I don’t see Kalt-Loch anywhere; mine’s a 4-pack of 330 ml Miltenberger Helles Hefe Weizen brought over by Bavaria Imports. Brags of a cold-track system to keep it fresh, and it seems to be, but is still affordable. Looks like a hefe, fluffy white head and all. Smells of banana. My gripe is that it is overly tart, dominating any banana or spice. Kind of light as well. Still pretty good. I’d chill it more than usual. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Pours a hazy yellow, decent lasting head, nice enough. Aroma was soft clove, lemon, and faint banana. Flavor is wheat, a suprise appearance by bubblegum as clove fades into the background, some banana, and a lemony finish. Not bad, a fair amount going on here, subtle, with nothing over the top. Would prefer a bit more malt firmness. TheBeerGod (6224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 6, 2008
Bottle. I’m assuming this goes here. The label says that this is the Miltenberger Helles Hefe Weizen @ 4.9% ABV. Back label states Brewed by Miltenberger Brewery D-63987 Miltenberg, Germany. Pours cloudy gold. Small white head. Nose is wheat, soft yeast, bubblegum, candy, spice, and lemon. Taste is sweet malts, wheat, yeast grains, spice, and banana. Soft lemon and bubblegum here too. Body is light and bubbly. Soft feel to the carbonation. Finish amps up the yeast and wheat. Bigger lemony tartness, malts, grains, light spice and fruit notes. Not bad on a warm night. dirt55 (198) - Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2008
bottled, aroma of wheat with heavy citrus, poured mildly cloudy yellow with nice big white head, taste matches aroma well with a lot of citrus with some mild wheat/malt combo, fairly full and carbonated mouth feel, could drink this all day during summer scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Since 1654? Hrm. looks like the world is just catching on to the brewery. very clear straw to yellow and a tight dense stark white head with good body and shape. strong banana aroma with classic german hef yeast as well. agitated the sediment to provide some haze, with only minor results. very soft and simple, though clean and smooth. i prefer these beers to be more heavy and bold in character. the banana/clove flavors are muted in the background and the soft filtered wheat body dominates my attention. great for breakfast or for a hot day i s’pose.

had this at an international beerfest. Very tasty. Nice hefeweizen - cloudy light golden brown. Spring is here....wheat ales are in the air. TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 7, 2008
Pours lightly cloudy, bright golden with a mostly maintained wispy off-white head. Aroma of clove, banana, sweet yeasty esters. Taste is of lively esters: banana, pear, clove, and bubble gum. Medium bodied with lush, lively carbonation. Very nice hefe. pivnizub (10621) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 25, 2007
Bottle: Cloudy, pale golden coloured, huge fluffy white head; yeasty, citrus-fruity nose with an illusion of hops; moderate sweetish-sourish flavour, rather light bodied; a little tartness shows up in the sweetish-sourish-orangey finish. A pleasant and refreshing Weizen......... MoritzF (9901) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2006
(bottle) Cloudy, hazy yellow coloured, effervescent hue with a big foamy white head. Aromatic sweet and chalky banana-fruity wheat aroma. Sweet flavour, lively carbonated, almost fizzy mouthfeel. Strong wheat-malty and banana-fruity taste, quite sharp yeasty and bitter spritzy finish. A rough Hefeweizen, not very complex but clean and tasty.
