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.

(bottle) Cloudy orange colour with a huge, slowly lacing foamy white head. Clean and balanced yeasty banana-fruitiness, wheat character and clovy notes. Moderately sweet flavour, well-bodied with a sparkling carbonation. Wheaty and fruity (banana, citrus) taste; fruity and moderately clove-spicy finish. A fine and not too heavy, well-rounded Hefeweizen with session qualities.

Tap at the Acadia Cafe. This tastes so much like Sprite to me it’s almost silly. Quite an enjoyable wheat, though - flavors of lemon, more light fruits, etc. Maybe i’ll compare that taste more to "champagne." That’s a bit more palatable i suppose.

Draugth @ Hardrock cafe, München. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. Aroma is of whete, lemon, banana, and some earth spices. Flavor is mostly the same with some hint of citrus.

Appealing pour of a large, white head on hazy yellow body. Sweet aroma of banana, pear, caramel, clove and grain. Very sweet flavor on top of banana, pear, bready malts and grassy hops. Lively carbonation from a thin to medium body results in a comfortable mouthfeel. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2006 Will definatley try again because I was unable to drink according to specifications, but this wasn’t my favorite wheat. A bit overly fruity and floral for me, tasted like green grapes and apples. A very nice wheat flavor, great mouthfeel, but just couldn’t really apprecciate the fruitiness. A nice beer, but not my favorite wheat.

Hazy lemon pour with lots of spritzy carbonation. Buttery nose is layered with sweet breads, vanilla wafers and sweet fruits. The body is equally sweet, with lots of caramelly malts and banana cream notes. Really drinkable and well balanced - the yeast plays a secondary role to the sweet malts and makes this really work. Good stuff.

Hazy light gold with normal sized head. Nose of bananas and cloves. Taste is much the same, with some spice and lemon. I’ve never been a huge fan of the original hefes (love pales and ipas), but this one is rather nice...and is changing my mind overall.

Rating 400! 16.9 oz, no date. Pours a cloudy light golden with a large rocky white head. Aroma of banana cream pie, cloves, yeast, a little citrus, possibly some spice. The taste was much the same, which overall is what a hefe is supposed to taste like, though this is done very well. Highly carbonated--too much--and light bodied. Overall pretty darn good for a hefe.

Ultra-frothy and fizzy head that lasted forever. Nice hazy golden-yellow color, the archetype for the hefeweizen. Citrusy and flowery aroma with elements of yeast, wheat, spices (clove, nutmeg), and banana. The perfect balance of typical hefeweizen flavors: wheat, yeast, citrusy, spicy, bubblegum/banana somewhere in there... just awesome. As close to a perfect example of the style as one can reasonably get.
