Amazing cloudiness and wonderful smooth taste. I enjoy a pint of this stuff nearly every week at the neighborhood bar. Add a lemon near the end to give it a little something else. So smooth and delicious, a little fruity. The most beautiful glass and amazing color.

Nuffield (3701) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 6, 2003
I think I was a little surprised at first at how highly this was rated, because the subtlety is strongly suppressed at even a bit colder than ideal. Big, white head, more regular and slightly larger bubbles than the Club-Weisse, dark yellow/brown/amber, mildly hazy (not deeply so). Quite light aroma relative to the flavors, with yeast and wheat being strong. The flavors are nice when it is warm enough, spicy and fruity, bananas, light pepper touch, gentle clove, perhaps a bit of bubblegum. Like the Club-Weisse, also, the palate improves as it warms, from the initial watery bleakness to a soft, fluffy carbonation with enough citrus sensibilities to think someone chucked in some lemon zest. Still, a bit flat, but the flavors are good. Somehow I would think the ideal hefeweizen would have those flavors at a slightly colder temperature than is required for this one to reveal itself.

eraserhd10 (226) - new haven, Connecticut, USA - NOV 6, 2003
Cloudy in texture and aromatic like dried potpurri flowers. The beer itself is not opaque which is a little suprising for a beer that is fairly light in taste. I can't see my fingers through the other end of the glass. Fluffy head. I taste fruitiness, citrusy... peach, lemons, orange peel. Decent beer with a little bite.

Had this draft, poured with a nice head. Cloudy light color. Smelled a bit fruity, plums/raisins/bananas? Nice carbonation, pleasant taste, I imagine this would go down well on a hot day. A bit subdued on the finish, little left to savor. Not my favorite style, but tasty just the same.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - NOV 5, 2003
Bought a single pint.9 bottle that was very well priced (under $2). Tall, thick head atop golden lager. Smelled great and tasted easy, relaxing, and refeshing. Tiny bubbles. I will buy again, especially at this price.

djmcfar (64) - Ixonia, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 3, 2003
Have tried this one several times. Sweet and strong aroma, light yellow cloudy color, large head - fine bubbles. The yeast taste was stronger than the wheat taste (reminded me a little of pale Belgian ale). I have the good fortune of living near a resteurant that serves it on tap in 17 oz glasses ("Settlers Bay", Watertown, WI). The last time that I was there I had 4 glasses and was feeling pretty good by the time we left.... thinking that the alchohol content must be higher than 5.0, but who knows :)

phillymonksman (60) - Ardmore, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2003
Light cloudy amber color with plenty of head. Nice orange, sour apple smell with a light bubbly palate. Nice smooth, light summer beer with a mild sour after taste.

hopscotch (9258) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2003
Cloudy yellow lager. Huge, white, frothy head. The nose is of clove, grapefruit, underripe banana and white bread. The flavor is well-balanced; fruity and yeasty; lemon, dough and straw. Thin and watery with lively carbonation. Short, refreshing finish.

jgb9348 (4781) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2003
Very hazy golden colour with a nice white head. VERY strong aroma banana aroma with mixes of cloves and coriander seed. Fantastic look and smell! Medium-light bodied; Strong spicey (the two aformentioned notes as well as curacao) but very clean with yeast and wheat characteristics. Aftertaste very clean and refreshing. Overall, a great German wheat - really one to savour. I actually had this one (I just realised it) at the Frankfurt Airport (Lufthansa terminal) well before I was 21! I had this beer on draught at MacGregor's in Rochester, New York on 21-October-2003.

Hazy golden color with a thick white head. The taste is sweet and fruity with a yeasty note. Nice on a hot summerday.
