Damn good wheat! And I really don't think I would need it to be too much better. Everything is in its place here. The color is of artisanal honey-much like that found in the south of France- deeper than most hefe's with a hazy, slightly murky golden brown color. The beer is highly refreshing with that scrubbing, cleansing carbonation that I love in the style sending out streaks of subtle banana and spice then harmoniously blending the two flavors on the finish, which I wish was a tad bit longer. But this is still a hard to beat Hefe that if you find it...you should buy it! I bought my sample for a modest 1.99

Excellent wheat beer!! Cloudy yellow with lots of carbonation and foam throughout the glass. Clovey, citrus, and tart yet very refreshing.. The senses are dazzled by the appearance and the flavor of this very drinkable hefeweizen, worth seeking out and enjoying.

O beautiful day that I should partake in such liquid silk...

This intoxicatingly good hefeweiss is a hazy, lazy-day gold with a generous, fluffy cloud sitting on top of it. The scent has a nose of spice and overall, the presentation is fit for royalty.

There is the presence of the clove and banana character that is popular to most well-crafted wheats, but this has so much more going on. There are lovely notes of strawberry, melon, juicy citrus, vanilla, black pepper and a nice touch of sweet malt. The carbonation is right on the money, and compliments the complexity of this ale brilliantly. It is rich and luscious in mouthfeel, and undeniably smooth on the palate. The finish is pure and refreshing. A slight, mellow tingle lingers on in the mouth.

I think this would go great with some pork ribs that have been rubbed down with some Jerk seasoning. Perhaps with a side of beans that have been cooked in coconut milk.

O, who cares at this point. This is a treat in and of itself.

This beer poured a cloudy light gold color and formed a nice huge foamy head that coated the glass with lace as it slowly subsided. A medium amount of carbonation is present. The aroma is of hops, clove and banana. The flavor was of hops and grain with a touch of citrus and clove. It had a medium body and a nice sprite finish to it.

Pours a slightly cloudy, golden amber with a very pillowy head that last much longer than most hefes I've seen. Scents of hops, lemon, and hay waft from this brew. The beer tastes of buterscotch, wheat, hops, and hints of amaretto. A little different than other hefes I've had, maybe because its a golden or bavarian style hefe I don't know. What I do know is I really liked this beer and thought it was great and will be getting many, many more.

Mountainous, pillowy head is typical hefe, but retention and lacing are far superior to most. All this action over a cozy clouded canary hue. Fruit salad nose of banana, apple, and strawberry on a fat piece of lemon pound cake. Delicate hints of clove, ginger and star anise. Superbly balanced through a draught as clean malt turns into a mild tartness riding the back of a zippy wheat past a small field of hops. Tartness lingers all fruity. Refreshing, yet full and rounded, lemon custard and meringue. Choice Weizen!

The beer pours a nice “Chill Hazed” golden light amber color with a prodigious head that is bright white, the consistency frothy, and as it dissipates, it leaves a fine coating to conceal the glass. Nose has a distinct bread dough aroma, sweet malt, citrus crisp and clean, and a real sniffable beer, with the start sweet and full of malt, a middling top. Finish has a nice hop presence, mildly acidic, the after taste dry and long lasting.

I received this beer as part of a "mass-purchase" with some of my friends and fellow BA's. An EXCELLENT choice!

Pours a tantalizing orangish-gold color with the standard Hefeweizen cloudiness. A giant feathery lace that persisted and coated the glass. The aroma was spectacular with all sorts of fruity aromas in competition with one another. The flavor is wonderful, with the fruity dominance with just a trace of spice in the background to tease you. It massages your taste buds and is smooth as silk to drink.

Far and away my favorite Hefeweizen.

Hazy, cloudy orange-ish gold with a full white head and lasting carbonation. A fruity bubblegum aroma and a fruity taste but not really banana; More apple-ish maybe with a bit spicy finish. Light bodied, smooth, and refreshing.

Pours a beautiful cloudy orangey/golden color with a huge pillowy, creamy, white head that last forever and laces the glass rather nicely. Huge spicy aroma of cloves and some slightly more subtle pepper. There is a bit of fruitiness in the background but it is almost completely masked by the spiciness. The taste starts off very fruity with some great banana and some slightly orangish qualities to it before it fades into a nice spiciness in the middle of the brew before fading back to it's fruitiness and getting some big time banana flavors and then finishing nicely balanced flourish of fruitiness and spiciness. The mouthfeel on this one is a bit on the thin side but that is about the only thing wrong with this beer as it is still super creamy and refreshing and extremely drinkable. This may have just performed a coup on the throne of my favorite hefe. An absolutely excellent bier.

Pours a cloudy peach / golden color with yeasties floating around. Fluffy and frothy but creamy white head. On the nose there are aromas of citrus, bananas and cloves. On the palate it is slightly tart at first sip, then rounds out, cloves, apple, spicy, and banana flavors. Medium body with smooth mouthfeel. I think this may be one of the best Hefe’s I ever had. Overall this was a very flavorful, refreshing, and thirst quenching brew…prosit!
