Svane Hvede is refreshing, fruity, and full of inviting notes of citrus, banana, and cloves. Enjoy it as a thirst quencher for workdays and parties. Put it on the table when you want to make your lunch even better or serve it with light dishes from the Danish summer kitchen. The recipe is from Bayern, where our brewmaster Stefan Peter Stadler was educated as a brewer 30 years ago. Serve the beer directly from the refrigerator. Serve the beer in wheat beer glasses and take your time serving it. Shake the last of the beer before pouring.

Murky, carbonated banana juice. Smells like banana, other boring plain fruits, malt, malt and cane sugar. Taste of ripe bananas, dung ridden straw and mummifies your throat in a soft coating of sugar. Will not write home about this.

Fairly standard wheat beer, but without particularly Belgian or German notes...

It has close creamy foam, and a slightly darker shade than expected. It smells and tastes nice of wheat malts typical freshness of newly harvested grains and coriander and banana notes. Some hefe might be a little too sweet in length, but this has a slightly hoppy end to smooth out the sweetness in the finish. Light spicy notes are present in the aftertaste and it is a delicate and tasty hefe which easily bears comparison with the major German equivalent hefe.

Taste is sweet with yeast, ripe bananas and candy. Quite sweet aftertaste, low bitterness. Medium bodied, sticky texture and mouthfeel, average carbonation. Typical weizen. Not much to report.

DraftDodger (563) - - MAY 21, 2015
Copenhagen 21/5 2015. 50 cl bottle from Fakta. Pours slightly hazy yellow with small white head. Dissipates immediately. Aroma is of wheat and a little candylike. Carbonation is subdued. Taste follows the nose. Very distinct wheat - sweetish and candylike. Aftertaste is rather sweet as well with almost no bitterness. Quite fine if you are into Weiss beer. But I miss my hops.

KoNrRiI (826) - Århus, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2015
0.5 bottle. Hazy, orange color and a small, white head. Strong aroma of bananas, yeasts, flowers, some bubblegum, and delicate spices. The taste is also sweet and fruity but apart from the bananas, yeasts, and bubblegum it also features cloves and grains. Medium body, slick texture, and average carbonation. Finish is quite typical for a weizen - sweet and full of wheat and bananas. Overall a standard hefeweizen, nothing great about it.
