This beer is much darker then what i have seen from other hefeweizens. It also dosen't look as cloudy as other hefeweizens and the head died down quickly. Tasted a bit spicey with a hint of bananas. Carbonation was a bit flat but the beer was smooth. It's drinkable but probably not going to have it again.

APPEARANCE
This beer is much darker then the traditional hefeweizen. It also does not hold the head retention well at all.

SMELL
Smells very fruity with a hint of bananas.

TASTE
Does not taste that great. It has an aftertaste that I don't find good.

MOUTHFEEL
It is slightly coarsed and does not go down that easily

DRINKABILITY
I don't recommend this beer. It's not a very good hefeweizen.

Foggy color, lots of carbonation. Fruitiness develops half way through the glass. Begins with a taste which is harsh for a weisse, but by the end of the glass, the taste is balances out into a nice combination of wheat and hops.
Served with lemon
Quick fading head

A: Shockingly dark for something not considered to be a dark hefeweizen, extremely cloudy, lemon cola color. Fair head retention.

S: Sweet cooked banana yeast, though not as strong as the Tap 1 blending nicely into the malt underneath. Heavy smell.

T: Like the Tap 1, it has this watery quality, and the alcohol is more present. It's strange because there are qualities about the flavor I like and don't like. The tart, sourness isn't pleasant like a rotting lemon, and the alcohol doesn't fit well coupled with the sourness. But beneath that, it has these qualities of a really good beer. A nice fullness of a good blend of the yeast and malt. The sweet cooked banana is also in there. But sadly the sourness ruins it for me.

M: Mouthpuckering sourness. Mild carbonation.

O: The sourness ruins it.

Reviewed 2/14/2007 (500mL bottle):

Pours a huge, creamy off-white head, decent lacing, lasting. Brown color, very cloudy. Floral wheaty aroma, some alcohol. Light, malty flavor, watery. .Some of that wheat in the taste, some grapefruit. Watery, not too complex a flavor. A light session beer.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A - Hazy orange, poured a large white head, nice carbonation streams.

S - Light wheat, straw, and grain. Citrus, especially lemon and orange peel.

T - Light notes of weak malt, and undertones of citrus wash the palate upfront, with close following light citrusy tones. Not exactly what I look for in a good Hefe.

Possibly an old bottle - it just didn't do it for me. At best an average beer, and not quite represenative of the style.

look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a .5L stein.

Appearance: very very surprizingly dark for a hefeweizen... especially "The Original" german hefe-weizen ale... not very consistant with the style. Head dissapated very very quick. No lacing, no head after 15 seconds at all.

Smell: Smells very very sweet. Almost too sweet. Bottle says "bottle fermented" and that leads me to believe the sweet smell is from the added sugar used to carbonate and ferment the beer. Not appealing. I get overripe peaches and cantelope.

Taste: Tastes very sweet, like cantelope and sweet sugary apricots. Not anything close to the refreshing other german varieties like weinstephaner , hacker and paulaner and augustiner.

Mouthfeel: good solid carbonation keeps through the session. Very sticky, not my preference.

Drinkability: Suprisingly light for the taste and smell. Its easy drinking, but too sweet for my palate to drink a lot of these.. On a drinking night I would maybe have more than one, but not in my line of go to german beers for any night

2.95/5  rDev -25.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: Darker than expected, mid-toned brownish amber. Thick head, slow moving carbonation trickles up from the bottom of the glass.

S: Most resembling a twist on a Belgian style wit. But, with toasted caramel malts and banana and orange citrus.

T: Bitter and toasted malt. Hops slap with a bitter and phenolic backhand with esters aftershock. Not as smooth as expected or led to believe by my nose.

M: Slightly soapy, medium carbonation.

D: Eh....

I think I've fallen victim to yet another somewhat aged bottle. But, I don't think my palate was tainted too much by that. I'll find another bottle from a different store, compare notes, and amend review if necessary.

Served in the brewer's glass at Stuff Yer Face in New Brunswick, NJ.

Forms a nice long-lasting and rocky weiss head, but the beer is muddy brown - very murky. Plunging my nose as far as possible into the glass, I can still say the beer doesn't smell like much of anything. For the taste, I pick up only a slight roastiness, missing a lot of the yeast character and associated fruitiness/spiciness. The mouthfeel is medium, not quite thick enough for my taste in this style, with good carbonation. Overall, I call this a refreshing, but far too mild, version of the style.

Bottle pour to a straight pint. Tarnished copper, almost brown color (very dark for a weiss); creamy, stable head.

Solid phenols, slightly metallic overtones.

Reasonably well made, I guess, but this is a touchy style to get just right--I wouldn't go out of my way for it. . .
