Review sample, labeled as Hacker-Pschorr Weiss. Pours a big fluffy head in a tall glass, darker in color, a bit cloudy but more like an American wheat beer than a Hefe Weizen. Slight smell with just a little bit of fruity esters and a slightly spicy compliment from wheat malt. The taste does have a little bit of bubblegum and a slight touch of banana. Not as much spice as we know Weizen, again close to an American wheat style. The sweetness is subdued so there’s not as much need for hops to balance it. The fruit and bubble gum in the nose are not as apparent in the taste. It is a little ticket than a Hefe, or for that matter, than a typical lawn mower beer, so be seated while you enjoy. No lemon, please. Some yeast sediment at the bottom but it’s too solid to pour into your glass.

Import Bottle. I've enjoyed this as a draft a few times, so how does a bottle taste after a long journey? Quite the same. I'm enjoying this as a "commuter speacial" (out of the bottle in a brown paper sack on the train). Good spicy weiss smell, actually a tad understated. Cloudy body. Full banana and clove taste, with a hint of lemon. A nice little head works up in the bottle. And a fine, playful effervescence on the tongue. A fine, fine beer.

500 ml swing top bottle. Gushing alert! I popped the bottle and it rushed out of the vessel like a damn volcano. Know that, dear beer fellows. Huge everlasting fluffy white head. The beer showed itself in the glass as a beautiful foggy yellow honey brew. Surprisingly lazy and soft carbonation (gushing result?). Aroma gives me a strong yeast profile; some bubblegum & banana; distinct wheat aka flour; vague hop spiciness. Flavour is big wheat, sour yeast, pleasant floral spiciness. Smooth mouthfeel. A-class hefeweizen. Less phenolic and sour as many other examples are. Wonderful!

A very good example of the style. A very good import from a historical brewery. Don’t miss it.

Dark golden color, bordering on copper. Quite nice yeasty and malty aromas, with noticeable banana, and baked wheat bread crust. Not too much clove in the smell. Very yeast-driven flavor, the clove-like phenols really pop out on the tongue. Has a bit of citrus tartness and some sweet bread tones. Finishes a bit metallic and a noticeable hop bite in the end, mixed with spiciness from the yeast. The clove just hangs on the tongue for minutes after a sip. Often, I complain about hefes being not spicy enough, but I feel there is too much yeast character for this to be enjoyable. For me, the style should be thirst quenching and crisp. This has too busy of a palate, the clove-notes keeping this from being refreshing. I’d call it good for what it is, very complex, but not my style. Yet, I would buy it again for certain food pairings.

Très jolie robe jaune sombre et trouble. Bel équilibre global, épicée en légèreté, clou de girofle et muscade. Une jolie bière de blé. Étonnant je l’ai préférée en pression ???
