bottle - Pours light amber with insignificant small, off-white head. Sweet, yeasty nose with some notes of citrus, bubblegum, and apple. Flavor a bit flat, a little yeast with a bit of honey but not much going on there. It was refreshing but was missing something.

Aroma with banana, toast, basement aromas, cheese. Expected more hops. Nice cloudy red body and good foamy head. Tastes too sweet and very little bitterness. Disappointing. (Bottle 355ml, 2,00 EUR) cbfobes (2888) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2010
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a very light golden color with little white head and no lacing, aroma has slight banana but overall seems weak, the taste is much of the same, overall it is thin compared to other Hefeweizens and just can’t compare. badwhale (420) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2010
Bottle to pint glass. Good amount of white head with sparse lacing. Nice darker yellow color. I didn’t get much aroma from it. Flavors are a sweet mellon fruit flavor. Decent carbonation. SchlossyMcSaus (75) - San Marcos, California, USA - MAR 30, 2002
Man, why make a middle of the road wheat like this? It claims to step up to the plate, 'in the tradition of German hefes', C'mon. If your gonna pay for a heffe premium, reach for the Paulaner, the Aventinus, the Schneider, and thats the stuff. It has some citrusy flavors, the usual action, didn't hold a head too long, and let's you toss in the goody at the bottom, but don't hold this up as a shining example of the form, let me down a little.

Hmmm...smells like a hefeweizen; looks like a hefeweizen; doesn't taste like a hefeweizen. Only flavors in there are malt and yeast. No dry finish, no spice. Nice hazy golden color though. Looked & smelled promising before falling flat on the first sip. I'll pass on this - and most of their line - in the future. tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2002
Very citrusy - almost cloying sweetness. Sourness throughout. Lemons and bananas, oh my! jjw2000 (72) - USA - APR 3, 2003
UPDATED: APR 22, 2003 Liked this even less than the FD pale ale. With the added fruit flavor, the spice taste stands out even more unpleasantly.

Hazy light golden yellow with a medium quickly diminishing white head. Aroma of banana, clove, wheat, light bread, honey and pepper. Medium light watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Weak, grassy flavor of apple, banana, clove, pepper and wheat with some hints of citrus. Decent, but uninspiring. darkerdabetter (255) - Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2004
On tap @ Flying Saucer - Reminded me a lot of a Bells Oberon, very murky and slightly hoppy, but a bit too much citrus and other fruit flavors for my likes. Pretty flat also.
