AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2012
A hazy amber beer with a propensity to grow a thick, leathery head. The aroma is mostly banana, clove, and other yeasty esters, with some caramel and grain from the malts. The taste is similar, with grain, caramel, and timid banana in the finish. Thin mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Picked up a single 500 ml bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota. Pours a semi-clear golden pale colored brew with a thick off-white head that has some good retention. Aroma of banana esters, golden grain malt, a hint of honey and a touch of clove. Taste is medium bodied with flavors of both banana, clove esters, a hint of honey, a touch of bubblegum and sour dough bread. Finish is semi-sweet with a banana ester and floral hop aftertaste. A solid German hefeweizen throughout.

Bamsen78 (5032) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle. Pours hazy straw with stable white head. Clear aroma of malt and banana, with notes of grain and yeast and touches of hops. Sweetish flavour of malt and banana, with notes of hops and grain. Sourish, grainy afteraste with malty hints. Not bad.

ozzatoadisback (85) - ITALY - JUL 29, 2016
Light orange colour, hazy, medium head (surprisingly low for a hefe) is quite dense, shows good retention and some lacing. Aroma of strong banana with a slight fresh herbal feel and some lemon in the background. Taste has soft wheat malts foundation (white bread), strong banana, a hint of lemon and underlying spiciness (clove). Dominantly sweet as obvious but not too much (average sweetness as per style i would say). Light to medium body, medium to high carbonation, easy and decently lively. Averagely good

MichaelAwesome (6448) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2016
Ein Weißbier, was zu überzeugen weiß. Nicht übertrieben bananig, dafür dennoch angenehm fruchtig mit einer sehr feinen würzigen Note, die man zumindest als süffig bezeichnen kann. Prickelnd, aber nicht übertrieben in der Perlung und zudem ausgewogen und ausbalanciert. Gute Sache.

onceblind (7313) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Hazy wheaty gold with a thin foamy cap. Lovely bready and sunshiney nose that’s pleasantly wheaty and golden, not too yeasty or fluffy, with a nice little touch of clove and very light near-green banana. Clean and surprisingly crisp flavor that’s wheaty, a touch German blonde, light clove, light bready banana, and pleasantly bright.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden big white head. Aroma of dough, earthy notes, clove, and fruit. Medium sweet taste. Medium body, a bit sticky texture, sweet smooth finish. Solid German Hefe.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a hazy orange-yellow color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head has a great level of retention, holding on for quite a long time before fading to leave a good showing of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is strongest of a coriander and yeast with a strong showing of bready aroma. Along with these smells comes a rather potent clove smell along with some hints of a candied sugar and a bit of orange. Taste – The taste begins with a nice clean bready taste mixed with a very yeasty and coriander flavor. The yeast and coriander grow even stronger as the taste advances and are joined by some other spice flavors of clove and some nutmeg. All the while, a light orange sweetness that is present upfront fades a bit, all while a light flavors of a candied sugar taste takes its place. In the end, with all the flavor transitions that occur and with a little bit of a doughiness and grassiness that develops on the tongue, one is left with a yeasty, and spiced bready taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the brew is rather chewy for an only 5.3 % brew with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. The thick body is rather nice for the bready and yeasty tastes and really accentuates them. A slightly higher carbonation may have made it slightly more refreshing, but even so, overall the feel was pretty well done. Overall – A not too sweet, but bready and heavily spiced (especially coriander) hefe. I actually rather enjoyed this one.

Originally rated on 9/3/08. Looked like a hefe, nice cloudy mid yellow body, not much carbonation but it left a little lace on my glass. The rest was un hefe like, hardly any regular aromas or flavorings, only a strange aftertaste. I think I got a bad one, so I might re-try this one day, but not soon

Cristobal37 (795) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 19, 2016
Watery weissbier. Some banana bread and sweetness from the yeast and wheat, but overall quite light on flavor. Silky with little to no citrus which I prefer but simple. 3 months past the best before date which might explain the loss of character.
