3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy orange-gold with a huge eggshell head. Classic hefeweizen aroma, with the cloves dominant over the banana. Very yeasty, too, and there’s some wheat, of course. The flavor is quite yeasty, with the banana playing a larger part than it did in the aroma. The aftertaste is quick and fruity. Very good.

Lots of wheaty goodness in the nose and body. Yeasty nose with a slight hint of bubblegum. Definently that classic weiss flavor going on here, and it is done well. As with most beers, this one is better on tap. There seems to be an extra fullness and sweetness that is lacking in the bottled version.

Above-average German hefe, enjoyable as a session beer. Not too much in complexity department. I would have liked to tasted more cloves/esters.

Hazy yellow/orange colour. Big white long lasting head. Aroma of bananas and cloves. Bananas and cloves in the flavor aswell. But also a malty taste with hints of hops in the aftertaste. This is a lovely weissbier.

The beer poured a semi hazy straw color with a nice white head that had good lacing. The aroma of this beer was of bananas and cloves. The taste was dominated with bananas, a little vanilla, cloves, and esters. This is a good hefe.

Not one of my favorite weisse beers, but still pretty good. I’m used to Schneider Original so the body on W is a disappointing.

500ml. bottle. Hazy golden/orange color with a large white head. Aroma of cloves, wheat malt and banana. Flavor was similar to the aroma, except the cloves were more prominent, with a bit of citrus as well.
