One of the betters Hefe brewed in Germany. Not to be bought everywhere, but if you spot it, go for it.

Nice taste, not too heavy, not too light, but still full bodied.

One of my favourites among Hefe.

Poured from a 500 M bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- A fantastic aroma of wheat, fruit and spices Appearance- Pours a murky orange/gold color with a thick, off-white head. Taste- Outstanding, what a hefeweizen should taste like. Great wheat and fruit mix. Palate- A medium to heavy beer with moderate carbonation. Has a creamy texture. Overall- A fantastic beer, a must try.

Draft at Octoberfest Budapest 2016. Unfortunately i could not make notes but the banana blast in the taste which followed the nose was amazin. Brutally good weizen, one of the best stuff i have ever tasted.

Maisel's Weisse has quickly become one of my favourite beers. After tasting it in Germany a couple of years ago, I hadn't been able to find a supplier back home in Scotland. However last week I discovered a fantastic bar that stocks the beer. After a couple of bottles I had re-discovered my love for the beer from back in Germany.

The beer was poured from a 500ml bottle into a weizen glass.

- Despite being a white beer, Maisel's Weisse pours a slightly darker, more amber colour than most other beers found in this category. Cloudy, with a thin white head.

- Very inviting and complex, however not overpowering. Quite fruity with a malty, wheaty note.

- Delicious! It was quite yeasty and sweet with a lovely wheat malt finish. I was getting slight hints of banana. It does taste slightly different to most other beers of it's kind. There was something slightly sweeter which I can't quite put my finger on. One of the things I love about this beer is that it's one of those ones where the different smells and tastes gradually appear. You might not taste the very slight hint of biscuity banana at first, but maybe after a few sips you will. It also has a very pleasant, rewarding aftertaste.

- Quite crisp and easy going. Very refreshing.

- Very drinkable. Perfect for a warm summer night (or day!). You should always have a few of these in the fridge.

One of the best beers around! Quite hard to find on the high street but you can get it online and may even be lucky enough to find a good bar near you!

This may be my current favorite beer. If you love hefeweizens like I do you owe it to yourself to try this one. It's not hoppy or too citrusy. It has that great wheat taste with a warm caramel note. Mine came in a cool glass too.

Typical German Hef. If brewed to style, they're all pretty much the same.

Incredible on tap, loved having it every time I made it to Köln or Frankfurt Germany. It has a light taste, great smell, and is a terrific example of a classic weissbier.

Pours a perfect orange yellow, huge white head that melds with the last drops of yeast-saturated beer. Crazy as the yeast seems to actualy layer and blend between the orangish top and the yellowish bottom of the full weiss glass.

Freaking huge aroma of weisenstephan yeast strain, my favorite. Pinapple, banana, clove and fresh hallertau hops all very present. An incredible and thick flavor of fresh hefeweiss smacks your taste buds with all that a hefeweiss should be. Carbonation is high rendering this beer very refreshing and palate cleansing. On the downside, it fills you up awful fast, making this a nice summer quencher but hardly a session ale.

Try it fresh when in Germany!

A: on the darker side of Hefeweizens, cloudy with a huge fluffy white head. Murky orange brown in color.

S: Super hearty yeast, hint of lemon.

T: Perfect fullness for a Hefeweizen, and perfect degree of sweetness as well. The yeast is so well blended as a flavor in the beer. Tastes like it contains lemon already.

M: Relatively smooth and heavy with extremely mild carbonation.

D: This is a fantastic Hefeweizen. Hearty and well balanced.

I'm finding Hefeweizens very similar these days. This is no exception, but it's just that 10% better all round. Taste, feel, smell etc and it has a little more bite and sharpness
