2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very little citrusy aroma. Beautiful cloudy dark golden colour. Very mild flavour with little banana or clove. Generally citrusy. Perhaps meant to be a hefe-weissbier for the non-wheat beer drinker - though very drinkable, it seems like a subdued example of the style. There's nothing wrong with this beer and I would certainly drink it again - it's just not what a German wheat should be. Bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden colour with a great thick white head. Smells of lemon, yeast, coriander seed and curacao (orange peel) all are elements of the smell. The taste is very mild, a bit of the freshness (curacao & coriander) is noticeable along with some yeastie & wheatieness. Aftertaste subtle as well showcasing a bit of the better flavours roaming around with this beer. Overall, a better than average German Wheat, and even though I had this just after turning 21, I hadn't had it since...so at a bar with about 125 taps, I picked this piece of crap...and it turned out to be alright! Try this if you like wheats, as it is most likely available and very pleasing! I got a 23 ounce glass of this on tap at MacGregor's in Rochester, New York.

A nice compliment to my meal. Lemony and mild, with somewhat of a dull palate--a little flat--and it is more brown and hazy in appearance than other hefeweizens, yet it has a better combination of flavors, judged side-by-side with the things my friends were drinking. (on tap, Ludwig's Garten, Philadelphia)

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2010 July 2003 Bottle. Refreshing, spicy and interesting. As one who is not a fan of wheat beers I found this surprisingly enjoyable - indeed, very surprisingly enjoyable! I’m ordering my Paulaner sunglasses and bikini. [3.0]
August 2010 Can. Pleasant drink with refreshing acidity and some mild bubblegum notes. Drinkable. [2.7]

Has that classic German spicyness to it. Thick white head out of the bottle that reminds me of the merangue on top of a pie! Hangs around for a while too. Not as pungent as other German Hefe's. Perhaps more enjoyable too. Still, I am up for a bit more...

An excellent beer to enjoy outside on a hot summer night. Crisp, refreshing, with a nice citrus aroma. My advice, chuck that Corona w/ Lemon crap, and plunk down for this beauty. If you've got the ching ching that is.

I had this on draught at Stone's 7th anniversary party.
Appearance: To the surprise of no one, the hefeweizen goose-stepped into the glass as a cloudy yellow pour
Aroma: The nose has banana and citrus notes.
Taste: The flavor of this hefe is the typical crisp and refreshing found in a hefeweizen; it's just done better than most

Though this is not a style of beer I usually enjoy, this was fairly pleasant; apricot-colored with a light banana/citrus taste.

Orangish appearance. Smells of wheat, oranges, and pears. Flavor is fairly light with a hint of banana. More of an apricot citrus fruit taste. A rather light palate. An enjoyable wheat beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Citrus nose with a cool, nice colour. Smoothe and refreshing with a wheaty finish. In fact, it is kind of sour at times. Not bad overall.
