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.

Beer pours a clear, light, bright gold with a large, frothy, white, quickly and mostly diminishing head. The aroma is malty with light notes of toasted grain; light notes of banana, clove, vanilla, and a trace note of fake-butter. The flavor is moderately sweet and trace bitter with a short, lightly sweet finish with a teeny tiny trace plastic note in the retro. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.

I wondered what the heck a brau weisse was, but as soon as a tasted it I knew it was a hefe. Has a nice cloudy pale colour, taste is a bit spicy, had on tap, so didn’t get to do all the special pouring the description says, but still a decent hefe.

Incredible hefe. Pours cloudy dark yellow with a puffy white head. Aroma of bananas and wheat. Very smooth and strong taste. Wheat, yeast, bananas, lemon, and citrus all mixed and balanced throughout. Highly recommended.

Great head and lacing. Great aroma of yeast and lemon. As is Taco Mac’s style, this was server waay too cold. After I let it warm up some the real wheat aroma came through. Taste is, of course, right on for this good example of a German Hefe. I was glad to see, at least, that the bartender didn’t put a lemon slice in the beer. This is a great beer to have on a hot, early summer day in Atlanta.

This was poured from a 16oz bottle into a huge weizen glass.Its appearance was cloudy and yellow with a nice white head.The aromas of banana and wheat and lemon were awesome and seductive.Then the taste,which included all the aromas,as well as bubblegum made this beer a fantastic beer experience.

Porurs smoothly w/ a thunk like good beer should. Huge golden to white head. Initial hoppy smell followed by fruits and cereal. Cloudy but not murky composition. Clear enough to see bubbles rising. Very prounouced sweet banana taste. Also some apricot, rich heavy cream, and fresh dough. Very appealing mouthfee. Smooth like a glass of cold milk. What little aftertaste there is, is very pleasant. Not the typical hefe, but very very good in it’s own right.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2006 Plastic sample cup at the Penn Museum. Wheat and spices. Beautiful, even in a little plastic cup. Taste is fresh grass, mild sweet citrus with a foamy body. Not as pasty-wheaty as other wittes I’ve had. Worth another try. 4/1/06 - Tried again and rated the same. Cloudy tea with a glacial head. Thick champagne with a full mouth. I like the way the citric carb cuts through the wheat body to make for easy drinkin’.

(500 ml bottle) Pours cloudy pale grayish yellow with a huge foamy white head. Aroma is wheaty, citrusy. Poor spotty lacing. Mouthfeel full, pretty smooth. Flavor is wheaty malt (with the glue-like flavor quality I associate with wheats) with a citrusy tang finish. Nice, refreshing.
