4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy amber with a nice full head that dissappated about 3/4 of the way through. The clove/apple smell was wonderful, and the crisp taste left me wanting another one. The carbonation was a bit much at first, but after the first couple drinks was fine, even helped to keep the taste fresh. Highly enjoyable beer, would love to try it on tap.

Actually the fizziness of this beer draged the score down a bit for me. The amber color, slightly cloudy, in conjuction with a fabulous though not overberring aroma really made up for anything left to be desired on the palate. Overall, would I overpay at a bar to drink this beer... yes I would!

Hazy amber-honeyish hue, with a foamy white head, yeasty, wheat malt, banana-like fruitiness and spicy clove aromas follows through on a medium-bodied palate, with a yeasty, mellow wheat malt charecter, touch of caramel, sweet malt accent, spicy clove, maybe a note of cinnamon, leading towards a sweetish maltiness finish

this beer has all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a german wheat. Banana, clove and a nice balance of hop and yeasty flavor. it’s a little darker in color than most weizens but finishes light. this beer remindes me of late summer, sitting in my yard having lunch while I smoke a pork butt in the barrel for dinner. AAHHHHHHHHHH .....pleasure!!

Banana and bread malt taste. Definately yummy. I added a lemon half way down and it was equally refreshing. definately not needed, but I wanted to try it both with, and without and only had one bottle. This is a great stock beer. had a lot of yeast to my surprise.

A Sim rate:
Great beer to smell as you sip. Banana and sultana in the aroma. Bit yeasty smell. Almost like freshly-baked bread. Banana bread, perhaps? No lacing. Head disappears like lightning. Flavour is fierce at first and then quickly gone. Tastes again like banana. Very smooth and easy-drinking. Tastes like a cross between an ale and a weiss beer. Very dark for a weiss beer, but sweet in the flavour.

My favorite weisse. Not too spicey, just a basic wheat beer. I never add fruit to this baby!

From a bottle, i’ve been interested in trying quite a few white beers because theyre good. This one feels more like an ale than others ive tried, less fizzy bubbles. Good taste.

Ugly brown with some yeast floaters. Dense, creamy, white head. Yeast, wheat, clove, light fruitiness-aroma. Same flavor with a bit of spice and some subtle, crisp hops. Refreshing medium body with plenty of carbonation. Excellent hefeweizen.

This stuff was closer to the Belgian White beers that I’ve had than the German Hefeweizens. More of that Belgian-style spice, and fruit. Lighter yeast. Still pretty cloudy appearance though. Not too shabby, but I like Franziskaner better.
