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.

Yellow-orange, much smaller white head than I expected, lots of yeast flakes. Aroma is banana and cloves. Thin mouthfeel.

Slightly fruity nose. Yeloow orange color, with a white head. Full palate, with a fruity citrus note balanced with banana. Overall well made and drinkable.

Smells floral and wheaty. Appears a cloudy amber. Gave a good head. A great tasting florally, fruity, wheaty concoction. Hint of apples, lemons and pears. Full-flavored. Yeasty. Not too spicy. Nice, long finish.

This is excellent. Good wheat flavour. Reminds me of hoegaarden white, but without some of the extra flavours, and better.

This is just excellent. It's the darkest hefe I've sampled, and is the best of the style. Big, frothy head, complex, full taste, coupled with the mouth puckering refreshment, which a hefe should deliver. One of my all time favourites.

Smooth and easy to drink. Large head. Its decent overall, but I would pick its neighbor bottle the Aventinus everytime if I had the chance. That is just too amazing for words.
