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.

- I poured this from a 500 ml bottle into a pint glass. So, shoot me. I find that at 45 I need to update my beer glass collection. I poured slowly and then dumped the last little bit of the bottle in. I held it up to a light in time to see the yeast come down like an octopus through a very clear straw colored beer. Then things got cloudy. It had about a 1/2 inch head that died to soon. It smelled of clove and banana and had the same taste. I am disappointed. I’ve had this on tap before and there was a definite difference. I’ll have to go back to the pub and try another.

Bottled. Hazy dark yellow pour and an acceptably fluffy off-white head. Massive aroma of wheat, yeast, and citrus. Banana and bubblegum/cloves aromas are muted. Smooth! Tongue makes up for the banana the nose was missing. Citrus is louder in the mouth, as well. Spicy with a lasting, complex aftertaste. Fresh, thirst-quenching, and unlike its neighbor, Paulaner, clean. Have to agree, this is overrated, but that doesn’t take away from the enjoyment - should be one of the top Weizen in the world, a toss-up with Maisel’s for my favorite.

Have tried it alone and with the recommended pairing of Weißwurst - good either way.

darkko (99) - Kingsport, Tennessee, USA - MAR 13, 2006
Pours a beautiful cloudy, honey color, with a nice lasting head. Taste is smooth and refreshing with very little bitter finish. Nice malty flavor with citrus accents but nothing too overpowering. A great brew.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAR 9, 2006
Cloudy amber body with big white head. Aroma is banana, clove and apricots. The flavor is fruity, bananas and some citrus, light touch of spice, with a dry, slightly bitter finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy.

Capa (2572) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Poures a cloudy golden color with a large pillowy head that lasts through the beer. Has an aroma of bananas and yeast. Flavor is citrus and bananas along with yeast and slight cloves. Has a crisp, thin mouth to it and finiches mildly bitter. A very nice hefeweizen.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Bottle. Aroma is enveloping and soft, with lots of banana and vanilla. Flavors of lemon, banana, wheat, and yeast. Light, sweet, balanced, and a touch of dryness - an outstanding weizen.

FrankJohansen (3616) - Sabro, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2006
Light hefeweizen. Hazy yellow colour with a medium mostly lasting head. Weak taste of wheat and citrus. not the best hefeweizen around.

ghorsche (48) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAR 1, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2006 50cl bottle. Poured murky yellow-tan (not a terribly appetizing color) into a footed pilsner glass with a huge foamy white head. Aroma is primarily yeast and DMS, with some banana apparent only immediately after the pour. Flavor is yeasty and grainy with definite DMS, though the latter is quite well-controlled. Definite clove note in some sips though not in others. Lightly bitter. Longish finish with bubblegum, then banana, then some sweetness coming through in layers. A little thin on the palate, but crisp, lively, and refreshing. Highly drinkable. Definitely the best of the three bottled hefeweizens I have tried recently (Franziskaner and Paulaner are the others) and the only one I would consider buying again.
