Strong wheaty, yeasty aroma with hints of lemon. Huge, white, creamy, rocky head; fully lasting. Very cloudy, almost a dark yellow. Good lace. Wheaty flavor, but not overbearingly so. Lightly fruity with a bit more bitterness than a typical hefe. Pretty good stuff that is regularly quaffed in Germany.

The beer pours with a very rich thick white head. The liquid is slightly cloudy and dark yellow. Exceptional in all aspects.

The aroma has slight cloves but no banana aroma. I could not detect any hops.

The flavor has bananas and light cloves. With every mouthful, the banana flavor increases and improves. The wheat flavor is present. There is a tartness that is not from hops and the carbonation plays with the tongue.

The mouthfeel is creamy and full of carbonation.

I LOVE hefeweizen and find this one of the finest I have had since coming back from Germany last May. I would recommend this beer to anyone looking for a great wheat beer.

The orange labeled Hefeweizen has a yellowish orange cloudy color. The nice and creamy off-white head has pretty good staying power with a little cream at the bottom of the glass and produces a maze of lace from the rim to the base. The back label shows to pour most and then swirl the bottle to pull the sludge off of the bottom and then finish your pour. I tried it without the swirl and with the yeast mix and did not notice much of a difference. A soft fragrance of spice and citrus builds the anticipation for the fruit/spice flavor that goes down smooth with a touch of bitterness towards the end. I found this German Bier to be very drinkable and tasty. One with which I will build a lasting relationship.

0.5l (in Berlin) ... a cloudy golden/yellow beer, crowned with a creamy, thick ringed lace. Notes of clove, light grain and yeast in the aroma.

Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Semi-sweet malt character with a mineral/steely backbone. Lemon/lime hop bitterness. Nutty suggestions, with a light rounding banana flavour.

A refreshing weizen, quite easily consumed, and enjoyed.

Cloudy golden colour, good head, lovely aroma of citrus and spices, refreshing light and clean citrussy flavour. Pleasant aftertaste. A good hefe, recommended for everyone who loves this style.

A middle of the road German wheat, which is not a bad thing at all, light, sweetish, fruity (banana), bubblegummy, but not overly so of any of these, very refreshing aswell, not overly interesting, but highly drinkable.
