The beer has a faint, but pleasing aroma of wheat grass and citrus that seems almost floral. The color is opaque and somewhat golden, being very reminiscent of honey. The foamy head is medium in body and persists lightly until it is all gone. It has a nice, light wheat flavor with hints of vanilla and citrus. It’s smooth and goes down well, with but little aftertaste. Excellent beer.

Creamy unfiltered golden colour. Aley smell. Great mellow taste...somewhat citrusey, like hooegarden!

The appearence is between tea and honey. Aroma of yeast and butter. The flavour is acid and starchy.

Wheat beers aren’t my favorite, but my German-beer-loving younger brother adores Hacker-Pschorr so we had some for Christmas. I’m still not a lager convert or a weisse-head, but I did enjoy the refreshing almost cleansing flavor and subtly fruity character.

Cloudy gold. Abundant head, even though Max’s Allegheny Tavern serves all their beer in mason jars. Pretty much a good solid hefe, better than many. Spicy.

Weird smell, but fruity spicey, raisen taste. Cloudy color.

RERATE: Well, now I’ve had quite a few more beers since I first rated this one. It’s good, but not quite the 4.5 I gave it the first time around. Wonderful, almost fruity beer. One of the best wheat beers I’ve ever tasted. Mouth feels clean (cool feeling) after drinking one of these.

Excellent beer. Light bodied, but very flavorful. Strong very-ripe banana aromas and flavors. Refreshing but subtle hop aromas. A bit of hoppy bitterness. Yeastiness is a plus. Poured with a perfect foamy head. Worth drinking just for the bananas.

Another German wheat beer with the aftertaste of bananas. Cloudy as hell when enjoyed on tap. Pleasant taste though better when tried in Germany!
