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.

Big, rocky, white head. Cloudy gold appearance. Clovelike aroma. The taste has hints of banana and a tangy clove. When tasted side by side with four other wheat beeers, this was the best. No lemon needed.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2013 Probably my favorite hefeweizen. I have had this numerous times on draft and bottled and my rating for both is essentially the same. +++ Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle. Pretty label. The brew pours a slightly orange golden color. Very hazy. Has a large foaming head that is slow to diminish. There is a moderate sweet fruity aroma. Sweet front taste with a sour tangyness that lingers. A world classic in my book.

CEZ (399) - Milano, ITALY - FEB 20, 2004
Sadly average. Nice color, but short-lived head. Nice aroma (yeast, citrus, banana). Slightly sweet malty and wheaty taste; dry yeasty finish. It feels like all the right flavours are there, but they are a bit too light and bland, especially when compared to my favorite hefeweizen, like Ayinger or Franziskaner.

Good stuff. Pours a nice hazy yellow with a big white head. Great yeast flavors aith sweet lemon and banana thrown in there. Wheat predominant on the finish. One of the best hefes

Bottled - drinked from Weizen class
Huge foamy head. Classic hazy weizen colour with orange shades. Florish sweet aroma with some yeast! Soft palate. Banana flavor. Sweety taste with carbonation holds till the end.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JAN 31, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2006 Pours a deep cloudy yellow/orange with a fluffy white head. Nice wheat aroma and flavor. Very nice. Rerate Mar 2006: this may set the standard for a German Hefe. nicely flavored with yeast. Great aroma of banana and clove. A very good beer.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 28, 2004
Has a hazy orangish color with a thick white head and quite a bit of carbonation. Smell is a combonation of wheat/yeast/banana/clove. Taste is a bit light of banana/clove and has a crisp, almost a little to fizzy, finish. Overall a pretty good wheat, but a little to light to be great.

kujo9 (1093) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - JAN 28, 2004
Hazy deep gold w/a lasting frothy white head. Typical clove and banana esters w/a wheat malt lagging behind as it warms. Also lightly papery. Wheat malt and cloves predominate flavor, but also has light banana esters and lightly oxidized(papery). Otherwise not much else going on. Well balanced with a dry finish. Highly effervescent, lighter body, and a light acidic bite. Unfortunately, this bottles a little old and past it's prime. I've had bottles that were more fresh and will rate this accordingly. Normally a pretty thirst quenching beer and quite enjoyable under most circumstances.
