Tiene una cabeza espumosa que perdura por bastante tiempo. Es de cuerpo medio y de baja carbonatación. Del aroma se rescata el trigo y la levadura. Del sabor nuevamente se realza el trigo, y también el clavo de olor y el plátano.

Had at Township Beer Hall, Tallahassee, Florida, on draft into half-liter faceted mug.

Huge hefeweizen aroma, beautiful appearance, and a drying finish. Hofbräu’s Hefeweizen is not the standard setter, but is a big part of the tradition.

Poured from 330ml bottle into glass. This bottle is labeled as "Hofbrau Hefe Weizen". Dating on back label is 'L 085 R 13:28', which makes bottling date to be late March of 2018. Brown bottle.
Partly cloudy, pale gold colored body. Three finger creamy, white head upon pouring, which settles to thick creamy cap.
Aroma of wheat, yellow straw, banana, and cloves.
Taste manifests the aroma, with sweet bubblegum, mild green apple, and the banana/clove spices.
Medium mouth feel. Good carbonation. Has a combination of crispness and being a smooth drinker.
Easy to drink, and a very good example of a German wheat ale.

From the tap at the Panama Beach Hofbräuhaus, it was poured into a weizenbier glass and came out a hazy amber with a nice off-white head. Banana and clove in the nose. The mouth gets the same, with the nice easy drinking flavor of a classic hefe-weizen. Yum!

11.2oz bottle. I have had this a few times previously but never gave a review. Hazy golden body with a tall frothy white head. Typical Hefe yeast, lemongrass, bubblegum, and clove for aroma and flavor. Light-to-medium bodied while being creamy and smooth. Overall, it's a solid go-to for the style, as expected.

From bottle bought in Germany. Pours hazy, bright gold in color with two inch head. Taste is banana, clove, and wheat. Light bodied, sweet, semi-crisp, and high carbonation. Amazing, light, and refreshing. Could have several.

Poured into narrow pint glass: color straw, transparent, head is brighter white with fine bubbles and some lacing on the glass.

Smell is bubble gum, clove, hint of banana and toasty wheat malt.

Taste has a bit more bread and toast upfront with the hefe yeast notes providing pleasant mix of flavors - bubble gum, clove, banana.

Mouthfeel is crisper, dryer than some others in this style which i guess i slightly prefer the wheatier/fuller takes on the style.

Overall a crisper/dryer version of the style but still some quality hefe flavors and aromas.
