Nice big head. But I think that some of that carbonation turned me a bit off on the palate. Good taste of wheat, citrus, and bannana.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
500mL bottle. A hazy straw pour with a thin, fizzy off-white head. Lots of bananas, clove and yeast in the aroma. Carbonation is VERY high, and unfortunately detracts from the taste quite a bit. Still, quite yeasty and tangy. Lemony and wheaty with just a touch of pepper in the finish. Thin-bodied. Very crisp and refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden orange with lots of big bubbles producing a medium sized head that receded gradually to a thin film. A yeast burst was the first impression of the aroma, with the typical banana & cloves evident, but not prominent. On tasting was where it all fell apart. The flavour was a bit bland, and the mouthfeel was quite rubbery and metallic, with too much carbonation. After looking forward to this being a fan of the hefe, I was a bit disappointed unfortunately.

Very good Hefewizen. In my opinion, it’s better than the Franzikaner version, but is not quite so widely available.

Bottle, at home.
Light amber with large white head, almost lasting, fine lacings. Aroma moderate malty, light hoppy and yeasty (citrus, fruit, refreshing). Flavor light sweet, moderate acidic. Light to medium body, watery, lively carbonated.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2008 Typical hefe aroma of banana, bubble gum, and cloves. Taste is clean, bubbly, and slightly fruity. Mouthfeel is light and carbonation is high. The wheat comes through very clean in the finish, slightly less fruity tasting than Paulaner. Still the standard.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice golden color, slightly hazy. Full yeasty aroma, like a great hefeweizen, with a nice wheat beer taste. Very drinkable, and a great summer beer.
Overall, about average (since I am very particular when it comes to wheat beers).

A good example of hefe weissbier. The best I’ve found in my home town so far.
