Golden yellow, little head.

Wheaty and clovey, but smells a little artificial somehow.

Typical wheat, clove and banana. Heavy on the clove and kind of dense feeling.

Mouthfeel lacking a pop I associate with the style. Uncarbonated and syrupy.

Something was off for me on this one. Maybe it's been sitting around awhile at the bar?

Tall, flip-top half litre bottle, best before 03/2012, poured into a Franziskaner Weissbier glass in Oct 2011.

Only got three quarters of the bottle into the glass, so huge was the head (and how I poured it I suppose). The body is a moody, dull, murky dishwater brown, the head as already stated was huge and creamy.

The usual Hefeweizen smells, but subdued not in your face vanilla, bananas or explosions of yeast from this beer, a gentler aroma comes out.

The taste is also subdued compared to a lot of the Hefeweizen I've encounted over the years. It's fine, but lacks anything to take it above the stand out ones and is just an average brew in my eyes.

Served from a 16.9 0z. bottle.
Decent sized head quickly dissipates, leaving some lacing.
Beer is a bit clearer and darker than many other examples of the style.
Aroma features some offputting burnt, yeasty notes and not much else.
Taste is an improvement with subtle banana and clove notes detectable.
Mouthfeel is nicely medium bodied with an appropriate level of carbonation.
This isn't a bad beer overall but I have problems with the prominence of those odd yeast characteristics in the aroma.
There are several other beers in this style I would choose first.

A German Hefe. Maybe I was expecting too much. Overall appearance was good, smell was ok. First drink hit me at the front with a touch of skunk. It went away fast but kind of turned me off. Overall a nice beer, just though it could use just a touch of smoothing out. Definitely a wheat but almost, just barely fell towards the category of a mass produced, less refined beer. Sorry, just my opinion...

Pours out a cloudy tangerine with a somewhat rocky, yet not very thick, head. The nose is of light phenols with an overall grainy presence. Not very interesting. Overall, too subdued. The flavor is mostly malty with subtle wheat, grain, and phenolic flavors. Thins out an becomes kind of watery. Mouthfeel is quite thin with not enough carbonation. Aside from the way it looks, this is pretty much your average hefe. Not bad, but not great. This pales in comparison to their dunkelweizen.

Appearance: Cloudy golden yellow with a medium head and some lacing left on the glass afterwards.

Smell: Malt and grain.

Taste: Malt with some clove spice flavor but not as pronounced as with other Hefeweizens. Somewhat dry and bitter tasting and lacked the subtle malt sweetness I like in other Hefeweizens.

Drinkability: This was an average Hefeweizen. Definately drinkable but not one of the best out there.

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

Hay orange in color, with a very beautiful white fluffy head.
The smell is strong, with sharp notes of yeast, cloves, banana.
Same for the taste, strong. Full taste, with a very strong yeastiness, with cloves.
A very in-style weizen, with all the standard notes. Very strong.
Maybe a bit less drinkability for that.

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.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a thick white head that holds up for a while. Smells like banana and spices. The taste is a bit sweet and fruity. Carbonation is about right but this beer seems a bit watery. This beer is drinkable but there aer many other hefes i prefer over this one.
