Aroma of vanilla and wheat. Slightly hazed gold pour. Vanilla and a very light bitter. Good carbonation light and slightly watery. Pretty good but not much like a hefe?

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy copper golden color with a medium frothy white head that lasts awhile. The aroma is banana, clove, wheat, and dry yeast. Good sticky lacing on the glass. The taste is a watery wheat malt with banana and a dry finish. A decent hefe from Flensburger.

Typical Weitzen taste. Love the pop bottle.
Have not tried to drink it non-chilled yet.
This weizen beer is really an Excellent Imported Value.

I like the bottle cool cork contraption. The beer has a nice haze, clean smell and taste. Not overly flavorful but a solid hefe.

Thanks to decaturstevo for sharing this at his 2008 Zapit Tasing Tasting.
Pours clear light gold with a small white head.
Faint malt aroma little or no other esters.
Just not much here to talk about.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 .
