3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16oz twist-off bottle from Jungle Jim’s in Fairfield. Code on the bottle reads "000063913 123191542". Poured into my weizen glass. Mildly hazy golden-yellow color. Thin white head. Few splotches of lace. Lightly wheaty nose, with a hint of banana and spice. Medium body. Softer, kind of smooth carbonation, but the texture has a slight roughness to it. More dry in the finish. Some light banana, wheat, little spice, light vanilla aroma. Light to moderate sweet taste, kind of spicy. Solid hefeweizen over all. Good to enjoy with lunch, especially with the 16oz serving size

Not a dazzling beer, but thirst quinching all the same. The nose is where this beer lost most of its points for me. However, worth trying.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A good solid Hefeweizen to enjoy at the Sprecher Pub, totally stylistically correct, but not excpetional. Like it on tap out on the patio, but not something I would get elsewhere.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a slightly cloudy yellow color with a medium fluffy white head that evaporates slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus and wheat. Light body with flavors of banana, sweet spice and a bit of grassy hops. The finish is sweet with a short fruity aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Picked up a few bottles after a tour of the brewery. This might be the best offering from Sprecher. A very good Hefe Weiss, that is creamy, with hints of clove, banana and citrus. A nice plus is 16 oz bottle.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from the bottle into a standard pint glass, and was not prepared for the extra four ounces, so I took my first few sips before I was ready. Cloudy, and light yellow, the pour produced little to no head (though to be fair, the beer was cold.) The aroma of this weisse is in keeping with the style, with strong notes of citrus and banana. The carbonation is good and not overbearing. Taste-wise, Sprecher has produced a bitter beer with medium sourness, with a medium body. There is a slight spiciness that can be tasted on the back end of the brew, which lends some complexity, though a strong metallic taste at the forefront diminishes the experience.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cloudy golden pour with little head. Smells of bananas and wheat. Tastes of the same with a sweet malty flavor. Not bad but not one of my favorite.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Hop City in Birmingham, AL. Pours a hazy yellow color, good carbonation. Typical wheat and orange smell. First Sprecher I've tried, and it's a good hefe.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
16oz, Sprecher bottle, twist-off. Hazy, golden yellow color, white head. Sweet, mature banana scent. Light tastes of fresh wheat. Airy body. Great for summer. Not like any Hefe I’ve had. Very good, well made. It is obvious its made to taste good. (3595)

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy yellow amber color with a mild scent of wheat. Has an almost organic like wheat and grain taste to it which is rather bold along with firm hints of orange. Rather filling and heavy in comparison to many hefeweizen beers. Definitely a good taste here, the only complaint I could really see anyone making is about the thicker volume the beer has.
