3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2004 Pours a amber body with a tall, voluptuous white head. Aroma is perfect for a hefeweizen. Spice, yeast, fresh fruit and wheat. The taste reflects the aroma in many ways. Hints of banana and yeast with spice blended throughout. Nice wheaty taste as well. The palate is smooth, even if a bit over carbonated, and very drinkable. Finish is more spice and yeast. Very refreshing beer! I love hefe’s during the summer. They seem to click more with this season than most other beers. Great hefeweizen!

All around an excellent Hefe. Dark golden pour, light white head which dissipates quickly. Fresh clove and spearmint aroma. Crisp hefe flavor - bubblegum and bananas. Very refreshing. Thick, clingy mouthfeel - yet refreshing. A good summer refresher.

Good head, good color, stronger flavor than I have experienced in comperable Weizens. A good thirst quencher with a lingering taste on the palate. Great on a hot day.

Light chestnut color with a large foamy,
white head. A mild banana and citrus
aroma. Stronger flavored than most hefe-weizens. Nice malted wheat flavor. Highly carbonated and refreshing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2007 Wow! Just slightly lighter in color than Aventinus. This is dark for a hefeweizen...poured a slightly clouded copper-orange color with those lovely big natural bubbles streaking up the glass sides.... capped by a big frothy meringue head that stacks out of the glass and stays for the ride lacing up the sides of the weizen glass. Wonderful aromas of apple-banana with caramelized malts and a nice dab of clove-like spice. Starts tart and peppery from the effervescence and citrus tastes up front... then the flavors expands in the mid palate and on the tongue, to a big wheat-malt departure with the apple-banana-clove yeast signature and a nice understated musty toffee taste from the malts. The finish is fairly dry with a nicely balanced sweet-tart aftertaste.
This is a sturdy, old style wheat beer with bottle conditioned qualities that send its unique complexity over the top. I love this one.

Light lemony aroma, citrus, bread. Cloudy light amber, visible carbonation with foamy white lacing head. Medium body, light-medium carbonation. Starts wheaty, citrus, a little sweet. Nice rounded acidity, no bitter. Bubblegum clove finish, with sweet banana. Mild after, very refreshing. Solid weizen.

Light brown body and a great big white head. A nice light typical wheat nose. Lots of streamers and well-carbonated. A great hefe.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2004 Pours an amazing cloudy terra-cotta body topped with a thick off-white bubbly head. Yeasty aroma with various hints of spices, malt, fruits (citrus, banana) and herbs. Mouthfeel has a good balance of carbonation, maltyness, yeastiness and fruityness. Long and wonderful final. Along with Maisels Weisse and Hacker-Pschorr, this is one of my top-3 bavarian Hefeweizen.

My favorite of all the Bavarian Hefe-Weizens. A little bigger and bolder than the every-day Weisse, it never fails to quench a thirst and please through a great complexity of flavors.
