A nice twist on the traditional German style Hefeweizen. Its slightly darkened to a medium brown color, with very nice attributes; good head formation, retention, and lacing. The aromas of banana, clove, and wheat is good. The taste also carries a nice little note of burnt toast on the finish. Would be much, much better if it were slightly thicker, viscous, and more full bodied. Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - OCT 23, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2008 This is a fairly dark, full-bodied hefewiezen that I reall like for its richer interpretation of the style, making it closer to the darker ales that I prefer. It is a dark, cloudy amber with a thick, long-lasting off-white head with some lacing. The aroma is fruity. The flavour is sweetish yet crisp, with a distinct taste of wheat bread, some fruitiness, and a finish that is very bready mixed with spices. It is smooth and tasty, with a pleasant tingly, yet full, feel. Skinnyviking (9584) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2007
Bottle. Very high and long lasting off-white creamy head. Hazy amber body with a good deal of yeast sediments. Distinct banana aroma. Sweet and relatively thin flavor with low carbonation and long aftertaste-. BossHossBikes (148) - California, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Pours a semi-cloudy brown with an abundant pale head. This is a little darker than typical hefe weizens. The aroma is very citrusy. Oranges, bananas, and cloves seem to be pretty dominating with bread notes hiding behind. The flavour, when colder, seems to be more bread-like. As it warms, the oranges and lemon become more dominant. Bananas and cloves burst in the finish. This is pretty good. Matty8251 (5) - Oak Harbor, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2007 does not count
Bottle: pour starts nice with big bubbles and a stark white big head. Bannana, clove and bubble gum flavors and smells. Just a tad dark for a Hef but a nice beer all around.

16 oz in a .5 L weizen glass. Darker than the other hefe’s I’ve been drinking. Nice and cloudy, big frothy white head that settles down to a thin line. A lot more carbonated than, say, a Paulaner. Fizzy. Nice. Not so sweet and banana (in my estimation) more malty than fruity. A rich, tasty beer. I prefer the more banana and sweet smelling hefe’s like a Fransizkaner, but this one is nice, and I’ll buy (and drink) more. Gpnterojd (179) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2007
Pours orangey amber, with a great steamed milk head. Attractive effervescence. Aroma is strongly of bananas with a little yeast and nutmeg. Flavour is also strong on bananas and yeast. Well balanced spices and clove round out the flavour. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 8, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2009 One of the better-looking hefeweizens, the head is exceptional. Muddy-colored, opaque from ample yeast sediments. Fruity and spicy aroma, imparted by the creamy head. Initial taste is heavy on the citrus: with orange, lemon and also fennel detectable. Nice beer: don’t serve it too cold!joohefner (380) - Isla Vista, California, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Draft at Weissbrauhaus, munich. Dark hazy orange-brown with white head. Is really good. Smooth carbonation. The tap version of this is great! The banana is more apparent than in the helles weizen. The body is big with a great palate. World class gold standard. 4-6-5-8-16
cloudy amber gold with large frothy head. very traditional wheat flavors and aromas. fruit is more pronounced than cloves, and apple is a little more than in most wheats. traditional and a great example of the style wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Amber pour with a steady head. Aroma is of typical bananas. Flavor is the same with some nice bready maltiness. Very easy to drink.
