Stuedmaster (244) - Vista, California, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Aroma of wheat, lemon, banana, clove. Pours rich gold with a huge, billowing white head that leaves artistic lacing. Flavor is light sweet, medium sour, and light bitter. A very dry and refreshing beer good for many occasions. A great thirst quencher and 5% abv allows you to have another. A classic representation of the style, you can’t go wrong with this beer.

Zlotta (101) - Bonn, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2014 Draught from PerfectDraft. Hazy, brownish-orange with thick, frothy, stable, white head. Typical aroma of banana and cloves. Sweetish taste of banana, cloves and honey. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, flat carbonation, crisp and slightly bitter aftertaste. Delicious and refreshing!

I acquired a taste for German Weissen beer during my time living in Germany in the late 80’s. This is one of the most common brands available in my local area bars and beer distributors. It has a nice amber color with a nice wheat / yeasty aroma. Pour slowly to avoid the massive head of foam. Very effervescent. The excess yeast filters to the bottom. Leave a little beer in the bottle to swirl around and finish the pour. This was an acquired taste for me switching from Pilsners to a wheat based beer but I haven’t regretted choosing to expand my flavor palate. Overall this is a good choice for anyone not familiar with this style of beer. I always have some on hand for me and the wife. Goes great with a little lemon wedge.

Citrus, alcohol, ginger, strong, acid, textura bastante gaseificada. A dunkel é mais facil

I love these German Hefe-Weizens. And the Franziskaner makes no exception. A very true-to-its-style Hefeweizen. Love it!

loubar (89) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 25, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Whole Foods. Nose of cardamom and cloves. Tastes mildly spicy with banana, cloves, wheat, honey and slight breadiness. No bitterness as expected by the style. Light to medium smooth body. Medium carbonation. Excellent drinkability. Great example of a traditional Hefeweizen:. Love the low ABV.

Boxereddy (154) - BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2014
Mistig donkere oranje kleur met een blijvende schuimkraag. De tarwegeur prikkelt de neus. Smaakt kruidig en licht zurig. Een echte klassieker en een biertje voor elke gelegenheid.

badpuppy69 (266) - orange, California, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Pours a semi hazy orange with nice head that disappeared pretty fast. Aroma is tangerines and some apricots. Taste follows the aroma well with a Belgian yeast type note. Wet mouth feel. Pretty sweet brew.

Bottle rated from notes, it poured a somewhat cloudy gold with mild clove + banana notes. A fairly smooth wheaty body made for a decent standard weizen, I prefer Edelweisse though...
