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.

This little hefewiezen is a tribute to what a true hefeweizen is supposed to be. A cloudy unfiltered haze of amber with the smell of mild fruit with the addition of a wave of wheat. The taste is of mild hoppyness to overtones bright and mild sweetness and a bread like finish. Overall a great hefewiesen in my opinion.

Poured into a weizen glass. Bottle labled "Hofbrau Hefe Weizen", and the ABV is 5.1, so I'm guessing this is the same thing. Pours a slightly hazy, medium golden amber with a half finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of semi-sweet wheat, lemon, a little graininess, clove and a hint of caramel; inviting. Flavor starts with mildly grainy wheat, slight lemon and clove, dries out a little into a wheat finish with lingering light lemon tartness and clove with light residual bitterness. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A pleasant hefewiezen with a characteristic flavor profile. A little drier in the finish than others, but overall a good flavor transition. The green bottle got me prepared for skunking, but none was detected here, perhaps because of the low hopping in this style (or luck with dark storage in transportation). A classic German brewery that knows what they are doing. Hofbrau was the dominant brand when I visited Munich in the 1970s and this shows why they are so popular.

A very nice and mild wheat beer...

This particular brew has a distinct orange tinge to it and pours a beautifully white head. The head had some staying power and good lacing. The smell was light on wheat and some background fruity notes - surprising in my book. For feels I found it carbonated but still very crisp and light-bodied. I tasted pretty much what I smelled and I was very happy with it. A solid brew that I can't help to partake of more tonight.
