A good German hefeweizen. It’s best if you get it really fresh. Strong wheaty flavor and aroma. Goes down smooth and overall a very decent hefe.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled (BB 04/2008)
Hazy light orange color, good creamy white head. Fruity banana aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, taste of overriped banana - although beer itself is not really sweet. Papery hops. Middle-on-the-road weizen from large regional (Stuttgart) brewery.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orange, cloudy color with frothy, lasting head says "drink me." The rest was disappointing. Faint aroma includes sweet bread, floral, citrus. Not the most flavorful hefe, and not the most bland either. Sweet cereals, banana, bubble gum, oranges. Clean but bready finish. Lively. Refreshing but not outstanding.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Opaque orange pour of yeast. Typical Hefe smell. Crisp palate, fruity with some corn and alcohol. Tangy, acidy bitterness, lacking in wheat flavor, oily. Not a very good example of the style. Overall, pretty average.

Draught at Zwiebel, Esslingen, Baden-Württemberg. A classic Hefeweizen. Yeast and bananas in the aroma. Sweet flavour of yeast and banana.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy pale yellow. Nice estery banana nose along with phenols(that is can). Smooth, yet thin body with alkohol and banana. Pretty boring.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at some restaurant in Vaihingen, Germany. Poured cloudy golden yellow with a very full, slightly yellow head. Veyr nic elooking hefe. Same aroma as the dunkel- yeast, banana, clove. Flavor is a bit more bitter with less sweetness than the dunkel. Lots more carbonation too. Finish is somewhat bitter and doesn’t finish like a hefeweizen with a lingering sweetness. This finishes kind of dry like a pilsner. Good beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Unclear, orangey golden with a thick and rich head. Fresh and fruity all right, but not with the strongest banana esters. An average Hefe. 150403

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with huge airy white head. Pretty typical, but with some meaty wheat flavors, lending to a chewy mouthfeel. Not my favorite.
