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.

Nice cloudy deep gold color with solid, foamy, lasting head

Not a ton working on the nose other than citrus, orange peel, wheat

Flavored mostly on the front end with a mild soft finish. Obvious orange and citrus flavors, deep wheat with a little sweetness.

Smooth mouthfeel. Subtle wheat aftertaste

Overall I think its solid typical German Wheat Beer. Not too complex but very drinkable, especially coming up on summer.

12-oz bottle poured into a Weizen glass.

A = Nice translucent golden liquid a large white head with fair retention, medium lacing on glass.

S = Typical hefe-weizen smells but a little more subdued than I would like. There are the typical banana notes, some almost nutmeg spiciness, light scents of citrus fruits and rinds, mostly orange and lemons. The problem is these are not nearly strong enough and I could wish for some more of the citrus.

T = The taste suffers from the same lack of oomph that the smell did. It is pleasant but just not enough to get a higher score. The one item of note is that there is a very strong taste of baked banana in the back of the mouth that lasts well into the finish. Otherwise, it starts with banana and under cooked wheat bread with yeast flavors, citrus flavors of lemon and organe arrive at mid-palate but quickly fade into the banana finish.

M = Medium bodied, carbonation stings a bit too much, mouthcoating is good.

D = This has decent drinkability, but for the style it is really only average. I give it slightly above average because I think this style as a whole has pretty good drinkability.

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.

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.

Poured a bottle of this into a glass. Poured a nice, dark golden body with a thick, silky white head with decent retention thorughout the body. The smell of the beer was pretty fruity and citrusy. The taste had hints of banana esters but more of a citrusy taste to it than anything else (more than other hefe weizenbeers I've had). The mouthfeel was a little on the thin side, even for a hefe weizen. Overall, it is a decent beer and pretty drinkable. I would recommend it.

As a side note, order some water with this. I'm not sure what it was, but it dried out my mouth rather quickly (no, it wasn't from a lot of alcohol, this was my only beer of the night).

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a Guinness glass

A- Hazy warm orange egg yolk color with a high white head that holds for a while and slow dissipates to cloud like fluffs.

S- Spicy clove, lemon, and fruity esters, with a light banana character

T- Crisp clean fruity, light banana, fruity esters, very similar to nose.

M- Medium-light mouthfeel, doesn't stay long the mouth and begs for another taste

O- Very refreshing, great with most food, not as good as some of the other German ones like Weihenstaphaner, but still very good. A very reasonably priced beer as well for about 2.50 a bottle.
