very good hefeweizen. Pours amber, with a big off white head. Aroma is of banana, clove, the usual suspects. Taste is also banana and spicy with some caramel and sweetness. Well balanced, a good summer beer.

A gift from stretchmonster--TY. More color and head than I expected. Smells like baby food, banana malt-o-meal. Warming dimished the flavor leaving somewhat of a bitey finish. But fresh and cold a nice drink.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2007 Pours a hazy darker brown/amber color. Decent fluffy head that faded fairly quickly. Flavors of malt, wheat, banana, citrus, nutmeg... a pretty complex dunkelweizen. It seemed to be slighly more carbonated than the usual, I found this to be a plus. Crisp and refreshing, despite its heavy array of flavors. Definitely a very smooth and easy-to-drink beer, and an above-average dunkel.

Hazy amber color with a small white head. Sweet malt and banana aroma. Banana flavor with wheat and light malt in the end.

A monstrous creamy head tops a cloudy amber pour, a bit darker than most hefe’s. The off white foam lasted until the bottom of the glass. The aroma has the usual suspects - banana, clove, etc. The huge head and impressive effervescence makes one suspicious that this is over carbonated, but that is simply not the case. Very fine, small bubbles and a notable bready malt base make for a very pleasant mouthfeel. There’s an underlying light bitterness in the finish, but the sourness is more evident. A very nice hefeweizen in the classic Bavarian tradition.

Very dark beer, for a wheat. But it smells and tastes like a good wheat.

500 mL bottle. I was surprised with how dark it poured for a hefe-weiss. Cloves and bubblegum in the nose, with a nice spiciness coming through. Flavors of bubblegum and cloves are dominate. Nice hops in the finish; maybe a bit more so than in other hefes that i’ve had. All around, a very good hefe-weizen.
