Stunning appearance, hits the bright yellow notes, perfection in terms of the degree of wheat/haze throughout the beer, almost a full 1" of white head. Aroma was wheat grains and lemon impact. Yeast not overly done with the spice rack phenols.

More of the spice rack in the taste and mouthfeel though. Cabronation high, breadiness ample. Fans of tradition will like this, mine was kind of opposite, I liked how the aroma wasn't overly traditional and smelly of band aids, esters, phenols, but the taste and mouthfeel brought 'em all back into play.

Finally, a real weizen that’s made it this far west without becoming skunked. Oh how I’ve missed these flavors. Banana, bubblegum, cloves, weizen through and through. Only knocks against this are: bottle is too small to fill my half liter weizen glass, body is a bit thin and no sediment. Solid hefe, tastes great!

Poured into HB Munchen glass from 500ml bottle. Cloudy, pale yellow/orange with massive three finger mousse head. Plenty of carbonation visible. Thick lacing. Yeasty nose with banana, cloves, wheat. Strong banana & lemon flavour with a spicy finish. Some bittersweet. Light to medium body with hefty carbonation and a little sour yeast. Very enjoyable, relatively light, version of a great beer style.

From Hipercor. In Bavaria glass. Watching Sons of Anarchy 5x02-03. The best classic hefe Ive taken so far. Smooth texture, great nose and taste, good looking foam.

This beer is a great exponent of the hefeweizen style. Pours golden, hazy with a very thick white foam head. Smells right, banana, cloves, spices, bread, wheat. Taste is complex with a dominant banana note, also bread and yeast. Excellent beer.
