Wendigo (161) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 4, 2016
0.5 l from tap. Typical aroma for weizen beer. Light yellow colour with little fogy appearence and rich white head. Taste is sour but I miss the stronger taste of wheat malts. Palate is watterly with medium carbonation and bitter-sweet finish.

jgb9348 (5681) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 21, 2016
Hazy golden and light copper body with a rich, three centimetre tall frothy off-white head - very nice looking, just like in Munchen! Aroma of bananas, yeast, cloves, coriander seed and the pungent yeast and wheat notes that make this very nice and refreshing. Medium-bodied; Plentiful yeast and wheat flavours with a very pungent banana and clove kick that shows very well and almost full-bodied; Aftertaste is complex with the yeast esters roaming free showing off a bunch of complexity, coupled with the wheat and light sugars. Overall, a very nice hef [but from Austria], which was much better than expected and on par with some of the best from Munchen, all from Austria, and for a ridiculously cheap price! I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from the centre of Wien, Austria at Spar [Gourmet] for €0,89 sampled in my apartment hotel here in the middle of Wien, Austria on 21-March-2016.

Purchased bottle while in Österreich. Very good brew, my new favorite Weizen. Strong aromas of the special Hefe. Not sure I agree with some that taste banana or coriander but I suppose it could be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
