Crisp spicy aroma. Murky beige body under a pure white head. Bubbly. Nice bits of yeast floating around. Sweet, fruitiness with a crisp finish. Not bad overall. I think mine could have done without the sun tan in the green bottle on the way from Germany.

A fairly representative hefeweiss, lots of bubbles, crisp clove and banana aroma. Decent milky amber appearance makes this a decent choice, but there are much better beers out there. Save your money and buy an ayinger or erdinger.

Too fruity for me, I prefer a bolder hefe-weiss. Pleasently crisp though and very little to no after taste made this beer drinkable for me. I would not serve this with anything heavy or seasoned though.

Cloudy orange-yellow with a big white head. Yeast and orange aroma. Mild yeast and strong banana flavour. A good zesty and refreshing beer but with a short finish.

This beer brings back memories of the early winter beer gardens in Munich. Great big head with a golden color, has hints of banana and citrus. A wonderful weissbeer.

Pours a golden weisse, with a somewhat thick head. Aroma is pleasent of wheat and fruitiness, mostly banana. Palate is some of the same, though with emphasis on wheat.

1 pint 0.9 fl oz. bottle. Pours a hazy dirty gold with thick off-white head. Plenty of effervescence. Aroma is yeasty and of bananas and spices. Taste is surprisingly smooth. Still tangy though not as much as I expected. Very refreshing and crisp. Taste is spicy and fruity. Excellent.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2005 Tasted 05/03/2005. Batch L05441T. Green 330ml bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits.
Pours a murky gold with a volcanic carbonation that fires clumps of yeast everywhere and lifts up a tumescent, stormy, off-white head. This collapses nicely after a few minutes.
Nose is greeted with a punchy bouquet of banana along with a woody and spicey yeast (cloves, cinnamon).
Mouthfeel is not at all watery (as I’ve come to almost expect from wheat beers). It is in fact quite creamy and releases a wheat and banana flavour with some yoghurty yeastiness. Little noticeable bitterness.
Palate is left spicey and sweet with some alcoholic warmth.
A top class wheat beer and a standard for the current kiwi wheat beer craze to aspire too.
Shame about the new "export green" stubbie bottles.
