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.

Served from tap into Hefe glass. Poured hazy yellow-orange with a two finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, spice, banana, and clove. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, clove, spice, and subtle banana. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. This one was really quite refreshing for the weather we are currently having here in the southeast. The banana aspect here really made it fairly enjoyable along with the overall mouthfeel. A really well done representation of the style.

A - Pours a hazy amber with a three finger white head. Very good retention and lacing.

S - Clove, banana, grainy malt.

T - Zesty citrus, banana, spicy, must, biscuit, lemon, floral notes.

M - Zesty, light citrus zing on the tongue, slight oily finish.

O - Exemplary of the style. One of the best hefeweizens available. I like this slightly better than Weihenstephaner.

This has a murky caramel color -- a classic characteristic of hefeweizen. Awesome smell with a slight bitterness and a hint of banana goodness. Full bodied and flavor. The bitterness present in smell is not present in the taste. Not carbonated water like some other brews. Really easy to drink, a definitely hefeweizen for the summer. Finishes more pronounced than it starts.
