Eructoblaster (3059) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2004
On tap at Zum Franziskaner, Stockholm. Nice cloudy golden/orange body topped with a thick foamy head. Typical yeasty aroma with spicy and citrusy notes. Taste is fresh and well balanced. Various flavors of yeast, banana, citrus and spices. Ends with a good hoppy finish. Good example of German Weizen.

An above average good german Weisbier. Its refreshing, but lacks a bit of temperment. It’s lazy, but still my daily favorite over a pilsner.

A bit boring, typical cloudy golden with white fine head. Nose was a bit skunky, mouth was watery, clean finish. I think I nedded a fresher one, unfortunately I still have four skuny ones. hmmm. Maybe I’ll revisit.

Another good hefeweizen beer, not as good as I was expecting. The initial flavor provides great complexity with warming depth. As the beer settles / warms, there’s diminished character. Flavors remain consistent, instead of wildly diverse and exciting. Recommended, but try enough other German offerings and you will be sure to find one much better.

hayduke (3385) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 3, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2006 Bottle. Good gold color, decent head for the type. Lemon tinge below the hops. Odd aroma. Decent brew, but seemed a little lacking in overall balance. I guess I am just not a big Hef fan. Note: I drink this on draft this time in Eisenach, Germany . Very different from the bottle I drank before so maybe it was bad lat time. This time it was clean and a cloudy gold, with a big white head. Good nose, and very refreshing. Nice flavor of spices and fruit. I am re-rating this.

Excellent hefeweizen. Like all of that type, it’s quite heavy. Good aroma, great taste, very refreshing. Doesn’t need a lemon to survive, unlike others of its ilk.

jimmack (1222) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Cloudy gold color with a medium size white head. Aroma of wheat, cloves and banana. Flavor of wheat, yeast, cloves, banana and citrus. Somewhat tart. Nice and refreshing.

Gorbalev (2927) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2004
Bottle. Golden colour, small white head. Odd wheat like aroma, slightly citrusy. Some malt base in taste with a crispy mouthfeel and a little hoppiness at the end, but otherwise, pretty average really - enjoyable, but not something I would reach for again. Thanks for sharing jercraigs.

piscator34 (1974) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 28, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2006 Hazy medium gold in colour. Clove and banana aroma, with perhaps a bit more weight on the clove side of things. Surprisingly rich texture and full flavors of vanilla, banana, clove, and yeast. Long lasting head too. Very nice indeed
