From the bottle. Pale straw gold with no head to speak of. A bit cloudy but not as much as I expected. Aroma of yeast, wheat and banana. Thin and lightly carbonated with a taste of citrus and wheat.
Refreshing and very good for the price.

Cloudy yellow with a medium head. Nice lemony aroma with almost a hint of banana. Good wheat and citrus taste. A little watery, but pretty good.

Not as powerful as the Konig Hefe, but Berghoff is a solid beer that produces quality beers that are reasonably priced. I really liked this one. Not as good as the Konig but its still a good beer.

This pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The smell had a little clove but had a dirt scent to it. Very thin a weak flavor like they are producing this for Bud Lite drinkers. Very disappointing, maybe the sink pipes liked it more than I.

Like dirty water, with a heavy dark yellow tint and a thin white head. Yeast in the aroma and the flavor, with a candied malt overtone. Decent wheat.

Pour is a hazy yellow with no head. Smell is wheat, banana. Some orange? Taste is that of a wheat, though not as clean or tasty as most. Less than average, imho.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light yellow in color with a thin, white head. Head is totally diminishing. Aroma is lighly citric, with bananas, cloves, and a heavy yeast presence. Rather light on the palate, with low carbonation. Surprisingly solid for a Huber beer, and I enjoyed it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy light yellow color with very little head. How can you make a wheat beer with no head? Does have the clove(mainly) and banana nose character of a German Hefe. Lots of clove in the flavor, with some banana. The yeast sediment was much harder to stir up than most Hefes. There was a lot of it, however. It does taste like a Paulaner lite. And much easier to drink. Would be more refreshing, but the lack of carbonation is a serious defect in this beer style. Still, it is cheaper and fresher than its German counterparts(or American for that matter) which counts for something. The only Berghoff beer I’ve tried that doesn’t taste like a base plain lager with some flavors added later.

Banana yeasty aroma. yeasty wheat flavor. very similar to german hefes such as paulaner. kind of similar schells, true german flavor without the full body of its european counterparts
