Decent weizen, made to taste better after a few weeks drinking the more commonly available lagers.

rdb84 (346) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy golden, gentle carbo, stable foam head. A: fresh wheat, citrus, hint of banana, some dried oregano, corn, yeast. T: refreshing, slightly doughy. Corn taste, which develops towards faint banana. Very mild bitterness. Aftertaste is quite dry, fruity. Probably rated a little higher because this was a welcome find in Greece after finding lagers only.

Gerbeer (2403) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold. Aromas of earthy wet wheat and dried bananas. Flavors of watery wheat, bubble gum and banana. Simple and easy to drink. A good alternative to all the lagers on the Islands.

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle in Kos. A stubby 500ml Duvel-style bottle of a type previously unseen: bonus point. Steady streaming ochre with a fat nitro-esque mousse. Massive clods of yeast left cornering the emptied bottle: another bonus point. Aroma of milk shits, TCP yeast, jasmine incense sticks, parsley, smoked juniper, tired clove. Nitro thickness with an unsophisticated burnt clove ester note dominating. Hints of parsley and dank aniseed. For a GK macro it’s interesting and admittedly not dead; as a hefeweizen it’s piss poor and overwhelmed by inappropriate yeasty notes belonging more to Keith’s madcap homebrew than a crisp quenching wheat.

Vestergaard (952) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2015
Bottle at Symi, Greece. Pours a hazy golden/yellow with a medium sized white head. Aroma is citrussy and wheaty with hints of banana, Esters and lots of yeast. Taste is sweet and yeasty. Slightly metallic and citrussy, and a dry finish. High carb and a smooth but slightly watery body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
