3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught@Braustelle, 13/02/2014. In line with their naturtrübes Helios, 21st century update of the Kölsch, an extra hopped dry Hefe with hop (?Tettnang and Hallertau?) spice instead of banana/clove. Creamy but sessionable palate, firm and chewy dry pale malts and more of a Keller yeast fruitiness than Weizen make this into a welcome NorthWestern crossover addition to partly worn SouthEastern traditions.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle (and it’s labelled as ’Pimock’). Pours a hazy, dark honey color, medium white head that dissipated kinda quick, nice lacing though. Nose is malty, some caramel. Mouth is medium bodied and dry (a watery finish though), malt forward with some caramel, grass and bready malts, underlying bitterness, fades out bitter too. Boring, unispired and certainly not really what I look for in a hefeweizen.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours hazy almost cloudy bright orange with a small creamy off-white head, some retention and lacing. rich, dense and douhy wheat along with chewy caramel and toffee - some sweetness - brown sugar, quite floral and fruity - oranges, definitely fewer esters than your regular hefe, some bubblegum, grassy-spicy, chalk, some butter. moderate carbonation, light body - oily, somewhat assertive lightly piney-herbal-grassy balanced finish. weizenbock feeling. interesting and complex enough but i’m somewhat not really digging it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours hazy deep gold with white head. Nose is lemon, floral hop, wheat spice. Flavour has hay/crackery German malt, which endears me to it, as this is something many North American heffes seem to miss. Light, bright, refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Malty, spicy, slightly phenolic aroma, hops, citrus, cloves.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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
