Pours a tall white head on a hazy yellow greenish body. Typical hefeweizen aroma of yeast, citrus and banana. Wheaty and yeasty flavor, quite fruity and somewhat harsh. Notes of banana.

Cloudy golden color,medium sized white head that had a nice long hangtime then faded to a decent lace.The aroma was citrusy,yeasty with a nice mild hop presence some bannana and maybe a light spice.Nice fruity flavor of bannana and some bread like qualit as well with maybe a slight hint of spice.The hops come through decently with a nice semi sweet after taste.Very nice and easy drinking brew that fits right into summer time relaxing.Thanks go to Shadey for this fine brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy amber colour. This is a weiss that places more emphasis on lemony citrus than estery banana. Apart from the citrus, there’s a smidgen of clove spice, a hint of yeast and a dab on vanilla, but nothing very assertive. Despite the relative lack of banana, this still had a sweetish feel to it. OK, and refreshing, but I found it on the dull side. 500ml bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk. BBE 14 August 2004.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light yellow in color, with a large white head that won’t go away. Subtle clove scent. Good clove taste, a little citrus there as well. Nothing to get excited about, but good.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured a lovely golden colour, with an enormous white, long lasting head. Aroma is cloves and bubblegum. Taste is a great wheat then citrus combination with some banana in there as well. Crisp and refreshing and very drinkable. Excellent mouthfeel, smooth with slight fizz on the tongue.
This has become an instant favourite, I urgently need to try the draught version!

Jeez, can’t remember much about this one (had 1 2 many), but it was a good hefe. Not a knockout, but it did finish nicely and had good, fresh, wheat/clove flavor.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. nice pour very attractive hazy orange tinted golden yellow. has a fluffy thick head that last. aroma is banana, wow what a surprise, a banana aroma from a hefe, who saw that coming. taste is watered down version of a good hefe. this isn’t bad, but there is nothing special here. apple hues in this flavor. leaves a refreshing clean taste, so that is good for the next beer i have i won’t be pining for this one.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Huge foamy head and a light straw body. Nose smells like artificial banana flavoring. Mild taste. Banana, yeast, and wheat dominate. Very watery. The Coors light of Hefeweizens. Blah.

Golden and cloudy color with a large white head when poured from the bottle. Not the best of the hefeweizen I’ve had but it holds it s own.
