This could be called the ideal wheat beer. In a tall glass with Lemon, no aftertaste just good beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy yellow colour, with a big head (not really persistent, actually). The taste is spicy and yeasty, quite delicate. Surprisingly the aftertaste is fruity, with traces of banana, lemon and orange. A really particular and interesting Wheat beer.

Vigorous white head. Yeasty aroma. Slightly cloudy pale gold color. Hint of banana. A dry finish. If you like weissbier you should love this; it just isn't my favorite style.

Very nice aroma. Has a lot of clove but not much banana. Well balanced. High quality. Slightly sweet. Sweeter than Franziskaner. Light in color

with some wheats the better quality ones can be the least interesting to drink. this is quite delicate. plenty of vanilla in the aroma with a taste of some chicken stock, helles bier and a riesling aftertaste

Big Banana. This is an incredible wheat, no so sharp and dry but with a nice syrupy banana taste. very sweet and nice. hold this up as one of the finner beers of the style.

Pale, straw-yellow colour. Stale, bready, yeasty, slightly candyish aroma. Mellow banana flavour. A little spritzy. A classic German weiss.

Not as good as I had hoped. DrunkAsASkunk has the description on this one down perfect. Not a bad beer by any means, but nothing special.

An interesting smack of aroma right from the start....lemons, yeast, fruit, something barnyard-like...i’d call it hay, sweetness but not maltiness...and that ever apparent wheat smell..pretty complex and intriguing. The pour begins a golden colour, but this is very short lived...for within lies the secret of the little floatie yeasties!!! The danced perilously around my glass, clouding up all i could possibly see and creating an impenetrable gob of golden cloudiness. A head stood above this cloud practically 3 inches high!!!! Foamy, with mild creaminess it stood there like a champion throughout the majority of my enjoyment. The taste begins with a wheaty, yeasty, and spicey smack in the middle of the tongue. Very little sweetness here so the mid portion of your tongue is in for quite an awakening. The finish is interesting, with various fruits becoming apparent which were hidden nicely in the aroma. I catch something orangey, some banana, citrus, and peach-like, and grapefruit (which could be incorporated into the citrus-like category). It ends mildly dry, but not too dry. Probably my only knock here is the carbonation. Its mildly apparent in the pour that this is going to be filled with little bubbles...but the carbonation is a very huge deal here on the way down and inhibits drinkability just enough for a few marks downward on the scale. Those yeast floaties make all the difference in the taste, go grab yourself a bottle and you’ll be satisfied. I’ll grab one if i see it again.
