Lovely cloudy rich amber colour. A lovely beer if a little too carbonated. Brilliant for summer evenings - it is very easy to drink.

(Bottle) Pours a hazy yellow/light amber color with a silky white head and great amount of hefe. Aroma of yeast, wheat, and slight citrus. Taste includes some clove as well. Full mouthfeel, with lively carbonation. A classic example of an excellent hefeweizen.

absolutely my favorite Hefe. Light and refreshing with a doughy and clover taste. I could drink these all day in the summer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 500mL Bottle. A hazy tower of golden honey fills my weizen glass, transitioning nicely from a pale pear skin color at the bottom to a richer blood orange fog at the top. Two fingers of soapy white foam rests calmly on top, attractively, but a taller, rockier head would make it even better. Aroma of creamy banana yeast phenolics; very light and milky with an almost vanilla ice-cream like bread pudding character. Not much in the way of spice aromatics, but it doesn’t need it; simple, elegant, and clean. A hint of lemon acidity adds a refreshing element to the bouquet. Light bodied, spritzy carbonation that explodes on the palate in a burst of sizzling bubbles. There’s a bit more yeasty spice in the flavor than found in the aroma; less banana and more white pepper and restrained clove. The mild spiciness melds nicely with the spritzy carbonation, creating a flavorful level of refreshment. Some semi-tart, dry wheat characters linger a moment after the flurry of bubbles clears, and then gives way to a finish of mild yeasty spice. A well-deserved classic; nothing extravagent, but refined all the same.

Very appealing hefe that reminds me of Munich! Great flavor and excellent appearance. The lacing is dominant and the aroma has the nice wheat citrus flavor. Fanastic body with this beer that make it an excellent accompnayment to food and fun. It is exceptional summer beer for a hot afternoon near a pool.

A classic german hefeweizen. I became addicted to this traditional brew in Munich and have been hooked ever since. The beer pours with a solid head. Body is cloudy. Taste is smooth, spicy and consistent throughout with hints of banana/fruits. Very smooth finish.
