StuffWine (137) - Perth, - DEC 22, 2012
Poured a fizzy clear yellow with a big creamy head that lasted well. Aroma of grass, herbs, yeast, light and refreshing. Tast also refreshing, slight sour lemon, phenols, vanilla, mixed with the wheat, followed by a long soft bitter finish. Palate medium to full bodied, creamy. Overall refreshing on a hot day (smacks lips).

The most availabe white beer over here. Good citrus and coriander flavours make it a good choice after a warm day.

Rex_Remes (53) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - APR 14, 2015
(330cc bottle) Aroma: Sweet, bubble gum. some yeast, touch of banana and ginger/tobacco. Appearance: medium-light yellow/straw color, mildly cloudy, white foam, not too much of a head and it goes away pretty quick. Taste: Very unique flavor. Some sweetness, but more on the tart side, citrus, maybe some herbal/ginger notes, nutmeg, grass. Palate: quite fizzy on the palate at first, a bit oily/creamy but not much fullness, but very crisp, with bitter follow-thru. Overall: one of my favorite beers, always enjoyable. Goes with hot or cold weather, and various foods.

Wonderful fruity and yeasty smell. Reminds me of fresh bread dough. Best when really cold.

Carlisle (163) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2015
Bottle. Pours opaque gold with thick bright white head and some lacing. Wheat and citrus aroma with hint of coriander. Bright orange-citrus up front with fruity and yeasty malt. Hints of coriander and bready malt in the finish. Long finish sticks to your mouth. Refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

anstei (163) - SWITZERLAND - APR 10, 2015
330ml bottle. A welcome change to all the fake pilsner which are actually lager here in Bali. Nothing special, but definitely an OK beer.

Drank from a bottle. Very nice, very weizen. The taste is fresh and has at least banana and citrus. Looks really good.

Probably a good beer, but not my taste. Not tasteful, very bland. Looks awful to me as well.
