BlackHaddock (3503) - 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 (742) - 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.

Maria (10129) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2012
It’s unclear golden with a huge, creamy, white head. The aroma is mild but with distinct notes of banana, yeast and wheat. The sweet flavor is packed with banana notes - yummi, I also find yeast and wheat. It’s both mild and very full-bodied at the same time. The finish is slightly dry and spicy.
