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.

Definately on the darker coloured side, a nice medium chocolate brown. Slightly cloudy. Expressive nose, cloves, and some faint larger notes. Does remind of a Belgian strong ale. Much fainter and lighter in the palate, disappointing so. ’Feels’ nice in a Asahi Super Dry way, but where did the flavour go? Has to be a dodgy bottle.

highlandlad (1418) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2005 Rerate 23/7/05: Skinny over-carbonated weisse. Cloudy copper colour, poor head retention. Delicious aroma of banoffee pie - bananas, toffee and cream. Classic weisse. Thin, ridiculously fizzy palate. Like drinking Creamola Foam. Drab caramel flavour and little else going on. Original rating: 7/4/8/4/16

Strykzone (5063) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2005
This beer brings the words "crisp and clean" to a new level. It is also a beautiful beer with a head that is slightly golden in color. It enters the mouth with a slight tartness but leaves a sweet aftertaste which is unlike the commercial description. A fantastic beer!

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2005
Probably the best mainstream wheat beer in Germany. You can get it (almost) everywhere in bottles. Tasty, fruity, refreshing & palatable.

Pour ia a amber, little lace-dislike. Comes with a clove taste although light, very mild fruit. Refreshing, clean mild finish, another.

Supurb spicy yeasty flavor. Just enough hops bite to balance. Great beer.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - FEB 20, 2005
Excellent all around, cloudy orange/amber with a very tall sturdy white head. Tons of clove in the aroma, banana notes are much more mild, wheat and apple. Taste is very alive and refreshing, carbonation brings out the spiciness of this brew. Wheat and light malts up front, fading to apple clove finish.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - FEB 14, 2005
Spicy aroma, lots of clove with banana and bubblegum in the background. Cloudy dark amber color, on par with some dunkelweizens, thick off-white head. Cleaner tasting than other weisse beers, mostly clove, moderate tartness from the wheat, restrained apple fruitiness. Medium body, lots of spritzy carbonation. A little different from the classic hefeweizen - more emphasis on clove and tartness, less banana and bubblegum.

This, while less complex and outright amazing than Aventinus, has a less overpowering sweetness, and is probably more balanced. So far the best german wheat I’ve had aside from Aventinus, which is really in a class of its own, even among that all too rare dunkel doppelweisse category. Not a lot of hops, but it can’t be all things to all people.

Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - FEB 9, 2005
bottle-pours a dark amber hue with a nice fluffy white head. Pours much darker than most hefe’s, almost like a weizenbock. phenolic aroma of bananas, lemon zest, and lots of spice. the dark malts make a presence also. flavors are fairly malty with the normal hefe banana notes with a lemon note on the finish. tasty! a nice spritzy body brings the flavors in quite well.
