Bought a single bottle of this one from a local German-specialized market.

Appearance - A hazy gold with a tinge of orange; interesting, considering most I've seen always are more of the hazy gold to yellow.

Taste - I wasn't expecting an alcoholy taste up-front. Familiar notes of cloves, bananas and citrus come in after and help round out the finish, but the initial sips were rougher than I was expecting.

Overall - The bold alcoholic flavor is balanced and held back, but that still doesn't change the taste not being as appealing to me. Its not bad, but I'm gladly going to stick to Weihenstephaner if I want a stronger, balanced Hefeweizen.

I'll keep this review in mind, because its possible that I just got a bad bottle.

Simply put - this is an amazing Hefeweizen. It pours so beautifully, a brownish-orange translucent beer with an incredibly creamy head. The smell is fantastic. Citrus, lots of spice, all at perfect levels to create a very tantalizing beer. The taste is just as good. It reminds me quite a bit of Schneider-Weisse Hopfen-weisse but on a milder scale. In fact, it makes it much more drinkable. I'm already in love with this beer. Absolutely amazing.

500 mL flip-top bottle from the LCBO; best before July 2012. Of the German-made hefes commonly available around here, this is the only one I have not yet tried.

Pours a muddy brownish-amber colour, completely opaque with haze. A gigantic frothy, creamy white head erupts from the pour, over three fingers tall at first, and taking many minutes to dissipate fully. Plentiful webs of sticky lacing on the sides of the glass are left in its wake. Nice, fresh aroma; good balance between sweet, bready wheat malts, light citrus, clove spiciness and yeast.

I am in love with this stuff after only one sip. A firm bready wheat malt backbone, with the yeast again being quite prominent. Definitely a banana vibe, with fairly subtle hints of lemonpeel and cloves. Yeasty aftertaste, with some lingering clove spiciness. Medium-bodied, with a silky, creamy feel in the mouth, largely due to the relatively soft carbonation for the style.

This is a fabulous beer that I really can't find any gripes with. It is a textbook hefe without a doubt, one to use as a yardstick when comparing others.

Final Grade: 4.18, a very respectable A-. Schneider Weisse has been my favourite hefe for years, but Hacker Pschorr Weisse definitely gives it a run for its money. I will certainly be buying this again in the summer, and any hefe fan would be a fool to not give this one a chance.
