look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: This beer poured an amazing cloudy orange. Left a brilliantly solid head, which lasted nearly the whole drink.

S: Smelled of a traditional wheat bier, very grainy, very rough, very bright. I feel the smell doesn't really showcase the taste that is about to come.

T: While most Weiss's are very strong and very harsh, this tended to provide that rough, fresh taste of grain that I was looking for, but finished smooth, and brilliant as a matter of fact.

M: This was a very full bodied bier for a weisse, which, was more than welcome. Left a buttery, and delicious flavor on the aftertaste.

D: While a decent drink, still not my favorite, but not horrible. As Weisse's go, so far one of my favorites.

Overall, I feel that this beer would be something that I could sit down, with a few rounds, and watch a soccer match, and just relax. Cheers.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours hazy light copper with large and dense off white head, sticky and dense patchy lacing. Aroma is cloves, fresh bread, some banana.

Taste is spicy wheat, followed by spicy and light sweet fruit, mostly banana and some citrus. The taste is quite complex, but on more on the milder side. Mouthfeel is smooth light-medium with moderate carbonation.

Simply excellent and one of my favourite Hefeweizens, I always buy a couple of these whenever I am in Germany.

Poured a cloudy orange/yellow with a very thin white head with no retention or lacing to speak of.

The smell was light and lemony with a touch of bubblegum.

The flavor is a bit lemony with a light slightly sweet banana yeast flavor with a mild wheat backbone.

The mouthfeel was light and slightly slick.

Easy enough to drink, a very light and mild hefe.

Poured into a weizen glass. Hazy yellowish gold with a thick, dense white head. Aroma is fresh bread, bananas, citrus and clove. Flavor is bananas and lighter citrus with a wheaty twang, vanilla, and clove. Mouthfeel is a little thinner than the best hefeweizens. Nice depth, easy to drink. Good beer.

A perennial favourite. 500ml bottle from the LCBO, poured into a weizenbier glass.

A very attractive opaque dark gold brew, leaves about an inch thick head that manages to hang on for most of the session.

Smell is wonderful: honey and butterscotch are dominant, followed by citrus, banana, spices and flowers.

The taste is what I've come to expect from a quality hefe: banana, malt, a bit of a bitter kick near the finish. Mouthfeel is medium thickness, good carbonation which leaves a gentle bite at the finish.

A first rate hefe, great for a session.

This brew has a nice deep, golden color with a strong head and good lacing. The head is also long lasting. In addition, the brew produces a steady stream of bubbles. In all, a pleasant looking beer.

The aroma is of cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg. I also detect biscuits and hops.

The flavor is typical for the style: yeast, malt, and hops. This beer is a delight to drink.

The beer feels good in the mouth. It has just the right amount of carbonation. Likewise, this beer has a high degree of drinkability.

In general, I don't like cloudy beers with yeast still in the bottle. So, when I was trying this one, my hopes weren't set too high. I was happily surprised.

Looks good... dark golden colour, cloudy, and with a tall head. The head sticks around fairly well, but left no lacing on my glass.

I actually liked the smell right away. Sort of a banana / butterscotch blend.

The taste... although it's out of my regular range, and is tough to compare to my favourites... I really like it. It has the notes I mentioned in the smell, plus a bit of citrus, a bit of spice/nut... it's quite nice!

There's nothing in the mouthfeel I can really fault. It's A-OK.

As for drinkability... the more I drink it, the more I like it. This is one nice beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a weizen glass.

A: The beer is a cloudy light gold color, with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of wheat, bananas, light malts, hints of lemon & spice and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts with bready flavors of wheat and a hearty malt character. Then some sweet and complementary flavors of bananas, spices and citrus come in. The hops presence is mild but on-target for the style and provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, mild kick, very good representation of style, this is beer has everything that you look for in a Hefeweizen and is a very good beer to drink for a long time.

poured into a pint glass, golden yellow in color and a little bit cloudy, with thick creamy foamy head. has a slight bitterness at first taste followed by nice smooth sweetness. It's hard for me describe why this is such a good beer, but it is. Until trying this beer I thought I didn't like Hefeweizen, I guess I just hadn't tried a good one. I will definitely be getting this beer again in the future.

Poured into a weizen glass from a 500 ml bottle.

A hazy golden yellow color that is darker at the wider top than the thinner bottom, as is expected. There's a thick, creamy and fluffy head that takes its time in dissipating, leaving a good amount of lacing. Smell is typical banana with cloves and quite a bit of yeastiness as well. Maybe a little too much. Not the most exceptional hefeweizen I've sniffed, but it's quite serviceable.

Taste is a bit on the sweetish side, with some slight hints of banana and a lot of maltiness. There's also some prevalent yeastiness that lingers throughout the sip. Not really any hoppiness of which to speak, nor was any expected. Definite bready quality as well which composes the chewy finish into the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is very, very creamy, which was a pleasant and welcome surprise. Felt great on the tongue coupled with the lightish body and carbonation. One of the nicest hefeweizens I've ever gotten to roll around in my mouth.

As with most hefes, this beer is pretty drinkable, given the low alcohol content, pleasing mouthfeel and nice taste. Quite refreshing and definitely worth a try. I'd definitely drink more of this if given the chance.

500ml bottle poured into a Weizen glass.

A - Poured a cloudy deep gold-orange color with a puffy 2" head which slowly dissipated. Very good lacing. Looks very appealing.

S - Bananas, sugar and fresh baked bread with a little spice & citrus in the background.

T - Malt sweetness, some citrus sourness, a bit of spiciness and a hint of hop bitterness. Good balance of flavors.

M - Smooth & creamy with tangy carbonation.

D - Very drinkable and quite satisfying.

One of my favorite Hefeweizens.

Tasted in Munich 09 ex 500mL swingtop

Pours a lovely cloudy orange with a strong rocky white head on top. Solid carbonation.

Fruity aroma with banana and some citrus note mixing with clove. Nothing special, but ticks all the boxes.

More fruit than spice on the palate but also has a strong clove finish. Good flavour, medium intenbsity for a hefe.

Mouthfeel is where this beer is at...creamy, high carbonation, full and tart. Balanced and pretty classy.

High drinkability. Cheap, cheerful and a pleasure. Went well with my Weisswurst at 11 in the morning! More please - and plenty of it when it is this fresh.

Tasted on September 3, 2009.

Nice head with a cream/cloud looks. The beer is copper color, a little dark and very hazy. The smell is yeast and banana. A belgium smell... :) On the taste side, I get some bubbles gum and banana... hehe funny. Medium body. Very refreshing just like a good Hefeweizen. A good beer. Drinkability is near excellent.

A: Cloudy orange body, with loads of bubbles and a creamy rich head. Some nice lacing as well as good head retention.

S: A pronounced wheat smell with fruity notes (banana, citrus). Some clove spiciness is present, but, overall, this is more of a fruity hefe-weizen.

T: A very balanced, sweet fruity taste, going into a wheaty bread-like finish. Plenty of banana and lemon notes. Over all, this tastes like a typical hefe-weizen, no more and no less.

M: Almost medium bodied. The carbonation is a bit high for it to be smooth. Over time, it drops, and yet this is a bit too effervescent.

D: Quite high. This is a very thirst-quenching and easy-drinking beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Poured into a 300 ml weizen glass. True to style, it poured a cloudy wheat color. There is moderate carbonation evident at the bottom. Two fingers of thick white head formed and dissipated slowly to a half finger cap.

Smell: Enticing sweet banana and cloves. There's also crisp lemon citrus and I caught a faint scent of strawberry. It also has a heavy yeast presence, making it very bread-like.

Taste: Much like the smell. Smooth banana sweetness is balanced well with clove spice. More bread and yeast, but no strawberry.

Drinkability: High quality drinking. My only regret is not getting the half liter bottles.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 500 ml. bottle into a weizen glass. Pours an attractive cloudy golden haze with an inch of white bristling head. Decent retention is offered, settling in to a full surface cap and lodging random lacing upon the glass.

Smell is classic for the style with wheat, light banana, yeast and clove. Enticing and legit with no off or artificial notes. Just a touch of sweetness exudes. Nose becomes cleaner as the carbonation lessens, offering more detail.

Slightly richer on the tongue than expected from the nose but otherwise follows suit. Banana, touch of cinnamon/nutmeg, and with a lingering light malt sweetness. Offers a moderately full body and well balanced carbonation. Finish is crisp and dry without being off-putting. Very drinkable.

A final swirl and dump lets the yeast overpower the pour. The sweetness is hidden now, smooth and comfortable. A nice Hefeweizen.

Poured from a 500mL bottle into my Ayinger weizen glass. Bottled on 1/09 (I think), making this 7 months old at the time of tasting.

Liquid is a mix of pear and tangerine yellow - though in some lights it approaches pale gold. Head is diminuative, but thick, creamy, ivory, with rich lacing, and good retention. Faint leg formation. A ring of yeast remained at the bottom of the bottle, which I was unable to dislodge...

Aromatics are subdued but pleasant - bringing to mind a rising loaf of home-made white/wheat bread. Faint hints of clove.

The flavors are fantastic and have nearly everything you might want from this style: clove, pepper, banana, bubble gum, wheat, light malt, lemon, a hint of hops - one of the most well rounded profiles I've yet to taste for this style.

Creaminess suggests a medium-bodied brew, but it is as quenching and disappears as fast as the lightest of beers.

One of the better weiss-beers I've had.

12oz bottle served in a weizen glass.

Cloudy orange/gold color with a huge white head that left lots of lacing behind.
Typical good wheat beer aromas, heavy dose of wheat malt and spices.
Taste is amongst the best of them, some citrus some spices and tons of malty goodness.
Medium bodied, crisp and refreshing.
I'll have another, thank you!

Hacker-Pschorr on tap cannot be beat. If you go to a tavern where Hacker-Pschorr is on tap, DO NOT PASS IT UP !!! The color is superb, the smell goes great along with the lemon wedge, tastes wonderful, by the time the glass falls to the bar; it's time to say, "bartender; another Hacker-Pschorr Hefe Weissen !!!
This is truly the "Nectar of the Gods".

This is a nice wheat beer that surely has an enticing aroma. It pours a nice cloudy golden slightly orange color with a nice white creamy head, some retention, no lacing. The nose is very nice, very soft clove, slightly floral, some bubblegum type aromas as well.

The taste is very refreshing, not too complex. The beer has a typical wheat prickliness to it in the mouth, but the beer is quite smooth for the style. There are some clove spices, some florals, some sweet malts as well in the beer. This is an easy beer to drink. It is fairly sweet but there enough spice in the finish to simulate some dryness that adds character and balance to the beer. There is also a touch of lemony tang in the finish, more so as the beer settles in.

Pours a hazy, fairly dark golden color with a voluminous off-white head that sticks around forever and leaves nice rings of lace on the glass.

The nose is somewhat sweet with a nice balance of banana and clove aromas. Not much wheat and just a little bit of bubble gum in there. Smells soft and inviting, a delectable hefe aroma.

The wheat is a bit more assertive in the flavor as is a touch of bitterness on the finish. Fairly mellow banana and clove, with the high carbonation scrubbing some of the yeasty esters away. Very easy to drink and is a damn fine hefe. I will buy this again, for sure.

Great beer. In my opinion this is quite possibly the perfect German Wiesse beer. Thick, favorful and delicious. This is a beer that could double for a very mildly sweet bread, but with enough perfect carbonation to cut through greasy meals. I love it with lemon and without.
