Amber color with a thin head. Flavor is citrus & spice. It leaves you with a slight bitter taste.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2004 Murky dark orange color with a quickly diminishing, thick and big-bubbled head. Quite sour, fruity and yeasty, slightly spicy aroma. Not very strong, and not nearly as much banana aroma as in most hefeweizens. Sourish and dry (for a weizen), bitter, malty and fruity flavor. Quite full-bodied and smooth, dry and sour, but stingingly carbonated palate. A very nice and refreshing weizen, with just the right sourness (for me) to be enjoyable.

Large white head and zesty lemon aroma. Dark and cloudy. A good citrus taste which lingers on the palate. Overall, very enjoyable.

It's darker than the norm, and pours a good fluffy head. Yeast and citrus in the nose. Full taste, rather dry, medium body. The finish seemed a bit weak and slightly tarty. A good and balanced weizen that still didn't quite live up to my (very high) expectations.

Hazy, dark golde, huge head.
A bitter, yeasty aroma.
Rather dry with yeast and spices in the flavour.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2009 Draught, Delirium Café, Göteborg.
Hazy dark amber. Aroma is just perfect, with clove, vanilla and a clean maltiness. Rounded flavour of ginger, clove and vanilla. Light spicy that is. Dry finish. Incredibly juicy and tasty. Fantastic hefe.

Really liked the cloudy amber appearance with frothy head. Couldn't quite figure out the nose but definitely there was citrus in both aroma and flavour. Very enjoyable and worth keeping a couple of these on hand.

german version of hoegaarden white. smells of citrus, wheat and floral hoppiness. amber with good head that died quickly and thin body. tart, wheat, spice and citrus, dry and refreshing. good but i prefer the more rounded hoegaarden.

Very frothy head that filled the glass. The amber color was slightly clouded. This was my forth gift beer of Christmas. I was not impressed.

Good stuff. I love the amber color of this wheat beer. Schneider is my favorite maker of Bavarian wheat beers. This is not my favorite of theirs, but it is a classic full flavored example of the style. I like the spicy/fruity yeastiness of this brewery. Excellent beer.
