2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33L bottle. Classic hazy light yellow colour. Almost no banana and bubble in the mouth, very dry with some spices (cinamon and clove) and some faint pineapple notes. Very refreshing but not too complex.

golden brown appearance with a strong white head. flavor is of esters with hints of clove and cinnamon. aftertaste is almost bitter and it really brings the beer down. nothing special at all

My all-time favorite beer. Almost sweet, grassy taste, fantastic light color. Very cheap to buy in Germany. Top-notch.

Draught. Hazy straw color. Citrusy aroma. Sweet candy sweetness, lemon, slight banana. Unique tasting. Not your typical hefeweizen.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drank this on 06-05-07 out of a weizen glass from a bottle. This beer was fairly common all throughout Germany and Austria. Cloudy gold pour with a 1/2 finger white head and lots of visible carbonation. Lots of banana, light citrus, a little coriander and very little wheat to smell. Wheaty and lemony with a little spice and clove thrown in initially. Fades to a pale malty and banana aftertatse. Carbonation is a little heavy but the beer has a solid medium body. A bit weaker and paler than I like my hefes, but an ok standard that is readily available.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a big sudsy head that can’t wait to disappear.
Smells of hay and not much else (which is strange, because other reviewers are mentioning so much that is definitely not coming from this glass).
The mouthfeel is crisp with perfectly balanced carbonation.
Tastes of sour apple, hops, citrus, and a smidgen of cloves. Very light in this department.
For a Hefe Weizen, this was a major disappointment. Of all I’ve had from Germany, this is not up to snuff. It almost seems more like a typical German lager, which it shouldn’t. I won’t be having this one again.

Bottle. Cloudy amber with a big white head. Banana aroma with some cloves and yeast. Flavour of more bananas and spice. This was a bit one-dimensional.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours with an immense white head, audibly crackling as it fades rather quickly to a sudsy froth over a thick hazed, golden/amber body showcasing moderate-to-heavy carbonation. Banana bread aroma, albiet a loaf that has been sitting out overnight. Notes of cinnamon and allspice. Dank undertones. Thick, full body with tail-end chalkiness. Yeasts and malts meld nicely with the same-as-above bananas vs. breadiness, but a lemon-tart wash clears (or covers?) these flavors quickly. The impression that lasts is sadly that of 50/50 (lemon-lime soda). I was saving this for the occasion of saluting the late, great <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=8 as I passed him within the ranks of the Weizenvolker, but I’m now rather glad the event slipped my mind as this would have been a mediocre epitaph.

Meh. Still in search of a good craft-brew hefeweizen. Not much offered in aroma or flavor.
