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.

Beer pours clear, golden color with the expected big, totally retained egg white head. Aroma is wheaty with light banana and clove. Flavor is also a bit on the light side. Flavor of wheat and a decent spicy finish. Hefe Light.

Not great but not terrible. Refeshing with a good wheaty flavor but overall it’s just average. There’s a ton of other wheat beers to choose from that I’d pick first. One and done.

Well, that’s a German hefe. Importing their water is unusual. Has the wheaty flavor, but not too much yeast. Not bad, just not that interesting.

The aroma has malt, bananas, cloves, and yeast. The appearance is lightly hazed gold with a medium head. The flavor is malty and somewhat sour and acidic, with the usual banana and clove associated with the style. However this is not the best example of the style. The palate is thin but smooth. Overall I like it but don’t like the taste 100%.

Flensburger hefe- from my notes. Pours a more traditional hefeweizen color of a deep gold, very light amber, cloudy and a nice fluffy head. Aroma is fruity esters like banana, along with a pretty decent balance of spicy clove phenols. Wheaty flavro, good full body, creamy and lightly sweet with an herbal hop finish.

Bottle. Dark honey body with a thick foamy lasting head. Nose-banana, spice, lotion, orange hand soap. Taste-black pepper, artificial banana, citric pith, wheaty. Has the usual flavored associated with wheats (banana, clove, phenols), but they are nicely restrained (I normally don’t like those flavors). Mildly thin. Refreshing.

flip tops are cool...one for the collection and all others recycle to the homebrew case. pours a hazy golden color with a thick, off-white, frothy head and has a nose as well as taste full of citrus with a nice corn flakes with slices of banana overtone. smooth drinking weizen that i look forward to having again.

I love these small 0,33L swing-top bottles, perfect fit for the hand. Calls itself the "northernmost Wheat" beer in the country, which has secondary meaning for beer geeks - let’s see if it lives up to those standards. Pours a hazy golden with a rich, lacing white head. Aroma of yeast, wheat, banana, and cloves. Taste full of wheat, yeast, and banana. Touch of lemon and orange. Light spiciness. Medium body, citric tartiness in the middle- and endgame. Slightly oily. Nice dry, tart, wheaty finish. I think my next wheat beer will have a little more Southern Charm.

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.
