Thanks Monger. Cloudy yellow pour, big white head that stays. Huge bubblegum aroma. Flavor is bubblegum, lots of wheat, banana, and some lemon. Thick mouthfeel and sweet yet not tart at all and just creamy as hell. Phenolic yeast throughout as well with clove notes in the background. Good beer. akevitt (97) - Valhalla, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Thanks to JK for sharing! Mildly cloudy yellow with light foam. I get wheat, yeast, banana, and some spices. Zeswaft (1783) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2007
Based on 1.5 bottles and one more to come i think this might be one of the best beers ever. hands down the best German hefe, even over weihenstephaner. uber creamy texture. rich and smooth vanilla, banana, and bubblegum. just totally balanced and delicious. God damn it. Now, i’m just pissed that i’ll probably never be able to have this again and that i missed all their other hefeweizens. Guerde (1297) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2009 bottle, thanks JK) Light cloudy orange pour with a large white head. Somewhat spicy aroma with clove with some notes of banana. Flavor is very fruit sweet at first which then shifts to spice and then mellows to a nice wheaty finish. The mouthfeel is very nice on this one, quite thick. Definitely one of the best Hefes I’ve had. sthlm (790) - Blank, Alabama, USA - SEP 3, 2007
On second try, I got a lot of banana bread in the aroma, and as the beer warmed it became really fruity.
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2007 [Bottle, thanks JK] Pours slightly hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is fruity--banana. A little spicy too, nutmeg I think. Definitely doesn’t have a taste explosion, but it is pleasant. Medium mouthfeel. Very smooth.

Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet wheaty with light notes of banana and other fruits, as well as hints of plastic. The flavor is sweet malty and wheaty, combined with notes of banana and oranges, as well as notes of bread, leading to a slightly bitter and dry wheaty finish. faroeviking (11220) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - SEP 1, 2007
