4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
The best German Hefe I’ve had hands down. Aroma was a beautiful thick banana with a hint of lemon. Pour was a near perfect cloudy gold with an inviting 2 finger white head. But the taste...woah the taste. Sharp tartness and banana with heavy yeast tones and a delicious citrusy note. Very heavy carbonation...tongue biting carbonation I call it. Almost perfect!

Nice fruity aroma. Banana. A little citrus. Clove. Pours a nice hazy orange with a yellowish bubbly head. Flavor is wheat, yeast, fruity esters. Lemon and banana are extremely prevalent. It finishes with a nice lemon flavor and a spritzy carbonation. This is a nice hefe. Damn good.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells of yeast, fresh cut grass, mild wet pine, rust and ripe banana peel. Very cloudy, with a thick head and a lasting lace. Lots of carbonation. Tastes of yeast and hay with a nice grainy orange taste, all in appropriate harmony. Palate is a little shy, but that is the only setback.

Bottle, Aikmans. Cloudy yellow colour with a huge white head. Surprisingly clean, with citrus and some grass. Some spices, little yeast. Mouth is not too thick, not too light, just about right. Palate is fruity and lasting. Rather surprisingly good.

Bottle from HEB. Nice couldy golden color and a large white head. Nice carbonation and smooth flavor. This is the epitome of hefeweizen IMHO. Nice yeasty undertones with a good spicyness. Very drinkable, very clean flavor. I don’t drink a lot of hefeweizen, but this certainly reminds me of what hefeweizen was when I lived in Germany.

bottle, huge frothy head, cloudy and golden color.... citrus and fruit tones.... Hefeweizen is not one of my favorite styles of beer - but this one was enjoyable in it’s appearance, and citrus aromas.

Universal characteristics of a hefeweizen, but WOW what a bold flavor. The mouthfeel is just about perfect for this sort of beer and the beer has just the right balance of spice and carbonation. This is a fantastic example of a hefeweizen and a winner in every way.

This beer is another winner from Weihenstephaner. Do they make anyting not worth drinking? Well, except their alcohol free beer of course.
