COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With its amber-mahogany coloring and streaked with fine top-fermented yeast, this beer has a fine, persistent head that adheres well to the glass. It is pleasantly fruity with a typical top-fermented smell, an aroma of clove and nutmeg apple tantalizes the nose. On the tongue it is fresh, clean, full-bodied, harmonious and well-balanced. It finishes with a light, delicate taste of bitters leaving behind a sour impression.

Bottle. A decent hefe, but not enough. I prefer franziskaner hefe, even if its a little too carbonated. Anyway, medium dark brown, darker than most hefe’s. Smells light and refreshing. But the flavor falls a little flat. Not on my list to try again unless nothing else decent is available.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Cloudy amber color,small head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was spice and bannanna with maybe a bit of a semi-sweet side.The flavor was fairly decent,sort of sweet at times with a decent bannanna side a nice not overly done spice with a mild alcohol but very mild.Over all a fairly decent brew that makes for a nice summer session but for the cooler temps coming it doesn’t fit right now.Well worth trying again in the summer.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2004
Amber colored with some cloudiness, little yellow head which disappeared totally. Yeasty and fruity aroma, pretty standard for hefeweizen. Strong carbonation comes up in start. Flavor starts watery and sweet, ends with lasting banana and some yeast, which make aftertaste pretty nice. Too much carbonation for my taste, still crispy and refreshing brew, although not anything special.

NosirIwont (1964) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 Draft at The Wharf, Aalborg, Denmark. Hazy, pale copper-brown colour. Creamy white head, which sinks. Yeast in the aroma. The flavour is hoppy with yeast. Fresh. Fruity. Not so powerful, but very well balanced. Soft. Not a lot of aftertaste.

Bottle. - 7 / 3 / 6 / 3 / 10. Pours a hazy light copper brown with a diminishing white head. Sweetish aroma; yeast. Nice. Flavour is sweetish and yeasty. Feels a bit thin. Thin finish. Slightly bitter and dryish with faint metallic notes. 09-03-07.

SED43 (23) - Manhattan, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Nice light bouquet of cloves and banana with a slight hint of fermentating vinegar alcohol. Was’nt impressed with the quick dissipating head not even a lace on the glass. Large bubble size would sum that up. Cloudy rust in color. What I like to do is before the bottle is empty I leave just a little of the elixir and swirl the contents to get the wheat that settled off the bottom. Taste was a little to light for me. And even though Hefeweizen is my fav. This one has a nice wet mouthy feel but a little to wet for my likes. Not a real true hefe in my opinion. Could be more considered a light hefe. I’m just taking taste, but it does pack the punch of hefe. Putting all things aside I like it but it would be last resort if I can get better.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2004
Cloudy bown colour. Nice, big thick head. Heavy cloves aroma. Taste is banana, yeasty, cloves. A bit lightbodied, which is the reason I rate this lower than my favourite weizens.
