From the moment you pour this beer, it reminds you of a true southern German heffe-wiezen. It brings me back to days of being stationed in the former West Germany. When poured, it easily produces an excellent creamy head with a light and refreshing flavor. The beer itself goes down wonderfully and pairs easily with pork, kraut and grilled meats. The beer also performs double duty as it lends well to traditional German mixed beer drinks (radler, cola-weizen, etc.)The appearance is definitely what you want for a traditional unfiltered beer, cloudy and golden. Cloudy with a slightly bitter after taste, but not the strong bitter flavor one would find from the hops in an IPA. Try adding a bit of lemon or rice to have a quick vacation to Germany.

500 mL bottle, thanks Thorpe!

Pours a hazed straw golden with a frothy white head. Nose of banana, yeast, lemon and sweet malt. Medium thick and soft on the pallet with a strong banana flavor. Light clove and grass, but fairly sweet and smooth. Simple but adequate.

Bought this from the LCBO. A white head cloudy pale dirty orange. Good head retention and lots of foamy lacing. Spicy fruity yeast smells. The flavour is rather more subdued than the smell. A bit of a sour note in the finish. Very Smooth. Overall an interesting hefeweizen. Not my personal favourite of the style, but well worth a try!

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a Schneider Weisse weizen glass.

Pours a hazy golden/orange colour with a very lively head.

Smells very yeasty and quite fresh.

Tastes very fresh as well. Quite prominent wheat flavour with a bitter and spicy hop kick.

Overall a really great beer, a perfect example of the style.
