2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Reviewed 3/6/13. 11.2 oz bottle poured into a weizen glass.
A: Pours a cloudy dark gold color. The head is a three finger white shade with that has a foamy appearance to it. Retention is really nice, too.
S: Not only are the typical banana/clove estery aromas lacking here...so is just about anything else. About the only thing I really notice is a mild cherry-like sweetness and the faintest hint of wheat. Not really a bad aroma - after all, how can a nose so weak be considered bad?
T: Well, the aroma suggested a feeble flavor, and that’s what I got. While the lack of weizen esters allows the opening wheat quality and finishing noble hops to shine through more strongly, it really drinks like a dinky-ass US wheat ale (think Widmer Hefeweizen) than a proper German hefeweizen. Okay, so a slight banana presence builds up after a few sips, but by then it’s too little, too late. Just a boring beer in all flavor aspects.
M: The texture does a good job of staying out the way of the lack of flavor by finishing with a mildly clean dryness to it. I could do without the budding wet, syrupy linger, but I’ll certainly give it points for being refreshing and crisp.
O: A score this low would suggest a mediocre-to-poor effort riddled with flaws - however this isn’t actually flawed, just devoid of any good weizen characteristics...or any characteristics for that matter. This one is certainly easy to down, at least. But when both Sierra Nevada and Weihenstephaner make weizens that are both superbly drinkable AND full of character, why should you care about this one?

Tap at Mexican restaurant outside Munich, 25th November 15. Aroma is citrus, some spice. Taste is straight forward, quite refreshing. Not bad, nothing particular

Obyčajný tuctový weizen s nádhernou penou a krásnym vzhľadom, tam to končí chuť ma neprekvapila.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy amber, large frothy white head. Little in the way of aroma gets through the head. Sweet cereal flavours, a little citrus, not much else. Heavy and fine carbonation. Not unpleasant at all but unimpressive.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Cloudy liquid under a nice white head with great lacing. Crisp aroma, banana, typical weissbier. Carbonation is medium and the main flavour background is mild banana, sweetish wheat and balanced citrus character. The finish is very smooth and gradual. Somewhat oily, mild to medium body but pretty good for a weissbier.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The standard Weizen you get all around Germany. When you want to drink one, its quite likely that they have only this - happened to me just a few days back in Berlin. I mean its not bad, but I always sigh when I see it - there are so many better ones. This has so little aromas.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
The aroma of the wheat. The flavor of wheat and water. Light bitterness which fills the upper part of the moment. Tasteless and watery. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Kurze Review von Untappd: Wohl damals, vor 20 Jahren mein erstes "anderes" Bier, heute mag ich es nicht mehr so.
