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

God hefeweiss fra Østrig. Frisk smag, tilpas med bitterhed og sødme.. Meget kedeligt udseende.

GreenCat (35) - SLOVENIA - OCT 1, 2016
0,5l bottle. Pours hazy yellow golden with big white head. Nose is mainly yeast, some bread, banana and vanilla, a hint of sulfur too. Same goes on with flavor. Body is light, on verge of watery, carbonation is average to lively with light bitterness at the end. Not bad, but lacks refinement of more prominent hefe weissbier examples.

herrklemann (104) - AUSTRIA - SEP 28, 2016
0.33 bottle at Theatercafé Graz. Pours a hazy yellow with a big white head. Aroma of artificial banana bubblegum, hints of herbs, hints of dry hay, so boozy I had to look at the ABV again. Taste is sweet, with light sourness that doesn’t mix in all that much or well. Lingering finish of artificial banana, no bitterness. Body is surprisingly thin for the amount of booze in the aroma - and this being a Hefeweizen. Not that great at all. Carbonation is lively, texture kind of sticky.
Meh. I switched to drinking elderberry juice after having had one of these. There’s _a lot_ of better Hefeweizen out there.

Złote z bogatą białą pianą. Aromaty drożdży, banana. W smaku skórka chleba, banany. Piwo lekkie, raczej słodkie.

50 cl bottle. Pours hazy light brown color, medium head. Aroma is yeasty, bananas, malty. Taste is banana, caramel, yeast and medium sweet aftertaste. Body is light, especially for a weizen beer. Overall a good beer.

hauxe (443) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2016
Pours hazy gold from the bottle. The head is creamy and voluminous. A yeasty aroma greets the nose along with a dose of banana that is less pronounced than usual for beers of this style. Taste is yeasty, bready, banana sweet, with a tart lemon tang that asserts itself at the finish. Body is light for the style. Decent stuff for the most part, but still lacking. Where I would have expected a hint of spice there is a bland, almost watery emptyness. Still, this is not a bad beer, just an incomplete one.

Antonio369 (171) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2016
0,5 l bottle, served in weizen glass. Poured hazy golden with a three finger slightly off white head. Lively carbonation in glass. Aromas of lemon, ripe banana, cloves, spices, vanilla. Taste: Lemon, overripe banana, vanilla, cloves, caramel, spices, sugar candy. A very nice foamy and creamy mouthfeel. Light bitterness. A medium body with a slightly dry and fruity finish. I really enjoy this hefeweizen, it’s deliciously good!
