motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 19, 2012
On tap at Popeyes, summer ’08, first of a sample tray. Murky yellow with a lasting thin head; aroma of vanilla and banana with a slightly fishy, salty edge that is enticing; hints of lactic sourness, some bubblegum and a surprisingly dry finish. Quality stuff

EdKing (2391) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2011
Draught in Yokohama care of Tim Maloney. Cloudy yellow weizen with medium to large white foamy head. Nose is yeasty, lemon, clove, wheat, bubble gum, apple and grainy cereal. Sorry and a big hit of bananas in there! Taste is all of the above. As with most Japanese weizens the beer is very light and possibly lacks a bit of body but the fantastic nose and flavours make up for it.

Ernest (7318) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Rated in Apr 2008. Head is mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of banana and clove. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. A solid, clean rendition.

laiti (8069) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2011
Draught @ Bakushu Club Popeye, Tokyo. Rated on 05.09.2011
Looks like basic weizen. Aroma has sweetish banana, something stale and wheat notes. Palate is surprisingly low on CO2. Flavour is slightly sour, and somewhat weird. It has hints of solvent and no banana whatsoever. One weird weizen and not really nice. Might have been a bad keg now that I’ve seen other ratings.

tmoreau (3700) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2011
500 ml. sample bottle, poured to my 10 oz. tasting glass with a very clear, light golden hue, effervescent, rising bubbles, abundant, white bubbles and froth head foam, that slowly reduced to a persistent 1/2 inch layer, and wavy lacing. The aroma was light wheat and yeast, some candy sweetness, banana, hints of background spice as clove, and some complimentary bubblegum hints. The flavor added lively carbonation and light hop bitterness in a light bodied, but crisp and exceptionally sessionable brew. I was very impresssed by the light but very flavorful aspects, but also by the longevity of quality since first cellared back in April.

Tim Webb (350) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2010
Bottle bought from the brewery and shipped within Japan. Now styled is English as Fujzakura Heights Beer. Unspiced, not massively chewy and not much yeast-borne banana but the most authentic tasting Weizenbier I can recall outside Bavaria.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2010
Pours a hazy yellow color with a medium white head. Appealing aroma of bananas, yeast and cloves. Very good flavor of bananas, cloves and yeast. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and soft carbonation. This is a weizen done right.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 15, 2009
Mondial 2009. THanks to Dany for the reccomendation. Solid Hefe. Pours a nice very light golden- hazy and a nice foamy soapy head. Aroma is phenolic, light soap, lemon zest, peppery, modest clove- ok fruity esters, banana, and doughy wheat. Flavor is spritzy with lemon, lime hints, toasted malts, wheat, dough, phenolic spices, and good fruity esters banana- clove hints of vanilla, but seems a bit on the thin side as it warms up and the yeast itself doens tplay as much of a role in the body. Pretty solid though and very well made. Nice stuff.
