2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Half way in between a crystall clear

to see a Bavarian-style bannana
wheat beer this far north in Germany.
