(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?

BillWyce (698) - 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.

generallee08 (534) - New York, USA - JUL 11, 2014
The body has an orange like beige colored body with a creamy white head. This head is extremely thick and long lasting which makes for some good lacing on the glass. The aroma has some typical banana peel notes with some mild clove, citrus and light hops in the background. Its medium body has all the good dry wheat, fruity yeast with notes banana, dry spice and a hint of barley grain. The hops add a light bitterness and some dryness to the rather snappy finish. Its active carbonation keeps thing light, lively and refreshing.

drdisque (504) - Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Pours cloudy deep gold (more orange than most hefes). Light dough ester aroma. Flavor is Light and wheatey with little depth of flavors. Some banana in there. Tasty but a bit too bland and definitely unexceptional.

500 ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium orange colour with an average, creamy, long lasting white head. Aroma is sweet with notes of banana, fruit and light yeast. Sweet flavour with banana and citrus leading to a dry wheaty finish. Medium body, creamy texture with soft carbonation. Disappointing.
