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.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2004 Sept, 2002:Tangy and refreshing with sparkles of tangerine, pineapple, melon, apple and a hint of banana, all balanced by a rubbery yeast that quickly erases one fruit to replace it with another. All this from the oldest brewery in the world (dates from 1040) with its attached brewing university! Easy available here in the UK from most supermarkets. [3.3]
Dec, 2004: Wheat beer. Agreeably pleasant while cold. More character, but less attractive when warming up. [2.9]

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2008 The oldest brewery in the world. That’s also gotta be worth something. Check it out. A great wheat beer.

Cloudy pale golden in color. Huge head that dissipates to about a finger width at half glass. Citrusy with banana notes and of course cloves. Not too sweet compared with some other hefes. It does have just a touch of bitterness in the finish. I really like German wheats, so this is a mid-pack hefe IMO.

madsberg (10459) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2006 Bottled and Draught. Golden coloured. Unclear. Huge off white head. Aroma of yeast, banana some spices and citrus. Dense and aromatic. Flavour is equally delicious. Loads of banana and fruits, some spices and light yeast. Full bodied. Quite dry and acidic. Balanced. Ends on a dry fruity and citric note. Has light smoky notes. Hard to get a better german hefe in my book.

Andrew196 (1091) - Katy, Texas, USA - SEP 8, 2002
This is very typical for the style...cloudy yellow, clove, banana peel from nose to finish. I like my hefes to be a little more crisp than this....full bodied for a wheat.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2011 I can be short about this: the best Hefeweizen i know. And also available everywhere! And now another sentence to meet the minimum amount of characters...

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 28, 2002
Truly wondrous-looking brew, with a delicious smoky-amber body topped by the longest-lasting weissbier head I’ve seen. Aroma very sweet, orangey-lemony, not as strong as it could be but nice. Flavor super-duper malty, very sweet, very smooth. Wheaty, banana-apricot with some caramel, truly decicious with a great finish; doesn’t make as much impact as Paulaner, but very impressive and deserving of its accolades.

pilsnerrogge (2536) - Finspång, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2002
Impressive head, doesn’t last long though. Orange/brown, cloudy. Spicy yeasty banana aroma. Sweet-ish wheaty flavour, there’s also some alcohol-bitterness in the back of the mouth. A good example of the style.

eczematic (1320) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2004 yawn banana cloves etc. nicely malty, but simple and sweet in the finish. very smooth, drinkable but a bit predictable - bit more zing would be good. i think i’m reallly really getting bored with weizens actually.
