maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Pale straw-colored, cloudy, a hurricane of bubbles balloon into a four-inch head. Mild aromas of yeast and horseblanket, tinged with banana, cantaloupe, and nutmeg/clove. Very, very soft banana and vanilla flavors, faint sourness. Initially creamy/fluffy palate ends with a watery, gatorade mouthfeel. Aftertaste is vaguely banana and coastal-community municipal water, salty and metallic. Overall boring, completely average in all respects; the alpine lacing was the only thing that stood out.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Bottle pours a cloudy yellow, large fluffy white head, good lacing, with minor carbonation.   Typical German Hefe aroma, banana, yeast, and cloves.   Typical flavor too... however this one isnt as robust as some others I’ve had (Paulaner, Ayinger, Weihenstephaner), but it is still tasty.   Decent body and mouthfeel.   Perhaps a good entry beer for someone who hasn’t had a German Hefe as I find this one a bit lighter than the rest.

TChrome (1448) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2004 Re-rate: Beer pours cloudy golden with massive egg white head. Aroma is pleasant banana and cloves. Flavor is light banana, wheat, and light spices. Not the greatest hefe, but good none the less.

SpringsLicker (3319) - Tennessee, USA - APR 14, 2004
Typical Hefeweizen in appearance, big long lasting creamy head, hazy deep yellow color. Aroma has the banana, yeast and malt as it should. I suspect mine was past it's peak as Hefeweizens reach and pass their peak quickly.

MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2004
Very large white fluffy head which stays for quite some time. Mirky yellow-orange in color. Smooth creamy flavor, but lacks a robust weiss component. Smooth finish. The fruity components are very subtle.

JPDIPSO (5153) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 31, 2004
Cloudy light golden color with a big wispy white head. Nice malt/spice aroma. Intermittent clove, lemon, bananas and vanilla work the nose. Light feel. the light wheat and barley flavors of "grape nuts". Sweet wheat finish. The trouble with this one is finding a fresh bottle.

firemedic713 (169) - Palm Bay, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2004
Cloudy, pale orange, creamy white head.Typical aroma of banana, sweet malt, yeast and clove. Tastes a lot like it smells. Pretty good hefe.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 25, 2004
Cloudy golden in color with a large rocky white head. Aroma of banana,sweet malt,bread/yeast and clove. Huge banana flavor with tangy wheat and bready yeastiness.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - MAR 23, 2004
Huge head over CLOUDY weizen. Pale. Nose of banana and desert. The alcohol was present in the taste. Yet this was incredibly drinkable. Its bitterness increased through the end.

aracauna (3352) - Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2004
Starts off nicely with an excellent appearance. The body is cloudy and dark gold and it is topped off by a perfectly white dimpled white foam. Lively carbonation feeds the head and keeps it from fading. The aroma is strong, cloves and vanilla ride about a faint banana (I prefer my bubblegum/banana esters bigger than this, but this is still nice). The flavor is a bit of a let-down after the looks and smell. Good wheatiness, a nice little bit of ripe banana in the back end, but not a lot else going on. It's tasty, but I still prefer Schneider and a few others. Now, if we could just get American breweries to start doing this style justice.
