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.

Interesting murky orange/yellow/brown color with a gray/tan head. The aroma was full of fruit, banana, clove, and wheat. The flavor was nice and sweet...banana bread. Okay mouthfeel...at times it seemed watery. Nice Hefe-Weisse.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2003 I was hesitent to try it as a friend didnt like it but I think its terrific. What a great german brew. No skunk at all just fine flavor. Long live wheat beer! A little more dark then most standard wheats but great if that is what you are in the mood for.

Ok, so I got an error when I typed "beer...it kicks ass!" saying my comment needed to be over 75 characters. What's up with that? Is this not a free country? I know about beer...I've done my share of serious reviews on this web site. I don't need to know what goes into a review of a beer. If I want to write a 4 word review of a beer, I should have that rite. Are we a country that allows freedom of speech, or one one that says ?you have to see this to proceed??

The dull gold color gives way to spicy and refreshing aroma and flavor. It's good but not impressive.

jercraigs (7337) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2009 2009-12-03. Hazy golden dark amber, good sized off white head. 3+ Mild aroma, light alcohol and yeast. Flavour is similar, yeast, some mild esters. Light bitterness in the finish, but sweet overall. Average plus palate is smooth, fairly carbonated. Pleasant, but milder than I remember it being. 7/4/7/3/14 Bottle from LCBO, Toronto

Re-rate Oct 2004 - Pours hazy golden body with a massive white head that slowly diminishes. Lots of yeast in the aroma, with a touch of spicy clove. Flavour has a bit more of the cloves notes than I personally like, but is still very pleasant. Touch of sweet banana in the finish, touch of alcohol in the background is more apparent than ideal, and also more prominent than I remember from other samples. Full bodied, pleasant palate. 6/4/6/4/15

Sept 2000 - Clove taste is not as strong as in some, and is balanced well with the subtle malt. Not an everyday beer, but a must try. 7/4/6/4/9

Big head that faded slowly. Cloudy, dark amber appearance. Yeasty, wheaty nose with some spice. Very mellow taste, dominated by the fruits and spices typical to this style. Nicely carbonated, which adds to its thirst quenching attributes. Peppery aftertaste with a clean, lingering finish. Love it.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2006 Large, frothy-fizzy white head on a hazy brown body. Aroma of toasted cereal, grass, dough, and smoke. Flavor starts moderately sweet and tails off towards the finish. Medium acidity throughout. Light/medium body, watery, and fizzy. Suprisingly dark brew, which hides an otherwise beautiful cloudiness. Good wheat taste but less bananas than Ayinger’s Brau Weisse. Carbonation makes this beer feel bigger than it is. Flavor and aroma are restrained. A very good thirst quenching beer and a very good hefe-weizen.

Franziskaner (4) - Sauerlach, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2003 does not count
This beer comes from the oldest Weissbier brewery in the Munich area. It's a comparative dark Weissbier with a bit stronger flavor. Most bavarians love it and I also can recommend it to everybody.

probably the best weißbier out there. the funny thing is that it´s actually quite dark.
