Pours a dark orange-brown color. Huge pillowy white head collapses slowly but steadily for a moment before tailing off and leaving a good inch of foam on top of the beer.

Aroma has notes of nutmeg and clove, kind of a spiced bread character. I’m not getting much if any banana or anything in that vein. Some wheat malt notes come through.

Taste follows the nose with muddled notes of nutmeg, clove, pepper, minerals, and a spicy yeasty note. Kind of acidic on the finish with a quick wrap up of the flavors. Can’t shake the sense of a certain wateriness to the flavor profile - I can only compare it to tea - you get that watery note but it’s not “weak”.

Feel is medium to full bodied, with a prickly vibrant carbonation.

Overall, I have to be honest I was disappointed in this. I’ll need to revisit it again at some point, but I had high hopes and it just didn’t do it for me. The flavor was just off from what I want from the style.

This beer is almost the same with "Paulaner blondie" but with more fruity taste.. It has very fresh taste and it can't disappoint you.. And it is very rich like a beer..
Overall very good and safe choice to drink that beer in some place.. The only bad is, i can't drink over than one beer of it because i feel bloated in my stomach...

500ml bottle. Bottling date stamped on label is '270319'.
Cloudy, medium to dark amber colored body. Multi finger off white head, which stays around as a soft pillow.
Aroma is phenolic cloves, banana, pencil eraser, bubble gum, and wheat malt. Minimal hop spice.
Taste is banana, citrus, cloves, bubble gum and tangy wheat malt. No so much with definite hop contribution.
Medium plus mouth feel, and very comfortable in the mouth. Very good carbonation support.
Tremendously easy to drink, with very pleasant mouth feel. The banana is not so strong here, more with the cloves and bubble gum, and the wheat malt. Quite refreshing.

This is a weird-looking Hefe. It pours with a typical head for the style -- 3-4 fingers, off-white and velvety. The foam dissipates rather quickly. The beer itself is quite dark. As in Marzen dark. Kind of off-putting.

The smell is phenolic with cloves and faint cinnamon.

The taste is citrusy, like an orange. There's some wheat there but the citrus really dominates. A lot of reviewers are picking up banana notes, but I'm not getting any.

Mouthfeel is standard for a Hefe. Medium body.

This is definitely a beer worth checking out. Not my favorite take on the style, but I could see myself buying this again.

500mL bottle, pours darker than expected- copper colored and cloudy with a tall and creamy off-white head. Aroma is traditional hefe with scents of banana, clove, wheat, lemon, and bubblegum. Flavors match aroma, but seems overly sweet. Lighter body, higher carbonation, balanced finish. This is good overall, but I prefer some other German brewed ones more than this one.

Poured from fridge temp into tall Schneider Weisse glass. Pours a nice semi-transparent orange with surprisingly little head. Nose is orange, wheat, caramel, bread. Taste is super nice. I love the toffee notes that come through on almost all of the Schneider Weisse beers. It's a bit of a toffee candy taste. Some bread, oak, raisin, and wheat. Really nice overall.

Cerveza dorada con un dedo de espuma que dura poco tiempo. Carbonatación y cuerpo medio. Aroma a malta, caramelo y banana. En boca es agradable, afrutada con un parte levemente cítrica.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Look: It pours cloudy amber with a full white head.

Smell: It has a balanced banana and clove aroma. It also has some doughy wheat aroma. There is also a faint bubble gum aroma in the background.

Taste: The taste has a strong banana character with doughy wheat and clove in support.

Feel: It has a moderately full body with a sweet finish. The bananas and doughy wheat stand out in the finish.

Overall, a very good beer with balanced aromas and a bit on the banana side in the taste.

Cloudy, translucent light brown in appearance, with a creamy off white head. Good retention.
The nose is pink bubblegum, banana bread, cooked sweet red apple, and hay.
The flavor is banana bread, pink bubblegum, cooked sweet red apple, pear, and hay.
The mouthfeel is creamy, well-carbonated, smooth, medium-plus upfront and then slightly thin on the finish. Lightly sweet upfront but finishes lightly dry.
It's a decent Hefeweizen. Not bad but not one of my favorites.

From notes 4/22/12: Pours hazy orange brown with 1+ inch of rapidly dissipating, frothy, eggshell head that leaves no lacing. Aroma: wheat, pale malt, clove and a hint of banana. Taste is wheat, bread, banana and clove with a little fruitiness. Dry with a light biting finish.

Darker than expected, a coppery brown color. Has a mild, sweet flavor, really getting the banana flavor from this one. Overall this is very good but not life changing.

Cloudy orange/brown color with generous, yeasty lace. Fruity (mostly banana), bread aromas and overtones. Medium carbonation, low bitterness, hint of spiciness but an overall great feel and taste. There's a lot going on here and it all smoothly balances off nicely.

Light brown color with decent carbonation but lower head and low lacing. Smelsst sweet and malty with just a little bread yeast. Taste is similar with honey sweetness and dark bread notes but with liggt hints of banana fruityness. Light mellow body with just barely enough bittering to balance the sweetness. Great balance of rye bread and mellow drinkabilaty. As a whole, this beer is better than the sum of it's parts, which is the Hallmark of a perfected beer recipe.

500ml bottle. Hazy, orange/brown colour with a long-lived, fluffy, off-white head and arcs of lacing. Smells distinctly of banana & bubblegum. Malt to the fore with bubblegum and yeast flavours in the background. Medium/light body with soft mouthfeel despite the high carbonation. Finish is just a tad thin. A flavourful, smooth, easy-drinking, moderately dark, wheat beer.

I love this hefeweizen, it is my favorite German wheat beer. It has a nice feel, aroma and the complex flavors are the embodiment of what a proper hefeweizen should be. I have trouble limiting my consumption of this beer.

Aroma of banana, cloves,malt, yeasty banana bread. Taste was more subdued then the aroma but banana and cloves came out first. Not sweet, almost a little dry but overall a very good beer

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Beautiful fluffy white head with great lacing atop a slightly cloudy brownish body. Pleasant clove smell. Taste of clove, cinnamon, some banana. Very nice beer!

The pour into an 8 oz. glass was cloudy and it settled into a dark blonde - not so appetizing in appearance. But the smell was nice, almost like a smoked beer smell. The taste was fruity, and complex enough to taste different things in different sips. Ugly packaging, but it's what I usually expect from German beers - along with high quality. Very good.

Builds a two-inch, dense, creamy, off-white head that settles to one inch for the duration. The murky amber beer rates an SRM of 8-9. A coating of fine lace is deposited on the inside of a Spaten dimpled mug.

Rich caramel is pronounced over banana bread and light clovers. A sweet, yeasty dough is punctuated by faint molasses.

The flavor starts out with wheat bread and caramel, and is quite yeasty. Banana and clover may as well be absent in this simple flavor profile. Warmth presents a hint of gingerbread. The finish is long and tanic.

A medium body with modest carbonation and woolly texture. Alcohol is absent, while the finish is dry, leaving a cotton sensation.

While this is a fine drinking beer, its modest character makes it more well suited as a background beverage for casual conversation or, better yet, a boisterous evening.

This is one of the strangest German hefeweizens that I had thus far. It taste more like a dunkelweizen gone wrong. This is a terrible beer in the style, only an asinine fool would like this beer. Cheers! C-
