Good hefe. Nice gold color, good white head. Smooth and good taste. I liked this a lot.

Not too inticing aroma, really no citrus notes. Nice golden color. Head dissipates rapidly. Smooth taste, somewhat boring, nothing too distictive here. Mellow aftertaste. Another lawnmower beer.

Good hefeweizen. Probably the best hefe you're going to get that is brewed on this side of the Atlantic. If you want the best that you can get, I'd go for a Tuchor.

Not very impressive - at least from the tap. Maybe the bottles are better. Appearance was not true to the style. Aroma was barely there. The yeasty/wheat taste was very ordinary. Much better hefe's to select out there.

This bottle was about a month past the "Best by this date" recommendation label. Had the appearance of a nice cloudy hefe with not very much aroma. The flavor was lemony and slighty fruity. It didn't taste old, but there just wasn't much going on to talk about in this beer.

Cloudy orange. Slight notes of bananas and oranges. Pretty bland. I still have to meet a 'american wheat' which i find interresting.

This is an utterly classic example of beauty being only skin deep. This is a very pretty brew - nice cloudy swirls and a decent head, bordering on thickly gorgeous though it rapidly churns away. And so does all lauding for the brew - there bascially is nothing there beneath the makeup. Is it Animal House where the kid goes to undo the bra and is left holding crumpled kleenex as she passes out? Very little left to this brew - check out how many times the always on target ecrvich used synonyms for "average" in his review and you understand better than if you made it through my vacuous rant.

I’m on my 2nd pony keg of this. These go down way too smooth on a hot summer day. Looked good and smelled good also. Cloudy golden color with a good head.

BBB63 (6122) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 7, 2003
Hazy golden color with good sized head but quickly disminishing, light-bodied. Very wheaty and citrus aroma, also could not detect the banana or spices normally found in most Hefeweizens, the style listed in right just not the label. Flavor matches the aroma, fruity and mild hop presence. Clean fruity aftertaste. All in all, not a bad beer just miss-marketed name.

Looks and smells good but taste is a little off. Wheaty and citric but I detected something a little metallic to the flavor. Where is the bannana and clove? I've had better hefeweizens.
