3.15/5 rDev -9.7%
A: A hazy straw color with what a first starts as a thick white head and turns into a thin white head. Doesn't have the staying power of other hefes.
S: Yeasty with wheat malt and citrus notes.
T: Mostly has a bready malt flavor with a touch of citrus and a tiny bit of spice. The finish is much too sweet.
M: Light with a good bit of carbonation.
O: An Average Hefeweizen. Right in the middle I'd say.

Pint glass. Spirals of yeast suspension swirl in a rather clear golden beer. The fluffy head that came from the pour has fallen quickly. 3.5
Lemon rind and muted spices in the nose. Not very active aroma-wise. Breath of hops, wheat malts, and citrus. 3.0
Attenuated flavor. Some clove and coriander, but hardly any fruity esters. Lemony twang that doesn't stay in the finish. The finish actually comes with unexpected bitterness. Herbal hops are more noticeable than any bready malt flavors. Disappointing. 2.5
Watery body. Too thin. Bad feel. Over-carbonated. Ouch. 2.0
I found a German that I definitely dislike. Aside from that, it really is a poor example of the style. They shouldn't tout on the back label that they're 'the World's No. 1 Hefe-Weizen' because they are far from it. 2.5

Bottle of 500 ml, at home.
Head of three fingers, soapy, but with very good retention. Pale honey coloured, hazy.
Aroma is fruity with some banana traces and quite malty.
Taste is sweet with some sour aftertaste, sort of citrus.
Average thickness on the body and very carbonated.
Good but not that great.

A little more expensive than I would normally spend for a single beer, but this is one that I enjoy when I come across it. Goes down very smooth, and it sure is a pretty beer when poured. One of the better German beers I've had, which with all the outstanding German beers out there, I'm proud to say this one holds its own. The head has a long life span while drinking. I'd certainly recommend at least a one time try.

12oz bottle into pint glass. Pours a very slightly cloudy faded gold color with two finger foamy white head.
Nose: Lemon, banana, honey, bread, slight pepper.
Taste: Citrus, acidity, banana, sweet wheat. Lingering sweetness and slight acidity in the aftertaste.
Moderate carbonation with a sweet but clean finish. A light but good hefe. Would drink again.

Grabbed this along with the Dunkel variant a few days ago.
Nice yellow color, very hazy, and seems even hazier as you let it sit for a while. Persistent foam rings.
Spicy, malty smell. Nice but subtle.
Taste is mainly acid, reminding me of raisins and a bit like a salad, and that specific hoppy aftertaste which reminds me of a Radeberger pilsner.
It has a light body...perhaps a bit too light. Carbonation a bit on the low side once you get through that foam.
Don't be fooled though, this beer is a bit stronger than it will feel or taste. And the 500 ml bottle size only makes this situation worse. It seems to pair well with chicken sandwiches and cold cuts of meat.
I like it and recommend it. But I have to say I like the Dunkel a bit more.
