On tap at Happy Pizza Kitchen in Munich. I am rating my very first encounter with this beer, and subsequent run-ins have been stateside bottles and do not live up to the first few pints of this I had. Unbelievable smoothness and almost a fruity yeast taste. Very effervescent texture, notes of mellow banana and appley-clove. Just outstanding when I had it first. blutt59 (6585) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2008

Taste: Pretty wheaty, hopsy. Fizzy.
Info: 500ml bottle, 24/1-2006, 65/300, 41/500
Fizzy golden w/ huge pale head. Strongly wheaty nose, raw banana, clove, yeast. Flavor is quite spritzy, wheat, peppery spices, a hint of alcohol. This bottle was surprisingly low on fruitiness. Medium bodied, slick palate. It’s a good weisse, but I’ll go with Ayinger.

Alot sweeter than most hefes, but this leaves nothing to be desired. Its a very deep taste that changes as it sits in your mouth. Less sweet finish. Not too lemony, which is very refreshing. Petrucci914 (921) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Pours a cloudly yellow/gold color. Aroma is very yeasty with banana, clove, and a hint of bubble gum. Taste is the same, with a metallic and flat finish. Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2008
Not my favourite style, but very nice indeed. durhambeer (2585) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Aroma is yeasty with just a hint of banana and clove. taste is strong for the style and the aftertaste lingers pleasantly.
"The World’s Oldest Brewery" seems to have perfected this style.
Bottle. Lovely cloudy light golden pour with a nice bubbly and lasting head. Bananas, yeast, clove on the nose. A little citrus. Very bright and flavorful. This is such a standard Hefe it’s almost hard to describe... it’s exactly what a Hefeweizen should be. A classic. Imperial-John (192) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2010 500ml bottle from LCBO in Ontario. Pale cloudy yellow with big foamy white head. Yeasty banana aroma. Very buttery smooth, carbonated, mild yeast, wheat, banana taste.
