OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, - AUG 17, 2006
On Tap at Fado Seattle (sans lemon slice - YUK!). Muddy cloudy yellow beige with a small short lasting white head. Served maybe a touch too cold. Citrusy sourdough yeasty aroma. Medium light dry palate. Flavours are decent citrusy grapefruit (hey why add the lemon folks!!!!) and medium to light bitter hops. Mild sweetness leading to dry clean finish.

Smooth and light lager. Hard to tell it’s a hefeweizen. Very clean finish and cloudy appearance

Dacrza (516) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2014
DATE REVIEWED: August 10, 2014... GLASSWARE: Weihenstephaner weizen... OCCASION: birthday weekend recovery...APPEARANCE: golden orange, almost Oktoberfest colored body that hazes beneath spongy three-finger, white head; low carbonation; lacing is wispy... AROMA: Yow! yeasty funk that sports bubblegum, prominently; secondary banana is detectable; a bit offensive... PALATE: more carbonated than its appearance suggests; pleasantly drinkable, light-bodied and cleansing; does its job well... TASTE: banana, cumin and hay--a direct profile that doesn’t intrude on its refreshing intent; not as BIG as a hefe, though--or as complex as its nose suggests...OVERALL: after some sun and yardwork, this beer is a recharger for sure--the glass empties swiftly and is a softer, more accessible version of its better versions...

Bottle. Golden color, massive white head. Aroma of subtle banana, light citrus. Taste is similar. Hi carbonation detracts from the taste.

Not my favorite. Don't get me wrong, it was a tasty brew, but I have had some incredible hefes the this doesn't touch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Solid hefe. Surprised by the low ratings here -- I’m not sure what people are expecting? I wouldn’t mind a bit more banana notes in the flavor, but this one is quite good.

guil0000 (258) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Pours a very hazy dark yeloow golden color with a small white head. Nose is mainly orange and some lemon with some wheat and yeast. Mouthfeel is light to medium. Long wheat finish good carbonation. Refreshing but not spectacular. Pretty standard hefe all around.

alexsdad06 (5410) - Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2014
12 oz bottle from notes. Pours a slightly hazy light yellow/gold with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor are very mild; light wheat malts, light yeast, a hint of banana, very mild citrus, light body. This is not much different than most light beers. Pass.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2014
Very anonymous wheat ale with the citric notes being too dominating for my taste. Herbal, citric and floral with a weak palate.
