3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is the strangest Hefewiesen I have ever had. Perhaps it’s the alpine-style designation. It had quite a bite to it and was rather spicy with a hoppy finish. Missing was the creamy texture and subtly sweet aromas of banana and clove. Is this beer 1/3 pale ale? Not a bad combination. Refreshing and tasty. It had the cloudiness of a hefe with a small amount of residue in the bottom of the bottle. The head was small for a hefe. Plenty of lacing and retention. A surprising beer. I will buy it again now that I know what to expect. This beer does not fit neatly into any category.

Too clear for a Hefe. Decent banana aroma. Taste was just sweet and slightly rubbery. Pass.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy lighter golden color with white head. Wheat, yeast, and some light fruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with wheat and light fruit.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The beer pours with almost no head and, unless I’m sick and don’t know it, no aroma. That said, it’s smooth and easy to take big sips of, but it’s not special and it’s not memorable. A good beer to have a few of, but not worth the price I paid here in Pennsylvania for it and pretty weak overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from Capital Market. Hazy golden brown in color. Lightly sweet and fruity nose. Maybe a hint of yeast character, if that. Bready and a little fruity up front. A little sweetness to go along with a touch of yeast. Sippable beer. Not a really good German hefe.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pint pour at Razzals. Two pints actually. I don’t think this beer deserves the hate it gets. I find this to be very American however in the hefe world. Doesn’t have the heavy yeast or banana flavor, but the beer still tastes good. I say if it tastes good, it is good. Pours a thick looking peach color with a patchy head and lacing. Nice lemon aroma. Light beer with a ton of wheat and lemon flavor. I’ve heard of this being served with lemon, but it’s got plenty without. Very refreshing. I say, nicely done.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow gold body with a one finger frothy white head. The nose is showing some light banana and clove spiciness with a soft wheat and yeast undertone. The flavor is a little less estery and spicy than I prefer for the style, it’s much heavier on the malt and wheat flavors instead of being derived from the yeast. It’s a little heavy and clingy. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a slightly sticky finish. Not a great Hefe, a little too heavy and flabby

Not a great example of a german hefe. the citrus and malt kinda overpower the yeast, which does show itself as a banana-like aroma and flavor. body is overcarbonated as well. meh...

12oz bottle 1/20/15 (Courtesy of TerryR)-46° in Weizen Glass-Pours a murky yellowish orange with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, and slight banana. Taste of wheat, metallic, citrus, banana, and slight coriander. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad as there are better out there but this fills the gap.
