Very typical-looking hefeweizen: cloudy yellow body with a very lush, creamy white head. Full, wheaty nose, with some citrus/lemon peels. Herbal/grassy flavor. Slightly sweet finish, yet slightly tart and sour.

Hazy golden with an impressively sustained head - aroma of lemon, yeast, banana and a mild spiciness - soft on the palate - refreshing, with mild sweet malts, some banana and clove - some belgian-like floral qualities and a touch of honey - great summer brew.

500 ml bottle. Should have read the description before I poured: kicks up a BIG head in my small weizen glass. Foam becomes rocky as it settles atop a very cloudy yellow body, almost in wit territory. Smell carries notes of clove and citrus, while the usual banana smell is in the background. Tasting instantly brings up lemon zest, some more banana, and sweet Bavarian malts. Yeasty, but in a good way. Can’t find those flowery impressions they speak of, but that would be the first thing to be lost on a long import trip. I can see calling it "dry," but not by much. Certainly does NOT need a lemon slice in it, it’s fine by itself.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2006 Excellent Beer!! Poured a beautiful cloudy golden with a thick white head. Nose of bananas, yeast, clove and lemons. Tastes wonderful with cloves and spices that have good presence without being cloying as some weisse beers can be. My new favorite hefeweizen!!

A unfiltered golden colored brew with a good head. Liked the wheat flavors along with some other malts. The hops where noticeable and the beer drank very easy. Liked this as a good after working outside all day brew.

Another step on my wheat appreciation quest. Poured Murky yellow with a foamy white head. Plenty of yeast, wheat and carbonation. Nice citrus and butter notes. Another very drinkable wheat.

For me to give a hefe a score like this says a lot, as I really never like them. While this still has the clove and banana thing that I don’t dig, great aroma with a bit of lemon in the front without being overly sweet make this outstanding.

Wonderful clove, lemon, banana, yeast, and wheat aromas flowing out of the pillowy, thick white head. The flavor follows suit, with herbal clove and yeasty wheat, that goes down all to easy, with a refreshing, clean mouthfeel.. A classic example of the style, and delicious on a hot sunny day!
