Heavy clove, some smokiness, very light banana ester....as it warmed the light struck sulphury smell came out (too bad it started so well). Pleasent malty flavor, a little of the smoky flavor carried over (weird), not terrible though. A very pretty hazy golden almost orange color. Overall not bad but a sad example. A favorite of mine I’m sure it’ll be better next time!

Yep! This is an imported beer alright. I still have not grown a liking to foriegn beers yet, and my favorite type of hefe is american made. But this beer is pretty good for an import. I definitly think it’s the yeast they use that gives it it’s bananna flavor.

this beer is one that has to come with an acquired taste. it has a sour taste too it. it is good when you don’t have lots of money to spend on alcohol. Very cheap but gets the job done.

Banana and apricot nose with that hefe cloudiness and thick head. smooth flavor that ends with a slighly acidic taste on the tongue. skip the lemon wedge on your first one to get all the flavor.

I really really like this one. Wheaty, not too citrusy. A top refreshing, but still beer-tasting weiss.

I generally prefer dark wheats to hefe-weissen, but of the light colored ones, this stands out. Nice balance of sweet and sour fruits with spice.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2004 Head is initially huge, frothy, white, fully lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (bread, cookie), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), trace hops (flowers), with light notes of bubble gum and clove, hint of plastic. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A somewhat-less-estery-than-most and rather commercial example, not as clean or interesting as better hefeweizen. Vaguely artificial, some off notes as well. Not very good.
