2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yellowish with a tinge of orange pour includes a billowing white head. Scent is wheat, lemon, slightly metallic, and banana and clove (faint). Taste has a definite citrus element to it with subtle wheat notes, banana again with light spices. Palate is light, bubbly and rather thin. An Okay Hefeweizen, this wouldn’t be my first choice if I was looking for a Hefe, but it does refresh and is very drinkable.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Hazy, pale golden coloured, huge creamy white head, slowly diminishing; faint sourish fruity (citrusy) nose, only weak traces of bananas, a bit yeasty, too, slightly sweetish flavour, sticky mouthfeel; short, sweetish and fruity finish. a pretty bland and boring Weizen, NOT refreshing, NOT well drinkable. The equivalent to Warsteiner in the world of Weizen..........................

0.5L bottle, personally shipped from Germany. Opened to celebrate arrival of my beer & wine shipment. Poured into Erdinger Hefeweizen glass (of course). Lasting, fluffy white head atop a cloudy yellow-amber body. Nice aroma of fruit, some spices, and grains. Good flavors - mainly light fruit and grain notes. Not overly carbonated, but a little lively with a nice, smooth finish. I’ll cry when this case is gone. Well done!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle 0.5l. Bright golden - almost yellow. Hazy. White head disappearing rather quickly. Too carbonated. Hardly any smell or taste. Disappointing

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
50cl bottle. Poured an unattractive murky yellow-tan into a footed pilsner glass with a towering white bubbly head (moderately diminishing). Aroma is almost nonexistent but what there is is quite plesant: spicy & fruity with some yeast and DMS. Flavor is also nearly absent. Bitter with some grain and DMS. No finish at first, eventually a short, sweet & buttery finish. Flat, watery palate. Inoffensive but boring, boring, boring.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2009 On tap at the Hessen Haus during the 2006 Crescent Moon Beer Bus Trip. Cloudy yellow gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is fantastic of cloves, bananas, and lemons. I could just sit and sniff this beer all night. Flavor is yeasty, tangy and seriously carbonated. Awesome head retention- the last gulp was a big ol’ blob of white foamy head. 1/13/9- On tap at the Huber Haus. very refreshing with an outstanding amount of yeast for vom fas. Delicious.
