3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Pours hazy gold with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is cloves, banana, oranges peel, straw, and floral notes. Flavor is sweet malt forward with floral notes, light fruit esters, and faint herbs; dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.
Pours hazy yellow with a finger of white head. Aroma is refreshing and light with banana spice esters. Flavor is smooth and very well balanced with tangy banana pineapple shining through.

The pour of Gordon Biersch Hefeweizen is hazy orange and its head dissipates quickly for a wheat beer. The aroma of ripe bananas greets the nose, while citrus and clove are relatively muted for the style. After the bready, grainy malt attack, the smooth mid-palate unfolds its banana, citrus, and clove notes before the short and crisp finish. This brew is easy to drink and although relatively simple, it’s not a bad introduction to the hefeweizen style. aphasialiu (59) - TAIWAN - JUL 9, 2017

Cloudy yellow pour, white head. Aroma is zesty citrus and wheat. Flavor is lots of citrus and tart. Luneylane (267) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - MAR 9, 2017
Draught at GBs in Xin Yi. Aroma: floral, Parma violets. Appearance: cloudy, rich gold. 2-3 mm. white head. Palate: full-bodied and oily, soft carbonation; long, sweet finish. Taste: well-balanced - heavily sweet and pleasantly bitter. One is enough, though good nonetheless.

Sample on tap @ the brew house restaurant in Baltimore, MD. Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a foamy white head. Crisp clean refreshing. Nice banana and clove flavors. Good for the style but not the best. Enjoyable. Zymurgeist2 (2440) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 18, 2016
Draught at SJ airport. Nose is mostly clove but rather restrained. Slight fruity esters. Orange-ish gold and hazy with moderate white head. Fruity and slightly cardboard flavor - clean line issue at the airport? Not really any Hefe aspects here. jsquire (4677) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Hazy yellow with a foamy white head. Light yeasty nose with some spice notes. Light beer with a thin clove, banana and water taste. Thin generic hefe. drjoeng (1466) - SINGAPORE - APR 18, 2016
Tapped out light amber. 8ºSRM.
Nose has banana and bubble gum aromas. Sweet and ester-like with the aroma of just over-ripe fruit.
Mouthfeel is carbonated. There is some pronounced carbonation which on first impression is soda-like, then opens up to the grain palate which is pale to lightly toasted malt. Full-bodied and reminiscent of a malted milkshake or malted candy. "Horlicks" for those in the know. Also has that formic acid tang that always reminds me of the acrid aroma you get when you crush red ants’ most commonly described as phenolic. You get this in the back of the throat and in the back of the tongue. No hops that you can really taste.
Finish is lager-like and beery and not entire unpleasant, especially if this well-endowed brew is sitting next to a pork knuckle.
A very very creditable Hefe. I actually liked this one... JohnRMurdoch (5152) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2016
Tap @ Gordon Biersch, Taipei. Cloudy yellow brown, reasonable head. Spicy wheat aroma. Big banana clove flavour. Smooth with sweet aftertaste. Decent enough hefe but lacking fizz.
