4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Pours a solid yeast filled golden cloudiness of wheat juice. Huge fluffy white head. Gigantic banana bubblegum aroma. So far, it’s a monster of a hefe! Sweet creamy texture. Light medium bodied, very well balanced. Light hint of bitterness. Some banana flavor, nice wheat. Very impressive.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Bottle Barn. Hazy golden color with a nice white head. Aromas of banana and spice. Yea. Near medium body with frothy spritzy carbonation. It’s just a bit watery, but the flavor of banana is firm, and there’s some grain and decent clove. Definitely an ok hefe. Goes a bit astringent in the finish.

Bottle from varirty pack from Big Lots!. Hazy golden straw color on the pour. Aroma is strong on the wheat and yeast. Good deal of spiciness as well. Dry grainy flavors. Not nearly as sweet as the aroma. Decent drinker.

Drinking from a bottle of Miltenberger Helles Hefe Weizen: It poured a hazy straw body with a huge rocky head that left thick rings of lace. It had a wheaty aroma with lemon, clove,and banana in that order. Spritzy mouthfeel. The strong lemon presence combined with the carbonation made itseemsoda-like until banana, bubblegum, and clove joined in. Pretty refreshing brew.

11.2 oz bottle. As others have stated, this is the Miltenberger Helles Hefe Weizen. I’m not big on Hefeweizen usually because of the citris tartness, but this is mild on that, smoother tasting with only a touch of lemon, banana and yeast. This is a hefe I could like.

Bottle. Pours a very cloudy hazy straw yellow, fizzy white head, with a nice film sitting on top of beer. Coriander aroma, grainy, some zest. Spicy touch, coriander, hazy wheat, citrus in the finish. Tasty, simple, drinkable, and not bad.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2009 The aroma has incense, wheat, banana, and cloves. The appearance is hazy gold with a large head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s a good hefe.

I don’t see Kalt-Loch anywhere; mine’s a 4-pack of 330 ml Miltenberger Helles Hefe Weizen brought over by Bavaria Imports. Brags of a cold-track system to keep it fresh, and it seems to be, but is still affordable. Looks like a hefe, fluffy white head and all. Smells of banana. My gripe is that it is overly tart, dominating any banana or spice. Kind of light as well. Still pretty good. I’d chill it more than usual.
