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.

Paulaner and Erdinger move aside. This stuff was great, and my new favourite. I’m suprised I waited as long as I did to try this. Poured a light brown with a thick frothy head. Fruity, yeasty, and somewhat spicy aroma and taste. Strong, but pleasant tastes of oranges and pears all the way through. Great Hefeweizen, I shall be having this again soon.

Bottle. Unlike most weissbier this is a darker amber color. Very nice look and creamy head. You will actually find yeast at the bottom of your glass as you drink. This was my introduction to hefeweizens and really turned me on to them. Unfortunately, I cannot find it where I live.

Michael Jackson’s Ultimate Beer book features this as the prime example of the Southern German Hefeweizen so I had to try it. The body perplexed me- clear amber as opposed to your typical cloudy, unfiltered hefeweizen. The head was nice- big creamy and fizzy. The aroma was subtle- yeast, cloves, and spice. The smooth and again, subtle banana flavor was delivered with strong carbonation that sings on your tongue followed by a sharp cleansing finish. This is a good hefeweizen- worthy of being the prime example? No, I think Paulaner deserves that distinction.

Clear copper color with thin white head. Aroma of sweet malts and wheat with a hint of spice from the yeast. Taste starts off with sweet malt flavors and then becomes a bit grainy with some yeast spiciness. Then midway a sweet fruity flavor appears that seems to go from figs and apples to banana and then back to figs and apples. Nice.

This was one of the first beer styles I had that turned me on to beer. I was in Germany during my early 20’s, at a biergarten during a beautiful spring day. It may have been Schneider Weisse, too, but I can’t remember. Poured with a sticky, huge, largely bubbled white head. Aroma like citrus, clove, and bread. Very lively carbonation. Flavor reminds me of a Wit somewhat, except that this is vastly more crisp and refreshing. Extremely smooth malt flavor, some clove and banana in there too. Alcoholic strength looming in the background... reminds me that when I had this at the aforementioned biergarten, I went on a wild bike ride with a girl who was a bit more accustomed to drinking and cyling than I was... weeee! Mineraly, mildly hoppy and dry finish. Great beer. There’s a lot there to taste and think about.

Bottle. Dark amber beer with a huge beige head. Banana, clove, wheat aroma. Banana, wheat flavor. Nice balance. Lighter bodied and easy drinking.
