Our Ettaler Benedictine monastery top-fermented weizen beer is with a very special touch. The special brewing and the use of selected wheat and barley malt to give together with the fine wheat beer yeast, our very own, fresh and fruity note. Salary and acharaktervoll - a wheat beer class.

Dorqui (2188) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 3, 2009
Bottled 0,50L. Abundant, strong, resistant head. Elegant orange dark color, much lively and bubbly. Fresh aroma with clear mildew notes, banana, lemon, honey. Complex and explosive taste, much dense and fresh one. Pleasant and indeed rich.

esox (1226) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 9, 2010
Draught. Slightly reddish orange and hazy beer. Rich head is dense and very creamy. The aroma has sweetish wheat malts, soma banana and spicy yeast. Enjoyable fruitiness and some hops in the finish. Medium sweet taste finishes dryish yeasty and slightly bitter. Medium bodied palate is very smooth and refreshngly carbonated. A very good weizen.

Bottle conditioned. Hazy gold, good fluffy white head and moderate condition. Spicy ester and cloves in the nose, excellent banana and esters in the mouth with a sweet yeastiness reminiscent of a Weihenstephan. Long refreshing wheaty and banana finish.

Bottle, bootlegged from Germany. Cloudy brown, big rocky beige head. Smells wheay, with a hint of rye. Very smooth palate, nicely sweet, with rye and prune and raisin, and a crisp, lightly bitter finish. Tasty.

Gubihumle (584) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2015
En meget anbefalelsesværdig øl. Udseende, smag og duft er lige som en en hvedeøl skal være. Den er desværre vanskelig at komme i nærheden af. Men hvis I finder en, så nyd den endelig..

bierkoning (12403) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2004
Golden color, cloudy. Sedate aroma, only a hint of fruit. Pear, mandarin and banana fruit in the flavor. Hint of tartness. Mandarin aftertaste. Lovely hefeweizen, very refreshing but not without complexity.

darkseduction (716) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2008
Bottle 50cl. Pours a very good looking Weizen, almost orange coloured. Just the right quantity of yeast. Huge white head, fizzy carbonation. Fruity, yeasty, grainy, refreshing. The perfect Beer for Biergarten in summertime. Aaah!

Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild, modest yeasty, not too dry. Fine fruity notes of banana. Modest sweet. Well balanced finish. Nice!
