Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 18, 2003
Very pale with a bubbly, tall, long-lasting head. Aroma is of clove and bubblegum, with a hint of vanilla. There is a slight touch of citrus in the otherwise smooth wheaty flavor. Aftertaste is of vanilla, honey and a dry hop bitterness. It comes across as slightly less smooth and drinkable to a regular Hefe, maybe because of overcarbonation. There also seems to be less complexity and a thinner flavor.

MMM...Beer (385) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 8, 2003
Very light golen color with a foamy head. Light wheat on the nose and palate. Not oustanding, but nice and crisp and refreshing.

Nuffield (3835) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 6, 2003
Pretty plain yellow color--I've seen deeper color on American light beers--with a large, foaming head, dense, very white, and lasting for a very long time. Clove and ham aroma (I agree with this observation, credit to others for sensing it), with a vein of lemon especially in the early going. The flavor seems about 60-70% clove with a bit of pepper, banana, sourdough, and a touch of licorice. Plenty of carbonation in the glass, lovely streams, but the biggest thing about this beer is that it has a smoothness of palate that makes it seem lifeless at times. Even more oddly, the palate seems to improve much later (over the course of a half hour or more) with a slightly more carbonated mouthfeel helping to raise somewhat the standing of this one in my eyes.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2003
I am going to have to drink some more of this before making an honest opinion. This is very different tasting to me. First the appearance is very golden with some very lively carbonation, and a huge white soad head, that tends to fade very quickly. Extremely lemony and acidic, with a taste that is slightly sour, and somewhat annoying and unpleasing to the palate. More like a brut that a beer.

phillymonksman (60) - Ardmore, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2003
Light cloudy amber color with a nice head. A great fruity smell with a light palate. Good summer beer. A little sour aftertaste that I don't like.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2003
Enormous, fizzy soda-like head that faded fairly quickly but not completely. Very pale straw color and ultra-clear with lively effervescent carbonation. Pleasing citrus, stone fruit, and yeast aromas. Flavor and palate are rather thin and watery for a hefeweizen. Lacks the nice softness of a good hefeweizen. Comparing this to the Franziskaner Hefe-weizen is a classic example of the toll that filtration takes on depth and quality. I question whether filtration purely for the sake of appeasing the superficial aesthetic sense of neophytes is a worthy endeavor for a brewery. But I guess it’s all about sales in this case… and I bought one.

alanC (36) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 8, 2003
Crystal clear, straw color. Nice carbonatioina nd big cream head. Slightly spicy aroma with some banana and clove. Crisp, tart flavor with nice bubbly mouthfeel. The real champagne of beers.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 29, 2003
Pale golden with beautiful thick head. Sweet fruity aroma (bananas, lemons) and taste of candies and caramel. Simple and boring.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2008 Effervescent gold hue under a billowy white head. Bright, peppery nose replete with peach cobbler and banana cream pie. Spicy phenols tingle before bready malts and a light candy sweetness, finishing spicy still. Fluffy carbonation on a lithe, slick body.

Bright and brisk—quenching.

50 cl bottle, best before February 2009.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 19, 2003
Pours a clear golden colour, with champagne-like carbonation, with a big fluffy white head. Apple and grassy herbal nose. Light banana, creamy, pleasant citric notes. Light bodied, extremely drinkable. Fairly impressive and flavorful for a filtered beer...I believe this is my first filtered german wheat, and it wasnt half bad...
