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.

Big banana aroma, familiar hefe yeast flavor with subdued spiciness. A little thin on the palate with an astringency that accumulates with each taste. Best reserved for hot weather though definitely a quality brew by most measures. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. The beer has yellow and golden color, dense high head. Aroma is fruit and banana. Taste sweet, wheat and yeast with some fruit acidity. I like it.

05 l bottle from Kristall-König. Think he organized it at his austrian ski vacation. Or something like that. Thanks a lot mate! Bright unclear pale golden in the glass, with a mighty off white head. Chewing gum and yeast on the nose, some sulfur. Taste starts with a mix of banana, chewing gum, wheat, and some fruity sweetness. Later more wheat influences, high carbonated. Hints of sulfur in the aftertaste. Way better than expected.

This must be commonly available at home, but luckily, I bypass the foreign section in the stores in the US. Deep dark orange coloured body with a big hazy bronze glow and a thick, two centimetre tall pure white head - very nice. Aroma of bananas, grass, yeast, coriander seed and a lot of wheat - very nice and refreshing. Medium to Light-bodied; Sweet and smooth wheat flavour with a hint of sweetness, a lot of citrus and some curacao freshness, all coupled with the very elegant and fragrant yeast strain and some banana esters on the finish. Aftertaste is clean and simple as well, with the citrus, fruits and light sweetness all noticeable in a good way. Overall, a very nice german wheat from next door here in Austria and definitely worth sampling, especially where it doesnt have to come far from the source! I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from Spar [Gourmet] in central Wien, Austria yesterday on 21-March-2016 for €0,89 sampled in my apartment hotel in the middle of Wien, Austria on 22-March-2016.
