3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very weak (yet sweet) aroma; I don’t know why others have rated it so highly in this department. Very clear amber color, no cloudiness to speak of. Small-to-medium head that dissipated rather quickly. Very pleasing to the palate: perfect amount of carbonation, very smooth. Definant banana & citrus blend in the flavor. I very much prefer this to the Hacker-Pschorr Weisse I had earlier in the evening.

This is an excellent, refreshing wheat beer with smooth citrusy characteristics. Top of the list for a german wheat.

Gotta love that sweet wheat beer aroma. Picture perfect cloudiness of a hefe. And oh so good. Sweet and wheaty. Definently one of the best.

I really enjoy this beer. It is very well balanced and almost has a champiagn aftertaste. Slight banana flavor that’s not overdone.

This is a bavarian hefe to the T. Attractive cloudy pale gold. Citrius on the palate with restrained clove/banana compared to other german hefes I’ve had. Extremely crisp and refreshing. A perfect beer for the hot spring day on which I sampled it.

pale hazy yellow like a heron’s beak. a billowing creamy stout-like head, but blonde. a brisk clean citrusy yeast aroma over a suggestion of english muffin. big hefe in the nose for sure (and i customarily don’t care for big things in my nose). the taste is all citrus, some spice, bracing like slapping on an aftershave, clarion and festive on the palate; great, cleansing, except that, tsk, i’ve never been ga-ga about lemon. it’s a brewing marvel, a classic, just not my type.
