Sampled last night on 5/13/15. Comes in a single 500ml (16.9 ounce) nice looking bottle. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a "HB" handled-glass stein.

Brew pours a pretty apricot-amber in color with a good 3-finger foamy white head that lasted a good while before settling to still a 5mm+ head after 30 minutes even! Lots of frothy lacing is seen after each sip, like a fresh German brew on tap. The aroma is of yeast, like fresh bread with a hint of spice. Pretty much is said for the taste but with not a lot of spice as the aroma suggests. Does have a sweet malty taste also which is really nice. Goes down smooth with no bitter or harsh aftertaste at all. Medium-bodied with perfect carbonation. Overall a great brew!

Color was dark golden and hazy, as a Hefeweizen should be. Nice three finger fluffy white head. Aroma was fresh baked bread, with a touch of cloves and banana. The taste was rather sweet and malty, with some undertones of spice and banana, but not as pronounced as in the smell. The mouthfeel was thinner than the usual hefe, but very nice. Overall, pretty tasty, but doesn't quite match up with the better hefes.

This is my favourite wheat beer. It is milder yet has a very distinct flavour and taste. It doesn't feel heavy like the normal wheat beers but is refreshing like a summer beer. Has hints of Orange and distinct herbs. Naturally cloudy and has a tint of Orange.

This beer was a buttery, diacetyl mess. Almost none of the esters or phenolics I would expect from a decent German wheat. Had to pour out a third of the bottle. Might be personal taste, maybe they're going for that buttery taste, but its just not good.

Pours slightly hazy orange, lots of light, off-white foam. Weirdly soapy aroma; orange in the flavor plus a touch of spice. (The orange taste notes make me think the soapiness in the aroma was a citrus note that just got weird). Mouthfeel of a much lighter beer- crisp and cool, refreshing.

Has a darker murky orange color with decent 2 finger head. A little formidable looking for a Hefe

Smell - Very bready with a tingle of banana. Actually its very nice and not too sweet.

Taste - It's very well balance and smooth going down. Flavors are bready, malty mostly and a tinge of sweetness. A little crisp in the finish but very faint.

Mouthfeel - very full bodied and buttery for a light 5.3% brew.

Overall - This is a respectable and very German tasting Hefeweizen. Flavoring is a tad lackluster to me but overall this is a pleasant and sessionable German beer to go to on occasion. There are better offerings of the style out there but this one is worth a try.
