(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?

harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle at Pigs Ear 2014 with a sandwich. Hazy cloudy dirty gold with lasting off white head. Yeast clove banana aroma. Ripe banana. Boy thats nice. After some ales to have a fresh german hefe. Decent spicy hop finish. It’s an odd hefe. Some spice some ripe banana some depth and character. But a huge drinkability as well. I think very interesting almost cerebral hefe. I liked it enormously. It stretched me. Like having an intelligent conversation with someone that pushes your knowledge and experience. Yes. Good.

Tastes like a traditional Hefe. Dark golden color. Very simple beer. Poured in large pint glass with minimal foam ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,5l Flasche. Stimmiges Weizen; gute Abstimmung im Geschmack zwischen Hefe und Weizenmalz.

tmoreau (2559) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2014
On tap at the Chicago Beer Society’s Umpteenth Annual Picnic, and self served to a clear, plastic shaker showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a decent layer of soft white head froth, and fair cling to the light lacing. The nose was banana, some additional esters as peach & orange, and light, spicy phenols as clove. Light to medium bodied, with almost too much liveliness to the carbonation, the taste added low bitterness, and slight tartness to the crisp finish. A refreshing, quaffable Hefe.

chinchill (2128) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 24, 2014
From bottle at the 2014 German Bierfest (ATL). Hazy light amber with a decent head. Light body with crisp medium plus carbonation. Light clove, typical banana, and high tartness for style. A pretty good mix of flavors but would prefer more malt and less banana.

HonusWagner (1598) - Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2014
A pretty typical Hefeweizen with the expected German estery characteristics and light sweetness. Banana flavor not as pronounced as I usually prefer, but good enough beer.

villevav (221) - FINLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Samean appelsiininkeltainen, tiheä pysyvä vaahto, hieman sitruksinen, hiivainen ja vehnäinen tuoksu. Miellyttävä raikas ja hieman makea suutuntuma, ei katkeruutta. Maussa sitrusta, purukumimaisuutta, vehnämallasta, hiivaa. Erittäin hyvä olut. Lyhyt jälkimaku, täyteläinen, kermainen suutuntuma.

EyeAmBaldman (309) - Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Pours a cloudy yellow with a nice white, soapy head. Aroma is fruity, with bananas and clove. Taste is fruity, a tad citrusy but not hoppy. Lemons on the tongue as we’ll. This is a pretty good Weissbier.

BillWyce (740) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Draft at Bru in Philadelphia. Pours a cloudy straw color with a small, thin white head. Lemony, grassy aroma with some yeast and black pepper. Body is light-to-medium, somewhat fizzy, with a brief, dry finish. Lemony flavor with black pepper and a light grassy note.
