MichaelAwesome (4924) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2014
Typisches Weizen ohne grossen Charakter. Hefig mit ein klein wenig Spritzigkeit und ein bisschen an Fruechten. Recht trinkbar, langweilig, seelenlos.

McTapps (4925) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle from Spar in Austria. The beer pours out in a hazy orange-amber colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of yeast and bread, followed by a taste of intense yeast, dough, bread, wheat, cloves and bananas. Typical Hefeweizen, nothing good but also nothing bad about it.

Borresteijn (5068) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2014
50cl Bottle brought from Austria, thanks dad! Murky golden amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of banana, ripe pear, wheat, some grain, yeast. Flavour is medium sweet, wheat, banana, pear, just light spicy, light grainy, yeast, becomes sweeter towards the end of the glass. Light-bodied, a little watery, but decent Weizen.
