3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy appereance, pale golden colour, huge and really persistent head. Spicy aroma with hints of banana. This wheat beer has the sweetest flavour I’ve 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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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 isn’t bitter or sour at all; This is a DAMN good beer! Possibly the best hefe I’ve 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 I’ve had bar none.

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.

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 I’m 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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 I’ve 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.

After the 1st taste, it took me back 30 years to when I was in Germany and had my 1st taste of German beer. So smooth, so tasty, so good. Definitely 2 thumbs up

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2006 Poured this one into my favorite stein & cranked up "Ein Prosit Der Gemutlichkeit" on the stereo! Three bottles filled my stein and a 3 inch head crested the top! The aroma had a burnt clove or annis scent. The brew was savory and had an appreciable aftertaste of spice and malt! Highly recommended.
