2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is fruity-orangy, yeasty. No bananas. Taste is again oranges and spicy yeasts. Surprisingly crisp mouthfeel. Not bad, but not a Hefeweizen...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle into weizen glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, light banana/clove/pepper, wheat, toasted biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/floral hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, light banana/clove/pepper, wheat, toasted biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness and wheat tangon the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, light banana/clove/pepper, wheat, toasted biscuit, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice robustness, complexity, and balance of citrus/floral hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good and unique hefeweizen style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of citrus/floral hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. Even with the use of Kolsch yeast, you still a nice amount of flavor complexity and balance; with subtle banana/clove notes due to the wheat malts. A very enjoyable offering.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2016 Leckeres und sehr erfrischendes rheinisches Weizen.
Viel Weizen, Getreide, leicht hopfig. Dazu ein sehr "kölscher" Nachtrunk. Lecker!

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
