Its like Blue Moon but for some reason the Tucher beats it by leaps and bounds.
I like the spicyness. Banana and citrus are there. Smooth and refreshing.
Clove and some spices. Really good Hefe its up there with Hacker-Pschorr Weisse, Franziskaner Hefe-Weissbier, Paulaner Hefe, Weihenstephan Hefe, Sierra Nevada Hefe. etc. Cheers!!

Very good German style Hefeweizen. Good head and very smooth tasting. Not too much clove. I will definitely get again.

Gold-ish orange color with a full white pillowy head and good carbonation throughout. Light classic banana-clove aroma and flavor. Medium bodied, smooth and creamy.

A solid Bavarian Hefe-weizen -- A definite buy !!

Poured into a large tapered Carlsberg glass at The Local Miami.

A- Pours a hazy medium golden color with a 1/2 inch head that retains a bit before dying down to an 1/8 inch head.

S- Staightforward yeasty wheat aroma with some mild orange peel and coriander.

T- Classic wheat beer flavor with lots of rich, milky yeast notes. Very quaffable with some tangy spice and a bit of zesty citrus. Barely any hop bitterness but what's there is complementary.

M- Creamy with a lighter body. Medium carbonation.

O- It just doesn't get much better than this. Sessionable, flavorful, balanced. Just about perfect.

Pours with a very good head. Excellent, light bronze color. Very soft on the palate, with citrus overtones. No bitterness present. Smooth enough to let you have a few. However, a noticeably missing in malt and hop, which leaves you wanted a little more character to it. Over all, right up there with a Konig or Hacker in this category.
Served with lemon

of all the wheatie,s i like this one the best.color is a nice golden with some yeast clouding it up a bit at the end of the pour,taste i get citrus from start to finish with a hint of sweetness but crisp and a little dry at the finish,a very drinkable beer for me.

One of my favorite beers. Poured from 500ml bottle into a tall Hefe glass, 1 1/2in off-white foam, cloudy yellowish-orange. Slight aromas of banana & citrus? Slight hop bitterness near end of finish, but a very drinkable brew! If an older bottle is opened, I have noticed a lack of banana aroma right away. Even past it's prime, this Hefeweizen beats a lot of other beers out of a tap!
