UPDATED: AUG 17, 2008 Good stuff !
One of the best Wheat beers I have had.
Ripe Bananas, Coriander, and Cheap Pink Bubble gum on the aftertaste.
Had out of 22oz and of tap, Bottle was pritty damn close to the tap.
This overall is a must buy and try.
Funny thing about this brew is i’m finding a lot of "Non-Beer Drinkers" Actualy Enjoy this Wheat.
Open on a hot day and sit back and chill. unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - AUG 7, 2008
500ml bottle. pours clear yellow, white head. Clean herbal flavor. slow at first, then the character comes out. smooth, refreshing. gueuzeisgod (113) - Graham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2008
.5l bottle, rapidly collapsing head, a bit of DMS smell, only very light banana and spice, same for flavor. Moderate body fades quickly to a watery mouthfeel, a trace of hop bitterness persists. Pedestrian weisse. markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2008
Very good beer. This beer pours a hazy orange-yellow with an aroma that hints strongly of creamed corn. It also smells of citrus, banana, and spices. An excellent wheat beer, this one is very drinkable with lots of spice, banana, and light citrus flavor. The finish is slightly dry with a hint of spice. Good hot day beer, good wheat beer, good beer, period. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2013 Re-rate (7/11/2013): 50cl bottle from Liebick Getränke in Germering. Pours a cloudy orange colored body with an inch thick, dense and foamy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is semi-sweet wheats with a nice banana and citrus element. Some clove spice, yeast, and a touch of caramel. Flavor is similar. Slightly sweet wheats with a touch of caramel, a decent citrus note, lots of banana, a light clove spice throughout, and a bit of a yeastiness. Finishes clean and very lightly bitter before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium, smooth body and a soft, moderately lively carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid hefe. A touch sweet, but lots of citrus and bananas with enough of a spiciness to balance. Good beer (7,4,7,4,14=3.6). Original Rating (7/12/2008). 500ml bottle from Binny’s. Aroma: Very citrusy and strong fruit. Can smell yeast and cascade hops. Very strong sweet smell with no hint of alcohol. Very defined hefeweizen aroma. Appearance: Very very pure orange. Couldn’t see through glass, hazy. Lots of yeast in the pour and glass. Nice pale head with good looking carbonation and didn’t dissipate too quickly. Flavor: Very light, lots of wheat taste. Wheaty. Not very sweet and no alcohol. Palate: Light, smooth, not a very lasting flavor. Overall: Very drinkable. I appreciate the high amount of yeast/wheat taste, but it feels like it needs more. Lacking the sweetness I crave in a hefe (8,5,6,2,11=3.2).

Pours a orange bronze into HB weiss glass.
Flavor leans toward the sweeter banana side. Has a spiced finish. A refreshing smooth Weiss offering. What more can you ask for on a hot Summer day? Damico (3150) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2008
This was excellent for a weisse beer, but a little too subtle in flavor for more. The fact that it is organic is why I definitely bought it at the store, and obviously the fact that it is from Munich - love those purity laws! MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2008
Bottle (500ml). Poured a pale muddy brown with a hint of yellow and a small, rocky, white head which was mostly diminishing. Aroma had strong notes of sour yeasty malts and cloves with some straw, lemon zest, orange citrus, dried banana, coriander and hints of nutmeg. Flavor had strong notes of sour bready malts and cloves with tart lemons, orange citrus (mild), dried banana, coriander, some nutmeg and hints of pear. Well hidden alcohol content. Medium bodied with medium carbonation, a creamy mouthfeel and a good finish. Needed a bit more carbonation. durhambeer (2585) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 1, 2008
500ml bottle. Interesting hazy golden/orange color on this beer with a nice pillowy big white head. Sour yeast, wheat, bananas, coriander and a little clove on the nose. Bigger taste than I expected--seems like a decent amount of malt to back the beer up. Sweet taste in addition to the sour/citric/spice notes. Very solid. pepperford (115) - robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2008
yeasty and alcohol aromas. quite sweet with a bit of banana with the maltiness preventing the taste from getting too out of hand.
