On tap (Scruffy Murphey’s, downtown Columbus, GA): Cloudy, yellow-orange body with nice head. Light flavor with a refreshing hint of banana in the background. Overall very good. SDalkoholic (2393) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 15, 2005
12 oz bottle: For some reason i always thought i had already picked this up before and thought it was alright. Aroma is a moderate but refreshing smell of the classic examples of a true German hefeweizen. Chewed bubblegum, an old banana peel, and hints of clove and yeast sit right behind the two inseparable staples. The flavor isn’t as promising as the aroma had tricked me into believing, but it’s still a worhty hef to be drank. A decent amount of bubblegum and yeast found in the flavor while a satisfying amount of wheat outweigh everything else. Maintains a sturdy covering of foam until the the very end as the clear golden liquid disappears.

Bottle. Hazy amber color with a huge frothy white head that diminished slowly. Good sweet wheat aroma. Light to medium texture. Good refreshing wheat and fruit flavor wih a moderate sweet finish. thegreenrooster (4406) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 14, 2005
Pour is a hazy yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is my is hard to detect but you do get some spices and cloves. Flavor is a bit weak in mine. In fact i have to really almost try to detect what was used. I get some banana and vanilla but again its very weak. Maybe an old bottle since i bought this at a place you would not go to get good craft beer. Franziskaner is still the best. Marko (5718) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 14, 2005
After a long search, I’ve finally found this..... in a bar near my uni. Great. 0.33l bottle, drank from a Paulaner weissbier glass. Said 5.5%, but same thing probably. It poured an enormous, thick white head, gold/orange colour. Not as misty as some, but who cares. Well carbonated. The nose was spicy, with hints of bananas maybe, not as assertive as in, say, Franziskaner, but nice enough. The taste was....well.... good. Typical weissbier taste, only better. Banana, lemon, yeast. Pleasant stuff. Faint banana aftertaste. Doesn’t beat Franziskaner in my opinion, but that one’s a sentimental favorite, and that probably has something to do with it.

Not one of my favorite styles, but starting to become a believer. He has a nice cloudy amber color with a lasting thick and creamy head. Has a smooth banana aftertaste that makes the beer even more enjoyable. Still like them with out lemon, but learning more and more each time I try a Hefeweizen.

Very pleasant cloudy look but no significant head. Very crisp and refreshing with a bit of lemon taste. Smooth texture but nothing incredible. Very good appearance. bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 7, 2005
Exceptional hefeweizen. One of my favourite styles, and this version just proves why. It pours a lovely, consistent cloudy orange marmalade colour with a thick, creamy and lasting head. Dusty banana and cloves aroma with a hint of tutti frutti. A great balanced flavour, with the sweetness counteracted with some sour and bitter. It’s very fresh in the mouth with a medium body and a satisfying aftertaste. I’ll be definitely going back for more of this. lovelacm (48) - Niceville, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2005
US 12oz Bottle pour - Don’t have any of my weizen glasses with me. Thus, not quite as large a head as I’m used to. Light, cloudy Amber body. Aroma was very nice - banana, clove, cinnamon, fruity. Flavor was excellent - much richer banana flavor with less spice than I prefer. Full, creamy texture with a long, slightly sweet finish. Very nice, indeed. Cheers!

This was my first weissbier - almost 2o years ago - and therefore pure nostalgia. Still tastes great. Cloudy golden colour with a huge lasting head. Aroma and taste of fruit and spices. Full body. This is the original. Every other weissbier is just a copy.
