A solid refreshing weizen/wheat. Great for refreshment in the summer and always a thirst quencher. Carbonated like all other wheats so let it breath once you pour it form the bottle. An overall excellent German wheat that is hard to beat for quality and taste.

Pours a cloudy golden/orange color. A huge fluffy white head presents itself instantly upon being poured. Aromas of wheat, bananas, lemon zests, and clove come across. I detected a slight crisp tartness of citrus upon the first taste, followed by the spiciness of cloves, finishing off with yeasty bread undertones. This is a great medium bodied hefe.

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.

Cloudy golden color with a huge white cloud top head, champagne-like carbonation, lots of sticky lace, a truly superior appearance. Rich aroma of cloves with pronounced wheat notes, quite pleasing. Taste begins with tangy lemon notes, followed by spicy clove flavors and pepper notes, and finishing with mildly bitter hops, all riding atop the solidly bready wheat backbone. The finish is slightly dry. An excellent example of the style.

Appearance: A hazey, golden-orange beer with a white head. It started out coarse, but settled down to a thin, dense layer. It sheeted the glass nicely when tipped, but didn't leave much lace behind as I downed the beer. There was a sustained bead during the entire drink, but it was very heavy at first. It made the beer sparkle nicely in the glass.

Smell: The smell was a combination of spice (mainly clove) and a tart fruitiness. There were some mild yeast aromas as well.

Mouthfeel: This was a light bodied beer with good carbonation. It wasn't overly smooth, but I don't like my wheat beers to be really smooth.

Taste: The first thing that I noticed was a crisp, lemon-like tartness. When that faded, some thick wheat flavors filled the mouth, along with yeast. There was a little bit of spice on the finish, but overall this beer ended pretty dry, leaving me wanting more.

This was my first try at this wheat beer. It is definitely worth picking up.

(I've marked this as "on-tap" since that's what my most recent tasting of it was -- though I regularly have it in bottles as well)

It's got a great looking head, so when it's served in the proper glass, it's truly beautiful. I had this most recently served in a Hacker Brau glass with a neat spiral look to the glass...the head was just popping up over the lip of the glass a tiny bit. Just looked great with the light reflecting off the angles in the glass and through the beer's cloudiness.

A lot of people find the sweetness and carbonation of wheat beers like this to be difficult to handle in mass quantities. However, my drinking buddies and I would regularly get a 3L boot of this to pass around the circle and drink it down like a champ. It may seem wasteful to quaff such a fine beer in such a manner. But I relay this story only to emphasize one thing: I can drink this beer over and over and over and over. It's a staple of my drinking and beer purchasing and is, for me, one of the beers I'll regularly by as a 6 pack to go watch football with a friend or something. It's just so easy to drink...

...and so incredibly tasty! Standard zesty wheat beer flavors. Drinking it, especially after you haven't had it in a while, is like dancing through lemon tree groves. One of my favorite wheat beers.

A hazy, slightly yellowish-orange Weiss with a large creamy off-white head. The smell is slightly citrus, slightly banana with a hint of spice. I taste the malt first along with a bit of spice, then pepper, and a citrus bitter finish. It has a moderate body with a slight silky feeling in my mouth. A very good Weiss brewed according to the German Law of Purity of 1516.

Pors a very cloudy deep orange with amber highlights. The head is large and exceptionally dense. It fades very, very slowly into a rocky layer of white foam atop the beer. Curiously, minimal lacing was left on the glass; the foam seemed to want to stay together. What was left was a thick sheet that slowly sid down to rejoin the rest of the foam. The aroma is clove, banana, and wheat spiciness with just a hint of hops. Sort of standard fare for a wheat, but very well balanced and inviting. The taste is very good, with a nice yeastiness. This bready component is accented by banana and clove flavors. The wheat puts a sharp bite on the finish, and the hops clean the palate. The mouthfeel is full but astringent, giving it a refreshing quality. Great for a summer afternoon. The dinkability is top notch, as I finished a good bit of this one in the first couple minutes. A great beer for drinking when you're thirsty, but still want flavor a a solid mouthfeel. No watery weisse in this bottle! A very good weisse.

Pours a cloudy light orange with a huge head that hangs out for a few minutes while you start to drink. The smell is very much citrus fruits and cloves. This is a very refreshing and crisp beer and I can't wait to try it again in the summer. Taste is of citrus fruits, then a little spicy and dry in the finish. I'm not a huge fan of weiss beers, but this one was very enjoyable and one of the few I would buy again.

The color of this hefe weisen is best described as a dark cloudy orange with a thick white head that leaves a fine lace down the inside of the glass. Like most other hefes, I get a slight banana and clove smell from it. This selection is not heavy in carbonation and has a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Overall, I rank this among some of the top hefes I have tasted and would recommend it for any occasion.

Pours a hazy deep golden color with a massive foamy and creamy white head that coats the sides of the glass while drinking. Nose is sweet overripe banana with a touch of clove. Thick and full in the mouth (especially for the style). Taste is very fruity with notes of juicy banana and spice and a bit of a yeasty maltiness. I could drink these all day and all night long with no problem. A truly outstanding brew.

This is an exceptional wheat beer that should easily rank amongst the top Hefeweizen styled brews in the world.

A textbook classic, featuring a cloudy copper toned appearance that allows for a giant foamy (bubble bath style) head to fill the glass. Head takes a considerable amount of time to dissipate and leaves extensive lacing around the glass. (Be sure to drink this one from a traditional Weissbier styled glass for full enjoyment).

Super flowery aroma jam packed with the strength of its wheat base plus hints of citrus fruits, clove and a complex selection of malts.

All of the aromas come through in the taste of this beer with complexities of its fruity palette shining through. A beer with great characteristics and with an extremely consistent behavior from the first sip to the very last drop. Enjoy it in good health.

(NOTE: Based on a 500ml bottle sold under the HEFE WEISSE name in Canada. After much digging on the Internet it would appear that although the beer is often sold throughout the world as either WEISSE and HEFE WEISSE, the brew is supposedly the same thing despite packaging differences and the apparent availability of both versions at the same time from the same retailer.)

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

Appearance: Has a golden body with an interesting orange streak down the middle of my wheat beer glass. Typical cloudy appearance with a massive foamy head that sticks like crazy. Oh, do I love the look of German wheat beers...

Smell: Fruity as all hell...banana the strongest. Cloves, bubblegum, all the expected aromas. Has a touch of spiciness too.

Flavor: A phenomenol blend of bananas, cloves, bubblegum, spiciness, wheat tartness, and lemon. Very full flavored and well-balanced. Ends with a bit of sourness. Wow...

Mouthfeel: Crisp and refreshing with a medium, oily body that goes down really easily.

Drinkability: Way up there... This is my first time trying anything from Hacker-Pschorr and I'm quite impressed. Give me a warm summer day, a deck to relax on, and a big glass of this and I'm a happy man.

Pours a light golden colour with nice white head. Hints of citrus in flavour and aroma. If you are into the style you'll definitely love this beer. Great brew by the Germans...

Except for the Weihenstephen I had on tap at the Heidelberg in NYC, this is my favorite wheat beer. It has an awesome orange glow and a head that is impossible to keep in the glass. It has somewhat subdued banana aroma and flavor but the clove flavor and aroma is right on the money. Somewhat sweeter, bigger malt base, and less carbonation than Paulaner make this much more drinkable. It has a creamy mouthfeel, vanilla flavors and a very long finish. If you are a fan of Paulaner, try one of these and you might be converted to the better weisse made by the same company.

The beer pours a slightly "Chill Hazed golden amber color, considerate and light beige head, tonnes of lace to coat the glass. Nose has a citrus like crispness, earthy with a sweet grainy malt nose. Front is sweet, the top is matter of fact, the carbonation tolerable, and a pleasing hop spicy bite to finish it all off. Quite a good drinking beer always seems to refresh me after a long hard day.

A lush fountain of chewy orange, hop dust and Parma ham flavor. Floral and earthy. Fruity and dry. Bright and deep. Solid and airy. This is the point of reference for Hefeweizen. Bitter sweet spices decorate sunny liquid sunshine.

Cloudy golden beer with a touch of yellow. It had a sticky white head about 1/2 in thick. Wonderful wheat, banana, clove aromas.

The beer tasted not too sweet, like wheat, crackers, and alcohol.. A few seconds after the beer left my mouth I was thinking "starfruit". Maybe a little. Hops were there along with some astringency for balance. A little too carbonated, in my opinion.

Overall, not a good as the Hacker-Pschorr Weisse Dark.

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.

This is a superior product from a first class outfit. It boasts a good look and an even better aroma; some say banana others say fruity; realistically both. The taste is outstanding almost smoky. Definitely not an overly effervescent body so the beer itself is very palatable, very smooth. Candy for the taste buds. To not have this one as a regular guest at your better nights is, by virtue, not having a better night at all.

Pours with a towering white frothy head over (of course) yeastily cloudy light amber liquid. Nose is bubblegummy, with notes of banana, clove & yeast...very appetizing. Taste is fruity and light with more banana taste with some astringency being felt on the palate. Finishes lively and crisp..lip smacking good! A very well made Weissbier!

pours a amber-golden colour, with a thick and lasting head. The smell has a nice spicyness to it, as does the taste, which also includes some good estery touches. Feels nice going down and causes no trouble.
an excellent example of a hefe weisse, mounting a strong challenge to Schneider, my current favourite.

Deep orange-copper color with a solid white head that holds. There's a nice thick lace above the collar that gives the appearance of a mountainous horizon - but nothing above it. The foam across the surface thins but holds throughout the glass. The aroma has a dominant banana note with some grainy malt and clove. The body is light, giving a thinnish - but creamy - mouthfeel. The aroma offers far more banana that the flavor, which is more clovey. There's a light grainy maltiness up front, followed by a gentle tanginess, some clove, a light hop flavor, more spicy clove and a dry refreshing finish with a final swirl of light banana and then a residual hoppiness. This beer is unique in that it has more bitterness than most, with some light hop flavor, and an emphasis on spicy clove.

Traditional cloudy yellow color to light golden color. Fluffy white head, hung over the edge of the glass. A perfect looking hefe-weiss. Nice balanced clove, bananas, and citrus smells. Taste was also exceptional. Noticable bananas, clove, but not overpowering, slightly tangy middle, and super crisp clean finish.Really balanced tasty combination of yeasty wheat flavors. Medium bodied, slightly heavier than other hefe's. A very good hefe-weiss. For the mass produced big german breweries, this one is the best. Very refreshing and perfectly balanced.

Not really impressed with this brew. It was not what I expected in a wheat beer. Short finish in the taste and not an over powering beer overall. I just think it's an average weise.
On second tasting I up graded it to 4, across the board. Must have been a bad day first time!
