Cloves, bananas and yeast were most evident in the nose with a nice subtle sweetness. Poured a copper gold with a creamy white head that persisted quite nicely. Clove and banana in flavor with a nice sweetness and a very soft, but pleasant, tang. Very easily drinkable.

On tap at Anam Cara served in the matching Schneider Weisse glass (we'd expect nothing less from Anam Cara).

This beer was breathtaking. A real treat.

Poured a fair gold with with a rich, creamy head. Smells of cloves, banana and yeast with a mellow banana flavor. This beer was a pleasure to drink from the first sip to the last and I look forward to my next visit to Anam Cara for another one of these treats.

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.

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.

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.

Poured from tap at Prost Portland into Schneider branded hefeweizen glass.

Pours with about as gorgeous a head as one could ask for. About 2 inches of magical froth fades to a thick white lace. Hazy straw hue. Perfect.

The most amazing thing about this hefe is the nose. Unlike many others, this one has a LOT going on. The aromas are nicely delineated with banana and clove dominating up front. After a moment one finds the Belgian style yeast and bread note framed by a mild straw aroma with pepper and a hint of anise. I'm content to sit at the bar like a freak with my nose in the glass getting a foamy nose tip!

Flavors are nice and welcoming with yeast dominating. There is more fruit on the palate and a hint of spice and straw all coming together. Good palate, but the nose was much more impressive.

Body is light but the texture is good. Great balance of alcohol, acid, and malts. Finishes with a medium intense finish focused mostly on malt and yeast.

Overall one of the big three of the German hefeweizens (along with Weihenstephaner and Franziskaner) and deserving of being ranked up towards the top with those brews!
