500 mL bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy golden blonde, with a thick head, most of which dissipates quickly. Aroma is a spicy, Belgian-like yeast. The flavor starts out with a strong yeastiness, with notes of citrus and spice. Slight aftertaste of wheat. Very nice mouthfeel. Not really my style of beer, but excellent for what it is. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2008
[1504-20080701] 500mL bottle. Sweet grainy banana malt aroma has a hint of cotton candy. Hazy, orange brown body with a long-lasting foamy white head. Sweet grainy banana continues in the flavour with a nice base of toasted French bread. Medium body is smooth. A touch under-carbonated but lovely still, despite its lacking fizz factor. mcox90 (2088) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 10, 2008
500ml bottle. Pours a cloudy golden color with a fluffy white head and nice white lacing. Nose was spicey & banannas. Flavor was a refreshing mix of spicey cloves and wheaty grains. Also, the usual bananna flavor. I have not had a lot of hefes, but I thought this one was awesome. jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2008
Enjoyed this. Large head, course bubble size. Very sweet aroma and flavour. Typical cloudy look. Supposed to be the ’standard’ for this style - can’t argue! twitcher (298) - framingham, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 9, 2008
bottle. A relatively gentle pour into a hefe glass still yields a huge, 3+ inch fluffy white head. Aromas of banana, some yeast grain, and hints of clove spice. Flavor shows great balance- mild spicy bitterness, banana sweetness, some mixed spices with cloves in the front, and a smooth bready sweetness. Palate is crisp and clean, plenty of flavor, with a clean and clear finish. Overall- a downright superb hefeweizen.

The best example of a German Weizen. Hazy pale yellow, big white fluffy head. Thick aroma of banana, yeast, wheat and some spice. Subtle flavour of wheat, banana, little hint of citrus. Very refreshing, prickly and creamy mouthfeel. senads (2) - Natick, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 7, 2008 does not count
Looks good in the glass, has a nice fluffy head, new it was a wheat just looking at it, definitely smell and taste yeast, finishes with a nice taste. Wim (3980) - Weelde, BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2008
hazy gold blond coloured body with a white head a herby fruity aroma a fruity herby taste with a fruity bitter finish GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Pours a bright, slightly hazy yellow with a big puffy white head that lingers throughout the session leaving bits of lacing. There is also a constant stream of bubbles coming to the top. Smell is wonderful with cloves, banana and sweet wheat. Hint of citrus in the nose as well, mainly lemons. Taste is absolutely perfect for a hefe with an initial citrus burst followed by a massive sweet wheat taste full of bananas and spices. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and unbelievably creamy for a hefe with tons of carbonation. The drinkability couldn’t be higher on this and it is the definitive example of a hefeweizen as far as I’m concerned. There is no better summer beer on earth.

Hazy yellow coloured beer with some light carbonation and a small white head. Herby and fruity, wheat aroma. Full spicy palate. Finish is bitter fruity, with some herby touches. Nice weissen.
