2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from MoritzF. Clove in the aroma. Banana and yoghurt in the flowery flavor. Slightly herbal. There is some complexity in this beer, but it is not one of my favorites.

Dark, cloudy tan colour. Tart, sweaty aroma with brown sugar accents. Tart flavour, a little bit earthy, somewhat sweaty/footy. Fairly big-bodied example.

(bottle) Hazy pale orange colour with a big but diminishing foamy white head. Dusty light-sweet wheaty nose with the usual cloves and banana. Decent Bavarian Weizen-profile, but too low carbonated.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
An unclear orange beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet wheaty, and so is the flavor, but here notes of bananas mixes in. The end is slightly dry.

In the 0.5L bottle at the Huber Haus German Bier tasting. Hazy amber-orange in color with a small white head. Aroma of banana esters, but no spices. Flavor is yeasty and meaty with strong wheat taste. OK, but nothing special.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy yellow-orange beer; huge, very dense, fine & resistent off-white head. Rainwater, mopwater, cloves & bubblegum nose. Ouch! I hope this is the glass - but I fear not. Terrible off-taste, making me think of olives on brine or stale, oxydized olive oil, on top of banana and clove flavours. Betterfood cookies in the finish. Typical wheat slickness, oily feel. Long aftertaste with the above characteristics. Seen this one was presented to me by joss, and some of the other ratings, I fear there’s somewhat wrong with this particular sample.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2007 Bottled (BB 02/2006)
Hazy orange, big tight creamy off-white head. Strong wheaty banana aroma. Crisp, dry, lemony. A bit smokey. Good clean and balanced hefeweizen. Interesting to see comments about sweetness, this bottle certainly was not sweet. (7/3/7/3/13 3.3)
Re-rated draught@Hofbräuhauskeller Freising
Hazy orange-yellow color, good cloudy white head. Leather, bubblegum and lemon in the nose. Medium-bodied. Semi-dry, fruity with lemon-apricot flavors. Weak finish. Refreshing and drinkable, but not much character. (6/3/5/2/11 2.7)

Bottle, RBESG 2005 Grand Tasting. Cloudy brownish yellow colour. Typical hefe aroma of bananas and cloves, cloves are dominant. Typical hefe flavour, maybe a tad sweeter than many other hefes. Nice enough.
