Sehr bananiger Beginn, der in einem dumpfen und bitteren Mittelteil endet. Die Bananigkeit wirkt nun etwas fehl am Platz, Bittere und Süße beißen sich. Zum Ende besser da runder, passende Herbe, dennoch weiter dumpf. Ok. 12/7/8/9//8 Idiosynkrasie (7516) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2012
500ml bottle [5.2% abv as per label]. Cloudy golden colour with average firm frothy minimally lacing white head. Slightly fruity wheaty aroma as decent notes of banana and sweet bread. Soft palate, low carbonated; wheat malt taste takes long to come up with decent apple and peach fruit notes, a spicy note and a touch of bitter hop in the finish. A late bloomer.

Draught at the Stiefel-Jurgens Brewpub in Beckum. Simple, nice hefeweizen. Typical sweetish flavor of banana and clove. Drinkable but not so special. jonas (7573) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2006
Bottle, thanks MoritzF. Cloudy yellow, low head. Banana, Earthy strawberry - seems to be a house flavor (or house infection). Bitter herbal and minerally notes sit heavy on top of more subdued banana and clove notes - bready finish. Dry mouthfeel. Clayish in the aftertaste. pivnizub (10616) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2006
Bottle (many thanks to MoritzF): Orangey coloured, quite firm creamy head; strong fruity nose (apples, peaches, bananas and wheat) sweetish flavour, light to medium bodied; grainy-wheaty finish, slightly sweet, even some hops are detectable. A pleasant Weizen !

(draught at the brewpub) Hazy and cloudy yellow colour with a beautiful stable foamy white head. Slightly sweet wheat-malty aroma with the typical Stiefel-Jürgens yeast (banana, pear), no clovy phenols detectable. Light-sweet flavour, light to medium body, moderate carbonation for a Hefeweizen. Wheat-malty and fruity taste, again with banana and pear; wheaty, yeasty and slightly bitter finish. Pretty drinkable Westphalian Hefeweizen, but all in all not too spectacular (04.06.06).
