COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Delicious lemon and vanilla scented wheat beer with yeast. This is an aristocratic beer with a champagne sparkle and a beautifully sustained head. With the pale color of mountain honey and tart refreshing palate, it is a "brut" beer with the delicious, complex fruitiness of extra-dry champagne. Bottle conditioned and top fermented, it is a benchmark for this style of beer. The nose is fruity-spicy, herbaceous with lots of flowers, and fruit. With such a creamy head, you can build miniature mountains that resemble the Alps. Pour slowly, fill the special weissbier glass half full and swirl the bottle on the table to put the yeast in suspension.

Pours murky yellow with lots of bubbles and a thick white head that lasts for a long time. Yeasty and floral aroma with scents of honey, wheat bread, banana, and citrus. Refreshing flavor features tropical fruits along with the citrus, vanilla, and a hint a spices. Has a creamy texture but it is also quite thin and light-bodied. Slight amount of sweetness and not as much carbonation as I was expecting from the pour. Has a crisp, clean, dry finish with no bitterness or sourness. This will make for a good refreshing summer beer out on the beach.

Pours a cloudy pale gold with a large, fine bubbly white head that lasts forever. Fruity nose followed by complex flavor of clove, citrus, and yeast. Light body, but excellent mouthfeel. Tart finish with light hop bitterness. One of the best hefeweizens out there. I love this beer.

Bottle. Cloudy gold with a large white head. Aroma has wheat, cloves, fruit and banana. Highly carbonated, crisp and refreshing. Nice sweet/bitter balance, citrusy and spicey. A superior Hefeweizen.

A very good beer. I tried a lot of different hefeweizens over the summer and this was the absolute best.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 27, 2005
On tap at the Huber Haus. Pours an amazing cloudy light gold with a cloud-like white head. Aroma is delightfully fruity and banana-like. Flavor is at first overwhelming banana esters, followed by a yeasty bolus. Slightly tart at the finish, but mostly a smooth balanced wheat beer.

Large foaming white head. Very noticeable aroma. Foggy off piss yellow color. Tartness is noticable but not overpowering. OK but not going to buy again.

Hefeweizens are typically a boring breed, but this one is as good as any gets. Pours a murky golden yellow with lots of thin fizzy white head. Smells of wheat, honey, citrus, and spice. Taste is more of the same. Nice amount of spice and banana esters but without being too overbearing like many Hefe’s are. Mildy sweet and thinner bodied. Very refreshing.
