apickles (374) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2015
Light orange and cloudy in the glass with a thick off white head. Really wheaty on the nose with some citrus. Plenty of fizz in the mouth quite creamy. Wheaty but a little sodary on the finish. No wheaty aftertaste but pretty nice.

Bockyhorsey (2626) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 8, 2015
Can 5 of my Advent calendar. Best one so far. Good mix of lemons and yeast on the nose. Yellow body with big white head and good lace. Easy drinkable beer with good lemon and bubblegum flavor. Easy on the palate and the bubblegum sweetness lingers there. Good beer

maxwelldeux (4269) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Can from Day 5 of the advent calendar. Pours a very slightly hazy golden color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose is a bit yeasty, with a bit of citrus and a hint of clove in there for me. Taste is slightly sweet with some earthiness to it. Interesting, though not an overwhelming favorite.

JaKeAFC (811) - ITALY - NOV 28, 2015
50 cl bottle from Freising. Very pale orange color, cloudy, loads of yeast, massive thick candid white head, perfumed. Aroma of thick weizen malts, dough, yeast, fruity esters (banana), starch, light spice. Sweetish taste, rather balanced by a light sourness. Creamy texture, medium to full bodied, smooth finish. Rocky malty weizen, solid.

Frank (3713) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2015
This is a pretty decent hefe. It’s very cloudy orange golden w/ thin white head and a web of lacing. It smells clovey w/ a hint of cherry at first but that wanes to a more banana-centric smell fairly quickly. This is full bodied w/ creamy carbonation and some earthy bitterness to finish. This gets better and more complex as you dig in, revealing some lavender floral tones that add a nice depth especially. Still, while this sounds good on paper, it just isn’t quite nailing it for me. It’s maybe a little too sweet and a little too bitter. It’s still a fine beer overall though.

seuinoz (188) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Brewed on 07-01-15 exprires 09-01-16. Not a bad German Weisse beer. Hazy yellow color with a small flothy white head. Citrus tasting,no need for a lemon wedge in the beer( why ruin a good beer anyway). Sits well on the palate.

chinchill (3589) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 5, 2015
500 ml can stamped on the bottom of the can with a production date of July 2015 and a EXP(iration) date of Sept. 2016. Appearance: Hazy, nearly cloudy at the pour, golden body topped with a white head of moderate (for style) size and retention that leaves patterned lacing. Aroma: Yeast and wheat with moderate banana that becomes more pronounced with warming. Fruity with relatively faint hints of spices Flavor: Lightly sweet up front and all the way into the faintly spicy, lightly fruity and bready aftertaste. Primarily yeast and wheat with banana. Hints of spices. Feel: Medium-light body and medium-high carbonation. O: very good for style. Refreshing and generally good with food.

reebtogi (5190) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 2, 2015
500ml can pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy with some wheat and light citrus and mild orange and coriander. Taste is a light grassy hop bitterness with an light orange zest tartness and a malty sweetness. Light bodied with zesty carbonation. Nice mouth feel. A well done hefeweizen that was a nice treat.

SinH4 (1601) - Garching, GERMANY - OCT 17, 2015
Hazy orange color with big fluffy white head. Aroma is yeasty-spicy, with wheat and some vanilla, the bananas are shy. Taste is bananas, doughy, a bit esthery, phenolic, with a yeasty finish that is quite dry, but a great aftertaste that is slightly warm and reflects the spiciness and the phenols. Typical silky Weizen mouthfeel. Smooth carbonation. I am very impressed, would not have expected this to be this good.
