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.

Crash (531) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2005
This beer sampled at Brew Ha Ha 2005: Pours a cloudy golden color with a good head that left pretty quick. Aroma was slightly fruity with a wheat background. Good taste with citrus and wheat.

thegreenrooster (3157) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 17, 2005
Pour is your cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is wheaty and vanilla. Flavor is nice. Lots of clove and yeast combine to make a nice banana flavor. Very silky and smooth as it goes down. I think the Franzikaner is better but this brew is very tasty. The Germans know how to make the best hefes!

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 8, 2005
On tap at Tyler’s in Durham, NC. Beautiful cloudy yellow color with a thick white head. Aroma is spicey and slightly fruity. Wonderful banana flavor with some hops and a lot of spices. Nice citrusy finish with a lingering yeast taste. Great beer.

winkle (476) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2005
Bottled: Pours and looks just like a good little hefe should - cloudy pale gold with a big white head.Aroma wheaty with the expected clove and citrus notes. Flavour is the expected tart wheat with under tones of banana and citrus. Smooth mouthfeel. Pretty good all round just missing some verve.

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Nice big head. But I think that some of that carbonation turned me a bit off on the palate. Good taste of wheat, citrus, and bannana.

lamas (1339) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 2, 2005
500mL bottle. A hazy straw pour with a thin, fizzy off-white head. Lots of bananas, clove and yeast in the aroma. Carbonation is VERY high, and unfortunately detracts from the taste quite a bit. Still, quite yeasty and tangy. Lemony and wheaty with just a touch of pepper in the finish. Thin-bodied. Very crisp and refreshing.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2005
Hazy golden orange with lots of big bubbles producing a medium sized head that receded gradually to a thin film. A yeast burst was the first impression of the aroma, with the typical banana & cloves evident, but not prominent. On tasting was where it all fell apart. The flavour was a bit bland, and the mouthfeel was quite rubbery and metallic, with too much carbonation. After looking forward to this being a fan of the hefe, I was a bit disappointed unfortunately.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2005
Very good Hefewizen. In my opinion, it’s better than the Franzikaner version, but is not quite so widely available.

stouby (3686) - Holbæk, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2005
Bottle, at home. Light amber with large white head, almost lasting, fine lacings. Aroma moderate malty, light hoppy and yeasty (citrus, fruit, refreshing). Flavor light sweet, moderate acidic. Light to medium body, watery, lively carbonated.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 29, 2005
UPDATED: APR 23, 2008 Typical hefe aroma of banana, bubble gum, and cloves. Taste is clean, bubbly, and slightly fruity. Mouthfeel is light and carbonation is high. The wheat comes through very clean in the finish, slightly less fruity tasting than Paulaner. Still the standard.
