3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl Bottle from Vomar Noordwijk. Brewed for Benediktiner Weissbräu in Ettal, by Licher, so my bottle says. Hazy golden orange colour, dense off-white head. Aroma of sweet banana, clove, yeast, wheat, typical Hefeweizen fare. Flavour is medium-sweet, spicy, clove, banana, some light-refreshing wheat, light-bitter finish. Light-bodied, firm carbonation. Decent Weizen.

Bottle - this is a might fine looking beer - effervescent body - thick, creamy, lasting head - the rest doesn’t match, but isn’t bad - a little thin on the palate - a bit of bubblegum - a little sweet, overripe bananas, apples - a light acidity - a little bit of spiciness in the finish - lacks the depth of character you want from the style, but okay.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
11.2oz bottle. Cloudy orange body. Massive foamy white head. Not such an impressive aroma, not such an impressive taste. Drinkable, but this is one of the easiest styles out there. Tastes like a sub-par brewpub example, not exactly what you’d expect from a German. Some buttery sweet caramel tones underneath. Not one I’d go back for more of.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
The first new weiss I have had in a long time that is worth talking about. This is a quality, classic German Hefeweizen. Beautiful beer, with a tall white head, and different shades of orange color, it looks like egg yolk when the last swirl with sediment goes in. Aroma has wheat and light fruit. Sweet flavor, with more wheat, some citrus, and banana. This is good. Thick palate.

0.5 l bottle at Tuulensuu, Tampere. Hazy yellow brown color. Very tart aroma with ripe fruits, clove, pepper and vanilla. Dry bready and tart flavor with overripe fruits. A bit different weizen, not bad.
