3.59/5  rDev -11.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a .5l bottle with a freshness date of 11OCT2012.

A: Gorgeous fluffy head. Light golden haze, with the perfect amount of light barely filtering through the clouds. The head remained from the beginning to the last drop. Picture perfect hefe.

S: Very faint bread and banana air...very ordinary aroma for this style.

T: Clove bite, mellow spiciness gives this brew just a hint of intrigue. Yeast is faint. Leafy, grassy backdrop. Pleasant and very likable.

M: Creamy and smooth going down, inciting little riots of enthusiasm on the back of the tongue with every swallow.

O: Most hefes feel filling and peg me out on my hefe fun meter after half a liter. This one is more friendly to your sensibilities and could stand quite a bit more drinking in one session. Very worthwhile hefe-weizen.

4/5  rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy, quite pale golden color, with a large white head, thick broken lace, and slight carbonation.

Aroma: Banana and sweet cloves dominate the aroma, with hints of bubble gum.

Taste: Opens with a bread-like yeast note, soon turns to a mild bitterness. Finishes with a lingering clove note, and some slight herbal and citrus peel bitterness.

Mouth feel: Rich and full, quite soft, very pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Well-crafted, a solid example in a style where it is difficult to be a standout.

4.3/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured a huge bright-white head that held a good inch above the top of the glass. Glowing sunshine colored beer turned a bit more orange as a poured the last bit of sediment laden beer into the glass. Mouthfeel is great; soft and full, but still light. A bit of bubble gum and banana flavor at first that is joined by some clean wheat flavors midway through and it all just fades to nothing in the end.
It's got more flavor, and is a bit better all around beer, then my usual cheap beer Karlskrone Weissbier (discount brand at Norma supermarkets). It's just missing a bit of flavor, otherwise it compete with the best. There are plenty of beers costing twice as much that are no better (this one is 33 cents vs the 65 cents average), and if you see one I would give it a go.

Bottle Inspection: Brown bottle, label in German, but I could read (30.04.06), assumed best by.

Aroma: Bubble gum and banana with just hints of clove. Just how a Hefe should smell.

Appearance: Hazy yellow gold with a sticky white head that laced.

Flavor: Clove comes out a bit in the taste, light citric peel, bubble gum and grain. The grain gives an earthy aspect to the taste.

Mouthfeel: Creamy texture, medium to heavy body and a lingering finish.

Overall Impression: German quality hefe, hard to argue with that. Bottle was hand carried back by a brew club member (Thanks Chad!). Great drinkability, bubble gum was nice, no alcohol in the taste at all making it very quaffable!
Note: this is my 400th review. I was going to do something classic, but adding a beer to the database makes this special enough for me.
