Pours amber with a finger width white head. Smells very malty. Tastes like banana bread. Mouthfeel is medium due to the bread feel. Overall, one of the best beers I've had that's not a stout.

When I found this beer I knew this was the go to beer for me. I like the way it feels on my tongue as I drink it. I call it mouth feel. I can't buy it where we live so stock up when we go to Chicago.

Poured into weizen glass. Small head, but a nice patch of lace. Standard wheat beer color.

Nose of wheat and faint banana.

Similar bready wheat taste, with a few spice notes and malt.

Crisp, refreshing finish.

A good hefe, on par with varieties by Scheider & Sohn, and Weihenstaphaner, among others.

Pretty good hefe. Not quite on par w Paulaner or Weinstephaner but still a good choice. Not as much banana or clove as the two referenced hefes but more apple flavor comes through.

I'll stick w Paulener.

Amber with clean, crisp white head. Smells of wheat, sourdough, and faintly of banana. Tastes of bread crust, with a slight tang of pineapple and cucumber. It's refreshing (the carbonation hits nice), but a little weak in body. Still, an all around solid brew.

Feel...like I could put away some of this! Smooth...not overpowering in any one thing...put together very nicely...highly recommend for your Weiss beer experience.

Pours a amber gold with very nice foam and lacing. Smells of fruit, wheat, bread, and some floral notes. Taste is very nice, bursting with fruity wheat flavors and nice flavors of bread, banannas, and some toasty notes. Good mix of floral flavors also. Finish is very neat and refreshing, little hit if orange and wheat on finish, exceptional beer.

Hacker-Pschorr has been brewing beer since 1417 and after tasting this golden gift, I can see why.

My bottle only says "Weisse" and has the flip top.

Golden yellow cloudy colour with a thick creamy head. Refreshing, with citrus notes and a somewhat tangy acidity. I smell lemon, banana and perhaps nutmeg? Carbonation is strong on the first sip but lightens up rather quickly.

I'm regretting only buying one 500 ML bottle.

Very nice in my top 5 for hefeweizen slightly darker (almost copper) then others. I'd like more fruit esters but this still have a banana like flavor with a nice spice box- clove, nutmeg. Also like how the grains come out but finishes very clean with a lemon like finish. Best on a hot day. Definitely better cool but not ice cold.

This hefe pours an orange color with a medium foamy white head. The smell is malty with a very faint scent of banana. The body is actually heavier than the typical hefe being pretty medium overall. It’s pretty malty with typical hefeweizen malts, but I also strangely think I detect a slight malt flavor that is more common to pilsners in the background. There is also the typical banana and some lemon / orange flavor as well with some clove spiciness, but they’re all pretty subdued. It’s interesting because the initial flavor is a little dry, but then the finish is crisp, but quite refreshing. Nice summer beer, but definitely not exactly typical of what I’ve come to expect from hefes. Don’t’ get me wrong, I definitely like this beer, but some of the top more traditional German hefes I’ve liked a little better.

Amber orange color with a huge thick off-white head with eternal retention.
Aroma with notes of banana, mild clove, a bit of orange marmalade and bread.
Flavor with notes of oranges, diverse phenols not focused in cloves, banana, bubblegum, wheaty bread and lemon drops. Dry aftertaste with a low bitterness.
Medium body with good carbonation. Somewhat creamy.
Pleasant and flavorful Phenolic Hefeweiss balancing banana and oranges. Above average for the style. Worth trying.

Pours a bright pale orange. Lacing is excellent. Taste is wheat with hints of orange and lemon. Probably my favorite type of beer. Love it with oranges and in the summer. Hints of spice, lemon, lime. A very good beer from a very old brewery.

Looks really good, bright yellow, lots of haze, full inch of head. Aroma gives you all that belgian spice rack, banana, cloves and whatnot.

Taste is more of the aroma. Somehow seems to always taste half a grade better in the sun. There's plenty of banana and clove on this one. Always consistent, you know what you're getting into here.

Hefe Weisse pours a hazy darker copper color, with a small but never quitting lacing head. Nice banana aromas with hints of sweet cloves. Taste is very creamy, hints of banana and clove. Rich body, good fell. Overall a very creamy and suburb hefeweizen.

From 10/31/15

Pours a hazy burnt orange color with one finger of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident. Fruity malts, bananas, cloves, spices, dough, and bready malts. Medium body and high carbonation.

Overall I was a bit surprised to see such a high score on BA for this one....while the nose is very good, I found the taste very light and with much less flavor, and found it a bit too carbonated. Not a bad beer but a lot of better hefeweizens out there to grab off the shelf.

11.2oz bottle
A - opaque apricot colored ale with a tall ivory head that holds good retention
S - nice aroma of banana, clove, wheat, spicy hops, yeast, mild citrus and bubblegum
T - well balanced traditional hefe flavors of wheat, clove, banana, bubblegum, yeast, earthy & spicy hops, faint lemon and nuttiness
M - fuller body yet refreshing, finishes dry and fairly crisp
O - one of the better German Hefeweizens in the world. A classic.

Very cloudy yellow orange body, puffy white head that leaves an appreciable haze on top. Banana hits the nose, with some bread and a touch of metal behind it. Taste is similar, only a bit of clove, a good amount of spicy funky yeast at the back palate. Dry. Retro-olfaction brings up unpleasant wet grain. Medium body, weak carbonation but somehow makes me burp prodigiously.
Very good hefeweiss, the ample yeast and stark dryness are distinguishing touches, but the aroma and taste each had their own not-insignificant flaws.

A: it's a murky burn caramel color that gets light towards the bottom of the glass. Pours a 2 finger solid white head, but that fades quickly a thin film on top

S: bubblegum, clove, wheat, light toffee, slightly grainy

T: taste is a bit more subdued than the nose. Nice wheaty presence up front followed by a mild clove flavor and ripe banana. Behind that is a sweet malt note and light lemongrass with some black pepper

M: medium, with a bit lower carbonation than I'm used to from a hefe (not bad though)

O: it's average. It's a bit more mellow than some of it's peers (in the banana and clove department), but it's easy to drink and there is not 1 off putting flavor in here. Worth a buy

Hacker-Pschorr Weisse has a thick, foamy, off-white head, a highly charged, bubbly, turbid, orange-gold appearance, tan chunks, and splotchy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of low-level banana, bubble gum, and coriander notes, bread, and some sort of bright fruit. Taste is of those elements, with low bitterness, and a spiced bread presentation. Mouthfeel is rather heavy, and Hacker-Pschorr Weisse finishes semi-dry and easily drinkable.

Pours a translucent orange with a thick foamy head with great retention. The nose is bready, with banana and clove surrounded by yeast. There is a slight yeastiness to the flavour, mixed with some banana, lemon and pale malts. The body runs about a step above medium. A tasty little Hefeweizen.

Bottle. Pours a hazy, turbid, murky orange color. Thick, off-white cap. Aroma is quite wheaty and yeasty. Banana and clove and bread. Pleasant. Flavor starts with a sweet breads flavor and also has a good banana yeast injection. Finishes sweeter but with a slightly drying clove flavor. Well made. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Definitely a good Hefe.

Tons of head, a hazy golden appearance, and a nice wheaty and citrusy aroma. The flavor disappoints a little, and isn't as potent as the aroma would suggest.

500 mL bottle. Orange-amber color and cloudy with a tall fluffy head. Spot on for a hefeweizen. Mild banana and clove in the aroma. The flavor pops with tons of fruit and the clove takes a backseat. A little more full bodied that some of its German counterparts, but easy to drink nonetheless. While it might be a notch below some of my favorites for the style (Ayinger, Andechs, Weihenstephaner), it's still a winner if you're looking for an authentic German hefeweizen.

Too much has been written about this beer and I realize my propensity to pontificate is palpable (just read any of my previous reviews and this will be evident,
alliteration aside). 11.2 oz. bottle was stayed poured into an English pint glass. Leaving the last bit of beer at the bottom of the bottle, I agitated softly until the remaining sediment was in suspension, then poured into the glass. The result, producing two and one half fingers of brilliant, wispy white, little snow head that dissipated extremely slowly to a medium thin line that remained until the glass was empty. Nice lacing despite the low surface tension characteristic of the inappropriate glass and the softened water used to clean it. On the medium-light side of honey gold, translucent through the cloudy but uniform din of appearance, perfection. bringing this to the nose produces a fruit forward banana, canned pears, faint clove- spice flavor. This mirrored smell with the fruit forward banana flavor asserting it's self with a pear and very slight metallic report right at the end..hence canned pears (I'm thinking a bi-product of the yeast which was not at all offensive). Well balanced, on the luxurious-creamy side of medium N I R V A N A. Absolutely delicious.
