Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Bottle, Dodgy Deli, Oxford. Hazy copper, dense, persistent white head. Clove, kiwi, banana and orange peal, handled with a subtle touch, good fresh white bread yeasty warmth. Refreshingly sparkly citrus malt flavor accented with a little tartness. Citrus on the exhale and lingering spice. As Fin noted, nothing particularly wintery about this. But man is it good! Having never heard of this brewery before, and generally not getting all that worked up about hefeweizens, my expectations for this were pretty restrained. (Added to that the lousy 47th style percentage.) But I really dig this beer. I’m gonna go stock up on this one since I’ll probably never see it again. JPDIPSO (6262) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 30, 2002
A very nice ur-weiss. Not quite what I would expect from a winter. Lacking in the yeast complexity. Good light clove and banana. Sweet wheat and malt present. Thinner in mouthfeel as expected for the style. Just so close. shrubber85 (11570) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 24, 2010
Bottle. Sweet banana, orange, clove and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy orange-brown color with large head. Sweet banana/toffee malt flavor initial followed by strong spiciness - clove, pepper, light nutmeg. Very spicy dunkelweizen but well balanced - no flavor dominates. Very nice.

0,5L from tap, aroma of yeast and malt, light banana, too. Light brown colored, off-white head medium carbonation. Light hoppy initial taste, yeasty and slightly sweet. Light bitter aftertaste. baseballguy (246) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 5, 2002
The head on this beer is really rather incredible (the picture on the page here is quite accurate); I actually ate it with a spoon. Once you get to the beer itself, it's a flavorful wheat.

Cloudy light brown color, like apple cider, with a huge soapy head. Aroma of cloves, lemon, and only a very slight banana. Flavor is sweet and tangy with a mild spicy dry finish. Lingering alcohol presence in the throat. Surprisingly light carbonation, and full flavor. Not the best, but a nice dunkel weizen. hotstuff (5232) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2003
I did not find anything unique about this German Wheat. It poured a white head with fine-small bubbles. The body was cloudy and the color reminded me of cider. It had an aroma of clove to it and there was no lacing on the sides of my glass at all. There was carbonation observed with this brew. Nothing really stood this particular German Wheat apart from others that I have rated. JK (6249) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2004 Copper color. Large white head. Heavily carbonated with lots of bubbles, and the yeast is clearly visible in large pieces. Darker than many hefeweizens. Mild aroma of flowers and some wheat. Great flavor. Banana, clove, some citrus, and very sweet malt. A quality wheat. Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - APR 23, 2002
I'm sorry, but I'm feeling lazy at the moment. For now, though, I will say that I found this to be a rather typical German Wheat. Not unique in any way that I could notice, but sure not a bad beer. Just needs something to set it apart. Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - NOV 28, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2003 A touch hazy dark golden color with a diminishing head that left a layer of tiny bubbles forming on the surface like some Belgian ales. Very fruity aroma that reminded me more than anything of apples on the ground in an orchard, with plum and banana notes. Tangy on the tongue, with a toffee sweetness and a yeasty sourness, lemony and acidic with a dryish not much on it finish. I think this one had a little age on it but it was still hanging in there.
