Had this on an unusually warm April day at Cafe St.-Ex in the early evenning and it was perfect.

Appeared a cloudy, yellow-gold color with a white, bubble-laiden head that left behind some lacing. Moderate to high level of carbonation. Aromas of ripe bananas, cloves, and dried leaves. A very earthy taste that is complex in how the varying flavors of tropical fruit, cloves, and earth meld together. Crisp, refreshing, and dry with a nice level of sweetness, but bitter at the same time. Very enjoyable, but perhaps a bit too tart for me after a pint or two.

500ml bottle into a conical pint glass. Paid £2.90 for a single bottle.

Pours a cloudy, amber-brown coloured body, which turns to a dark golden yellow when held to the light and allows tons of visible streaming carbonation to be observed. A two-finger in height, fluffy, white head reduces quickly to a patchy film and thin collar, without leaving much lacing on the glass.

The nose is subtle overall; it leads primarily with a light amount of creamy malted wheat and white flour, along with some very faint clove notes in the background. Even after warming, the banana, bubble gum and fruity esters typical of the style remain absent. The taste follows the nose, upfront, slightly sweet, soft wheat leads, alongside a very mild citrus touch. Mid palate strong clove and light peppery characters build to provide a fair amount of spice, peaking with a bite towards the back end, before being joined by a hint of earthy hops in the finish. In the mouth sparkling carbonation and a medium body give a slightly prickly, but smooth and crisp feel. Spicy clove and alcohol give a touch of warmth, finishing quick, clean and dry on the palate.

Overall this is a pretty good beer. The soft wheat body isn’t quite robust enough to support the dominant clove and pepper phenols but it still remains a very drinkable and enjoyable beer. I’d certainly try it again, but given the choice, prefer the more complex and fruity Tap 7.

Had this on-tap at Blind Tiger in Manhattan where they have a good selection of beers both bottle and on tap. friendly and informative bartenders. Pours an amber shade. Very easy to drink. A lot of flavor but still very smooth. Good winter Hefeweizen, not too light!! Would recommend this.

Beautiful fluffy head covers a nice, hazy golden beer. Aroma of hay, taste of bread and hint of pineapple/grapefruit/banana. Not as good as the Tap 7, but definitely a head above the rest.

Light orange to amber in appearance with a big, foamy white head that eventually settles to a thin lacing.

Wheat and citrus to begin with, the is the usual hefeweizen banana and spice notes that follow this up and a touch of bubblegum as well. I could detect some background sweetness and fruity notes and yet more spice.

Spicy and bitter citrus with a strong banana and clove taste following this. There is some fruit, it hints at some grapefruit as well and there is a bitter (for a hefeweizen at least) finish.

Low to mild carbonation with this one and a bitter citrus palate that finishes quite wet and creamy whilst the beer has a medium body.

Very nice beer and slightly different to a lot of other hefeweizens in the fact that the flavours are a little more bitter and with more citrus than I expected but the beer itself was a good one.

Found this for sale at the beers of europe website for a good price.

Anyway, very good hefe appearance in the proper glassware, showing a radiant gold body under a billowing white head that leaves big globs of lace all the way to the bottom of the glass. Textbook. Standard aroma of banana and clove is as expected, though the taste falls short of my hopes a little. The banana and clove are at the forefront and ably supported by lightly tangy wheat. Decent balance between sweet and sour, with a lightly bitter crisp finish that curtails the aftertaste rapidly. Medium body with the billowing carbonation you expect for a hefe.

While this is a good variation on the original I'm not sure its any better.

Pours a bit deeper straw gold than most hefes, a bit hazy, with a large head that lasts a long time and leaves some lace. Nose is mildly estery, but is much more on the spicy clove side and not so much on the bubblegum/banana side. Flavor is rounded with a nice malt backbone, heavy clove, and some light fruit in the back. Overall, good but not as good as I was expecting.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of Feb 2012, so it's slightly out of date. ABV is stated as 5.2%. Picked up cheap from my local beer specialist. I'm a little confused about the difference between this and the original (Tap 7), but here goes.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A deeply translucent golden-amber with a ton of yeast. Yields a large fluffy head of white foam with decent retention; this eventually settles and dissipates. A rich, sweet aroma of bananas, cloves, marzipan, wheat malt and dry yeast esters. A subtle background fruitiness that is hard to place.

Tastes of wheat, with a bright, fruity character and a dry finish. Notes of bananas, cloves and earthy yeast. A hint of stewed hops and a faint staleness in the background. Mouthfeel is smooth and full-bodied, but dry and lacking in carbonation. Coats the palate. Rather astringent. Aftertaste of bananas, wheat malt and yeast esters.

Not bad, though perhaps not the best weissbier I've tried. All the expected flavours and aromas are abundantly present, but the dry background staleness detracts from the taste. The flat body doesn't help either - I was expecting a live beer to be more effervescent. Still, a solid brew with a nice character. Worth sampling.

Very nice appearance - a thick white head atop a light gold hazy body. Good retention. Light citrus notes and wheat dominate the smell, making it very refreshing. The taste adds even more to this, making it a perfect summer beer. Very light body, dry finish. Overall, this is a good example of the style, but I've had many different hefeweizen and I've had better!

A - Pours a cloudy golden orange, with a firm and creamy head. Plenty of streamers keep solidly in place.

S - A fairly light aroma of orange zest, lemon, yeast and a little clove.

T - The fruity ester start becomes yeasty and caramelly. Clove and restrained phenols appear at the end, leaving a clean and refreshing aftertaste with a slightly spicy alcohol edge.

M - Light bodied, with soft carbonation, which builds and becomes quite lively at the end.

D - Very drinkable. Looks good, has a delicate aroma and flavour, and is utterly refreshing. Very solid beer.

From Alcampo. In Bavaria glass. Reading CPPHTP10 Ch12. Pleasant to drink, with less body than usual in a hefeweizen. Lots of banana in its nose, which is great.
