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!

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.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2007 Bottle.
Strong malty wheat aroma. Pours dark yellow with some light orange tinges and somewhat cloudy.
This had a nice yeasty taste to it that remained true to the unfiltered nature. Some "unfiltered" beers make me really wonder how unfiltered they are. This had a crisp wheat taste and did not have that bubble gum/cloying taste. In fact it was not terribly sweet at all, but had a nice clean medium body with some lemon on the finish. I really appreciate this beer, as it is the least sweet of the hefes Ive tried but still maintains an excellent flavor, balancing the malt, yeast and wheat.

Hazy amber color with huge frothy, mostly lasting white head. Excellent lacing. Light bodied. Moderate malty aroma, hint of lemon, banana, and clove. Citrusy and light spice on the palate, finished lightly sweet and moderately acidic. Clean and dry.

A beautiful German Wheat beer, cloudy, with a citrus start and citrus finish, a real nice head on this one. Half the fun is in the pouring. If you're looking to get relaxed in a hurry, the alcohol kick in Hacker-Pschorr Hefe Weisse is up to the task.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2004 My bottle just says "weisse" and not "hefe weisse". I think that it is the same thing though. Decent white head with good carbonation. Color of murky orange. Nice aroma of wheat, dry hay and cloves. Bit of orange in there also. Flavor is nice with a hefty helping of wheat and some malt. Finish is dry, fizzy, and a little bit chalky (probably from it being unfiltered). Bit of caramel as an aftertaste. A good quality wheat beer although wheat beer are not my favorite.
