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.

pkbites (700) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2012
On tap at "The Wall" night club in Pisa, Italy. Cloudy light yellow pour. Thick marshmallow head. Flavor of marshmallow and goop. Grainy roasted smegma aroma. Thin, watery mouth feel. No hops, no malt, no after taste. FAIL!!!!!!!

Zarkam (516) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2015
500ml bottle from supermarket in Vyborg, made by Heineken Russia, hazy pale yellow colour, small frothy white head, fair lacing. Moderately malty aroma of grain and bisquit with moderate banana esthers with some cloves and a hint of generic hops. Taste is moderately sweet at first, turning into a bittersweet finish wiht a hint of sourness. Medium body, dry mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Tolerable but unsurprising weizen, probably better price-quality ratio in Russia than with the bulk German wheat beers they sell at four times the price.

0,5l fles op wintersport 2015. Goudgeel met een witte kraag. Citrus met banaan. Niet echt bijzonder.

Alengrin (2813) - BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2015
Popular Austrian Hefeweizen, tasted many years ago, ABV was 5.4% then; rating from old notes. Straw blonde, cloudy beer under a creamy, yellowish white head, less ’lush’ than I am used to from its Bavarian brethren, but this may have to do with the bottle being a few years old already at the time. Aroma of bready malts, sourish wheat, cloves, baker’s yeast and a hint of banana; bready, yeasty taste, dryish with a sourish wheat effect, faint spiciness and a faint hint of herbal hops in the background, refreshing. Acceptable but I had many better (usually Bavarian) examples of the style.

Looks like a German Weizen but does not taste like one. Nice foam but a taste that simply doesn’t really deliver. Simple taste that dies away quickly. There are a lot of better Heifeweizens then this one.

FTA: Kingisepp shop. Was quite a surprise to get it there. Probably locally brewed. Drinkable.

Arek (422) - Zielona Góra, POLAND - FEB 9, 2015
21.01.13: Bottle 0.5 l. Jasno złote, mętne piwo o grubej, puszystej i bardzo trwałej pianie. W smaku bardzo łagodne, wyważone, cytrusowe - przypomina trochę witbiera.

Dzhigga (186) - Kirov, RUSSIA - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle. Russian licensed variant of german weissbier. Hazy golden color with nice head. Aroma of banana and yeast. Taste is sweet, but with notes of somewhat like artificial bitterness. Finish is short. Rather watery texture. Not the best weizen.

Meilby (8514) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle 500ml @ Wallehen Apartment, Saalbach, Austria
Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, wheat, banana and hint of clove. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long fruity, banana, wheat and yeasty finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is fizzy

vidmidia (42) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - JAN 11, 2015
Bem aromática, com toques de banana, cravo e cítricos. Retrogosto cítrico e adocicado, mas de curta duração. Melhor no aroma que no paladar.
