COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Pours out to a cloudy gold in the glass. Aroma is that of banana and yeast. Taste is that of banana, cloves and nutmeg. A very nice hefe. Highly drinkable.

Another good German wheat beer. Pours a cloudy, pale yellow color with a big, lingering white head. Leaves good lacing down the sides of the glass. Nice yeasty, fruity, wheat aroma. Medium bodied with a perfect amount of malty sweetness balanced with spiciness. Very smooth and delicious, one of the best wheat beers.

Light golden color with a typical tall slightly off white head. Light banana, clove and vanilla aromas. Fruity and dry all in one. In the top five in my hefe list.
