Bottle. Yellow-gold with a moderate white head that diminished mostly leaving little lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit - banana and papaya - mellow with yeasty notes as well. Flavor is also fruity and slightly tart in the finish with some spiciness evident as well. Medium light body and mellow carbonation.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Darkish yellow gold with the expected haze. Cereal like nose, like cream of wheat. Sort of plain tasting, a little tangy but not much lemon, bannana or clove, maybe a little diacetyl. Sort of dissapointing.

hazy medium golden, head is off-white, quickly disappearing. aroma is quite tart, yeasty and maybe oxidized. flavor is quite vinous and not hefe-like at all...fruity, and buttery...has chardonnay notes all over it.

hotstuff (4532) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2004
Bottled. A large sized white head with fine sized bubbles that fully diminished. The body had very little carbonation, yeasty, hazy and a yellow hue. The aroma was malty, banana, spicy and clove. This beer had a sweet, banana and spicy taste to it with a smooth and watery mouthfeel. This was a medium bodied beer with sparse lacing. There are better German Hefe's out there in my opinion.

thedm (5215) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 2, 2004
This bottled brew poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored long lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body starts out as a light hazy yellow brown color until the yeast begins to pour in and darken it to a more yellow brown color. There is a small amount of yeast floating in it but the bottle is a brown sediment that really colors the brew when the yeast is mixed in. The aroma is a pleasant yeasty doughy malty one and the mouth feel is tingly with a smooth malty feeling to it. The flavor is malty with dough and yeast. A smooth drinkable beer that can easily keep one drinking with friends at the local Gasthaus.

Pretty disappointed with this one. maybe i got a bad one but it was very sour almost like vinegar was added to it. its smells as if there is a lot of alcohol in it, but there isn't much to it this one, alcohol or flavor. Lot of yeast settled in the bottom of bottle. there are many hefe's out there thats are a lot better and i will be drinking those from now on.

First sip tasted almost like apple cider. Interesting sourness to this hefe, and I like that in a hefe. Light body turns me off a bit, but I guess it's appropriate for the style. I don't know why I'm always looking for thicker hefe's, since that would be a weizenbock.

pivo (2646) - GERMANY - DEC 22, 2003
Light pleasant clovy nose, hazy khaki color, big spongy head. Citrusy and wheat malt character. Spicy in the middle, dry dirty end. Napkin-like finish. very thin for a hefeweizen. Much better hefeweizens in Germany out there.

Suprised to read the other ratings- IMO it is one of the boring Hefeweizens as it is very boring. Has a lemon and strong vanilla nose, but also chemical tones. Orange color, little frothy head, medium carbonation. Weak lemon and banana taste - very sweet. Not much going on here.

This looks beautiful! Pours almost brown with a tall fluffy white head. The clear hefeweizen glass I'm drinking this from shows all of the body. This really looks nice when yeast/sediment is added. First, it turned the head into almost a latte like state - white with brown "spots" in it. The body became clouded with sediment swirls. Almost like a work of art! It hung suspended in the middle where it was poured. Awesome! Wish I could say the same about the rest. The nose seemed a little weak to me. Some malt, and some wheat and yeast notes, but nothing like other Germans wheats I'm used to having. The tongue seemed weaker too. It was good, but not great. Spice, malt and yeast. Finished very smooth and was easy on the palate. Refreshing though on a near 90 degree day! Worth trying, but there are better wheats out there!
