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

Dark hefeweizen coming in at a hazy brown with a hint of ruby. Sinking head that sits on top nicely. I wish it looked as good as the picture, and there's resemblance, but it comes up short. Maybe it's my weizen glass. Lacing is alright, but could be better.

Subdued wafts of apple and coriander.

Spicy and quite tangy. Citrus, apple and banana phenols with soft wheat. Unfortunately, there's a faint musty metallic twist that seems to inhibit the experience somewhat. Try to ignore it and this is still a pretty juicy hefe.

Soft and watery body. Not much to write home about, but you can feel the alcohol.

Smooth, fun and casual. Nice basic hefeweizen that's decent for a session.

Darker than I would have expected for a hefeweizen, and I poured it into the wrong glass. But a nice wheat beer.

To me one of the more unique looking hefe-weizens out there,pours a gold color with a real nice reddish tint.A small to medium head with aromas of cloves and yeast being the tmost prominent.The taste is orange-like and some cloves a real nice summer quaffer.A unique beer for the style.

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

Appearance: 500ml bottle. Poured a murkey brown/orange with large foamy head. The head didn't last as long as i thought it might (or as long as i remembered it to).

Smell: Fruity and light. Good spiciness going on here but not as much banana as i thought there would be. A little yeast detection and a hint of bubblegum sweetness.

Taste: Much more banana once on the palate. What starts spicey and earth-like turns into fruity banana and a light citrus with bubblegum chewiness and sweetness. Not as rich and full bodied as i would have liked.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and light off the top. Bubbly and dry towards the finish. An easier drinker.

Drinkablilty. Great for a summers day. There are other great hefeweizens i prefer (Dennison's) but this is a decent example of the style.

Appearance – This is really dark for a Hefe Weizen. The head fit the bill though. It rose up easily and never quite did go down.

Smell – There’s the typical sharp yeast flavor, but it’s a little on the toasted side, which is strange. Other than that, it has the usual light fruity profile led by bananas.

Taste – This is part dunkel, part hefe. The nice yeast is there but, again, it’s a little on the toasty side. The banana-dominated fruit is right on the mark.

Mouthfeel – Light but foamy in accordance with the style.

Drinkable – This went down like a good weizen. It wasn’t what I expected, though.

The 'Tap 7' variety, is not a patch on the 'Tap 6' variety. Similar in looks, chestnut grey and cloudy. Thinner, with a harder and rather spear-like on the palette tinniness (in comparison, between the two).

This one cost me e0.95 from the local specialist beer shop; the #6 was e1.19.The e0.24 premium is very well spent is my advice!

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #80 (Sep 2013):

A classic is what we have here, so easy to knock back. Not your typical contemporary Hefeweizen. as it dons a slightly darker color. Bold but very approachable, and don’t you dare think about garnishing this brew with any kind of citrus.

STYLE: Hefeweizen
ABV: 5.4%

LOOK: Hazed brassy hue, amazing head

SMELL: Ripe banana, bready, taffy, nutty yeast, lemon pith, dried grass, mild clove, fallen apples

TASTE: Perfect crispness, moderate-sized body, loaf of bread, estery, peppery, banana taffy, grainy, yeast, apple skin, spicy clove, kiss of alcohol warmth, drying finish

Purchased from Otto's Wooden Cask in Brown Deer, WI. Pours a bright dark gold body with a bright white head. Aroma is loaded with fruity esters, banana peel and clove. Medium bodied with a smooth wheat malt flavor, crisp carbonation and a clean, dry finish. Superb drinkability.

Dark golden brown with a thick frothy head. pretty thick lacing.

Bananas and cloves with a pinch of spice.

First sweet lemons and then light banana cloves. quite malty, with a bready finish.

nice full body and the right amount of carbonation.

pretty filling beer.

This beer does not pack the same punch that its bavarian counterparts do. It is pleasant but its character is lacking something to impress. I do like that malty aspect though.
