Bottle, 355ml. Pours a deep, opaque golden/orange colour with plenty of carbonation and a velvet offwhite head that’s quick to dissolve. Aroma is quite weizen-like, with strong banana and bubblegum hints. Heavy and robust, with a strong alcohol finish, but somewhat hidden bitterness. Good beer.

omhper (19321) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2013
Bottled. Cloudy deep golden, small head. Aroma of honey and banana. Fruity and mid sweet with medium-full body and rounded mouthfeel. Apple and caramel, notes of licorice and banana. Long warming finish. Peculiar and quite interesting.

I was quite excited about this beer, I love weizen beers and Calavera has been doing awesome brews. This beer’s aroma is sweet, biscuity, with a nutmeg and star anise like undertones. The appearance was clear, clean and dark gold color. Taste... Extremely sweet to taste, the sweetness overpowers the rest of the beer, I have to say I had this beer on bottle, and I know they do bottle conditioning, this beer either had major production flaws (stressed yeast, temperature control issues) or the bottle conditioning was not done right. A weizen is usually characterized by banana esters and clove phenols, none of these where present. High amounts of dyacethyl where also present. Esta cerveza tiene un color dorado oscuro, mucha claridad (por lo regular una weizen es turbia). Tome esta cerveza en botella, y el sabor era demasiado dulce para su estilo, tan dulce que fue ingerible. Los niveles de dyacetyl (disculpen mi español) son muy altos, esto me indica que la botella no fue apropiadamente acondicionada o hay alguna falla en su producción a causa de levadura estresada o los niveles de temperatura no fueron los adecuados al fermentar. Muy decepcionante.

Una cerveza con aromas y sabores frutales y dulces. Cuerpo turbio y color increíble. En general una gran cerveza para aquellos que buscan algo fresco y relajado, pero con gran sabor.

emartell (240) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - APR 1, 2013
Aroma muy agradable y fresco. Las notas a granos sobresalen, percibiendose fácilmente la cebada y el trigo. También destacan los aromas herbales, principalmnte a pino y una frescura muy agradable con perfiles de menta. Su apariencia tiene caracteristicas que deben estar presentes en este estilo como lo es la alta carbonatación y su alta turbiedad, sin embargo el color es de un naranja muy intenso, cuando lo normal es un color más pálido. En boca sumamente dulce para el estilo. Al paladar el dulzor invade las papilas gustativsa dejando ligeramente sabores refrescantes y un poco a trigo, sin embargo no se notan los granos y el cuerpo que debe tener las cervezas que se hagan llamar de este estilo. En general una cerveza que a pesar de no ser de mala calidad, no se asemeja al estilo que indica representar ya que es básico en este estilo el sabor del trigo y un cuerpo redondo, caracteristicas que no se presentan en esta cerveza.

Lubiere (9877) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2013
A hazed amber weizen with a thin off white head. In aroma, a sweet banana malt with light cloves and melon, some ginger, interesting. In mouth, a sweet banana bread, wit cloves, ginger, watery bodied, so-so.

Not much to say about it either. Quite similar to the "Ofrenda" one. VEry cloudy and a little sour, which was good. Nice foam there.
