Had this at the Delerium cafe in Brussels - been looking for the Weizenhell version for a long time now. Served in a Schneider weizen glass.

A - Awesome looking stuff - exactly how a wheat beer should look. Big billowing blonde foam that eventually settles to about 2-3 fingers before slowly dissipating to a half-finger cap and leaves lots of sticky lacing. Hazy dark peach color that is a little darker than the regular stuff. Not sure what else you'd want from the style.

S - Cloves, banana, tangy wheat, bubblegum, black pepper. It's perhaps a little spicier than the original, but not super different. Still it's very potent and lovely smelling stuff.

T - The taste is a little more subdued with mostly sweet malted wheat and banana flavors, and a bubble-gum finish. The clove and pepper seems to disappear, and there is minimal aftertaste.

M - Typical weizen texture - moderate carbonation, medium body, soft texture, clean finish. I actually like my weizens to have a little less zing on the upper lip, but otherwise this was solid.

D - Super drinkable. Low ABV, moderate carbonation, great clean taste - definite summer beer. Not sure why we don't get the Weizenhell version in the US, as it's a nice spin on an old classic. (1,237 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

appearance- Light brown/amber color with little head that left by the end of the drink

smell- hints of clove, citrus and banana

taste- medium body that is crisp and smooth. you can taste the clove spice as well as abundant fruits.

mouthfeel- feels good going down. i haven't had many German Hefe's but this is a good one. it's medium feel is masked by its darker color. it suprises you with the ease at which it goes down.

drinkability- first time with this beer and a good hefe. others that i have tasted (especially ones from USA) seem like lite beer in comparison. was hesitant when i originally poured because of the color, i had to look at the label again to see that it was a Hefe. but i was pleasantly suprised. if given the option i wold definately drink this one again. (782 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Cloudy, but thinner in color than I would expect for a Hefeweizen. But the rear label also classifies it as a Weizenvollbier. Orange yet slightly brown in color. Beautiful inch and a half head. I forgot to mix this one well and I see faintly what looks like slightly darker than the beer color, food coloring drop patterns floating in the middle.

S: Sweet cooked banana yeast. The most banana-y hefeweizen I've smelled.

T: Besides banana, there's an unplaceable mild fruity sweetness. A tinge tart. Alcohol is present in the aftertaste, which is surprising for the ABV.

M: Medium body, with very mild micro carbonation. Smooth.

D: Very good beer. I only wish it was a hair sweeter. (697 characters)

Very good beer! Poured with a nice off white head that soon settled down and no lace. Color is a hazy/cloudy apricot amber. Aroma is yeast, malt, caramel, citrus, and other fruit. Flavor is similar to aroma with the following qualifications: more tang, more apricot, not too sweet ( just right actually), and all complimenting one another to a lovely whole. Body is good and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor and tapers very slowly with a slight fruity tartness at the very end. Very easy to like and drink this potion of oral pleasure. (543 characters)

A- Cloudy golden/orange with 2 inch off white head that fades at a moderate pace to a lasting lace.

S- Very fruity (banana and pear seem to jump out) and also some nice yeasty notes.

T- Nice maltiness throughout the taste. Wonderful fruit flavors mixed in throughout (again banana and pear jump out at me). Nice level of spice. Twangy and grainy wheat finish.

M- Strong carbonation up front with a medium body. Would almost be creamy, but the wheat flavors make it crisp overall.

D- Nice levels of carbonation and good balance of flavors make this very refereshing and drinkable.

Overall, this is definitely one of the best tasting German wheat beers I've had. Worth trying. (679 characters)

Crisp and clean as Weizenbocks go. Brilliant orange-gold appearance, moderately cloudy. Green apple peal aromatic front, banana middle, clove finish. Aroma is truly wonderful. Tastes fruity of pear, mandarin oranges, and wheat. A bit darker than most. Heavy carbonation, nice streaming. Very refreshing and drinkable. (317 characters)

I had this (im fass gereift) at the Weisses Brauhaus, where it was listed as 5.2% alcohol.

A: Golden yellow, slight haze, great head & lace.

S: Bready malt, slight banana.

T: Bready malt, slight banana, hint of citrus. Quite malty, with a crisp finish. Well balanced.

M: Light to moderate body and carbonation. Crisp, but somewhat creamy. Very nice.

D: Very good. (378 characters)

Poured from the bottle a hazy orange-gold with a huge frothy white head which quickly melted away.

Nice aroma of banana, lemon, cloves, and wheat.

Tastes of banana, lemon, bubblegum, yeast, and cloves. Finish reveals more of a wheaty side to the beer.

Medium bodied, creamy-yet sharp, with moderate carbonation.

One of my favorite hefes for sure and a real joy to drink. (374 characters)

A - Poured from a bottle into a weizen glass. Pours amber, fairly darker than other hefeweizens, and with a foamy white head.

S - Malty, wheaty, yeasty, and with faint spices.

T - Akin to the aroma; trademark wheaty taste with more malt than some, fruity, citrus notes and spices.

M - Thinner than medium bodied, decent carbonation.

Notes - A prototypical hefe. (365 characters)

Poured a nice dark amber with a moderate foam head. You could definitely smell the bananas and the hints of clove. The taste is definitely refreshing as the bananas and yeast make for a refreshing and fruity blend.

The carbonation is moderate making it easy to drink.

Definitely worth drinking. (300 characters)

I definitely enjoyed this beer from start to finish. Poured a cloudy, golden brown after the yeast came into the mix. Massive head that remained for a good time. Excellent, somewhat toned down smell with some sort of fruit and a bready aroma. The taste reminds me of a spotted banana, my favorite, as the wheat does well to keep it from being too much. Ideal mouthfeel for a hefe and as drinkable as they come. Of the limited number of hefes I've been able to find, this one ranks among the leaders. (499 characters)

A: Carbonation is prominent. Darker than most Hefes. Has a dirty brownish-yellow tint. No head at all on this one.
S: A fragrant bouquet of honey and clove.
T&M: It's very light and clean, with a slight spike and then it goes mellow again.
D: I like this one and will come back to this beauty again. (299 characters)

.5L into weizen glass

Pours a deep orange, almost brown hue. Perfectly couldy. Thick 2 inch eggshell white head with good retention. The head settles to a foamy cap. Moderate lacing.

Deep earthy yeast notes. Fruity banana aromas swirl throughout. After a swirl of the head, large amounts of creaminess show themselves. Light bready malt in the background to complement the fruit like aromas.

Medium bodied with zesty carbonation. Slightly dry finish, but still smooth at the same time.

Good well rounded hefe-weizen. Full of flavor and easy drinking.

Honey biscuit like malty flavors start out, then shifts to sharp fruit flavors. Minimal hop bitterness in the back of the mouth, just enough to oppose the malt. (726 characters)

"The Original Hefe-Weisse" comes in a half liter bottle, poured into my very own Schneider Weisse glass given to me by a very knowledgeable German beer fan. Opens with a gentle hiss and a slight gunsmoke. Pours a surprisingly dark color for a hefe-weisse (a light brown, rather than golden). I guess I am too used to the American wheat beers. Huge amounts of carbonation coming off the bottom of the glass- a 3 1/2" head is trying to collapse, but no way with all these bubbles coming up. Quite pretty. Aroma is malty, grainy, but different than all-barley beers. I guess I am smelling wheatfields. Flavor is very nicely balanced- no strong flavors pop out over any others, but I detect slight citrus notes and a lot of breadiness. Overall very drinkable; nice and creamy. (772 characters)

I've been meaning to review this one for a little while now, just grabbed my only bottle out of the cellar. So lets see what he have.

Look: Very deep and thick shades of brown, amber, orange, and yellow with a big billowy head that looks like a sudsy cloud. Very pleasant looking

Aroma: Very spicy aroma, cloves and coriander predominantly with a floral presence and a hint of bananas. Not bad overall

Taste: Slightly tart and spicy flavor at first hops and cloves make themselves known right away but they don't showboat. The spiciness then slips into a light and laid back nutty bread like malt characteristic, and it does taste like banana bread to an extent and it also exhibits a slight taste of ginger. Pleasant flavor all in all

Mouthfeel: Smooth clean and crisp with a slight tingling on the tongue throughout. Very Well don on the feel, I'm tempted to give it a 5 but its not quite there for me.

Drinkability: Extremely drinkable! Its smooth, light in the mouthfeel, very refreshing, and is great as a summer cool off. The 2 deterrents for me were the slight sour taste and the tingling on the tongue. Other than those drinkability was perfect.

Quite a good beer all in all, I think I've come to realize though that even though I like Hefeweizens, they aren't a style that I'd drink regularly. Still a very good beer all in all though, full of flavor and a nice example of a good German Hefeweizen. (1,415 characters)

Sampled on-tap at the Weisses Brauhaus in Munich. "Schneider Hell Weissbier".

This pale hefeweizen poured cloudy, golden color with slightly off-white, creamy foam that persisted. The smell was wheat malt plus light bananas. The taste was malty with banana and a touch of citrus tartness. The mouthfeel was smooth yet crisp with medium body and medium carbonation and a light fruitiness. The banana and citrus flavors lingered lightly in the aftertaste. This was a very nice and easy drinking hefeweizen -- a bit lighter and less rich than its cousin, the "original" hefeweizen. (581 characters)

Ours to a very full white head with fine bubbles. Headforms a characteristic lace to the bottom of the glass. Aroma is somewlat more pronounced than the average for the style with a fruity and spicey note. The brew itself is quite pale and cloudy to the eye. The aroma carries on through the taste with fruit and spice coming through, maybe a bit of clove. Body is a little thin but the finish is very refreshing. (413 characters)

Pours a nice golden brown and is smooth and medium bodied. No tinge of real bitterness or immaturity. Goes smooth and not overly heavy on the palate and stomach. Flavoring is even and consistent with little changing until it is gone. One to come back to time and time again. (274 characters)

A - one finger of foamy white head tops a bright amber body, lively with effervescence.

S - Beautiful hefe pungency, banana, coriander, clove, yeast with some stale mustiness.

T - Sweet caramelized banana, lots of wheat and coriander.

M - Slightly thinner than the top hefes, moderate to highly carbonated.

O - Another top tier German hefeweizen. Beautiful sessioner. (371 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance – The bottle foamed over when I opened it, so I gave this one a very careful pour. The head is white and very tight and the body a darker orange than I expected.

Smell – Primo hefe weizen aroma. The yeast is huge and laden with light fruits. This one smells heavenly.

Taste – This is very good. The fruits are heavier that the norm, especially the banana, and the yeast is right on target. It’s kind of in between a hefe and a Belgian pale ale.

Mouthfeel – The one noticeable drawback to this offering is the lack of carbonation. This bottle was almost downright flat, which is off-style for sure. Otherwise it felt very good in the mouth. Fuller than most hefe weizens that I’ve had, this one was actually medium-bodied and kind of chewy.

Drinkability – I wanted an afternoon snack and opted for this over a bag of chips. I’m much the better man for it. This was a neat experience. It is a very interesting take on the style. (957 characters)

Poures a nice blond color with a light orange tint with a big blooming head leaving nice lave down my weisse glass,clovey,spicey aroma with a some light banana but the spice is dominant.Cloves hit the palate right away with some but some citrus (lemon mainly) comes thru to make this a refresher and brings nice balance.What can I say a great Bavarian Weisse on par with the best in the world in my opinion. (407 characters)

Cloudy, rusty golden in color, with a sizeable and fine head of white bubbles. No lace.

Smell is citrus, bubblegum, and clove. Typical, and inviting.

Taste is sweet at first. I get wheat, a hint of orange peel, and some clove for spice. Couldn't ask for more, or better.

You'd expect a Bavarian hefe to be as good as it gets, and this one doesn't disappoint. Right there next to Weihenstephaner, in my book. (410 characters)

Poured into a weizen glass.

A-Poured a thick, white, 2 finger foamy head. The color is brassy amber with the classic weizen cloudiness. The lacy sides never stopped.

S-Earthy, cloves, spice, lemon zest, and yeasty wheat. It was nicely balanced.

T-Sweet malt, lemon, cloves, pepper, fruit and vanilla spice.

M-Light and refreshing with a moderate amount of carbonation.

Overall-A great hefeweizen for all occasions. I have tried many hefe's and this one is the best. Just perfect for its style and well-balanced. (519 characters)

Appearance: Opaque, toasty brown color. Not as light as many hefes.

Smell: Citrusy -- but not overwhelming. Slightly sweet. Malty. Overall a subtle aroma.

Taste: Now this takes me back to Germany! Has a real Hefe taste, without being too acidic or too strong. Sweet, citrusy, and even a little nutty.

Drinkability: Goes down very easily, especially on a hot summer day. Also, I feel like it's not as harsh as other Hefes. (424 characters)

Of the great German hefes that we get here, this one differentiates itself with more orange. This summer I've been making my way through as many hefes as possible and this one is pretty good. Mouthfeel isnt too light, like so many domestic attempts (pale wheat ale) and is a little bready without that being the overriding flavor. There's a bit of lemon, but I get more orange than anything. Very drinkable of course, go get yourself a bottle. (443 characters)
