3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured into weizen glass- poured very slightly murky dull golden orange yellow, medium carbonation of tiny bubbles, white head bubbled away as I wrote this, aroma of coriander, banana, and wheat. Hits the mouth with a thin strong body, banana very present, finish of slight bitterness. Yeah!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a yellowish-orange with a small and quickly-dissipating white head. Aroma is banana, citrus, and slight coriander. Taste is the same, with citrus and banana up front dissolving into a vanilla/coriander aftertaste. Very smooth and a great example of the style.

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...

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.
