3.58/5  rDev -12.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Deep golden...hazy...frothy head that stays.
Smell is kind of faint...typical banana , fruity aroma..mild spice.
Tastes a little watery to me... sweet banana and clove, maybe some lemon in the background. Doesn't improve much on warming.
medium/ light body.
Not in the same class as Weihenstephaner or Franziskahner , but a decent hefe for sure. Good thirst quencher. Went well with a fish dinner.

Poured an excellent golden color with a bright white head into a pilsner glass. Not as cloudy as expected and I thought I got all of the sediment out of the bottle, too. Probably the best-smelling hefe I've had with a sweet banana bread smell or even nut bread. Great yeasty and fruity and nutty smells all together. Taste is very nutty and bready as well. Not as spicy or clovey as some others which I thought was good. Medium-bodied with sharp carbonation felt on tongue. Drinkability is high for me and is one of the top 3 hefes I've had.

doing a re-review of this beer as after reading my first review it is obvious I had no clue.

brownish honey colored beer that left a lot of head due to an over-aggressive pour. Typical cloudiness associated with this type,

smells of slight spice & some floral hints

Taste: Wow. Banana hits you like a fottball linebacker and then the spicy aftertones make for an interesting ride. Seemed a bit thicker and more chewy than other Weisse's i've sampled. For my tastes, just the right amount of carbonation here.

A smooth, interesting beer. Love it.

a weiss standard! Very cloudy golden hue. Pours a huge 1.5" well-retaining head...lots of floral hints...some orange, lemon and banana flavors. Very creamy but still high on drinkability. A touch below schneider weiss but much better than most of the domestic attempts at the style....I will revisit this soon...some spiciness but less than say Paulaner....but also less bitter than Paulaner hefe. A very good beer!

3.83/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4.5

A - A hazy brew with the color of a dried apricot and a large frothy head that lingers for about three minutes and leaves scattered specks of lacing behind.

S - Faint cloves and nectarines over a wheat breadiness. A touch of banana.

T - Flavor is mild, yet quite nice. A bit of light wheat malt with a touch of apricot flavor and some faint spiciness.

M - Thin, a little harsh, a first it seems to dry, but all and all, quite refreshing.

D - Great. A hefeweizen, so naturally drinkable, but this one goes above and beyond that even. Although it has a mild flavor, it seems very full, and still goes down like a glass of water. A pleasant hefe for certain.

Poured from a 16.9 oz bottle I got with a Weisse glass, this bier pours a pale cloudy golden colour with greating lacing and a beautiful head. The taste is of great cloves and spices a hint of bannana I simply just love this bier it is great and I recommend it to anyone who loves a good weisse.

This beer is fantastic. Really crisp and fresh tasting, with just the perfect amount of carbonation. The smell is evenly balanced between citrus and wheat. The taste was all citrus however, just perfect without being over imposing. Finishes completely clean and smooth. Just a well crafted beer, one that I could drink all night long.

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

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.

APPEARANCE

A nice gold color. Looks like a traditional wheat beer with lots of head retention.

SMELL
Smells excellent. Smells just like banannas.

TASTE
Not much of a taste. It's not bad, but it does not have much flavor. Does not taste like it smells. Taste very plain, but not in a bad way.

MOUTHFEEL
It is coarsed and well carbonated.

DRINKABILITY
It is ok. I will have this beer again, but it is not very flavorful, therefore, it could easily be forgotten.

3.63/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: pours a hazy yellow color with a short 1" head that falls slowly. No lacing develops.

Smell: banana and spices are easily picked up.

Taste: mild wheat malt profile with banana, clove, yeast spiciness, pear sweetness, hay, and a soft bitterness. I can only describe this as a bit watered down and thin overall.

Mouthfeel: lightly crisp from start to finish. Brief afteraste. Light-medium in body.

Drinkability: this didn't overly excite me for the style as it wasn't really that refreshing and just seemed thin. Overall just an OK beer that looks and smells better than the taste.

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

Poured into a pint glass

Appearance-Slighty cloudy light amber-tan with an good, tight, fluffy white head with excellent staying power. Not much lace.

Aroma- Citrusy. Slightly fruity and malty to. No hop nose at all. Slightly bready.

Taste- Just about perfect for a hefe. Slightly sweet at the fore-front. Very citrusy as it glides past your tounge and into your jowels and the back of your throat.

Mouthfeel is full for a hefe. Perfect carbonation. Just a bit of CO2 bite at the tip of the tounge.

Drinkability-Good. Quite nice for a hefe. Not an extremely easy drinking beer for hot days in the yard, but a nice, easy drinking evening beer. Would go great with a big burger.

Poured a golden orange color, with a nice white head. It didn't leave much lacing if any and it was not as cloudy as I would have expected. Very faint aroma, some spiciness to it. Tasted peppery, slight banana, flavor seemed to dissipate as it warmed. Nicely carbonated, creamy. Very drinkable beer, overall tasted fine but I have had better hefes. I may need to re-review this beer next time I get it, something seemed to be off.

Poured into a H-P Hefe glass.

A - Cloudy, yellow, with a nice fluffy white head.

S - Malty, wheat, yeasty, with citrus notes. Didn't get the cloves and bananas I got when I had it from the bottle.

T - A touch of sweetness, wheat character big time here, just the slightest kiss of hops.

M - Solid medium body, extremely clean, PERFECT carbonation.

D - Line 'em up, I'll knock 'em down.

I consider this beer is something of a classic. It is a widely available, German hefeweizen that is true to style (near as my simple mind can tell) and wonderful.

It pours a cloudy tan/yellow with an abundant, fluffy white head with excellent staying power.

This beer is frequently served with a slice of some sort of fruit, which I could take or leave. Even without it, it smells light, fruity, slightly malty, and citrusy.

Taste is full, slightly sweet, and extremely pleasant. As I said, it is true to style.

Mouthfeel is full without being exhausting. I find this beer to be somewhat drinkable, but I probably wouldn't suck down more than two of these tall beers.

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

Appearance - Pours a nice golden orange color with a fluffy cloudlike head that hangs around for awhile. Some lacing is present.

Smell - It has some spiciness to it and some yeast, but the wheat and banana are the stars here ladies and gentlemen.

Taste - Big banana flavor with some wheat as well. Some bubblegum makes itself known and right at the end of the experience there is a subtle, smooth, sweet, creaminess that is a little hard to describe, but it's there.

Mouthfeel - A little thin with plenty of carbonation. The carbonation isn't overpowering though.

Overall - I really haven't experienced enough of the German Hefe-Weizens to really compare this one to, but if this is a prelude of what is to come, then I'm pumped. A tasty little Hefe, which will be revisited many times. Prost!!

Amazing head on this beer. explosive.I had to pour this into a twenty ounce glass and still had to dive in nose first to keep it from ending up all over the floor. After seeing that I was expecting a hell of a hefe, but all I got was an average one,at least for a German Import. What's my gripe? It's watery. and that was enough to bring this down at least a point for me. All of the flavors of the style are present,and I like the finish, but when you take that first sip, there's a little disappointment. Personally, I'll stick with Paulaner. Having said all this, and in the interest of fairness, if this was a beer from an American micro brewery I'd be heaping praise upon it, but when you're brewing beer in Munich, you better be able to keep up with the big boys.
The drinkability of this beer is good, and it would be real welcome after a hot day mowing the lawn, but at $9.00 a six pack you won't be sucking down too many of these in your lawn chair.

Poured a pale straw color with a mushroom-cloud of head.
First tastes of wheat and malt, with coriander and a bit of banana following. Not much else.
Mouthfeel is smooth, but a bit watery, with enough carbonation. This beer is very drinkable, but I prefer Paulaner and Weihenstephaner to it. Not a bad hefeweizen, but not my favorite either.

A: Golden with a tinge of amber. Pours a good amount of head with great retention and some lacing.

S: Though faint, a pleasant aroma of citrus and cloves come through.

T: Above average for this style. Taste a lot like it smells and seams to linger on the tounge for a bit.

M: Relatively a full mouthfeel.

D: Very drinkable. Especially in the warmer months.

Recommended.

$2.99 (?) at Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA. in Spetember 2006, tasted in October. Pours a pretty slightly cloudy yellow-gold with very nice white head and a very steady stream of carbonation in my Schneider Weisse glass.

Aroma isn't real strong, but a very nice wheaty, softly aromatic lemon. Quite nice!

Flavor is much the asme as the aroma brought real. A yeasty graininess and a pungent lemon flavor. Quite refreshing and very tasty. Mouthfeel is spot on.

Recommended.

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

This is an above-average hefe, but lacks that extra something to put it into the top echelon.

It poured with a gold body with some peach highlights and a nice, foamy one-finger head. This beer probably has the strongest banana aroma of any hefe I've had, but it crowds out the spicer, clovier smells a little bit.

Banana, sweet bubblegum and yeast dominated a flavour that was in keeping with the smell, though it came up a little short. The mouthfeel was a bit thin and watery. All the elements of a good hefe are there, but this beer seemed a little bland in the end.

I could drink this beer all day. I have had it on tap, with a lemon wedge, and that is great, but mostly, I can only get it in a bottle.

The head is thick, and eventually desolves to a lace. The appearance is dark amber, and sort of cloudy.

The smell and taste have a light hint of citrus, and a spice that I can't peg, since I am new to describing beer taste.

I normally serve it in a tall weiss beer glass, at room temp. On a hot day, maybe cool it for awhile, and it really hits the spot.

a very satisfying brew.
-poured from 500 ml bottle into a tulip glass
a light straw color with a thick rocky head that reduces to a thin lace
-smells citrusy with a slight hoppyness
-slight citrusy tang (coriander?) with a subtle maltyness, hops are notacable but only slightly
-rather thin mouthfeel high carbonation but not agressivly so
-highly drinkable, would be a great hot weather beer

i realy liked this beer, i wish it was more readily avalable in my provence (saskatchewan) reminded me of hoggaden but better
i may have consumed it a bit to cold,(6 c)

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

Pours an unfiltered straw and gold color with a couple finger of snow white head. Lots of bubble columns.

Smells of spice and citrus, some banana, a little smoke, and wheat.

Taste is sweet with a sharp bite of citrus and CO2 up front and a mellower banana flavor a little farther in. The clove is barely apparent in the finish, as is the rest of the CO2 and a banana essence that lingers ofr a second or two.

Mouthfeel is excellent, and everything you'd expect of a good hefe. Has body, but ends up being very light in the end, and the flavors just dance off your tongue. Lots of CO2, but not overpowering or out of whack. Really adds to the crispness.

Overall a great, refreshing beer. If you want something really light but dont want to surrender flavor, this one is a sure winner. This is really good. Very flavorful, good body, and terribly refreshing. An excellent example of the style.

I purchased this 500mL bottle since it was on sale in Jersey for $1.69
Pours nicely into a pint glass with thick foamy head that lasted for a good 3 minutes. After dissipating I was left with 2/3 of a glass of beer.
Appearance: Nice golden color. The beer is translucent and looks to have lost most of its carbonation. I'm eager to taste it.
Smell: Smells like a Hefeweizen; sweet banana, clove, and candy
Taste: Pretty well balanced and isn't as sweet as it smells. I expected much more sugar to come through. Hoppy flavors come through the banana forefront. This beer finishes with a pleasant flavors of spice and alcohol.
Mouthfeel: Small effervescence hits my mouth and quickly subsides. Most of the carbonation seems to have been lost in the pour. This beer goes down easily.
Drinkability: I would drink this beer a lot in the summer months if it was more readily available and wasn't so expensive (30+ per case). However, I could just as easily buy a cheaper Hefe from a craft brewery and be just as satisfied.
Overall, it is a solid beer.
