Delicious lemon and vanilla scented wheat beer with yeast. This is an aristocratic beer with a champagne sparkle and a beautifully sustained head. With the pale color of mountain honey and tart refreshing palate, it is a "brut" beer with the delicious, complex fruitiness of extra-dry champagne. Bottle conditioned and top fermented, it is a benchmark for this style of beer. The nose is fruity-spicy, herbaceous with lots of flowers, and fruit. With such a creamy head, you can build miniature mountains that resemble the Alps. Pour slowly, fill the special weissbier glass half full and swirl the bottle on the table to put the yeast in suspension.

Bottle from Monster Beverage in Glassboro. Hazy goldenrod pour supporting a hefe-worthy tall white head. Plenty of thick lacing. Strong clove, banana and yeast on the nose. Same flavors follow from the glass with a little lemon, apple and corriander. Light but not thin texture and a wondefully crisp dry finish. Nothing extraordinary but still a very good traditional German hefe.

16.9 oz. bottle. Strong, yeasty, classic hefeweizen aroma: orange, lemon, bubblegum, cinnamon. Smells great! Pours a cloudy gold with a large amount of white head and a small amount of suspended particulate. Seems to be even cloudier than a typical hefeweizen. Produces limited lacing. Flavor of bubblegum and skittles as well as sour citrus. Disappointing lack of complexity given the wonderful aroma. Tart. There is a slight touch of bitterness that I would not expect from a hefeweizen in the finish. Little aftertaste. Light to medium body. Lively in the palate. Easy to drink. A good example of a style that is perfect for a sunny late spring or summer day.

Deep golden color, hazy but not quite cloudy, good initial head that dissipates quickly, lasting carbonation. aroma is spice/banana. Flavor retains the spice and banana notes, and adds citrus, more tart than bitter. Very good overall for a wheat beer.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Pours hazy gold, puffy white head. Aroma is yeasty, banana, and lemon. Flavor is yeast, banana, vanilla. Finish is spice. A lot of flavors, but doesn’t do much for me.

StumpMe (30) - Bellingham, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Bottle. I didn’t have many notes for this beer other than the aroma was bready and had hints of banana, apple and pear. Nicely carbonated with a foamy head. light body. classic hef

TheBeerBaron (261) - Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy pale straw color, high white head and mild carbonation. Buttery wheat aroma with slight lemon zest, just a hint of hops detected. Tingly plate with a sticky filmy feel. The filmy feel coincides with a soapy flavor. A lemony soap taste kind of like the dish detergent my wife uses. Germans might love to tout the the purity law, but quality control was lacking on this weisse.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAY 21, 2007
Nose of cereal & grain, subtle fruit. Pours a cloudy straw. The nice cascade resolves itself into a super colossal white uber creamy and mega stiff head that is fully lasting, and leaves light lace. The light flavor is malty but not overly so. The light body is very creamy and soft.

malrubius (2955) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 20, 2007
UPDATED: APR 12, 2008 Bottle in Franziskaner glass. Pours beautiful pale, cloudy yellow/orange with lasting dense white head. Aroma is citrus, banana and vanilla-like sweetness. Very refreshing and assertive flavors of banana, vanilla, tartness, and spiciness. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Excellent example of this style IMHO. Had this again 4/11/08. Deserves more ovall points. Awesome.

PilsnerPeter (3049) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Tap: Lively hazy yellowish pour with an initially large frothy white head. Very yeasty aroma with wheat hints. Sharp carbonation, with a nice wheat malt character, and some sweet banana notes. A decent Hefeweizen; good session beer.

SHIG (4963) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAY 18, 2007
Bottle: Poured a cloudy yellow color with a thick creamy white head. The aroma is a yeast fruit almost banana like, very nice one the nose. Wow fruit jumped out to my taste buds, but still had a nice bready yeast and sour bite that is common to hefe! I adore this one.
