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.

50 cl bottle shared three ways. Pour is murky golden with a frothy head. Nose and taste has lots of candy banana, cloves and sweet grain. A bit dull.

DonKromann (107) - DENMARK - JAN 8, 2016
From tap. Pours cloudy golden with a thick protein rich foam. Aroma is banana. Taste is sweet. Banana and actually a hoppy freshness. But the banana taste is still too overwhelming. It’s okay.

En ganske udmærket hvedeøl der smager præcist som sådan en skal smage. Dejligt

Tap at Taphouse. Pours and looks like a hefeweizen should. Also fairly standard flavor, the just isn’t enough of it. However it is very easy to drink, especially during hot summer days. Want something good and inoffensive, then this beer is your man.

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...

Bottle @ home. Aroma of banana-yeast and wheat, sweet-ish. Hazy amber golden, big white head, mostly lasting. Moderate- sweetness, light bitterness. Light body, soapy texture, average carb., medium long finish.

TorbenJensen (1464) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2015
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.

WillemsUrenkel (1505) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 6, 2015
0,5 l bottle. Simple but nice label. Unclear pale orange, very small head. Banana, clove and yeast on the nose. Taste is more sweet orange fruity. Little bit dry yeast and wheat. Not very crisp, more watery finish.
