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...

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.

3.05/5  rDev -25.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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

3.05/5  rDev -25.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

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.

Ok second Hacker beer of the night.
Have to say its a rather average looking hefe, slighly hazy orange with a large pure white frothy head.
Smell is quite pleasant ..the usual..bananas, clovestec tec.
The after the good aroma I was expecting a nice tasting German hefe..but it was quite flat..the flavours are all there but they are muted..dissapointing.
Quite average on the palate.
Its drinkable but no were near as good as the Dunkle -weissen.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

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'.

Amazing head on this beer. explosive.I had to pour this into a twenty ounce glass and still had to dive in nose first to keep it from ending up all over the floor. After seeing that I was expecting a hell of a hefe, but all I got was an average one,at least for a German Import. What's my gripe? It's watery. and that was enough to bring this down at least a point for me. All of the flavors of the style are present,and I like the finish, but when you take that first sip, there's a little disappointment. Personally, I'll stick with Paulaner. Having said all this, and in the interest of fairness, if this was a beer from an American micro brewery I'd be heaping praise upon it, but when you're brewing beer in Munich, you better be able to keep up with the big boys.
The drinkability of this beer is good, and it would be real welcome after a hot day mowing the lawn, but at $9.00 a six pack you won't be sucking down too many of these in your lawn chair.

The first time , I bought this beer at a local liquor store it was horrible in Southern California. I should of look at beer date before I bought it. It was old beer. The second time I taste it on tap it taste like a world class beer. The third time it suck! I do not what to rate this beer. I give it a C plus. Weihenstephaner and Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse taste great on tap and in a battle.
Appreance: hazy pale orange a white head

Smell: Aroma is a typical wheat beer.

Taste: It has great depth with spices of clove and coriander with the sweet lemons. It is very smooth and balanced malts and mild hop influence without over doing it.

Mouthfeel : Light side to medium bodied with a good, smooth, creamy feel to it. It is Awesome!

Overall: World class beer! Try it on tap do not buy old bottle at local liquor store.

.5L in Milan poured into large weizen glass.

A: Hazy orange with a huge cotton candy head. Retention and lacing both good. Plethora of carbonation

S: Smells like a hefe and a ton of wheat comes through. Banana and spices prevail with the balance of citrus. Snappy to the back of the nose.

T: Even more banana and spices than in the smell and overbearing on the citrus end for me in the flavor. The aromas were better than the taste but heaviness of the bananas and coriander become somewhat annoying. Some hops would have made it nicer.

M: Fairly thick mouthfeel for the style and tingly from the wheat/sparkling.

D: High marks here but the chewiness and spices become a bit much. Definitely not my favorite of the style but still a solid beer.
