Pours opaque yellow-orange with a quickly disappearing white head. Yeast and wheat spice aroma. Taste is wheat with some tartness. Overall a good clean and refreshing beer.

Butters (4038) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2009
Sampled at the Impromptu Butter’s 6th cellar clearance. Hazy bright yellow pour with golden highlights and wispy white head. Nose of lemon citrus, clove, pepper. Flavors of lemon, spice, and some yeast. Very good for the style. Good carbonation with some creaminess. One of the better german hefe’s i’ve had.

Pours a white head with a hazy golden body. Smells of bubblegum, clove, and some banana. Tastes the same. Smooth body. Enjoyed drinking this.

Dorwart (2506) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2009
Good sized bright white head of fine bubbles. Minimal carbonation. Light grassy and fruity aroma. Some white grape, bananas and some tomato. Pretty sweet smelling. Color is a hazy golden orange. Flavor is sweet and not much in the way of wheat. More light grape and lemon. Bit of spices also. Finishes sweet again with some lingering fruit. A very unusual hefewezen.

TaxiDriver (1694) - Stadland, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2009
Bottle. The white large creamy head stays relatively long, the body is clear and dark yellow. The aroma is sweet, light fruity, reminds me a little bit of an sweet cake, rather unusual for a Weizen. The taste is light sour and mild. The beer is light, creamy and with not much carbonation.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2009
Bottle. Pours a yellow orange body with a white head. Fruity bananas, lemon zest, a note of bubblegum. Thin mouthfeel with some malt and wheat. Light spiciness. Eh so so.

(bottle - 500 ml fliptop) Cloudy golden pour with a thick and foamy white head. Aroma is light and sweet. Some wheat and yeast but tons of tropical fruit. Bananas abound followed by a very light hint of clove and orange peel. Almost smells like a banana popsicle. Flavor has much of the same sweetness mixed with a very nice and spiced wheat middle. Cloves and allspice are present in the middle with a fruity and yeasty finish. Clean and lightly spicy.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 8, 2009
A quite delicious german hef from the mother land. It pours a cloudy hazey lazy golden colour with a medium size white head with decent froth and intriquite lacing down the glass. Banannas, green apple,clove, orange peel on the nose. Soft spice on the palate, tropical fruit- reminds me of runts.

Always enjoy seeing the bottles with these funky tops. Bob shared his bottle at the super bowl. Very nice cloudy appearance, thick white head. Egg and banana nose. Sharp sour palate, some bananas. Decent.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - FEB 2, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2009 Aroma is awesome on this one. Bubblegum and must, just like a GHef should be. Appearance is almost grey - strange. Pours with tons of fluffy head. Flavor is a strange mix of diactyl and sugar. Not the greatest Hef.
