Good Hefeweizen. Not as good as Paulaner. Pours a nice golden orangish/yellow. The funny thing about this beer is that when I bought it as the bottled picture it tasted nasty, but when I bought it in the six pack it was pretty good. I wish there was a bigger Hefeweizen following. This beer was decent. I am starting to enjoy Imperial Stouts more and more. The flavor was okay, Hefeweizens are becoming too carbonated and too thin for my taste, but for Hefes this has a thick taste to it. It had the taste of fruit, I would lean closer to lemons, or a sour orange if I had to choose a citrus flavor. Decent pour, the head settles quicker than other Hefes. Please God bless this planet with better Hefeweizens! Maybe my nose is messed up but I don’t smell any bananas!

Enjoyed at Kurt’s Steak House in Delafield, WI. Pours a cloudy orange-yellow color with a generous white, long-lasting head. Aroma is strong and pleasing to the end of the beer, with a sour yeastiness, spices, and a refreshing citrus edge. Flavor profile matches. Mouthfeel appropriate for style. Quite enjoyable and most of my business party had been ’converted’ by the end of the event.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice golden color, very cloudy, lots of foam.
Grainy aroma with some spice and fruit.
Fruity taste with nice malt. Hints of banana, clove, and citrus.
Mouthfeel was a little heavy for me.
Good, but not my favorite of the genre. Not my top pick for the style.

Puors into a beatiful cloud, with a long lasting creamy head. A meal in itself, refreshing and fulfilling. Hints of citrus.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a golden orange color with lots of white head. Aroma of wheat and citrus. Taste is of yeast and citrus with some spices. Palate is somewhat thin but has some texture to it so it remains easily drinkable without being too watery. Overall a nice beer if your looking for something refreshing with a decent amount of flavor.

You have to be careful pouring this one, in his own glass it has a massive foam if you don’t take care. A golden very cloudy colour and lots of chunks ( that I like to pour when we talk about a non-filtered beer. Aroma of banana, peaches and maybe apples, and of course cloves. Velvety mouth, with the fruits and the clove again, and citruses notes with maybe some coriander. Very refreshing, medium to light body that make it easily drinkable.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2016 Bottle & draft. Pours a deep, hazy orange body with thin white head. Nose is strong spice, soft citrus, yeast and sugars. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and super spicy with notes of bright spicy yeast, clove, orange peel, wheat and light fruity malts.

This is, in my mind, the standard by which other Hefeweizens are judged. This beer is cloudy in color with abundant head. Aroma is lots clove. Flavor is additional spiciness. I had this beer on tap last night, and have had it from the bottle many other times; I actually feel it is slightly better from the bottle (I like the bit of sediment in the bottom). Mouthfeel is smooth. All-in-all, quite good.
