COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nothing refreshes you more than this naturally cloudy wheat beer with its wonderful yeasty fragrance and taste. Goes well with dishes that do not have too intensive a flavour, especially that Bavarian speciality 'Weisswurst' or white sausage.

This Hefe Weizen tasted hoppy not sweet, which is what I like, because I usually drink Pilsners. A nice orange-yellow color with a big frothy head, which lasted. Highly carbonated. A great thirst quencher. I paid $7.99 for a 6 pack. So dollar for dollar, you can’t beat this Wheat Ale. Highly recommended.

50cl bottle at De Baiard, Amsterdam, 12-2-07. Cloudy gold-brown with a thick, sustained head. Powerful banana/clove aroma of a good hefe. The flavor is clean and dryer than others I’ve had, and has the accompanying wheat phenols in a refreshing and crisp package. The best weissbier I’ve had yet.

My favorite beer. So rich and complex. I always feel like there are new flavors hiding in every glass of it. This is the template for a perfect wheat beer as it does not overpower you with the fruit or spices but rather balances them with a wheat taste going down and hops taste afterward.

themightyomega (92) - New York, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Botle. Pours very hazy yellow. Medium white head, lasts a bit. Smells of bread, spice, the vaguest hint of banana. Tastes of citrus, wheat, spice, with hops bitterness coming in at the end. They’ve been brewing for nearly 1000 years, seems they know what they are doing.

fiulijn (17458) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2007
Draught at Freaking Frog, Las Vegas, 6% ABV
Cloudy deep blond color; creamy head. Nice aroma, balanced, with wheat, light spices, very light banana and cookies. Medium body, some sweetness, some spices, wheat; ending quite dry, and with a strong bitterness. Quite good.

TrefwoordPunk (863) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2007
bottle 50 cl. Pours a cloudy yellow/golden with a big but very fast-fading white head. The initial taste isn’t even the best of this beer. There is citrus, grass and some banana. But then the long hoppy aftertaste comes in! Really, really good!

decaturstevo (5696) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 16, 2007
A hazed golden orange pour with a thick gooey lacing. Very nice spiced aroma. A fuity flavor with hints of clovve and a lot of bannana. Carbonation is ok but it was a bit fizzy. Palate was solid. A very good offering for the style has alot of the characteristics needed for the style.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - NOV 9, 2007
Pours a hazy golden with a thick white head. Aroma is of sweet clove, wheat malt and light, fresh fruit. Taste is exquisitely pointed, refined and crisp. After drinking so many American incarnations of the style, its lovely to try the granddaddy from which they all have descended. Sweet banana taste balanced by clove. Has a distinctly German feel to it. Great beer.

Along with Denisons the best Hefe out there. Enjoyed first @ Gollem in Amsterdam & again @ Ellicottville Beer Festival. Creamy cloudy clovey. Delicious

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - NOV 4, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2008 Arguably a benchmark for Hefeweizen, this is incredible and perfectly exemplifies the traits of this style. It is hazy gold with a huge, dense, thick white head that lasts forever. The aroma is honey and pears. The palate lively. The taste is crisp, sweet before leaving a dryish but smooth finish, it tastes of wheat and biscuit with vague fruit and transforms to the paradigmatic bubble gum finish, being an almost minty, bitter, old-fashioned bubble-gum flavour like Dubble Bubble.
