3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Pours a pale orange/yellow with a pillow-like white head. Aroma is amazing with some banana, orange peel, wheat, and nutmeg notes coming through. Medium bodied mouth feel. Spiced-up citrus wheat flavors pound the taste buds and not one time do they yield. I’ve definitely garnered a newfound appreciation for this style. Very good.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma is yeasty with esters of banana and coriander. Color is a hazy orange yellow with very good carbonation and a big thick head. Taste is light and fruity. Starting with medium body it goes down with a crisp feel. Finish comes on with a fruity yeast flavor and a mellow citrus taste then ends with a faint banana and coriander flavor and a gentle bitterness. After taste is clean with the citrus taste riding out the longest. This is one of the best Hefeweizens I nave ever had.

Bottle 0.5 l. Cloudy yellow, big white head. Nose is yeasty, a bit sour and wheaty. Flavor has wheat, yeast, some spiciness and sour acidity. Maybe a bit of citrus peel. Not much sweetness. Not as good as I would’ve hoped, too sour.

This beer pours a cloudy yellow with a large white head. WOW! Take one whiff and the aromas just overtake you! Bananas, cloves, all the things you expect from a true german hefe! Then you take a sip and enjoy all those wonderful things that make the german hefe such a great beer! The flavors of course emulate the aroma, bananas, cloves, etc... this is one well crafted beer and is an exemplary testimony of what a german hefeweizen should be! Cheers!

Pours a cloudy gold with a big white head. Fantastic aroma of yeast and banana, with hints of clove and hops. Slightly sweet and citrusy flavor, with the banana showing up again. A nice medium palate rounds out this deicious hefe.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served comfortably chilled from a 500ml bottle. Hazy, orange body with a thin, white head. Spicy aroma of cloves and some sweet fruits. Sweet, late banana flavour mixed with citrus fruits that help to counter some of the sweetness. Wheaty and spicy aftertones. Foamy mouthfeel. Well balanced weizen (Linköping, 26.01.2008).

Here’s a beautiful golden looker, with a wonderfully suspended cloudiness throughout, just below it’s modest head. The taste is a little too subtle to make it a favorite of mine, perhaps a little more citrus is what I’m looking for.
