2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was sort of bland, and overly hopped for a Hefe-Weiss... unless by Premium they meant Hoppy. I wasn't really impressed iwth it.

WOW! Pours a cloudy blond with a tall, firm white head. Nose is spice, banana, wheat, yeast and some clove. The taste expands on these aromas and is perfectly rounded. Not overdone or underdeveloped. Smooth lightly spiced finish. Great hefeweizen!

If you could use this of an example to others on what a hefe is suppossed to taste like then this would be my choice. The aroma and flavors just explode from the bottle. Lots of fruits, your typical banana variety. Clove is prevelant also as expected. I like it because it is not over the top and the flavors are right up front for you.

Huge banana esters, massively yeasty with hints of clove and bubblegum. This is fine textbook hefeland with nothing missing. Big bodied and refreshing. Vanilla reveals itself in the long thick aftertaste. There are some better hefes out there, but this is just a perfect example of the style.

A great one. This is in the top class of beers I ever had. Vanilia in the flavor smooth and semi sweet. This one also has very strong wheat charteristics. It is slightly thicker than some other but is refreshijng and easy to drink. Looks and smells great.

A classic standard German Hefeweizen. Quite yeasty, filtered and sour. A bit spicey end.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not one of my favorite Weissbiers although much better on draught than bottled. Typical appearance of the style, cloudy golden body with foamy rocky head. Head dissaptes rapidly on this one. Aroma is steady spiciness with clove and yeast out front. One of the most effervescent of wheatbiers, really high carbonation and super crisp. Flavor is wheaty and yeasty with subtle spiciness. Not bad but so many are better. The Dunkel is far better.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big, lasting head. Cloudy, straw yellow appearance. Fruits and spices in the aroma. Taste was medium-bodied, with a hint of lemon among the other yeasty contributions. Smoothness develops a little later as it warms.

How can I differentiate this from other good weiss biers? Not sure really, but also good to know that it is in the company with many good ones, having those elements I desire with just a tad more malt riding in front with an ever so slight bit more sweetness before the sour and the banana, clove, etc. Long day and that might contribute to my wanting a beer and letting judgement go easy. Or perhaps it is in fact mighty decent.

The first time I tried this one a few months ago, it was obviously clear that I bought an old, out-dated bottle of skunked beer. Now, this time around things seem much better. Subtle bananna aroma, but not overpowering. The taste is smooth, but not too sweet or too spicy. For those used to American micro "hefes", this may be a departure. Otherwise, it's not too bad.
