MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 30, 2012
(swing top bottle, courtesy of Quack-Duck) Cloudy, golden colour with a blond and huge foamy head. Yeasty, slightly dusty wheat-malty aroma with shy notes of banana and strong phenolic spicy notes. Moderately sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation for a Hefeweizen. Wheaty and moderately banana-fruity taste with clovy notes showing up quite early and lingering into the mildly sweet finish. A tad to spicy for my liking. 04.IV.12

jaghana (5498) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 25, 2011
Bottle 33cl, a cloudy golden-orange beer with huge creamy head. Nose is intense on banana, pineapple and fresh bread. Aroma is malty / weizen but dry with almond notes, finish is short and grainy, less complex as expected, interesting aroma but body is a bit watery.

MartinT (9369) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2011
My Bottom Line :
This cohesive Weizen showcases bananas, cloves and wheat bread until an earthy, herbal bitterness dries up the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A creamy veil of foam laces all around the cloudy orangey blond.
-Apple skin allusions add depth.
-A quenching tartness makes the beer even more drinkable.
-The frothy effervescence and relative dryness make this feel lighter than your average Weizen.
-Some minerals appear in the finish.

Bottle. The aroma is sweet and very fruity, later a little bit sour. The white large foamy head has a normal duration, the body is pale yellow. The taste is light sour, a little bit citrus. The body is light and sparkling with a lively carbonation.
