Very smooth malt background, rich yeast flavors, spicy, with fruity banana tones, reminiscent of clove, very balanced wheat beer. Washes down easy and lasting tasting notes. Nice carbonation and dark colour and a medium bodied beer. Tasted from a bottle and tap, both are just as good. personally prefer the bottle cos you can control the pour / head and more importantly the goodness that’s left at the bottom. non pasteurized, bottle conditioned.

very clean and well-balanced taste, I think. darker colour than normal Hefe-weissen or weisse style beer. bought this at a local LCBO in Pelham,ON, Canada.
Usually I prefer Paulaner's Hefe-Weissen. This should be included in my favorite Weisse style beers. I really enjoyed drinking this beer. Thank you.

I have been trying hefe weizens for quite some time now and ever since reading about this one I have been looking for it. The dark color of it is appealing since it is not a dunkel but a original and for being a original it exceeds other dunkels in every aspect. The smell is a aromatic delite, with the taste bursting with flavors. So I would have to rank the drinkability as drink as many as you can but anyone who has drank alot of weizens would agree that isn't many because it is a very filling beer. Oh ya when you pour it make sure you get all the yeast from the bottom into your glass.

This brew pours a beautiful cloudy amber color with a considerable amount of carbonation. Even with the cloudy like look in the glass you can still see the large amounts of carbonation bubbles dancing to the top. I was somewhat surprised by the color as it is darker than your standard wheat beer. I used a weizen glass and there was a large marshmallow-like head that I wished stuck around a little longer. After it had dissipated I was left with a very slight lacing around the top of the glass.

The aroma was a mixture of fruits and subtle spices. The smell of clove and nutmeg is the first thing I detect. Bananas and apples add to the complex aroma that comes across yeasty. The overall aroma makes me want to take a drink immediately.

The taste is your reward here. It has a medium body where the fruits jump right out at you. At the first part of the taste you feel a slight bite from the carbonation. After the initial taste, the mixture of fruit definitely stands out. The mixture of banana, apple, and pear or orange blends perfectly. On the way down I can taste of hint of clove. In the end there is a very slight bitterness for balance.

Poured from a 0.5l bottle into a weizen glass. Date 07.088

I always thought that Weihenstephaner was the end all be all Hefe, but I have to give this beer a higher score.

A. Dark for a Hefe, a fuzzy amber. A great head and good carbonation.

S. This was where it first won me over. The smell is outstanding. The banana clove smell of other Hefes is mute, but this one smacks you right in the face. The aroma was very similar to their Aventinus.

T. Like it smells. This banana clove is very evident. If you ever want to demonstrate a bubble gum taste to a newbie, this is the beer.

M. Great carbonation! Medium body.

D. This is a great beer. It may become my new summer session beer.

From a pint bottle into a traditional weizen glass it poured a hazy, slighly dark golden to amber color. She had a thick, foamy, bubbly white head that stayed quite a while then slowly dissipated. One could notice a decent amount of carbonation. Appearance is spot on for this style. Aroma of banana, clove and wheat are there, just like they should be. Taste of wheat and yeast is dominant. Mouthfeel is ever so smooth and refreshing, yet a little dry, not too wet. Hops are not dominant, which is true to style. Very drinkable and enjoyable. This is the best example of the style that I have had the pleasure of experiencing.

I have had this beer twice. My first was a case bought here in Philadelphia which was somewhat disappointing. This rating is based on some bottles which a friend brought back from Germany and was a very different beer. The appearance was perfect - very cloudy, hazy amber with a nice pillowy head (when I bought this here is was crystal clear dark amber - totally different appearance). The smell was classic wheat beer - banana, clove, a little band-aid. The taste and mouthfeel were absolutely perfect - the same banana and clove, nice and dry, wonderful carbonation. This is THE standard for wheat beers. I could drink many of these on a warm day.

This has to be the most balanced Weisse beer that has been brewed from Germany. The smell of
yeasty bread, cloves, banana and more hint of different spices was overwelming. It poured a hazy lemon color with some white foam and loads of lace retention. The aroma and taste were just out of this world. All components combined, make this Hefe-Weisse just out of this world

In comparation to plenty of generic weizen beers from Germany (better marketed i owned by big companies, smell and body full of banana and cloves), this one is darker, a bit stronger, fuller body and different from them. It has an original note and deserves respect.

This may be the best Weizen in the world, as I said may be. As tasted in Germany in Nurnberg, it is cloudy and sweet very refreshing highly carbonated, and a great thirst quencher. The appearance is amazing as is the taste of citrus and slight bubble gum, very smooth and delicious.

Simply amazing, the best Weissbier ever! Not even comparable to the others and should be in a class of its own.

appearance; more of an amber colored Weissbier, not quite as dark as the Dunkel sorts of this style though. Nice with a very sticky head.

smell; about as perfect as a Weissbier can be, yeast is most dominant but that's what is to be expected from this style.

taste; impossible for a Weissbier to be any better! Very rich with every ingredient present at its highest quality.

mouthfeel; very complex with a creamy carbonation, almost with Belgian trappist ale like qualities.

drinkability; goes down smooth and leaves me begging for another.

I have tried nearly every Weissbier Bavaria has to offer and this one wins by far. I can't live without it! I recommend it with caution as you my become a slave to it after only one half liter!

Although it is labelled as a hefeweizen, it looks , smells and tastes like a dunkelweizen. A rich, fruity, caramel loaded, malty dark weizen that rivals any Bavarian version of the style. This is the gold standard of the dunkelweizen beer style.
