UPDATED: JUL 4, 2008 Great Hefe. Pours a nice ornage golden color with a big white fluffy head. The head dissapates quickly into a soapy top. Smells sour and wheaty. Tastes like fresh bread with a bit of meat? Either way really good. TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2007
16.9 oz bottle. Foggy olive orange with a white meringue head. Wet lace. Dough, candied lemon peel and green banana. Tangy carb with a smooth, rounded mouthfeel. Almost like they added some banana puree. Taste echoes the nose with cloves. Ends a little sour and wheaty. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 28, 2007
Draft @ Marlow and Son’s in Brooklyn. Pours orange with a thin bright white head. The nose is fresh and wheaty. The taste is sweet and wheaty, its a nice hef. hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2007
It’s good! cloudy wheat beer with lots of taste and fragrance. had it many time, would have it again and again. germans know how to make their beers. Quake1028 (638) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Bottled. Consumed while watching Beerfest, thought it was appropriate. Pours a brilliant shade of orange, cloudy and full of life from the cabonation. Huge, over two finger thick white head sits atop the beer, and refuses to leave. Yeast, banana, oranges, sweet malts and hops combine to form a brilliant bouquet of aromas. Flavor is a bit of a letdown compared to the aroma, it’s a bit watery. This bottle has been in my fridge for going on 6 months now, and who knows how long it was on the shelf before that, so I won’t knock it too much until I confirm with a fresh sample. Creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied. Finish is sweet malts, yeast and fruit, medium length and satisfying. Nice, but I prefer the Franziskaner version by a good bit.

Hazy golden with a high white head. Fruity banana tones. Some fruit and hops in the taste. Medium body with aslightly sweet finish. High carbonation. AndyHasFins (60) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2007 First time I had had this it was out of the tap at little pub right smack dab on the Rhine River in Germany - and I thought I was drinking liquid gold. Maybe the great memories have given me a bias, but this as become my very favorite Hefeweizen, and one of my favorite beers, period. Everything about it, the color, the naturally sweet aroma and flavor, is perfect. Adding a lemon wedge makes it even better. Weihenstepher is the worlds oldest brewer, so they’ve had plenty of time to get it right. And they have. joohefner (380) - Isla Vista, California, USA - AUG 20, 2007
slightly hazy orangish gold medium white head. has a lemon yeast aroma with banana and cloves in the background. smooth crisp medium body. tastes of acidic bread and cloves. the fruitiness is strong but stays in the back. very crisp and refreshing. silo31 (8) - USA - AUG 19, 2007 does not count
The best Weisse beer I have tasted. Tastes better on tap then in the bottle but still great either way. Goodgrief (2022) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - AUG 17, 2007
An enjoyable wheat. Poured cloudy dark yellow color with HUGE almost out of control head. Aroma is clovey. Flavor is very rich but not overdone clovey/banana flavor with a nice crisp bitter finish. This is up there amongst the many hefe’s I’ve tried.
