3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Recent bottle from Premiere Gourmet. Pours a beige body, with large but consistently fading head that whafts bannana and some other spiciness. Leaves the odd lace dot. Medium mouthfeel, with that unfiltered taste, and good carbonation, easy drinking hefe. Not the most outstanding I have had, but certainly very drinkable.

Hazy dark gold color with a lingering white head. Big spicy peppercorn aromas with grainy malts. Medium body with a chewy mouthfeel. Lightly tart wheat flavor with spicy clove and black pepper. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A extra-full-bodied nourishing Hefeweizen. Like a condensed traditional hefeweizen. Very good even if a bit heavy for the style.
How: Bottle 12oz (many). Consumed fresh soon after the beer release.
The look: Opaque dark yellow body topped by a medium white head
In long: Typical but unusually intense Hefeweizen nose with a truckload of bananas and fresh cereals. Body is as full as it gets for the style, this is like chewing hay. Simple but strong taste of young (greenish) bananas and compressed hay/straws. Very yeasty. No such things as spicy notes (coriander or others) and orange peels. Good amount of grassy hops. I drank my six-pack over the course of many days because I found it a little too sweet for the style. Very nourishing but not really refreshing. It loses a few points because of that but it remains a superior example of the style, this really is a Killerweis.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brewed in the USA..... Courtesy of AFI96 thanks Waylo !! Pours a hazy golden color with lots of carbonation and a small white head. Aroma of spices, wheat, bananas and yeast. Taste is much of the same with the addition of some lemon flavouring. Mouthfeel is medium in body with some tangy zest on the tongue. This would work well on a hot summer day !!!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beautiful deep creamy head, golden color. intense aroma of citrus, lemony zest. Sweet creamy mouthfeel. Malt notes creeps by light crispness of the hops and wheat. Yes you have the typical banana notes but the fruit notes are kept at a minimum.Would go great with a peach cobbler or apple pie. Could this be my favorite new hefe.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2009 Bottle courtesy of drowland. Pours a very murky yellow-orange. Active head response. Aroma has fair amounts of banana, chalk and wheat qualities. First sip has quite a nice bit of spice to it, with the zip of citrus and softer fruit. Wheaty with a touch of fruit. Aftertaste lingers for a short while but fades faster than desired. All in all, me likey.

Bottle. Pours a hazy light orange with a foamy 3 finger off-white head that results in spotty lacing. The nose is spicy yeast, citrus zest and malt. The taste is wheat, light bubblegum, spicy yeast and lemon zest with some sweet malt and light hops in the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Freshing brew - very good. hefe.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A massive cream head covers a hazy golden beer. The aroma is sharp and spicy. Tangy and astringent. Too much wheat and spice.
