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.

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...

Pours out a cloudy tangerine with a somewhat rocky, yet not very thick, head. The nose is of light phenols with an overall grainy presence. Not very interesting. Overall, too subdued. The flavor is mostly malty with subtle wheat, grain, and phenolic flavors. Thins out an becomes kind of watery. Mouthfeel is quite thin with not enough carbonation. Aside from the way it looks, this is pretty much your average hefe. Not bad, but not great. This pales in comparison to their dunkelweizen.

Appearance: Cloudy golden yellow with a medium head and some lacing left on the glass afterwards.

Smell: Malt and grain.

Taste: Malt with some clove spice flavor but not as pronounced as with other Hefeweizens. Somewhat dry and bitter tasting and lacked the subtle malt sweetness I like in other Hefeweizens.

Drinkability: This was an average Hefeweizen. Definately drinkable but not one of the best out there.

poured out a very thick foamy head and a cloudy lemon-ish orange color with darker hues swirling through out. took a while for the foaminess to settle down. Aroma was musty, fruity and I hate to say but smelled a bit like a wet dog. It had an slight apple and sour note and finished with a bready musty end. mouth feel was soft and chunky. It was an ok beer, but I felt one would do me just fine.

cheers

Poured a 500-ml bottle into a pub glass.

Appearance - hazy orange colour with notable carbonation and good head. Big bubbles, and lingering lace.

Smell - balanced aromas of citrus, barley, caramel and hops. Hints of wood and nutmeg.

Taste - lots of different complex flavours including spicy and piney hops right at the beginning. As this subsides there is a major grainy flavour which continues right through the swallow and lingers with citrus-orange notes.

Mouthfeel - each sip is definitely an interesting effect, carbonation is substantial.

Drinkability - I'd say that the complex flavours are appreciable at first but I find the beer too active to have more than one.

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.

Poured a cloudy gold. Some nice lace but the head disipated quickly. Smelled very nice with some floral and spicy notes but these were lost to the breadyness when actually tasted. I've had much better wheat beers than this but I would probably drink it again.

Reviewed 6/27/2006 (500mL bottle):

Pours a humongous head, white, somewhat lasting, creamy looking. Yellow-orangish color, very fizzy looking. Very flowery aroma, reminiscent of a triple. Slight flowery taste. Slightly watery taste. Very light taste.

Hay orange in color, with a very beautiful white fluffy head.
The smell is strong, with sharp notes of yeast, cloves, banana.
Same for the taste, strong. Full taste, with a very strong yeastiness, with cloves.
A very in-style weizen, with all the standard notes. Very strong.
Maybe a bit less drinkability for that.

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 pours coppery greenish with nice white fluffy head.

Smell is a bit faint. Bread and beer.

Taste is, to me, bland. As it should be, but nothing really sets it aside from an American macro. Maybe some malt and yeast comes through the watery taste.

Mouthfeel is good, though. Somewhat creamy.

Finish is very clean. just like water. Too much like water.

Drinkable? It would be easy to consume a hundred of these things.

Perhaps a good crossover beer, or hot day beer when you just dont feel like having water. I personally would prefer something a little more robust.

My local store had this on sale at $8.99 for a 12 pack. This pours thick with a nice head. Smell is sweet like cotton candy. Taste is rich and creamy, not too sweet. Mouthfeel is smooth. Finishes very clean for a weisse beer. I like this and will drink it again, although it's not a great session beer.

Hazy golden amber with a good white head. Good lacing.
Lots of banana and vague ripe fruit in the nose.
Taste features more bready malts but still has a solid banana note, along with a bit of clove.
Rather high carbonation, but this seems appropriate for this brew. Near medium body. Crisp.

O: a solid German Weiss, but not a favored style.

A- Translucent mango colour with a very foamy head. Reminded me of desert topping.

S- Sweet malts, clove and banana, slight wheat and skunk.

T- Banana, cloves, and malt, and then a bunch more cloves.

M- Very creamy and smooth. Only felt slightly carbonated.

D- An alright beer. I think they emphasized the cloves far too much, and I think it's a big flaw. Aside from that it has some good characteristics. Won't be buying it again though.
