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.

A nice hefe. Pours a hazy yellow with a great head that won’t go away! Aroma has some banana, clove mixed in. Good wheat beer flavor, nice mouth feel. Great after taste. I can’t wait to get to Austria to try this on tap! I will be in heaven!

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.

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.

Bottle. Moderate grain and white bread for the malt, light to moderate lemon for the herbs and dough for the yeast, with hints of banana and clove. Head is large, frothy, white with good slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy yellow. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes faintly bittersweet. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, a little slick and has a lively carbonation and a dry finish. A bit more refreshing than most German Hefeweizens.

adster (158) - HUNGARY - JUN 28, 2014
Halványsárga színű, opálos búzasör, melynek hamar elmúló lágy, krémszerű habja van és intenzív, élesztős illata. Az első kortyok határozott szénsavasságról tesznek tanúbizonyságot, kissé éles, enyhén csípős hatást kiváltva. Élénkebb jellege mellett enyhe citrusossága miatt is ideális szomjoltóként funkcionál, de azok is megtalálhatják benne számításaikat, akik az ízekre is szeretnek némi figyelmet fordítani. Ehhez nagyszerű alapot szolgáltat az élesztős, malátás, kissé fűszeres jelleg, melyek megadják a sör határozott karakterét.

massingasetta (169) - München, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2014
Farbe ist nebelig gold und so wie man ein Hefeweizen sich vorstellt. Pluspunkte gibt es ebenenfalls beim sehr heftigen Geruch. Schaumkrone ist wenig beständig, aber das tut dem Kohlensäuregehalt kein Abbruch. Der Antrunk ist eine gute Kombination von süss und hefig zugleich. Auch wenn dieses Bier recht einfach daherkommt überzeugt es mich. Der Körper und Abgang sind einseitig klar hefig. Dieses Bier kann eins und das sehr gut. Fazit: Premiumweizen aus dem Salzburger Land.

Bottle at home. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head. Aroma of bread dough, fruity, bit of banana, but not too much, wheat and yeast. Taste is sweet fruity, yeast, wheat, slightly bitter aftertaste. Not bad.

Douberd (2057) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle 500 ml at home, poured into a weizen glass, ABV 5.3% Golden honey colour on the bosy, slighty hazy, with a big white head sitting on top, very thick, with good retention, leaving light lacing behind. Aroma of ripe bananas, ripe pears, light floral notes and yeast. Nice taste, wheat, fruity with mostly ripe bananas, a touch of bubblegum. Medium thin body, good carbonation. Overall quite good, meets the expectations.
