Let's face it, our friends in Deutchland know how to make beer. This is especially true when talking about this style. Although I've been to Hofbräuhaus House in Munich, I enjoyed this selection from a bottle at home in the USA. This is the standard...Hefeweizen is either better or worse than this. Good beer.

Very banana oriented. Quite smooth and light to the palate. Had this on tap at the Hofbräuhaus and it did not disappoint. Not a whole lot of wheat came through though which was surprising because it is a Hefe Weizen... But overall this is quality beer and does not disappoint!

Very creamy, very banana white bread to white bread crust background. Not a lot of hop presence, drinkable, excellent and persisten lace. Decent beer for a late summer evening.

Appearance - Cloudy yellow liquid with white head

Smell - this came off as unpleasant, which I will chalk up to the green bottling. Skunk aroma associated with Euro imports, slight clove/banana aroma

Taste - much better than the smell, I'm getting banana, clove, lemon and orange

Mouthfeel - light bodied, medium carbonation, refreshing and easy to drink

Overall - this is a decent representation of the style, although it doesn't quite hold up against the leaders of the pack in this category. Would like to try this on draft.

Price Point - $9.59/6 pack 11.2 oz bottles

The taste is good just a bit too light. A little more "wheaty" would give it some more heft.

Pours a semi-clear yellow-gold color with smooth white head and spotty lacing. Lots of carbonation striving for the top of the glass. Aroma, well, is like smelling the tail end of an agitated skunk that sat in a bowl of rotten lemons. Let's hope the taste is better. Taste is much much better than the smell, with flavors of tart lemon and other assorted citrus coming forth and a tartness that is very nice. Malt takes a backseat to the refreshing lemony taste. Mouthfeel is very nice with lots of carbonation and this is one smooth beer !!
