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.

Pour is a golden with a decent head and a good amount of carbonation. Aroma of cloves, spice, and bananas. Taste is nice, more complex than most hefeweizens. Mouthfeel is light, with plenty of carbonation. Overall a nice German brew.

Sometimes Germans just know how to brew a great beer and this is one of them. Banana yeast nose, rigid foamy head, and soft golden body make this a well done, session-able, thirst quenching German Hefe-licious beer.

mistersinalin (381) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2008
It may be the oldest, and possibly the best from Bavaria, but the bottle I got stateside may have been old. It seemed to lack the expected levels of banana and cloves that I am used to. I would like to re-rate this when I have one on tap in Germany.

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - JAN 13, 2008
This is one of my favorites. A truly classic representation of the style. Extremely well balanced, and food friendly. Wonderful acidity, loads of cereal grain flavors, with a bit of chalkiness, lemons, bananas and cloves. Consistent from bottle to bottle.

Pours honey yellow with a thick, creamy head. Citrus aroma; flavor has grape, citrus and nutmeg notes. Very effervescent. Overall a good Hefe.

Headbanger (3803) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2008
16.9 oz bottle-A hazy yellow with a somewhat small head for a hefe and an aroma of cloves, banana, yeast and wheat. Taste of the same with some cloves. I feel this as being one of the lighter hefes but still very tasty.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 9, 2008
Pours a hazy yellow-brown with a big white head. Aroma is a nice spicy bannana and bubble gum. Taste is nice as well, with the same flavors coming through as well as some clove all while being extremely smooth. Very good.

Creamy banana and sugar without being overbearingly fruity. Delicious, highly recommended.

heavy (2736) - Split, CROATIA - JAN 6, 2008
02/01 0,5 l draught at Biergarten in Mariazell. Had murky golden body with bigger, creamy, long living head. Wonderful weizen aroma, fruity with banana, orange, some spices and bit of honey. Flavor was sweetish, fruity, but very empty bodied. Occasionally it also was ruined by minor unpleasant vegetable notes. Short and again watery finish, erasing nice aroma quickly. Not bad as it may sound, but missing so much character. I was specially surprised here when saw it is best European Hefeweizen. May rerate it from the bottle some time, although I doubt this was in bad condition.

Pours a hazy light golden color with a rather large head. Aroma of banana, bread, and a little clove. Seems a little dry, but still very good.
