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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.

A hallmark old world Hefe Weisse! A blood orange hue breaks with a thick retentive head that takes its time easing back into this fruity wheat medium bodied beer. Fruit and wheat dominate in both aroma and taste. The most complex aspect of this beer is the aftertaste. It seems to go in stages from an immediate fruity taste, that gives way to a lingering wheat, that fades into a final note of dryness and spice. At this stage, I think I can comfortably call this one of the gold standards for the original style Hefe.

Poured from 330 mL bottle into flared pilsner glass with a moderate hand. Best before 03/14 printed on the label. Funny, I'm a big fan of the style, but have never had Hacker-Pschorr's version. So, here we go.

A: Beautiful cloudy, copper orange color with 3-4 fingers of off-white head. No notable sediment. Head reduced to about 0.5 finger at 5 minutes. Nice retention and lots of lacing. Looking good!

S: Yep, it's a hefe - smells like a great one. Banana forward, vanilla, fruit esters, typical yeast, bubble gum. Uber nice.

T: Sweet and spicy with a very light hop bitterness on the finish. Nicely balanced. Flavors are similar to the scents with big banana and fruit. Light yeasty spice. Maybe a bit more orange than usual. No notable alcohol presence.

M: Moderate to high carbonation. Typical for the style. Good, crisp body. Goes down like a champ.

O: Excellent hefeweizen. I do love a German hefe and this did not disappoint. I can't say that it is the BEST that I've had, but it's top tier for sure. Nothing bad to say. Superb across the board. Didn't last long - glad I have 5 more.

11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy dark amber color. The head is supremely fluffy, eggshell in color, and about two fingers high. Retention is impressive, and lacing is thick but inconsistent.

S: This is well hopped for the style. And that I can appreciate. The typical banana and clove notes are a bit muted here, but the healthy serving of noble hops make up for it quite well.

T: Now this is more like it. The hops exist merely as a drying mechanism on the back end, helping to cleanse the pleasant sweet cream-meets-banana flavors introduced to the palate. It's simplistic, but it's smooth balance means...I kind of want to just drink it instead of review it.

M: It's relatively full bodied and a bit sweet, but that finish really does wonders drying the palate out without going overboard. Carbonation is actually a little subdued, which makes it superb drinkability all the more impressive.

O: This is actually one of my favorite styles when done right - and this is definitely done right. In fact, it's one of those beers where I'm glad I got a six pack instead of a single.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a Guinness glass

A- Hazy warm orange egg yolk color with a high white head that holds for a while and slow dissipates to cloud like fluffs.

S- Spicy clove, lemon, and fruity esters, with a light banana character

T- Crisp clean fruity, light banana, fruity esters, very similar to nose.

M- Medium-light mouthfeel, doesn't stay long the mouth and begs for another taste

O- Very refreshing, great with most food, not as good as some of the other German ones like Weihenstaphaner, but still very good. A very reasonably priced beer as well for about 2.50 a bottle.

Poured a really nice soft white head, pretty solid film retention and lace. Colour is an unfiltered bright orange gold.

S - definitely fruit forward with banana, clove, bubblegum, orange, rich creaminess. Some light pleasant florals, sweet and fruity but enough malt and dryness to balance it nicely.

T - creamy wheat malt, apple, cream, banana, then some nice drying hops bring a mild nutty as well as yeast character that is featured in the crisp creamy ending with lots of banana flavour and some black pepper. Mild spice with estery and pleasant fruity notes, mild toffee, some wheat germ. A fairly standard hefe profile, fruity and creamy, definitely refreshing, a bit sweet.

M - really creamy and textured, full feel with plenty of carbonation. Easy drinking, with a dry fruity ending. Really juicy fruity creaminess.

Pleasant hefe, good example of the style. A good balance of fruity creamy flavours with some dryness and a nice yeast profile. I have a few more and am looking forward to opening them up.
