The aroma has banana, clove, and spices. Color is a cloudy yellow with a decent white head. Initially the flavor is slighlty fruity and grows to a spicey dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured with some head, but nothing ridiculous. The aroma was strikingly strong, bananas, spices, citrus all coming through strong. In the flavor, bananas and spices were strongest, although this one could have been a bit richer. A very good beer, and an above average hefe, but not the best of the hefe group. Would drink again, no doubt.

a very good and enjoyable german wheat but seemed just a tad, and i mean a tad, not up to its potential of a full hefe...maybe because i had a weihenstapher(sp) yesterday...so...great head....yellow gold..good flavour, enjoyable and a great sessioner.

Draught (Welcome Hotel, Bamberg): Loads of banana, actually quite sweet. Medium bodied, but flat and lifeless. Hazy gold in colour white a white head. Nice fruits and spice, but lacks the carbonation expected with a weizen.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is one good looking beer. Creamy head upon pouring, settling down to a persistent thin head; almost dense. Cloudy marmalade orange with layers of cloudiness, forcing a change in colour between pale orange and the deeper orange. Nose has good depth of spice and aromastic coriander, ‘feels’ heavy. Well balanced palate, a lighter lighter or elegant than the nose would suggest but regardless shows all the right notes – spice, cloves, slightly liquored. Needs a touch more power on the finish but not a deal breaker. A great educational beer for those not familar with the genre.

Pour is a darker yellow with a white head. Aroma is cloves and banana with some creamyness. Flavor is lots of lemon up front but ending with banana abd yeast. Decent brew that is easy to find.

6oz sample at Virginia Beer Festival as a "König Ludwig" label. Pretty decent hefeweizen, a lot better than the American "German" ones I’ve had. Wheat and bananas, with some spice flavors in there. Nice finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden body with a large fluffy white head. The aroma is peppery with clove notes and only a touch of banana fruitiness but I’d say it’s more spicy than anything. Soapy mouthfeel and there are flavours of bubblegum. Spicy notes are prevalent here again along with some lemon tartness in the finish. Pretty decent overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Very hazy yellow-brown color with creamy head. Strong aromas of banana and wheat with spicy, oily and acidic notes. Soft, oily and grainy flavor with something unpleasant in the background (starch?, soap?, oils?). Wheat, clove and melon in the finish.
