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.

A darker yellow-tan color than the average hefeweizen with a healthy pillowy head and aroma of cereals, cloves, and a bit of yeast. Mouthfeel is full and creamy, rich. Taste here is dominated by the wheat malt, with banana flavor muted relative to other hefes. Light clove spice in the finish, but doesn’t have much sharpness. A unique hefeweizen indeed, more malty and rich than spicier, spritzier interpretations.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Bottle: Hazy yellow, very thick and somewhat dirty, large white frothy head, nice lacing, strong carbonation.   Clove on the nose, no real banana, slightly yeasty/bready.   Slight banana emergence on the tongue, cloves, and quite bready/doughy.   Wheaty mouthfeel, average body, but very clean and crisp.   Very slight citrus on the finish, bready, with lingering clove and spices.   An old standby when I want a German Hefe.

Bottle. Got this one from Homebrewerguy and saved it for a hot ass summer day. Here it is, and down it goes. Not bad nose in this golden beauty, but not as spicy as I had expected. Pours bubbly with a fine carbonation and a quickly disappearing head. Nose of straw, clove, and slight malt. Nice wheat beer flavor with a little banana, a little clove, and some other spices. Great yeast used here as the carbonation is perfect for a weissbier. Refreshing and easy quaff... not as good as Penn Weizen, but a fine brew.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2005 Aroma is banana big time, with clove and a little grassy. Taste is wheaty, clove and has a little sourness to it, which is a little different. One ill have again maybe after diner wasnt the best time to have it as it seemed a little bland. Re-rating: Excellent hefeweizen, better than before and never a dull moment with it.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 1, 2005
Poured with a deep white head that slowly diminished but some head lasted throughout. Little lacing. Strong smells of banana, with some mango and dough. Great lemon, hoppy flavor. Light body. Great for the warm afternoon.

Medium yellow color with a slight orange hue. Think head and citrusy aroma. Nice bubbly body, with flavors of lemon, cirtus, bananas and honey. Pleasant tart finish.

[bottle from peckhams] pours a cloudy yellow/orange colour with a large fluffy head which lasts most of the way through the beer. the nose is fruity and musty with some banana, and a little citrus sharpness. body is light and spritzy with a good refreshing finish, an excellent hefeweizen.
