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.

Emeister84 (862) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Cloves, bananas, bubblegum, and flowers on the nose. A hazy orange-amber hue with a fluffy, sudsy white head of great retention. Off-dry with a light bitterness. Medium-full bodied, full and flzzy carbonation, and a short finish with some fruity and floral notes lingering afterwards. Outstandingly refreshing.

jebert (494) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Taste is mild, full of wheat, some light fruitiness (apricot?) slightly yeasty, not bitter with only muted hops. Very pleasant and tasty. Pairs well with white cheese, salmon or nuts.

BadAprilia1000 (239) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Pours a hazy yellow gold with a thick foamy white head. Aroma is banana, spice, wheat, grain, hay, sweet. Taste is wheat and hay, banana, spice, butter, yeast. Such a fantastically drinkable beer, extremely light yet flavorful, perfect wheat beer for the summer.

This is hands down my favorite beer of all time! The aroma and taste tops off the charts. Whenever this beer is available at bars, I always ask for one. A+ 5 star. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holmen2 (652) - NORWAY - JUL 12, 2014
Slightly hazy yellow. Foamy anf persistent white head. Classic, but moderate, weissbier aroma, with bananas and tropical fruits. Similar taste. High drinkability, and refreshing for being a weissbier.

Armadill0 (255) - FINLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Tap. Cloudy, yellow with a small white head. Aroma has banana, yeast and grain. Tate has banana, butter and some hay. A really light wheat beer with a strong banana overtone. Mouthfeel is smooth with a nice aftertaste. An exemplary wheat beer.

NikkTwist (1519) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle at Fado. Not normally my style - but beats all the other Hefeweiss beers I have had. Hazy blonde gold pour with some delicate white foam. Big wheat - only very light toasted notes, but still reads as fuller than one would expect. Green banana. Orange pips. Marshmallows. Has the full flavor of plumped up wheat berries. Tastes like the real thing. Nicely balanced and refreshing.

JorgeLee (1138) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle, can’t remember where from. Quite a light yellowish colour, thick white head. This is a well balanced quaffable wheat beer. A little sweet, fruity, appe, banana, clove spice, modest bitter finish. All sounds like any other weizen which is I guess true and this doesn’t challenge the tastebuds with extremity. However, it is perfectly balanced and is I think just nice. I normally prefer my weizens a bit more malty as the lighter ones can feel overly thin and not refreshing, but this does the job extremely well.

Nephilium (1312) - Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2014
I can’t believe I haven’t rated this one yet... starts with the traditional aroma of wheat, with banana and clove. Pours a hazy light straw with a huge white head. Light wheat, paired with more banana notes. Light bodied, nice and crisp. A great beer to have on a hot summer day.

Hanoi (354) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2014
Nose is pleasingly yeasty with slight clove and coriander. Taste is yeast, bread, slight banana, a little peach in the finish. The finish is short, it’s a wll balanced drink.
