3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (12oz). Classic - label says "contains malt liquor" - yee haw! Pours very hazy yellow with a huge lasting off-white head. Aroma of candy malt, tons of yeast, banana, lemon and more than a little slightly sour cream, with pungent spices drawing it all together - really interesting. Taste of spices, banana, yeast, sugary malt, lemon juice and dry wood, almost like bubblegum in the finish, really well done - mouthfeel is fairly thick, a little acidic, almost sticky, with decent carbonation and a shifting, dancing yeastiness on the tongue - I see why this is so highly rated, complex, refreshing, not overly demanding but a great quaffer.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2006 Bottle. Poured yellow-gold with a white head. Strong wheat, banana, and clove smell. Taste is the same as the smell however personally I can taste clove more than anything. Tastes like a clove cigarette to me. Not my favorite style of beer but better than other hefeweizens I have tried in the past.

Large yeasty taste with strong hint of citrus. Aroma was fairly strong. Carbonation was a little more than I expected. Still a great beer...would much prefer the Ayinger Hefe beer though

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gold and hazy in colour with strong carbonation. Typical hefeweizen aromas of vanilla, clove, banana, and a bit of citrus. Nice tangy wheat flavor, with more vanilla and banana in the mouth. A bit of spicy hops on the finish too. Very nice full mouthfeel that still refreshes. Definitely more on the vanilla/clove end of the spectrum, with the fruity notes being held in check. Classy.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 41F Weizen Glass. Big and citrusy with good notes of warm yeast, Nice and fruity but slighty spicy aroma. The appearance is cloudy dark gold, with a white and fluffy head that lasts for some time. Wonderful notes of orange citrus, and dry slightly bready notes similar to eating dry bisquits. Sweet, sour and almost no bitterness but a hint of copper, and maybe some celery. Very nice and refreshing. Nice sharp carbonation, with good moderate mouthfeel. Yet finishes so clean, a definite thirst quencher. A good be and maybe I like it better than Franziskaner hefe, It’s definately good, and easily drinkable. Es ist gut bier.
