It looks like and smells like a Hefeweizen but once you drink it you will realize that this German beer taste water down and taste more like a radler with water as the lemonade. With that said it is ok to drink on hot day when you are not looking for a good beer

Appearance: Very pale yellow, slightly hazy. Not cloudy, as the style should be. I coaxed a finger of head, but I didn't have the power to persuade it to stay around. It was gone in less than 30 seconds, leaving a pathetic most-of-a-ring of bubbles. So unlike what I thought a hefeweisbier should be.

Smell: There is a smell. Faint, but it is there. Very slight odor of cloves and less of bananas. Disappointing.

Taste: Well, it does remind me of a hefeweisbier. It reminds me that I would like to drink one tonight. A bit of malty sweetness, and a hint of cloves, but no banana esters. At least the taste is closer to style than the smell or the appearance were.

Mouthfeel: Lots of carbonation. Too much carbonation. Light in body, this beer is like a super-gassed, watered-down version of a wheat beer.

Overall: What a disappointment. I do like good weizenbiers, but this is not one. On the other hand, there is not anything flat-out wrong with this beer as a beverage; it is quite drinkable, maybe even refreshing. But judging to the style, this one is not even close. Would I have it again? Yes, but I would never drink it if I actually wanted a weizenbier.

This was a decent beer - I'll say that first. I get this one in China every once in a while as it's available as an import beer in some places. I do enjoy it, but it's not incredibly smooth. The aftertaste also leaves something to be desired. I would say that the wheat-beer flavor is decent and the appearance in a glass is great. Unfortunately, I'll just have to go with decent on this rating as opposed to good or great.

Brown 500ml bottle, best before 12/2011, poured into a Franziskaner Weissbier glass 07/2011.

Looked almost like a crystal Weiss it was so clear, only a very slight haziness in the golden yellow body. On top, a mountain of snowy white foam.

Disappointing aroma, no vanilla, banana, yeasts or anything else to be honest. Hints of grains maybe, but not at all what I expect from a Hefeweizen.

Fizzy water taste, with a minor metalic feel as the mouth dries: this is a very poor beer by any standards.

I hate throwing anything away, but this nearly went down the sink. I managed to drink it however by eating a Pork Pie, Pickles, Cheese, Bread and a small packet of crisps!

500ml bottle. Weizen glass.Pale gold color, chill haze appearance. White froth creates a close, foamy & rocky crown that remains as a thick, sticky & lasting layer on top. Aromas profile displays clove, bread, honey, ripe banana, slight banana peel rounded by very subtle vanilla on the back. Crispy, bready & biscuit notes at first sip are followed by floral bitterness. Medium body. Moderate but lively carbonation. Dense texture & gentle sparkling sensation. Sweet maltiness, subtle citric & spicy touch linger into a sweet finish touched by acidic/bitter notes. Banana hues on the aftertaste. Refreshes & quenchs thirst.

I bought this can of Kaiserdom from FreshMart. It was produced September of 2010 and the label says it's good until March of 2012, if the world doesn't end by then.

Pouring into my pint glass, the colour is a perfectly clear golden yellow, which then slowly transforms into the hazier pale yellow with the addition of the sediment at the bottom of the can. There is some head, but not too much.

There is very little smell on this one. You can just barely make out that wheaty aroma that's usual for this type of beer if you stuff your face right into the glass and snort like Al Pacino in Scarface.

For some reason this is a rather carbonated beer, personally I'm used to wheat beers being less tasting of soda and more tasting of ...not soda. As I've mentioned in my other reviews, I'm not a fan of too much carbonation, especially in beer types that don't usually have it.

The flavour really tastes like a watered down wheat beer. Perhaps this beer is the mutant offspring of some North American macro pilseners and German hefeweissen after one night stand. Who knows.

The bottom line is, it's not very good compared to other hefeweissen, and only mediocre in the grand scheme of things. I probably won't be buying it again.

At 4.7 abv this is one of the "easiest" beers I've ever had. The alcohol taste of this beer does not overwhelm even after having 10 or 11. There is a definite presence of citrus, possibly banana that tames the beer to an almost a watered down effect that does not actually diminish the beer. Super cheap, bought at a grocer while visiting in Italy and we went back for more. Easily tops the cheaper international beers in my opinion. Poured and maintained a very cloudy yellow, and the foam had a decent life span for such a cheap beer.

I got a liter sized can at a Walmart in Beijing. The can looked like it had been through quite an adventure to get there. The first pour produced an inch and a half of white head. The beer itself has the color of peach nectar, but none of the viscosity. Sort of cloudy, pinkish, pretty odd for beer.

The aroma does not have much complexity to it. Pretty much just banana. The taste is fruity, like the smell.

Not really what I'd think of as a hefeweizen. Not a lot of yeasty or bready flavors here. Drinkable though.

Pours hazy bright yellow with thick white head, downsliding lacing. Aroma is mostly clove with fruity banana, wheat.

Taste is muted and watery sweetish wheat, some hints of yeast. Mouthfeel is light with almost no carbonation.

Overall, a disappointing beer, I would not buy it again.

1 litre can from a Tesco in Koh Samui, Thailand.

4.70% ABV.

Banana esters mingle with wheat and subdued clove in this by-the-numbers hefeweizen. Shallow and simple, though not imbalanced (even if the banana does come on a bit strong, and is overt to the point that subtlety is out the window from first sip).

Overcarbonated. Smooth, wet, medium-bodied. Okay, it's a bit metallic, unfortunately.

Not a bad hefeweizen per se, but one does expect better from a Franconian brewery. Not a brew I'm eager to buy again, but it's passable within its style. Certainly drinkable, though not to the extent you'd hope for in a beer sold by the litre.

Low C+ (3.03) / ABOVE AVERAGE
