4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1 pint 0.9oz bottle into a Weizen Glass. The abv is listed on the label at 5.3% and there is no freshness date.
Appearance: It has a deep hazy orange amber body with visible carbonation. A quick pour fills the glass with foam. After a minute to settle I very slowly finished pouring and ended up with a nice three finger head. The light beige head hangs on well and makes lots of cool lace patterns on the glass.
Smell: Big German yeast notes rush up to fill my nose. The aroma is all about the classic banana notes with some mild clove and bready sweet malt.
Taste: The best way to describe this beer is that is like banana bread with nuts and chocolate chips. The palate is a firm medium body with nice active carbonation.
Notes: Outstanding!!! This beer is a work of wheat beer art.

Bottle, 500ml. Pours golden/orangey brown and extremely cloudy. Head is off-white, lively, and of substantial volume, with long retention. Primary notes on the nose are wholemeal bread, salted caramel, banana, with a backdrop of subtle woodsmoke and smaller notes of a spicy, christmas pudding-esque character. A bit later the aroma takes on a mustier, more farmyard-esque nature with hints of apple (or apple pie/crumble) and other fruits I can’t quite make out. Very interesting so far. Taste is initially sweet and malty though following this is a more neutral, pastry-esque character with a lot of cereal. Not massively complex in this regard but has a hearty feel to it. Finish is very dry for the most part (like the standard Hefeweizen) and what little aftertaste is akin to that of weetabix, with some VERY subtle bitterness. Palate wise, body is a decent medium while the texture seems a little too thin and watery but this doesn’t bring it down much. This is recommended for fans of weetabix, and probably makes a great breakfast beer.

Opaque dark orange, off-white lasting lacing foam head. Decent, not strong, caramel aroma, suttle taste. Some orange tones there. Good beer. (Velp 201506)

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great German beer with a moderate complexity, full of details, with lack of depth for my taste. But style is not the beer.

Bottle from Drinks of the World. Pours hazy brown with a silken foam. The increased amounts of malts are already noticeable in the nose, which is also a bit citric. The taste is fuller and sweeter than in the regular Weihenstephaner, but the texture is a bit watery.

Amber pour, huge barely off white head. Nose is medium roasted grain and yeast. Bittersweet. Middle is soft banana and caramelized malt. Finish is slightly sweet. This went great with pulled pork, coleslaw and bread and butter pickles.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Precioso color miel y madera y sugerente aspecto, muy cremoso. Fantastica espuma densa y muy abundante. Aroma especiado y sobre todo de rica malta. Cuerpo moderado bien estructurado, con una carbonización en su justo punto, sue se nota en la lengua y deja un rico toque de clavo. después aparece un excelente sabor a malta, junto con un leve recuerdo frutal. Gran final con un toque seco. Sin duda entre las top cervezas de trigo morenas.

Pours a light brown color, completely hazy, topped with an avergae sized off-white foamy head. Retention very solid. Malty aroma, mildly biscuity nad sweet. Taste is similar - malty, mild chocolate presence with grassy finish and a bit of that soury feel in the end. Perfectly decent.
