3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
01.17.06 500ml bottle. Typical German hefe pour is clouded orange-golden with light and lingering tan head of loose froth. Aroma is inviting with mildly spicy clove and citrus hints mingling with an esthery sweetness and yummy yeast. The flavor is laid back moreso than expected but nonetheless very quenching with mild acidity (citrus, tart) and some bananas in breakfast cereal. Slick, yet tingly in its eff. I like that it’s mouthfeel is more asertive than many hefeweizens. How I’ve never had this beer until today is a mystery.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from the bottle at The Light Bar in Shoreditch (London), a bright cloudy orange with a large frothy head. A strong wheat aroma of citrus and banana, with hints of pepper. Smooth to taste and a good tanginess.

Pretty consistent year to year. Certainly better on tap, but still quite good in a bottle. Strong hefe flavors of banana and clove. The warmer the better on this one. Love the end of the glass.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light gold in color with a chunk head. Cloudy like a Texas lake. Aromatics included bananas, citrus, and possibly clove. Fairly full on hte palate. A good example of a traditional bavarian Hefeweizen.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bananas and citrus in the amroa. Pours an eggshell head, which swirls into the beautiful orange yeast. Cloudy, but not as much as most weizen. I break from the pack in that the taste is too thin. Almost watery, with no bitterness and a flat-cola aftertaste. I’ll drink a free one, but honestly, cheaper hefeweizen is usually better to me. Dont’ kill me :)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy orange/brown. Sweet with the typical banana & yeasty hefeweizen aromas. Very nice, could be a bit more full though.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can/Tap/bottle, whatever. For me this is the perfect weizen and one of the few beers that I actually prefer served from a can. Amazing rocky head on a dark golden hazy body. Aroma is full of banana, fresh bread and fruit (melon) leading to a lively palate showcasing sweet malt with clean, nutty wheat flavor. Phenolic but not over the top. Mouth feel is full, but carbonation is a bit unpleasant as with most weizenbiers - but nonetheless suitable for style. A beautiful brunch-companion.
