Bottle shared at the brewery during day 2 of the Bamberg Jolly of January 2014. Pours cloudy yellow with a thick, foamy white head. Rich yeast and clove character, phenols, banana, moderate wheat sweetness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Good balance to the finish, with more rich yeast and wheat bread, light cereal, white sugar, phenols and fruits. Good hefe.

500ml bottle from The Allison Arms, Glasgow (£3.80):
This one was a very nice & also very traditional German style hefeweizen with all the usual suspects (banana/cloves/bubblegum/wheat) present. The beer was very easy to drink & was quite refreshing, I wouldn’t say no to another one of these but in all honesty I’d probably grab other hefeweizens before this one in future despite it being quite an enjoyable offering.

Icedwarf (916) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2015
Troebel licht geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht zuur en fruitig met iets van banaan en vanille. Niet bijzonder maar zeker niet slecht.

_angst_ (3819) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle bought @ Landbierparadies. Pours very hazy deep yellow with a big billowing frothy white head that leaves some sparse trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity estery and slightly spicy phenolic with freshly baked white bread, wheat flour, banana bread, red pears, hay, cloves, coriander, minerals and lemon peal. Taste is tiny sweet, fruity estery and tiny spicy phenolic. Mouthfeel is soft, champagne-like, very tiny tart, slightly dry and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, slightly bitter and very tiny sour with white bread, green banana, red pears, hay, cloves, coriander, minerals and lemon zest. Bit too red pear driven to suit me... Solid hefe though...

Recht sueffiges Weizen mit erstaunlicher Spritzigkei und ebenso grosser Sueffigkeit. Hefe haelt sich Rahmen, eher gibt es spritzige, lecht grasige Momente. Ausgewogene Perlung. Fuer ein Weizen nicht schlecht.

Bottle from Getränke Kistner in Forchheim. The beer pours out in a deep cloudy golden colour with steady head and smooth body. Aroma of yeast and bread. Taste of yeast, bread, dough, fruit sallad, cloves and wheat. Drinkable and solid Hefeweizen.

Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild but not washy, malty-yeasty, not too dry, fine fruity like banana, mild sourish hints. Finish well balanced, quite drinkable. Not bad!
