Hazy yellow color with huge amounts of white head. Great aroma, fruit and yeast and some spice. Flavor comes through as well, lots of fruit flavor. Light body...good stuff.

Hazy yellow colour with a nice thick head. Fruity and yeasty aroma and a taste of fruits and clove. This is a nice wheat beer !!

This is a good wheat beer, better than hoegaarden in my opinion. Extremely smooth, goes down nicely. Nice aroma and a good head. Medium body.

Looks like typical wheat beer. Similar to Hoegaarden but with more coriander. Peary, heavy coriander spice throughout. Great and refreshing

Had in a 2.0 liter glass boot in Madison, WI. Deep honey golden haziness. Good to drink in the heat. Light-bodied as a good deal of wheats tend to be. Would drink again if given the opportunity.

Very nice head and colour. Smells really good, but somehow disapointing taste and palate. Very refreshing.

Could smell this stuff out of my pint glass, feet away, while already soused. Scary start really but that was the end of the nastiness. I'd had a lousy experience with Ayinger's Ur-Weisse and was scared of this German Wheat. To my complete surprise, THIS one is completely balanced and unoffensive. Nice cloudy amber pour with a large-ish fluffy white head. Malty wheat flavor is strong but not obnoxious. I don't notice the hops in this one. Light body, clean finish. I'm pleasantly surprised.

One of those beers that lingers in back of your mind, very clean like most German beers (and towns) nothing bad about this, the smell is a little heavy but who cared!

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2007 Rerate, 12-09-2007, 50cl can, Leffe goblet, bbe 06/08. Head is large and creamy, descending upon a hazy golden body. Aroma is big on bubblegum and cloves, no bananas to my nose this time around. Sweet flavour with bubblegum and heavy creamy quickly picks up spicy clove and pepper notes closing with a semi-dry, tart and wheaten finish. Medium bodied with a velvety texture and bustling carbonation. Flavour would be better if it were more banana than bubblegum, but oh well.

Old score: 7,4,6,3,13 = 3.3 500 mL bottle, served in a hefe glass. Frothy white head diminishes slowly. Body is a hazy peach color with no visible particles. Banana and clove overtones; perhaps a hint of bubblegum. Grainy malt, flowery hops, doughy yeast. Sweet start is pushed back by a slightly acidic and bitter finish that is somewhat short. Medium body has a watery texture. Significant carbonation consists of many small bubbles. Slightly chalky finish. Taste doesn’t quite live up to the aroma; palate doesn’t quite live up to the appearance, IMHO. Still, a good hefe, if a bit overpriced.

I am surprised that I never rated this one. This is a classic amongst german wheat beers. I will fluctuate in quality depending on where you sample it but at its best it is a tart, super refreshing bavarian wheat beer. It has a high degree of phenolics (cloves) and banana esters in good balance. Although refreshing, it tends to have more body and character than most weissbiers. Absolutely lovely.
