KnutAlbert (6013) - Oslo, - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle from a Munich supermarket. Cloudy brown. It is a very true to type Bavarian Hefeweisse, dyed brown. There is nothing wrong with this. But I am getting bored.

Bue en bouteille de 50cl. Une dunkelweisse parfaitement réussie. On sent le grain et une pointe de banane en finale.

superspak (2411) - Michigan, USA - JUN 30, 2014
500 ml bottle into weizen glass, best before 10/2014. Pours hazy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big banana, orange, pear, apple, clove, bubblegum, herbal, grass, wheat, toasted bread, light caramel, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of banana, orange, pear, apple, clove, bubblegum, wheat, toasted bread, light caramel, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Slight wheat tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of banana, orange, pear, apple, clove, bubblegum, wheat, toast, light caramel, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast, bready malt, and light hop flavors; with a great yeast/malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice hefeweizen style. All around nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast, bready malt, and light hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

weihenweizen (1608) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Refrigerated 0.5 L brown fliptop poured into a weizen glass. Pours translucent tawny with deep golden hightlight and small beige head. Aroma is bready, medium body, medium/low carbonation, and good small bubble lacing. Taste is bready, some banana, and some caramel.

popery (1348) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Pours a glowy amber brown color. Very cloudy. The head built up nicely on the initial pour into a tall weizen glass, but it faded rather quickly after the glass was full, leaving a scant few bubbles just on the surface of the beer. To be fair, my memory for lacing isn’t incredible, so I don’t really know how that compares to other hefes. Bready, wheaty aroma. Nice wheat spice. Some lemony flavor. Moderate banana. Mild clove. Some caramel. Similar taste. Very mild citrus tartness with a lot of wheat and malt sweetness. Not too big on banana, though it is kicking around. Bit stronger with the clove. Good deal of simple sweetness. Finishes with a funny bitter note, possibly from all that yeast kicking around. Carbonation is a bit low for a hefe. Mouthfeel is generally sorta flat and thin. It just doesn’t have the velvety rich feel of top examples. Not bad, not great. Probably better before it left home.

Blairgus (2544) - California, USA - JUN 29, 2014
29 June 2014, bottle. Light brown and a bit cloudy. Nose is faint banana, sweet yeast, some green pepper. Med body and mildly fizzy. Yeasty, orange, banana, toasty bread. Ok.

jcr (2165) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy amber with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of sweet malts, banana, bubble gum, toasted bread, clove. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly to moderately acidic. Medium body, watery turning syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Tart finish. Taste of banana and bubble gum, toasted grain. Slight metallic aftertaste.

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle: Cloudy, light brown with a huge, frothy, vanilla head. Soft banana, clove, baked bread aroma. Taste is light, caramel, banana, spice, sweet fruit...malty. Pretty tasty....but very light and slightly watery.

RaduLuchian (39) - München, GERMANY - APR 29, 2014
Brown cloudy body, light carbonation and creamy head typical of a Weissbier. Fruity, grainy taste leaves a slight alcohol aftertaste, but not very noticeable. Had less consistency than expected, but it’s ok as a "light" Weissbier.
