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.

Overall this is a well balanced and decent example of the style. This version has the clove spice much more subtle than the Franziskaner that I found undrinkable. Still not a fan of the style because of the cloves, but at least with this one I could finish the glass.

Drinking these much heralded wheat beers in February might be the problem, but I ended up not thinking either this or Aventinus was the cat's meow. This one is the better of the two, far less anoying esterily, with more complex and less aggressive counterpoints (lemonsmoke, clean malts, cloves).

I love this wheat beer. What can I say, cloudy yellow colour with hints of white, huge sudsy head with good retention. Spicey banana aroma and flavour. Smooth full body.

Nice hazy color with the typical huge head of foam. Very well balanced although lacking bite. More banana than clove I thought and not as spicy/citrusy as others I've tried. But still a classic and very smooth and well done.

Thick creamy head greets you as you pour it into the glass, and it hangs around for a while. I found the flavor to be a tad tarty but not in an IPA way-almost as if the hops were aged just a bit too long. At least that's how my bottle tasted. I think I prefer my hefe's out of a tap rather than a bottle. Not to my liking but not a bad beer. Doesn't mean the rest of the reviews are wrong-Just not for me.

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2003
An excellent wheat beer. Pours with a substantial frothy head, with the beer being cloudy pale yellow golden color. Aroma is all wheat, spice, and citrus. I can inhale wheats aroma for several minutes before drinking, they have such a refreshing smell. The taste has the typical banana yeast taste. Added plus is this is very reasonably priced for and import.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2003
This must be one of the best bottled hefes ever. Banana nose and flavor, but not as sweet as some, very nicely done. Lower pepper, clove than others as well; exceptionally well balanced. Large poofy head, chill haze plus slightly unfiltered appearance makes it all very nice. Would love a side-by-side with Two Bros Ebel and Denison's Weizen (oh man on that last one...sniff)

Verne (261) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2003
Excellent. What a good Hefeweizen is supposed to taste like. Smooth, rich and spicy not gritty and hoppy like some American versions of this beer. Anyone putting a lemon in this beer should be shot

666seth (222) - California, USA - JAN 8, 2003
Another very good example of an excellent Hefeweizen. Golden in color, cloudy. Beautiful foamy head, slightly citrusy in aroma. Thats a good thirst quencher for a hot summer day in the Munich Biergarten!

Pale amber colour with a beautiful head. The aroma is fresh, citrusy, grapefruit and banana. Lot of carbonation and slightly spicy. Grapefruity finish.
