I'm going to start my review with a disclaimer--this is my favorite beer, period. If I had one last beer to drink before I went to the grand bier stube in the sky, it would be this one.
Appearance: When poured correctly, this beer looks magnificent in the glass. Topping off the head with the remainder of the bottle makes this beer a real treat. The color is a typical hefe yellow-gold and the cloudiness of the yeast masks the mystery of the taste inside. The thick head stays for a long time, so get used to drinking the beer through the head, you'll have to wipe your upper lip often.
Smell: The aroma is very welcoming, never bitter or skunky. A little fruity, but understated, not like a lambic or some of the other fruity beers.
Taste: As I stated earlier, this is the best bier in the world (my opinion). It is refreshing, fruity (not much), and very satisfying. No bitter after taste, leaves you refreshed and ready for more.
Mouthfeel: Again, no problems here.
Drinkability: The problem with this bier is that I can keep drinking it--over and over and over.

I've had this beer on tap and a bottle. When I get it in a bottle I always pour in a glass, I've found that leaving it in the bottle keeps the foamy head from receding. On tap well let's just say its great could drink from it all day, "can I get another one please."I was on my third one while my friend was on his first. It's a filling beer, so don't eat to much otherwise your belly will be paying dearly. I've drank other weisse's but none compare to this one. I prefer the Dark Weisse but its hard to find around here. The friends and family I've given to try say the same thing all the time. "It's smooth, tasty, sweet, heavy, but above all stronger than what they drink." Like I tell them "get drunk tonight not the next morning". All I need to do now to complete the experience is get a Weisse glass, it would put the cherry on top of this wonderful desert.

Price: slightly more than your regular imports, worth the extra dollars you pay for it

Availability: depending where you are its available from gas stations to bars, some grocery chains carry them, pricing can be fluctuate accordingly so I recommend to drink it with a couple buddies, if you feel the price is steep.

Taste: superb, you know your drinking great beer when alcohol is the smooth criminal in there, this beer does not need a garnish. Banana nut bread anyone?

After effects: As someone told me a great clean beer that you can wake up tomorrow morning feeling great.

Liquid bread. Absolutely delicious.
Also had it on tap. Also very good, but the 500 ml. bottles are the best. Must be served in a proper, what I call, a weiss beer glass, tall and tapered that can accommodate the full 500 mls. It is somewhat of a acquired taste, but once acquired, it's tough to beat. Already smacking my lips!

poured out a very thick foamy head and a cloudy lemon-ish orange color with darker hues swirling through out. took a while for the foaminess to settle down. Aroma was musty, fruity and I hate to say but smelled a bit like a wet dog. It had an slight apple and sour note and finished with a bready musty end. mouth feel was soft and chunky. It was an ok beer, but I felt one would do me just fine.

cheers

Poured from a bottle into my Ayinger Weizen glass.

Appearance: Very cloudy orange color with a nice head that slowly dissipates with lots of sticky lacing.

Smell: Banana, cloves, wheat, heaven.

Taste: You get it all: banana, wheat malt, cloves, slight lemon, a little pepper.

Feel: Lots of carbonation with a nice creamy mouthfeel that coats your mouth and sticks around for a while

Drinkability: This is so tasty and and easy to drink. I can drink a six pack before I know what has happened.

I could drink this beer all day. I have had it on tap, with a lemon wedge, and that is great, but mostly, I can only get it in a bottle.

The head is thick, and eventually desolves to a lace. The appearance is dark amber, and sort of cloudy.

The smell and taste have a light hint of citrus, and a spice that I can't peg, since I am new to describing beer taste.

I normally serve it in a tall weiss beer glass, at room temp. On a hot day, maybe cool it for awhile, and it really hits the spot.

Beautifully full bodied, aromatic, golden wheat, beautiful coloration, with a very satisfying full bodied, and full flavor, of just the right amount of balance between, not to sweet wheat, with a slight mild bit, not bitter, very slight, not to much of a fruity style flavor, with the unfiltered yeast adding to and making of the full body, with a medium weight making this Weiss a very satisfying to the pallet and excellent taste. Very aromatic to the scenes.

L - dark murky orange, big white head, lots of lacing
S -banana, sourdough, bubblegum
T - taste pretty much the same as smell. Sweet, grainy, really can taste the wheat / bread flavours popping out, but also huge banana and clove and bubblegum explosion. Also has a really distinct slightly sour /tart / funky taste that distinguishes it from any other wheat I have tried
F - feels very dense, carbonation is very moderate, probably the only drawback
O - Easily one of the best examples of the style. Highly recommended.

Awesome beer. Nice smell, great taste and goes down unbelievably well.
Pours a hazy golden color with a massive head that eventually settles down without much lacing. Smell is AMAZING - spices and bannana. The smell is nice but difficult to pick up, especially after the first sip. Taste is of bananas but that doesnt do it justice - just tastes awesome - kind of how a banana popsicle tastes way better than a banana.
Great mouthfeel, beer is super smooth with a nice aftertaste and the drinkability is through the roof.
Just a great allround beer.

World class wheat beer. One of the best I have ever had. Rich, sweet and very mild bitterness. Hazy pale gold in colour. Pours with a rich, thick head along with good glass retention and lacing. Love this stuff.

So stoked to finally have Hacker Pschorr available in Las Vegas! By far the best Weisse beer on the market. Great head on the pour. Strong sweet smell. Great cloudy unfiltered look. Taste is crisp and refreshing. Highly recommended to any hefe drinkers this is an original munich weisse beer.

This seemed a little heavy for the style but its not a bad beer by any means.Poured a deep hazy orange color with nice pillowey head,smell was very clovey and spicey with a slight fruitiness in the background.Nice clovey taste with a good amount of banana also coming thru,pretty tasty.A nice weisse but like I said it seemed a little heavy for the style,would rather have a Tucher or Paulaner if I wanted to have more than a couple.

Golden orange pour with a generous foamy head. The nose was light, fruity, citrus & floral but maybe only a small hint of banana. The taste was also very light and lacked body and complexity. Again citrus flavours with an almost lemon/tangy finish. Not what i might have expected from a hefe-weizen. However, this beer does serve a purpose as it is an adequate thirst quencher on a warm summers day. Decent but not outstanding by any stretch.

Appearance - This one came out a solid, almost bright orange in color with a good weizen head. The sediment from the bottle left brown drippings on top of the foam.

Smell - The yeast, banana, cherry, and clove are all pretty balanced here.

Taste - This is big for a weizen. All of the smells from the nose are present in the taste, but nothing really dominates.

The yeast is very bready, liked fully-baked bread. The fruits are a collection of banana, cherry, and lemon, although no sourness is present. The banana doesn't dominate like in a lot of weizens. The spicing is clove mostly but, again, not overpoweringly so.

Mouthfeel - This is a solid medium in the body, which is about as big as a weizen will get. The carbonation is effervescent and lightens the feel of the beer in the mouth.

Drinkability - This is a bit heavy-handed for a Hefe Weizen, but it certainly gets the job done.

Update - I first reviewed this beer in 2005 and thought I'd compare notes with a 2010 sampling. It is amazingly consistent and exactly as I remember it. I still think it's a bit heavy-handed for me as I appreciate the delicacy of a German Weizen but all of the components of the style are here and expertly done.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine July 2007.

This is one of the originals--an old-world wheat beer brewed with 60 percent wheat and 40 percent barley.

Served in a traditional wheat beer glass, the pour yields a towering head; the carbonation swirls while the foam slowly dissolves back into the liquid. Amazing head retention. Trademark Hefeweizen appearance: cloudy orange. Big fruity aroma of ripe bananas, soft clove and a waft of wheat. Smoothness is sublime as it rolls around the mouth with moderate body. Solid bread malt flavor with the wheat character obviously dominating, fruitiness coming big in the middle with ripe bananas and a hint of lemon. Very mild hop bitterness pushed down by a medium-sized spicy clove phenols that do most of the balancing. Neutral yeast flavor and lingering wheat appear in the dry finish.

First off, never put a slice of lemon in this beer--that would be committing He- fecide. If the beer supposed to have a lemon in it, don't you think the brewers would have taken care of that for us? Hacker-Pschorr Weisse may be lacking in complexity, but it makes up for that tenfold with drinkability, which is what we look for in He- feweizens. Pair it with an egg salad sandwich on rye bread with kosher dill pickles.
