Pours a massiv, dense, creamy head with a lovely, hazy peach color.

The aromas yield spiced banana big times, along with cinnamon and clove, as well as bready malts. Banana is rich on the nose, together with marzipan and bread, all flavors chime in with the fruit.

Drinks enormously smooth, with bready soft malts and a silky yeastiness, providing the most complex, well integrated banana flavor I have yet experienced in a beer. Not only comes the banana incredibly smooth to the palate, due to the soft yeast pillow, it also got a fantastic complexity to it, provided by honey and cloves. Even in the finish, the fruit is still recognizable, acvompanied by a mellow grain flavor, blending outstandingly well into the beers malt foundation. Has a perfectly fitting carbonation, not too high, leaving enough space for the more fragile flavors to shine through, with a light, versatile body, very refreshing.

This beer represents the definition of a bavarian style hefe weizen-no doubt. Comes in a classic Euro bottle 0,5l and has a precious banderole (blue/White colours) saying "Gutmann: gutes Bier.." yeah thats cool. Premium. Poured into a wheat beer glass (Stephani) the beer looks pastel-orange. Fluffy head. Looks like cloudy and all natural apple juice! Aromas of fruits, banana and also spicy nutmeg. Very fizzy and refreshing, nice yeasty taste. Grainy and so soft, not that much carbonation what makes this Hefeweissbier so quaffable.

From the bottle, it pours a hazy (it is a hefe or yeast beer, after all) amber color with a pleasantly large white head. Nose detects lovely banana scents with some bread. Taste follows nose, with bready flavor with banana notes. Enjoyable!

I was assured that this was a somewhat popular brand with some of the locals in Bavaria. It was a cloudy deep yellow almost orange body with plenty of carbonation. The barmaid ensured a perfect pour from the bottle. The almost beige head was frothy and perfect. There were some spice and yeast characters to the aroma. The flavor was well balanced. Clove some banana and citrus. It had a full body for this style.

A: A cloudy grey-straw body with a cumulonimbus cloud of a white head.
S: Banana chews and a touch of vinegary yeast.
T: Loads of banana and very peppy indeed. Too much of a corn chips effect though, and infact the aftertaste reminds me of Monster Munch – disappears as it warms though.
M: Typical soft Weizen effervescence.
O: An average but full-flavoured example of the style, which is one of my favourite styles.

This is a popular beer in Berlin, nearly every drink store has it in stock.

It is hazy golden in appearance with a small but creamy head. A little lacing residue.

Strong banana & clove fragrance with a tid of floral aroma coming from the hops

The esters come out in the taste with a touch of banana. The wheat backs it all up bringing the yeast into balance. Slightly sweeter than the competition.

Good mouthfeel. Full body.

Drinkability is fine.

Pretty good beer overall.

500ml bottle, purchased at a local beershop

A- Almost golden with some orange hints, much less cloudy than the vast majority of hefeweizens. Medium and perfectly white creamy head, good retention

S- Weak to be honest. Yeast and maybe a hint of clove

T- Not the standard hefeweizen for sure. The wheat malts are hardly perceptible and hence the beer has a very light feel, but not an empty light feel: there's banana, some clove and a suprising but fine fruity (apple, maybe cherry) taste. Hops are gentle but bring a fresh feel to the flavours

M- A light body. Still, an awesomely fresh feel, perfect carbonation to give life without being overpowering and as smooth as you could ask

D- Awesome drinkability, maybe the freshest feel i ever found in a beer. One of the top examples of the high drinkability that you can trust to find in bavarian beers

If i had it on a blind tasting i would for sure have said that this is a Kristalweizen, but appareantly this is not filtered. A suprising but very good hefeweizen

From 2012: A lighter bodied hefeweizen, poured into hefe glass. Hazy golden color with creamy, fluffy head, light in the mouth, without tasting or feeling watery.Nice pleasant sweetness along with the usual hefe flavors. A well done weizen from Gutmann.

500ml Bottle from Beers of Europe (£2.29):
Light body before settling slightly darker as a medium, golden amber colour with a cloudy body and a large, two-fingers sized head that is very thick looking and stays well as a creamy white colour.

Banana & citrus with some orange peel and coriander thrown in initially.Very lively on the nose with some yeast coming through along with some spice and cloves. There is some wheat, a touch of bubblegum and a little bit of bread.

Banana with some spice before quickly being followed by some bubblegum and citrus flavours. There was some clove and orange peel too and a little wheat and yeast to see things out with.

Smooth with a light medium body with strong carbonation and a light, easy to drink feel to the beer. The mouthfeel seemed a little thin and watered down in places but from the most part it came across okay. Fruity and quite sweet & refreshing.

An enjoyable hefeweizen and my first new one in a few months. Not one I knew much about going in but as always Bavaria comes out on top when it comes to hefeweizens. A pretty good offering & well worth a try.

Hmm, I disagree with the person below me that this beer can be found in nearly every drink shop in Berlin. I wish! It's definitely findable, but I can only think of a few places that have it in my neighborhood.

A: Almost perfect. Maybe I should really give it a 5. Beautiful radiant orangy yellow color with an even head. Very very cloudy. So much so that you can barely see the carbonation in action.

S: A bit complicated. Smoke, sandy banana yeast, and the alcohol in the background.

T: Not one of the sweeter Hefeweizens. Quite neutral in flavor with some bitterness. The back end is nice and creamy. On the heavy side.

M: Very smooth, with a particular, somewhat mellow sting.

D: Heavy, but nice.
