This is an exceptional wheat beer that should easily rank amongst the top Hefeweizen styled brews in the world.
A textbook classic, featuring a cloudy copper toned appearance that allows for a giant foamy (bubble bath style) head to fill the glass. Head takes a considerable amount of time to dissipate and leaves extensive lacing around the glass. (Be sure to drink this one from a traditional Weissbier styled glass for full enjoyment).
Super flowery aroma jam packed with the strength of its wheat base plus hints of citrus fruits, clove and a complex selection of malts.
All of the aromas come through in the taste of this beer with complexities of its fruity palette shining through. A beer with great characteristics and with an extremely consistent behavior from the first sip to the very last drop. Enjoy it in good health.
(NOTE: Based on a 500ml bottle sold under the HEFE WEISSE name in Canada. After much digging on the Internet it would appear that although the beer is often sold throughout the world as either WEISSE and HEFE WEISSE, the brew is supposedly the same thing despite packaging differences and the apparent availability of both versions at the same time from the same retailer.)

Ahhhh a nice wheat beer. I do love my stouts but a good refreshing beer like that right after work is genius. Got a lightning closure on this one. Looks really old school with a picture of Georg Pschorr, the dude that made the brewery what it is today.
Served in a ''Blanche de Chambly'' weizen glass. As the name suggest, the cap just popped like crazy spraying me with a bit of beer when I opened it... Almost felt like good old Georg had just spat in my face to tell you the truth. The Hefe has got a NICE orangy-hay color that looks like an inverted tequila sunrise because of the conic bottom of the glass showcasing the hay at the bottom and leaving it's place for the orange/copper at the top. Cloudy and bright orangy when held up to a light. A thick creamy head that hangs around and almost looks yeasty (is that possible...?). Looks good!
Before even putting the glass up to my nose, I could already smell the banana coming from the beer. A little bit of bread, a little bit of citrus, nothing overpowering. First sip reveals a creaminess that I was not expecting. A good carbonation but really fine. Hits you more in the back of the throat than on the tongue.
I get a light banana taste up front then some earthy/bready notes and the finale is all about the orange. I may get some pear on the mix too. Aftertaste is almost absent and burp just taste like beer... As you drink it, you get some thick lacing that kinda remind me of those animal shaped chicken nugget. It eventually thins out. The alcohol really hides itself well in this smooth beer. But you can definitely feel it once you've finished the whole 500ml bottle.
Mr. Pschorr, you have impressed me. A really good German hefeweizen that you should really give a try.

A German Hefe. Maybe I was expecting too much. Overall appearance was good, smell was ok. First drink hit me at the front with a touch of skunk. It went away fast but kind of turned me off. Overall a nice beer, just though it could use just a touch of smoothing out. Definitely a wheat but almost, just barely fell towards the category of a mass produced, less refined beer. Sorry, just my opinion...
