3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tastes like a typical wheat beer, maybe not quite as fruity in the finish. This was the 1st German beer that I've had in a while that didn't have that slightly skunked-German beer taste (coincidentally, it's in a brown bottle - not the typical green as with many German beers).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy yellow pour with a very nice head. Yeast, citrus, and wheat spring from the aroma. Well balanced, no lemon needed in this glass. Some banana in the taste as well as some spice. A pretty good Hefe! On tap at the Beer Sellar in Knoxville, TN.

The pour revealed a nice light golden colour, very cloudy though since it is unfiltered...Yah?
The initial scent was of sugar candy and maybe some maple sugar with a touch of citrus. The head was excellent and thick for most of the beer. In the first taste I could taste the small amount of maple flavour. from what I don't know?!
Mild to medium wheat flavour.
Very smooth though,even the finish seemed to disappear gradually with no change in taste.
Very good, will be having again!

looks like a wheat beer should: light golden color, and a little cloudy. nice foamy head. typical hefeweizen nose of banana and citrus and spice. mild body very smooth, and a semi-dry finish. a great representative of the style!

Very nice. Good cloudy, yellowy-orange color, with a nice nose of bananas and citrus. Very soft and smooth on the palate. Very refreshing.

This was a very nice brew altogether. Nice and wheaty, but a little high on carbonation. Great flavor and palate.

Import Bottle. I've enjoyed this as a draft a few times, so how does a bottle taste after a long journey? Quite the same. I'm enjoying this as a "commuter speacial" (out of the bottle in a brown paper sack on the train). Good spicy weiss smell, actually a tad understated. Cloudy body. Full banana and clove taste, with a hint of lemon. A nice little head works up in the bottle. And a fine, playful effervescence on the tongue. A fine, fine beer.

At the bottom of the 16.9 oz bottle it simply said "Weisse" - the Weisse labels shown in the pics here all have another word in front of the "Weisse", but judging by the deScriptions, I think I have the right one. The bartender poured the first 2/3 in a normal fashion... then he put the bottle down on its side, rolled it back and forth, poured more, and repeated that procedure 3 times (in order to mix all of the sediment into the glass (which was a 16.9 oz Franziskaner glass). Golden yellow - Incredible head - down to the last mouthful, there was atleast a half inch head - continuous stream of micro-fine bubbles - wheaty aroma (slightly lemon) - pleasant wheaty taste - very nice indeed
