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.

All around an excellent Hefe. Dark golden pour, light white head which dissipates quickly. Fresh clove and spearmint aroma. Crisp hefe flavor - bubblegum and bananas. Very refreshing. Thick, clingy mouthfeel - yet refreshing. A good summer refresher.

Good head, good color, stronger flavor than I have experienced in comperable Weizens. A good thirst quencher with a lingering taste on the palate. Great on a hot day.

Light chestnut color with a large foamy, white head. A mild banana and citrus aroma. Stronger flavored than most hefe-weizens. Nice malted wheat flavor. Highly carbonated and refreshing.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2007 Wow! Just slightly lighter in color than Aventinus. This is dark for a hefeweizen...poured a slightly clouded copper-orange color with those lovely big natural bubbles streaking up the glass sides.... capped by a big frothy meringue head that stacks out of the glass and stays for the ride lacing up the sides of the weizen glass. Wonderful aromas of apple-banana with caramelized malts and a nice dab of clove-like spice. Starts tart and peppery from the effervescence and citrus tastes up front... then the flavors expands in the mid palate and on the tongue, to a big wheat-malt departure with the apple-banana-clove yeast signature and a nice understated musty toffee taste from the malts. The finish is fairly dry with a nicely balanced sweet-tart aftertaste. This is a sturdy, old style wheat beer with bottle conditioned qualities that send its unique complexity over the top. I love this one.

Light lemony aroma, citrus, bread. Cloudy light amber, visible carbonation with foamy white lacing head. Medium body, light-medium carbonation. Starts wheaty, citrus, a little sweet. Nice rounded acidity, no bitter. Bubblegum clove finish, with sweet banana. Mild after, very refreshing. Solid weizen.

Light brown body and a great big white head. A nice light typical wheat nose. Lots of streamers and well-carbonated. A great hefe.

Eructoblaster (3032) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2004 Pours an amazing cloudy terra-cotta body topped with a thick off-white bubbly head. Yeasty aroma with various hints of spices, malt, fruits (citrus, banana) and herbs. Mouthfeel has a good balance of carbonation, maltyness, yeastiness and fruityness. Long and wonderful final. Along with Maisels Weisse and Hacker-Pschorr, this is one of my top-3 bavarian Hefeweizen.

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.

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.
