Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 7, 2011
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger (disregarding that someone can’t spell Hefeweizen, nor Hefe-Weissbier). Hazy golden colour, moderate white head. Strong and typical h.w.-aroma of ripe bananas, citrus and cloves. High level of carbonation. Refreshing wheaty flavour, banana and cloves again, not very sweet. Noticeable hops in the finish. A decent hefeweizen!

gunnar (7873) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 8, 2011
On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours hazy light golden with a big creamy white head. Good hefe aroma, banana and cloves. Taste is fresh wheat, some yeast and a solid dose of citrussy hops at the end. I like this one, fresh and easy drinkable.

Beer5000 (5900) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 20, 2011
On tap @ Patricks. Hazy yellow golden with a big, creamy white head. Aroma is banana, citrus fruit and cloves. Flavor is very refreshing and typical hefe-weissbier, not too sweet, high carbonation and good balance. The only thing I would put my finger on here, is a bit thin body. Close to perfection within the style.

KnutAlbert (6710) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2011
On tap. Sweet banana, soft wheat mouth feel, a hint of citrus. Some grassy hops, too. True to style, pleasant refreshment.

larsga (7293) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2011
Big offwhite lasting head. Hazy yellow body with light carbonation. Dusty wheaty banana aroma with yoghurty notes. Very clean and harmonic. Dry-sweet milky mealy banana taste with fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish yoghurty grainy banana aftertaste with floral metallic notes. Outstanding. Extremely drinkable. (0.5l draft at Amundsen, Oslo.)

MartinT (9319) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Tons of wheat flavor in this Hefeweizen, while bananas, citrus zest and herbal hops complete this flavorful pint.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A white sheet of foam tops the cloudy beige.
-This is very flavorful and rich for a Weizen, which might lessen drinkability a bit.
-The second half of each sip is hoppy and bitter.
-This could be more refined.

On tap at their stave-like bar.

esp0r (2729) - NORWAY - MAY 4, 2011
Tap at Amundsen. Golden hazy, creamy thick white head. Aroma of banana, yeast and hints of citrus. Taste is fresh with some malts and lots of banana. Some acids and sweetness balance the body well. Finish is not hoppy or bitter. Good beer indeed
