UPDATED: FEB 26, 2006 New rating, 2/26/06. Got a fresher bottle this time (best by 1/30/06), so let’s recheck this pup: I can see I was seduced then by malts that get concentrated with age. This one pours a darker gold color, and a bit more haze than in most American iterations of a weizen. Big banana nose at pour, but not much in the glass, just a sprightly wheat character under a fluffy, short-lived head, poured into a 12-oz. weizen glass. Banana comes back in the taste, with mild notes of clove, and a touch of bubble-gum and vanilla. Not quite the heady feeling I get when drinking a properly-presented Hacker-Pschorr, but I think real Hefeweizen fans will enjoy it. <hr>Original rating, 9/28/03: 7-3-7-4-15
Another 3-year-old bottle from my stash, so this is a review of how well it ages, which a weiss is not meant to do.
A slight flowery nose when opened, then pours a dark weiss color, with a little less than standard haziness. The spicy flavor has subsided, leaving the malt to deepen to an almost syrupy richness. Hop flavor is subtle, more to make the alcohol feel a little warmer. Taste is well out of the style profile, but ages to a fine beer nonetheless.

Bottle. Cloudy straw yellow with a very small head for a weiss. Banana, what, grass and medicine. Not impressed by this one....

12 fl.oz. bottle. A almost clear pale golden beer with a small white head. Aroma of banana and phenolic esters, some clove. Taste of clove, mild sweet banana, phenolic esters, nothing special.

Good morning Illinois from Germany! 0,355 l bottle from Beer Supreme, Oldenburg. Murky flat yellow in the glass, small one finger head. A lot of chewing gum and a little bit citrus on the nose. Taste? Not a lot. Also some chewing gum, less caramell, maybe some orange. Watery. Below average.

A superior Hefeweizen. Even better tan the Two Roads version. Equal to the many German ones I have had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz single bottle from Hy Vee Wine & Spirits - Council Bluffs (Madison Ave). Mostly clear, bright orange appearance with a small head. Aroma of wheat, toasted grain, light hops and hints of banana/clove. Similar flavor, adding mild malt sweetness and a touch of hop bitterness. Light bodied and easy to drink overall.

OK but not weiss beer lacks any significant head and is just flat on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. It pours a light golden color as you take in the aroma of bananas. There is a very good banana/wheat taste to it that make for very smooth and easy drinking.

Tap at GABF. Pours a clear orange gold with medium white head that lasts. The aroma is strong floral, banana, clove, yeast. Medium body, clove, banana, light dry finish, good.

hayduke (5677) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Sampled at GABF 2015 and posted my my lasting notes. In the tasting glass cloudy yellow. Nose of banana and clove. Medium body. Flavor is banana, close, and citrus. Finishes drew. To style and good.
