3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of my usuals...sweet aroma of vanilla. Murky appearance with yeast debris..yum, but (I like the yeast so I roll the bottle around on the table). Thick, creamy, smooth head with a great flavor with a hint of bannana and cloves.

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.
