This is a great tasting beer I didn't know what I was getting into when I got it and I'm nicely surprised! Cloudy yellow gold. Didn't have a huge head but it did have a wonderful aroma and flavor. Sweet and yeasty nice and smooth.

Excellent German wheat beer, hazy & cloudy appearance, straw dark gold in color, poured out to a huge white head, when the head finally disappated a bit, it laced around the glass the whole way down, flavors of banana, a little bit on the tart side, a little bit of a spicy yeasty flavor as well, very smooth & very drinkable, I certainly wasn't disappointed in this beer

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2007 [rerate needed] A nice wheat, very smooth but very mild. Not many things stand out in taste. I’m partial to a different type of hefeweizen, so I wasn’t impressed.

Compared to most other variants of this style,
this beer is not as frothy. The banana/coriander trademark aroma and flavor
are more pronounced, almost embarrassingly so.
Yes, this is a hefe-weiss! screams the beer.
Pleasant malty flavors and finish.

Amber colour with a beautiful foam. Aroma of sulphur, flowers and banana. Well-balanced flavour. Persistence of the sulphur in the aftertaste. A good, well-made beer.

Loved the carbonation and lemony flavor. Reminded me of a shandy. Cloudy yeasty appearance, decent head. If I’m ever searching for a German Wheat (probably during the summer), I’ll get this one.

Very similar to the Hacker-Pschorr my brother likes that we also drank at Christmas. A little less memorable, but still very clear and refreshing.

Great color and great head. Not as dry as Franziskaner, a great beer from such a large brewery
