COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

lb4lb (2587) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Pours golden to orange with short lived white head. Smell is estery and yeasty with stale, semi-rotten bananas. Taste is a bit sweet for a hefeweizen. Bottle is fairly fresh, but it doesn’t really taste it. Yeast flavor is there with banana, and very subtle spice from the yeast if at all. Didn’t enjoy this and there are many, much better hefs out there, I think.

tomer (2905) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAY 20, 2009
At a tasting, thanks David. Small stable head, clear yellow colour with orange taints, spice banana and earthy mossy notes on the nose, Dry with notes of orange but a little dry and watery, short cheesy aftertaste. Not very good.

DSG (11600) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 18, 2009
Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks David Cohen! Best before date is a week ago. Slightly hazy golden. Phenolic yeasty spiciness and fruits in the aroma. Sourish flavor with lots of yeast and tropical fruit hints. Light-bodied.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 13, 2009
330mL fliptop poured into a pint glass. The pour is pretty unimpressive on this one. It pours a deep golden color with a very bubbly, effervescent head that recedes immediately to nothing and leaves no ring or lacing to speak of. The aroma is very light and mainly some bananas with a light yeast aroma and hints of clove, but not a lot. The taste is a watered down version of the aroma with some banana sweetness and a bit more lemony tartness up front. The yeast backbone is there as well. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and almost watered-down with lots of bubbly carbonation. This is an average hefe at best and the flavors are just too light and watery to make this one too enjoyable.

184601 (206) - Mexicali, MEXICO - MAY 12, 2009
mm not bad, but i was expecting better grom a German company however purchaed at WAL mART in Mexicali,Mexico, single bottle, maybe its because it was about to expire but , the cloudygolden body and , hazy , quick-fadong head doesnt quite beat American macro-hefes, hasnt too mcuh of flavour just the abscence of lupus(hops), nothing special really

Panzerfaust (790) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 8, 2009
Pours a hazy dark yellow colour with a big, cotton-like white head. It lasts for some minutes and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma has lots of banana, as expected but it’s not as strong as some other Hefes I had (like Franziskaner and Paulaner) and some wheat is also noticeable. Flavor is rather light, refreshing with lots of wheat and grains. Tends to the sweet side without being cloying and maintaining a refreshing profile. Good light to medium body, medium carbonation. Simple, crisp and refreshing. Silck texture, finishes short and bold. A good Hefe from Northern Germany.

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2009
(Bottle BB 113109): Pours a very pale yellow color body, somewhat cloudy. Small creamy whitish head. Lastingish. Banana aroma, some alcohol. Light fruit. Spiciness too. Banana and fruit taste. Light spiciness. A little too harsh for a typical hefeweizen. Somewhat malty taste.
