Beautiful. Great flowery nose with a ton of zesty yeast to balance it out. Nice hazy off yellow color with a constant stream of tight little bubbles flowing to the underside of a rocky, thick, brilliant white head. Snappy tart flavors jump all over your tounge immediately and turn dry and lemony finish. Nice yeasty finish to cap it all off. Just leaves me wanting more.

Wonderful aromas and tastes of bread, yeast, spices; a well-balanced thirst quencher.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2008 Soft cloudy yellow with a very decent. Very mild spicy aroma of lemons and coriander... the vanilla that it describes is barely noticeable, but nice. The spiced flavors mix well with the carbonation, and the finish is light and crisp. A good one indeed.

Good hazy yellow color with the appropriate head for a Hefeweizen. Good nose of fruity banana and spice. Smooth and satisfying. I've never had a bad one from this brewery.

This beer poured a yellow color with a nice white head and left no lacing on the glass. Very clear with nice carbonation. This beer represents what I think a hefeweissen should be. Aroma is fairly normal for what you'd expect from a hefe, but a little stronger. The flavor was very smooth and enjoyable. Very wheaty and a bit sweet with a grainy feel.

Nice white gold beer with a great foamy white head. Looks like a Hefeweizen should, muddy. I smell vanilla, citrus, bubble gum, banana. Nice flavor, much like a belgian white, slight citrus flavor, apple peel, leading to a very mild slightly dry finish. Quite enjoyable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2008 (Bottled) Opaque yellow-orange with a medium, foamy, lasting and lacy head. Fresh aroma of vanilla, dryish banana, and yeast. Some witbier character, too. Banana-fruity, dryish flavor with a strong vanilla feel and some lemony floweriness. Medium-bodied, refreshing palate with fizzy but soft carbonation. A real summer thirst quencher, somewhere between Schneider Weisse and Hoegaarden, with a twist of Liberty Ale. Should appeal to women as well. Definitely among the very best Hefeweizens out there.
(Bottled, rated 1/24/2004, was 8-4-8-4-16=4.0) Yellow, muddy color. Small, mostly diminishing, white head. Heavily yeasty aroma with vanilla, close to white wine. Sweet and acidic flavor, quite acidic finish. Medium-bodied with soft, dry and oily mouthfeel. A very enjoyable and complex weisse.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2006 I’m not that big a Weisse fan and I didn’t find the aroma of this stuff to appealing,but the taste was surprisingly good, banana, lemon hints and it didn’t leave that oily feeling on the tongue. This one I would recommend.
