look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

This is a caramel coloured brew ith clarity consistent with the subject. It pours a very slight island lace and glass ring. The body is full.
This is a very sweet brew that does not cut the thirst, it produces it.
This product certainly left me wanting.

Dayton, OH AleFest: As much as I luv German beers, this one was a disappointment as there was nothing all that special about it and it lacked character.On to my rating...small sized white head with fine sized bubbles.The body was clear and it contained some carbonation.The nose was malty, hoppy, citrus and spicy.The flavor was lightly bitter tasting and there were notes of malt and hops.The mouthfeel of this beer was smooth and light bodied.

2.58/5  rDev -37.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle (produced 12/07):

A: Poured a hazy pale orange with a white head that dissolved fairly quickly. Fair amount of carbonation streaming from bottom of glass.

S: Aroma of a typical wheat beer. Somewhat bready with some citrus.

T: Taste kind of follows aroma, fairly typical wheat, but appears a little watered down and has too much carbonation. Wheat/grain flavor with slight citrus hint. Flavor pretty weak overall.

M/D: Beer had medium body, but as stated above it appeared to be watered down and had too much carbonation. I am not sure if it is due to the fact that it was produced some 7 months ago, but this is an average at best Weisse and would probably not buy again as there are better, but after reading some of the other reviews, it appears that maybe I got a bad bottle, so I may be more willing to try again, either on tap or a bottle.

12oz bottle, 5.5% ABV
Apperance: Nice white rocky head, foamy lace, smooth. Golden wiese color. A little cloudy.

Nose: Lemon, Clean, Wheat.

Taste: Bitter at first, a lot of hops initially on the tounge, the bitterness stays throughout. Not as complex as i thought it would be.

2.78/5  rDev -32.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Appearance:
Cloudy orange/yellow color. Huge white head with some staying power.

Smell:
A little bit of a fresh, citrusy smell. Not particularly strong.

Taste:
A little sour... somewhat bland. There's a slight bitterness at the end of a sip, but not much at all. Just enough to say it exists.

Mouthfeel:
Carbonation isn't too harsh, but it is slightly watery. Not impressed.

Drinkability:
Again, nothing remarkable. I could drink a lot of these, but there's plenty of other beers I would choose over this one.

N.B. I don't drink hefe weizen's often, but I have had them before, and I recall thinking it was a fairly tasty. This review is of the 2nd of a pair of the same kind I got together. I had thought perhaps something bad had happened to the first one since I didn't think it was particularly good, but the 2nd was the same so... here's my review. :P

Edit: well 2 hrs or so of sipping later, I still had some left in my glass, with no desire to finish it. (Drinkability not so good?)

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Aroma is a bit of citrus and banana woven together. Pretty dead on for style, if not a little muted.

A little bit of banana esters and clove spices are evident at the front of the beer, but they are fairly weak and don't add all that much to the flavor. Carbonation seems fairly high in this beer. There's a sweetness with a bit of an off flavor on the finish, which reminds me a bit of honey. No hops are detected in this beer.

As far as hefe's go, I've definitely had better. I can't color myself impressed with the muted tastes up front and the odd taste in the back.

2.88/5  rDev -29.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Had from a tap in a quiet restaurant/bar.

A beautifully inviting cloudy gold color with a half inch of lasting foam.
The smell was light and citrusy and I found the flavor to lack the depth of additional spiciness found in my favorite wheat beers. The carbonation allowed the beer to penetrate the entire mouth very quickly, but the flavors disappeared just as fast after swallowing.
In all, this is a gorgeous beer to stare at. Maybe better left on the table though, and not in your mouth.

I tried this beer on June 29, 2007 after purchasing it from my local LCBO store. The aroma is slightly pungent with a wheaty punch. The colour is a cloudy peachy colour with a very large white coloured head. The mouthfeel is thick and fuzzy to the cheeks with mild carbonation. The taste is thick and wheaty as well. Not a beer I will go out of my way to try again.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Golden yellow, little head.

Wheaty and clovey, but smells a little artificial somehow.

Typical wheat, clove and banana. Heavy on the clove and kind of dense feeling.

Mouthfeel lacking a pop I associate with the style. Uncarbonated and syrupy.

Something was off for me on this one. Maybe it's been sitting around awhile at the bar?

We did a blind tasting of hefeweizens by Schneider, Weihenstephaner, Paulaner and Hacker-Pschorr. Weihenstephaner was a clear winner, while the Hacker-Pschorr was the most disappointing of the bunch.

The best thing about this hefe is its classic appearance, which could almost be a template for all other examples. An aggressive pour results in a wonderful glowing gold liquid, with a large frothy white head that lasted well, and put down some spots of lace. Scent is very mild and underplayed, but typical to the style once it emerges. Its like someone has taken the regular hefeweizen scent of bananas and clove, dialled it back, and added a hint of plastic. Definite room for improvement here.

Sweet banana and grain flavour, with a dose of citrus. There's nothing I can particularly criticise the flavour for, but there's also little that stands out for praising. There's perhaps more of an emphasis on the wheat than usual, and the banana is milder than you'll find in a lot of other weizens, which isn't particularly my preference. Any clove and bubblegum notes are so subtle as to be unnoticeable.The carbonation is definitely more assertive than expected, but manages to err away from harshness, and the softness of the impact produces a nice fuller feel.

The crappy aroma and uninspiring flavour make me feel that this bottle is old, though inspection indicates otherwise. With a lot of hefes freshness is key... I'll probably give this one another go yet.

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

Tall, flip-top half litre bottle, best before 03/2012, poured into a Franziskaner Weissbier glass in Oct 2011.

Only got three quarters of the bottle into the glass, so huge was the head (and how I poured it I suppose). The body is a moody, dull, murky dishwater brown, the head as already stated was huge and creamy.

The usual Hefeweizen smells, but subdued not in your face vanilla, bananas or explosions of yeast from this beer, a gentler aroma comes out.

The taste is also subdued compared to a lot of the Hefeweizen I've encounted over the years. It's fine, but lacks anything to take it above the stand out ones and is just an average brew in my eyes.

Cloudy yellow color with a thick head and citric (pineapple) aroma. I find German Wheat beers to be a little on the sweet side for my tastes. I found this to be very similar to Paulaner.

Poured a cloudy gold. Some nice lace but the head disipated quickly. Smelled very nice with some floral and spicy notes but these were lost to the breadyness when actually tasted. I've had much better wheat beers than this but I would probably drink it again.

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

Pours out a cloudy tangerine with a somewhat rocky, yet not very thick, head. The nose is of light phenols with an overall grainy presence. Not very interesting. Overall, too subdued. The flavor is mostly malty with subtle wheat, grain, and phenolic flavors. Thins out an becomes kind of watery. Mouthfeel is quite thin with not enough carbonation. Aside from the way it looks, this is pretty much your average hefe. Not bad, but not great. This pales in comparison to their dunkelweizen.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a thick white head that holds up for a while. Smells like banana and spices. The taste is a bit sweet and fruity. Carbonation is about right but this beer seems a bit watery. This beer is drinkable but there aer many other hefes i prefer over this one.

poured out a very thick foamy head and a cloudy lemon-ish orange color with darker hues swirling through out. took a while for the foaminess to settle down. Aroma was musty, fruity and I hate to say but smelled a bit like a wet dog. It had an slight apple and sour note and finished with a bready musty end. mouth feel was soft and chunky. It was an ok beer, but I felt one would do me just fine.

cheers

Appearance: Cloudy golden yellow with a medium head and some lacing left on the glass afterwards.

Smell: Malt and grain.

Taste: Malt with some clove spice flavor but not as pronounced as with other Hefeweizens. Somewhat dry and bitter tasting and lacked the subtle malt sweetness I like in other Hefeweizens.

Drinkability: This was an average Hefeweizen. Definately drinkable but not one of the best out there.

Hay orange in color, with a very beautiful white fluffy head.
The smell is strong, with sharp notes of yeast, cloves, banana.
Same for the taste, strong. Full taste, with a very strong yeastiness, with cloves.
A very in-style weizen, with all the standard notes. Very strong.
Maybe a bit less drinkability for that.

Pours a humongous head, white, somewhat lasting, creamy looking. Yellow-orangish color, very fizzy looking. Very flowery aroma, reminiscent of a triple. Slight flowery taste. Slightly watery taste. Very light taste.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured a 500-ml bottle into a pub glass.

Appearance - hazy orange colour with notable carbonation and good head. Big bubbles, and lingering lace.

Smell - balanced aromas of citrus, barley, caramel and hops. Hints of wood and nutmeg.

Taste - lots of different complex flavours including spicy and piney hops right at the beginning. As this subsides there is a major grainy flavour which continues right through the swallow and lingers with citrus-orange notes.

Mouthfeel - each sip is definitely an interesting effect, carbonation is substantial.

Drinkability - I'd say that the complex flavours are appreciable at first but I find the beer too active to have more than one.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

This pours coppery greenish with nice white fluffy head.

Smell is a bit faint. Bread and beer.

Taste is, to me, bland. As it should be, but nothing really sets it aside from an American macro. Maybe some malt and yeast comes through the watery taste.

Mouthfeel is good, though. Somewhat creamy.

Finish is very clean. just like water. Too much like water.

Drinkable? It would be easy to consume a hundred of these things.

Perhaps a good crossover beer, or hot day beer when you just dont feel like having water. I personally would prefer something a little more robust.

My local store had this on sale at $8.99 for a 12 pack. This pours thick with a nice head. Smell is sweet like cotton candy. Taste is rich and creamy, not too sweet. Mouthfeel is smooth. Finishes very clean for a weisse beer. I like this and will drink it again, although it's not a great session beer.

Hazy golden amber with a good white head. Good lacing.
Lots of banana and vague ripe fruit in the nose.
Taste features more bready malts but still has a solid banana note, along with a bit of clove.
Rather high carbonation, but this seems appropriate for this brew. Near medium body. Crisp.

O: a solid German Weiss, but not a favored style.

A- Translucent mango colour with a very foamy head. Reminded me of desert topping.

S- Sweet malts, clove and banana, slight wheat and skunk.

T- Banana, cloves, and malt, and then a bunch more cloves.

M- Very creamy and smooth. Only felt slightly carbonated.

D- An alright beer. I think they emphasized the cloves far too much, and I think it's a big flaw. Aside from that it has some good characteristics. Won't be buying it again though.
