My favorite beer! I love wheat beer, and especially hefe weisen, I have tried many and typically american made are pretty bad on average. This one is by far my favorite of any german or american I have tasted. Definitely a sweeter beer, with obvious banana notes. Great beer for a hot day!

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2005 Finally in bottles in NYC!!! Excellent sweet, yeasty brew with a lasting foamy head. Had it to celebrate my birthday today, so that probably made it taste even better. An excellent German Wheat that’s up there with the best from Germany and gives Herold Weisse a run for its money. Very sweet and yeasty and not in the typical German HefeWeizen style.

Wow!! I can hear the Oom-Pah band play if I drink enough. Nice head, nice flavor, very refreshing. The perfect replica to the German Weisse!

Garrett Oliver is a stickler for beer styles, and he produces some very authentic, very delicious, domestic examples of the classics. Brooklyner Weisse is no exception. This is a very well done example of Southern Bavarian hefeweizen brewed with the classic Weihenstaphenar yeast strain, and the proper amount of malted wheat. Brooklyner Weisse pours to a beautiful, very hazy, pale, yellow color with a tall, rocky, white head, and a vibrant carbonation. The nose on this beer is excellent with lots of good aromas of clove, banana, and pear. The palate is tart and refreshing with really good wheat malt flavors, and a nice back drop of estery, fruity flavors of pear. This beer finishes with more good, tart, wheat malt flavors up front, then ends with some notes of banana and clove. Stylistically very accurate, and very delicious. A classic match with a mid morning snack of weiss wurst sausage, or a hearty breakfast.

On tap right from the brewery, Very fresh with a nutty wheat aroma, with hints of banana, cloves and citrus. Golden and hazy in apperiance with a frothy head. Tart in taste, not too sour. Overall very refreshing to sit back and drink.

12oz bottle obtained at Whole Foods in Portland, Maine. Pours crystal-clear deep amber body (after carefully decanting) with a half inch of off-white head. Smells estery - banana and nut jump out - with a slight hint of tart fruitiness. Tastes like banana, nut, and clove, with a nice smooth transition to a slightly sour dry bite toward the finish. Aqueous light body with moderate carbonation. Extremely drinkable with nothing but pleasant balanced flavors to compliment the light refreshing body. Probably even better mit hefe - guess I’ll try that on the next bottle. Still one of the best hefeweizens I’ve had.

It was pretty good. Very light and crisp.. It had a nice even yeast taste which was followed by cloves, wheat, and maybe even a hint of banana. I would get this one again for sure. I recommend you try it if they have it wherever you are.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a crisp golden orange color that left a thick white head that disappated quickly leaving a small lace. The aroma is fresh, brisk, orange and lemon zest followed by a generous helping of citrus and piney hop bite. It follows with a sweet banana and spice background typical with a Hefeweizen. The taste is highly carbonated, sharp bitter bite of hops round out this sweet bready fruity interpretation of the style.

Very good pour. American Flatbread had this on tap and it was very frest. Hazy unfiltered body with a big whit healthy head. Smell of citrus with a hint of clove. Unreal!!

Cloudy golden color with a white head. Smells like bananas. Each sip I tasted something different. Once I taste banana, clove, pound bread, and so on and so on. That experience made me love this beer.
