgian yeast, but for the most part, it's all wheat all the time.

M - Well carbonated, crisp, and refreshing.

D - It's generally not my favorite style of beer, but I could drink more of this.

A: Orange amber color; cloudy with floaters. Poured a 2 finger white merangue head with excellent retention. Decanted continually. Inconsistent light lacing.

S: Very muted clove and banana. Bready wheat malt and citrus.

T: Wheat malt, light fruit and spices. Crisp and refreshing.

M: Light body. Ample carbonation. Crisp and refreshing in an evenly bitter finish.

D: Very drinkable. Solid hefeweizen.

500ml flip top bottle. No sign of a best by date.

It pours into my Weizen glass a murky peach color with a huge billowing white head that leaves some nice lacing.

The smell is quintessential Bavarian hefe with great balance between lemon, wheat, and clove. The banana is there but not as much.

The lemon comes out big time in the taste, it is a tangy, wheaty hefeweizen. The mouthfeel is a bit watery, it is the low point of the beer. It is extremely drinkable though. Skip the american pale wheat beers and go for this on a hot summers day.

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

A: Poured from a bottle to a weizen glass. Had a brownish-yellow color and a thick, cloudy consistency. Lots of floaties. There was an inch and a half of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Not much lacing at all.

S: A sharp, slightly acrid smell of wheat, hops and malt.

T: Tasted of hops, wheat, malt, and that bubble gum quality common in hefeweizens. A bit on the thin side, but OK.

M: A highly carbonated beer with a dry finish. Light-bodied.

D: A drinkable, if somewhat above average hefeweizen.

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

Appearance: Clear honey color and bright white head of one-half finger. There's good lacing and a fine stream of bubbles. Overall, a handsome beer.

Smell: This isn't an aromatic brew, but it does smell nice. There are nice esters of yeast and banana. This beer also smells of lemon.

Tatse: As with the smell, I was hoping for more from this beer. In short, flavor is lacking in this beer. It's tastes fine, I was just looking for more yeast and malt flavors. You can expect weak malt, yeast, and lemon flavors.

Mouthfeel: Good for style.

Drinkability: This is a good beer. Give it a try, just don't expect an A beer.

Opened the swing top to a loud pop and began to pour. Even with the most gentle pour I could muster, my glass was filled with nothing but rocky white foam. And I mean NOTHING but foam. I've never seen anything like it before. You don't measure the head on this beer by number of fingers, you measure it by number of hands. Eventually the foam began to turn into liquid and was "only" about one hand high, with about an inch of hazy golden liquid below. If foam is your thing, this is your beer. Very active bubbles rose to the top of the glass, feeding the head even more. Rated a 4 in appearance due to the sheer amount of laughter the crown on this beer caused.

The aroma was a gentle mix of banana and clove. Very subdued but nice.

The taste was also pleasant and subdued. The bananas were there, a bit of wheat and a slightly tart finish.

Mouthfeel was smooth and medium, with a perfect amount of carbonation.

I rarely if ever give a beer the same scores across the board (in this case, all 4's), but I feel this one deserved it. There's nothing exceptional about it (except the head), and there's nothing really "wrong" with it either. It's a nice weissbier which was enjoyable to drink. I wouldn't hesitate to have it again.
