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.

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.

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.

@ 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.

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
