3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 11, 2003
Very clear, light yellow hue. Smells like lemons and light orange, yeasty. Smells are very crisp. Smooth on first sip, and quite a bit heavier than it looks. I enjoyed this one more than the dunkel. Flavors are middle-of-the-road and slightly sweet. Nothing outstanding, but not upsetting.

mpbro (132) - Stanford, California, USA - FEB 11, 2003
(10Feb2003--500mL bottle) Considering one can commonly find it at Safeway, the Club Weisse upholds a high level of quality. Frothy, pillowy head, medium-sized bubbles, persistent and white. Active and persistent carbonation. Light golden in color, no haze. Typical banana aroma, not cloying. Tart flavor spectrum; distinct lemon peel. Also banana/bubblegum. A strange metallic dryness nicely balances any residual sweetness, though it is a bit strange.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2003
Light straw color with a touch of haze and a typical white head. Over ripe banana aroma. Sweet wheat flavors with a heavier ester presence. Just not not sit that well.

delacerveza (157) - Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2003
is a huge, frothy puff of a head a good thing? i dunno, but this beer had the major pillow puff on top of the clear golden bubbles. and i do mean bubbles. like watching a champagne glass. surprisingly strong yeasty/banana aroma. i quite liked it. and the flavor was nearly an exact duplicate of the scent -- only with a bit of a dry aftertaste and somewhat watery body. i liked this better than franz's regular hefe.

Beautiful foamy white head over a golden brown body. Very good wheat beer.

40oz (181) - Newport Beach, California, USA - DEC 18, 2002
Clear dark golden color not unlike MGD with a creamy white head. Yeasty, banana, estery, doughy aroma. Sharp acidic, fruity, spicy taste. Not as attractive looking as the hefe version but quite tasty.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - NOV 25, 2002
Pours a clear, golden yellow with a big whit head that quickly settles down. Slightly fruity, spicy aroma that is not as strong as some other wheat beers. The beer has a very clean flavor and finishes crisp and slightly sweet. Malts, some spices, and a little bit of yeastiness comes through. Somewhat lacking in flavor for a wheat, but not too bad overall. Not as good as their regular and dunkel wheat beers.

jutuahol (189) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2002
Light golden. Huge white head with nice, slightly lace. Fruity, aromatic and banana nose, with a bit of sweet and warm malt. Tastes light, fruity, clean and sour. Medium malt, but more would be better. Aftertaste is sweet and dry malty with a bit of banana.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - OCT 14, 2002
I do miss the flavor element which the yeast imparts. Still, lovely clean appearance with plenty of banana and cloves. Very good.

This is not good. Take the taste and body from a wheat beer and this is what you get.
