COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Really liked this one because it’s so unique. A big hoppy bitter sour Hefe. Not for everyone for sure. oh yeah amazing orange color. Matches the label.

Sampled draft @ Braustelle. Hazy orange with a creamy white head. Nose is pretty hoppy (interesting for a Hefe) plus some sweet oranges, fruity, touch sugar, rich wheat & touch bread. Taste is bitter grass, herbal, orange, sweet & fruity, rich malt, touch sweetness, light hops. Creamy body, easy to drink. Pretty interesting & unusual hybrid brew of sort. Once again, I think the low scores on here are the result of infected bottles. Fresh & on draft, this is quite a nice brew.

Erzengel (3554) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2013
Rating from 2008: Schön orange-trübe Farbe. Der Antrunk ist sehr fruchtig-süßlich, wie bei einem Mischgetränk. Hat etwas von Erdbeer oder Himbeer. Die Hefe kommt auch leicht zur Geltung und wir im Mittelteil etwas intensiver! Sehr süffig und angenehm süß.
→ Interessantes Weizen, bei dem sich die Fruchtaromen noch lang auf der Zunge halten. --> 12+12+11+11

medfordmh (25) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Drank from a bottle as "pimock". A: clove, minerals, musty, slight banana, pepper, slight fruitiness honeydew maybe. A: deep tan almost ruby colored. Quickly dissipating white head with large bubbles. T: clove, minerals, pepper, cerael, slight banana, with a bitter earthy back and a carbonic bite. P: very light in body for a weizen. Lots of carbonation and bitterness to leave your tounge dry. 0: as a weizen It’s weird, but its supposed to be. Definitely not the norm. Intresting beer

KyotoLefty (6739) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 8, 2013
Draught at Braustelle. Bighy, dark orange, glowing, cloudy, with a fine, low head. Nose of bread, wheat, oranges, grass. Flavor of wheat malt, citrus hops, bread, oranges. A hybrid of a weizen and an American wheat. Interesting and good. Very malty and rich but clean. Weizen body and malt, but are they using US hops and yeast? No banana or clove.

Slipstream (2076) - USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle, called Freigeist Pimock Rhineland Weizen. Furit and bread aroma, with cherry, apricot, and muffin. Cloudy brown pour, and another cool-looking Freigeist label. A pretty fruity weisse, with apricot and pineapple flavors. Light, but good.
