Weizenbier is an outsider (or “Pimock”) in Cologne, as any Bavarian would be. But there is a Rhineland slant to this wheat beer-a Kölsch yeast replaces the traditional weizen one, and an unusually heavy dose of hops is added, resulting in a drier Weisse, with none of the typical banana and clove notes typical of a Bavarian wheat beer.

Schmeckt gar nicht nach einem typischen Weizenbier, aber das soll es ja scheinbar auch gar nicht. Sehr wässrig, bisschen Hefe. Schmeckt wie ein Kölsch-Weizen-Verschnitt.

500 ml bottle labeled Freigeist Pimock poured a hazy amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of wheat, yeast and light spice. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of wheat, yeast and light caramel with a smooth finish.

From the 500 ml. bottle. Orange-yellow pour with modest cream colored head. It fades some. Toasted bread and malts on the nose along with grassy hops. Pretty typical. Light body. Good sweetness in the taste to start and then a vibrant grassy hop finish. It is what you think it will be.

500ml bottle - pours a turbid orange - this certainly takes some getting used to - as the label alludes to, this is not a typical Hefe - more like a German version of a hoppy wheat beer - as usually with this brewer, the texture is quite nice - flavor is mildly sweet orange up front, followed by a light acidity and verybmild banana - moderately bitter hoppiness late, and a touch of pepper in the finish - really not much like a Hefe, but it’s an enjoyable enough beer.

Bottle: Amber orange in color with small white head that dissipated quickly. A light malty and citrus aroma is followed by sweet slightly hoppy taste.

Hier übertreibt man es Gott sei Dank mal nicht mit der Hefe, sondern lässt etwas Hopfen belgischer Art eine Rolle spielen. Daneben ist es fluffig, spritzig, einfach angenehm zu trinken mit einer leichten Fruchtigkeit. Alles ok.

McTapps (6044) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - APR 20, 2015
On tap at the brewpub in Cologne. The beer has got a hazy orange-amber colour with a steady head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of wheat and oranges with some yeasty touch. Taste of yeast, wheat, bread, oranges, fruit salad and flowers. Mild yeasty-sweet flowerish finish. Enjoyed it.

vidmidia (127) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - MAR 14, 2015
Rotulada como Freigeist Pimock. Âmbar escura, turva, quase opaca. Espuma bege abundante de longa duração. Aroma de malte e trigo, com surpreendente nota cítrica. Sabor um pouco amargo e ácido sem notas de banana e cravo. Toques de especiarias e cítricos. Retrogosto curto, ácido, de final amargo.

Pours a dark, cloudy amber with a white head. The aroma is faint, light malt and wheat, with a flavor that is dry malt up front followed by a crisp finish and slightly sweet aftertaste over a light-medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
