Pours cloudy caramel with a large cappuccino head, aroma is pure Hefeweizen...delicious. Taste is instantly bananas then spices. A cracker.

(500 ml bottle: $1.99 at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA) This is most certainly a gorgeous beer. Pours a bright orange-golden body that’s fully cloudy, but I can still see quite a legion of carbonation bubbles rising quickly through the beer. The tall white head settles to and maintains a quarter-inch crown atop the beer for the entire session, leaving some patchy lacing. The nose is only mildly aromatic and is nicely balanced with wheat and banana, but there’s also some plastic table cloth going on there too. A balance of wheat malt and subtle banana in the flavor, but the finish seems a bit stale to me. Light-medium body tends to trail off toward wateriness in the finish. Contrary to what the visuals might indicate, the carbonation level is pretty light on the palate. You know, I seem to remember this tasting better years ago, and looking back at past notes, the quality seems to have dropped off now that it’s part of the massive conglomerate. Just not that exciting a beer any more.

A Creamy head - the body a bit too Cloudy - color a bit muddy Yellow.
Slightly thin beer with a delicious sweet flavor and not bitter at all!

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2005 Big white head, lasting. Nice fruity flavour. Great on the palate, full flavour, almost no carbonation. Only the slightly too sour aftertaste took the over-4.0 rating from this one. I personally like Paulaner & Erdinger more. Still very, very good hefeweissbier, definitely recommended.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2006 Very nice hefeweizen. A very refreshing style, and this one covers all the usual assets well. With a nice and steady banana + clove aroma, it also carries through well into the flavour. A fairly well balanced flavour it is, which gives it it’s quaffability. A little gassy with a bit of rubber in the aftertaste, but it’s a pretty solid beer.
