A lush fountain of chewy orange, hop dust and Parma ham flavor. Floral and earthy. Fruity and dry. Bright and deep. Solid and airy. This is the point of reference for Hefeweizen. Bitter sweet spices decorate sunny liquid sunshine.

Cloudy golden beer with a touch of yellow. It had a sticky white head about 1/2 in thick. Wonderful wheat, banana, clove aromas.

The beer tasted not too sweet, like wheat, crackers, and alcohol.. A few seconds after the beer left my mouth I was thinking "starfruit". Maybe a little. Hops were there along with some astringency for balance. A little too carbonated, in my opinion.

Overall, not a good as the Hacker-Pschorr Weisse Dark.

Cloudy yellow color with a thick head and citric (pineapple) aroma. I find German Wheat beers to be a little on the sweet side for my tastes. I found this to be very similar to Paulaner.

This is a superior product from a first class outfit. It boasts a good look and an even better aroma; some say banana others say fruity; realistically both. The taste is outstanding almost smoky. Definitely not an overly effervescent body so the beer itself is very palatable, very smooth. Candy for the taste buds. To not have this one as a regular guest at your better nights is, by virtue, not having a better night at all.

Pours with a towering white frothy head over (of course) yeastily cloudy light amber liquid. Nose is bubblegummy, with notes of banana, clove & yeast...very appetizing. Taste is fruity and light with more banana taste with some astringency being felt on the palate. Finishes lively and crisp..lip smacking good! A very well made Weissbier!

pours a amber-golden colour, with a thick and lasting head. The smell has a nice spicyness to it, as does the taste, which also includes some good estery touches. Feels nice going down and causes no trouble.
an excellent example of a hefe weisse, mounting a strong challenge to Schneider, my current favourite.

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

Deep orange-copper color with a solid white head that holds. There's a nice thick lace above the collar that gives the appearance of a mountainous horizon - but nothing above it. The foam across the surface thins but holds throughout the glass. The aroma has a dominant banana note with some grainy malt and clove. The body is light, giving a thinnish - but creamy - mouthfeel. The aroma offers far more banana that the flavor, which is more clovey. There's a light grainy maltiness up front, followed by a gentle tanginess, some clove, a light hop flavor, more spicy clove and a dry refreshing finish with a final swirl of light banana and then a residual hoppiness. This beer is unique in that it has more bitterness than most, with some light hop flavor, and an emphasis on spicy clove.

Traditional cloudy yellow color to light golden color. Fluffy white head, hung over the edge of the glass. A perfect looking hefe-weiss. Nice balanced clove, bananas, and citrus smells. Taste was also exceptional. Noticable bananas, clove, but not overpowering, slightly tangy middle, and super crisp clean finish.Really balanced tasty combination of yeasty wheat flavors. Medium bodied, slightly heavier than other hefe's. A very good hefe-weiss. For the mass produced big german breweries, this one is the best. Very refreshing and perfectly balanced.

Not really impressed with this brew. It was not what I expected in a wheat beer. Short finish in the taste and not an over powering beer overall. I just think it's an average weise.
On second tasting I up graded it to 4, across the board. Must have been a bad day first time!

I enjoyed this weissbier from start to finish. Poured a golden orange with remarkably long-lasting effervescence, which made for a persistent head as well. Aroma (though muted) and taste were both "soft" with the crispness one expects from a wheat beer and a surprisingly complexity of fruit and clove tastes with each drink. Nice mouthfeel and typical wheat beer drinkability. This one was (and is) a great choice for a hot summer day.

This beer poured a cloudy light tan color with some carbonation present. This helped to create a white, very foamy head that looked like a float when it subsided and left some lace. The aroma was of hops and some citrus and clove. The flavor was of hops, lemon-citrus with wheat. The finish was tangy, almost sour. A good beer, though I still prefer some others more than this one.

cloudy whitish pour from the pint. A substantial sized head will hang around your tall weisse glass for some time. Loads of yeast and citrus jump out of the glass.

Flavor is loaded with lemon and yeast. It is very crisp and refreshing. I have had quite a few of these gems, and I have learned that adding lemon is not the thing to do. It will kill the flavor that you want. This is my favorite weiss.

Pours with a thick rocky slightly tan (off white) head. Lots of tiny bubbles. Cloudy and gold in color. Wheaty nose but not much. Very sweet taste with a sour finish. Distinct malted wheat taste really sticks out.. Very carbonated and effervescent. The mouth has too much body for me... A slightly above average weisse.

The hazy, light orange hued brew is topped by the typically magnificently thick, dense, creamy and very persistent ivory - white head. Esterwise, clove notes are more pronounced than banana. Sweet malt, wheat tartness a touch of citrus, and yeast mustiness follow the expected esters and are quite enjoyable. This beer exhibits excellent balance all around... Light clove flavors, citrus zest, grainy wheat tartness and pleasant residual sweetness are all well integrated. Hop bitterness, although expectedly light, adds a crispness by sufficiently balancing the malt profile. It finishes w/ tasty honey notes that fade fairly quickly. Hacker - Pschorr Weisse is a tasty German wheat, and displays excellent drinkablity. With more complexity, this would be superlative.

Noticed a light citrus flavor, offset by spice (cloves?)

Cloudy gold coloring, and a fine ring of white resting on top.

Overall, I enjoyed this beer, and find it to be one of the better wheat beers I've had.

A very good weiss, another excellent offering from the Hacker-Pschorr line of brews. Would love to try it on tap. Smells delicious and has a nice wheat and hops balance. Excellente.

Nice slightly cloudy golden in color, with a thick lasting head. Brussles lace is absollute the thickest I've ever seen. Fresh tasting with a fruity clove and wheat fragrance. Slightly carbonated and highly drinkable.

Just a notch below Paulaner and Franziskaner in my opinion. Head quivers like a poached egg, golden orange cloudy body, terrific beady mouthfeel, aroma a little milky and sour. Banana, cloves, bubble gum flavors. Good healthy yeast comes to the forefront, well supported by perfectly toasty, almost invisible, malts. Quite more-ish, meaning the finish begs for another sip, especially if it is not too cold. Aftertaste is pure pineapple. Everything is here for a great hefe, all the characteristics are in place, just not that intangible divine quality that would push this brew over the edge.

This is a good hefe. Nice cloudy dark orange color with average hefe head. The nose is a bit spicy (cloves) (almost like they used belgian yeast, but not quite) with notes of esters and some citrus. The esters aren't quite as strong as in Schneider Weiss, but this is still one of the more flavorful hefes I've had.

Big surprise...another delicious German Hefe Weizen. IMHO, Hacker-Pschorr is right up there with the best of them. Full mouthfeel, smooth banana, clove flavors. HP may be a touch more tart than Paulaner or Weihenstphaner.

What a beautiful beer. Had it on tap, deep yellow, absolutely cloudy. One word, bananas, describes the aroma. Excellent Weiss beer, sweet fruit flavors at the very front, deep wheat/yeast on the palate, and long malt/fruit/hop aftertaste. Very complex and wonderful. Buy this.

Month later: had it in a bottle. Very nice. Pay money to buy this.

My dalliance with German Hefe-Weisse biers continues....
I love the color....a cloudy (yeast-induced) medium golden color. Big creamy head to start, fades rapidly, but leaves a small ring throughout. Nose has a combo of banana, clove, yeastiness, touch of citrus. Fairly smooth tongue, with medium body. The typical Bayerisch Hefe-weisse flavors abound: the fruitiness combined with spiciness... a good mix.
Assuming it's a nice, warm day...high drinkability...still good if the weather rots, like today. Prosit!!

This is the bar to which all other hefeweizens are measured against (along with many of the other classics...Paulaner, Franz, etc).
Rich milky honey in color with a fat, creamy head. Peppery, lemon and clove in the nose....but not as strong as some others.
Quasi-lemon tartness and clove on the taste buds. Sturdy malt base adds some sweetness and stability. Actually, maltier than alot of hefes. Wrapped up with some grassy, herbal hops flourishes
Smooth on the palate, and excellent warm weather brew. Especially nice a cooler summer evening (due to it's relative heft).

I had it at a restuarant tonight. They took the liberty to squeeze in the gaudiest lemon wedge I had even seen. I am not normally against a small lemon to go along with one of these, but this was too much. The citric acid cut through most of the other tastes....but I have had it enough to know what is really like.
So, note to servers: go light on the fruit garnishes....my fault too, for not asking about it beforehand.

Lemon-peel, clover, and spice aromas. Severely hazey, opaque honey orange hues. Head resembles what you might expect on a root-beer float. Very smooth, very satisfying. Throwing all international boarders and traditions aside. This being a wheat based brew, it is hands down the greatest wheat beer I've sampled thus far on my beer journey.

Pours a orange / yellow color and hazy, the head is light, white and fluffy. The aroma is malty with hints of spice and carbonation and yeast. The spice is clove-like. The taste of the beer is sweet with the after-taste of banana, slight bitterness, smooth mouthfeel. This seems to be a fairly popular Hefe, but I don’t seem to like it as much as other people do.
