Poured on draft into a weizen glass. Appearance is a densely hazy straw color with an everlasting head of white foam. Aroma is loads of fresh cut oranges, spices like coriander and cardamom, and loads of bananas and other esters. Taste is just like the aroma. This beer is what I feel every hefeweizen should aim for. This beer is delicious.

Growler. Light yellow hazy pour. Looks like pear juice. Aroma and taste of clove, citrus, and banana. Wonderful.

Pours a cloudy yellowish orange. Aroma of orange and yeast. Taste is banana and citrus with acid on the palate. Not bad.

Light and crispy. Lots of great fruit flavors in the nose. Some crispy and wheat flavors. A bit of hops in there. Decent.

Phone rate. $6 draught. Cloudy bright gold with 2 1/2 finger white, hood retention. Mod to high banana, mod spicy clove, wheat backend, as expected. Flavor still dominates with banana , wheat following with a little less clove behind. A tad sweet, but maybe it’s the bananas. Semi-dry, bitterness minimal. Mod prickly carbonation with a medium body. Craftsman still makes the best US made German hefe, IMO, as I like the wheat and clove more than the banana. This would be 2 or 3 on my list, however.

draft... murky dark honey gold, nice off white head, great lacing... sweet nose, candy with banana, a bit of a light skunk finish... tastes much more bitter than I thought it would, its ok, nothing special

On Draught@Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Hazy yellow colour with a fairly small white head. Some yeast and citrus in the nose. Lively carbonation. Quite a big hit of sourness in the flavour. A strange and frankly not the greatest interpretation of the style, which seemed to miss out on many of the key traits inherent to Hefeweizens.

HenrikSoegaard (10104) - Randers, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2011
Draught. Frothy white good mostly deminishing head. Yellow colour. Moderate malty and hoppy and not very fruity aroma. Moderate bitter flavor. Slightly sour. Average moderate bitter finish. Oily palate.

RasmusOtt (968) - Aalborg, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2011
@ Tap at Mikkeller Bar. - Pours a hazy dark yellow. Aroma is tropical fruits, sour yeast and a bit tart. Taste is sour and fresh with citrus, green apples, grapes and maybe some vinegar.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2011
On tap. Pours an opaque golden with hardly any head. Dry, citrusy nose with a whiff of yeast. Medium body, lively carbonation, dry citrusy notes - quite tart actually. Not that many banana or yeast accents. Very mediocre, yet still more authentic than most American attempts at a Hefe. 230111
