rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - JUL 4, 2012
0.5l bottle from LCBO. Pours a very cloudy pale orange, with a frothy white head. Lots of carbonation. Lighter colour near the bottom. Aroma: Very spicy, very wheaty. Kinda skunky. Smells more like a belgian wit than a hefeweizen. Palate: Medium bodied, extremely fizzy, and very astringent for a hefeweizen. Gives it a slight sour tinge, but makes it feel kinda off to me. Maybe it was just sitting on the LCBO’s shelves for half a year. Taste: Sweet, kinda flat. Not much flavour here, but it’s not awful. Probably helps that it feels like 44C outside. Add some lemon and it can’t be bad at all. (Definitely one of the worst hefeweizen’s i’ve had though)

Bottle from Supervalu, Longford [300515]
Blonde, hazy, frothy white head
Aroma of sweet malts, light clove, soft fruits, light aromatic
Taste of soft clove, light sweet malts, soft wheat, soft pale fruits, mellow yeast, soft esters, no banana here
Palate - Soft carb, medium body. Finish as main flavour.
Overall - Easy going, soft hefe, not too much ’banana and clove’ which I like

allmyvinyl (5767) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2015
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours hazy yellow gold, short-lived white head. Banana and clove aromas. Sweet taste, almost too sweet. Prickly carbonation lifts it clear though. Spicy linger.

lello4ever (220) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
Weizen del tedesco Höss der Hirschbräu, si tratta di una normale birra di frumento con una spiccata frizzantezza. Niente di particolare da segnalare, di certo non spicca.

kajser27 (192) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 14, 2015
Hazy golden, white non lasting white head. Aroma of cloves, little banana and more bread but not very strong. Taste is wheat malt and weakish banana and bread. Light bodied and somewhat watery. I’d say standard Hefeweizen without any wow factor.

WABeerFiend (306) - - JAN 16, 2015
Poured into a weizen glass in late 2013. A: Beautiful fluffy head. Yellow/orange body, opaque with yeast at top, see through at bottom. S: Wheat, citrus, slight banana. T: Wheat, citrus, very slight banana. Subtle, sweet yeast on the back end. Some apple, lemon. M: Very, very smooth. O: This one is very subtle and light as a feather. I do prefer stronger flavors in hefs than this one had, though.

EdKing (2101) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle from Munich Airport. Pale yellow to golden, little bit of haze, huge foam head. Nose isn’t hugely pleasant. There’s pale wheat grain, some creaminess, spice, estery banana, but something a bit stringent like nylon. Taste is decent though. Banana, wheat grain and pale malt, spice, creaminess, vanilla. My only complaint is it’s a touch on the watery side.

Me l’avevano fatta passare per una grande weizen, invece è solo una normalissima weizen...
