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.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Hazy yellow color with a beautiful thick and lasting white head. Citrusy aroma with some banana. Flavor hints at having a distinctive fruity flavor but in the manages only to seem a bit watered-down. Not a bad beer but really not anything too special either.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Beneath a huge pillow of nearly white foam, the beer is a hazy straw color. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of tangy wheat, some tart lemon, and unripe banana. Semi sweet and delicious wheat bread flavors, accompanied by yeast, clove, banana, and a touch of tangy hop. Refreshing beer nicely in balance. Light to medium body, good carbonation.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2006
Bottled. Nice aroma of lemon and banana. Cloudy, dark yellow color, white fine head, fair lace. Light sweet, bit citric, lemon, hint of banana. Light to medium body. Nice Weizen but I like them fuller and a little sweeter.

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.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - DEC 19, 2006
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.

Stefano (1880) - Esbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2006
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.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2006
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.
