Boutip (4494) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2012
Bottle: poured a cloudy slightly dirty golden color ale with a super large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of banana ester is quite strong with some light wheat malt notes and light cloves as well. Taste is a nice mix between some banana ester with light wheat malt and some subtle cloves notes. Body is a bit too light for style with great carbonation. I really enjoyed the ester but the body and malt backbone was too light and seems to miss a bit of the yeasty finish that I usually enjoy in this style.

SlovakSniper (2812) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 17, 2012
50 cl. Batch 423. Une bière meilleure avant le 25.11.12. À l’ouverture, une petite éruption volcanique. Dans le verre, une robe dorée qui s’embrouille. Une tête blanche qui monte en flèche pour retomber aussi rapidement. Un nez très peu stimulant qui est fait de blé, de banane, de grains et de légumes. Des saveurs de grains, de levure et d’herbes qui sont loin de convaincre mes papilles. Un corps qui me semble être du côté obscur de la minceur avec des bulles franchement forcées et une texture qui n’est cependant jamais aqueuse. Une finale dans laquelle des grains et des herbes laissent une trace débilitante sur ma langue.

rodenbach99 (2968) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2012
Style et résumé: Hefe weizen goutant trop le pain acide.
Comment: Bouteille de 50cl. De la Batch 423 brassée le 25.11.11 et meilleur avant le 25.11.12. par IPB.
Description: Bière dorée avec une belle mousse blanche. Le nez est acide avec du blé, beaucoup de blé. La bouche est tout aussi méchante avec des notes de pain blanc et de levure. Vraiment mauvais.
Note: 4/10

visionthing (2395) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2012
50cl bottle at Glød. Pours slightly hazy golden with a nice white head. Yeasty aroma with fruit, malt and hints of spices. Lightly dry and yeasty finish. Quite nice, but not so hefeweizen in my opinion. Still - nice and refreshing. (2012-08-02)

tfredvik (942) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2012
Medium yellow to orange body that is cloudy with some really huge lumps ending up in the bottom of my glass. The head is fit for a hefeweizen: it’s large, creamy and rocky, white, long-lived and leaves lots of lacing. An inviting sweet aroma, but a bit vaguer than I’d hoped for. Light fruity notes, banana, spices, citrus yeast and dust. Light to moderate sweet taste that is almost drowned in a moderate acidity and a moderate bitterness. Isn’t this a quite unusual interpretation of the style? I mean, with all this acidity and bitterness? But I like it! It’s very refreshing and crisp, although a bit demanding. Moderate flavours with lots of acidic citric notes, perfume, fruits (but the banana notes are very faint) and spices, and actually hints of fermented apple. Medium body (finally a hefeweizen that isn’t watery!), dry texture with a moderate dry finish and medium to lively carbonation. A good one, but I feel a good hefeweizen should be a bit more easy-to-drink than this?

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 30, 2012
from Erzbierschof - cloudy orange beer under a firm white head; estery with notes of fresh bananas; gentle spicy tones below; subtle but fair carbonation; slightly acidic; lively and tasty; the finish is chewy and fruity with light spicy tones

magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 10, 2012
Courtesy of Erzbierschof. 50cl bottle, bottled 2010, a month from expiry. Pours a cloudy yellow with visible chunks of brown yeast, and a white head; a gusher. Smells of banana, clove, citrus peel, and yeast. Tastes sweet, with a mild tang, and a bit like some cookies. Texture is creamy smooth, with a medium body, and soft-but-active carbonation.

Stew41 (1663) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - DEC 17, 2011
I thought this carried a surprising amount of palate weight despite the relatively modest 5.5%. Plenty of spice and aniseed wrapped up in a thick flavour profile. Finish is really quite bitter and almost tangy.
