Pour a rather light pale yellow, incredibly carbonated and produces a wonderful head that sticks around and laces well.

Odd aroma of clove and a hint of cooked corn, some banana-like esters and a faint aroma of malt.

Flavor of banana, wheat malt and again a very delicate vegetal caracter, not repulsive but neither attractive. It's ok but there are far better Hefeweizens... maybe my bottle was not so fresh.

I've drank this beer many times in southern Germany.

Pours a hazy gold color with a giant head and lots of retention. Smell is nice - wheat and fruit with some clove spiciness. Flavor is similar - very refreshing. I don't drink a lot of this style, but this was a good example of what I like in a Weizen.

Catch-up rating. Light pale gold, active carbonation and thick, creamy head that sticks around and laces well.Aroma of clove, some banana-like esters and a faint aroma of malt. Flavor of banana, wheat malt. Decent but better Bavarian weizens to be had.

5.5%.
Pours hazy golden, big fluffy head that lasts a long time.
Mild smell of sweet bananas, wheat, fruitiness, some clove and vanilla.
Sweet taste of white bread, wheaty malts with some fruitiness (lower banana than expected, a touch of apple acidity and orange juice). Zesty, with a small sourness. Nicely spiced, clove, hint of vanilla, faint honey. Low hops, mild bitterness.
Smooth creamy body, even better if the medium carbonation would have been a bit lower. Not too heavy.
A nice weizen, a nudge higher than the usual run-of-the-mills.
