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.

eaglefan538 (2943) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 29, 2007
Swing top bottle, Knightly Spirits. Poured a hazy but not cloudy or sediment-laden amber color, nice large head, solid retention and lacing. The aroma was caramel, some bread, some grass, not much ester-phenolic character. The flavor was caramel, light bananas, bready notes, some hay, and an aftertaste that was kinda metallic-cherry-like, much like the aftertaste cherries leave behind, reminded me of the San Miguel aftertaste. The latter was certainly odd relative to the style, but not a bad thing if you’re flexible enough when grabbing one of these. The mouthfeel was moderate, not hearty and filling enough for a hefe, but decent.

thedm (5140) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 1, 2007
This flippy top bottled brew from a bottle shop marked 07 10 06 lot 214521 poured a very large sized head of foamy off-white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a hazy orange brown colored body and thick foamy lacing. The aroma was mild malt mild hop wheat and dough. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt mild hops and wheat. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

almosi (282) - Viña del Mar, CHILE - MAR 26, 2007
(in can, 50 cl.) The very good aspect, is of a dirty and cloudy golden color. The head is big, smooth and white. The aroma is fruit-bearing, banana and many yeast. It knows to a malt of a bit sweet wheat. The carbonation is good and has an average body. Probably the wheat is very salient in this beer.

hotstuff (4403) - Indiana, USA - MAR 20, 2007
Flip-top bottle with a date on it of 07.10.06. Large white head that mostly diminished, minimal lacing, visible carbonation, cloudy, and a golden hue. Nose was banana, clove, spicy, wheat, and malt. Flavor was wheat, spicy, a tad bit of clove, and somewhat dry tasting. Mouthfeel was fairly smooth, semi-thin and rather dry. Light body. This is one of my favorite beer styles, but it just didn’t stack up to the many, many others of this style that I have rated. It was decent, but not outstanding.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 9, 2007
Bottle. Nice hazy yellow with an amazingly big long lasting white head. Aroma of malt and wheat, bit sweet with some banana and good fruitiness. Flavour is fresh and bit crispy, good wheat, sweet, banan with a good fruitiness, bit of hops. Wheaty with a slight bitterness in the fnish. Very tasty Hefeweizen!

BBB63 (6449) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2007
The 3rd in the series of flip top bottles, served in weizen glass of course: The pours displays true weizen characteristics of cloudy golden hue topped by a lasting thick frothy head and excellent lacing. The nose detects banana, lemongrass, and clove yeast esters along with wheat and grainy malts. The taste starts with a slight fruity twang and some wheat overtones supported by a healthy dose of allspice (not really clove like). The finish is dryer than most weizens and is even a bit chalky. The mouth feel has soft persistent carbonation and is too dry for the style making it not as refreshing as the better examples of the genre. Well more than a solid brew it is lacking the body and roundness on the palate to be something I would like the drink on a regular basis.
