Like the previous reviewer I found this in a store in China. This was in Jing An district in Shanghai.

A: Poured from the 500mL can into a pint glass. The beer is a nice hazy orange color. The head is slightly offwhite and large. True to style.

S: Right away you can smell the banana bread, spice, gum. Average smell for this kind of beer. Good but not as refreshing as many others I've had - missing a truly fresh fruit character and some citrus peel.

T: Light in the taste department. Good amount of bread and spice, but overall it's a bit thin. The beer lacks a certain depth, even though the essentials are all there. Not bad but nothing special

Overall, not bad for the price. If you want to pay a bit more you can get Franziskaner, one of the leaders in this style. This was a good change up but probably won't try it again.

At the end of summer, here's one more hefe tasting; this one bought in Germany, on a short trip.

Looks brown, cloudy, with a good creamy head.

Smell is glorious banana bread.
Taste is also banana, together with citric fruits and mild spice. Very nice indeed.

Aftertaste is sweet, bittersweet, complex yet balanced.
Mouthfeel is lively, light, but still flavourfull.
Very refreshing.

All in all, a very good hefeweizen beer. It surprized me very positively.
Recommended. Try it if you can find it.
(a later sampling - 2 july 2011- disappointed me a bit. It was quite different. I adjusted the ratings about 0.5 point because of that).

Poured from a can into a makeshift beer jar in China.

A-A nice and deep yellow-white-gold color, almost brownish looking. Quite cloudy. It poured a creamy and white 2-finger head that really never went away. Great sticky lace left on the sides of the glass.

S-Banana bread, crackers and some slight spice and cloves.

T-Right down to the nose: banana bread and clove. Spicy-sweet going in, and the aftertaste was slightly bittersweet from the hops, but fairly balanced. I really enjoyed the taste of this brew. There were some bits of cracker and zesty-citrus in there as well. Pretty balanced German Weissbier Hell.

M-Light bodied, balanced, and somewhat refreshingly carbonated. Quite fresh and crisp. It was nice!

Overall-It is currently winter and I prefer to drink this style of beer in the warmer spring and summer months, but I am in China right now and I will take what I can get! I recommend this beer to anyone who can find it. Cheers!

Dark orange pour, big three finger foamy head, nice retention and lots of bubble strings from the bottom of the glass.
Smell of soft white bread, banana and a bit lower clove, but all of the elements come together nicely.
Taste of bread, not too sweet banana, mild fruitiness (some apples, pears, oranges) and just enough spices (clove, touch of pepper). Nice hops present in the back, with a mild bitterness that cleans up the aftertaste nicely (some wheatiness remains, not much else).
Medium body, prickly fizziness, on the refreshing side of weizens.
Classic. Maybe it doesn't stand out too much, but it's a perfect go-to beer if you want a benchmark hefeweizen.
