Honey colored with a thick creamy head that does not dissipate completely and leaves nice lacing on the glass. Yeasty cookie dough aroma with a hint of banana. Yeasty, herby, banana, slightly acidic taste. Well balanced; delicious.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2012 Bottle (BB Sep 12). Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy light to medium amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with light notes of gum and pepper. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Not much going on in the nose. Decent enough balance. Forgettable. The color of an ur-weisse (this used to be plain yellow before the Paulaner take-over), but lacking the character.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2004 Yum, yum, give me some. A banana split in beer form, not as spicy as some weissen I've tried. Perfect with food, a great head, and overall a refreshing beer, especially for stout fans like myself.

As all reviewers say, incredible head on this one. Flavor is pleasingly crisp, with loads of the expected citrus and banana. The finish is lacking something, but still quite refreshing.

Yuck! It smells like the ethanol factory down the road from my apartment. Overly yeasty. Tastes like over-ripe bananas with too much carbonation. This was very gross. Avoid!

I do not like this beer at all. I’m more of a dark, bock, person. But the aftertaste on this could kill a small animal.

Drink this as it should be served; a tall weizen style glass and don’t forget the lemon wedge. Goes great with breaded pork chops and German noodles!
