3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tampa, Fl. - Total Wine - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a hazy light orange, pillowy white head, nice lacing. Hint of clove in the aroma, some yeast. Flavor has some brief bubble gum notes, hints of bananas and a yeast back end. Mouthfeel is thick enough, but finishes kind of dull. Not the most outstanding hefe.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle, bought in Denmark, probably at Voldby Købmandsgaard. ABV is 5.4%. BB date 20.07.13. Hazy orange colour, large white head. Smells a bit "off", sweetish notes of malts and caramel, only hints of banana and cloves. The flavour is somewhat better, malty character, not too sweet, but again the typical hefeweizen notes of "banana & cloves" are very subdued. Lacks some of the "freshness" of a better hefeweizen, Might buy a fresher bottle at another occasion, to re-rate.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark orange-amber color with an enormous creamy orange-white head that lingered forever and left great lacing. The aroma was tart sugar, taffy, clove and bread. The flavor was tart citrus, clove, anise, honey and bread. Long finish with citrus, bread, clove and honey lingering. Moderately full bodied. Solid if unspectacular.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - this is a might fine looking beer - effervescent body - thick, creamy, lasting head - the rest doesn’t match, but isn’t bad - a little thin on the palate - a bit of bubblegum - a little sweet, overripe bananas, apples - a light acidity - a little bit of spiciness in the finish - lacks the depth of character you want from the style, but okay.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl Bottle from Vomar Noordwijk. Brewed for Benediktiner Weissbräu in Ettal, by Licher, so my bottle says. Hazy golden orange colour, dense off-white head. Aroma of sweet banana, clove, yeast, wheat, typical Hefeweizen fare. Flavour is medium-sweet, spicy, clove, banana, some light-refreshing wheat, light-bitter finish. Light-bodied, firm carbonation. Decent Weizen.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle with many thanks from MiP. Hazy orange-amber colour with steady head and medium body. Nose of yeast and sparkling wine. Taste of mild elegant yeast, fresh bubbly hops, grass and green apples. Due to its high carbonationcarbonation it is quite refreshing. Nice one - and I must admit this though I don’t really like Hefeweizens anymore.

Ein einfach, unspektakuläres Weizen, das mit seiner Würze und leichten Säure zu überzeugen weiß. Wenige Aromen, nicht mal bananig, dafür recht frisch und erfrischend. Nett !

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle, 0.5 l, at William K Kurvi, 20120422) The beer poured orange and cloudy. Its head was quite large, dense and white. Aroma had clove, banana and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, clove, banana, malts, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. Nice and clean hefeweizen with a watery and short finish.
