dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle split with Jcos....tasted like a generic fizzy lager with barely a hint of wheat. Body was very thin, bland palate, and overcarbonated. Not much in the nose either. Would not recommend it.

500 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained white head, over a cloudy yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is moderate grain, with clove, light banana/bubblegum......taste is grain, followed by clove, banana/bubblegum, hints of lemon peel.....mouth feel light, carbonation makes a tingling spritz. This is lighter in aromas and flavors than many Hefes but it has all the right qualities, is nicely balanced, and is refreshing to consume. There is no question it is a Hefeweizen. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

jstraw (1906) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Pale, murky, yellow with fair, creamy, white head / Big, honeyed nose of sour malt, lemon, banana, and spice / Medium to full body, moderately sweet, a touch thin but creamy, malty but excellent balance with appropriate but not strong hopping, and good, lightly bitter finish / Big but elegant flavors of sour malt, banana, orange peel, coconut, clove, and coriander / Never my favorite style, but this is an excellent example with big flavor and body with near perfect balance.

Henti (239) - Dunaszekcső, HUNGARY - APR 27, 2012
UPDATED: APR 30, 2012 Bottle. Cloudy pale yellow colour, which is almost white-like - a little unusual for me, but I like it,. Not a great aroma, tiny traces banana and hefe, a little sour. It’s taste is moderate, abut a little bit more GHW-like than its aroma: banana and some malt, and its a bit sour-bitter.

IrishBoy (3799) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 15, 2012
50 cl bottle from Doodler. Label looks like the picture on here. Nose is wheaty bready yeast, light banana, and a light clove note. Murky yellow with a medium pale yellow head. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly peppery, with a dash of banana.

ccex (903) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2012
I found this 50cl bottle at a great price in my neighborhood with a slightly different label than I could find here. The Grieskirchner ribbons are brown, there is a different city in the picture, and no mention of Jorger. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma is what I expected from a German Hefeweizen: more malty than hoppy, and breadier than anything American. Taste is slightly bitter with just enough carbonation to keep things lively. Body is medium and mouthfeel is almost creamy. Finish is warm and satisfying with nothing foul at all.

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Straw gold color on pour with decent lacing and average head retention. Earthy/grain tart/orange aroma. Light mouth feel decent carbonation. Earthy banana taste with gains on the last end.

dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Pours opaque pale orange with typical hefeweizen style head, great retention. Aroma is more tart, earthy, and apple-y than the traditional hefe aroma but banana and clove are still part of the character. Tastes a bit old; very grainy with little banana/clove character, somewhat toasty and biscuity. Body is light, frothy, active carbonation, grainy clovey finish. Overall, a bit weak.

cheap (3940) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2011 Mine is simply called Grieskirchner Weisse not Jörger. Looks a little hazy and more yellow than a witbier. Smell is a little aged lager. Fairly light on the palate. Even keel flavors that border on old but not quite get there. During the session gets more friendly. Somewhat unique tang in this one, just a tad tart. Some fine CO2 in the vision and on the tongue but fades almost instantly. Not your typical hefe has some of that old american lager flavor in there. Very little banana spice if any. Doughy something finish. On the label it says wit bier but yes, this is more like a gentle hefe.

drdisque (504) - Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Pours cloudy pale gold. Aroma is strong and of grain. Flavor is mostly all grain with an effervescent and slightly bitter finish. Light mouthfeel, even for a Weisse. Unexceptional, but at only $2 for the bottle, I’m not regretting it.
