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.

Aroma - aroma is dominated by caramel and wheat. Not typical of what I’ve had, but again pleasing. Appearance - body is a caramel colored amber, with a head that is about 2" inches high and white. It settles down to a nice slice. Taste - the taste is very pleasing, but ventures into the Bitter category a bit. It’s biggest flavor is caramel, then some light hops. Wheat of course. Not really that bubblegum/banana that you get with some Hefe’s, but tasty nonetheless. Palate - body is between light and medium; texture is only can be descriped as creamy, but not in a stout way; carbonation is soft; the finish full of a sweet caramel. Really enjoyable, but non-conformist Hefe. It’s more like some Bitters I’ve had then Hefe’s I’ve had. Either way it’s fun.

Gerbeer (2162) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 3, 2014
500ml bottle. Labelled as Freigeist Pimock. Pours a clear mahogany with moderate head and lots of carbonation. Aromas of brown sugar, plastic, dried fruit, and floral wheat. Flavors of bitter dried fruit/marmalade, bananas, resin, and light spice. Not much of a fan.

TheJestersBeer (2188) - SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2014
500ml bottle, as Freigeist Pimock. Pours a cloudy medium amber, with a white head. Malty, spicy, slightly phenolic aroma, hops, citrus, cloves. Dry, light to medium bodied, low bitterness, creamy CO2. Malty, spicy taste, phenols, caramel, hops, cloves, yeast, butterscotch. Decent, quite drinkable, a nice twist compared to the usual hefeweizen. (2014-01-06)

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 (4716) - 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

Tap at the brewpub. Hazy golden to amber color, creamy white head. Aroma is banana, bread, malt and floral/fruity notes. Taste starts sweet, notes of malt and banana dominate. Medium body.

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.
