EDELWEISS Hefetrüb is unfiltered, golden and very fruity with a slight banana nose. Refreshingly this fine sparkling wheat beer offers spice-like flavors on the palate.

Aroma: Banana, cloves and sweet malts. Taste: Very refreshing classic hefeweizen flavour. Bananas, cloves, herbs, little bit of cinnamon and yeast aftertaste. Average head, average carbonation. Great beer for everyone who need to know that syle.

500ml bottle - Thanks Maret!
Quite bold spicey hefe aroma - lots of clove, coriander seed, orange and banana. Pale wheat colour, slightly cloudy, brief tight head. Pretty servicable hefe taste too. Plenty of wheat, banana, some spice, just a tiny sour hint, and a little minerally wateriness. Simple palate, fullish, but nothing special. Finish wheaty, but also some nice herbal hops. After their last wheat beer, I wasn’t expecting much at all, but this is a pretty solid hefe.

jfb (3818) - Freising, GERMANY - JUL 24, 2014
(bottle) pours a murky golden colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of wheat, cheesecake and caramel, with a light hint of floral hops, some yeast, heavy banana and vanilla. flavour is mostly the same, lots of cheesecake, banana and subtle spices, clove, cinnamon and vanilla, with a semi-dry floral-hoppy finish. slightly watery body with average carbonation. awesome stuff!

weihenweizen (1736) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle, best by July 20, 2014, poured into a weizen glass. Pours hazy golden with big bright white head. Aroma is banana with some bubblegum, light body, well carbonated, and some big bubble lacing. Taste is lighter spice (mostly clove), some banana, and some bubblegum. Hoped for more richness in body and taste, but pretty sessionable.

This stuff is OK but there are certainly better hefeweizens to be had. It is a cloudy orange golden color w/ a relatively long-lived head of mixed bubbles. Cloves and bananas hit first in the nose and are followed by a nice bit of grassy hops. This is full bodied with moderate carbonation. It is a bit sweet which brings out some juiciness from the banana but also makes it feel a bit heavy. It finishes w/ a lingering malty bit of sweetness and some clovey spice. I got this right before the best before date, meaning it is probably pretty old. Given that it is still pretty good, I’d be pretty excited to find a fresh example some day.

mikkos (196) - FINLAND - JUL 16, 2014
Murky orange with a big fluffy white head. Mild aroma of yeast, citrusy fruitiness, bananas. Taste is also mild, similar to the aroma. Some herbs there too. A bit on the light side, yet refreshing and very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap for 15 bucks a pint at a Hong Kong bar with the feel of a beach shack... not even on the island. Definitely one of the better ones in the style I’ve tried, very fresh, fruit is more tangerine than banana, nice hoppy finish.
