3.25/5  rDev -20%

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.

4.05/5  rDev -0.2%

A: Pours a cloudy deep golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass + along the sides of the glass as well as some hints of dark peach + apricot highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a finger thick layer covering the entire surface of the beer evenly and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of banana + clove over the top of a light aroma of wheat.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of wheat malts. That is followed by moderate flavors of banana and clove as well as a hint of spicy yeast. Slightly sweet with a hint of lemon citrus as well.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and almost creamy.

O: Extremely easy to drink and refreshing, definitely a nice example of the style and one that I could easily enjoy multiple during a single session.

3/5  rDev -26.1%

Served from a 16.9 0z. bottle.
Decent sized head quickly dissipates, leaving some lacing.
Beer is a bit clearer and darker than many other examples of the style.
Aroma features some offputting burnt, yeasty notes and not much else.
Taste is an improvement with subtle banana and clove notes detectable.
Mouthfeel is nicely medium bodied with an appropriate level of carbonation.
This isn't a bad beer overall but I have problems with the prominence of those odd yeast characteristics in the aroma.
There are several other beers in this style I would choose first.

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...

Got it in Hungary.

A - Excellent sunny golden color, medium carbonation. Tick creamy white foam. Stays long enough.
S - Sweeter notes. Orange and other citrus aroma with some caramel flavor.
T/M - Maybe a bit watery taste. Mostly usual for Hefe Weizen style. Medium carbonation, low bitterness. Highly drinkable, creamy.

O - Classic Hefe..

A - Hazy dark honey. OK head retention and lacing.

S - Estery nose. Usual suspects of banana and clove. Solid intensity.

T - Starts out as a solid hefe, nice banana notes, but as it warms there are some sulfury/cooked corn notes that come through more that are difficult for me to ignore.

M - Light bodied, well carbonated.

O - Good Hefe, i'll drink it fast next time.

Awesome appearance poured from bottle to Duvel Glass.
Great carbonation consistent white head and perfect lacing just like your grandmothers curtains.
Great Taste no overwhelming yeast taste just enough and some banana/citrus
Very easy to drink.

If you like Blue Moon or Shock Top or one of the Macro Wheat beers you have to try the REAL DEAL!

Pours an orange hazy color. Big fluffy head. Smells yeasty, citrus, fruity. Taste is lots of clove, banana, citrus. Kinda sweet. Creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this is prob the best wheat I've sampled. Probably because it is actually brewed in Germany...it makes a difference. Very good!

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

A bit lifeless and dull looking body. Opaque as to be expected, deep apricot orange and a little muddy brown. Nice faint rising carbonation coming up, hitting a very fluffy white colored four finger tall head. Good staying power on that head and manages to make a good long appearance.

Solid hefe nose. Chewy wheat sensations, a hint of clove. Fruit angle is quite mellow on this, and a nice malt crackling grain strangely to go with it also. A nice clean and spritzy quality almost zesty fruit coming out.

Palate seems really dumbed down. Watery bodied malts, and tang like fruit punch flavors. Clean but fleeting. Fruit angle seems more in the aftertaste, but is subtle and a little hint of juiced orange.

Overall though as easy and simple to drink, it comes off pretty weak to style, and really doesn't stack up to much of it's other German counterparts.

A: A cloudy slightly orange color. About two fingers of creamy looking head.

S: Very yeasty, touches of clove and banana.

T: Once again the yeast comes through nicely. A bit of clove and banana again. It has nice bready character though that I didn't quiet notice in the smell. I think there might be a little Munich malt mixed into this as I can get a bit of an almost caramel like sweet bread flavor.

M: Very soft on the palate. The carbonation, while high, is not prickly and makes the beer very refreshing.

O: I enjoyed this beer thoroughly and would recommend it to anyone seeking a good Hefe.

Beautifully full bodied, aromatic, golden wheat, beautiful coloration, with a very satisfying full bodied, and full flavor, of just the right amount of balance between, not to sweet wheat, with a slight mild bit, not bitter, very slight, not to much of a fruity style flavor, with the unfiltered yeast adding to and making of the full body, with a medium weight making this Weiss a very satisfying to the pallet and excellent taste. Very aromatic to the scenes.

Appearance: Creamy amber to straw, fluffy dense head that settles out after a few minutes. Beautiful beer.

Smell: Lots to offer on the nose - very refreshing. Didn't get bubble gum like many others but licorice stood out for me. Orange peel and other citrus, and fresh grass.

Taste: Citrus and orange peel again, didn't really blow me away here but very nice.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, medium-light body. Decent.

Overall: A really good refreshing wheat beer. Would definitely have this one again.

A - very cloudy, orange/brown, pours nice head with a consistent white lead,

S - nice smells - banana, yeast aroma is there...some citrusy odours around

t - sweet, wheat taste with malt and toffee hints.

m - thin, lightly carbonated - a little too flat

o - nice, refreshing hefe - the perfect weekend beer for me, but a little too flat to be really good. but to be fair it was allowed to warm after being bought chilled so maybe this added to the flatness

Wanted to try a German Beer out.

A: Dark amber gold particulates give this beer a warm, almost orange color. Pours a frothy top initially but quickly subsides into a thin film of froth. A bit of lacing, but the beer is not very bubbly.

S: Clean, crisp smell. Fairly fruity with the likes of apple, citrus, mango as well as some floral notes and a slight smell of honest. No hint of alcohol. Overall, a very pleasant if subdued smell.

T: A boozy body that's with a sweet beginning and ends with a sour apple aftertaste. The water is very refreshing, and the wheat flavor is light but noticeable. Light malting and hops make this beer a bit too sour for my taste.

M: Somewhat fizzy, but flat drink that starts off with a splash of flavor. Watery, creamy, and almost a bit sticky. Coats to your throat, giving you that boozy, sour aftertaste. Warms up the body.

O: My bottle may have been stored improperly, but it nevertheless contained a very drinkable beer. Unfortunately, I'm not a big sour beer fan.

Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a weizen.

A: Hazy dark golden hue. Pours a 3 finger, frothy, white head. Settles very slowly. Craters leaving peaks and valleys and residue behind as it does. Spotty yet persistent lacing.

S: Wheat is prominent, honey and lemon citrus also present.

T: Lightly sweetened wheat and yeast.

M: Light and creamy. Pristine. Slightly starchy feel on the palate and finish.

D: Savory.

Atmosphere is really nice. Giant head, plenty of effervescence, sporadic yet persistent lacing. Nose is wheat accentuated with light hints of honey and lemon. Subtly sweet wheat. Pure ans pristine character. Overall, this is a great quaff.

So stoked to finally have Hacker Pschorr available in Las Vegas! By far the best Weisse beer on the market. Great head on the pour. Strong sweet smell. Great cloudy unfiltered look. Taste is crisp and refreshing. Highly recommended to any hefe drinkers this is an original munich weisse beer.

poured from 500ml bottle into weizen glass

A - Cloudy, light, golden straw colour. 2 1/2 fingers of beautiful weiss head with great retention and somewhat decent lacing left on the glass. doesn't pass as much light as you'd expect for such a light coloured beer.

S - medium intensity, herbal & spicy hops, banana, cloves, orange, maybe some red berries hiding in there (strawberry?), no alcohol

T - strong aroma of fcloves, banana, & bubblegum off the top, kind of spicy, somewhat floral, light hop bitterness, orange & maybe coriander

M - Medium body, dry, medium-high carbonation, goes down smooth, medium finish

O - really enjoyed this beer, nothing was overpowering, good balance, not sweet and not too bitter for a hefe, excellently crafted, will buy again

poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

a: cloudy with plenty of head. golden color.

s: typical hefe, slight clove and banana spiciness. had a slight metallic scent.

t: light biscuit. spicey finish. not sure if this 6-pack had been sitting around too long but considering where i live i wouldn't be surprised. the flavor falls flat. not what i would expect from a world class hefe.

m: lively carbonation as expected from a weiss. light, easy drinking beer.

o: i will certainly revisit this beer but i think my sixxer might not have been kept in ideal conditions before my purchase. i've had good examples of hefe's locally and this just felt 'stale'.

A: giant, fluffy white head, fades into a persistent surface covering; cloudy opaque medium-orange color, scattered cohesive arcs and spatters of lacing
S: orange/lemon citrus, spice, coriander, a hint of bubblegum; intoxicating and compelling; I can see where people detect bananas, but I wouldn't have identified it by myself
T: rich, clovey malt/yeasty banana bread, spiced
M: medium-full bodied, crisp but full, ever so slightly dry
O: I had to really think about not assigning it fives across the board. For me, this is the medium-rare prime ribeye of beer: when I think of beer, when I crave a real, satisfying, transcendent beer ... this is what I needed.

Back at the dawn of the beer awakening Pschorr was the first real popular wheat in my area. You could find it only at a few German taverns. The one I used to go to had weisse in bottles and a Lager on tap. It was the first time I ever used a Weizen glass and they served it with a piece of Lemon cause that was the yuppie fad and the rest of us didnt know any better. The Lemons didnt last long.

I'll never forget savoring those big glasses of Pschoor bier, both the weisse and the lager. My weisse still pours beautifully into golden splendor with that rich wheat head. I pour all such wheats and Pils slowly just for pleasure, the smell of the bready yeast slowly filtering into my nose. I love looking at this beer in the light. The carbonation highlights the gold and the rich foam. But the taste and beauty of the foam is well worth an aggressive pour.

Pschoor weisse is a beer you may find yourself gulping if your not careful It has a slight tang at the end of the taste but its one that leaves you impatient for the next gulp. I get a slight bready fruit before a nice dry after taste. This is the kind of dry after taste that leaves you salivating.

Put it this way, after drinking my first Pschoor Weisse I couldnt imagine drinking another beer tonight. Also this is a fabulous brew to wash down food with. I love it most with German pork dishes, sour kraut and a rye bread/good mustard, or like tonight when I will have chicken, a quality sour dough bread, and an excellent chili.

Nothings changed since the days as a young airman i sat in a Bier tent in Germany, or at the bier stube on Irving, drinking a Pschoor weisse. They have cut no short cuts over the decades. this is the weisse others try and copy.
