3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a tawny color w/ full semi creamy froth. Strong aroma of banana spice. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors of crispy malt and banana spice w/ moderate medicinal essence. On the watery side w/ no mid palate. Finish has a strong banana spice that lingers. Overall: darker in color than others in it’s genre. A decent example.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Absolutely not the expert on Hefeweizen so this rating is purely out of personal judgement. The aroma reminded me of rotting fruits. Cloudy, dark amber body with fast vanishing head of three fingers. Heavy, wheaty copper tasting concoction with slightly fruity aftertaste. Rich heavy consistency. Not overly pleased with this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught in kaiserslautern. Not much to say about this hefeweizen - does its job and does it damn well. The usual banana is accompanied by some lovely floral and fruity tones, all of which swirl together into a delectable combination. Something does taste very mass-produced about it to me for some reason, but oh well, it all seems to work.

Bottle. Pours a murky, dishwater shade of amber with a huge frothy white head. Big banana and malt wheat aromas. There is a slight plastic smell. Clean wheat flavor with some fruit notes. Pleasantly spicy with a clean finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fruity coriander aroma. Copper bronze color with a very nice fluffy head. The head is quick to dissapate. The taste provides a bit of a sour apple tingle with a fruity spice pop. The aroma and the taste work in perfect harmony. Excellent palate with a lingering smotth sweet taste on the buds. Very easy to drink and exceptional hefe.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2006 500 ml bottle - pours a dull copper colour, similar to unpasteurised honey, with diminishing white head. Darker than most hefeweizens I’ve seen. Aroma of banana, yeast and some spice, with faint hints of green apple. Taste is very nice, banana, pineapple, a little nutmeg and wheat. Long, bready finish. Full body makes this a beer to be enjoyed year-round - not just for summer like many hefeweizens.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Coriander, cloves and a hint of ginger and lemon completes the aroma of this beer. Fruity, floral on a nice yeasty finish. Nice looking body, nothing spectacular.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Darker brown than most hefe-weizen, pours with a modest but persistant head. Good lacing down the glass. Flavor is combo of light grassy with followups of bananas and spice. Nice clean finish. Overall a very good beer.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2007 500 ml Draught, Hotel Gasthof Sonne, Neuendettelsau. More deep estery fruits in the aroma than has the *Bottled* Schneider Weisse Original , of course nowhere near the richness of the Aventinus Doppel. Moderately rich malty taste and finish is clean, just a note rounder than the bottledl. Nice, everyday Dunkeles Weizen for Bavarians to toss back in quantity.
