tedovertu (283) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - NOV 16, 2009
Missing the maltiness and balance of a true great hefe. The aftertaste is actual better than the beer itself. Found at a BP gas station in Wisconsin Dells. Drinkable but not great.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2012
#251 Hellgelbes und leicht trübes HW. Im Aroma klar fruchtig mit dominanter Banane. Im Antrunk sämig nach Frucht und schöner Hefenote. Im Abgang nur ganz wenig Hopfen. Wiederum ein überzeugendes Bier aus Schwelm! Test vom 4.1.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,12,11,12,12 - 11,70

kevnic2008 (8246) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2012
Misty golden with a white, creamy film. Spicy, clove and light malty nose. Light acidic, light sweet flavors with a spicy edge. Light to medium body.

kiwianer (3340) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 29, 2012
Die Schaumkrone hält nicht lange, trüb-oranger Körper, riecht sehr bananig. Schmeckt dick hefig, etwas bananig, etwas citrus-herb, nicht so Süffig und Erfrischend dafür ist die Hefe zu intensiv, Geschmacklich aber nicht schlecht. Ohne Höhepunkte. Fazit: Naja wenn man nichts anderes hat, kann man es trinken. Langweilig! Test vom 31.10.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,7,7,7,9,7 - 7,20

Kristall-König (2257) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2011
Optisch verwöhnt das Schwelmer HW den Biertrinker und ist bemüht auch die weiteren Kriterien gut zu erfüllen. Bananig-nelkenartiger Geruch, dem ein fruchtiges Geschmackserlebnis folgt. In der Mitte fällt eine gut gesetzte Bitterkeit auf. Im Abgang dominieren wieder Nelkenaromen. Das Schwelmer Hefeweizen hat mir gut gefallen. Man kann es als einen gelungenen Wurf betrachten.Test vom 7.1.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Koelschtrinker (10848) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 7, 2011
Frisch isses, spritzig isses. Ein wenig aromatischer könnts sein. Hefig, fruchtig, im Nachgeschmack eine dezente Herbe, all das ist schon vorhanden. Wie mein Vortester bereits erwähnte, dieses Bier hat keine großen Fehler. Das besondere Etwas fehlt allerdings. Test vom 27.12.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,12,12,8,12,12 - 11,20

harrisoni (13897) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2010
500ml bottle thanks to Erzengel, thanks Gabriel. Hazy gold with touch of orange. Lasting beige head. Wish I had a proper Hefe glass to drink this from. Why don’t I own one? Must buy one at the next BF I go to. Orange and banana estery aroma. I rather enjoy the orange/tangerine fresh aroma. Continues to be light and fresh in the mouth. Decent little light Hefeweizen. Not the most complex, not the most tasty, but I do like the aroma. Some ok yeast. Ultimately a very light hefeweizen

brekeriet (139) - SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2010
Bottle 500ml. Aroma: clove, a bit skunky, banana, bubblegum, diacetyl. Appearance: golden, hazy, minimal head. Taste: lightly bitter, a bit umami. Too low carbonation.

Really liked this Bavarian hefe. Nice and nosey, lots of banana, right up my alley.

checkmatei1 (765) - Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2010
bottle: Poured a cloudy bright yellow with a thick white head. The aroma was yeast, banana, spice, and lemons. The flavor was tasty, yeast, lemons, and spice. Overall, a refreshing hefe.

jfb (3968) - Freising, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2009
(bottle) pours a hazy deep golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of peanuts and wheat, with a light fruitiness. flavour is the same, but much too heavy on the wheat, quite unbalanced. medium body and carbonation.
