FatPhil (9627) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 26, 2009
Rich cloudy orange, brief head. Toffee aroma, fruity too. Pleasant carbonation. Very full wheaty taste, plenty of grains, and pleasant hops too. Crisp. Finish is a clean wheaty hoppiness, and the toffee’s there too. Quite standard weisse, but I do like the formula, this is a good example.

harrisoni (14139) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2008
500ml bottle bought at GBBF 08 and drunk at home. Hazy paleish gold with a rocky white head. Green apple and banana estery aroma. Some wheat on aroma too. Its an alright weisse, nothing outstanding, competent just lacks a little character, the swallow is a little dull, but then spicy hoppy finish. Yes the spice on the finish is very good, rest is competent enough.

Bottle. Hazy golden with a white rocky foam. Aromas are sweet wheat malts, dry with light banana and spices. Hoppy with some nuttiness. Flavours are yeasty and dry with smooth wheat. Dry on the finish. Quite refreshing but lacks complexity.

thewolf (11260) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2008
Bottle. [thank you, faroeviking]
Pours golden with a slight haze. A big, mostly staying, white, frothy head. Okay bubbly liquid. Aroma has some metal, banana, lemons, grainy wheat and apples. High carbonation, rather thin. Flavour is rather weak, some metal harshness because of the high carbonation. SUbdued sweetness.

Bottle at Quinns. Aroma is yeasty, estery, rotten fruit, wheaty. Taste is again yeasty estery, the wheat seems somewhat old as theres a dusty character.
