Cloudy yellowish-golden hue. This wheat smells terrific. The typical banana and clove scent is there but there is also somewhat of an apple cider spiciness that gives this hefe great character. Taste is wonderful as well with a very fruity presence. This is one smooth German Wheat beer. Simply delicious.

A nice Weisse. Huge head took up most of my mug. Took several minutes to go down. Mine had a pale yellow color to it. A nice subtle banana flavor. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A fantastic ’Chilled Hazed’, Golden-Orange color, the head is a ’Whopper’, white in color and the lace is significant. Nose is a tad yeasty, earthy if you prefer, citrus, malt and quite clean. Front is malt, the top light, the finish is acidic, dry, lightly hopped and a passable ’Beer’, but nothing to ’YELL ABOUT’. Ranks #565 on my current 1000 beer master list.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a gold with slight reddish hint. White head with moderately large bubbles. Nose is very clovey, perhaps the most clove smell of any of the hefes I’ve tried. Taste is nice wheaty malt, perhaps a little less ester flavor than I’d prefer but still present.

Overall a good Weisse. The yeast provides an extraordinary banana aroma and taste. Great for those evenings after a hard day’s work!

Amazing. Bananas in the mouth and wheat and bitterness going down. Only complaint is that its got a high carbonation that impinges on the taste developing more.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Description of aroma is accurate, vanilla and citrus. Good flavor, just lacking a little bit, can’t put my finger on it. Overall very enjoyable, and quite sweet. Awesome bottlecaps.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting foggy honey color with great head and lace. Citrusy/banana smell with a definite hint of flowers. I may tend to agree with the lemon and vanilla description. Rather thin and mild yet there is a complex maltiness that tickles the palate. I think this may be a bit overrated, as it seems a bit watered down for a good wheat, but it’s pleasantly refreshing....did I mention how cool the bottle caps are?

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2011 Frugal lemons and wheat ride refreshing effervescence…Admirable balance of banana esters and clove-y phenols...Excellent, refreshing weizen, from the bottle and on tap at the Ayinger Speis und Trank in Munich…
