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.

On tap. Poured into a Hobräu weizen glass. Hazy orangish-straw color with a white multi-finger head that leaves several inches of lacing. Nose of yeast, citrus, and banana. Taste is banana, yeast, and light citrus with a bit of dry, fruity finish. Medium carbonation and medium body with proper carbonation for the style.
Authentic hefeweizen that delivers on classical look, taste, and feel. Smooth drinker that is big enough to pair with a meal and refreshing enough to have on an outdoor porch.

Ahh, morning beers at the Hofbrauhaus. What better way to start the day. Classic bready banana goodness, not quite the caliber of the Schneiderweiss from the night before. Maybe it's just this bright orb in the sky that seems to be warming my beer rather quickly. Must drink faster...

The look may not be so sophisticated, but great taste and goes perfectly with German sausages.

Not bad in the smell/taste categories but the look and feel just fall a little short for me.
