Bottle, 5.4%. Distinct banana aroma. Cloudy orange colour. Nice, stable, big creamy white head. A little citric flavour with some banana. Has a little plastic and some rough bitterness. Good mouthfeel, and a high carbonation which suits this beer.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2007 Hazed dark and strong yellow color with pieces of yeast diving inside my 500ml Paulaner weizen glass. Cool! This beer brings a little bit of Europe inside its bottle! Huge beige head
Bready, sweet and fruity aroma. Sweet flavour with banana, wheat, yeast and malts. Pleasant fruity aftertaste. Good price!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A cloudy, orange gold coloured beer with a thick, frothy white head. A typical wheat beer aroma of cereal and tropical fruit, bananas and mangoes in particular, then spicy, but also a little musty. The taste is dry and wonderfully fruity, bananas and mangoes, with a yeasty yoghurty flavour finish with a clove spiciness.

Tap. A nice, lighter hefeweizen. has the aromas and flavors of bananas and bubblegum. Pours with a nice yellow color and is quite refreshing. Finishes with a pleasant mouthfell, better than its rating score indicates in my mind.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Picked up case while I was in Germany last month.
Pours a very hazy, murky orange/copper with a two finger head that fades sowly to a thick cap, leaving behind a thick sheet of lace.
Smell; bananas, cloves and wheat are all there as they should be in a good Hefe-Weizen. There’s also a nice spiciness in the nose that I’m really digging.
Taste; ripe bananas, cloves and wheat. The spiciness that I liked in the nose comes out just as nicely in the flavor. I don’t know to describe the spices other than slightly peppery. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and definitely on the creamy side, and I find this to be very drinkable.
I picked this up on the recommendation of a local that started talking to me about beer as I was browsing the selection of Hefe’s. I’m glad he talked me into this one.

Pours dark hazy golden with a fully receding off-white head. If you have a bottled version, make sure to give it a roll on the table. In mine the yeast had settled completely, and clear weizen is not hefe-weizen! Loses a few appearance points for poor head retention. Aroma of banana, clove, and sweet yeast, a near-perfect weizen aroma. Taste is sweet yeast, notes of banana and a hint of clove, and a finish of crisp wheat and plastic. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively carbonation. A solidly made, enjoyable hefeweizen. I’m beginning to think that this style needs open fermentation for an explosive ester quality. Or maybe this was just an old bottle??

Draught@Frankfurt am Main airport.
Orange color with shades of amber, steady creamy head. Banana and wheat in the nose but also aroma showing unclean tap. Foamy mouthfeel, also crisp in the finish. Medium-bodied. Banana, fruity flavors. All good elements of wheat beer are there but lacking somehow character. Must be rerated from the bottle.
