It meets all the characteristics of what a Weizen should be - banana/fruity overtones, cloudy appearance with strong lace, carbonation and nice, sweet refreshing, taste with no bitterness or even aggressive acidity. Now, whether it measures up to the great Weizens I can't say because I haven't tried them all so I'm going on its own merits. I enjoyed it very much.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured 11.2oz bottle into snifter glass. 5.3 % abv

Appearance- Pours a golden yellow orange with a thick white head. Very hazy.

Smell- Grains, banana bread, clove.

Taste- Wheat based malt flavor up front. Turning more sweet, with a bready banana bread taste coming next. Sweetness lingers and blends with some bitterness into the finish. Flavor profile finishes with a bit of clove and wheat.

Mouthfeel- Thin/medium with active carbonation.

Overall- A seemingly light bodied, banana forward hefeweizen. Does not rival the greats for this style, but quite solid.

My family bought two crates of this Weizenbier because it was on sale in Germany.
When poured into a glass it looks like a typical Weizenbier, with a golden orange colour.
The taste is nice, a sweetness like honey, but a bit thin or light. The taste is not really intense and does not last long.
I would say it is a good normal Weizenbier but there are better ones.

Pint served in a proper hefeweizen glass at the restaurant I ate lunch at today. On tap and served with an orange wedge (yuck)

Appearance - Hazy and rich golden and orange colored beer. Impressive two and a half fingers of frothy white head with above average retention and lots of lace. Hefeweizens may be the most beautiful beer in the world when served properly into fine glassware.

Smell - Banana and clove as per usual. A little heavier on the banana than most. General wheat backing adds something.

Taste - A little thinner than some, while quite refreshing, this weizen didn't have the magic of others. Banana is steady and the clove a little underdone here making it a touch to sweet.

Mouthfeel - Smooth and light with a somewhat dense feel and middling carbonation.

Overall - A good but not great hefeweizen that I'm happy to have tried nonetheless.

L: pours a cloudy golden orange color. Nice head of creamy head that disolves slowly. Sticky lacings on the sides of the glass.

S: banana, cloves and some honey

T&F: fruity and sweet in the start with some bready notes Inn the background, more spices Inn the middle with a lot of cloves.dry and long finish. Light carbonation with medium body. Mouthfeel are smooth and creamy.

O: A decent and easy driking hefeweizen , but compared to the topshelf german hefeweizen this gets a little to anonymous inn the flavours.

From 500ml bottle into a weizen glass.
L: Cloudy, dark apricot colour. Lots of carbonation rising to three fingers of off-white, soapy head. Head becomes lumpy pretty quickly but leaves arcs of lacing.
S: Not much nose. Some banana and bubblegum. No clove.
T: Classic weizen flavours are subdued. Some sweetness.
F: Silky mouthfeel up front. Becomes dry. Moderate to high carbonation. Slightly harsh finish.
O: A little underwhelmed. Not a bad hefeweizen but not top notch either. Looks great but smell and taste both lack punch.

A decent Bavarian Weizen. Has the traditional aroma and for the most part the flavors although with the texture being a bit soft, the flavor's affected by that too.
