Biased opinion as I love hefe weizens. This one had some setiment in the bottom of the bottle (typical for a nice weizen), a very cloudy appearance, and less frothy head. Nice flavor with excellent palate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught (barrel-conditioned) at the Weisses Bräuhaus Munich: Cloudy, darker than the average pale wheat; rich nose: cloves, bananas, vanilla and some citrus in the nose; complex malty and fruity taste, leading to a drier, tart and fruity finish. The benchmark !

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A large robust nose of floral & wheat, pours a resonant cloudy amberish to gold in color. Nicely built head that enhances the nose. Crisp, slightly sweet, tasting following what the nose and aroma offer, plus some some traces of fruits. A good entry overall.

Not much different than the Paulaner Hefe-Weizen I just had, though a little darker in complexion with less head and less . . . fruity a flavor. Again, not especially interesting.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2005 On Tap. Pours a hazy amber with a dissappearing head. Fruity aromas with plum and banana and yeast. A bit too sour. Sour finish with banana flavor. OK CO2 level.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2006 Combined rating from US bottle and Munich brauhaus - Pours dark cloudy brownish amber with a fully receding off-white head. Aroma is phenolic with notes of dusty yeast, clove, caramel, alcohol, and spice. Taste is lightly sweet and yeasty: notes of apples, cloves, dark bread. Finish is tart and moderately acidic, lightly sweet. This beer is a slightly different take on the style, and it’s darker than a typical hefe. Delicious when fresh and on tap, but still enjoyable in the bottle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fully hazy, foxy-chestnut with olive shine; small but tenacious creamy head. Banana, cloves and dark candi-sugar aromas. Citrussy acidity, obvious wheat. Roasted malts contribute making it much drier than the Helles. No excess sweetness here, except a litte restsweetness retronasal. Malty dry, full bodied. Dry and fusels in the aftertaste. Very good - the original N°1 in Weizenbierland is still great. Only - to me this ought to be called a Dunkel Weizen...
