MichaelAwesome (4300) - 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 (4309) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, 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 (4778) - 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.

Saeglopur (364) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle. Dark orange, cloudy body, with a big, frothy, white head. Aroma of banana, orange, clove, some bread, some roastyness. Taste with about the same aromas. Mouthfeel is medium to light, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes light, fruity and spicy. Somewhere between a pale Hefeweizen and a Dunkelweizen. Not bad, but a bit too thin for my liking.

novakcsabi (8) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 13, 2014 does not count
Though i’m not a great lover of ’weissbier’, I really fell for Edelweiss. It’s best served with a slice of lemon, really cold. Back in the college years, we had loads of Edelweiss in Múzeum Kávézó, Budapest. Yesterday, I had one in Kamara Café, it was a real punchline for a hard day’s night.

Marcius (209) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - MAY 4, 2014
Appearance with amber color (dark), cloudy liquid and high head. Average aroma. One medium acidity on the palate and low bitterness.

StueyD (1175) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2014
A mid orange amber coloured, slightly hazy beer with a frothy white head. A light, slightly citrusy aroma, the traditional wheat beer elements come later, light clove spice and tropical fruit. Dry mouthfeel. A dry wheat taste to start, is followed by a citrus dominant fruit flavour, lemony, then the tropical fruit, bubblegum and clove spice, makes for a more refreshing wheat beer. Tasted at Gasthof Eggerwirt, Kitzbühel, Austria. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
