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.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Bottle shared by decaturstevo. Poured a slightly hazy pale with a creamy white head that left good lace. Wheat aroma with a light apple and honey backing. The flavor has the wheat and spice expected of a hefe but also some honey and other light malts in the background. Light body.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - DEC 13, 2008
Bottle, just like in the picture. Pours burnt orange with a tight bubbled white head into a Brooklyn wheat glass. The aroma is almost all bubblegum with just some wheat to balance it out a little. The flavor starts out with smooth banana and vanilla along with the mellowest of spicy hops. A really interesting and unique weizen that finishes dry.

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 .

decaturstevo’s 2008 Zapit Tasing Tasting. Sample from a bottle thanks to decaturstevo. Crystal clear yellow color with a thin white head, dry yeasty aroma. Some wheat and pale malt, yeasty esters mostly banana light spice, dry wheat germ, grainy finish.

oldrtybastrd (4337) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2008
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 (2891) - 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.

Shared with Pyrozoid. Cloudy dark orange poor, small frothy offwhite head. Aromas are of caramel, hint of fine cognac, candy apple, cinnamon stick, cereal. Not as sweet as the aromas might lead to beleive, faint bitterness, low carbonation, medium body. Flavors of butter, caramel, maple syrup.
