2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml swing top bottle, poured into a weizen glass. ABV 5.1%
Orange colour on the body, white on the two fingers tall head. Soapy, with good retention and no lacing on the glass.
Wheat on the aroma and light bubblegum.
Nice refreshing taste, fruity with wheat being more present on the aftertaste.
Thin body, average carbonation.
Overall a very drinkable beer, makes you craving for the next sip.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013
Cloudy hazy light amber brown colour with dusty sediments; One finger head with white foam which last for about 1 minute; Small lacing and notable carbonation; Good aroma of banana, citrus, malt and spices; Very light sweet taste of malt, yeast, clove and grass; Mid to light body, oily palate, with mouth feel dominated by light malt, yeast with cardboard background, which is quite odd for a weizen but at such low level which is not uncomfortable; Hoppiness is minimal and shows up very briefly near the end but not as a finish. Fairly dry and tart after taste, very easy to mouth.
Comments: a really average hefeweiss. Initially it has the right looks and smells, but the taste lacks dimension and excitement. The cardboard palate, albeit low, is pretty disappointing. Not bad, but not recommended.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Unusually dry and crispy weissbier. In the aftertaste comes the familiar yeast tones up, but it does not quite meet the Bavarian classics.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at St Gertrud, Malmö. Nice bottle, pours hazy and golden. Typical hefe character with cloves, foam bananas and citrus. Sweet and sour, spicy and full of character which makes it one of the better ones I’ve tried.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light amber and slightly cloudy. Tastes wheaty and yeasty with a hint of fruitiness...citrusy pineapple. Reminded me a bit of Kolsch more than Heife, but enjoyed it as a fizzy refresher.
