A very good Hefe. Hazy, cloudy yellow color with a half inch white head. Banana springs from teh aroma, slong with some wheat. Great smooth taste with some fruit. A tiny bitter finish that leaves you wanting more. Very good Hefe.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong nutty wheat aroma with some yeast and earth hints. Large initial head mostly deminishes, but there is good lacing with what remains. Color is a cloudy amber. Lightly bitter flavor and can definitely pick out the wheat. Nice medium creamy palate.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2004 Cloudy orange. White, lacy head. Spicey, yeasty aroma. Very well-rounded Weizen, with the usual suspects in full effect: banana, yeast, citrus, sourness. Very refreshing and tasty. Along the lines of Franziskaner Hefeweizen. Very good. Re-rate: As I did with Franziskaner, I had to higher the standards by which I measure weizens, and I really couldn´t rate a beer lower than its average, when I absolutely love it.

This was one of those beers that I had heard a lot about, and one of which I have been using this yeast forever in my own wheat beers. The Weizen was a nice fruity crisp beer, with a nice balance of the Banana/Clove flavor against a refreshingly wholesome yeastiness. Definitely worth searching out and procuring while I was in Germany, and best of all, I can now get it at my local bottle shop.
