Very good hefe. The nose is strong of clove, lemon zest and banana. Very smooth and wheaty with lemon citrus and clove/banana notes.

Appearance: hazy medium gold with half a finger of white, foamy head shrinking to a thick collar. Aroma: wheaty, with notes of cereal, citrus, banana, and creamed corn. Taste: sweet and thick, with wheat, orange, clove, banana, bubblegum, and creamed corn again. Finish: a little zingy with carbonation and spice. Notes: Perfectly acceptable hefeweizen. Palate was thick and creamy, but there was a good dose of carbonation and spicy yeast to keep it balanced. On the sweet, corny side.

Location/Date:Bottle split with Dave on August 3rd, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a clear gold.
Aroma: Aroma of wheat mixed with the malt of a lager.
Taste: Wheat style but mixed with a cheap lager.
Palate:Light body.

Summary: This beer just was not very good for the style. Also, my first Austria beer.

Cloudy golden pour with a long head and sheets of yeast that slowly drop back into the drink. The taste is all Hefe: sweet wheat and caramel infused with banana and Topp’s Bubble Gum, a light citrus and spice overtone that moves to a carbonated bitter finish. Similar to many other examples of the style (which are just as well executed), but notable on its own merits.

dbarnold (1127) - 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 (1946) - 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 (243) - 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.

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.

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.
