Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2006
Aroma of pale malt and light fruit. It is lacking any banana, clove, or bubblegum - is this really a German hefeweizen? Relatively clear golden color, there is some yeast stuck to the bottom of the bottle that a thorough swirling could not dislodge, thin white head. Sweet malty flavor, some interesting English-style fruity esters. Medium body with moderate carbonation. If I had this in a blind tasting, I would label is a mediocre blonde ale, never would have guessed it was a weissbier. It is a poor example of the german hefeweizen style.

JK (5743) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Gold and clear, with a rocky, long lasting white head. Aroma of a lager; but a high quality lager; lacking banana, coriander, or citrus. Light sweet flavor with some wheat. Medium palate. Overall light and refreshing but lacks depth, palate, or complexity.

Very good hefe weizen. Nice banana clove citrus flavor. Head is nice and frothy and thick. Definitely an underated brew.

Nejhleader (1451) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2006
Had an aroma similar to a pale ale. Taste is rather uneventful, is a bit wheaty, but other then that not much going on here. Certainly now franziskaner.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2006
50 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Cloudy light amber colour with a great white head. Aroma of bread and wheat with hints of yeast. Flavour of wheat, banana, yeast and ends very smooth and nice, a really good hefe-weissen.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 1, 2006
In the bottle at the Hessen Haus during the 2006 Crescent Moon Beer Bus Trip. Pretty good hefe, but I failed to get all the yeast out of the bottle, so I’m sure it is usually not this clear. Gold with a big white head. Yeasty banana aroma. Flowery citrus flavor with a great balanced sweetness. Smooth finish without the residual ketones of many hefes.

Maybe its because this came in a 44-ounce stein, or maybe it was because I was at the Vegas Hofbrauhaus, but I thought this was a really great hefe. Pours cloudy gold with a massive white head. Wheaty and sweet aroma. The taste is very light and clean. No stickiness. Wheaty, yeasty, and sweet. I recommend having one, or four.

Bilzmoude (19) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Smells of citrus... kind of a bile-like aroma... in a good way! Stark white, creamy head that went away quicker than I had hoped. The color of a slightly cloudy, slightly orange pilsner. Very light forward flavors, with a nice, yeasty finish. The finish is probably the best part. Not incredibly complex... but crisp and easy to swallow.
