500 mL bottle. Orange-amber color and cloudy with a tall fluffy head. Spot on for a hefeweizen. Mild banana and clove in the aroma. The flavor pops with tons of fruit and the clove takes a backseat. A little more full bodied that some of its German counterparts, but easy to drink nonetheless. While it might be a notch below some of my favorites for the style (Ayinger, Andechs, Weihenstephaner), it's still a winner if you're looking for an authentic German hefeweizen.

Too much has been written about this beer and I realize my propensity to pontificate is palpable (just read any of my previous reviews and this will be evident,
alliteration aside). 11.2 oz. bottle was stayed poured into an English pint glass. Leaving the last bit of beer at the bottom of the bottle, I agitated softly until the remaining sediment was in suspension, then poured into the glass. The result, producing two and one half fingers of brilliant, wispy white, little snow head that dissipated extremely slowly to a medium thin line that remained until the glass was empty. Nice lacing despite the low surface tension characteristic of the inappropriate glass and the softened water used to clean it. On the medium-light side of honey gold, translucent through the cloudy but uniform din of appearance, perfection. bringing this to the nose produces a fruit forward banana, canned pears, faint clove- spice flavor. This mirrored smell with the fruit forward banana flavor asserting it's self with a pear and very slight metallic report right at the end..hence canned pears (I'm thinking a bi-product of the yeast which was not at all offensive). Well balanced, on the luxurious-creamy side of medium N I R V A N A. Absolutely delicious.

Smell: not particularly remarkable.

Taste is the most remarkable aspect of this beer. It's a nice balance of wheat beer, and spice flavor (clove), being likely phenolic yeast and/or hops and not actually clove. It has an extremely strong similarity to some Unibroue stuff I've had (Blanche de Chambly I think). I don't think I could tell the difference between this and the Unibroue. No strong woodiness or bitterness aftertastes, and well-mixed flavors. I personally do not notice any citrus or really any fruit taste (unlike a Kronenbourg Blanc which tastes totally different from this), and personally I find the wheat beer flavor is a little bit hidden by the yeast and/or spices/hops as well.

Mouthfeel is very balanced. Medium carbonation with nice light but smooth texture.

Overall great beer; recommended to those who like this style, or Unibroue. Didn't notice a ton of wheat beer taste though. if that's the main thing you're looking for.

Best by 1/15.

Aroma is dominated by wheat, with notes of peach, orange, banana, and clove adding complexity.

Flavor reveals more pronounced banana initially, contrasted nicely by sharp orange, with soft peach and coriander leading to a bready, wheaty, dry, peppery finish. Notes of apple and pear surface as it warms.

Fairly complex estery character, but it falls flat in the finish.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy orange with a thick meringue of a head.

Banana, bread, and wheat notes fill out the aroma. Flavor has a slight citric twang to it to.

Full mouthfeel for a lower alcohol beer. Crisp, smooth, medium body, and active carbonation.

Good beer but what I'm assuming is 6 mo in the bottle makes it a little underwhelming.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Veiled gold color going for amber. Gorgeous foamy head that dies fast.

Well balanced aromas and flavors of sweetness and bitterness. Slight floral spices.

Super tasty and fresh wheat taste with a dash of honey.

Silky rich and warming. Medium body with champagne like carbonation.

A faint and short finish, but well balanced.

Overall an extremely well crafted beer!

Great wheat beer lots of lacing and a good head. Had it with a splash of Framboise Peach and it was excellent. Nice banana and cloves Good on the front end especially with the splash.

Bottle poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass

A: Pours very hazy golden amber with a creamy off white head.

S: Banana with a little spice, a little sweet wheat.

T: Wheat malt, nice fruity notes, of course banana, but also a little white peach and apricot, a little spice, and light citrus and floral notes.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, very smooth.

O: Not the freshest bottle, pushing it's best by date actually, but I quite like this beer with a bit of age on it more than many others of the style fresh. The trademark banana notes are still there, but not as overwhelming as they can be, allowing the depth of flavor to come out.

Best by 04.2014.
Poured from a pint bottle into a weizen glass on 01.31.14.

A: Orange. Opaque at top because of the yeast cloud. See through at bottom. 2 finger head.

S: Orange, clove.

T: Banana, orange, spicy clove.

M: Creamy smooth.

O: This is a Paulaner cousin. (Hacker-Pschorr and Paulaner are owned by Heineken). It has a bit more banana flavor than Paulaner's hef, otherwise, it's almost a clone. It's a fantastic hef. The flavors are strong, which I prefer. Excellent.

330 ml bottle was poured into a hefeweizen glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy pale yellow color with good vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Banana, clove, bready wheat, vanilla, sweet wheat.

Taste: Same as above. It's like eating a loaf of banana bread.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light bodied, tart, chewy, and low to medium carbonation.

Overall: Still think the Germans rule this style. Classic and traditional.

4/5  rDev -2.2%

Appearance: Cloudy, orange-ish color with two fingers of fluffy head that lingers quite a while with chunky lacing.

Aroma: Yeasty, wheaty, faint citrus, some banana and clove.

Taste: Slightly creamy, a little juicy, then building yeast funk, a little spiciness, some banana oil, finishes a bit astringent with lingering wheat malt.

The Rest: Awesome, a benchmark of the style. Checks all of the boxes of a good Hefe.

500ml bottle. 05/14. Pours a slightly hazy pale amber colour with a towering off-white head. Aroma of cloves, banana and wheat. Subdued sweetness with a hint of citrusy tartness. Medium-light body, smooth, soft texture with an effervescent fizz and a dry finish.

3.25/5  rDev -20.5%

330ml bottle poured in a pint glass. Yellow to orange color, with a healthy white head of foam. Smells like orange. Taste is sweet with the bitterness of lemon. Peach flavor with a hint of banana. Leaves a decent aftertaste, a lot like dry fruit and a bit skunky. Overall, good. Definitely not the best Hefeweizen I've tasted.
