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.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2006 (04.21.06) 16 oz brown bottle from Beergeek.biz. 5.4% ABV. Batch 9165. Puured hazy orange with large white head. No discernable carbonation. Sweet malt, fruit and spicy clove in the nose. Medium boded beer that starts with light sweet malt and smoky/clove/banana ester flavors. Finished dry with light malt fade. Light hop bitterness detected. Well-balanced and delicious, both this beer and the dark versions are probably the finest hefeweiss beers that Iíve tried thus far. (07.06.06) UPDATE. On tap at Firkins, Libertyville, IL. Spicy smokey aroma. Poured hazy orange with medium white head. Soft carbonation. Light-to-medium bodied beer that starts with light malt sweetness and smoky clovey flavor. Some banana esters noted. Finished dry and clean. Refreshing. This is an excellent hefe, as good as, if not better than the bottled version. One of my favorite hefe beers. Ratings stay the same.

vyvvy (4625) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 31, 2006
Pours hazy / cloudy yellow with a large pillowy head. Aroma has citrus and banana and a very clean smelling sweetness. There is also a bit of bread to the aroma. Light to medium bodied beer with lots of carbonation, but soft enough not to interfer with the flavors. Taste has lots of banana and light bits of orange. The finish has some prickliness from the carbonation as well as flavors from the intial taste mixed in with some cloves. Very nice beer.

Orange colored, strongly hazy appearance. Medium sized vanishing white head. Fine aroma with spices, sweetness, banana and yeast, spices fit here well. Medium bodied. Flavor has also spices with banana and yeast, aftertaste is lasting with yeast, mild dryness and alcohol. Fine weisse!

macbar (30) - ITALY - MAY 25, 2006
Cloudy appereance, pale golden colour, huge and really persistent head. Spicy aroma with hints of banana. This wheat beer has the sweetest flavour Iíve ever found in this kind of beers, really malty, with some good banana and pear traces. Spicy aftertaste, with few bitterness. Very drinkable and pleasant, simply one of the best wheat beers on the market.

bigcat03 (211) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - MAY 20, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2007 Bottle from Johns Grocery poured into 20oz tumbler - Pours hazy gold with a LONG lasting 3.5 finger white head that leaves some nice lace; A pleasant aroma of wheat (duh), malt, and some light banana to the nose; Lots of citrus and a little malt on the initial taste (orange mostly); Slightly sweet, but not too much (they read my mind); A very wheaty backtaste that isnít bitter or sour at all; This is a DAMN good beer! Possibly the best hefe Iíve had thus far. ReRate of sorts: Bought a couple of bottles while in Germany. Just as I remembered. Absolutely wonderful from start to finish. The best hefeweizen Iíve had bar none.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 17, 2006
Sampled on tap. This is indeed a delicious beer. Lots of wheaty flavor, baking spices and a dose of lemony acidity, with just a hint of banana. Without a doubt, one of the top hefeweizens.

WhiteAlePower (91) - Long Island, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2006
Absolutely PERFECT! Everything from the aroma to the flavour to the head was just what I;d want from a hefe-weizen! Beautiful cloudy haze witha nice bright white head. The flavour ranges from typical wheat beer to a nice citrus finish! The aroma is sweet, yet strong enough to grab your interest. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

When Iím in the mood for a hefeweiss, this baby pretty much tops em all! Extremely refreshing session style. Great summer beer! I liked the Hacker Pschoor and this one might be a touch better. Yum!

Bottle. Cloudy orange/gold with a white head. Aromas are yeast, citrus and banana with spices. Flavours are soft sweet malts with wheat. Also has bready yeast and banana with lemon. Very refreshing with a moreish dry finish. Very nice.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2008 bottle - Pours hazy gold with a big, enduring head. It smells mainly of citrus and yeast. The flavor is both sweet with malts and sour with considerable citrus notes that are more apparent than Iíve usually found in the style. The finish is crisp and mostly sweet with maybe a hint of spice. Pretty good. draft - Spice was more apparent. Tasty citrus notes and an excellent body for this style bring it up another notch.
