3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. The pour was a medium golden amber with an average (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that dissipated at a good steady pace down to a very light film and a small collar, which did allow for some light streaky lacing.
The aroma was of a grain malt and a light musty yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), banana, pineapple and a touch of coriander.
The taste was sweetly acidic throughout and had a sweet-tart pineapple flavor early on, then a yeasty tart fruity taste slowly but surely took over with notes of banana and citrus and a light hint of spice making their presence known towards the finish. The flavor hung around for an average time after consumption with a tart fruity yeast flavor left lying on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was right in the middle of light and medium in body with a watery and slightly dry texture and a lively carbonation.
Overall an extremely flavorful brew, with great body and nice drinkable feel. I definitely see me drinking this one again...

Bottle from a bottle shop in Hamburg. Fruity smell with the typical wheat beer aromas like foam banana, also a light spicy aroma. Similar taste. Slightly sweet in the finish. Nice and very drinkable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy yellow with a hint of green and little white head. Aroma is soap (bubblegum?) Yeast and some light fruits. Taste is better: much carbonation induced sourness with a little fruity sweetness. Mouthfeel is spicy bubbly with medium body. Medium finish with more yeast. Overall a little worse than average. Not my favourite.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Maker: Weißbierbrauerei Hopf (Schörghuber), Miesbach, Germany ***
Beer: Hopf Helle Weiße (bottled, 500ml) ***
Style: Hefeweizen (cloudy wheat) ***
ALC.VOL.: 5.5% ABV ***
"Typical in its wheat beer aroma, this classic wheat beer has a slightly fruity taste, is golden yellow in colour and a light yeast haze, topped by a fine head. Its unique character is thanks to Hopf’s own pure yeast culture." [brewery notes] ***
Colour: Bright hazy yellow, with a big, fluffy white head. ***
Aroma: Lemon(!), clove, ripe banana. ***
Texture: Medium body, not fizzy at all, slightly oily indeed. Moderate carbonation. ***
Taste: Fruity at first, mildly sweet: Banana, lemon, sweetish yeast. Spicier towards the middle, still a bit sweet but lemony, too. Yeasty finish, only very mild bitterness, but a bit of refreshing sourness. Medium-long aftertaste of yeast and lemon. ***
Impressions: Eminently drinkable traditional German wheat beer with strong fruit and yeast flavours. Very smooth, but not devoid of character. Without a doubt one of the best Hefeweizens I’ve tried. Of course, wheat beers vary less in taste than other beer styles.

Taste is medium sweet malt and wheat, banana bread, bit fruity, lighter cloves, bready yeasty finish, light+ citric acid. Medium- bodied, average+ carbonation, bit creamy. Good one!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light aroma of wheat, banana, vanilla and some citrus. Pours opaque light golden liquid with a dense white head that damps the aroma quite a bit. Sweet taste with light sourness, the initial taste is pleasent with some light banana and fruity notes but the finish is kind of lemony sour and dry with some yeast and clove notes. Full, smooth body with average carbonation and a dry finish, high drinkability. Even though I criticized the taste, this is not a bad Hefeweizen at all, it certainly has a unique character, rather yeasty and not as wheat-intensive as a typical Hefeweizen. I’ll also have to give credit to the very thick, smooth texture and the light, honey-like colour of the beer.

Butelka 0,5l. Aromat z butelki piękny, goździki i trochę banana. Intensywny i rześki.Bardzo obfita piana. Piwo dość jasne, mętne. Ze szkła nadal świetny aromat goździkowy i bananowy, już nie tak intensywny, ale nadal bez problemów wyczuwalny. W smaku wytrawne, fenolowe, tutaj głównie banan. Przyjemny, bananowy posmak. Goryczka niska, ale zaznaczona. Umiarkowane nasycenie. Najlepszy hefeweizen jakiego piłem.
