A sweet mixture of spices and fruit with hints of clove and banana, this refreshingly pale German wheat is top fermented, unfiltered and lightly hopped to achieve its smooth, pleasant flavor and unmistakable cloudy appearance.

Pours a straw gold yellow with thick white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of wheat, yeast, spices, clove, banana, and a slight toast. Flavor matches well and is very drinkable. I could definitely drink many of these and not get bored. Extra points for that.

Delicious beer starting with the light scents grapefruit, cloves and bananas and continuing through the smooth malted wheat. And yes, an extra "appearance" point for the amusingly posed pooch on the label of the bottle from which this was poured.

DSG (8664) - Tel Aviv, - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Leviís place. Thanks Leviís friend. Cloudy yellow. Aroma of graininess, vegetables, overripe fruits, a smoky note, a bit of spiciness. Slightly swetish flavor, with bread, yeast, graininess, some spiciness, fruitiness, and a vegetal touch. Quite light-bodied.

Very bubbly bright orange/brown pour with quarter inch white head. Wonderful aroma of clove, lemon, metallic hops, waxy paraffin/wheat. Soft carbonation, foamy mouthfeel, crisp finish. Flavor of clove, wheat, lemon, grassy hops, Apple and pear. Great tasting Hefeweizen albeit a bit light.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Tap: Labeled as "The Hef". Super cloudy pear-yellow color. Opaque. Aroma of mild bubblegum, bread, yeast, faint clove, a touch of banana esters, & a hint of lemon zest. Flavor is more lemon & citrus zest up front & in the finish. Middle has clove, biscuit, gummy yeast, & a bit of banana. Kind of watery at times. Thin-ish mouth feel. Not bad.

Very hazy yellow pale pour with quite a bit of head. Very unique taste. Iím used to my Weizen having a fruit taste, usually citrus. This one though tastes like banana. Yes banana. This ss not a bad thing.

ralflott (8) - Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2014 does not count
A very good, albeit second-tier, Bavarian Hefeweizen. Not in the same league as true Bavarians Weihenstephan or Schneider, but one of the better American offerings. The Weissbier from Redwood Lodge (Flint) , Jimís Hefe, is closer to the Bavarian ideal.
