Smells of sweet wheat, banana and spices. Taste is the same and the mouthfeel medium. A wonderful beer!

12/29/18 (Chicago): $6.63 16 oz draft pour into Weizen glass at Fischman Public House. Heavy voluminous white puffy head, leaves generous lacing. Nice lemon banana aroma, strong and pleasant. Light wheat taste, lemon, banana, very nice blend. Light crisp mouth feel, full body, excellent Hefeweize beer. Overall very good pour.

Bottle, best before 9.10.19 so probably two months old?

Standard hefeweizen look, beautiful sticky fine-bubbled foam. Nose is dominated by clove, not so much banana. Spicy notes in general. Taste follows suit with a nice fuller than average body and a bit yeasty aftertaste. Yeasty in the sense of slight sharp bitterness that lingers on the tongue. Soft carbonation for the style, or rather, probably the thickness plays down the carbonation. In sum, the benchmark for hefeweizen. Pure, balanced, very very drinkable. Many hefes are either too sweet or sharp to really want to drink too many in a row. This one is one that beckons beyons the first acquaintance.

This gets a perfect 5 because it deserves it. When you think Hefe, you think of this beer. It's iconic and perfectly delicious to boot. When found fresh, especially on draft, you won't find a better one!

Best beer on the planet by true masters of their craft. Hoping to take the wife soon and visit the actual brewery. Fingers crossed!

L4.5 Excellent head, nice cloud, deep golden.
S4.25 really wheaty
T4 really wheaty - with a slight sweetness
F3.75 smooth.
O4.25 from the world’s oldest brewery - they should be able to make a good beer. They can. Probably the best weissbier I’ve had from a bottle.

Hands down best hefeweizen you will ever drink. Have had draft and bottle both never disappoint. Been in business since 1040 they got it perfected!

Pours a pleasant murky-blonde with a prominent head. Tastes like banana, bubblegum, coriander, clove. Love the balance on this easily drinkable wheat beer.
