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.

L: on tap in Munich. Gives a yellow cloudy color with a huge top of creamy head that disolves slowly. Thick lacings on the glass.

S: banana, lemon, yeast, cloves and peppercorn.

T&F: follows the nose for the most part, banana sweetness with some spicy cloves in the back.spices and lemon in the finish with a dry long aftertaste.a good spicy mouthfeel on the flavour.creamy and clean mouthfeel.

O: a great and tasty hefeweizen,this is a good bavarian example of the style. Would sure try it again. One of the better one out there.

11.2oz bottle, it's been a few years since I had this one, but I remember it being good
A - very cloudy yellow ale with fluffy white head that holds good retention
S - wheat, banana, clove, yeast, and a hint of lemon; typical traditional hefeweizen aroma
T - great balance between banana & clovey yeast esters, cracked wheat, lemony & earthy hops
M - light bodied, but nice and creamy
O - great example of a traditional German Hefeweizen. Always recommendable and always delicious. This is a top notch German bier and brewery!

Pours lighter colored than other Hefeweizens with a 2 finger head.

Aromas of banana, clove, lemon, and baked malts.

Flavor is a little more washed out than I'd like, but all the elements are there. Bread crusts, citronella, banana, water, clove, yeast.

Feel is also lighter than expected but that's a welcome guest here. Carbonated, light creaminess. Semi-dryness on the finish.

Overall, a solid Hefe. I'd do it again, but it's not particularly memorable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Look: Cloudy light orange-yellow with a big white head (though I poured it a little more quickly than I meant to)

Smell: Hints of citrus and perhaps a little caramel overshadowed by yeast, bread

Taste: Very yeasty, similar to pretzel wheat; very clean; a bit of lemon aftertaste

Feel: Regular carbonation, dry aftertaste

Overall: A solid beer, though I feel like I'm missing something. It tastes very plain to me. There's nothing *wrong* with it, but I wouldn't say it's all that great either. Not sure I understand the high overall rating, but that's just my opinion.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 12oz bottle into Weizen glass. No bottling or freshness date.

L: Typical cloudy (Yeast added as it should be in a Hefe) yellow Hefe color. Beautiful fluffy white three finger head.

S: Banana, clove, wheat and yeast. Complex additions are lemon and apple. Outstanding retention.

T: Light banana flavors are delicious with the added clove, then flavors of yeasty wheat bread shine and end with faint lemon in the background. Superb.

F: Light, crisp and clean.

O: The best Hefeweizen out there.
