COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This coarse filtered wheat ale is fermented with a German yeast culture for a refreshingly light spiciness and hints of citrus fruit. A cloudy appearance and an immense creamy head are characteristic of this lightly hopped Bavarian brew.

Poured from the bottle into a standard pint glass, and was not prepared for the extra four ounces, so I took my first few sips before I was ready. Cloudy, and light yellow, the pour produced little to no head (though to be fair, the beer was cold.) The aroma of this weisse is in keeping with the style, with strong notes of citrus and banana. The carbonation is good and not overbearing. Taste-wise, Sprecher has produced a bitter beer with medium sourness, with a medium body. There is a slight spiciness that can be tasted on the back end of the brew, which lends some complexity, though a strong metallic taste at the forefront diminishes the experience.

On tap at Hop City in Birmingham, AL. Pours a hazy yellow color, good carbonation. Typical wheat and orange smell. First Sprecher I've tried, and it's a good hefe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16oz, Sprecher bottle, twist-off. Hazy, golden yellow color, white head. Sweet, mature banana scent. Light tastes of fresh wheat. Airy body. Great for summer. Not like any Hefe Ive had. Very good, well made. It is obvious its made to taste good. (3595)

Pours a cloudy yellow amber color with a mild scent of wheat. Has an almost organic like wheat and grain taste to it which is rather bold along with firm hints of orange. Rather filling and heavy in comparison to many hefeweizen beers. Definitely a good taste here, the only complaint I could really see anyone making is about the thicker volume the beer has.

Pours a gold straw color with a thick white head. Bready yeast aroma. Tart wheat cereal flavor. Slight carbonic bite. Very enjoyable beer.

Pretty typical hefeweizen, nose of bananas, citrus and wheat notes, maybe a little thinner than your typical hefeweizen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light yellow pour with strong white, foamy head. Aroma of yeast, grassy-hay and spicy notes, citrus. Taste is sour-spice with a little bitter at the end.

kerenmk (4664) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle, BOTM club. Pours murky amber with a white foam ring. Bubblegum, ripe fruit aroma. Really spicy and a little too bitter for hefe. Medium-to-full body, thick texture, yeasty aftertaste. Didnt really like it.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - NOV 30, 2012
A slightly cloudy yellow body with a nice white head that had nice retention and good lacing. A strong spice note on the aroma and although aroma was pretty strong there was an off-putting aroma to it. Somewhat dirty! Flavor had some nice citrus notes to it, but they did seem to overshadow the wheat notes. A nice mouth feel, but I could not get over the aroma.
