Nickls (2357) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 25, 2010
(Old BA rate - bottle) Pours a slightly hazy rusty yellow color with a thinner white head; OK lacing but nothing special...not really looking for that in the style. Bright citrus aromas; a hint of yeast; spice and a little sweet banana in aroma. Kind of like a wit/hefe hybrid; citrus and a little yeast tartness; but the sweet fruit flavors come through mostly. Not bad, just a little off-style. Thinner to medium, and substantial; soft carbonation. Nice enough drinking here; not as tart and refreshing as others, but OK. I’ll be damned, finally the first decent Swiss beer that I’ve had since arriving in Geneva.

thebeertourist (5179) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2010
Bottle bought at Geneva airport. Cloudy golden with a medium head. Somewhat astringently spicy banana aroma, hints of wet cardboard. The flavours are too sweet, but with definite banana notes. Too light body for the style. This Calvinist approach to hefeweizen is not quite successful.
