Anise ,banana, nutmeg aroma very present. A bit light bodied but very drinkable Weisse. Light bite slight hops. Lacing and head was poor in the bottles I had.

Smells great but has little body. Very little head, and an almost sour note on the finish. Not the best hefe.

Cloves, yeast, sourish, honey, light malt. Sweet, sourish, bitter, hoppy. Mouthfeel is fizzy and standard.

Indra (2700) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 6, 2005
500ml bottle. Spicy, citric aroma, quintessential German Hefe attributes of clove and banana along with background sweetish honey and wheat malt notes. Hazy, pale golden color with a rocky white head that fades to a fine cap. Flavor profile is sweet, bready and grainy to start with a hint of vanilla, becoming fruitier and featuring plenty of citric, acidic lemon thereafter, finishing clean with a refreshing, bitter quality. Light and fluffy on the palate with a light-medium body. Highly drinkable and a classic interpretation of the style.

An immense, rocky head falls slowly over a thick, cloudy, golden/wheat body. Big, bold, classic Hefe aromas, heavy on the clove with additional green grapes and smoke. Aromas are bigger than the flavor which falls a little flat in comparison. The yeasty goodness is still abundant, but it doesn’t last due to the beer’s thinness. I concur with the previous rater’s comment about it being a "drinking weiss" (sic).

Good in the summer because it has no body. It’s more of a drinking weisee than a savoring weisse.

KnutAlbert (6377) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2005
It is a proper weisse, no doubt about that, but it is a bit too malty. It lacks some bitterness and freshness to balance it.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2005
I used to love this. Now I find it way too banana. But it’s still a well crafted German weissen.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Draught. Hazy golden color with soapy white head that laced the glass. Delicious estery banana and yeast aroma. Bananas, cloves, yeast flavors. This is a great example of the style.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Cloudy yellow, fine frothy white head that lasts. Estery, yeasty aroma. Falvor dominated by fruit esters with some yeasty sourness. Light hops bittering noted in the finish. Not quite as clean tasting as Ayinger or Weihenstephan, but still quite enjoyable.
