COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With its amber-mahogany coloring and streaked with fine top-fermented yeast, this beer has a fine, persistent head that adheres well to the glass. It is pleasantly fruity with a typical top-fermented smell, an aroma of clove and nutmeg apple tantalizes the nose. On the tongue it is fresh, clean, full-bodied, harmonious and well-balanced. It finishes with a light, delicate taste of bitters leaving behind a sour impression.

Bobsy (194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2007 Bottle conditioned and courtesy of the LCBO. Burnished copper appearance, with a frothy white head. Wheat and banana in the aroma. Lovely fresh wheat taste in a flavour accented with spices and yeastiness. Crisp finish and refreshing.

BelgianBeerGal (4136) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2007
UPDATED: APR 4, 2015 50cL bottle. Pours a dark, hazy amber color, darker than most hefes. Still has some citrus and banana in the aroma and flavor. Well done.

Orange/coper colored, clearer and darker than most hefes with GREAT, lasting head. Wheaty, vanilla, banana yeasty apple scents appear and are overshadowing a subtle spice aroma. NIce and soft to taste with a balanced, banana wheat body featuring a apple souring crispness towards the finish. While this beer doesn’t look like most Hefeweizens I have had, it fits the style well and presents a drinkable and balanced example of the style.

JoeinDahlem (1595) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2007
A gorgeous, hazy orange with a fairly big, fruity-yeasty nose. Just a little sweet, with cereal and bubble gum aspects. Chewy but refreshing and tasty.

My new favourite Wheat Beer. Amber with a large white head. Smells of cloves, fruits and hops. Tastes of cloves, nutmeg, citrus and bananas. Lightly carbonated, but surprisingly smooth and well balanced. Recommended!

obguthr (6586) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Aroma is moderately strong cloves and sweet cream. Muddy ochre color, extremely thick white head. Very good balance of sweet and tart banana, slightly meaty at mid palate. Weak finish. Good, but I expected more.

Amazing wheat beer. Thicky and creamy. Gorgeous aroma of flowers (elderberry?), vanilla, wheat and honey. Medium body; very smooth. Reminds me of a Paulaner Heffe. What wheat beers should aspire to be.

[Sampled in 2004.] Should be a hefe of high quality, but thisone had too much carbonation, then it got some bad notes. But it deserves a rerating later.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2008 Poured from bottle into Weizen glass. Thick head, inviting clove aroma. The full mouthfeel of the wheat and the carbonation with my salad was quite refreshing and quenching. After having this a few times over the months, this beer does have a darker and "dirtier" feel than a Weihenstephaner and has a hint more of a diluted flavor. I prefer the Weihenstephaner Hefeweisen. But this is still a very good weissbier.
