3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Zum Franziskaner, Stockholm. Nice cloudy golden/orange body topped with a thick foamy head. Typical yeasty aroma with spicy and citrusy notes. Taste is fresh and well balanced. Various flavors of yeast, banana, citrus and spices. Ends with a good hoppy finish. Good example of German Weizen.

An above average good german Weisbier. Its refreshing, but lacks a bit of temperment. It’s lazy, but still my daily favorite over a pilsner.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A bit boring, typical cloudy golden with white fine head. Nose was a bit skunky, mouth was watery, clean finish. I think I nedded a fresher one, unfortunately I still have four skuny ones. hmmm. Maybe I’ll revisit.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another good hefeweizen beer, not as good as I was expecting. The initial flavor provides great complexity with warming depth. As the beer settles / warms, there’s diminished character. Flavors remain consistent, instead of wildly diverse and exciting. Recommended, but try enough other German offerings and you will be sure to find one much better.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2006 Bottle. Good gold color, decent head for the type. Lemon tinge below the hops. Odd aroma. Decent brew, but seemed a little lacking in overall balance. I guess I am just not a big Hef fan.
Note: I drink this on draft this time in Eisenach, Germany . Very different from the bottle I drank before so maybe it was bad lat time. This time it was clean and a cloudy gold, with a big white head. Good nose, and very refreshing. Nice flavor of spices and fruit. I am re-rating this.

Excellent hefeweizen. Like all of that type, it’s quite heavy. Good aroma, great taste, very refreshing. Doesn’t need a lemon to survive, unlike others of its ilk.

Cloudy gold color with a medium size white head. Aroma of wheat, cloves and banana. Flavor of wheat, yeast, cloves, banana and citrus. Somewhat tart. Nice and refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Golden colour, small white head. Odd wheat like aroma, slightly citrusy. Some malt base in taste with a crispy mouthfeel and a little hoppiness at the end, but otherwise, pretty average really - enjoyable, but not something I would reach for again. Thanks for sharing jercraigs.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2006 Hazy medium gold in colour. Clove and banana aroma, with perhaps a bit more weight on the clove side of things. Surprisingly rich texture and full flavors of vanilla, banana, clove, and yeast. Long lasting head too. Very nice indeed
