While certainly a good Hefeweizen, this is somewhat straightforward in its flavors. A bit citrusy, a little sweet, a little spicy, but not particularly strong in any of these areas. Definitely drinks well, and I’d certainly revisit it, but it’s not as flavorful as the best examples in the style.

Hanoi (504) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Nose is strongly barley with hints of grain as it pours. It settles into yeast and a sweet note of caster sugar. Very slight banana and cloves emerges; all a little bland. Taste is cream, banana, a hint of candy floss, slight cloves, banana milkshake, a little spice, cereal yeast. Mouthfeel is quite full but there is a thinness in the finish. It’s an alright beer, which has some strong notes, but it never seems to get out of third gear.

TedE (217) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2015
500ml bottle (says ’weisse") into glass. Beautiful banana aroma. Cloudy golden beer with solid creamy white head. Thin body but refreshing. Bitter/fruity finish. Good not great.

Best by 04.2014. Poured from a pint bottle into a weizen glass on 01.31.14. A: Orange. Opaque at top because of the yeast cloud. See through at bottom. 2 finger head. S: Orange, clove. T: Banana, orange, spicy clove. M: Creamy smooth. O: This is a Paulaner cousin. (Hacker-Pschorr and Paulaner are owned by Heineken). It has a bit more banana flavor than Paulaner’s hef, otherwise, it’s almost a clone. It’s a fantastic hef. The flavors are strong, which I prefer. Excellent.

A fairly average and uninteresting Hefe. Decent notes of banana, wheat, spices and bubblegum. Light and refreshing. Not bad I guess.

500ml bottle right out of the fridge. Aroma is mild and neutral. Color hazy honey-like rich deep yellow-orange. Taste is medium sweet with a touch of bitter. Full body, creamy, average carbonation, long finish. Delicious hefeweizen -- a classic.
