Jacob Weissbier, by Brauerei Jacob. They have a nice Bierfinder page here on their website. Too bad there’s nothing near FFM (Frankfurt am Main). My beer’s "Best by"date is 25.07.13, so a normal 6 month lifespan. Also, you can buy their beer in Biershop Bayern. Let’s drink this thing. First, color is light amber with lots of orange in it, all under a snow-white foam. Aroma is typical Weizen/Weissbier... a little banana, a hint of cloves, a bit of Münchner malt, and bubblegum, lots and lots of bubblegum. The flavor is also typical for this style, banana and bubblegum is strong. It’s basically all you taste at first. It’s also sweet with some malt in the background, but not much. Here the yeast is what’s prominent. The front of the tongue gets cloves quite strongly, the middle has tad of peppery and some sour notes on the back of the tongue. Malt flavor is barely noticeable but it’s there as the basis of the sweetness that manages to come through, especially in the bubble-gummy aftertaste. Overall, I’m not a huge fan of this style, really, but if I have to drink it, I wouldn’t mind drinking Jacobs. I like it, but I’d rather drink other styles. However, my girlfriend really like this beer, and I almost wasn’t able to drink much of it. I must say... it’s almost too bubble-gummy and could’ve used some more malt flavors, maybe more Vienna, Münchner, Biscuit or some other toasty malt to balance it out.

BeerLuvver (72) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2013
Pours cloudy orange with good white head but disappears fairly quickly, Strong scent of banana, fruit and spices. Taste is soft sweet, banana, light sour note or citrus and a punchy nutmeg & clove spice at the end. Weisse with a bit of a kick but not very long lasting (like all German beers really). Pleasant.

RexTalionis (2963) - FINLAND - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle 50 cl. BBE 28.05.2013. Pours hazy golden in color with a massive thick white head. Wheat, light notes of clove and hints of perfume in aroma. Chewy bubblegum mouthfeel. Taste is sweet, mostly wheat and banana, but has also kind of a spicy feel to it. Nice, easy to drink and quite good tasting hefeweizen, best one in a while. Fruity banana in aftertaste.

Poured the traditional cloudy yellow with large frothy head. Aroma of yeasty wheat and some spice. Medium body, flavour of the wheat and some spice, but lacking much in the way of citrus.

Bottle @ home thx to benzai. Slightly hazy yellow to orange with a creamy white head that doesn’t last very long. Smells malts, banana, sweet. Tastes not as sweet as expected but still some banana. Also quite watery and slightly iron in the taste. Thin body, slightly silky and soft carbo.

#602 Das Weissbier schäumt gut auf dank reichlich Kohlensäure. Im Glas ein typisches Weissbier im trüben Look. Das Aroma weißt nur Hefe und etwas Fruchtigkeit aus. Der Antrunk ist eher wässrig und geht dann über in ein Standard-Weissbier. Das Label wirkt wie ein Foto aus dem Reisekatalog für den bayerischen Wald... Fazit: Erfrischend und süffig, hinterläßt aber keinen bleibenden Eindruck. Erinnert mich an Erdinger... Test vom 20.11.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,9,12,9,6,9 - 9,30

# 3156 ersma: „18 x gold weltweit einmalig!“ prangt links auf dem halsetikett. die rechte seite verrät die lösung, da sehen wir nämlich die dlg-plakette. wie hoch ich die dlg-prämierung einschätze, ist dem geneigten leser ja bekannt. insofern haben wir hier meiner ansicht nach ein produkt, für das der hersteller 18 x viel geld ausgegeben hat, um sich bestätigen zu lassen, dass das produkt diese plakette nötig hat. ganz abgesehen davon, dass „weltweit einmalig“ für eine rein deutsche prämierung sachlich natürlich richtig aber doch irgendwie fragwürdig ist. trübe beigefarben, schaum ist ok. der geruch ist süßlich, bananig und hefig. der antrunk schmeckt ein wenig wie bananenmilch ohne milch. süßlich, auch hier viel hefe. zur mitte wirds säuerlicher, auch hopfen macht sich bemerkbar. die bananigkeit ist aber dominant und bleibt es bis zum abgang. der kommt ansonsten säuerlich und recht herb daher. flasche: die etiketten wirken billig und einfallslos. fazit: um es frei nach rolf zuckowski zu formulieren: „theo, mach mir ein bananenbier.“ ansonsten finden sich all meine vorurteile gegenüber dlg-prämierten bieren aufs trefflichste bestätigt. 10,6,6, 8,5,6 - 6,65 - 31/10/12
