    Pours an almost neon yellow that is fairly clear. Massive head that takes its time. Aroma is yeasty and sour with hints of fruit. Taste is fairly watered down and not that flavorful. Some cloves with the yeast. Slightly spiced and creamy ending. Not very good.

    This is my all time FAV Hefe. I used to drink this daily in Wurzburg Germany. Gorgeous color, makes me all tingley inside. Pronounced bannana, and cloves. Try it for yourself, and see. LOVE this BEER!!! As with most hefe's, tastes better, a little warmer than most styles, right out of the fridge.!

    Bottled (as Julius Echter Hefe-Weissbier Hell, 5.3 %). Hazy yellow colour, mediumsized white foamy head. Aroma is wheat, banana, some nutmeg, toffee and mild citrus fruity notes. Flavour is toffee, some grains, mild nutmeg, mild citrus as well as quite much yeasty notes. Big time toffeeish and wheaty notes.

    Sampled on 7/12/2011. This hefe-weizen pours a slightly hazy orange gold color from a 500ml bottle. Small to medium sized dense foamy white head, with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is banana and glove, fruity and sweet. Some cereal and grain. A light to medium bodied Hefeweizen. The malts are fruity and sweet, grainy and cereal with lots of banana and clove flavors. The hope are herbal and slightly spicy. Decent carbonation. A touch on the sweet side with lots of banana and clove flavors. Easy drinking. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

    On tap at Coopers. Nice lemon and banana aroma. Rich yellow color. Thick white head. Good persistent lacing. Well carbonated; spritzy mouthfeel. Muted flavors of yeast, bread, spice, citrus, banana. Solid but nothing exceptional, or Premium, here. MUSIC: "Fire it Up" - Modest Mouse.

    This is an interesting one. Paired it with a salad and cheese platter. Nice cloudy golden color and a very robust, large fluffy white head. Good hang time settling into nice lacing. The aroma, subtle as it is, is bananas. The carbomation adds character to beer that adds to it’s drinkability. There is a smoothness. And the taste? The taste s bananas, some spice and some sweet malt. Refreshing drink worth a try.

    What a let down. Bavarin and I knew it would be rightous. NOT. Not even close to a good hefe. I am so very sad :( I was really looking forward to a really great beer :(

    Looked like a hefe, nice cloudy mid yellow body, not much carbonation but it left a little lace on my glass. The rest was un hefe like, hardly any regular aromas or flavorings, only a strange aftertaste. I think I got a bad one, so I might re-try this one day, but not soon.

    This beer is quite murky and has an orange tinged, light amber color when held up to the light. It is topped by a frothy, initially three-finger thick, pale tan colored head that leaves lacing on the sides of my tulip glass. This has a bright, fruity aroma of bananas, some pear notes and apples as well as a touch of clove phenolics. Actually the aroma really has quite a lot of the fruity esters of the apple / pear variety; this is almost the dominant aromatic note. Touches of grassy grain, crushed pale malt and tart, aromatic wheat notes are noticeable if you dig around for them. Perhaps a hint of herbal hops is all that is noticeable of the hop contribution.

    The flavor is fairly light, but does have a certain heft to it that adds some chewiness / viscosity to the brew. Lightly sweet tasting, which accents / is accentuated by an apple and pear like fruitiness. The finish has a nice, spicy clove character to it and as the beer warms up a bit, typical banana flavors become evident. This has a nice tartness to it that makes it quite an appetizing brew; it seems to offset the grain sweetness and play up some of the fruit notes too. A yeast dump yields a softer, perhaps more chewy mouthfeel as well as contributing some bread-like yeast notes. It also seems to soften the fruit impact a bit too.

    Much fruitier than your typical Hefe Weizen, but still it is quite tasty and I like the apple / pear notes that are in this beer. This would pair quite well with the traditional Bavarian breakfast of Weisswurst. What I like about this beer is the balance that it strikes between banana, apple/pear, light grain notes, tartness and spicy clove in the finish. This is quite an appetizing beer, even if I am a sucker for Hefe Weizens.

    Not the best tasting hefeweizen I ever had. It did not have the banana, clove or bubblegum flavors that are the norm for a German hefeweizen. The only thing that reminded me of a hefeweizen was the cloudy, pale yellow colored body. Other than that it did not have any characteristics of a hefeweizen.
