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.

Tucher Helles Hefe Weizen, 5,2% abv.
Look: A cloudy, hazy golden colour, with a 3 finger white head. Also some carbonation

Smell: A very strong, spicy aroma with some touch of citrus, banana and bread notes.

Taste and feel: Citrus and fruity taste along with some spicy and bread touch. Dry, mild carbonated feeling.

Overall, a very good standard hefeweizen. Cheers

L: Slightly hazy golden yellow and minimal lacing
S: dry hay and bread with stale grain finish
T: same as the smell with a bit of honey and clove
F: medium carbonation, good feel

Overall: I'm disappointed that Tucher puts out such a low-grade brew. They are becoming the Budweiser of Germany to me.

Picked several from a supermarket shelf on Andros Island, Greece, in Ahios Petros. My wife is a big Weiss beer lover and she loved it so much, that we went back and bought the lot! Perfect wheat beer!

This is top-drawer for the style.
It looks and smells about average, but its taste is subtler than the typical fruity.
And this one is very, very smooth in the mouth; goes down very easy and with ease ... and enjoyment.
But this when you see it.

Nice weizen from this Franconian brewery. All the right aromas and flavors we’ve come to expect from the style.Slight metallic tinge in the finish....
