look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A - Hazy, straw colored. A good amount of carbonation and a very large head. Minor amounts of lacing.
S - The smell is wheaty and vaguely citrus. Not quite as large of a nose as its fellow Hefeweizen/Hefeweissbier Weihenstephaner. It does have its own character though; one which is very pleasing.
M - Crisp and refreshing. Leaves a wheaty aftertaste. It isn't too heavy or too light- its just right.
T - If one was to subtract most of the banana element from Weihenstephaner, leave the clove, add a little more wheat, reduce the carbonation, and reduce the sweetness, one would have Hacker-Pschorr. Truly, a smooth and great tasting Hefeweizen.
D - The drinkability factor is where Hacker excels. Due to reduced sweetness, this beer is more drinkable than Weihenstephaner. In fact, though I prefer the taste of Weienstephaner, if one was to enter the world of Hefeweizens for the first time I would recommend Hacker over Weihenstephaner because of its drinkability. Considering it retains more of a wheaty beer taste, it would be much easier for the non-Hefeweizen beer drinker to relate to.
