Nice, cloudy pale copper color when poured, with a full, cereal aroma lending to the wheat of the beer. Great, clean, buttery flavor, clearly superior, with little distracting aftertaste. Smooth in the mouth, goes down nicely. A superior hefeweizen. I will be getting this again.

I bought a six pack in bottles. The bottles were 11.2 fluid ounces with the bottle number of L 175 P 12:42. I could not find an expiration date. It was refrigerated and poured into a pint shaped glass.

Appearance: golden and cloudy. The beer looked lively and the carbon bubbles still rapidly ascend as I write this. Not much of a head as I poured it with the glass tilted.

Smell: nutty and floral

Taste: well carbonated with a smoky feel. The beer goes down dry as I didn't get much of an aftertaste

Mouth Feel: crisp and oily

Overall: I enjoyed the beer as it wasn't heavy and sweet. Hofcrau Munchen brand seems universally well enjoyed. I've tried their October Fest and it was delicious. I can get this brand regularly at my local beverage store. Easily a beer you can bring to a gathering. Beer Advocate's description stated the ABV as 5.4% but on the bottle it reads 5.1%.

Served from bottle to glass at the Bavarian Inn in Frankenmuth, MI. Perfect atmosphere for an HB. Golden color with a finger of small, even sized bubbles. Beautiful wheat aroma, banana and bread. Taste follows, some clove and sweet honey-like notes. Smooth, silky feel and clean finish.

Cloudy amber with lots of white head. Smells of olives and lemons with a bit of a musty/bread scent in the backdrop. Clean, lemony flavor with a bit of a crust flavor in the malts. Solid medium body. All around, a well-rounded and enjoyable beer.

Artwork: Typical HB label. Not easy to distinguish from HB's other products which feature near-identical labels.

Appearance: Hazy orange with a couple of inches of head that is reduced in half within a minute.

Nose: Smells surprisingly lager-like. I don't detect much banana or clove on the nose.

Taste: This time clove and banana are both present with the former being somewhat more pronounced. Not too sweet.

Mouthfeel: Nice medium body with smooth, velvet-like, carbonation.

Overall: A typical mainstream German hefeweizen. A bit more clove than I'm comfortable with but nonetheless a very refreshing beer for a hot summer's day.

L- Golden
S- Wheaty, light, vanilla
T + F - Wheaty, very bready, jerky like after taste
O - Light and Breezy brew

I find that I'm not much of a whet guy though so my review reflects that more-so.

Golden body with white bubbly head that stays. Aroma of vanilla, banana, papaya, honey, flowers. Tastes of wheat, honey, floral notes, banana, vanilla. Light bodied with medium carbonation.
