One of the best Hefes I’ve had. Had a great head when bottle poured, very murky, with traditional wheaty/lemon aroma. Taste is exceptional; crisp, resfreshing, dry, with no lingering bite. Very drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is bananas, lemons and freshly baked bread. Appearance is a murky yellow with a large head. Flavor is a banana fest mixed in with some whipped cream and lemons. A somewhat crisp and dry aftertaste. If I enjoyed German Hefes I’d be all about this one, but I rarely find any that impress me. Not a fan.

Clear and yellow with the standard big poofy head. Citrusy-yeasty nose. Big time banana candy flavors here, with an usual spicy twist.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A cloudy yellow color withloads of action in the glass, a big foamy white head. Nice spice, banana & cotton candy aroma. Sweet wheat malt gives way to banaan flavors then lastly, a nice lemony zest. Mild cloves, not overpowering, barely noticeable. A very good, if not quite a great Hefe.

Ahh, what a refreshing beer. No lemon please.
Wheat aroma (of course) comes through in the pour. Further investigation brings out bubblegum and banana. Light cottony head, great lacing.
I didnt quite get the spice, might be my palate tonight.
Very nice beer.

cloudy gold, fluffy white head. aroma of wheaty malt, lemon and a bit of clove. taste exactly as it should but just doesn’t seem to have a lot of soul. still good though.

My brother gave me a bottle, and I was happy he did. Excellent look to this beer and surprising smooth flavor. Lemon aftertaste makes this a solid hefeweizen. Worth sampling at any time of the year.

An unclear orange beer with a fine white collapsing head. The aroma is of wheat and bananas. The flavor is sweet wheaty and fresh with notes of chewing gum. A very nice hefeweizen. Thanks to Alex (fiulijn) for bringing this to Denmark.

Bottled: Light yellow coloured. White head. Spices, yeast, banana aroma. All the wellknown hefecharacteristics, but just not strong enough for my likings. Same goes with the flavour. Yeast, wheat, spices etc. are all there, but a little too watery. Dies quickly on the palate.
