Incredible hefe. Pours cloudy dark yellow with a puffy white head. Aroma of bananas and wheat. Very smooth and strong taste. Wheat, yeast, bananas, lemon, and citrus all mixed and balanced throughout. Highly recommended. doubleipa (224) - Georgia, USA - APR 3, 2006
Great head and lacing. Great aroma of yeast and lemon. As is Taco Mac’s style, this was server waay too cold. After I let it warm up some the real wheat aroma came through. Taste is, of course, right on for this good example of a German Hefe. I was glad to see, at least, that the bartender didn’t put a lemon slice in the beer. This is a great beer to have on a hot, early summer day in Atlanta. kevin62 (267) - New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2006
This was poured from a 16oz bottle into a huge weizen glass.Its appearance was cloudy and yellow with a nice white head.The aromas of banana and wheat and lemon were awesome and seductive.Then the taste,which included all the aromas,as well as bubblegum made this beer a fantastic beer experience. beeaman (16) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 26, 2006
Porurs smoothly w/ a thunk like good beer should. Huge golden to white head. Initial hoppy smell followed by fruits and cereal. Cloudy but not murky composition. Clear enough to see bubbles rising. Very prounouced sweet banana taste. Also some apricot, rich heavy cream, and fresh dough. Very appealing mouthfee. Smooth like a glass of cold milk. What little aftertaste there is, is very pleasant. Not the typical hefe, but very very good in it’s own right. TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2006
UPDATED: APR 2, 2006 Plastic sample cup at the Penn Museum. Wheat and spices. Beautiful, even in a little plastic cup. Taste is fresh grass, mild sweet citrus with a foamy body. Not as pasty-wheaty as other wittes I’ve had. Worth another try. 4/1/06 - Tried again and rated the same. Cloudy tea with a glacial head. Thick champagne with a full mouth. I like the way the citric carb cuts through the wheat body to make for easy drinkin’.

Draught at Ayinger Speis and Trank. This must be the best hefeweizen around. Lots of aroma and taste, good palate and laaaasting finish. HenrikSoegaard (14598) - Randers, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2006
Draugt at Ayinger Speis und Trank. Fantastic hefe. Creamy white excellent fully lasting head. Yellow cloudy colour. Very powerfull yeaty aroma, one of the best. Average citrus-finsh. A little watery compared to other good hefe. porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAR 17, 2006
(500 ml bottle) Pours cloudy pale grayish yellow with a huge foamy white head. Aroma is wheaty, citrusy. Poor spotty lacing. Mouthfeel full, pretty smooth. Flavor is wheaty malt (with the glue-like flavor quality I associate with wheats) with a citrusy tang finish. Nice, refreshing. kseecs16 (1216) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2006
Bottle. Poured a very cloudy gold with a thick foamy white head that left little lacing, but floated on the beer as a considerable head. A sour lemony smell veiled a more hidden yeasty sweetness in the background. The flavor is sweet and fruity with a citrus tang to it. The finish is mildly bitter that does not linger but leaves your mouth watering with its tartness. Crisp, clean, and refreshing, thoroughly enjoyable. ghorsche (48) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAR 8, 2006
500ml bottle. Poured murky pineapple gold into a footed pilsner glass with a rapidly diminishing 3-finger white head. Very nice color. The nose is almost all DMS with a little bit of sweet grain and a faind whiff of banana in the background. Sweet graininess at first sip immediately overcome by strong DMS. Medium-long finish with banana and sweetness, a little butter. Very refreshing with a crisp, lively mouthfiel. Thankfully, the DMS flavor fades rapidly after the first sip. Overall, not as good as Weihenstephaner but better than any other bottled hefeweizen I’ve yet tried.
