Huge white head. Cloudy orange colour. Fantastic sweet and intense wheat aroma. Excellent fruity taste and a mild palate. Wheat beer at its best.

From a really small brewery in North Munich, one of the best Hefeweizen I’ve ever tried, really hard to find, but definitely worth the work...

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2002
Hazy lemon-orange with a huge thick creamy rocky head. Condition is much lower than most bottled weissbiers. Big fruity banana nose with yeast and phenols. More banan in the mouth along with a pleasing fruity esteriness. Finish is soft sweet and chalky. From the same town as Weihenstephan and almost as good as its bigger neighbour.

JonMoore (1845) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2005
Bottle. Hazy to cloudy golden colour with large, lasting head. Wheat and cloves in the aroma. Taste has cloves, banana and bubblegum in nice amounts, with some fruity ester. Some tartness in the finish. Nice full and frothy mouthfeel. A very good Weisse indeed.

BlackHaddock (3488) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2012
Third beer of my German tasting evening, 2nd July 2010. This brown half litre bottle was poured into one of my ’Franziskaner’ Weissbier glasses (the beer was best before 3rd Nov 2010). This is one of the best Hefeweizen I’ve had, very impressed: The beer had a great cloudy body, leaning towards the orange side of dirty yellow, the cracking white head was a stayer, lasting to the last drop of beer. The nose was all you’d expect, great waves of vanilla with banana esters following up behind, lovely. Nutmeg appeared in the mix too. Refreshing and very drinkable, the usual hefeweizen flavours combining to produce a very good beer and one I’ll look out for in future.

shrubber85 (7306) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 3, 2008
Bottle. Sweet banana, peach, wheat malt aroma. Cloudy orange amber with moderate head. Moderately sweet banana-orange and wheat malt flavor with moderate clove/grassy hops finish. A very nicely blended Hefe - not too sweet but with a nice fruity flavor.

tibicinoid (26) - Wyoming, USA - SEP 3, 2012
From: Worldwide Spirits, Germany Date: Best by 9/8/2012 Glass: Weihenstephaner weizen glass Huber’s hefeweizen includes classic elements of a German wheat beer (wheat malt, bananas, obvious yeast, some phenols, light citrus/herbs) in good proportions. While perhaps not as complex as a few others I’ve had, this is still a top-notch hefeweizen, and would easily be a solid go-to if it were available in North America. Pours a huge, fluffy, slightly off-white head made up primarily of small, dense bubbles: the resulting appearance is quite frothy, not quite meringue-like. Head retention is excellent, as I’d expect from any hefeweizen, and gradually leaves significant, large clumps of lacing along sides of the galss. Body is an opaque golden yellow color, with orange hues that are accentuated, along with pale yellow ones, in the light. Carbonation is active and visible, streaming along sides and center of glass. Aroma is very nice, strongly of ripe banana fruit, peel, and oil along with a sweet, yeasty bread scent as well. Not as complex as others, but still pleasant. Taste overall is of sweet, ripe banana fruit mixed with yeast, and some light bread. Front of palate detects diluted lemon rind, wheat malt, and banana fruit. Mid-palate of yeasty wheat bread, ripe banana fruit, hints of coriander, and spicy phenols. Back of palate has a slight chemical harshness, but otherwise composed of sweet, ripe bananas, bread, and yeat. Aftertaste is sweet, with ripe banana fruit mixed with yeast. Body is medium-bodied, with surprisingly soft, but palpable, carbonation. Closes very dry and with a residual sweetness that makes taking another sip quite desirable.

Dobre pszeniczne piwo bawarskie. Mała piana ale za to ta która się wytworzy utrzymuje sie do końca picia piwa. ładnie zmęcone i dość treściwe solidne piwo.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2004
Bottle. Love the Huber Weisse. First of all, i like the Polar Bear on the label, very cool. This is quite a yeasty, salty weisse. Clove and banana and wheaty (duh).. Soft, yet quite a rich flavour. Softer than most, yet fuller in flavour. This is a great wheat beer.
