COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In this classic wheat beer we use our own unique wheat yeast. This is a very refreshing beer with flavors of spice and citrus, a perfect summer beer.

Cunningham (4292) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 Bottle. Hazy light orange colour with a white head. Some banana and caramel aroma. More bitterness than sweetness in the flavour, mixed with citrus and banana. For a normal norwegian grocery store beer, this one is very good!

Alexus (240) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2011
Bottle. Pours a small with little retention. After 2-3 min it’s gone. Not as much carbonated as I expected. Hazy golden color. Smells like a typical wheat bear. Tastes like a regular wheat beer. This is a good wheat beer for being sold in the grocery store. But it’s nothing more or less than a regular wheat beer. Tastes of citrus, grass, coriander and a little candi sugar. Light to medium in body. Low in bitterness. A good thirst quencher on a warm day.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle from Fenaknoken, Oslo. Hazy light orange body, medium white head. Aroma is bananas, caramel, pale malts and hints of clove. Taste is sweet pale malts, banana and hints of clove and wheat. Low on citrus IMO. A bit thin and not too exciting, but definitely drinkable for a grocery store-level Norwegian beer.

Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2011
0.5l bottle #386 from Meny Grønland, Oslo. This one pours a deeply clouded dark orangish body with a small bubbly off-white head. The aroma is light yeasty with spicy cloves, a nice banana-sweetness and some tones of freshly cut grass. The carbonation level is surprisingly low and the mouthfeel is watery to slick. Flavors are not as sweet as the aroma, nice tones of cloves lurking behind a light yeasty and cellar-ish carpet. Ends lightly dry with some lightly burned and oxidation hints with caramel, bitter orange zest and cardboard. Not sure if it was quite supposed to taste like this fresh but this is not horrible at all. Still, I definitely prefer the big brother, Bawarian Weizen.

ABS (438) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2011
Pours orange, unclear. Medium head. Fizzy, and disappears quickly. Not that much carbonation left afterward. Nose: Banana, yeast and citrus. Similar aroma. Not that sweet for a weizen, actually got some sour and bitter notes.

tfredvik (1031) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 22, 2011
A dull looking pour: slightly hazy yellow body with a white, fizzy head that completely disappears extremely quickly, no lacing. The aroma is more promising: plenty of spices, flowers, herbs, citrus and yeast. The taste is even better: first an initial light bitterness that is soon replaced by a light sweetness with flavours of honey, followed by a light bitter aftertaste. Great! The mouthfeel on the other hand is not that convincing: the body feels too light and the texture is close to watery. Soft carbonation. Still, a nice hefeweizen. [50 cl bottle (mishandled, i.e. placed upside-down in by backpack), batch 299, from Meny, Grønland, Oslo]

esp0r (1890) - NORWAY - MAR 24, 2011
Bottle. Yellow, almost clear. White head. Smells of melon, banan and citrus. Some yeast and flours. Taste is sweet with alot of wheat malts. Some citrus acids too. Feel is a bit syrupy. Finish is not very bitter, but balances well. A beer that is for hot summer days.
