Bottle - this beer is exactly what I think of when I think of German Hefe’s. Big banana nose. Cloudy gold body with a head of tiny white bubbes. Soft on the palate, slightly fizzy. Yeasty, grainy flavor. This is a terrific beer!

Bottle Hazy, orange body. Off-white rocky head, which diminishes fully. Lightly earthy aroma. Lightly bitter flavour. Some acidity in the end.

blonde body with substantial head that doesn’t disappear quickly. Nice even lacing. Very very slight hop bitterness, and a sweet honeyish flavor. Typical of a hefe.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2008 This beer is near the top of my list of favorite Hefes. Its sweet and banana like with honey and cloves. It looks milky in the light and has the wonderful smell of fruit. The malt is perfect to me. Outstanding!

I simply don’t enjoy German wheat beers. This one had nice color though- very creamy looking orange, but the carbonation was really prickly. The Trifecta just isn’t for me. (The Trifecta consists of a Paulaner Hefe, a Cuban cigar, and a properly performed "beej").

An initial rush of fruit finished off with a bit of honey makes this brew one of my all-time favorites.

Tastes of honey and fruit. Sweet, but well-made and balanced. Excellent weißbier.

Not my favorite weiss, but pretty good. A little darker in color than most and a bit fruity, but not too sweet. Some citrus flavor, but not overpowering. A bit better than average.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
[Bottle from Le Petit Moulinsart] Hazy peach colour with thick foamy head that didn’t last. Fruity but subdued banana and peach aroma. Sweet tasting with some clove and banana but really weak. Light to medium body. Really too restrained across the board. I wonder if something was wrong with that bottle; I’ve had this beer before on tap and remember enjoying it a lot more.

On tap: poured a dark yellow with a small head. Had a nice finish but a fruity/citrus flavor. Nice blend, tastes very light.
