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.

poured from a 12oz bottle. Citrus aroma, spicy, orange in color, cloudy like most good hefe’s, very frothy head, medium sweetness, lively, I’ve never been wild about this style, but I must say this is the best hefe I’ve ever drank. An outstanding brew.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2006 Pours light orange / dark gold with a large, thick, white head. Smells fantastic - like sweet breads (as in sugar+bread, not the sweetbreads as in veal glands), with some fruit (apple, banana). The flavor delivers what the aroma promises: doughy, wheaty, sweet, delicate hop bitterness, strong flavors of yeast which include crazy flavors - most notably apple and banana. Prime example of the style.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2009 Bottle split with Tronraner in a blind hefeweizen taste. Well, this was the clear winner. The aroma was the most powerful of the four with deep spiced notes of cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, banana, and a bit of dry yeast. Very aromatic. The flavor is a notch down from the complex, rich aroma, but it still has admirable nuances. Good balance of cloves, bananas, tangy yeast, and wheat. The finish was the driest in our tasting and very lingering with rich spiced notes. Just a slight hint at earth was noticed. This is a fantastic rich, complex hefeweizen.

On draft. Hazy gold color with a medium-lasting off-white head. Light citrusy aroma with some subdued yeasty notes. The flavor was lightly bready with a pleasant, tangy finish. Very nice and refreshing.

snowden719 (130) - USA - AUG 14, 2006
Pous a nice cloudy orange with a big white head that disapated quickly. Aroma is clove and banana. Flavor is a nice balance between banana, bubblegum and clove. Finish could use a hair more bitterness, but very well balanced overall.
