Had on tap at Fred,s Alehouse. Good brew. Nice head, left lacing up & down my glass. Tones of banana/clove. Tall .5L glass was pretty cool too.

A classic german "Hefeweizen". This means that the yeast, which provides the second bottle fermentation, stays in the bottle. But other than similar belgium beers, the yeast has to go into the glass in order to be drunk with the beer. So these beers are always troubled and the yeast gives a huge part of the taste. The Paulaner surprises with a dryer hop note than most of it’s brothers. Tghis makes it quite unique and is very pleasant. On the other hand, the typical banana hint is much less detectable. Still, it’s a wonderful thirst killer. What makes this Hefeweizen so good, is the fact that it is not the truely typical Hefeweizen. It has it’s own character as it slightly dryer that other Hefeweizens. Sure, if you’re searching for the wonderful banana hints a Erdinger provides e.g., you might be dissapointed. But don’t - relax and enjoy it’s unique combination of flavors.

Unde (415) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2014
Hazy orange looks with fluffy and big head on top. Fresh fruits and wheat malts in the aroma. Citrus pops up too but the aroma is on the sweet side rather than bitter. Taste has lots of wheat, fruits and yeast. Medium Body and high carbonation. Well you cannot go much wrong with a Hefeweizen, but I’ve tasted better ones.

asimeow (104) - Sandsli, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2014
caramel, hay, spruce, leaves, earthy, soy sauce, golden, hazy, frothy, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium sourness, medium body, slick feel, soft carbonation. Not a big fan of wheat beer, but this was slightly more interesting than others I’ve tried, due to it’s sour taste. Still not a very interesting beer, but decent.

MikaLukanainen (26) - POLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Hazy yellow to light orange beer with a nice, white, frothy and stable head. Aroma of sweet bananas and some cloves in the backgroud, intense. Taste is again sweet banana, a bit of sourness and an acrid touch of carbon dioxide on the palate. Sweet banana lingers for a while in the aftertaste. Strong carbonation. Refreshing, appears to be full-bodied due to the sweet banana notes in aroma and mostly in taste. Really good beer.
