(funny)never heard of this bier & it took a paris bottle shop for me to notice. all the standard flavors are here but add other fruits to the usually only banana flavor...maybe making it a type of dessert weissbier!

Fatehunter (2274) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Poured two fingers of thick, foamy head on a hazy, dark straw colored body. The aroma is mostly caramel. It’s nice, if one-sided. The taste is sweet caramel, dry grain and lemon bitter at the end. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Enjoyable.

RexTalionis (3522) - FINLAND - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle 50 cl, BBE 26.09.2014. Pours hazy golden in color with a creamy whitish head. Ripe forrest berries, banana and sour wheat in aroma. Notes of wheat, banana fruityness and butterscotch sweetness in taste. Isn’t overly sweet though, just about the right amount here. Feels quite smooth too. Solid hefeweissbier. Sweetish banana notes and slightly burnt toffee in aftertaste.

Marstonlad (768) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2014
A color of dark amber with a big, rocky white head - a handsome appearance. Aroma is very typical for a wheat beer: it has wheatish maltiness, cloves and some banana. Taste is sweetish and also light sour. Banana is not very strong but noticeable. Round and quite smooth maltiness fills the mouth when drinking; the body is medium in strength, the carbonation soft. The palate displays the difference between proper wheat beers like this and their lighter counterparts. No surprises here but enjoyable to drink anyway.

With dark golden colour and amazing white foam this is one really good wheat beer. No special aroma, but very nice taste and easy drinkable.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2016 Typical Weizen brewed by Licher for Klosterbrauerei Ettal. Tasted young years ago, now from a somewhat older bottle for re-rating. Looks fantastic in a Hefeweizen ’vase’: vanilla ice cream-like, rocky, foamy, thick, dense head on top of a deep, warm orange blonde beer with ochre hue, a tad darker than usual for the style, equally misty with whole ’columns’ of fizz piercing through - a stunning sight, as it should be for this style. Aroma yields a lot of the expected ’mashed banana’ and cloves, the hallmarks of a Hefeweizen bouquet, with the banana slightly dominating; other impressions include (obviously) strong soapy wheat, ripe peach, some subtle candied lemon, chamomille, apple cake, gingerbread, some ’natural’ iron, dry earth and some vague, onsetting oxidation, but not (yet) disturbing at all. Soft fruity onset, banana, red apple, peach and some gooseberry, sweetish with sourish undercurrent which becomes more pronounced as the palate progresses and the soapy, softly sourish wheatiness develops, well balanced with a bready, very lightly caramelly barley malt sweetness; carbonation is spritzy but not coarse, mouthfeel is supple and smooth. Retronasal clove-like phenols, banana ester and very mild oxidation show up in the end along with a very subtle whiff of soft, floral hops, which provide some background structure in the finish, though they remain almost completely hidden and it is the wheat soapiness and barley ’breadiness’ that go down into the throat, with that soft, subtle sourish accent providing some drought against these sweetish, juicy grains. I love a good Hefeweizen every now and then, I love their looks, and I love how refreshing and juicy they can be when they are well made; this one delivers. Stereotypical alright, but so are many German beers, and then it comes down to finesse, detail and craft to distinguish between the above average ones and the below average ones in each style. This, to me at least, is slightly above average.
