On tap at Mile Square in Hoboken. One of my favorite Hefeweizens, i love a tall glass with a lemon (really just for appearance, i never like to "fruit" my beers).

Let me iterate firstly that I have always been impartial to wheat/white beers. I really enjoy the citrus taste and find it a delicious alternative to the bitter side of beer when I need reprieve.
This beer has a foamy bright white head that dissipates at a medium to slow pace.
The taste is leans towards being one sided as most beers this style tend to be, though the individuality of the ingredients is best enjoyed without the usual orange/lemon slice that’s served in the glass.
The beer itself is gorgeous. A delightfully opaque bright orange glow accentuates the thick, sediment laden character of the beer, usually leaving flavorful sediment in the bottom of the glass/bottle you drink it from.
I’ve had this beer a thousand times either in a bottle or on tap -- it’s always a treat. Especially when you need to town down from a recent IPA binge.
I seem to bounce between these two styles of beer semi-regularly.

330ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden/orange colour with a small fluffy head. Aromas of banana, wheat, clove and citrus. Taste of wheat and citrus, very smooth, medium body and good carbonation. One of my favorite heffeweizens.

Delicious beer all around, and the one I always point to when trying to get people to enjoy a true german hefe instead of the american style ones. Strikes a great balance of sweet banana esters, dry wheat, light clove, and light citrus hints. Palate is lively carbonated and perfectly balanced. One of the best hot summer day brews in my opinion.

On tap. Golden yellowish in colour with a rather large fluffy white head. Disgusting and sweet. Notes of fruity chewinggum, banana and yeasts. Very artificial and extremely sweet.

Pours medium orange to amber, head disappeared within one minute, wheaty and "fizzy" with a little alcohol taste. Taste was not as sweet as many wezenbiers. Aftertaste was pleasing. In the plethora of Bavarian weizenbiers this one is in the mid range. I haven’t tasted a bad one yet.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2011 12 oz bottle served at the Bull Run Inn. Served in a tall pint glass with lemon. The beer’s body resembled a sort of witbier. The taste differed in the sense that it was a bit more wheatier. Nice beer. Smooth, good taste. This brew pwns any other gimp-ass beers in its league.
