Hey, am I in Bavaria? Nice hefeweizen nose, hazy pale orange color, big head. Right banana wheat taste, clovey and spicy end. Full body, rich and classy.

I was really impressed by this wheat style german brew. smelled strong of florals, and citrusy. It had a very orange, citrus color too. Iím not dissapointed in the taste at all. Not to much wheat in the taste. Mostly sweet and simple, but not overpowering with sweetness. Medium-bodied. I loved this beer. The best german wheat iíve had yet. I would definitely recommend to others.

(draft) There arenít many hefeweizens that I can say I actually liked. This one I liked. Sweet and fruity, with none of the citrus that usually ruins this style for me. Yummy.

Iíve had plenty 1 liter mugs of this cloudy beauty. A true session beer at 5.4 percent, the flavor is wonderful. Hints of banana and the wanginess that I love in a good German style wheat.

Pouris hazy yellow/gold with not much of a head. Aroma is cloves with a little citrus, and the taste is the same. Not overwhelming like some german hefes. Very drinkable.

Draft - very fruity aroma. Traditional look of a German hefe - cloudy with a medium gold body and white head. Flavor of some malt and huge banana notes. Spritzy and well-carbonated. Nice overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I ordered this without the lemon wedge at the Hofbrauhaus in Newport. I think it is a little odd that the HB brand concept chose Newport KY for a franchise, but who am I? Back to the beer. Very cloudy butterscotch color with a rocky white head and a strong yeast nose. Some clove sharpness with a tangy citrus bight and an almost lactic acidity. Finish was of yeast and wet cardboard. I'd get the dunkel instead.

Somewhat unusual tasting (even for a wheat beer), Munich Weizen is just an average beer by me.
