Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2005
Bottle. Muddy orange colour with a big off-white head. Spicy wheaty, banana aroma and a very wheaty light banana taste. Medium body and a light dry finish.

Ungstrup (31473) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2005
An unclear orange-brown beer with a huge white head. The aroma is sweet and extremely wheaty - with powerful notes of banana. The flavor is extremely sweet with powerful notes of banan and wheat. It is as if more than 50% of the malt are wheat malt - a little too much banana for me.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2005
Cloudy orange coloured. Typical yeasty wheat beer. Sweet banana finish. Not a good wheat at all.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Huge, blossoming white head--imagine an albino mushroom cloud!--stands over a dark orange brew. Intensely aromatic from far-off: principally citrus, flowers and honey. Perfectly fits the Bavarian wheat style as I understand it, but where does the "winter" part come in? The brewery specializes in wheats, or should I say "weisbier specialitaten", as it says on the label, but no further information is given about this "winter wheat" business, or what the heck a "Schneewalter" is. Thirst-quenching, delicious, substantial, and sweet. Quite good, but I can’t find what ought to set it apart from other Bavarian wheats.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 5, 2004
Hazy brownish yellow with fading head and some lace. The aroma hints of banana, clove, wheat bread, lemon, orange, and zesty yeast esters. The taste starts very fruity and spicy with the yeast character upfront. While the citrus is still subdued, it is more noticeable than found in the Kristal. The twangy sour finish. The mouthfeel is lively and yet smooth across the palate. Just a step below the great hefes, but enough depth to make it quite quaffable and it’s priced about $2 less a bottle than the big boys.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - NOV 28, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2003 A touch hazy dark golden color with a diminishing head that left a layer of tiny bubbles forming on the surface like some Belgian ales. Very fruity aroma that reminded me more than anything of apples on the ground in an orchard, with plum and banana notes. Tangy on the tongue, with a toffee sweetness and a yeasty sourness, lemony and acidic with a dryish not much on it finish. I think this one had a little age on it but it was still hanging in there.

JK (5331) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2004 Copper color. Large white head. Heavily carbonated with lots of bubbles, and the yeast is clearly visible in large pieces. Darker than many hefeweizens. Mild aroma of flowers and some wheat. Great flavor. Banana, clove, some citrus, and very sweet malt. A quality wheat.

hotstuff (4532) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2003
I did not find anything unique about this German Wheat. It poured a white head with fine-small bubbles. The body was cloudy and the color reminded me of cider. It had an aroma of clove to it and there was no lacing on the sides of my glass at all. There was carbonation observed with this brew. Nothing really stood this particular German Wheat apart from others that I have rated.

This brew pours a large head of fine to large off-white bubbles that leave very little lacing. It has a carbonated cloudy light brown body. I smell a little citrous in the aroma. The tase is citrousy too with notes of banana, spice and clove. I'll eave it at that.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2003
Intense banana and spice aroma. Extremely hazy brown, pours a large tight head, a few floaties. Some banana, hint of cloves, but I'd like more. Pleasant mouth feel, dry finish. A good example, but the aroma and appearance promised more.
