This is a good hefe. Nice cloudy dark orange color with average hefe head. The nose is a bit spicy (almost like they used belgian yeast, but not quite) with notes of esters and some citrus. The esters aren’t quite as strong as in Schneider Weiss, but this is still one of the more flavorful hefes I’ve had.

This beer has a beautiful foam with a dark orange colour. The aroma is fruity (banana). The flavour is quite sweet and the aftertaste a little bit short and flat

Big thick head over bright golden, slightly cloudy colored pint. Just smelling it brought back long lost memories of my 3 year stint in Gemany. Big bready, yeasty taste that seems dry on the roof of my mouth, and citrusy on the tongue. Thick and refreshing...the memories.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy amber color, decent milky head with nice lacing. Aroma is strong with malt. High in carbonation, which resulted in a very tangy, bubbly mouthfull which I found to be distracting. Flavor has a sweet start, but finishes with a metallic, alcoholic ’hollowness’. Still a very decent wheat, and I don’t regret buying a 6-pack, but I don’t think I’ll buy another one.

Although it has an interesting fruity aroma, I didn’t really care for this. Actually, it is pretty boring.

Cloudy yellow color with a thick head and citric (pineapple) aroma. I find German Wheat beers to be a little on the sweet side for my tastes.

A very solid weisse. The bottles always end with a slightly dry bite which makes me rank Paulaner ahead of this. Still a great beer on a hot summer day.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Full head and extremely cloudy yellow. Aroma has an exceptionaly strong wheat presence. Taste is too much for me and has a thick finish. One of the best wheats I’ve had just not a big fan of this style
