First try of this beer

Appearance:
Very clear for a hefe. Interesting even with a swirl and pour of the yeast, but there wasn't much to speak of in the bottle. Straw-gold color. Very pretty. About 1 finger of head at the beginning, falling down to a thin layer through the rest of the beer, leaving lots of lacing.

Smell:
Smells nice, a little yeasty, maybe some cloves. Fruity, banana action going on a little bit. I normally don't like any nana in my beer, but this one is doable for sure.

Taste:
Tastes great, I like it. Has a tang to it, carbo is just right to let the tanginess shine. Almost like an apple-banana cross. Can't pick out much else. The yeast is present->a little high, but not a turn-off for me.

Mouthfeel:
Great, but not quite like my experience with other hefes. It's less chewy than other hefes I've had. Not too thick, not too thin, and good carbonation.

Drinkability:
On a warm summer day, I could probably drink a lot of these.

Overall:
I like this beer. It is definitely worth trying, and you can make your own decision. I'll be grabbing this one whenever I want to get a few cheap beers to enjoy while hanging out. Take care of yourselves

It is a staple in any Bahnhof in the Nurnburg area. It can be found mixed with cola a banana flavorings but I digress.

Appearance- Hazy gold with lots of white bubbles just swimming around. It forms a thick white head that will later turn into a spread out but full lace.

Smell- It smells like it taste for the most part. Maybe a little more citrus in the aroma.

Taste- Yeasty and bean like. With clove and banana like tones with a slight hops bite.

Mouthfeel. Medium with a cloudy fuzziness to it.

Drinkability- Refreshing with little aftertaste.

Served on draft, this is different than Erdinger in so far as the yeast goes. Erdinger has live yeast in the keg/bottle where Tucher is "hazed" with filtered yeast. It is still a very good hefe weizen, just different than Erdinger.
Nice & citrusy nose & taste. Medium weight on the palett. VEry drinkable especially for someone new to Hefe beers.

First had: on tap at Brauhaus Schmitz (I think that's where it was)

A decent hefeweizen. On tap, served in a pils glass, hazy golden with a big fluff of white head that sank to a thin layer, some lacing, and lots of carbonation visible. Light wisps of yeast in the aroma, with touches of citrus and spice. Bready malts on the tongue, somewhat bitter, citrus zest and light peppery spice. Light mouthfeel, and a bit of a metallic aftertaste, but nothing unbearable. Decent and pretty easily drinkable.

A: Hazy, bright yellow; fluffy white head, great retention and lace.

S: Bready malt, hints of fruity esters.

T: Very light, more malt than anything. Bready, with a slight hint of unidentifiable fruity esters.

M: Light body is fairly highly carbonated (it's like sparking mineral water).

D: Easy drinker, but it doesn't bring me back for more.

The beer poured a cloudy gold with a full white head. The aroma was of banana and citrus. The taste was of malt and citrus with a light banana tinge up front. The feel was medium and wet with a drying finish. This was a good solid beer, the banana and citrus were a perfect compliment to the malt, without being overpowering. A very pleasant beer.

Pours a cloudy yellow color with a mighty head. The foam is colored white and has staying power. I smell bananas, tropical fruit, but the banana smell dominates. The taste is rich in bananas and kiwi with a rich and deep texture. The aftertaste is bready and a bit sweet. The flavor of the brew starts off strong and then dissipates rapidly. Overall this is a good beer with good drinkability that will pair very well with spicy or strong dishes.

I poured this brew into my tumbler at 50 degrees. She poured a cloudy pale color with nice fine white bubbles/ A pretty head and great lacing. The smell was yeasty fruity and smelled like fresh bread to me. The beer was crisp and clean but a bit on the yeasty side for me so I will not purchase this beer again.

Review from notes.

Had on tap, served in a weizen glass from the brewery.

Look: pale golden color with a bit of haze from some sediment. A thin white head sits atop but dissipates somewhat quickly, ending up as a thin layer of bubbles on top of the beer. A bit of lace is left behind.

Smell: oddly, smells nothing like a hefeweizen and smells more like a witbier. Orange and yeast notes come through but not a whole lot else.

Taste: again, nothing about this screams "hefeweizen" to me. No banana, no clove. A bit of orange, some wheat, fruitiness from the yeast, but nothing to say hefeweizen and is closer to a witbier than a hefeweizen.

Feel: thin, crisp carbonation, light and refreshing.

Drink: could be sessionable in that its easy drinking and it doesn't tire out your palate from complexity. I drank mine with no problem.

Overall, this was okay. I was recommended this by the server and given that it was the only thing at the bar that looked decent on tap (the second runner up with Smithwicks...), I figured I'd give it a go. It was decent but nothing that stands out. It loses points when compared against the style but its an okay wheat beer. I wouldn't bother. Cheers!

Poured out an opaque yellow-orange with a nice creamy head that was slow to drop. Great lacing all the way down.
Smell was citrusy, grapefruit specifically, hops and a hint of malt in the background.
Taste was hops first, then citrus.
Mouthfeel was smooth, good carbonation, not overwhelming in any regard, a well balanced beer.
Easy to drink, good flavor. Not the best wheat beer I've had, but a good one.
