COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Typical in its wheat beer aroma, this classic wheat beer has a slightly fruity taste, is golden yellow in colour and a light yeast haze, topped by a fine head. Its unique character is thanks to Hopf’s own pure yeast culture.

Douberd (2953) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2014
Bottle 500 ml at home, into a weizen glass. ABV 5.3% Clear body, light golden orange in colour, with a huge white head, thick, with very good retention. Medium lacing on the glass. Aroma of bananas, bubblegum, wheat, Nice taste, what one expects from a hefeweizen, lots of bananas, bubblegum especially on the aftertaste and quite a bit of clove on the finish. Medium body, carbonation on the right levels. Overall pretty decent and honest, and very drinkable.

500ml bottle from Bierzwerg@home. Hazy yellowish orange appearance with foamy white head. Aroma has wheat and banana with some bubblegum and citrus. Taste is lightly sour and sweet.

Silvan7 (802) - Samarate, ITALY - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle @ Roadhouse Grill Gallarate (va) Italy. Colore giallo paglierino carico con riflessi dorati. schiuma bianca abbondante abbastanza fine, decisamente persistente. profumo classico di frumento, fruttato elegante, tra la banana e la mela golden. Gusto armonico, piuttosto equilibrata, non molto alcolica e non molto amara. Di corpo debole. si rivela beverina e dissetante. Ottimo il retrolfattivo.

adnielsen (9709) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle @ home, ordered from Craftshack. There was a massive amount of sludge near the lip of the bottle. Pours a milky light yellow orange appearance with a nice, creamy white head. Quite bready and spicy yeasty, lime, lemon, light bubblegum aroma. Somewhat metallic, dull bready yeasty, chewy malty, wheat, lemon, banana, herbal flavor with a touch of tartness and light oxidization on the finish. Not drink by date on the bottle but this tastes pretty dated.
