Pours a rich golden honey with a nice yeast cloudiness. It has a small great frothy head that lingers and leaves a nice lace in the glass. It smell great with a nice nutty fruity spice nose with a nice aroma of fine malts. It tastes even better than it smells and has a nice blend of malts that gives it its richness of flavors. It has a full mouth with a great lingering nutty malt tone. A truly great weizen that I will be drinking more of,

This one I also got from the Stoertebeker giftpack, it's the first of the two Weizen-style beers in there, the other one being the "Roggen-Weizen".

A- Great, ambery ("Bernstein" means amber in German), yellow, hazy goodness. Just the way a Weizen has to look.
Would have given 5.0 if the head had stuck around a little longer and had been a little foamier.

S- Banana, clove, diggin it.

T- Familiar but yet different :D
It's definetely Weizen-like with it's banana and clove taste and the light orangieness, but there is a slight bitterness in the aftertaste I really like.
5.0 if the flavor was a little stronger.

M- Short aftertaste, but light and easy-going.

D- Just wow. I could drink a sixpack of these and wouldn't bother.

Yeah, so overall a really, really good Weizen, doesn't quite come close to Weihenstephaner and some of those Uberbiers, but it's most certainly above your average wheat.

Bought in a 6 pack with 5 other different Störtebeker beers. Paid about $1 for the beer.

A: A very bright and saturated yellow with just a hint of orange. Quite carbonated.

S: Incredibly sweet. It smells like one of those orange cream ice cream bars. A cross between that and raw dough for sweet bread. Yes, and bubble gum too.

T: One of the sweeter Hefeweizens I've had. Quite pleasant. Medium bodied, pleasant sweet after taste.

M: Fine, nothing special

D: Probably too sweet for a lot of people, but I'm a fan.

Picked this up in a six pack at my local grocery, looked interesting. Read the history behind the name of the brewery, pretty interesting stuff.
Pours out a medium brown tangerine tinted tone, pretty nice head, nice creamy thickness. Poured into a proper Weizen glass, rises out of the top, and creates that lovely little "crater effect" in the middle. Good carbonation, pretty active actually.When yeast is decanted, a whole new level of cloudiness is added, really a nice looking Weizen.
Smells heavy in sour applewood, banana, cherry, clove, musty grain, bit of caramel, clove, sharp pepperiness, orange, a suprising amount of bubble gum is found here also. Interesting, sweet, yet also nicely sharp and complex. Hopefully the flavor can hold up.
Flavor is tart, lightly sour, and brightly carbonated. Orange, tangerine, banana, cherry, bubble gum, black pepper, clove, hint of coriander, sichuan pepper. There is a nice buttery biscuit not found in the aroma, and beer as it warms that provides a nice base for the other flavors to build on. The finish is spiked by a nice pepperiness that cuts through the inital sweet impression quite perfectly. The carbonation is a bit higher than other examples of Weizen I have tried, and I like it.
Mouthfeel is medium, yet lively, active, and beckons for another sip. The sweetness never gets in the way, due to the superb finish.
Reading other reviews, I was a bit dissapointed I had bought the six-pack, as others described it as being rather lackluster-while its not quite on the level of Weihenstephan, Schneider Weisse, or Andechser Weizen, it is very good and especially so since not actually brewed in Bavaria like most stellar Weizen beers. Very good for my taste, and I will try the Pilsner.

First of the mixed six pack and so far pretty impressed.

Pours the typical golden orange with a nice 3 inch head and solid retention.

Nose is a bit on the mild side; banana, clove, orange...obviously.

Incredibly crisp (this is a very prominent characteristic of this beer) notes of citrus and banana.

Overall; simple and solid, just a good hefe should be...notes are a bit mild but overall a pretty nice offering.

Looking forward to the rest of the pack!

Pours amber cloudy beer with excellent golden white head. Classic aroma of banana, lollipops and clove. Taste is not so full, but not bad, typical for weizen, less fruity, more wheat. Medium body, soft carbonation. Worthy brew from good german producer.

A: Pours very cloudy light amber-colored. Light ariy but still creamy very large head dissipates slowly leaving rich lacings.

S: Ripe bananas - wheat. Sweet malts, lots of spices and yeast. Citric notes.

T: A lot drier than the smell. Still ripe bananas, only not that ripe. Wheat, yeast, spices and citric notes. Some dark dried fruits!?

M: Body is light and carbonation rich, a bit offensive. Aftertaste is short.

D: A bit drier than other Hefeweizens I've had. Nice but not great.

Beer 0,5 liter bottle brought from a recent trip to Germany.
Big creamy head on this, a cloudy orange golden beer, good carbonation on this sample.
Smell and taste are quite malty. It has a little bit of banana, and defenately a lot of aroma/taste of cloves,.
Overal: a beer with some body. Smooth and well drinkable.
