Slightly less head than generic hefeweissen. Fruity, fresh aroma. Body slightly thinner than expected. Touch of boiled veggies. Vanilla notes and a bit sweeter than the average hefeweissen.

Draught: This one pours a cloudy darker golden color. Slight hints of orange to the color. There was a small white head. The aroma was quite nice. It was yeasty, wheaty, and spicy, also with notes of banana. The flavors mirrored the aromas. A very nice beer.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2005 Not the best hefe I’ve had but certainly not the worst. Not as dry like other German beers I’ve tasted. Definitely easy to drink and a complex balance to boot. Bubblegum flavor is missing but plenty of banana is present. Somewhat spicy too.

Paulaner...very good. Not my favorite hefe by a long shot, but it holds its own regardless

Very good beer. I really liked this one. I am by no means a professional, but this was good, albeit more expensive than I am used to, but since this is my first stab at "good" beers, I was willing to sacrifice.

This is a very honorable hefe-weizen. The head is strong and maintains a good retention. The lace is full creamy and slippery. It is hazy with a golden color (hints of red). A well-balanced effervescent and smooth mouth feel. Smell is of bananas and lemon and malt with a hint of clove. The taste is citrus, spicy and sweet with a slightly dry finish. A very well balanced beer. The best hefe-weizen for me to date.

Browny colour with a malty aftertaste.
Quite fruity and easy to drink.I am gradually finding out why wheat beers make for a good drink.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2014 17 July 2004 - Pear like Duvel sweet hoppy aroma. Good retention, white head, suds lacing and cloudy yellow brown colour. Smooth fruity, slight pleasant sweetness with complex balance and not over the top hops. Thickish palate with bubbly medium mouthfeel.
