Not sure why the low rating. This was good Wheat beer! It is now my wife’s favorite! Pours a cloudy dark straw color. Aroma was faint. Nice white head that lasted. Taste was mild and was most refreshing. Pleasant after taste. Can’t wait to drink this on draft in Germany!

Chopper925 (200) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle. Hazy golden yellow, big, lacing head. Aromas of banana with a hint of yeast. Taste is well balanced, sweet with low bitterness. Malty, banana aftertaste. Rather flat carbonation with medium texture. Nice sweet Weizen, enjoyed it.

The head on this baby kept growing after I poured it into the glass, overflowing and generally making a mess. The body is slightly hazy and gold in color. The aroma is warm biscuits and maybe a blade or two of grass. (Hefeweizen?) The flavor is much the same, only mildly bitter, and has a drop of honey in it. (Hefewizen? I swear the bottle reads "Leikeim Helle Weisse.") I’m not sure what I’m drinking, but it fails to impress. Except for the head.
