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.

Bottle. Good sized head with good duration. Golden color. Aroma is fruit and malt. Taste is malty and a bit of banana.

12 oz flip top bottle. Nice looking cloudy golden pour with a thick and firm white head. Aroma is light but very pleasant and typical of a decent hefewiezen, with banana and citrus yeastiness. Flavor is well in the zone for a quality German hefe, with lemony tartness, a good and prominent wheat flavor, and a light hoppy bitterness. Very good if not great. Just a bit more watery than some I have had, and the flavor is not as bold as the best of the style. No negatives here, just not a beer that stands out from the rest except for the swing top bottle. Very enjoyable. $2.25 for a single at Broudy’s, Orange Park, FL.

TBone (11947) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 29, 2006
Flip-top bottle (BB 04/2006)
Hazy dark orange, small creamy white head. Dry malty, papery nose - not very hefeweizen-like. Papery cardboard wheaty flavor, quite dry mouthfeel. Maybe bottle was a bit past its prime.

JK (4293) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2006
From Northern Germany I’m told. The banana is there but it is light. Very light citrus. Flavor is more crisp and clean than thick, but it has some sweetness and all around no flaws are to be found. The swingtop is an unneccessary expense. Cloudy and some sediment.

heykevin (1273) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - APR 17, 2006
Hazy golden. Some nice hefe notes. Rich with banana and sticky wheat. Perhaps the most banana-y hefe I’ve ever smelled. Medium bodied, good esters. More bananas in the flavor, but not too much (overripe character I’ve experienced) This is quite a decent hefe.

hair-old (181) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2006
Half way in between a crystall clear and unfiltered wheat beer.Very strange to see a Bavarian-style bannana wheat beer this far north in Germany. The Flensburger brewery has yet to disappoint me.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - APR 16, 2006
Aroma holds some slightly smokey notes at first and a bit of a hot dog water smell. Then some mild yeasty bannana aroma comes in. Cloudy yellow in color with a lasting thumb thick white head. More hot dog water int he fore and more mild smoked flavors...smoked like a little smokie..not like a Rauch. Very mild bannan notes. no spice or cloves. Has a smoked wheat grain taste that is pervasive and foreign to my palate.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - APR 11, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2006 Foggy gold. Gigantor, frothy, white head. Aroma of grainy wheat malt and subtle yeast. Same flavor. Refreshing. Medium, tingly palate. Drinkable, not exciting. It was my 6th rate of the evening, I’ll retry and rerate if necessary. ReRate on fresh palate adds a dusty, light fuitiness in both flavor and aroma.
