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.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 20, 2006
In the 355 mL flip cap bottle from Cyclone Liquors. Pours a beautiful murky opaque dark brownish-gold (burnt umber, perhaps?) color with a gigantic wheat beer frothy pillow of a head that completely fills the top half of a 0.5L glass. Outstanding appearance. Great retention and lacing. Aroma is a bit like the smell of my mother’s old Sunbeam mixer whipping up a batch of banana cake batter- that brief reminder of ozone and banana cream pie. Flavor lacks any lemon or banana or cloves. It is simply thick. A very thick palate. Mouth and tongue coating delightfulness. What this beer lacks in flavor, it makes up in character.

Body is a foggy gold, with a thick white head. Aroma is banana esters, clove, pineapple, banana, is on the candy side. Taste is nutmeg, cinnamon, wheat, very light banana, and apple.

Deep golden, faintly orange. Unclear. Off-white tall lasting head. Sweet yeasty aroma. Flavour is sweetish with notes of banana and spices.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2006
Flip-cap bottle. Pours rich and gold with a nice head of white. Smells of metallicized wheat, with bready banana undertones. Very sharp and watery, with hints of clove and banana. Decent mouthfeel. Middle of the road stuff.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2006
(Bottle) Pours a hazy yellow with a long-lasting white head. Yeast and bread in the aroma, but not much yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Some fruity notes, but not as pronounced as other hefeweizens. Moderate carbonation. Not bad, but a pretty mediocre beer.

Nice light gold color with a foamy head. Good lacing. Some light clove and banana, along with some mild tropical fruit. Real crisp and clean wheat taste. Very nice.

I generally like to compare wheat beers to Paulaners Hefe, and I thought this one ranked near as high. It had a real nice citrus/clove taste and wasn’t watered down or bitter. I like to call the clove taste bubble gum flavor (which I like ) and this one had a lot of bubble gum flavor. It had a medium head and a thick haze to it.

From a 355 ml bottle. The body is medium gold a slight greenish tint. The head is a dull whote colored with lots of bubbles working up the glass. The aroma is soapy with strong clove spice behind that. There are also hints of dried banana chips. The taste has some decent banana with some fairly light clove behind that. There is a subtle hint of mild tropical fruit, like mango. This has a creamy mouthfeel and I find it to be a pretty good hefe.

Gr0ve (2134) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2006
500 ml bottle. Orange coloured and somewhat cloudy, but less so than most other weissbiers. Thick creamy white head. Rich clovey and soft banana aromas. Beer is fizzy when it enters the mouth but bready and banana-like flavours come through a moment later. Smooth refreshing mouthfeel. Finishes with notes of orange. Hops are gentle, but noticeable especially in the finish.
