Interesting take on the style by one of the oldest breweries. Good looking Hefe with impressive head and great lacing. The nose is deep on the spicy side, on top of white bread. Taste of wheat malts, lemon, banana and yeast is delicious. Very smooth and refreshing in the mouth with a velvety finish. Hops are present and delicately balance the delicious cascade of wheat and fruity notes. A Hefe on its own, with lots of character. Dynamic, playful and well balanced.

Last update a year later in 2016 was very fresh and Weltenburger gave a run to Hofbrau Weisse for its money in the same session. The fruity sweet malts plus all the yeast and spices above was beautiful, plus the hints of marihuana in the nose. Underrated!

Pours a golden color with slight haze. Aroma of wheat laden clove, citrus and slight bubblegum. Flavor has banana, clove, pungent hop, very euro tasting. There is a slight mineral, well water aspect showing a lot of iron or something in the hard water. Good solid hefe flavors though and drinks pretty easily. The Asam Bock made by this brewery is a far more heartier, characterful beer.

P- Thanks to my buddy ray for this brew

A- pale yellow green in color with a huge 4 finger head. quite cloudy and hazy. gorgeous frothy mountain peak lacing on my 22 oz mug.

S- coriander and orange peel with hints of wheat. hints of honey come through as well.

F- coriander and honey come through dominantly in this beer. the orange peel rounds it out.

M- a medium bodied wheat that feels foamy in the mouth. wheaty and honey like as well as it goes down gullet.

O- definitely an interesting hefe beer. The coriander and honey don't complement each other as well as I would hope but still decent.

Sampled this afternoon while watching football on 12/28/14. Comes in a 500ml (16.9 ounce) single bottle for around $4.00. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a handled-glass stein.

Pours a slight hazy golden-honey in color with a good 1-finger foamy white head that last a good bit before settling down to around 3mm or so. Some sediment is seen in the bottom of the bottle after the pour. A good amount of lacing is seen when sipped, like a good German beer does. The aroma is mostly of wheat with a touch of honey. Bit more going on with the taste as there is a hint of orange and very light spice(?) in the mix as well. Goes down easy with no harsh or bitter aftertaste. A good Hefe/Wheat brew. Medium-bodied with perfect carbonation. Overall, a tasty brew!

This pours a cloudy, golden yellow color with a thick, foamy head. The aroma is full of wheat, coriander, and yeast. The flavor is full and delicious with orange and wheat tones. The texture is smooth and filling for a lighter wheat beer. This has to be one of the best beers for its style.
