nathanvc (200) - 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.

Hazy amber beer with a white foamy head. Bready banana aroma. Flavour has the same qualities Banana, doughy bread, a hint of citrus hop. Sharp on the tongue. I could drink this all day.

eunck (138) - Hamburg, Hamburg, GERMANY - MAR 28, 2016
A brewery with really good beers, but this one doesnít stand out for me. I suppose itís well done and might be really good for fans of the German Hefeweizen style, Iím simply not one of them. The beer is very style typical with strong banana and clover aroma on wheat background with average bitterness and decent palate.

cervmagpt (647) - PORTUGAL - MAR 8, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 10A). Bottle 50 cl - Batch 09:30. AROMA: predominant aroma of clove followed by banana, with a slightly sweet wheat background. APPEARANCE: dark gold to light ambar color and hazy. large of-white head with good retention. TASTE: predominant phenols with notes of clove, followed by esters of banana with a wheaty background. low bitterness with a semi-dry finish. PALATE: medium body with a fluffy sensation. medium-high to high carbonation. OVERALL: a nice and traditional german weissbier with all the style characteristics.

pbeer (5) - - FEB 28, 2016 does not count
Pint bottle cold poured into wheat glass. Cloudy amber appearance typical of style. Two finger head that dissipates rather quickly with little to no lacing. Nose of banana, wheat, vanilla and various other fruits and spices. Tastes very bold typical of style. Definitely would buy again reminds me of Schneider no 7 and Ayinger Hefe. Although those are better in this, my first impression, it's still very good.
