Review according to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15A). Draft version from 5L keg. AROMA: very low wheat aroma with a somewhat sweet mixed aroma. no esters, phenols or hop aromas. APPEARANCE: dark golden color with orange tint. no haze with long lasting white head. TASTE: very low watery wheat flavour. some residual sweet flavor present maybe due to adjuncts. no phenols or esters. no hop flavour. PALATE: thin body with medium to high carbonation. watery sensation maybe due to draft version. OVERALL: a poor, watery weissbier with sweet after-taste maybe due to problems with the keg.

Mitäänsanomaton vehnä, ei millään tavalla innosta. Laimean tunkkainen. Puolikämänen. Kylmempi pitäis olla.

Pour from bottle, amble in color with adequate head, liquid is rather lively. Smell citrus and taste caramel with little aftertaste. Another typical German wheat beer.

ciaranc (706) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 6, 2014
500ml bottle. Crystal clear pale amber, huge rich foamy slightly off white head. Grainy nose, smoe floral and perfume notes, alittle yeasty spice. Flavour is sweet malt, touches of banana. Light, not overly fizzy. Short finish with touches of clove. Not overly complex but enjoyable all the same.

Bue à la pression. Couleur ambrée. Pas grand chose au nez, notes classiques de bière blanche avec une finale légèrement sucrée. Très agréable.

Sigmund (4809) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2014
500 ml bottle, bought in Denmark, probably at Voldby Købmandsgaard. ABV is 5.4%. BB date 20.07.13. Hazy orange colour, large white head. Smells a bit "off", sweetish notes of malts and caramel, only hints of banana and cloves. The flavour is somewhat better, malty character, not too sweet, but again the typical hefeweizen notes of "banana & cloves" are very subdued. Lacks some of the "freshness" of a better hefeweizen, Might buy a fresher bottle at another occasion, to re-rate.

So long since I’ve had a real weizen. Nice pillowy head, grain aroma, slightly sweet, taste is light on the normal banana and bubblegum, but still fairly chewy. Fine sediment added via the bottle swirl, makes for a slightly cloudy beer. Good, but not the best.

Beer4000 (4313) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2014
Sampled at VANØ annual meeting 2014. Slightly unclear golden body with a huge, foamy white head that stays. Aroma is a bit weak but standard weissbier. Banana, bubblegum, cloves and slightly citric. Same goes for the flavor. Typical weissbier, but a bit weak and rather uninteresting. Medium body and average to slightly short aftertaste. Totally drinkable, simple, straight forward weissbier.

A bit too much a "water" taste"... But not disgusting... I have to try an other time...

Bottle, pours a cloudy golden color with a white head. Light malt taste with some citrus and banana notes. Not bad but there are better ones.
