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.

Lightly cloudy golden color with a big white head that settles quickly but sticks around. Mild nose of yeast, banana, citrus, and spice. Palate is refreshing like a Hefe should have. Flavors of spice is most noticable, with mild banana and citrus flavors. A refreshing summer beer.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2007 Excellent weissbier, but it is hard to make these as memorable as a good stout. At any rate, this is refreshing, full-bodied, citrussy thirst-quencher.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Buff colored and cloudy with a fat fluffy white head. Sharp and spicy in aroma with clove and banana, some wet blanket. Light bodied with a rock candy finish. Flavor is of mild banana followed by a bit of a clove bite. A good Hefe but somewhat over rated. But hey, I’ve never had it in Germany.

highlandlad (1433) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2005
Wonderfully fragrant hefeweizen. Just a pity that the flavour doesn’t quite match the promise. Intense gold colour with a lasting head. Terrific aroma, big and spicy, with unexpected fruit cake characters. Very inviting. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Bananas are the dominant flavour. A little tart on the tongue with some spice but just a little lacking in complexity. (Bottle)

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2005 Extremely refreshing wheat, with a strong banana and clove aroma and rich wheaty mouthfeel that is just so creamy. Lemon, grapefruit, orange notes coexist with cut grass sourness. Very nicely done by these newcomers...

Poured a amber color very cloudy with a beautiful healthy head. Aroma is mostly cloves with some banannas. Very similar to the Hefewiessbier dunkel that I just finished. Maybe a little lighter and a little more grass/wheat taste to this one. Light in body and carbonated well to make it very refreshing. Starts out sweet with a taste of bananna then to clove taste and finishes with just a little bitter sourness lemon maybe. I think from the wheat. Tasty beer and very nice.

A good hefeweizen even looks refreshing, and this one was certainly that. Pouring a hazy dark yellow with a fluffy white head, this has a banana dominated aroma supported by cloves, some grassiness, and a drop of lemon juice. Nicely carbonated and light in the mouth, this has a yeasty banana flavor along with some sweet maltiness and a touch of wheat tartness. Clean refreshing finish. After all this time, these guys are still doing things right.
