3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in the rake. Alround rating: Quite wheaty, banana is subtle, quite a bit of peppery hop character, its far too carbonated for me. I think this is a decent drink, but i think people are getting carried away when they are rating this higher than weinstephan.

wow, really surprised that this is rated so high, i would have to agree with the last post, im shocked its higher than schneider weisse which i would consider one of the best of the style. its a really good version, but 95? questionable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Vinens Verden, Odense.
Pours very muddy, pale yellow with a big, creamy, white head. Lovely wheaty aroma with some banan and cloves. Low carbonation, fine creamy and lightly grainy mouthfeel. Flavour is rather sweet, good banana, some green apple, light zesty citrusy hops. Light coriander and cloves in the finish. Long, lingering wheaty and light hoppy aftertaste. Yes, this is a very good hefe, but there are so many better and cheaper ones in Germany.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy yellow orange with a firm and lasting white head. The yeast aroma of clove and banana is rather subdued, with a touch of grass. Sweetish grain flavour with a spicy touch. Nice and drinkable, but doesn’t do much that any German standard weiss couldn’t do.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark cloudy yellow with a white head. Banana and bubble gum aromas. The flavor is a great hefe. Sweet banana malts with just the right balance to make sure the sweetness is just right. Easy drinking flavorful brew. I enjoyed being able to taste pronounced flavors that I enjoy from a hefe with a good body to back it up. One of Sierra Nevada’s better offerings. I could sit around and drink this beer all day and never get tired of it. Perfect for any time.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer pours a cloudy yellow-orange with a small white head. The aromas are light bananas, lemon zest and slight cloves (although not that strong). The flavors are light bananas and mild cloves. While this is a great representation of the German style hefe by an American brewer, it did fall a little short for me but I did like it. Cheers

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours hazy golden with little white head.
Banana bubblegum nose, quite nice.
Flavour isn’t as full as I’d like, but all the banana and bubblegum is there. Light carbonation contributes a silky mouthfeel, body slightly watery. Finish is quite fruity.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a cloudy yellow with a creamy white head that had a thin layer lasting and left light lace. Very nice wheat, citrus, and clove blend in the aroma. The flavor was much the same but just a step back compared to the aroma. Medium body and a light clove aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Cloudy golden, no head. Some bubblegum and banana esters. Sweet with fairly clean mouthfeel, notes of glue, slight fruityness. The clean mouthfeel makes it a bit sterile. To style, but falling within the lower end of the spectre.
