I'm a little bit disappointed with the colour of this beer. It reminds me more of waste water with a foamy head than beer. Not what I would call appetizing. However, it does smell nicer than it looks, with a floral bouquet that well-prepares you for the taste. It's actually quite refreshing despite its looks and is quite dry. Overall, I'd only say this is average because its looks take it down quite a few notches IMHO.

The giant 1L stein is a somewhat amber color. Small white head on top, but that might have to do with the pout. They wanted more beer than head.

More balanced than I was expecting. Bubble gum, banana, and clove are there, and not one dominates or takes over. different, but nice. None of those flavors really come out too much, the overall levels are lower than that of Weihenstephaner or Ayinger.

Its a bit darker, which means a touch more caramel flavor, and yes. Its there. The normal Yeast esters take a backseat to the Dunkelweisse feeling. I would almost categorize this as as a Dunkelweisse.

Pours an unusual hazy copper-orange with a big, fluffy slightly off-white head. Much darker pour than most hefes. Big time clove aroma. Clove, white pepper, wheat and tiny banana notes. Taste begins with some light clove and spicy yeast notes which quickly transforms into a smooth, sweet, sticky wheat beer. Sweet bready caramel malts and lingering wheat flavors. A quick rush of tingling lemon and banana at the very end finish this one out. Not as light and crisp as I have come to expect from the German crafted Hefes, this one almost tastes more like a Dunkel.

500 ml bottle into weizen glass, bottled 4/26/2011. Pours hazy golden orange color with a nice 2-3 finger fairly dense off white head with great retention that reduces to a thic cap that lingers. Some decent lacing on the glass, with plenty of carbonation streaming up. Aromas of big banana, clove, citrus, pepper, bubblegum, bready wheat, and yeast spices. Nice and well balanced aromas, with good complexity. Taste of big banana, clove, pepper, citrus, bubblegum, wheat, and yeast spices. Lingering notes of citrus, banana, pepper, and clove on the finish for a bit. Nice balance of flavors. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a fairly creamy and slightly slick mouthfeel. Very smooth and drinkable, with no alcohol presence noticed at all as expected. Overall this is an excellent and drinkable hefeweizen. Nice complexity and great balance.

Poured into weizen glass
A: cloudy copper color with a big foamy beige head, fizzes down to about a cm of a creamier head.

S: very strong banana, hints of spice, drier bready yeast aroma.

T: bananas, spice (clove, coriander), apples. Some toasted grain and grassy hop.

M: high fizzy carbonation leading to a foamy/creamy mouthfeel. Drying hop bite in the finish. Very refreshing.

O: surprisingly dark and smooth for their "original" hefeweizen. As expected from Bayern, a delicious beer.

A-Pours a hazy liquid caramel color. Head is massive and has staying-power. Leaves random lacing patches. Nice looking brew.

S-Quite yeasty. Bread, banana, clove of course. Nice hop aroma which is surprising and attractive.

T-Sweet, and fruity. Like banana yogurt. Spicy with plenty of yeast. Finishes like moist banana bread. Hops are not as prevalent as in the nose. A bit more kick than other Hefeweizens I have sipped. I enjoy the 'rough around the edges' take on the style.

M-Lighter bodied with ample amounts of carbonation. Nice feel. Very smooth and creamy.

O/D-A pretty good Hefeweizen. I enjoyed this one. This isn't my most loved style but this one is nice. Nice little bottle for $3.99. No complaints.

A: Pours a slightly hazy mahogany with a two finger tall fomay off white to beige head. The head reduces to a thin layer of bubbles that cover the entire surface of the beer fairly quickly. Moderate lacing is observed.

S: Aromas are of wheaty malts, banana, and cloves.

T: Flavors are predominantly banana and clove followed by some hints of coriander and lemon.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation and slightly dry in the finish.

O: Awesome - a very easy drinking beer that is quite delicious and sessionable. Reminds me of the numerous visits I have made to the greater Munich area, enjoying these in the beer gardens in the late spring, summer, and early fall. Classic example for this style.

500ml bottle poured into a weizen glass by freshness date.

Hazy mahogany color, thick off-white fluffy head with good retention, it gradually dissipates to thin foamy layer covering on top with some lacing patches. Carbonation is high and fizzy.

Mellow big ripe banana, bubblegum, fruity ester, bready malt like banana bread, clove spice, all blends nicely.

Banana kick off, malty sweet comes following along with citrus zest and some spice. Hop is there with vague bitterness. Tartness is at the end.

The body is moderate, smooth mouthfeel with pretty good crisp and carbonation.

Still okay but I personally would rather prefer Tap1 or Tap4.

S- Banana, cloves, coriander, slight cinnamon and apple and grape skins.

T- Banana and cloves, coriander with a touch of lemon and grass.

M- Light bodied, refreshing with heavy carbonation prickling the tongue.

O- Just awesome, there isn't much else to say.
