Bottle. Bubblegummy, yeasty banana esters in the aroma. Clovey. Full mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft, salty finish, pretty decent German wheat, a nice surprise.

A fairly nice hefeweizen. A touch of citrus and yeast ... nothing unusual, unexpected, or exciting about it. Basic good and reasonable. Enjoy in the Summer with a lemon wedge.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 Overall a good baseline wheat. Maybe held higher in regard for those who prefer more of a bready flavor as opposed to citrus. I have had this beer a few times over the years and always been satisfied. +++ Sampled from a 16.9 oz bottle this beer poured a very cloudy medium tan-brown color with a medium sized white head. Although a little darker and browner than I am used to in a wheat beer it remained attractive none the less. The aroma was medium strength tangy citrus and had yeasty undertones. The flavor was pleasant with a definite wheat and yeast flavor with a mild citrus element. It finished with a mild bready taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, fresh sample. Largely yeasty aroma, some wheat malt evident, along with notes of banana, clove, honey, citrus and spice. Thoroughly hazy golden amber color, pouring a massive, fluffy white head of fine bubbles, the lace in thick sheets. Lightly malty start, progressing towards lightly tart citric fruitiness and with a refreshing, lightly bitter and acidic finish. Palate is fairly watery for the style, body is light-medium. Not spectacular, though certainly passable.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2006 Definitely a summer beer. Very light lightly fruity/grainy aroma and flavor. Some odd whiffs of peanut. Some honey/vanilla cakey flavors, as though it had had a protein drop. A bit tangy. Thinnish in the palate. Aftertaste is vanilla and lightly bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 9, 2005 Rerate Enjoyed it better this time around - lot of sweet biscuity notes <I >Original 2.8 Pours a murky, light yellow, almost specimen like pour, not appealing looking, sorry - little to no head. Yeasty aroma with a bit of banana to it. Flavor has some bubblegum notes to it with a bit of yeast. Way too thin mouthfeel for a German Hefe. Would be a good summer refresher though.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2011 April, 2004 Canned. Murky dull orange. Light and refreshing with a mild warming spice. One of the better canned beers I’ve come across. A good range of subtle flavours and aromas - malty banana with a little zip of soapy lemon. Softly pleasant. [3.4]
Nov, 2010 French supermarket. A pleasant wheat beer. Soft. Easy drinking. Drunk after the Marseille-Cassis half. [2.7]

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2008 (Bottled) Opaque orange with a large, quite firm and lasting head. Strongly banana-estery, sweetish and fruity aroma with hints of lemon. Banana-fruity, neutral, mildly yeasty flavor with cloves and a dryish, slightly acidic finish. Quite full-bodied without being sweet. Slightly fizzy carbonation. A perfecly balanced Hefeweizen with no faults. With a slight boost in complexity, it would be at the top of the style.
(Bottled, was 7-4-8-4-14=3.7) Opaque yellow/orange color with medium head. Fruity banana aroma. Very smooth, fruity, banana flavor. A well-made and enjoyable hefeweizen.

Slight citrus and malt. Plenty of yeast sediment. A decent white head. Slight skunk in smell and taste. This was pretty light for a wheat beer.
