This brew pours a large head of fine to large off-white bubbles that leave very little lacing. It has a carbonated cloudy light brown body. I smell a little citrous in the aroma. The tase is citrousy too with notes of banana, spice and clove. I'll eave it at that.

I did not find anything unique about this German Wheat. It poured a white head with fine-small bubbles. The body was cloudy and the color reminded me of cider. It had an aroma of clove to it and there was no lacing on the sides of my glass at all. There was carbonation observed with this brew. Nothing really stood this particular German Wheat apart from others that I have rated.

Huge, blossoming white head--imagine an albino mushroom cloud!--stands over a dark orange brew. Intensely aromatic from far-off: principally citrus, flowers and honey. Perfectly fits the Bavarian wheat style as I understand it, but where does the "winter" part come in? The brewery specializes in wheats, or should I say "weisbier specialitaten", as it says on the label, but no further information is given about this "winter wheat" business, or what the heck a "Schneewalter" is.
Thirst-quenching, delicious, substantial, and sweet. Quite good, but I can't find what ought to set it apart from other Bavarian wheats.

Pours out a thickly hazed golden-orange. Turns muddy brown-peach with the yeast pour. Gigantic, solid off-white head. Consistancy and appearance of cotton candy. Retains and laces as well as any.
Weak aroma of clove, malted wheat and musty yeast.
Starts into the mouth with some sour citric notes. Spice pops in next. Lemon pepper conparisons. Cloves contines to linger, as does some sourness. Finishes weak and lazy, with subtle lingering spice and lemon. Just sort of fades away. Never makes a statement.
There is nothing to this one, tastewise.
On the thick side for a hefeweizen. Just doesn't have much to go with it.
Great looking, but lacking elsewhere.
I get the feeling this is trying to be a dunkleweiss (hence the "winter wheat", in that case, it is even worse)

Classic, thick, dense and mountainous hefeweizen ivory - white head. Cloudy, light orange in hue w/ several yeast aggregates dancing amongst copious bubbling. Citrusy notes & light wheat tartness upfront w. mellow clove esters while a pleasant coriander spice is perceptible as well. Lightly sweet w/ distinct lemony & mild citrus - rind flavors. Yeast esters are quite subdued w/ light clove in the background. Fairly light bodied, but the mouthfeel is typically smooth and agreeable for a hefeweizen. Finishes clean, w/ a light mustiness and with a lingering coriander flavor. Although lacking some of the complexities of other Hefeweizens, this is quite a tasty and refreshing brew. Flavorwise, it is akin to a Belgian Wit / German Hefeweizen hybrid. I would have no problem drinking several of these.
