Pours a dirty golden color with a nice white head that dissipated into a nice cap but left no lacing. The smell is typical hefe, good banana, bubble gum and clove smell, juicy, very nice hefe aromas. The taste is unfortunately not as great as the smell. The taste is of banana cream pie but is cut short by a sharp green apple bitterness, a bit malty. The feel is light but not watery, a nice wheat edge, finishes very balanced. A very good hefe, could use some more banana, bubble gum or clove flavors. Respectful.

From a large brown bottle, this brew is a murky, cloudy gold color with a puffy white head. The head produces a fine lace. Nice aroma too...a bit of banana, loads of yeast, a touch of sweet citrus, and a lot of bread and flour. It's a raw and unrefined smell, but it's quite good...a bit wild. The taste is earthy and rustic, with lots of lemon, orange, and yeast flavors. It's like a baking bread mixed with orange and lemon peels. There's also a bit of smoke in the background of the taste. It's odd and a bit misplaced, but I like it a lot. The body is a bit heavier than others of the style, with quite a lot of carbonation. A bit lighter would have been more appropriate. This is a fine beverage.

Was happy to see some unknown things I had to look up on this site at my local store last time I visited. They had grown a little complacent and stale recently but I think they're back in the groove now. Totally unknown Bavarian hefe with only four reviews...nice.

This one looks nice, with classic orange hue and decent creamy white head. Cloudy body with banana/clove whiff and yeasty tone to it. Taste is very creamy for a hefe but still refreshing and tasty. Mouthfeel is a little thicker than expected and not very crisp but still drinkable. It's a bit raw for the style but I like it's unprocessed, unfiltered personality. Not for beginners but weisse fans will find something to like here.

I spotted this on the shelf in Dunnes Stores (foodstore), and had never heard of it so purchased 2 bottles. Anyway, I'm on a hefeweissbier thing these last few weeks. Also to note that it cost €1.90 compared to €2.40 for Schofferhoffer and €2.20 for Franziskaner.

Poured a quite murky amber beer with a reasonable head. Best by date was 29.03.07 (tasting date 28.07.06).
In typical German fashion, this was a quality brew. It had not got the subtleties of Weihensteph., Paulaner or the other 2 mentioned above, but this was a good value and quite satisfying beer to drink.

I will be buying this again, though the price may be a promo one.

By the way; I am sure that the man illustrated on the label is St Valentine, but he sure looks like JC himself!
