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.

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 (5363) - 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 (70) - 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

Tognetta (218) - Campinas, BRAZIL - FEB 16, 2015
Aroma de cravo, malte mais presente que a maioria das weiss. Paladar mais amargo q o esperado. Aftertaste levemente ácido e amadeirado. Bem diferente das weiss tradicionais.

Bottle: (as Freigeist Pimock) Cloudy, orange, with a huge beige head. Banana, old wheat, semi-oxidized aroma. Taste is a bit of stale bread, banana, wheat. Slightly sweet....overall, rather dull and unappealing.

Satyroneto (202) - BRAZIL - NOV 10, 2014
Freigeist Pimock Cor marrom (parece suco de tamarindo) e completamente turva; espuma também marrom de alta formação e alta persistência e quase sem lacing; Aroma herbal e com o aumento da temperatura se evidência pão-doce e biscoito; não há notas frustadas como nas weizens tradicionais; Sabor de início gramíneo que evolui para um meio levemente ácido e tem final amargo comportado, mas mais intenso do que uma Weizen tradicional; retrogosto amargo e seco; Corpo leve e baixa carbonatação.

500ml bottle, from Kahn’s Keystone, off the top part of a shelf. Labeled Freigeist Pimock Rhineland Weizen. Cloudy darker orange color. Bigger kind of khaki head. Good ridges of lace. Musty, kind of metallic nose. Some dark fruit, mild paper and oxidization, metallic. Probably an old bottle, who knows how long it’s been sitting on that shelf for. Not much bavarian hefe flavor, just kind of mild and musty. Some wheat, mild spice, very mild hefe banana type flavors, more just must, mild paper, and some metallic. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation, with a good full feel. Aside from the lacking flavor, everything else about this is pretty nice. Probably a victim of it’s environment, a common problem with these imports that could be easily alleviated if these breweries would just print a bottling date. Of course, the importer and distributor would not like that...
