(Best by 07/2010. Consumed 04/19/10. 25oz bottle) I always stay far away from the import aisle. German, Polish, and other countries’ ales and lagers have always turned me off, and have never seemed to stand up to an American micro. On a whim, I bought a $1.49 bottle of this. [A] Banana. Wheat. Bready pale malts. Quite grainy. Cereal. Light citrus fruity aromas. Good start. [A] Very bright, yet extremely hazy yellow. Beautiful smooth white cap that just sits and stares. Drippy lacing. [F] Wheat, banana, and fruity bubblegum qualities upfront. Doughy, yeastiness. There is a grainy/barley taste that shows up as well. Either way, it is a great, refreshing balance. Not overly sweet, if at all sweet. [P] Quite pleasant. A great, easy drinker. Very thin-bodied. You could say watery. But what are you looking for in a hefeweizen? Extremely light, crisp feel. No real hop bitter, which doesn’t hurt. Clean finish. No booze, either. [O] Really glad I gave this one a shot. For the price, I had nothing to lose. I’ve had Hacker-Pschorr before, but don’t recall it being as good as this German brew. Highly recommended to anyone. I’m not very fond of Hefes at all. Yet this was still satisfying. Seems like a great thirst quencher. I’d prefer more hops, but it still does the trick. 4.9% is just right. Why in the hell can’t I find a great AMERICAN micro hefe at this price point?

Hazy yellowish, thick white head. Yeasty banana aroma. Sweet banana candy flavour. Ok but a tad watery.

Bamsen78 (5003) - 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 (75) - 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 (6422) - 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 (6999) - 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.

BeerRenter76 (725) - Texas, USA - APR 16, 2016
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 (756) - 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.

stevoj (3839) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 29, 2016
Bottle from Bin 201. Solid hefe, pours out a slightly hazy golden with nice fluffy head, which fades quickly. Normal aroma and flavors of bananas, bubblegum and clove. With a bit of a rockier head, and more sediment, this might have been better.
