olio (7923) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2012
50 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours hazy colour with large white head, some large pieces of sediment on the bottom of the bottle. Aroma of herbs, mild fruity notes, yeast and sweetish wheat. Flavour of apricot, mild peach, wheat, herbal notes and some spices. Decent aroma but the flavour is a bit disappointing.

laiti (7611) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2012
50 cl bottle, BBE 30.04.2012
Aroma is sweetish and a bit floury with ripe banana and hints of floury apples. Flavour is a bit weird and watery with bubblegum and banana. Also hints of cardboard. Rather foamy palate. Drinkable.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2011
On draught at GBBF, day 3 on 3 August 2006. Hazy dark gold colour. Strong banana in the aroma. More lemony and tart on the palate with light clove and vanilla accents. Quite soft mouthfeel with some sweetness. Nonetheless, a rather decent and drinkable hefeweizen, given that I’m not a big devotee of wheat beers.

lusikka (7461) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2012
500 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A!
Pours a hazy orange colour with a small white head. Aroma of mandarin orange, floral and some perfume-like notes. Flavour of wheat, mandarin orange, banana, yeast and some light hops. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel, decent carbonation and a light finish with wheat and some light fruity notes. Very well balanced.

motelpogo (7238) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 10, 2012
Bottled. Better than average hefeweizen - lightly hazed golden with a large head; aroma of vanilla and clove; hints of corn syrup but well balanced by light citric tang and fairy floss

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2007
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle from Quinns. Cloudy yellow brown with a thin white head. Wheat, clove vanilla, estery banana and a slight salty note. Straight forward but a pretty decent weiss.

Svesse (6967) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2007
(Draught at GBBF, London, 8 Aug 2007) Pale yellow colour withe white head. Fruity nose with notes of banana, plums and a slightly citrussy wheat aroma. Fruity taste with wheat and lemon, slightly citrussy finish. Nice and balanced, but I’ve tried more exciting hefeweizen.

Bottle from Getränke Kistner in Forchheim. The beer pours out in a deep cloudy golden colour with steady head and smooth body. Aroma of yeast and bread. Taste of yeast, bread, dough, fruit sallad, cloves and wheat. Drinkable and solid Hefeweizen.
