Bright, effervescent carbonation is the first thing you notice when pouring this beer. It fizzes and the bubbles lift the liquid into the air in little bursts like champagne. The color is golden, and nearly clear, not cloudy like most wheats. The smell is fresh and clean: grain, a little spice, light citrus, salt/ocean air. The flavor is among the most crisp and refreshing beers you'll ever have. The body is light, and flavor is medium - not too light and not too heavy. Wheat is there, (obviously) and nice spiciness, no off flavors at all and that great carbonation gives it a sublime mouthfeel. Drinkability is fantastic. This is an excellent summer session beer. It goes down smoother than 90% of the beers I've ever tried.

Excellent hefeweissbier! All the characteristics you expect from a good hefeweiss. Pallid hazy yellow. Bang-Pow fruity esters dancing on your tongue. Clean dry tart in the finish with the slightest hint of bittering hops. Quality start to finish, one of the best I've had.

This brew pours a nice hazy gold into my Tucher weizen glass, perfect big fizzy white head forms. Aroma is thick with spicy lemon pepper and sort of a sprite-like mime aroma, very citrusy, but not as much banana as usual for these German hefes. Taste is smooth, lemony, a lot more forceful than some others from the style, a bit tart with lots of clove.

A different take on the style, but still a very strong beer though not quite up to par with Weihenstephaner.

BRight, bold orange cloudy body with more than a finger of head that lasts forever and lots of sheeted lacing.

The yeast shines in the aroma with a big hit of spiced oranges and just a little bit of pepper.

The taste is very sweet, once again, lots of citrus dominating the palate but it's very pleasant.

Mouthfeel is a tad on the thin side, but that's really the only bad thing I could say about this beer. Very slightly drying at the end.

An excellent beer, now that I found it I'll be stocking up!

A: Cloudy pale color coupled with a large white head.

S: Sweet fruits, like banana, are present, as well as distnictive citrus smell. Very pleasant smell all and all.

T: The taste has some malts, not much, as one would expect from a Hefeweizen. A hint of sweetness, and a very distinctive wheat flavor makes this beer one of the best Hefewaizens I have enjoyed, ever!

M: Mouthfeel is very good. Just the right amount of carbonation to produce nice medium-sized bubbles. A fine blend of aromas and flavors are brought together in this Bavarian delight.

O: A good exapmle of a true Bavarian-style Hefewaizen. If you like wheat beer, it doesn't get much better than this.

Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly murky orange yellow color with a large white head. The aroma is wheat, spice and citrus. The taste is mildly citrus with a very nice wheat flavor.

Cloudy, yellow gold with a good head that holds up fairly well. The aroma is mainly of clove and fruit above a sweetmalt and limited banana. The body is thin, but zesty, and creamy as it warms. The flavor is of a fruity malt with clove and a very light banana. The finish is refreshing with a touch of hop bitterness. Very well balanced. Not exactly a stand-out weizen for any particular reason, but quite flawless and seductive nonetheless. An excellent choice.

Big, bold and beautiful, Tucher Helles Hefe Weizen presents three fat fingers of white froth on a cloudy lemon yellow body, really impressive. The smell gives off nice fruit and lots of malt, with some hops following up well. The taste is excellent. It's more hopped than the nose indicates, the fruit--lemon, orange peel--is solid, and it's very smooth and refreshing. A bit more carbonation would only enhance an already good mouthfeel. Nonetheless, this is one of the easiest beers to drink I've ever had, smooth and delicious.

Grab and enjoy.

Appearance: Hazy golden yellow with a thick, pillowy white head that sticks around.

Smell: Slight fruitiness with some malts and faint herbal hoppiness.

Taste: Slightly sweet and nice and malty. Some faint fruit and pepper crispness. Also some hop bitterness that rounds things out nicely, ending each sip with a slight bready and hoppy flavour.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, refreshing with a pretty lively carbontion. Medium bodied.

Impressions: Excellent, definitely a must try for any wheat beer lover. Or any beer lover for that matter.

Beautiful white beer color with a slight cloudy look. Rich white head. Wheaty/yeasty smell with hints of vanilla. Slides through your mouth with silky feel. Wow very good, not as sweet as paulaner and has more body, more balence. I could drink this all night.
