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.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2014 18 Nov 2004 - Banana and clove aroma. Appearance is same as Kristall except cloudy. Nice fruit complexity and spiritous floral hop aroma. Thick mouthfeel and a lingering fruit finish.

Beer #1 in German Bier Night. Cloudy yellow/gold color with a bubbly head that settles into a very thin sheen. Banana dominates the aroma with some yeastiness. Taste is more yeasty banana but not as much than whats in the nose. Medium body with a light carbonation in the mouthfeel. Although good, I doubt this stuff handles the journey very well. I guess Iím off to Germany to try a fresher version.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2009 Bottled. A cloudy orange coloured beer which pours with a tiny head. The aroma has bananas, a little lemon and maybe some cream. The taste has more of the same and is typically hefe although maybe the mouthfeel is a little fuller. I really struggle to say much about this style. Most hefes Iíve had are pleasantly drinkable but unexciting.Score 3.1
Subsequent rating scored 3.2. Score unchanged

Excellent beer that suffers from $2.50 pint night pour. Very little head in a "regular" pint glass. A little work with a straw after a few sips brings the head to life and awakens the hidden aromas developed in this beer. Still not a great presentation for this wheat monster that defines the style for me. Slightly cloudy with dark straw/ amber color. Truly a great summertime beer. But, when itís 65 degrees in February.. it just feels like summer. Malt/fruit flavor complimented by spice/citrus. One of a very few non-killer-hoppy beers that I could drink every day and that I actually keep in the beer frig. Choice is good.

Pours cloudy yellow with small white head that quickly diminishes. Nose is Banana, allspice, and faint soap. Banana and wheat flavors combat each other as well as some spicy notes. Finishes with clean banana flavor. Very good.

I hadnít really been a fan of wheat beers until the number of quality imports increased. They are still not in my top styles but for a hot Sydney summer day they work very well. Especially in the generous weizen style of glassware that encourages a billowy head over the plae cloudy beer. Great diacetyl nose character with banana and some light cloviness. Very enjoyable mouthfeel that is smooth rather than harsh. A bit of effervescence there as there is a bit of a belch factor. Oh well, beer was made to repeat like this, I mean beer was made to repeat like this.

The beer pours cloudy with a nice thick head. I have to admit I didnít like it at first. It had an aftertaste I couldnít put my finger on. After reading a few reviews, it was apparent that that is banana, and somehow that made me like it just a bit more.. (I guess it makes me feel better to go mmmm... banana, instead of hmmmm... what the hell is that?)

Juelze (1141) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 26, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2007 Pours a cloudy yellow color with huge frothy white head that grows and grows. Aroma is of banana, clove, and the usual hefe chracter. Taste is just like the aroma with a great balance of banana, clove and yeast. Itís creamingly smooth and probably one of the best hefeís out there.

Tons of yeasty banana going on with this one. Not overwhelming though. Pleasant and thirst quenching. Very soft and just a very nice example of the style overall.
