Tim Webb (225) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2012
500 ml bottle in Straubing, Bavaria. Disappointingly simple, a bit thin, no great presence of banana, clove or anything else for that matter. Thirst quenching in a way that made it unnecessary to have another.

An ok cheap beer from lidel. Too flowery taste for my liking but still enjoyable. Similar but not as nice as erdinger

Very weak, watery texture and taste. Unmemorable. Tasted on tap at Brooklyn Waterfront Beer Festival, 6/16/2012.

flying_pig (834) - SCOTLAND - MAY 31, 2012
Bottle (500ml from Aldi Supermarket):
Citrus and some orange zest on the nose along with some lemon and coriander. I also got a whiff of some spice but naturally it was the banana that made up most of the smell.
Cloudy yellow to light orange colour with a thumb sized,foamy white head taht is on the small side for a hefeweizen and settles to a thin, soapy lacing.
Banana with clove and light coriander. I detected some light citrus notes such as lemon and orange with some background spice in there too.
Smooth and with a fizzy tang to it and strong carbonation. There was also a lingering bitterness at the end to go with the overall sweetness of the beer.

A nice beer and one that I drank fairly easily although I wouldn’t rate it as a particulary good beer or hefeweizen for that matter. It was quite basic for the style and perhaps a little strong on the citrus. Drinkable though.

Sensei_Tohru (32) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2012
This wheatbeer has a lovely, cloudy, straw hue; with the smell of wheat, and fingerberry (banana). The smatch (taste) is sweet followed by a lingering yeastiness. Overall I have had better Dutchlandish wheatbeers, but this was more than likeworthy.

Lowenbrau (1734) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 16, 2012
500ml bottle. Average weissbier, lacking some more flavour. Pale gold, hazy, cereal aromas. Medium body and average carbonation. Short finish.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2012
From the UK Aldi chain: Arcobrau Weissbier Hell. 500ml bottle, best before 1st March 2013: poured into a Franziskaner Weissbier glass 9th May 2012. Looks every bit the ideal hefeweizen: cloudy with a deep, full white head: mid-range orange/lemon hue to the colour, just like the best of this style. Wheat aroma with mild traces of vanilla and banana: I prefer fuller smells in this style of beer. Refeshing but lacking in flavour: the first sip told me this was a cheap option. Weak body and taste: below average in all aspects bar the looks.

Martin243 (697) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2012
500 ml bottle served cold in a chalice. Pours a murky dark yellow with a large off white head. Absolutely typical weissbier aroma and flavour - bananas, cloves and bubble gum. Creamy mouth feel. Distinguished by a slightly drier, spicier finish than some other weissbiers I’ve had. Nice.

5.3% cloudy cold colour with a good head, slightly smoky banana aroma and a classic wheat beer taste.

Bottle at yespr. Hazy golden coloured with a small white head. Fruity aroma of caramel and bananas with notes of spices. Fruity flavour of bananas and spices. Spicy finish.
