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.

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.

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.

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!

I had this in Kempten, near the Altes Rathaus about 1/4-1/2 mile from the brewery. Right off tap and had not drank all day, it was nice. Don’t remember much about all the details, but the head was beautiful and taste fantastic. I also went to the brewery’s entrance where you can buy mugs cheap. I got a mass krug for less than 3.30 euro and a 1/2 litre weizen for around 2-2.50 euro. I think I spent 18.00 euro for 4 masses and 4 hefeweizen. The town is also pretty nice in the alstadt, but did not see as much as I would like. The best mug prices in Germany

Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, dense tiny particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (light bread), lightly hoppy (flowers, lemon), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of banana, butter, and clove. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Rich malty weizen, which will probably make it a little too sweet for some people. But big esters, nice yeast and buttered bread character, and good body put this ahead of the pack IMHO.
