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.

KajII (781) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Bottle. Poured a murky yellow with a large rocky white head that was fully lasting and had excellent lacing. The aroma was loaded with a doughy yeast , bread malts, light citrus hops with notes of banana and cloves. It tasted mildly bitter-sweet to start and developed into a light, sweet yeasty flavor with notes of citrus, banana and some spices with the flavor lasting for quite a while, thus enhancing the experience. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a soft carbonation.. Overall an outstanding Hefe-weizen.

pours an average frothy white head that mostly lasts. Body is hazy, sparkling yellow orange. Aroma contains light malts (light bread, hay), light hops (orange, lime), light yeasts (dough, horse blanket) and banana, grape, apple, pineapple, vanilla, cola and spices. flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and light sweet and finish is light acidic, light sweet and light bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. this is one of the best Hefeweizens. fruity, fresh, comlex and subtle. Just lovely.

antnego (5) - Moreno Valley, California, USA - AUG 13, 2014 does not count
Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with thick head and moderate lacing; smell is of umami, bananas, cloves, fruity pebbles; taste is alternatively umami, like soy sauce and fruity, with bananas and cloves coming through. There is a bready, wheaty backbone that ties the flavors together. Very smooth and low in bitterness, this beer is definitely on the sweet side. Mouthfeel is thick and chewy. Overall, the archetypal hefeweizen; this is the standard all other wheat beers are to be judged by.

HopsandBolts (62) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
Appearance: Pours a pale yellow with just over a finger of white head which fades gradually. Aroma: Banana, yeast, bit of malt and hint of hops. Flavours: Banana, hops, yeast, baking flower, cloves and a hint of citrus. Mouthfeel: This beer has an incredibly smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Overall: A nice Hefeweizen although I didn’t go quite as crazy for it as everyone else. The banana and yeast notes are the most pronounced components with the aroma and flavour and I really liked this aspect.

Straling (345) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2014
Pours a murky yellow/golden colour with great carbonation and head. Aroma is fresh citrus fruits with bitter and sour notes. Strong citrus flavour, beautifully balanced bitter, sour and sweet notes. Goes down great.

Oh, gracious this is tasty. Banana and yeast aroma, perfect sour sweetness... The platonic ideal of a Weiss beer. Cloudy amber pour and a light head. Softly carbonated and a malt-y, yeastiness that makes me sigh.

A perfect example of a hefe weissbier. Wonderful aroma, outstanding head, cloudy. Just a touch of tartness and otherwise sweet and crisp. Perfect on a hot day. One of the best.
