3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed a bottle at the Black Forest Restaurant in Nederland, CO, USA. BTW, the meal and service were fantastic -- genuine German food, well-prepared, served hot and fresh. I extend a really STRONG recommendation for this restaurant!!!)
Apperance: nice pour, blonde with a snow-white medium head that reduced fairly soon to a small ring. Note: Nederland is at 8,200 feet altitude -- I suppose that effects the head retention?
Smell: mild banana, mown hay, light spices, light hops, lots of wheat/yeast. Really nice aroma.
Taste: nice wheaten flavor, mild hops, a bit of orange and clove.
Mouthfeel: too much carbonation for me.
Drinkability: only had one, so I can’t tell a lot here. Seemed very easy to drink, though the high carbonation might make one feel overfull. Could that be due, again, to the altitude at which this was consumed?
Overall, a nice H-W. Calls itself "The World’s #1 Hefe-Weizen," which is probably a bit of advertising hyperbole. I would drink this by choice in many situations.

500ml bottle. Pours hazy amber with large light brown head that lasts for a couple of minutes with good lacing on the glass. Aroma is of yeast, clove, and alcohol with the slightest hint of banana. Taste is clove with hints of hop bittering and finishing sour. Average carbonation. Overall, a nice but not exceptional weissbier.

Bottle @ home. Pours haxy golden with a white head that disappears quite quickly. Hay, banana, white bread, some clove and green apples and cardboard on the nose. Taste has some creamy sweetness with dried bananas, wheat, dried apples, some cardboard that doesn’t mix well with the nice sticky carbonation. And a really dry aftertaste of even more cardboard.

I like the slight wheat sweetness of this beer. Liquid is golden and head is full. Hops a bit floral and texture a bit creamy. A very nice wheat beer indeed.

Very poor taste for weissbier, dissapointed me. But many woman like this beer for light taste, i prefer more complex wiessbier like legendary Weihenstephaner or Andechs. Don’t want to buy it again!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours hazy straw, with a large white head. Not much on the nose (very large head), some malts. Hints of malts on the aroma, some fruitiness. Not that bad, but bad for being a weiss.

Can, 50cl. Pours hazy golden color with big, creamy white-off head. Lovely. Aroma is yeast, wheat, bananas, bread, malty sweetness combined with citrus notes. Flavor follows the nose, sweet and fruity, balanced with clear wheat and yeast. Weak hobs. Average carbonation. Medium body. Pretty standard mass produced hefe-weizen, nothing special, still pretty good though.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours a cloudy gold with a white head. Taste sweet, fruity. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again.
