Berliinissä Cafe 100 Wasserissa 5/2016. Very tasty, fruity and refreshing wheat beer. A classic apparently.

drpimento (3128) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Yummm! Outstanding traditional Hefeweizen beer. Aroma and flavor have that traditional spicy clove, banana, malt, sweet-tart, thirst quenching thang. Wish it was distributed around La Crosse, Wisconsin again.

KeefOz (1537) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2016 BB 17 09 16. Poured a cloudy pale to medium amber with an enormous off-white dense foam head that retained well (diminished over about a five minute period) and laced poorly. Carbonation moderate to high and fine. Aroma of soft cloves and yeasty spice and not much else except maybe a slight hint of banana. Taste initially of cloves then this drowned by moderate strength and moderately sweet banana. Light to medium body. Soft, smooth, creamy and slightly dry with moderately sweet banana on the finish. Plain but nice.

This is what a Hefeweizenshould taste like, Old School. Not saying newer ones are not good, but if you can’t brew something ng close to this, stop tryi ng to reinvent it!

Fules (797) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 11, 2016
Nagy, tartós hab, szűretlen, borostyán szín. Citrusos, malátás-banános, búzás illat. Íze enyhébb, gyümölcsösebb mint a szokásos búzasöröké, de ízjegyeiben tipikus. Utóíze a kortyot viszi tovább, de a gyümölcs gyorsan lecseng, a búzasörös aroma marad még egy darabig. Nem sok test szorult belé, de nem vizes. Könnyed, frissítő, de az alkoholtartalma miatt csak óvatosan. Becsapós sör.

nathanvc (224) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAY 5, 2016
Pours hazy golden with an orange hue and a huge foamy white head. The aroma has malts, banana and other fruits, wheat, yeast and caramel. It tastes medium to heavy sweet with a light wheaty finish that gives it a bitter touch. Creamy mouthfeel, pleasant carbonation and refreshing. Better than, say, Erdinger, but not as good as a Paulaner.
