500ml bottle. Orange with a dying head. Big banana aroma is pretty sweet. Dryer flavor than usual for the style, and a litlte less tart. Medium, crisp body. Pretty standard and well made.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured a clear golden yellow with a good amount of head. Fairly standard as German Hefs go, but this one has more banana-like esters, and there’s definitely some chamomile notes in there as well. A really great wheat beer. Nice, clean, refreshing, crisp, an easy drinker. Recommended.

Breathtaking good beer. Pours a cloudy mixed gold colour. Nice hefe solid head. Bananas and clove predominate. More full on than the usual wheat beer. Wish I had been around for the 1940s Octoberfest for the original of this...

yeasty/ clove/spice on nose.
very cloudy/dirty appearance.
flavor is intense wheaty, with some citric undertones, flavor lingers on for at least a minute or more. very clean and balance is almost perfect. this is basically a double weisse & the best weisse beers i’ve had. KICK ASS BEER
head and shoulders above the rest of the weisse beer field

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clove yeast and coriander. I loved the nose, very sweet and full. It is lighter on the mouth than other hefe’s but the mellow clovey mouth is nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
July 2006 - Man, can I have a little more beer with my cloves, please? If it weren’t for the excessive clovey nature, this would have been better than the original. Beautiful crystal clear golden color. Nice wheaty, clovey aroma. Flavor was CLOVES under, around and on top of a nice wheaty base, bananas and bubble gum. Mouthfeel was carbonated. Very good, but I’ll still take my Paulaner, please.
