Solid looking hefe, cloudy pale yellow with a tint of orange, large puffy white head that sticks around, hardly fades at all and lacing in lots of strings and spots. Smell is subdued and a little light for a hefe, but what's there is quite complex with a dullish lemon and sweet wheat grain front with lots of herbal things playing in the background of grasses,clove, and spicey yeast. Taste is alot more of the same, very mellow and even balance of dulled lemon and wheat grainy malts, very fresh with a nice herbal flower sense and very mild playing hops. Everything seems softer then I like in a hefe, needs to be a bit more pronounced in flavors for me, but the herbal quality, which I liked alot, is what kept me drinking this, its delicate and softer approach is nice in that respect. Lighter then medium body with a lightly playing crispness of lemon zip and sweet wheat with a nice soft texture which makes for some very easy drinking on this stuff. Not bad at all, a bit more body and flavor and it would have me hooked.

From a bottle. I didn't notice much of an aroma after this was poured but the appearance and the taste made up for it. Very pretty cloudy orange-amber in the glass with a few visible "floaties". Man, look at that head build--and it sticks around for a long time, too. Taste is very nice with plenty of cloves & banana to satify my taste buds. Great mouthfeel as well; about the "creamiest" beer I've ever had. Very yummy.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2005 Gold-orange and lightly hazy with a thick, tight white head. Aroma of black pepper, oranges, and crackers. Tangy citrus flavors and wheaty body. Actually it’s too much citrus tang and not enough depth of flavor. An average bottled hefe.

I had this beer on draught, it was cloudy with a slight white head that disappeared quickly. Has a fruity aroma and it tasted nice and refreshing. A great summer beer. Nice subtle notes of banana and clove. Not bitter at all, quite smooth with a mellow yeasty fruitiness. A nice balanced example of a weisse beer, though there are much better out there.

Hazy golden yellow with a fluffy head. Fruity outdoors aroma, apples, lemons. Began slightly sweet and breadlike, turning citrusy with a background sourness. Smooth tangy finish. I just love this style when it is right, full of flavor and easy to drink. Should have bought two.

Hazy golden yellow brown with medium sized short lasting head. Mild sourdough yeast and fruit with hint of sweet floral nectar honey and passion fruit. Smooth filling low carb body. Excellent mild citric sour balanced by fruity esters, flowery and honey flavours. Lightly acidic and spicy bready yeast finish.

Bottle. Nice example of a Hefe. Poured golden and hazy with a massive white head, just like the hefe's that I've had on draft in Germany. Fruity, spicy, wheaty nose with lots of citrus and yeast. Flavor is sweet and spicy with a pronounced lemon tang and smooth finish. Medium body with plenty of carbonation to give that refreshing summer taste. Enjoyable!

One of the best gardenbiers, nothing like it on tap, bottles are good too, but taps rule!

Bright and hazy gold colour. Aroma of clove and citric fruit. Big banana notes in the flavour, with a hint of bubblegum and lemon. The finish is a little short, but otherwise, it's a great brew.
