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.

A huge creamy, white head sticks to the sides of the glass on this one. A bread and banana with lots of yeast dominate the aroma and flavor profile.
Not a huge fan of wheat beers in general, but this is solid, if understated.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours out a hazy gold with a creamy white head that disipates quickly. Muted nose of lemon grass, honey dew, banana and clove. The flavour is mostly standard banana and clove with biscuity, wheaty flavours and some lemon zest. Thin bodied, but slightly creamy, effervescent mouthfeel.

Pours a hazy golden with a big frothy white head that dies quick. Big melon, banana in the nose with a minor clove afterthought. Tastes all compliment eachother well. Everything in the nose dances on the palate. Medium and crisp in the mouth. So drinkable its not funny.

The bottle looks simple but good. The beer is too dry for a hefeweizen and too less fruity. I exspected more.

Wow. Poured a yellow, cloudy color with a huge white head that lasted throughout the drinking. Aroma was rather sweet. It was a wonderfully clean and dry drink with a nice presence of cloves. Definitely my favorite hefe to date.

Very pleasantly surprised by this. In my early beer geek days this is definitely the best wheat beer I’ve had. Lots of flavour. The kind of drink Willy Wonka and Oompa Loompa’s make. I’ve been turned off by some of the popular dish water I’ve tried. Not shit loaded with fruit, which is a good thing unless you like to drink out of a tarts handbag. Oldest brewery in the world, since 1040 it says on the bottle. I opened it at 10.40, near the time and I waited just to be a geeky little twat. He he he. Ooh yeah, I like this. Won me respect for wheat beer. Until I try better this is like Pauli in Goodfellas, got to show respect but you know he’ll see you right in the end. Cheers.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2008 Bottled 50cl. It pours a hazy orange beer with a beautiful big white head. Vanilla and wheat in the nose. Bubblegum and strawberries showing up too. Vanilla, banana, lemon and spices in the taste. Some lemon sneaking in, giving a good balance. Wonderfully smooth and creamy. Surprisingly light bodied and rather sour. The finish is dry, smoky with hints of oranges. Refreshing, delicate and complex. A great beer. Additional comment: The taste: Extremely pleasant. Peppery, smoky components which are accompanied by a lot of banana. A hint of mint. Excellent

Excellent hefe-weizen and a very different taste on tap from the bottle. This beer is a highly recommended hefe!
