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.

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.

Norton (329) - Southside, Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2004
Bottled pint. Orangish gold hue; cloudy. Bits of swirling stuff. Head disappears quickly. Bready aroma. Nice yeasty tickle to back of throat. Crispy bite to it; peppy carbonation. This is decent but nothing to write Mom about.

Gorbalev (2924) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2004
Bottle. Poured much darker than expected. Light head that lingered. Some spicy scents in aroma, but very subdued. Refreshing crisp taste, good carbonation, and surprising malt character. A long lasting finish. Pretty good.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JUN 17, 2004
(on bottle)Not having traveld germany, my knowledge of local Weisbier isen´t that big. But this is, along with Maisels, the top of my line so far. A dark, hazy brew, with little or non of the anoying banana flavours as from belgian witts. Some vanilla though. Smooooth to drink, love that feelling, along with the smal bitter sirp in the end. A perfect thirstkiller for me.

Bottled (BB 09/2004)
Murky hazy brown-orange color, a bit like dunkelweizen. Big foamy white head. Citron-banana aroma. Banana, wheat, spicey flavors. Crisp, well-balanced mouthfeel, tickling carbonation. Nice sourish aftertaste.

beastdog75 (362) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Nice amber/copper color. Very spicy and clove-like in the aroma and in the flavor. There is a fruitiness in there along with a dry wheat flavor. Not much yeast sediment (the beer was only moderately cloudy), but still a good representation of the style.

leaparsons (8068) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2004
Cloudy dark orange with a big white head. Aromas are bananas and yeast with spices. Flavours are also bananas and spice with dry hops. Some sourness in there as well. Not bad at all.

skaughty (644) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2004
This may be the classic weisse, but it doesn’t look like all the others. This beer pours a dark amber color, and is much clearer and darker than its brethren. There is a more distinct malt backbone that dominates over many others that seem to waver towards banana or bubblegum. This is a clean refreshing pour, with the extra thickness that makes it linger.

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Indiana Ale Fest at Fort Wayne. Bottle. Poured no head, softly carbonated, semi-transparent with an orange hue. The aroma was malty, somewhat sweet, banana and clove. The taste was hoppy and clove with a smooth mouthfeel. Not impressed with this one and there are definitely better German Hefe’s out there IMO.
