From a 500ml bottle. Cloudy golden color with minimal head. Faint wheat smell. Medium feel, a little low on carbonation. Light wheat flavors with some banana and lemon on the finish. Kind of muted flavors.

500ml brown bottle. Label has 5.1% ABV. Label has stamping of '07000N2'.
Clear, straw colored body. Brief white head, which disappears. No lacing.
Aroma of lemon and faint wheat malt.
Taste of wheat malt, banana, and cloves. Faint lemon flavor. Overall, rather weak flavor profile.
Medium mouth feel. Very good carbonation. Dry finish.
Not much for a flavor driven Hefe but does quench the thirst. There are many better HefeWeizen beers out there.

Aroma: wheat, banana, some yeast

Body/Overall: light to medium body, easy drinking, thirst quenching

Bought a 16.9 oz bottle Whole Foods $3.74
Very faint smell of spices, citrus.
Hazy golden amber tinged color
Medium-light mouthfeel
Medium-light carbonation
Tastes of oranges, light spices
Overall not an exciting beer. Seems like a light version of a hefe. Wouldn't buy again.

Had Pinkus Hefe-Weizen poured from 16.9-oz. bottle, label stamped "94000N3," into pilsner glass.

This is a sophisticated Hefe, or underwhelming some find, with subtle aromas and only a hint of banana. All the classic flavors are there--hop and wheat spice, cloves, banana--but carried on a mildly-sweet body to a bready finish.

The pour is somewhere between dark yellow & light orange & it is well carbonated. The aroma seems to be muted, but if I really stick my schnoz down in the hefeweizen glass I can pick up on some faint banana & wheat notes. The taste is a mild banana & mild wheat note & water. This beer is too watered down for my liking. I prefer a mucher bolder hefeweizen although I do notice a bottled on date on back of the bottle label. Cheers! B-

L-Pours a hazy straw gold bodied beer with with a very tiny, lacy head. An almost murky look.
S- The smell is very faint, but I do pick up some some banana and clove. Some unpronounced sweetness as well as maybe some apple? Not a bad smell, just criminally faint.
T- The flavor is sweet and slightly fruity. Notes of clove and banana, as well as some lemon. Toned down, but interesting enough. There's some nice bitterness at the end as well.
F- Milky and cloudy mouth feel. Medium bodied beer. A little bit of carbonation, but honestly a bit watery too.
O- Below average beer. It isn't bad, and I enjoy it to an extent, but there isn't anything great or even really good about this beer. Seems a bit premature.

Pours a very cloudy yellow. Head is white with decent retention. Minimal lacing.
Wheat up front with bit of lemon. It then transitions into banana peel and clove. No lingering aromas.
Similar to the nose but with out the banana and clove. This one isn't too complex.
Mouthfeel is soft and pleasant. Carbonation feels right.

Ehhh..very average. In fact, the most average Hefeweizen I've ever had. I'd say it's the Coors of Hefeweizen.
Nose is a sour wheat mash. Taste is very light, has a slightly thick mouthfeel with slightly sour first note which turns into a light biscuity/bready finish. Everything about this beer is "slight." As one of the other reviewers said, it feels "subdued," like it needs a kick of something to bring it into the big leagues. Leaves much to be desired.

It's not a bad beer. It's just very plain, and not what I would expect of a German hefe or any hefe for that matter.

DATE: August 26, 2017... OCCASION: another beautiful afternoon deserves a beer that says summer... GLASSWARE: Weihenstephan weizen... pours a dense, murky, carbonated lemon-yellow body (that oddly almost matches its label's color)... four fingers of white froth sits thick as wet snow, with pockets of air trapped between the glass and the beer... banana and clove immediately, some noble hops that ping in a metallic remark, buttery biscuit, old vegetable, and sour dough... not the aroma I expected from a brewery at its craft since 1816--more like a draw... the mouthfeel is aided by its bright introduction, a creamy middle, and its hearty, lingering finish--tart, acidic, and reasonably substantial for a weizen... clove, banana, pear, and biscuit serve a fruity meal in and of itself... the earthy, almost dank vegetable couples with dish detergent lemon to counter the initial flavor profile... the result? A beer I find complimentary to the day, but in need of more pronounced, better balanced ingredients... refreshes, stays around, and treats you with a modicum of respect... maybe a victim of expectation? at $2.99 a 500ml bottle, not quite worth the return....

Hazy, light gold appearance with disappearing white cap and moderate lacing.

Light, clean scent of citrusy spice with a touch of banana. Some yeasty bread in the background.

Taste is moderately tart on entry followed by spicy banana and something that feels both floral and citrus, but not too much.

Light-medium texture balanced by carbonation.

Overall it's a pleasant lunch time drink that doesn't overpower the dish.

Cloudy orange with little head that disappears. Rich bready smell. Tastes bready with some fruity esters. Mouthfeel is good, sparkling carbonation with a bloom of taste and alcohol. Overall, this is a hefeweizen a little outside of the usual taste, but it is very good in all respects. A little creamier than other hefeweizens I have had, but well worth trying and I think can be appreciated many times.
