Not too tooty-fruity as others of this type, rather more balanced. Decent aroma. Light yellow cloudy colour. Tasty citrus is drinkable. Malt nice with food. Not crazy on some of the spices as pepper. In your face carbinations means an uneasy mouthfeel for some.

Best before 9/2012.

Pours a murky honey orange with a 1 inch foamy orange-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, yeast, clove, and banana aromas. Taste is of wheat, yeast, and banana with a clove spice flavor that lingers on the finish. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good hefeweizen that is very refreshing and easy to drink.

one of the classic wheat beers of the world this one is. it pours a nice bright almost orange shade of gold, cloudy, with a two inch white head that slowly fades. the nose is clove and banana in subtle amounts, malted wheat, and that characteristic hefe yeast. there is a lot of flavor in this, fruity and bready and summery, and lots of body for the style, which I like a lot. still plenty drinkable though, and a 6 pack seems to be about the right dose of this stuff. bubbly with some spice on the finish, very satisfying, and supremely refreshing when its cold. priced fairly and available everywhere, this is a quality product. one of my favorite regular imports.

This brew poured out as a hazy looking golden orange color with some yellow highlights. The head was fluffy and white and it left a little bit of lacing on the on the glass. The smell of the beer is soft with some nice light floral citrus aromas coming off of it. The taste of the beer is subtly sweet with it's wheat character blended with some banana like flavors and other minor citrus flavors. The mouthfeel was smooth also, very easy to drink. Overall this brew is quite good, I tend to enjoy these more in the summer time, but you can honestly have this anytime and be pleased.

A: It poured cloudy dark yellow into a weizen glass with a perfect head. A moderate level of carbonation is visible from the rising bubbles. There is a good amount of head retention.
S: There's a light to moderate aroma of yeast and bubble gum in the nose, along with some hints of banana and clove. The aroma becomes a little stronger as the beer warms up.
T: There are lots of bready flavors of malt and yeast along with notes of banana and cloves in the taste.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and a bit grainy. You can definitely taste the "cloudiness."
D: The beer is very refreshing and quite sessionable.

Pretty standard stuff. A deep straw-yellow color with a dense haze and equally dense head formation with great retention... a very Hefe-like appearance. Solid aromas of half-bananna, half-clove, and decorated with a light peppery, bubble-gum, and lemon zest. Flavors exhibit the same attributes as those found in the nose, but seem lesser in intesity than expected. The lemon and pepper notes increase into the finish, lessening the influence of other esters and phenols. Creamy texture that wavers quickly and allowing for great drinkability. Finishes very clean with a lemony, hop / grassy bite. Sure it's a fair beer, but somehow I expected more from one of the greater German brewing institutions.

330ml bottle, from the splendiferous and yet rather limited in its style choices local Indian restaurant chain's beer fridge.

This beer pours a pretty cloudy, medium tarnished golden amber hue, with three fingers of puffy, frothy, and moderately foamy off-white head, which leaves an irregular ring of streaky lace around the glass as it slowly recedes.

It smells of semi-sweet grainy wheat, banana chips, orange peel, clove, and softly edgy and musty yeast. The taste is more sweet, and somewhat sharp wheat malt, banana cream pie, hollow juicy citrus, neutered clove, and mildly astringent yeast.

The carbonation is moderate, with a fine prickliness, the body a solid medium weight for the style, and quite smooth overall, a playful creaminess sidling up as we merrily plod along. It finishes on the increasingly dry side, with a lingering wheat graininess, and some residual spice and yeast.

I suppose that I've waited too long to try the world beaters for this particular style - my previous lack of enthusiasm for hefeweizens is now fading quickly. A pleasant and enjoyable beer to accompany the savoury cornucopia that is a workday lunchtime Indian buffet.

Served on draught into a 33cl Paulaner glass in France. Price was 3.50 euro.

A: Pours a two finger head of soft delicate cream, good thickness, and great retention. Colour is a hazy orange.

Sm: Orange and lemon peel. A mild strength aroma.

T: Orange and lemon peel ester hops with a curtailing nasty finish. Muted and bland for the style. Simple and poorly built, but balanced.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Far too wet. Not really complementary of the flavours.

Dr: Easy to drink, but lacking flavour. A high price by French standards.

Only reviewing under this entry because my beer is identical to the name and picture. This is the same as "Naturtrüb" no doubt.

Benchmark Hefeweizen. One of the first "better beers" that got me into the whole world of craft beer. It pours a uniquely opaque orange, with a billowing head. Stray bits of lacing are left behind.

Sweet bready, peanut butter aroma. Dusty wheat too.

Flavors of banana, clove, the usual, but in perfect mellow harmony. Some light citrus and fruit on the back end. Very smooth feel to it, although over time the sweetness tends to slow me down.

Cloudy yellowish brew with a reasonable head. Very complex mix of spice with a fresh taste of wheat. Very refreshing taste overall with a bit of sourness in the aftertaste. Overall a good example of the style without being the best of the category. I would still like to try this one on tap...

Had on tap at Cherry Hill Brasserie in Columbia, MO.

Nice two finger head, golden yellow color. It smelled of wheat and hops. The taste was much the same as the smell. The wheat taste was very prevalent. The mouthfeel was slightly grainy, but not bad. It was certainly very drinkable, but I was nearly done with my meal so I was a little too full of steak to have more.
