This was my very first weizen. I purchased a bottle of this at a specialty grocery in Durham NC in 1990. I always pick up a bottle whenever I find it. Very nice balance with a crisp finish and strong wheat character.

I generally divide the Heffe's into 2 categories for starters,banana or bubble gum. This is fruity banana, great head and appearance and a very pleasing finish! Right up ther with Weihenstephen as my favorite Heffe's

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2004
Hazy, deep golden lager with a small, creamy, off-white head. Fruity, spicy aroma. Bland, but well-balanced, citrusy flavor with notes of straw and grass. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. Not a world beater, but a quality brew and much, much better than the A-B World Select that I just poured down the drain.

In Germany they mix this with Coke to make a "Cola-Weizen" The local girls love it and there's no shortage of American Soldiers to buy it for them.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 13, 2004
50 cL bottle, wheat glass. Toasted light bread, wheat malt (M); strong banana/clove aroma (more banana than clove). Huge, frothy, creamy, white head is well lasting and sits on a very hazy and carbonated amber body. Medium-heavily sweet, moderately acidic flavor turns into a moderately sweet, lightly acidic finish. Medium-full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: what a rockin' wheat!

elsberry (87) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 10, 2004
a hazy orange shade, with an amber creamy head that lasts well. A very well balanced wheat and fruit smell, with an obvious yeasty overtone. Creamy mouthfeel, and a clean taste. This could become a favorite. Very refreshing and well brewed beer.

Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2003
An unclear brown-orange beer with a fine head. The aroma is of wheat with notes of oranges. The flavor is of wheat, citrus, oranges. A little light - but a good german wheatbeer.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 3, 2003
Looks like Schneider Weisse. Big fluffy head, with great retention. All banana nose. Apple, fruit, banana, citrus, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied, big clove finish. Delicate yet firm...yummy.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - OCT 29, 2003
Brown colour. Yeasty, banana taste; what you would expect from a Weizen, but somehow the taste is not very interesting. That does not mean that it´s not a well-balanced, drinkable Weisse. But somehow there´s is something missing.

jonas (5592) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2003
Yeasty citric aroma, not as strong nose as in other Weisse though. Murky red-brown, creamy head. Banana and vanilla on a bready background. No real dominant traits, which makes it pleasant to drink, but a bit uninterresting in the long run. Medium to light body and a slight honey aftertaste.
