Top class! Textbook example of a hefeweizen where the bitterness from the hops shows greater attention. Traditional yeast flavors of banana are obviously there, but a much larger malt body is allowed to dominate.

ordybill (534) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Poured from a 500 M bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- A fantastic aroma of wheat, fruit and spices Appearance- Pours a murky orange/gold color with a thick, off-white head. Taste- Outstanding, what a hefeweizen should taste like. Great wheat and fruit mix. Palate- A medium to heavy beer with moderate carbonation. Has a creamy texture. Overall- A fantastic beer, a must try.

BeerBunker (807) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2015
Bottle. Pours a rusty orange color with a fizzy white head. Heavy carbonation. Aroma is of wheat, citrus, bread, spice, and malt. Taste is of wheat, citrus, and spice. Has a bready malt backbone. Has a very sweet citrus taste underneath everything. Lingering spicy banana taste. Body is medium, with lots of carbonation. Very tasty and easy to drink. I liked this one a lot.

freretoc (1053) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 23, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 50cl à la maison, couleur presqu’ambrée, belle mousse blanche et effervescence moyenne, une bière blanche allemande bien équilibrée sur le malt, la levure (avec ce goût banane chimique) et la douce amertume. Une des meilleures dans ce style.

Zlotta (221) - Bonn, GERMANY - APR 19, 2015
0,5 l bottle at a restaurant. Hazy, brownish orange with a huge, fluffy, stable, white head. Aroma of banana and clove, mabe a bit of cinnamon as well. Sweetish and spicy taste of banana and clove, supplemented by some cinnamon. Short, slightly bitter and sourish finish. Medium body, fizzy mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Decent Weizen with lots of banana. Good!

PabloZab (329) - Wroclaw, POLAND - APR 15, 2015
Tap (Academus, Wroclaw). Barwa zlota, piwo metne, piana biala niezbyt obfita. Jak pszeniczne piwo i w aromacie i smaku choc w smaku ciut za kwaskowe. Delikatnie wytrawne, lekkie, pijalne. Ot jak pszeniczne nic nie urywa.

Beer4000 (4950) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 15, 2015
500 ml bottle. Unclear orange body with a nice, big, stable, creamy off-white head. Strong aroma of wheat, citric fruit, yeast, banana and cloves. Flavor is very tasty and refreshing, with everything from the aroma, the sweetness feels balanced. Body is just the way it should be and long lasting aftertaste, Might be my favorite German Hefeweizen, everything seems to be in perfect balance with this one.

Sjohnh (368) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2015
Amber coloured, cloudy with big frothy white head. Aroma of lightly spiced banana bread. Sweet taste, honey, tiniest bit of pepper. Finish is a bit bland and watery. Not bad.
