4.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2007 Pours out cloudy gold with a mammoth head. Aroma of bananas and bubblegum. Flavor is much of the same. Palate is pretty smooth and not overly carbonated. Would be a good beer for the golf course. One of the best hefes Iíve ever had. Enjoyable to drink. Significantly better than the Weihen Kristalweizen. Damn, this beer is better than I thought. I drank the half liter in like 15 minutes...itís tasty. (rerate) God I love this beer. Definitely the archetype of bavarian hefes. I can never imagine a time when i would not want to drink this. Thus the huge overall score. RERATE again. just got a new case of this from a more reputable distributor. i can tell this is a lot fresher. just a really creamy texture and flavor. Rerate. Iíve been through a few cases of this by now and i think that is quite a testament. This beer can do it all. if youíre just thirsty from a long day in the heat it quenches you. if you want a subtle yet sophisticated beer itís all there. i fucking love this beer and iím a hophead. so easy to drink, low in calories, unfortunately itís like $9 a six pack.

Pours a very hazy pale yellow topped with a two finger frothy head that slowly settles to a nice cap that stays throughout the entire beer and leaves behind lots of lacing.
Smell; really nice yeasty smell with a slightly over ripe bananas. Thereís a bit of lemony citrus going on as well as some cloves.
Taste; wheat and yeast stand out along with the bananas, thereís also some of that citric lemon and cloves. It has a bit of a spicy hoppiness in the finishand just a bit on the dry side. Mouthfeel is is medium bodied, with nice carbonation, and goes down so smooth.

Bottle. Pours pale, cloudy, and a small white head. Banana, citrus, and hay in the nose. Flavos was kinda thin- but not bad. Same as in the nose.

Wow, this is one of the best hefes Iíve ever had. Orange in it maybe, but certaily worth trying. I could actually drink more than one of these, rather than the usual struggle to get through a bottle.

In my opinion the best Waizen beer. Very clean and fruity taste, that reminds of banana. Nice and aromatic smell
