A light beer with a good wheat flavor. I wish this was a little less light affected. I bet this was a great beer when it was fresh. It has a matly finish with a lite hop taste. Good Beer.

Mmm! I enjoyed this at a typical pub/restaurant in east Berlin.
Smells of synthetic banana, yeast and wheat.
Tastes rich and seet, refreshingly mild in a way somewhere between hoppy, citric and spicy.
Cooling and enjoyable.
It has a childish and creamy flavour.

Tap, cloudy yellow, refreshing nose and mouthfeel, nicely spiced. Mouth of banana clove, wheat, and another flavor I couldn’t pick out. Great finish, awesome hefe.

Half liter bottle. Hazy yellow with a large, persisitant white head. Nose of wheat, hops, and yeast. Flavor of spice and yeast with a dry, mildly hoppy finish. Refreshing.

Hazy pale gold with a big pillowy head. Initially esters dominate the aroma, but after a short time sweet spice, vanilla, yeast, and bubblegum take over. Great flavours of clove, banana, wheat and a little citrus oil. I’m not a heffe fan, but I loved this-- it actually got even better toward the finish. Ordinarily I find that there is a funny taste that accompanies many heffes that gets up into my nose and becomes annoying after one pint (I’ve always thought that maybe this was related to histamines associated with the yeast and wheat interplay, but I can’t be sure), but I didn’t get that sense at all with this beer-- 100% fantastic!

Medium lasting head, cloudy. Fruity aroma, delicious taste - creamy,fruity (but not too much), high carbonation makes it good in this case. Drinks very well, excellent

This beer sampled at Brew Ha Ha 2005: Pours a cloudy golden color with a good head that left pretty quick. Aroma was slightly fruity with a wheat background. Good taste with citrus and wheat.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is your cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is wheaty and vanilla. Flavor is nice. Lots of clove and yeast combine to make a nice banana flavor. Very silky and smooth as it goes down. I think the Franzikaner is better but this brew is very tasty. The Germans know how to make the best hefes!

On tap at Tyler’s in Durham, NC. Beautiful cloudy yellow color with a thick white head. Aroma is spicey and slightly fruity. Wonderful banana flavor with some hops and a lot of spices. Nice citrusy finish with a lingering yeast taste. Great beer.

Bottled: Pours and looks just like a good little hefe should - cloudy pale gold with a big white head.Aroma wheaty with the expected clove and citrus notes. Flavour is the expected tart wheat with under tones of banana and citrus. Smooth mouthfeel. Pretty good all round just missing some verve.
