Look: Big fluffy light tan head above a hazy light yellow/orange beer
Smell: Big banana, light clove and bread
Taste: Very mildly sweet with some banana, light clove and possibly some other spices, and light malt flavor, slight ciders finish.
Feel: Tastes a little thin for a Hefeweizen, but is very drinkable

Poured to a Erdinger glass.

A: The body is yellow-ish to orange but it's too crystalline for a Hefe. It has clear body, nothing hazy, shows tons of carbonation. Head has no retention.
S: The aroma has no banana but has a bit tons of clove. There's also a bit of sweetness but this has some clear deviation from the style.
T: It has a sweet begining, with the clove having a regular profile. In the end, the wheat malt helps this beer to have some drinkability.
M: Body is medium to medium low. Carbonation is bit harsh. No bitterness.
O: This beer is not a good option when looking for a Hefe. Krystalweizen appears to be a better classification of this beer. Would not drink again.

Aroma is wheat, light bananas and funky/spicy cloves. The flavor is wheat, light citrus, mild fruit sweetness, cloves and a slightly spicy/tart finish.

Had this on a recent trip as it was served on the Viking Tour of the Rhine. The weather was hot and this beer just hit the spot. They had it on draft and in bottles and I enjoyed both. It pours with a significant had with lots of residual lacing, quite hazy, and a light amber color. If I can find it here I'll be buying it again.

This was a great beer. I bought this at a Walmart in China. It has a hazy, almost golden color with a slight head. It has a citrus/wheat mix taste, not too strong but certainly not weak. It was smooth and enjoyable. I'll pick this one up again.

Serving Type: 500 mL Bottle

A- Pours a Hazy Copper colour topped by a fairly lacklustre, although pillowy 1/2 finger head.

S- Classic banana Hefe smell, along with a hint of wheat malt and zesty orange peel.

T- Less of the Banana and more orange peel, bubblegum. Noticeable taste of wheat malt.

M- Medium body and moderate carbonation.

O- A good example of a German Hefe that stays true to the traditional stylistic guidelines.

So long since I’ve had a real weizen. Nice pillowy head, grain aroma, slightly sweet, taste is light on the normal banana and bubblegum, but still fairly chewy. Fine sediment added via the bottle swirl, makes for a slightly cloudy beer. Good, but not the best.
