3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice light bouquet of cloves and banana with a slight hint of fermentating vinegar alcohol.
Was’nt 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. I’m 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.

Dark amber color eith a thin white head. Aroma of bananas and spices. Flavor of bananas and spices with a sweet finish. Very full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Very good weizen.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 it’s cloudy and gray (the beer, or the weather for that matter).

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2009 Bottle - strong banana, orange, clove and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy brown-yellow color with nice head. Strong ripe banana, clove and wheat malt flavor. Strong carbonation/acidity. Very spicy - definitely a top level weizen as long as you get it fresh. Just doesn’t age well.

Golden brown color beneath a massive foamy white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, and light spices. Refreshing wheat with the slightest tartness. Crisp finish with subtle hints of clove. Not bad.
