I think this is the best looking beer in a glass. Banana, clove and sweet aroma. Big foamy white head . Flavor is sweet, wheaty, and a touch spicy. Extremelly smooth and refreshing.

On tap. Cloudy ochre gold with a fat white head. Popping out of the mug, even. Slightly heavier bodied than I can remeber from any other hefeweizen. Mild flavor with a bit of tanginess and even a bit of acidity. Very fruity. Not too bad, even though I dislike the style in general. I could have another round.

Typical hefe nose, but a little too light - also smells a little like a clogged drain. Cloudy orange color and a low tight head. Some spiciness in the middle and a grassy finish. Thinish and a watery finish. Not the best hefe, but decent.

Bottle. A hazy golden color with rising bubbles and a foamy white head. The aroma has citrus, coriander, wheat, and candy. Lively in the mouth with a touch of vanilla with the wheat malts.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2007 A standard German wheat. A great banana/spice aroma in a hazy gold beer with a large white head. Delicious wheat flavors and mouthfeel. One of the better wheats you can buy.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Medium gold color, slightly hazy. Enormous head. Aroma is yeast and malt, with a touch of rye. A medium bodied weisse. Malts are pronounced for a German Wheat. Some of the banana and clove flavor thing going on, but there is some fruitiness and there is a very definite rye spiciness as well. Very smooth. Very tasty. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is very slightly sweet.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Excellent German Wheat - fits the profile well. Frothy white head with a good amount of lacing. Orange, unfiltered, cloudy appearance. Sweet banana undertones with a hint of spiciness - possibly cloves - that presnts itself halfway through which is a tad bit distracting. Strong to the finish. Overall, impressive.
