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.

On draught at Bier Stube, East Davenport, IA. Served in a proper weizen glass. An absoultely fanstastic hefeweizen. Super cloudy yellow with a huge, frothy, and lasting head. Aroma is the standard hefe bananas and cloves, but the aroma is so much more pronounced, thick and musty. Rich, earthy yeast profile with a nice wheat tang and good carbonation balance. Delicious down to the last drop. Fantastic.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2006 Bottle - Tried this in the states and wasn’t overly impressed. Bought a fresh bottle here in Germany. Nice banana malt aroma with slight clove hint. Cloudy amber head with good head. Very nice balanced flavor - banana/peach flavor nice but not overwhelming - slight hint of malt - absolutely no bitterness. Okay - this is possibly the best Hefeweizen there is. Unfortunately, this beer does not age well so getting a fresh bottle is hit or miss - just tried some stateside and it was too old and I probably wouldn’t have given it much over a 3.0.

I can see why this brewery has been around since the 11th century! The best wheat beer I have ever had. Appearance yellow and cloudy, with some white foamy head. Nice spicy aroma. The flavor is dominated by banana, cloves, and some other spice I can’t put my finger on. Never quite tasted a wheat like this one, as it has little to do with the typical citrus flavored ones.

Bottled. Opaquely cloudy, looks like unfiltered apple cider, offwhite head, poor lacing. Malty, banana, subdued clove, earthy; mild, but complex and pleasant aroma. Medium bodied, foamy, bone dry finish. Amazingly crisp, fresh, citrus, light clove, yeast like dough with a sour, banana clove finish. Well balanced and totally refreshing German style hefe...had a number wrong. -_-

Nearly one of my overall favorites and certainly the best of it’s style. Cloudy golden color and lace is as you would expect and outstanding aroma/flavor of citrus and yeast is what all German Hefeweizen should aspire to.

Originally had this off tap in Italy. The bartender took 15 minutes to pour, I was pretty angry by the time it finally came. Took me to the fourth beer to really get a good pour myself. Good hefe-weizen. Pale orange appearance with an enormous white head that shrunk kinda quickly. Decent yeasty, citrus aroma. Flavor is very good. Zesty, lemony. Pretty good mouthfeel, with some good fruits. Also very good served a little above room temp.

Nice cloudy golden color, thick, creamy white head. Good aroma of bananas and spices, maybe herbs too. Nice flavor of bananas, wheat and spices. Medium body. Very good, smooth and complex at the same time.

Bright white medium dense head, with stong lace and retention. Light gold in color. Aroma is yeast profile/ phenolic, but smoother and subdued when compared to Belgian and American efforts, this leads to a fine balance tha in my opinion lets you drink another one ore two for thirst.. The yeast profile does not over power and drive you away. Mouthfeel= initial is silky on roof of mouth followed by heavy carbonation finish. Sever in proper glass, and temps between 50 and 40 F results in a fine refreshing beer.. any warmer then the banana ester I am sure would be prevelant. Cheers
