On draft at De Wildeman. Pale gold in colour with strong carbonation. Typical hefeweiss aromas of banana, vanilla, and a bit of clove. Similar profile in the mouth and medium bodied, but with a nice snappy mineral note on the finish. Very refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,5 l bottle, bought at Sörspecialista.hu
Poured hazy golden with a fantastic foamy-creamy white head that never disappeares. I slip the beer from under the foam....Fine banana aroma with some caramel, fruits like fig and green-apple, some citrusses, mild spicies. Lively carbonation, medium body with weizen-yeast-flavor, fruity, phenolic banana and citrusses, mild green apple again, some sweet mellifluous malt. Balanced spicy taste. Classic one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Cloudy, messy golden color. Fluffy, somewhat diminishing white head sits on the top.
Aroma: Intense nutty, bready malt quality with definitely sweet vanilla and banana esters.
Flavor: Distinct vanilla sweetness fills the palate instantly and followed by some faint grainy, nutty malty notes. Peaked in a vivid clove and coriander spiciness.
Mouthfeel/Palate: Intense, prickling carbonation. Easy body with slightly watery feel. Rather spicy than fruity flavor profile.
Overall: Quite nice Hefe-wheat with a good sweet malty backbone and a nice crisp, spicy yeast quality.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Milky golden pour, nice head retention. I’m not really sure what to say about this one. Everything you look for in a good hefe is there, but nothing really sets it apart. Its very nicely balanced, and is a great example of the style, but it doesn’t have that little something that sets a brew like weihenstephaner apart on its own level. Very enjoyable though.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2012 Golden yellow hazy body with pretty big soapy white head. Green bananas, corn flakes, candy peaches, light fresh yeast. Light sweet, easily drinkable. Very tasty base maltyness, light citric hint towards the end. Smooth carbonation. Perfectly brewed, rises just above the other German big guns. Drink cold. (50cl bottle, pretty cheap, re-rated)
