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.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUL 27, 2012
Pours a cloudy orange colour with a head that disappears a bit too fast. Aroma of citrus, pine and some yeast. Taste is pine ans citrus again, very similar to the nose, no supprises. Nice aftertaste of wheat. Conclusion is that this is a solid wheatbeer, and for a 4,7 % this quite amazing.

tmrmwel (1231) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle, batch 444. Pours a hazy, matte yellow, with a finger thick head. Aroma is sweet, with yeast and orange. Flavour is sour-ish of citrus and yeast, with a malty sweetness of honey, toffee and bread. Finishes of with a nice acidic yeast and lemony citrus.

I found this to be a very respectable Hefeweizen. When compared to the big guns, I found it held up quite well. It looks, smells and tastes like a Hefeweizen, what more do you want?

Splitenz (338) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2012
A fine, if somewhat bland experience. However, if i had this on a warm summer day, the experience would probably have been more favourable. HaandBryggeriet delivers time and time again, so some higher marks comes from that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mostly sweet, but a bit of bitterness as well. Aromas include banana and wheat and yeast, medium bodied. Golden beer with a small white head. (Bottle)

Alexus (241) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2011
Bottle. Pours a small with little retention. After 2-3 min itís 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 itís 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.
