(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm) Orange colour, hazy, with a huge white head. Fruity nose with notes of orange, Seville orange, cereal and some toffee. A bit restrained. Fruity taste with spicy notes of orange, banana and plum. Fairly dry, short finish. Well made and refreshing, but a bit restrained.

I might have had Erdinger Weissbier ocktoberf weizen but do not see that listed. Quite mediocre with poor aftertaste.

Tried this being a big fan of hefeweizen’s, especially Weihenstephaner and Hoegaarden. Pale cloudy yellow color, lemon and citrus nose and flavor. Good, but pretty standard hefeweizen with no particular characteristics to distinguish it from the rest of the pack.

33cl bottle: My least favorite of German Hefes that I have drank. The aroma is somewhat lemony and crisp. The flavor is lacking and the cloudiness wasn’t as beautiful and sparkly as other hefes. Palate was also a bit thin. Go for a Paulaner or Franizkaner.

Bottle Nose of grainy tartness. with a little banana, hazy gold with a small white head; flavor is wheaty with a little banana, and a little tartness in the finish. No date, but don’t think this bottle is very fresh.

Poured hazy golden with a large white head. Taste was lightly acidic. There isn’t much else to say but, I have to type something or it won’t take the rating.

(500 ml bottle at Henriksberg, Gothenburg) Shady light straw yellow color. Huge white creamy head. Small fruity scent, not as much banana as I’m used to, still fresh. Fresh typical wheat beer taste, fresh mouth feel. Sweet after taste. Low to no bitterness.
