One of the better Euro beers to buy in bottle. A decent hefe as long as you swirl at the end. Good flavor and aroma, bananas and bubblegum. A good overall beer.

Had this one on tap at Old Chicago. Cloudy golden with a thick, frothy white head. The aroma was of citrus, orange and lemon. The taste is dominated by classic hefeweizen notes of clove and banana. There are also notes of lemon and citrus. So many American wheat beers have a big burst of flavor up front and then quickly fade into watery ambiguity, but this one remains consistent all the way to the bottom of the mug. One of my all time favorites. Great summer and session beer.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2008 On Tap and in a bottle poured into a glass. A sweet almost banana smelling beer. Pours a nice cloudy yellow color with a thick creamy head. A mellow and smooth tasting Hef. It is a pretty good Hefeweizen, but I actually preferred Hacker-Pschor’s Hef. A little too sweet tasting for me.

pours a cloudy golden color. Slight hints of orange to the color. small white head. The aroma was quite nice. It was yeasty, wheaty, and spicy, also with notes of banana. The flavors mirrored the aromas.

Kinda like drinking fruity clouds. Definitely one of the best hefes out there. Rich yeasty aroma but very light on the palate and filled with classic bubble gum hefe flavors.

This is the only hefe where I tasted raspberries, peaches and I think the beer is too sweet. Page 353 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 299 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.
