Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Aroma of citrus and banana. Taste surprisingly less citrus like than other hefeweizens. Strong banana presence with hints of lemon and orange peel. Very refreshing and easy to drink.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Cloudy orange-yellow color. Pretty mild as far as aroma. Creamy with a subtle balance between the hops and the banana-like flavors of the yeast. Nothing extravagant or spectacular, just a quality German beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a bottle purchased at Edelweiss in Portland, OR--From a bottle poured a hazy golden hue with a big white head. Nose of sharp cloves, banana and tangy yeast and wheat. Not as lemony as many Bavarian hefes of past. Dry, wheaten flavor and finish. Mildly acidic and overall quite nice. I like my hefes to taste like this. Very nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Heavy wheaty aroma with some yeast and lesser notes of lemon. Golden body with a huge fluffy white lacing rocky head. Great malty taste, wheat with a spritz of citrus, though slightly muddled. Lightly tart. Medium-light body, dries out slightly to a wheaten aftertaste, with tangy cloves just barely making their entrance at the end. A good, well-made Hefe, but didn’t excite me.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle; poured a welcoming hazy golden color with a gigantic pock-marked solid, white helmet. The aroma is tart, super sweettart. This drinks quite sweet, but not as sugary as the aroma. This doesn’t have a lot of the yeasty, fruitiness of so many classic weizens. Bit bubblegummy, mostly fruit salad-like. (#2985, 6/20/2007)
