Differently shaped bottle, but appears to be the same beer. Thanks to mymrngjckt for shipping it my way.

Appearance: Hazy peach/gold in color, huge white head with good retention. Appears highly carbonated. Good lacing - exactly like a hefe should look.

Smell: Banana bread - a nice combination of banana esters, bready malts, and clove-like spices.

Taste: Fairly light and easy to drink. Lots of banana. Some bread and spice. Citrusy, acidic finish. Aftertaste is banana bread.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium body, well-carbonated.

Drinkability: Nice and easy drinking, a great example of the style.

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

Freshness date: 04 06. Served in a weissbier glass at just over fridge temperature. The latest in a series of hefe-weizen tastings this summer.

Appearance- Pours a cloudy banana blonde, with nice active carbonation... a billowy and pillowy head easily grows to three fingers, with substantial lacing. The crown subsides to a fat marshmallow after several minutes, securing a great score on the eyes.

Smell- The usual suspects; banana, clove, and some mild phenols... full and fragrant in this beer. Luscious and fat, the aromas are up front here.

Taste- A wonderfully bold banana bread character with soft clove notes riding behind... the mild hops give this beer an easy finish. Delicious. Crisp, satisfying, and full flavored with excellent balance.


Mouthfeel/Drinkability- Creamy, foamy, very kind in the mouth. The level of crisp activity seems just right for this beer, and drinkability soars as a result. A great example of this traditional style.

hazy amber with a fluffy white head. distinct peachy aromas are present in addition to traditional weisse aromas or bannana, cloves, and citrus (lemon).
dominant cooked bannana flavors and aftertaste. there are caramel flavors that i'm not sure if the are distinct from the bannana or part of it. lemony tartness is present, but not at all unappealing. finished with warm clove flavors and a hop bitterness i can't identify very well. a medium body with a nice stiff carbonation make this very refreshing. very drinkable. it screams summertime beer.

Aroma is a bit of citrus and banana woven together. Pretty dead on for style, if not a little muted.

A little bit of banana esters and clove spices are evident at the front of the beer, but they are fairly weak and don't add all that much to the flavor. Carbonation seems fairly high in this beer. There's a sweetness with a bit of an off flavor on the finish, which reminds me a bit of honey. No hops are detected in this beer.

As far as hefe's go, I've definitely had better. I can't color myself impressed with the muted tastes up front and the odd taste in the back.

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!

Decided to get this beer after reading the review of it in the newest edition of BA magazine. Poured into an Erdinger glass an orange color, with a large white head with great retention. Smell contained ripe soft bananas clove, bread, and a slight hint of blueberry. Taste was full of bananas and wheat, but also had a slight eggy flavor to it, which I've experienced in a few other wheat beers also. Mouthfeel is light/medium, and slick on the palate. One of the best Hefeweizens I have ever tasted. Cannot wait to try their Dunkelweizen.

bottle poured into a chalice

apprearance is a hazy orange colour

aroma is a bit faint, but i can detect wheat, citrus

taste - this is nice - floral,wheat, citrus (lemons), fruits (peaches), orange marmalade

mouthfeel - light bodied, good carbonation, smooth on the way down the hatch, good aftertaste, what a refreshing beverage

Drinkability - these go down so easy and the ABV allows you to easily throw back three or four in one siting and not be in too bad a shape

A high quality hefe that is at the head of the class for the style

12oz. bottle poured into a weizen glass. It pours a hazy orangish yellow with 4 fingers of foam. There is a good amount of lacing on the glass. The smell is malty with cloves present. A good classic weizen smell. The taste is malty also, with fruity esters such as banana and orange. It also has spices like cloves and a hint of nutmeg. The mouthfeel is nice and strong for a wheat beer. The drinkability is also wonderful, and this is a great session weizen.

Poured from 330ml bottle into 500ml Weihenstephaner World Cup glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden color with an orange hue. The head is white, thick, and fluffy, and is absolutely massive- it dissipates at a relatively quick rate, leaving behind spotty lace (the spots are in many shapes and sizes).

Smell: Strong hints of wheat and a slight spiciness are backed up by yeast and faint banana/clove.

Taste: Begins with a wheaty flavor that has slight hints of apple, rounding out to some banana, and finishing with yeast alongside a slight spice. Maybe a few faint citrus notes, as well.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with lively, though not quite sharp, carbonation. Finishes watery and refreshing.

Drinkability: An easy-drinking beer and everything a hefeweizen should be. A great beer for summer days, making it baffling that I had this a week before Christmas. A great example of its style, and a beer I now cannot understand why I put off buying for so long.

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.

Probably my first ever Weizen, and enjoyed it on 2 continents, time to give it a review.

.5l bottle with a best by date of 11/12. Poured into my HB Willi Becker, which is shaped well for a Weizen, no fruit.

A -- Hazy, gold-orange (peach-like) with the perfect, creamy, dense white head that holds up forever.

S -- Spicy clove, banana/bubblegum, mild breadiness back.

T -- Mellow clovey-banana character right up front, spiciness in the finish, mellow breadiness rounding off the aftertaste. Very refreshing on a hot summer day.

M -- Mouthfeel is soft and lightly spritzy with a medium body, but not filling.

O -- If you're craving a good Weizen in the Bavarian tradition, you can't go wrong choosing the Hacker-Pschorr -- it delivers everything that the style advertises.
