Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium top of white head that dissolves quickly. Aroma is of ripe bananas, wheat, cloves and spicy yeast.
The flavour follows the nose with sweet banana notes and dry spiciness with some light malt tones in the back. The finish has a slight bitterness, and the aftertaste has an decent lenght.
Mouthfeel is smooth and crisp with an medium carbonation and a prickly carbonation.
A good and refreshing hefeweizen. True to the style.

11.2 oz bottle with Julian date code "L 226 R." R is the 18th letter so 2018 and 226th day is August 14th. Bottled on Aug 14, 2018.

Pours a cloudy, deep gold color after stirring up and adding the yeast. Big, fluffy white head with great retention.

Aroma is your classic hefeweizen combo of banana and clove. Good balance in the flavor between fruit and spice, with neither overpowering. Some lemony citrus added in for good measure. Soft and smooth on the palate. Just a joy to drink. Light bodied, perfect carbonation.

Near textbook hefeweizen with all of the flavors and textures on point. Weihenstephaner and Ayinger are a slight notch above, but you could do a lot worse than this. Beautifully done.

Draft. Cloudy yellow body, slightly pulpy, quarter finger white head, fair retention, lots of lacing. Appearance wise, this all fit into a shaker pint glass so the head was all wrong. Smell is clove, spice, mineral, banana bread, cracker, grass. Flavour follows, a bit more zesty bitterness and floral notes on the finish, big clove and not as much iso banana. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, easy to drink with good banana flavours.

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.
