The german wheat beers are travelling north. This fairly new wheat sets itself apart from the typical bavarian by its unique taste and the typical flensburger bottle.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Pours a clear darker golden with some larger soda bubbles and a large thick creamy off-white head. Zesty sweet ripe banana aroma with notes of butter yeast and hay/pumpkin seeds. Whoa... a bit different in taste. These deScriptors are pretty right on, paper, toffee, cashews and candied ripe banana. Finishes dry with with some chalky alcohol bitterness and light bubble-gum. Weak watery palate that still manages to leave a sugary feeling in the mouth, lightly gritty with softer large bubble carbonation .

Shared this one with my friend Gyurke in Wiesbaden. Pours a hazy golden orange. Aromas of bread/bananas/ and some fruit. Had a taste of yeasty bread with some spice. Not as clove/banana as most Hefs I’ve tried. I would actually seek this one out.

asheft (2778) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2008
[bottle] Mostly sweet bubblegum in the nose along with some corriander hops. Cloudy, brownish-dark yellow with a dense, shiny white cover. Bready and herbal lotus root malt with bubblegum and corriander burps. A mild bitterness comes in with a kind of mineral water character. Dryer than some weizens and more refreshing. Light body, elevated carbonation, celery bitter finish.

Hazy golden in color with a frothy, long lasting head and active bubbly carbonation. very nice appearance. Aroma is grainy and wheaty, not as many esters and spice as I would expect. Taste is grainy, with tangy wheat. the malts get a bit stale with wet paper and light cardboard. medium body.

No 410
Rated: 21.05.2008
Bottle brown, 330 ml 11.8 P
Appearance: Pours orangy - lemon body colour with slightly hazy texture but not that hazy or cloudy as many other German Hefeweizens, carbonation is of a natural origin and the beer is gently sparkling, so also lower intensity in carbonation as compared to others Weizens. Head is white, frothy, initially big but not huge and slowly decreasing to minimal, no lacing.
Aroma: Grainy, bready (dark brad), toasted malts, wheat, gentle notes of banana, clove and orange peal, some gentle hoppyness in aroma also gives some signs but it is dominated by the general and overwhelming malty - wheaty sweetness. Some notes of caramel, definitely sweet aroma, very well pronounced.
Flavour: Very well pronounced wheat and barley, yeast, creamy texture, not wattery, towards the medium it becomes accidic, nice baked white bread, rolls, some flowery notes of aromatic hoppy nose. Finish duration is medium to long.
Palate: Body is medium, a bit creamy, carbonation on palate is mild, finish feel is medium accidic, slightly creamy, mild with aromatic hoppy nose.
