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.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2004
My tastebuds are broken. I have yet to taste any Hefe-Weisse that tastes anything like a banana. This one didn’t either, but everyone else, as usual, thought it did. Smelled clean with faint traces of earthy hay and alcohol. Poured wonderfully. Much darker than the usual hefe. This one was a watery brown color. Familiar yeasty hay flavors. Very light and watery finish. Mouthfeel is thin and bubbly with abundant carbonation. Not overwhelmed, but I’d drink it again if someone else was paying.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2004
Poured cloudy amber...smells of cloves, malt, banana...very malty right off the bat, then spicy and smooth...not very wheaty...but the finish is dry and yeasty...definately not your generic wheat...

16 oz bottle. After drinking hundreds of these in Berlin in the early 90s (3 per week for 100 weeks) I finally get around to providing a rating. Starts of with lots of banana, then finishes with clove and a hint of licorice. Benchmark hefeweizen.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2012 From bottle, dark cloudy amber tones with a nice white head. Spicy aroma with clove, orange peel, vanilla and banana but mellow palate that smoothly moves through thanks to a well-balanced carbonation. Medium sweetness with no bitterness that stays in mouth for a long time. Refreshing at the end with a long bready finish. This is for me the reference for a Hefe-Weizen, consistenly excellent, either from bottle or from tap, it delivers. Revised rating up to 4.5 from original 4.1.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 26, 2004
Pours awefully clear amber color with a big white head. Aroma is a nice banana spice malt mixture. Flavor is very similar to aroma with a wheaty fruity finish. The start has a big difference from the dry wheaty finish......I’m not describing this one well. I like it, but it is different from the other hefe I have had. Perhaps less yeasty and the carbonation is a bit less lively which seems odd. Very nice and a refreshing.

badgerben (4479) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2004
Dark amber color with an initially large head, but it melted away quickly. Aroma has some ester involved. A very mild dusting of wheat in the taste with some hops, but not as much malt as you might expect. It has a spiciness that is reminiscent of some Belgian beers. An okay tasting brew, but I wouldn’t hold it up as the standard Hefeweizen of any origin, let alone German.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Has a spicy aroma with some skunkiness and some fruit. Amber in color with not much for a head. Seemed to have some sourness. Has a yeasty taste with cloves.

Amber body, full head, spicy and some fruitiness-citrus and banana, lots of carbonation Vary good overall.
