3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark golden, hazy with a huge, nice and creamy head. The aroma has notes of wheat, clove and banana. The flavour is surprisingly powerful considering the low ABV, and IMO just as nice as many stronger wheat beers. It has sweetness and notes of wheat, clove, banana and the finish has a slightly dry citrus.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours a cloudy orange color with a medium head to it. It has a nice aroma of floral sencts and hops. as you drink it there is an initial bitterness with some tang on the back of your palate. It is very appealing and a ncie dinner beer.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2008 Bottle. Hazy hefe, quite darkish yellow color. Not very flavorful and a bit watery. More on the hoppy spicy side than sweet. Ok. Re-rate: Much better on second tasting, almost on par with some regular hefes. Thick yeasty mouthfeel and surprisingly strong flavor for a leichte.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle. Hazy amber body with a thin foamy head. Smell of green apples and cloves. A sharp, but short-lived taste of tart fruits followed by wheaty dryness. Rather thin palate and watery impression (Brauereigasthof, Aying 17.06.2007).

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tried this one at a pub in Rochester NY, and I got to say, I was not disappointed at all. Poured a nice cloudy, copper/yellow color with a white head. immediately I was struck by the banana bread-like smell and taste, though it was not as strong as some other hefeweizen’s I’ve tried. i see it’s listed as 3.2 ABV but the one I had was 5.2 ABV, must be cause I got it in the states.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
As expected, a little watery when compared to their other brews. However, for 3.2 ABV this is a very nice beer. Feels like it would go down well on a hot summer day. Bit fruity aroma, rather crisp. Flavor certainly lacks any real nature, but follows the aroma quite well. No real finish and feels very light.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from freezer - oops, the head is huge! Probably because of me. Hazy orange colour, surprising. Looks like mead. Nice honey aroma, a bit spring in it as well. Quite nice, very refreshing bear at least when enjoyed this cold. I wouldn’t say it’s watery. A bit short finish though.
