Pours cloudy gold with a lasting white head. Aroma of bananas, wheat, and some unknown fruit. Also some cloves. Flavor of wheat with light spices and the same unknown fruit. Excellent palate, pleasant finish. Great on a hot day.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had on tap last night at a local restaurant. Pours a very cloudy medium yellow- much lighter than weihenstephaner. Billowy lasting white head as well. Aroma is a good balance between spicy earthy clovey phenols and fruity banana esters with a nice wheaty profile. Flavor is smooth sweet wheat, light clove spice, some pepper, citrusy and zesty. Nice smooth palate although seemed a bit slick after a while and became annoying. Pretty solid hefe.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Pours a cloudy orange with a large head. Taste is very subtle compared to most hefes I’ve tasted. Aolt of spice in this beer. Low carbination gives way to a very smooth mouth feel. I usually don’t like hefe’s, but this one is quit surprising. Especially on a hot afternoon like today

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle. Smooth taste and mouthfeel upfront, which turned heavy at the end as I swallowed. The beer felt almost syrupy for a moment, with a pleasant finish and aftertaste. Notes of banana and citrus. Very pleasant overall, but I wonder if that heaviness would get cloying after more than one or two bottles.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A 12 fluid ounce bottle poured a thick, deep golden, papaya juice-like consistency and was topped with a huge frothy foam head. The head lasted through the first three slurps from my mug leaving me with a "got milk" mustache. Tame typical hefe flavors reigned supreme. Spice clove, and some citrus. Mouthfeel was smooth with little to no carbonation or alchohol detected. The aftertaste was all spice and clove. All in all the flavor was great. But unfortunatley, the brew from my bottle was borderline FLAT which ruined what otherwise could have been a great beer drinking experience.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2006 1pt 9oz bottle from Hy-Vee Liquors St. Joseph poured into weizen - Pours murky golden with a 3 finger beige head; Mainly wheat and malt to the nose with a hint of banana; I don’t smell much citrus at all, which is strange for a hefe; wheat, a little banana and a slight bit of citrus initial taste; A very wheaty backtaste with a hint of spice and orange at the very end; Not a bad hefe, though I’ve had better. I had to take a pretty big pull off of it to get the citrus taste. The aroma just wasn’t there for me, but I’d definitely drink it again!

Pours like a good hefe should-small, tight head, cloudy tannish yellow. Smells of all that is good hefe. Tastes same but plus heavier carbonation. Overall a solid choice for a good hefe

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange with an above-average head. Good banana and vanilla nose. Flavours start sweet and fruity, gradually developing spicier and drier. Some grainy texture, quite sparkling, but not overly so. Probably my favourite hefeweizen (so far).
