From 0,5l bottle, BBD: 05.2015, Pours nice hazy golden liquid, big frothy white head, hold on all the time. Aroma: fruity, banana, clove, some citruses, Taste: medium sweet, light to medium bitter, light to medium sour, ripe banana dominating, clove, lemon at the end, well balanced, Palate: medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, long lemon finish. Overall: very good, nice dominating ripe banana, well ballanced, very good drinkability, perhaps only the aroma could be more complex and intensive.

Bottle from a local shop. 500ml and brewed in Russia. Looks the part with the big white head and extensive lacing. Aroma of bananas and cloves. Taste is similar. Overall it's a decent hefeweizen.

SinH4 (274) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 12, 2014
Hazy golden color with big fluffy Weizen head that dissipates quicker than it should... Not enough hops? Smells of sweet bananas, even a bit artificial. Taste is sweet bananas, maybe even pears, a bit spicy. Also a bit of unbalanced tartness and surprisingly boozy... Bubble gum taste stays behind. Good Weizen carbonation. Okay Hefeweizen, but not much more.

Deliciosa weissbier, harmoniza bem c carnes mais gordurosas e dias mais frescos, para uma weiss não apresenta aquele peso na estômago.

Bif (1564) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle. pours a hazy light golden color with a nice head. Aroma of citrus, banana, yeast, fruit sweetness and spice. Taste of fruit sweetness, banana and bit of spice. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Moderate body, has a nice "Hefe" character. Nice beer for the style.

Mediocre for a Bavarian beer. Actually doesn't taste much like a Hefeweizen. More like half a Hefeweizen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
