3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2003 A very strong contender. The clovish(?) presence in the third quarter of the profile detracts from the taste a bit. That said, this brew is still an absolute must have. Aroma is decent. Appearance is one of the best I have ever seen in any beer. It has an excellent cloud... and the yeast pour only enhances it. Head is compact and a legitimate half-finger all the way to the bottom of the glass. It's overly exhuberant at the pour, but settles down quickly. Lace is moderate but head magically regenerates with each swig. Fantastic. Flavor on the front end is excellent and drives the beer. Late-middle "essence" detracts a bit from the overall profile. Not a problem though. If you see this brew, buy it. Just make sure you remember where you bought it from.

Yes this is straight down the middle. Fruity without many hops. Just average.

Not bad. A fairly straight-down-the-middle German Weiss. Banana taste, but not much spice.
