UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown swing top bottle this beer poured a yellow-golden color with a large white head. The aroma was a very nice mix of wheat, orange and lemon. The flavor was sweet, yeast and lightly bitter with undertones of lemon and banana. The mouthfeel was rather thick for a hefeweizen. Solid. cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2007
Swingtop 500ml bottle. Pours with huge head. Scents of green apples with banana and wheat notes. Yeasty flavor, with dry lingering aftertaste. Finishes on a crisp note. overall a decent beer LinusStick (3520) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Wow....This beer shows that Germans originated the hefe. I’m suprised this isn’t scoring higher with others. Aroma of full on banana with wheat and yeast. Pour was a lighter dark gold with a 1 finger white head with lots of small bubbles. Taste was full blown banana with bread and yeast in the throat. Strongly carbonated and deliciously semi dry. Glad this was 500. cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Rated 2/2/07: Not your ordinary Hefe, but it’s interestingly a good drink. Aroma is a little mellow some decent malt, grainy and wheaty with some sour fruits. Dark yellow pour with a light orange tint, huge fizzy white head that thickens up and settles down. Mouthfeel is alright nothing too spectacular. Taste has a hint of banana but I can’t stop thinking of applesauce. It’s odd but nice, now this one is about 4 months past the best before date, but there is a nice flavor of unsweetened applesauce that accompanies this beer. Ahhh, crisp clean finish. Not bad. shrubber85 (11666) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Swingtop bottle. Green apple, banana and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy dark orange-yellow with nice big head. Sour malt, lemon and banana flavor. Decent Hefe - probably better fresh from the tap.

Swingtop bottle at Rathskeller, Indy. Poured cloudy yellow color with a huge frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Moderate sour citrus and spice aroma. Light to medium bodywith a watery texture. Light sour citrus flavor with a light sweet finish with a short duration. Aurelius (5590) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Honey, grain aroma, and oddly molasses. Honey and cereal flavor. Sweet. Graham crackers. Great bottle, blah label. Finishes out with some light astringency. Cloudy orange. Big head. Fair, needs a wedge. At Rathskellar, Indianapolis. sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 13, 2007
500ml swingtop bottle. Best before 0408. Hazy orange hue. Thick finger of white head. Big nose. Lotta orange and cereal wheat. Touch corn and banana. Rather dry and perfumy. Big citrus acidity. Lively yet drying. Acidic bitterness. Tart. Not too quenching. Off-putting finish. Effervescent and estery. I didn’t really care for this one. lewis13 (49) - Kokomo, Indiana, USA - APR 6, 2007
