One Weisse one the Premiumklasse. This speciality is brewed using select raw materials. The special prescription, fine yeast and the traditional original bottle fermentation garatieren highest benefit.

MesandSim (7119) - 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.

rosenbergh (7011) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 15, 2011
500 ml bottle. From bierzwerg.de.
Cloudy golden colour with big white fluffy head. Lively. Fruity aroma with apple, marmalade, wheat, mild spices and mild yeast in aroma. Smooth flavour of sweetish fruitiness, apple, mild bitterness, mild spices and nice yeastiness. Some resemblance with Belgian Ale yeastiness. Smooth and pleasant Weiße.

motelpogo (6700) - 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

lusikka (6340) - 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.

olio (6273) - 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.

Svesse (6174) - 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.

laiti (5753) - 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.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2006
Aroma is clove, banana, wheat and yeast. Taste is similar though it seems to just disapear, like the glass was definatly filled at one point and now its empty, but how?

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2006 Bottle. Dry, wheaty/grainy, with some light banana esters, some peanuts. Not very complicated or anything, but nice and refreshing. Re-Rate: draught@GBBF 06’ : nice clovey banana character, smooth and clovey, quite nice. a little better than my previous bottled sample.
