500ml bottle poured into a weizen glass.

Cloudy deep golden yellow color with massive silky white head that withstands with exceptional retention, it doesn’t go anywhere until the last sip but just sits there atop and only leaves some trail of lace.

There are good yeasty profiles in a nose with sweet bubblegum yet big banana and banana bread covers through. Then it is crisp citrus and lime, clove spice and pepper, as well as rich aroma of dough and bready malt.

The taste is true to the style with the lead of fruity ester ranging from banana and banana bread as well as citrus and lime. Clove and peppery spice reveal in the middle together with rich dough and bready malt. Hop is just there at the end with a slight bitter touch.

Medium body with some good crisp and moderate lively carbonation through the palate, the mouthfeel is so smooth with some refreshing feel and dry finish.

This one is truly a benchmark of what traditional Hefeweizen is all about, truly good old beer.

Brau Weisse pours a hazy golden color with a small, but long lasting and lacing head. Nice creamy aroma with big hints of banana. Taste is also very creamy, with a nice malty backbone, lots of banana but finishes dry not sweet. Good body and feel. Overall, top notch hefe, on the drier side and a full flavor.

Poured from the half liter bottle into a small sampling glass. A semi-aggressive pour produces a one inch snowy white head that dissipates fairly quickly. The beer is a slightly hazy pale straw color, with lively carbonation.

The aroma-flavor is pleasantly funky and showcases citrus, banana and spice. Snappy crisp on the finish and tingly on the tongue. This would make a lovely session beer on a hot day.

Another excellent German import at a reasonable price. This bottle was purchased for $3.49 at Front Street Market in Butte, Montana.

Poured from 11.2 ounce bottle into pint glass. Beautiful cloudy yellow color, with nice 3 finger head. Hint of a fruity/banana aroma on the nose. Smooth, light creamy feel, with nice finish. Leaves light lacing on glassware.
All in all, a well crafted Heft Weizen!

A typical unfiltered spicy and banana wheat. Smooth and creamy mouth feel even though highly cabonated. Slight hop bitterness but generally a balanced brew.
