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.

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.

500 ml bottle from AM PM downstairs. Almost banana aroma. Banana. Yeasty. Orange like body. Ok.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours crystal clear amber, medium puffy beige head, nice lacing. Aroma is wheat, cardboard, grass, grain. Flavor is the same, light sweet, minimal bitterness, light lemon. Medium body, high carbonation. Meh.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: Draft at Reichenbach Hall, 9/12/14
Aroma: The nose wheat and malts, sweet, fruity, some banana, a bit of spice
Appearance: This one pours an orange color with a decent sized creamy off-white head
Flavor: The flavor follows suit with the nose, sweet malts and wheat, a little spice
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a decent mouthfeel, and a plus carbonation
This one is fairly unexciting. It’s just fine I guess, nothing much beyond that. You could certainly do worse...

Bottle from Rema tooooosand!, Copenhagen - golden pour with good sized white head. Aroma and taste is medium sweet fruity and wheaty, some distinct banana, a splash of spices on the palate, easy drinking and decent brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle from Oliver’s Beverage Center. Date on bottle neck reads 3/29/2013. After opening and drinking I’m sure that is a best before date. That being said, it was still real decent. Darker than normal Weiss color, real hazy amber with lasting head. Malty caramel with light yeast esters. Effervescent body with semi-sweet banana and light clove. I would love to re-rate and find this on draft. A maltier example of a style I love.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle @Kitty´s. Poured hazy and dark orange with a frothy white head. Aroma was fruity, apricot came to mind, also wheat and yeast. Flavor had banana, wheat, clove and sweet fruits. Way too sweet to be really enjoyable. Aroma was nice.
