3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - 500ml. Hazy golden color. Its thick foamy head tends to dissipate quickly. Nice yeasty, fruity and spicy aroma. Taste is quite decent but lacks complexity. Dominated by yeasty flavors. Acceptable citrusy finish. Good Hefeweizen, but not among the best.

Golden cloudy appearance, initial smell hinted of honey, maybe banana like. Thick head dissapated quickly, Initial taste hit me with something; can’t put a finger on it. Not bad after that, no bitter aftertaste. Tasted Koening Ludwig Bottle, not Luitpold. Altogether a nice beer.

Hazy muted yellow with thick white head. Strange honey banana nose that reminds me of a young mead. Med weight with creamy mouthfeel and sweetish finish. Creamy vanilla, banana, and light spice round out the flavors. Not bad but a bit too candy-ish for me.

taste and aroma the same... sweet sour wheat but it is not good. It´s missing a balance.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Some banana clove aroma, sweet, atop mild wheat grainy smell. Mild skunkiness. Hazy golden amber with fluffy off-white lacing head. Medium body with active carbonation. Starts with good banana ester wheat flavor, bit of citrus tang. Low acidity, but with mild carbonic burn. Light fruity wheaty finish and mild chalky after. Low bitterness overall, and nice estery undertones with some spice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Adherent foam of medium persistence. Color clearly much loads and veiled. Opaque and dense. Incredible crisp detaches one, indeed and much persistent fort. Medium body of good structure.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Malt aroma with banana and cherry - very nice. Yellow tan color - slightly cloudy with ample, lasting head. Slightly tart malt flavor - subtle banana/clove- not much sweetness. Nice full body. A nice Weizen more on the malt side.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2005 This is a good beer because it has banana and wheat combined in the taste. Also it is sweet but not too sweet. The percentile is too low I think it should be higher then that. The aftertaste is pleasant. The aroma is the only thing that didn’t cut it for me. Good stuff.

(bottle) This is a hefeweizen that you won’t be dissapointed in. It’s so characteristic of the style; with its slightly cloudy bright orange body and fruity clove notes. Very very smooth. I often feel let down by bottled hefeweizens but this was a winner.
