"good beer, not my favorite hefe. Pour a cloudy yellow with a massive head. Aroma was of cloves and way to much banana. The flavor was over run by banana. Would put franz and paulaner are better though. "

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The ’world’s oldest brewery’ comment on the label sold me on this beer. I figured they’ve had the longest to make a good product so why not try it.... and It didn’t disappoint.
Pours a golden yellow with plentiful white head that lasts. Aroma of wheat with a strong mild lemon scent. Flavor is full wheat with some lemon and there is a bubblegum presence that appears after the immediate after-taste.

On tap at Old Munich Biergarten in Bradenton, Fl:
Pours a cloudy golden color with a big white frothy head. Aroma is yeasty with hints of wheat and banana. Flavor is yeasty and light on the hops with a smooth sweet finish. I would definitely try this again.

Cloudy, fine carbonation and a big white head that falls after a few minutes to a more manageable size. Distinct and expected tangy wheat aroma. Typical wheat beer flavours with the wheat tangclearly there, with just enough hop to prevent sweetness.... personally I prefer my wheats a bit hoppier than this

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy orange with a thick white frothy head. Typical, but not aggressive, aroma of banana esters and wheat malt. The banana clove and sweetness typical of this style was very tame in this example. Texture was a bit too fizzy. Finish has some faint bitterness, and is chalky and earthy. Maybe this was not a fresh sample, but I found this to be a rather generic Hefeweizen.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2006 Smells very nice and it has got a aroma of a mixture of banana, yeast and citrus. It appears beautiful in chilled condition and the palate is just fantasticly smooth. Normally weissbier isn’t my favourites, but this one is fantasticly nice!

Pours a light yellow with nice lacing. Aroma of blunt lemon and wheat. Slight bubblegum hints in the background. Flavor is rounded banana and a full wheat flavor. A hint of lemon in the finish. A nice, light hefe. Repeat? Heck yeah.

Bottle. Poured out a cloudy light orange-brown color with a huge foamy ivory head that took quite a while to disipate, a great looking beer. The aroma was full of yeast, banana and wheat. The flavor contained banana, citrus and yeast on the outset with a smidge of bitter hops on the finish. Very smooth palate, and quite delicious overall, quite possibly the best Hefeweizen I’ve had.
