ComradeK (1067) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold, with a small, loose white head, which fades rapidly and leaves no lace. The aroma is pretty stock-standard weizen - estery banana and some cloves. To taste it is a little sour initially, moving into a sweet and slightly bland body. The finish is a little cloying, but with some pleasant musk notes to redeem it. This is a fairly average weizen, nothing more.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2011
Surprisingly dark in color, almost amber with a quickly vanishing off-white head. Citrus-like aroma with notes of orange, lemon and peach and ripe banana and a little seasoning. Semi-sweet malt base, but dry and wheaty finish. Lively carbonation. It’s odd that the name of the beer is German, as it tastes and smells almost Belgian, with a funky norwegian twist. I quite like it.

esp0r (2302) - NORWAY - MAY 29, 2011
Tap at Amundsen. Orange hazy, thick white head. Smells of citrus, banana and yeasts. Body is maybe a bit too malty but has good sweetness/acid balance. Finish is not very hoppy. A good weizen that also will work as a good thirst killer

Koelschtrinker (12187) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 22, 2011
Erfrischend fruchtiger Antrunk mit spritzuger Gefe. Vollmundig, die Bananigkeit ist angenehm herb. Später dezent bitter, weiter vollmundig und ausgewogen. Gut! 10/11/12/11//11

Palme (3604) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2011
0.5l bottle @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a light cloudy deep golden body with a small dense lasting white head. Aroma is sweet - almost caramel sweet with notes of hay, cloves thin yeast and some ripe banana. Medium bodied, has a oily texture and the carbonation level is medium+. Nice and refreshing wheat flavors with notes of cloves, flowers and ripe bananas. Finishes of wheaty with a orange-zest aftertaste. Nice weiz from Drammen. In some types of these german hefeweizen I get a distinct orange-soda-like flavor in the aftertaste. This is one of those. I quite like it, but if feels kinda strange to drink a hefeweizen and in the aftertaste it feels like you have been drinking a orange soda.
