Sweet, stacks of bubblegum, very low carbination. Some spice and coriander in the back palate, but flavours ’disappear’ on the finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
In short: A rather typical Hefe except for an excessive sweetness level. Below average.
How: Tap at brewpub (Pivovarský Dum, Prague)
The look: Cloudy light yellow body with a medium white head
In long: Fresh green bananas and coriander on the nose. The floury wheat gave me an overall sensation of my Shredded Wheat ™ breakfast cereals. Taste is rather lemony. So far this is a good Hefeweizen but it looses points with me because of its sweetness level. Relative to the style this beer was too sweet and not a highly drinkable thirst-quencher. I’ve had a few German style beer brewed in Czech Republic and all failed to impress me. I have however heard that this country is pretty good at brewing Czech pils, but that may just be a rumour.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Nice hazy pale yellow appearance, foamy huge white head. The aroma is a light banana-phenolic perfume of an avarage wheatbeer. The flavour is as robustic as the other beers and the stuff of the brewpub.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught, Pivovarsky Dum. Authentic tasty hefeweizen with silk, pepper, wood and lemony citrus (slice). Cereal bowl milky/mealy aftertaste. The esteriness and body are there. Didn’t expect to, but really enjoyed this. Never judge a wheat beer by the lemon slice it’s served with..

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2007 Draught at Pivovarsky Dum. Really milky and solid beige color is a little odd. Tart banana aroma is very nice and typical of the style. The flavor is sweet and creamy. The mouthfeel is amazing; smooth, creamy, and thick. Something about this hef just worked for me. Very nice.
