Rune (8493) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2014
Vom fass, 5.2 % abv, at the brewpub, 500ml shared with Finn. Creamy white head leaving nice lacework on the glassware. Unclear apricot coloured body, Aroma of fruity wheat, hints of yeast. Wheat and mid-sweet banana flavours followed by a little fruity yeastiness. Rather well bodied. Okay weizen (Bamberg 12.10.2014).

Fra fat på bryggeripuben 12 Okt 14. Aprikosfarget. Uklar. Bra skum som daler sakte. God aroma av mandarin. Smaken har preg av banan og sitrus. Passe søt.

Soft orange and banana aroma. Some grainy character, moderately sweet. Not getting much yeast character compared to the other hefes I’ve had. Reminds me of an American wheat beer.

Theydon_Bois (9946) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2012
Tap at the Brauhaus beer garden - 28/04/12. Cloudy orange with a small white head. Wheat and banana on the nose. Wheat, banana, clove all present in the taste a little sweet than other beers of this style but tempered with a little citrus in the finish. Medium carbonation and a good enough hefeweizen.

Rated at Greifenklau Nov 2011. Head is mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), with a note of banana, light note of old cotton. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Overly sweet, not much acidity to balance, dull aroma. Not very good.

En fût. Pinte dégustée directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur de céréales et de bananes. Apparence: La couleur est orangée voilée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de céréales, de bananes et d’agrumes. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de bananes en arrière goût. (Rating #3843)

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
My Bottom Line :
This effective Weizen puts crunchy wheat alongside banana esters for a lean and drinkable example of the style.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A slice of foam covers the cloudy yellow gold.
-The prickly effervescence works with the easygoing sugars.
-The flavor profile is quite simple, revealing all it has to offer after a couple of sips.
-This was not as sweet as the average Weizen.

At the brewery gasthof.
