3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s a good hefeweizen, but not the best. The palate a little bit too fruity and intense.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2010 Warm golden, hazy, nice head. The aroma is just right for a good German weiss: Lots of wheat, banana and other fruits. And the flavour is just as nice, and this one comes very close to my beloved Maisel Original - not bad, not at all bad!! It has notes of lots of wheat, banana and other fruits, honey and flowers. It’s difficult to let the glass alone, it’s really nice...

A decent German Weiss. Gorgeous pour - pale straw/golden color and a billowy white foamy head. Aroma had the usual estery notes, but less of the clove/bubblegum than I had hoped for. Pleasant on the palate, but didn’t have that wow factor that I get with the best weiss beers. One I’d certainly order if available, but not one I’d go out of my way to find.

Instant Hefeweizen aroma of musty clove and banana and textbook cloudy appearance but the flavour is a little muted and slightly washed out compaired to other "Hefe’s"

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Classic hefeweizen aroma of banana, lemon, and clove, but also a little grassy. Shimmering amber, thick white head. Bready, well balanced, lemon and clove flavor. Finishes with subtle honey when warm. Lacks distinction but well done. Easy to enjoy. On par with Schneider Original.

This one is not my favorite weissbier. I’m not sure if this one was not fresh either. The monk on the bottle fired me up like this would be one of the best. It fell short.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yellow to orange, head dissipates quickly. Quite wheaty, perfumed soap aroma. Slightly fizzy in the mouth. Sharp and sour taste, a bit dodgy if you ask me. Perhaps almonds or marzipan. A bit watery. Maybe I had a duff one? Might re-rate as I like the style generally.

On tap at Spuyten Duyvil on 9/14/07: Pours a cloudy golden bronze with a well-lacing frothy white head. Aroma of sweet malted wheat, banana, clove and bready yeast. Body starts full with nice sweetness and doughy bready yeast and a touch of bitter clove spice. A nice hefeweizen.
