Had this at the corkscrew tasting in Urbana Illinois. For a Hefeweizen this was pretty good but I just cant get into it. Mostly because I just dont ding the Hefe’s. Quite a bit of banana. so thats pretty good I guess Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2005
A hazy pale yellow body with lazy carbonation and a tall head that - - that disappears more quickly than I’ve seen on a hefeweizen before! It has a delicate aroma, grassy fresh with a mild lemon twist. The banana shows up for the taste - and it’s an old banana at that. Cloves make a brief hello. Very clean finish with perhaps a drop of lemon to cleanse the tongue. Acceptable. mephisto (1293) - TAIWAN - MAR 26, 2005
it has a very large head; the color is orange and hazy. the body is medium light, not too fruity. a decent weizen. krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2004
cloudy yellow pour-- like you’d collected a soft, golden ball of peach fuzz and packed it in a glass. head as white as a our national rotunda, and it laced in great dreamy sheets that comforted the weary eye. aroma is a woodshop of dank lumber, sawdust and fresh varnish. blogs of yeast slumped like sunken vessels on the bottom of the bottle, and sent up a scent of clove cigarettes, mildewed documents, with green bananas and brown apples. begins as a moderately sweet and thin-bodied drink, with bright carbonation, but dries out quickly with a pronounced vinegary component amid a very woody oak-apple flavor and a metallic citrus finish. this is like a very well made movie, but one in which i don’t really identify with the plot or motives of the leading characters. good acting, well scripted; and, while one can imagine a well meaning yeast lover dragging you to see it, it didn’t really light my fire. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Pours a cloudy orange with a nice white head. Very wheaty aroma with hints of orange peel, clove, and a light caramelized malt hint. Taste is citrusy and bready, light caramel notes, then finishes off with a light floral hopping. Very dry and crisp, with a aftertaste that reminds me of the smell of orange peels.

huge, soft rolling white head, nice and tight. plenty of tiny carbonation fill the caramely wheat colored body. Aroma is prevailed by wheat and bananna, accented by clove & a bit of grapefruit. classic wheat beer! boy do I miss home. flavor shows a surprising grainy/flaked barley character. toasty. effervescence delivers the lfavor to all corners of the mouth, a bit of cloying holds it there. becomes sweeter and more wheaty as it warms up, blending pleasantly with the spice and fruit aromas.

Bottle. Yellow-gold with a moderate white head that diminished mostly leaving little lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit - banana and papaya - mellow with yeasty notes as well. Flavor is also fruity and slightly tart in the finish with some spiciness evident as well. Medium light body and mellow carbonation. Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Darkish yellow gold with the expected haze. Cereal like nose, like cream of wheat. Sort of plain tasting, a little tangy but not much lemon, bannana or clove, maybe a little diacetyl. Sort of dissapointing. igneous1 (1537) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - APR 29, 2004
hazy medium golden, head is off-white, quickly disappearing. aroma is quite tart, yeasty and maybe oxidized. flavor is quite vinous and not hefe-like at all...fruity, and buttery...has chardonnay notes all over it. hotstuff (5201) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2004
Bottled. A large sized white head with fine sized bubbles that fully diminished. The body had very little carbonation, yeasty, hazy and a yellow hue. The aroma was malty, banana, spicy and clove. This beer had a sweet, banana and spicy taste to it with a smooth and watery mouthfeel. This was a medium bodied beer with sparse lacing. There are better German Hefe's out there in my opinion.
