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.

Poured from bottle into tulip glass. Pours honey yellow color and a white head that sizzle and goes away fairly quickly. A bit light in the aroma for me, there is just not much there. Malty, soury base with hints of grape, apple, bread and yeast. Medium body with high level of carbonation throughout. A nice hefe treat!

This beer pours a slightly golden straw color with a billowing head of 12 fingers initially wtih the aggressive pour that falls to a 3 finger head and finally a quarter inch over the beer before drinking. The nose is nice, with a moderate banana and clove character. Some slight graineyness and wheatyness is present as well. The flavor is lacking a little in my opinion. I would like a more forceful banana. The flavor is just slightly weak overall. The feel is the same. The thickness I expect is not there. No creamyness is found. Just an overall lack of body. The brew is smooth and drinkable. I would still like to see more flavor and body. Just an okay hefe.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a Schneider-Weisse weizen glass. Deducted half a point from the appearance for the pain in the arse head.

Pours a cloudy yellow/gold colour with a massive head.

Smells fresh, yeasty and malty.

Tastes of very light malts, balanced with delicate hops giving a slight lemony zing to it, creating possibly the most refreshing drink i've ever had. The mouthfeel adds to this, it's thinner than many hefeweizens but works well with the lighter taste.

An absolutely perfect (for me) hefeweizen.

Served cold in a pint glass. It pours a deep golden yellow color with just a slight bit of haze. The soft white head settles quickly leaving a thin layer on top.

Aroma is evident even from a distance which is impressive considering it's a wheat beer and because I generally have a weak sense of smell. It has a very nice characteristic German wheat beer aroma of sweet banana and mild spice.

Flavor is very pleasant with banana, pink bubble gum, and green pear. The spice from the hops is very mild but it's just enough to balance out the sweetness from the malted wheat.

Mouthfeel is light in body with ample carbonation. Without the bubbles it would be quite thin. Drinkability is great, as with most good wheat beers.

Overall it's a very pleasant beer but it falls short of the greatness that is Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier.

Nice hefeweizen. It has almost a gold colour and it definitely doesn't have only wheat in it. The esters are nicely present with some clove. The mouthfeel is quite smooth

A - Clouded orangish gold color, a bit more amber/brown than other more yellow/golden Hefeweizens. Large, thick, creamy white head. Very good retention.

S - Normal Hefeweizen smells. Good amount of grain/wheat. Some clove and a bit of banana. Some other faint fruity smells.

T - Typical Hefe flavors. Good malted wheat base. Healthy amount of clove (more than other Hefes). Also probably slightly more banana and other fruit flavors than other Hefes. Lots of citrus, orange being most prominent and some lemon. Finishes with good amount of medicinal and some alcohol flavors.

M - Medium body with good carbonation. Creamy and smooth.

D - Really nice drinkability. Goes down smooth and easy. Full feel in the mouth with flavors that don't kill the palate, but make me come back for more.

Notes: ABV = 5.2. Nice Hefe that as a bit more of a spice/medicinal/alcohol kick than others. Also a bit more fruit flavors. Quite enjoyable, and perfect for summer or just an easy to drink beer.

A very tasty wheat beer, lots of banana, and hints of citrus, a very tasty way to quench your thirst. Can have some heavy sediment sometimes, but its great stuff.

A murky, orange, golden beer with an everlasting head which is very mousse-y and creates a nice cookshat.

Smell is full of banana and clove and the ussual spiciness which is creates by the yeast. Some grainy wheat smell.

Taste is spicy with clove, without showing a lot of the ripe banana flavors. The wheat gives the beer it's ussual grainy smell, which always appear 'not fresh' to me. A rather thin body which fits the style. This beer isn't really much different from other weizens I had. A solid beer.

Tall and slender brown half liter bottle with a fairly distinctive white, blue and gold label featuring the image of either Schneider or his sone and a German baroque building below the name and seal of the brewery. Purity law applies. Best before 2/22/04, I didn't get around to opening it until 3/20/04. Me bad.

Pours a cloudy yellow, not noticeably darker than other Hefeweizens. The head is 1.5 fingers thick, white, and full of body. It lingers for a while, but not as long as I expect from a top notch German wheat. No lace. The nose is spicey and fruity, but really no better than average. The mouth is pretty light and very prickly - again, quite average. The flavor is good but mild spice and fruity tartness. There are no hops, but that is also average. The aftertaste is mild fruitiness. I know I'm bucking the trend here (and that my sample was beyond it's "best before" date), but I find nothing above average about this beer at all.

From Leura. Oops!!!! BB 301306 :-(

A - golden blonde, less head than should be, no lace.

S - massive bananas, hint bubblegum. Clove, spice.

T - fair whack (technical term) of banana, add cloves, yeast, and aged semillon notes. Quite vinous, more so than expected. Almost some barrel notes as well.

M - let down - just bubbles in mouth really, fizzy.

O - Maybe an unfair review given it's out-of-date but still very drinkable. If only Australian brewers could do the same. Pales against Weihenstephan tho, especially in mouthfeel.

.5L into weizen glass

Pours a deep orange, almost brown hue. Perfectly couldy. Thick 2 inch eggshell white head with good retention. The head settles to a foamy cap. Moderate lacing.

Deep earthy yeast notes. Fruity banana aromas swirl throughout. After a swirl of the head, large amounts of creaminess show themselves. Light bready malt in the background to complement the fruit like aromas.

Medium bodied with zesty carbonation. Slightly dry finish, but still smooth at the same time.

Good well rounded hefe-weizen. Full of flavor and easy drinking.

Honey biscuit like malty flavors start out, then shifts to sharp fruit flavors. Minimal hop bitterness in the back of the mouth, just enough to oppose the malt.

pours out a very dark, somewhat clouded, copperish color with a very generous pillowy head that sticks. the addition of the ample yeast sediment turns it a murky swamp brown. but fear not, while without the yeast it is a tasty and refreshing wheat beer...the adding of the yeast multiplies the flavors and complexities in the nose and tongue. it smooths out the full mouthfeel, and provides a unique spicy aspect above and beyond the token clove and banana and other faint fruit flavors. smoke, wood, tobacco, and nutmeg are ones that come to mind. i could sit here all day and night admiring this brew. very nice!
