3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Best by 07/2010. Consumed 04/19/10. 25oz bottle) I always stay far away from the import aisle. German, Polish, and other countries’ ales and lagers have always turned me off, and have never seemed to stand up to an American micro. On a whim, I bought a $1.49 bottle of this. [A] Banana. Wheat. Bready pale malts. Quite grainy. Cereal. Light citrus fruity aromas. Good start. [A] Very bright, yet extremely hazy yellow. Beautiful smooth white cap that just sits and stares. Drippy lacing. [F] Wheat, banana, and fruity bubblegum qualities upfront. Doughy, yeastiness. There is a grainy/barley taste that shows up as well. Either way, it is a great, refreshing balance. Not overly sweet, if at all sweet. [P] Quite pleasant. A great, easy drinker. Very thin-bodied. You could say watery. But what are you looking for in a hefeweizen? Extremely light, crisp feel. No real hop bitter, which doesn’t hurt. Clean finish. No booze, either.
[O] Really glad I gave this one a shot. For the price, I had nothing to lose. I’ve had Hacker-Pschorr before, but don’t recall it being as good as this German brew. Highly recommended to anyone. I’m not very fond of Hefes at all. Yet this was still satisfying. Seems like a great thirst quencher. I’d prefer more hops, but it still does the trick. 4.9% is just right. Why in the hell can’t I find a great AMERICAN micro hefe at this price point?

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Some beers, like this, I’m amazed I’ve never rated. On tap at Tap and Mallet. It was fresh and delicious and served in proper glassware, 4.9 ABV. Nose of ripe bananas, Taste was similar, with a touch of cloves. A dry finish indicating some hop presence. Cloudy and bright yellow with fluffy head. True to style and a bit above average, not the best, but very good.

Bottle. Not a bad German Hefeweizen but there are better ones out there. Cloudy gold in color with a two finger head. Taste and aroma were the usual banks and spice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Picked up a single 500 ml bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota. Pours a semi-clear golden pale colored brew with a thick off-white head that has some good retention. Aroma of banana esters, golden grain malt, a hint of honey and a touch of clove. Taste is medium bodied with flavors of both banana, clove esters, a hint of honey, a touch of bubblegum and sour dough bread. Finish is semi-sweet with a banana ester and floral hop aftertaste. A solid German hefeweizen throughout.

Bottle. Pours hazy straw with stable white head. Clear aroma of malt and banana, with notes of grain and yeast and touches of hops. Sweetish flavour of malt and banana, with notes of hops and grain. Sourish, grainy afteraste with malty hints. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light orange colour, hazy, medium head (surprisingly low for a hefe) is quite dense, shows good retention and some lacing. Aroma of strong banana with a slight fresh herbal feel and some lemon in the background. Taste has soft wheat malts foundation (white bread), strong banana, a hint of lemon and underlying spiciness (clove). Dominantly sweet as obvious but not too much (average sweetness as per style i would say). Light to medium body, medium to high carbonation, easy and decently lively. Averagely good

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ein Weißbier, was zu überzeugen weiß. Nicht übertrieben bananig, dafür dennoch angenehm fruchtig mit einer sehr feinen würzigen Note, die man zumindest als süffig bezeichnen kann. Prickelnd, aber nicht übertrieben in der Perlung und zudem ausgewogen und ausbalanciert. Gute Sache.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy wheaty gold with a thin foamy cap. Lovely bready and sunshiney nose that’s pleasantly wheaty and golden, not too yeasty or fluffy, with a nice little touch of clove and very light near-green banana. Clean and surprisingly crisp flavor that’s wheaty, a touch German blonde, light clove, light bready banana, and pleasantly bright.
