4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2011 500 ml bottle in Germany from Wasanas. When this is poured I dont see a beer but a blond women in a golden dress. Probably one of the best German Hefe-Weizen there is. Nice banana aroma. Like most good hefe-weizens they are one of the few beers that is better in the bottle than from the tap. 04/11/11 I think that there has been a change in this been over the years although still a great beer it has slipped somewhat.

Slightly cloudy with small head. Good floral accents with a tasty caramel undertones resulting in a very drinkable beer

Cloudy, light straw with frothy head when poured from bottle into the glass. Banana, bubble gum and baking bread aromas. A touch of sweetness initially which leads into a yeasty and only gently bitter mid and back palate. Only lightly carbonated. All of this leads to an incredibly refreshing beer.

Was shocked to realize that I had never rated this classic. Several years ago, I stated that the stringent German beer laws resulted in uniformly boring beers. I cringe thinking about this idiotic statementt. This beer pours a hazy yellow with a massive head. Smells of spice. The vibrancy of the mouthfeel might trick a drinker into thinking this beer was spiced. Flavors of bananas and citrus. A great beer. A perfect go to when you feel like grabbing the devil you know.

Bottle at home. Pours a cloudy gold with lively white head. Aroma is banana, yeasty, bready goodness. Taste is highly carbed, somewhat spicy, slightly sweet. Full, creamy mouthfeel. An always delicious classic.

500ml bottle. Quite hollow in flavor. Expected more than just herbal/spice notes.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500 ml bottle. Golden, a little foggy, with a minimal head. Aroma with banana, close to pinapple. No yeast taste. Somewhat sweet. Body rather thin. Refreshing and almost enjoyable, since I normally don’t like Weissbier.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A - Bright white 3 finger head that retains very well. Thick splotches of lacing.
S - Savory banana, clove, wheat.
T - Follows the nose except the spice is muted. Banana with plenty of dry peppery wheat. Bubblegum and melon come in to play. Finishes with a creamy spice flavor.
M - Full body. Prickly carbonation.
Very solid for the style. One of the best for sure.

Hefe weissen when it is at its best.
Multitude of flavours. Fruits, bananas and vitamins . Refreshing even in this wintery swedish spring.
