Ours to a very full white head with fine bubbles. Headforms a characteristic lace to the bottom of the glass. Aroma is somewlat more pronounced than the average for the style with a fruity and spicey note. The brew itself is quite pale and cloudy to the eye. The aroma carries on through the taste with fruit and spice coming through, maybe a bit of clove. Body is a little thin but the finish is very refreshing.

A: Ruddy brown, which is strange to me. Agree with other posters, this is much darker than hefeweizens I'm used to. Massive frothy white head, but it quickly dissipates

S: Classic hefe aromas of banana, clove, pear.

T/M: Wheaty and malty; Aromas of banana and clove come through as well; medium bodied and palate cleansing

D: Very drinkable. Refreshing, low abv.

A good, solid Hefeweizen.

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.

To me this is what a german Hefe is all about. The spicy clove like flavor and aroma. The fruity / banana thing going on. Good wheatyness and sour ending make this one fine weizen. Some may say that the phenols and the esters are too much but not this reviewer. If you don't like the spicyness move to a Frazikaner or an Oberdorfer.

Hefe-Weizen. This beer has all the typical characteristics of such a beer, so if you like the style, you'll like this. Low in calories and fizzy with a 5.4% alcohol level. Goes great with food

Cheers

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!

The weather's turned unseasonably warm this past week or so and I'm knocking off work at around 3pm these days when the weather's still a bit sweaty, and for my part, I've been craving wheat beers. This one, I've never really noticed before. Let's have at it.

Pours a gorgeous cloudy orange with 2 blondish fingers of head. On the nose, banana bread and a smidge of white wine. Not exactly jumping out of the glass at me, though.

Typical banana weizen flavors meet with sweetish bread, cloves and a vague hint of other spices. Bubblegum flavor is present too, especially in the finish, along with a sourish wheaty/white-wine twang. Ghostly hints of other fruits by and by (apples, pears).

Big time, champagne-like carbonation makes the mouthfeel seem creamier than it is. Refreshing.

I like this better than regular Schneider-Weisse by quite a bit, but I can't really put a finger on why... slightly more depth, maybe? I can imagine drinking this alongside almost any foodstuff and it being extremely pleasant at the least, if not a magic match. Addictive - I'm not even finished this one and I want another. Good stuff.

Review according to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15A). AROMA: moderate wheat aroma with no phenols and no esters. no hop aroma. APPEARANCE: pale straw color with a long-lasting white head. a bit haizy. TASTE: soft wheat flavour with very low hop flavour. mild citric flavour present. Absent or very low esters and phenols. PALATE: medium-light body with a light fizzy finish. OVERALL: a nice weizen but without esters and phenols.

A cloudy light amber tone topped by a thick dense crisp white head. A very malty smell. Just what you should expect from a German Hefe. The taste doesn't let down either. A good strong malt presence followed by a crisp clean taste of water. Feels a little off, maybe too bubbly. Over all a very good Hefeweizen.
