Danish: Carls Hvede henter sin inspiration i de bayerske hvedeøl, der fra 1960erne og frem fik en kæmpe renæssance i Tyskland. Øllet er orangegyldent og uklart med en stor livlighed, og har en ganske kraftig frugtagtig aroma med noter af banan, nelliker, skovsyre og koriander. Smagen byder på en stor maltsødme samt en lille bitterhed.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2010 Here is an ordinary weizen with the usual aroma. The taste seemed a little artificial and rubber-like at first, but not at all in the second beer I had luckily bought. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that this beer is unfiltered - it is actually quite rare for a Carlsberg! Fruity taste too, with hints from the yeast. Medium, but correctly hopped taste. Surprisingly invisible alcohol-taste. Medium length aftertaste with yeast, fruity notes and hops. Not impressive, but a good beer - especially for a macrobrew. I could easily be caught buying this one on a hot summerday if I wanted to buy a non-expensive beer which also could be enjoyed at the same time.

gnoff (8150) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2006
Draught at the Jacobsen pub in the Carlsberg visitors center in Copenhagen, Denmark. Shady orange color, white head. Fruity scent, refreshing fruity taste. High mouthfeel, low bitterness. Didn’t feel like much a wheat beer.

Aroma is like any international lager (!). Served freezingly cold with a minor head. Some bananas in there. Refreshing summers drink, but no other qualities.
