4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2010 Bottle: The aroma has lots of banana, bubblegum, citrus, and light clove. It pours a cloudy golden orange with a large white head with good retention and lots of lacing. The flavor starts with moderate banana and light bubblegum. The finish has light-moderate citrus and wheat tanginess with light clove. Light-medium bodied with moderate-lively carbonation that still manages to come across with a soft mouthfeel. This is my "go to" beer and is virtually always in my fridge.

Classic cloudy yellowish colour. Fine nose and flavour with plenty of bananas and oranges. The wheat and yeast makes the beer very refreshing. All in all a great hefeweizen.

This is a good example of what a wheat beer should be. Nice amber color, with wheaty-citrus smells and flavor, not overly thick.

Hazy golden amber colour with a mountain of head dissolving to a thin,lingering creamy slab atop the brew. Aroma is wheat, malt, bananas and citrus. Flavour is malty with spicy hops. Very smooth mouthfeel with a touch of bite at the end.

Remarkable wheat beer. Crisp, refreshing and good. Yeasty, citrus tang with bread like flavors. Some banana, spice finishes up this tasty wheat. One of the best hefe’s I have had.

Wonderful head and pleasant aftertaste. Has the citrus effect that a good wheat beer should have, maybe the best wheat beer I have sampled, although the Hacker is close!

Good sweet and citrus aroma. Taste is very citrusy, mainly orange and a little lime. Body is medium. Some hops evident in the finish. A little too carbonated for me, but other than that a good beer.

Cloudy golden color, with the most beautiful frothy hite head on top! Thats the way a hefeweizen should look! The aroma has banana, spices, yeast, some smoke and some biscuits. Spicy flavor, yeast, biscuit, banana and some dryness in the end and notes of hops. Its very full-bodied. Weihenstephaner... mmmmmm...

Good beer for this style, but I prefer Hacker-Pschorr or Paulaner instead. This beer definately has the citrus and yeasty-wheat thing down, but lacks in depth compared to other of this style.
