NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2007
Yeast, chemical-like solvent aroma that sourt of scrubbs the nostrils, banana is present but mild. The body is a cloudy yellow and holds a lasting, fuffluy, white head that is a full two fingers thick. Rich grains and banana in the fore. Fairly dry and lower in flavor concentration than many classic Hefe’s like Paulaner, Tucher and others. Seems to be much more carbonated than other hefes too. I sort of like it, but I am sort of put off too.

The taste isn’t quite as complex as others of this style, but this is still a pretty solid Hefeweizen.

detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2007
Pint on tap @ the Bridge House, SE1. Cloudy yellow body, strong head and lacing. All the hallmark hefe flavours that I won’t bore you with. Its strength is its exceptional smoothness. With out doubt the easiest Hefe I’ve had to drink - velvety orangy blossom sweetness, heavily carbonated but it retains its effervescence so well. Its like drinking liquid silk. If you see this beer on tap make sure you try it.

Compared to other hefe’s, this one came up milder in the banana and spice. I throughly enjoyed this beer.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Tried this in Turkey at the enlisted club. Sweet banana, and yeast are very present on the nose. A solid hefe with some nice banana light spice and a great yeast balance. Not bad, but awesome considering the country I am in.

nick76 (4170) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 The aroma is yeasty, malty, wheaty, and somewhat floral with a subdued banana smell. The appearance is great with a nice FIVE finger head and hazy gold color. The flavor is good with all the elements from the aroma and just a small bitter bite up front. It is dominated by malt with a little bit of molasses and spice near the finish. It does have what seems to be hops but they are subdued. The palate is a little thin but OK for the style. It doesn’t have enough banana or bubble gum to smell like a Hefe should but it is a great tasting beer.

ogivlado (5539) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 28, 2007
Bottled(500ml). -Pours a honey yellow coloured with medium sized white head and sweet wheaty nose. The aroma is light malty, sweet wheaty and fruity (orange, banana) with notes of sweet corn and yeast. Lots of sediment at the bottom. Drinkable but boring.

ALLOVATE (2339) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2007
Aus der flasche from an off-license up Münchener Straße, Frankfurt-am-Main, Germany (July 2006). Second last brew of my world tour of Europe. Back at our Hotel Europa, in between knocking back plenty of Exports, this one definitely passed the ’test de la quaff’. It pours tawny, a dullish deep gold, hazy but not cloudy with sparse, hastily rising bubbles lifting up a mountain of loose foam that receded back to a web of off-white that adhered well, mucking up the sides of my now sodden glass. Wheaty aroma, on the dry side, a small, scaled waft of banana and sourish malts, too much CO2, a little pepper. Doesn’t do much for invites, the flavour, though, more than makes up for it. Big, blast of fine effervescence upon the palate stands tall upon its reasonably light body. Sweet bubblegum upfront, some toasted wheat malt, a little banana leans into sour, slightly acidic malts as it moves backwards. Big peppery spice aids in drying out the palate. Works the saliva well, cloves in there as some very pale, tart wheat-malt flavours and sadly that annoying plastic ’clap’ that sees to just offer more in your average Hefe-weizen. Finish has more sour malt, a clean, non gluggy length that is also generously spicy. It is all clear on this one, just a simple, sourish wheat beer that went down like a fine glass of spritzig wasser. Good ’til the end. (50cL, 30/09/06)

On tap. Poured a nice translucent golden yellow with a moderate head. Not much in way of aroma, but had a slight acidic note amongst the lemon, orange and banana tastes. I thought it was quite good, and IMO needs more exposure.

A decent hefeweizen with a somewhat acidic flavor and light to medium body. Nice, not great. (from bottle)
