Poured to a foamy head; cloudy and darker than most hefeweizens I’ve had. Taste is light with a light, foamy mouthfeel. Beer was too cold at first, but got better as it warmed up a bit. A good weisse beer.

Poured the usual cloudy weizen appearance. The head and lacing were typical (big). The aroma was clovey and banana-like. Somewhat sweet and cloying, this one came through with cloves and bananas. The flavor was very similar with a dryness in the finish comparable to some of the dunkelweizens I’ve had. Maybe a higher level of hops for the style, which is kinda nice, keeping it from coming across as too sweet. Mouthfeel was light to moderate. Nice to check-in with one last refreshing weizen amidst the heavier Fall and Winter seasons.

Surprisingly dark in looks, rather weak aroma, some sourness, clove, yeast. Flavor is very fresh, not as citrucy as I might have expected. Yeasty, with a slightly bitter finish. Nice hefe but I was expecting a little bit more. Verdict : good but overrated

Bottle, 50cl. Hazy, dark caramel orange colours, with a decent white fizzy head, just like a good hefe should be. Sour aromas, cinammon and banana. The beer has a rich and complex taste, wheaty, with definite hints of banana and nuts. The finish has bubblegum and slightly bitter qualities. One of my favourite hefeweizen.

The first and last word in the style -- the beer to challenge and confound the Hefe haters. I am struck by the freshness -- is this really from so far away? Lovely color -- sort of distressed suede, thick head that lasts. Cakey, balanced, fullyformed. A world-class beer, well deserving of its incredible reputation. Thank you, Germany.

The best wheat beer I’ve ever had. Pours to an amber color, with thick off-white head, thousands of bubblres and very good lacing. Aroma of wheat, clove and cinnamon. Taste slightly spicy, and very good. Excellent finish. This is a beer I could enjoy often.

Opaque amber pour with an initial bubbling that settle down into a thin layer of love suds. Nose is of nuts and slightly sour, but pleasant, fruit. Chewy mouth feel that gives you a floraly-spicy kick with that sour fruit. An almost sparkling wine-like bubbly feel, but not overwheminly so. Pleasant finish decent grain finish.....very nice beer.

Hazy amber with a small white head. The aroma has something nutty and has hints of dry caramel.
It has a nice wheaty texture with a good dosis of flower-pollen aroma’s. The taste is dry, nutty and has a smooth mild mouthfeel. This beer has a clean and refreshing taste with hints of peache-pit, nuts, cereals and some dry honey accents.

On tap at Berlin-Tegel Flughafen. Cloudy orangey copper with a big creamy off-white head. Strong banana aroma. Sweet with fruity, mainly banana flavours, dryish finish with clove flavours taking over. Rather light-bodied, fizzy. A refreshing beer without too much complexity.
