Fine wheat aroma, some good spice notes too. Hazy golden, small white head. Mild wheat flavour, small bit of clove. Light bodied, creamy. A well made beer.

Cloudy, light yellow pour, with a huge, lasting head. Very light aroma. Yeast, wheat, banana are evident. Nice, creamy mouthfeel. A bit heavy on the banana, but the vanilla adds a bit of complexity to this brew. Excellent, smooth finish. Extremely easy to drink. An excellent hefe.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2013 2013-04-01. Hazy dark yellow body with a nice white head. 3+ Sweetish yeasty wheat aroma, modest esters, fruit, banana. 7+ Flavour is similar sweet fruity wheat character, mild yeast and banana eaters. 7+ Average plus bodied palate suits it. 3+ A touch mild even for a weisse, but quite enjoyable. 7/3/7/3/15+ Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto
Re-rate Unintentional re-rate, but I am glad I did. Bottle from Premier Gourmet. Slightly vigorous pour yields a massive white head on a hazy pastel golden yellow body. Yeasty, slightly citrusy bready aroma and a fair does of banana. I thought I god some bubble gum at first sniff but I couldn’t find it again. Sweet, with the slightest hint of wheaty tartness, very slight citrus in the flavour. Excellent mouth feel is full bodied with the occasional lighter moments. Finish is banana with an alcoholic follow up. Very nice. 8/4/7/4/17
Pre-Ratebeer Rating Fairly clear body. Bit of light clove in the aroma. Has notes of the usual wheat beer flavours of banana and yeast but not much of either. Light, not exceptional wheat beer. 6/3/5/2/13

Cloudy yellow. White head. Yeasty banana aroma. Light, grainy feel--could be livelier. Yeasty, grainy flavour of banana, peach, wheat & cream.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured out of a standard Hefeweizen sized 500 ml bottle. Aroma is very faintly banana. Looks decent with a cloudy pale golden body, but the head is a bit too small for the style. The head also dies out very quickly and little to no lace is observed later. Lively carbonation and light mouthfeel. Taste is light on the bananas and clove, and much more leaning towards lemon, orange peel, and pineapple. Very refreshing and crisp, but lacks the creaminess of some other hefeweizen beers I have tried.

Wow--who knew that Weissbier could be this good? The subtle hints of vanilla and citrus in the flavor and aroma lead up to a refreshing taste that all beer lovers are predestined to love. Really. I'm not kidding. You don't have a choice.

This honey-colored dream pours murky with a dense white frothy head that laces well and lasts. Very yeasty in aroma and flavor. After the doughy sweetness crosses your nose, a moderate citrus and floral scent appears. This beer doesn't impress with sophistication - just balance. The creamy (yet dry) and soft mouthfeel (lacking any bite) makes this soooo drinkable. A true pleasure.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2004 This beer looks fantastic with its large foamy frothy white goodness of a head [ein sehr grosses Schaum]. The head does not remain long [dauert nicht so lange], but the flavour is so mild and pleasant and refreshing that you do not care so much. Its appearance is of a cloudy, thick, creamy opaqueness, a light golden. Ovreall, a positively delightful brew, not overpowering or offensive, but completely compliant, tasting of vanilla, bending and willing to quench your beer-thirsty desires, to satiate your ever-expanding beerthirst [Bierdurst]. This beer ranks with Oberdorfer as oen of the best Weissbiers I have had. "Even the burp tastes good. Holy crap [heilige Scheisse]."

A really nice hefe. Not the best, but better than most. A very fruity, lemon-like flavor. Lighter in flavor and mouthfeel than Schneider or Paulaner, but not the lightest. Overall, one of the better hefes out there if you find it. Quite refreshing.

This isn't amazing or nonstandard in any way. It isn't over the top. It isn't new. It isn't extreme. It's straight up hefeweizen and all that that implies. If you don't care for weizens, this won't impress you. If you do care for weizens, this is an excellent quaffable beer. Ich liebe Bayern!. . . . .they know how to do weizens right.
