Medium gold color, slightly cloudy, medium head. A light bodied wheat beer. Light malts and hops. Good flavor, well balanced. Slight banana and clove taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is mostly neutral. Excellent beer.

Fairly weak and lacking in taste, this canít even begin to hold a candle to Oberon (Bellís). Maybe a lemon in this would not be a bad thing, at least it would give it some flavor.

I have never had the bottled version so I can only speak on the tap version. Beautiful wheat with nice lemony, grassy tones that help make this an extremely refreshing wheat beer.

Nice yellow unfiltered appearance, light sort of bland wheat flavor, somewhat hoppy.

hazy apple cider kind of color. The head dissapeared into a small bubbly layer. Sweet fruity scent with a bit of spicyness to it. The taste has a gentle banana, perhaps, flavor to it that fades to more spicyness and a grainy, wheat taste. I remember when I used to love this stuff. Then, I had a paulner hef on tap. I just couldnít look at american hefís the same way. I guess I have to judge american hefís against their own kind, but damn, german wheat beers rock.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2005 Rerate Decent still, just had too many other Wheats to be this overly impressed by this one. Flavor not all that great with just subtle bubble gum sweetness. Still looks nice and cloudy and has a sweet subtle citrusy aroma Original 3.6 Great cloudy appearance and the bartender didnít ruin it by throwing an orange in there. Fresh citrusy aroma. Refreshing after a long drive.

This one has a wonderful appearance. I had this on draft and have yet to sample the bottle. There is a distinct lack of aroma for a wheat. Flavor is also kind of weak, with a slight yeasty note. It did grow a bit on me, but still weak for a hefe. I actually had to ask for a lemon slice to wake this one up. Blasphemous! Lemons do not belong in beer! I guess I am spoiled by the German wheats.
