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

Grumbo (630) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2014
Bottle from www.slijterijhetfust.nl poured a hazy deep yellow colour, with a huge white head. Aroma of wheat, spices and banana. Medium sweet, minimal carbonation once head had subsided. Light-medium body.

YantarCoast (202) - Moscow, RUSSIA - DEC 13, 2014
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 (249) - 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 (1557) - 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
