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.

Pours pale hazy gold with a big loose head. Wheat and CO2 aroma. Mild wheat flavor with a tart finish. Tastes like a cross between a German Hefe and US Wheat.

I enjoyed this one, pouring a hazy straw body with a humongous spongy head that collapsed in on itself very slowly. It smelled of bubblegum, soft wheat, banana, and the merest suggestion of clove. Alas, a bit thin, but the flavor was decent, more of the banana and wheat than in the nose. It finishes on a very mildly tart lemon twist. They should sell this closer to home. An ideal warm weather brew.

Hazed straw yellow, enormous, staying snow-white head. Pretty nose, wide open, sweet banana chimes in, minor spice...nice. Taste: gooood...if...un-remarkable. Clean, quenching, but lacks any zest. Nice texture, adequate body, long, yeasty finish. Missing something, though. Zing...zap...something like that.. Easy-drinking, lemon is awake now...but still a bit too dull for me to revisit. Solid, middle of the road Bavarian Weizen. Nuttin’ wrong with that.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2006
330ml bottle. I had high expectations on this one, due to the complexity of its brother Dunkel. The colour is very strange - golden hazy. The aroma is standard with nothing special jumping out of it. Strong in taste, not many bubbles. There’s something here that’s not quite right. The bitterness and absence of roundness, not typical for a wheat beer. tbone’s experiences seem similar to mine, but this bottle is almost fresh. I will return, but to the dunkel one.

Øl (50 cl.) købt i Tyskland. Øllen er tis-gul og ufiltreret. Har naturlig frugtagtig og let gær smag som weizenbeer har og fylder godt i munden. Skummet er hvidt og tæt. Virker stærere end andre weizenbeer. Duften er sødlig og en anelse gærret. En af de bedre weizenbeer jeg kender.

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

yayforbeer (752) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2006
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 (12477) - 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.
