3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cloudy orangey golden with the characteristic huge head. Banana aroma dominant, clove is also noticeable. Fruity flavours that are less in your face than suggested by the nose- nicely balanced banana flavours with yeast and spices for dry effect. Medium to full body, soft. A classic that does not disappoint.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’m curious how good this beer would be when it hasn’t had to travel halfway around the world. It pours a cloudy amber with a large, frothy, off-white and diminishing head. The aroma is of cloves, citrus, bananas and a solid yeastiness. Light and slick, it finishes crisp and clean. The flavor is a sweet yeasty front with a light citrus and banana segue to a solid wheat finish. A very clean and refreshing drinker; I could drink these all day long.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2011 It’s been a long time since I’ve geeked out on Hefes, but on this hot day in Carolina I thought I’d take a splash. And this one was just the ticket, with a big cloudy body, a lightly spiced palate, and a frothy mouthfeel. Really good and quaffable, on a par with Paulaner and Hacker-Pschorr.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a pretty pale hazy amber/golden. The head is thick, creamy, offwhite. The aroma is nice, banana, citrus, spice, sour. The flavor is sour, spicey, banana, and more citrus. The palate is smooth and crisp while remaining full. This is a delicious german hefeweizen and I am beginning to adore the style.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle in Weinhestephan glass. Pours cloudy pale yellow orange with lasting white head and nice lacing. Aroma of banana clove bubblegum. Perhaps the best hefe aroma. Extremely refreshing flavors of sweet orange fruitiness. Medium light body. Perhaps a hint too much carbonation, but refreshing mouthfeel nonetheless. Delicious, I’ll have twelve.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2010 Bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget. Hazy golden with large but short fluffy white head. Standard weizen aromas of banana, clove and yeast. Medium bodied and smooth, still with a vivid carbonation. Very nicely balanced with a noticeable bitterness and a refreshing acidity. Very enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Aroma is dominated by the yeast’s soapy/musty smell. The malt has a grain aroma and the hops of lemon. Pear, allspice and clove are also noticable. The head is fizzy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is a clear yellow/amber. Flavor starts out acidic and finishes lightly bitter and salty. Palate is light and is between dry and watery, but is very crisp and semi-refreshing. Carbonation is fizzy and finishes slightly astringent. A good hefeweiss.
