3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber colored with some cloudiness, little yellow head which disappeared totally. Yeasty and fruity aroma, pretty standard for hefeweizen. Strong carbonation comes up in start. Flavor starts watery and sweet, ends with lasting banana and some yeast, which make aftertaste pretty nice. Too much carbonation for my taste, still crispy and refreshing brew, although not anything special.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 Draft at The Wharf, Aalborg, Denmark. Hazy, pale copper-brown colour. Creamy white head, which sinks. Yeast in the aroma. The flavour is hoppy with yeast. Fresh. Fruity. Not so powerful, but very well balanced. Soft. Not a lot of aftertaste.
Bottle. - 7 / 3 / 6 / 3 / 10. Pours a hazy light copper brown with a diminishing white head. Sweetish aroma; yeast. Nice. Flavour is sweetish and yeasty. Feels a bit thin. Thin finish. Slightly bitter and dryish with faint metallic notes. 09-03-07.

Nice light bouquet of cloves and banana with a slight hint of fermentating vinegar alcohol.
Wasínt impressed with the quick dissipating head not even a lace on the glass. Large bubble size would sum that up. Cloudy rust in color. What I like to do is before the bottle is empty I leave just a little of the elixir and swirl the contents to get the wheat that settled off the bottom. Taste was a little to light for me.
And even though Hefeweizen is my fav. This one has a nice wet mouthy feel but a little to wet for my likes. Not a real true hefe in my opinion. Could be more considered a light hefe. Iím just taking taste, but it does pack the punch of hefe. Putting all things aside I like it but it would be last resort if I can get better.

Cloudy bown colour. Nice, big thick head. Heavy cloves aroma. Taste is banana, yeasty, cloves. A bit lightbodied, which is the reason I rate this lower than my favourite weizens.

Looks like a Dunkel-Weisse beer and is smoother than most hefeweizen. Still, it has a lot of flavor of bananna and cloves packed in it.

Bottled. Poured a cloudy dark amber color with a rapidly diminishing off-white head. Flavor was very crisp and mildly fruity - banana and other tropical fruits came through. A great hefe.

A relatively standard but authentic hefeweizen that also happens to taste very good. One of the best of its kind; an excellent choice as an opening beer when you plan to drink several types in one sitting. Best on tap when itís cloudy and gray (the beer, or the weather for that matter).
