adnielsen (9449) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle @ home via trade. I can’t remember who sent this to me, but thanks ! Pours a hazy, light yellow appearance with a thin off white head. Aroma is pretty mild- some candy / cotton candy / bubblegum notes. A little bit of citrus. Nothing overwhelming in the smell. Kind of tart and spritzy flavor. Some hay / straw / herbal notes. Kind of juicy. A touch of veggie. A little dull. Kind of strange but not overly bad.

DuffMan (7025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 29, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy lemony yellow, lively white head that collapses rapidly to a thin ring. Aroma is very sour, a little earthy too. Really weird for a supposed weizen. Palate is sour and yeasty, no room for anything else. Finish is coarse and acidic. Not a fan of this one.

BVery (6939) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Bottle. Hazy flat light orange pour with a head that quickly diminishes to zero. Mild tart/sour aroma. Thin palate. Taste is flat, peach, wheat - almost no spice. This misses the mark.

blipp (6326) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Spicy yeasty aroma with coriander and lemon. the flavor is lemony, with some light sourness, coriander, and light spicy yeast. Not bad.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2011
Bottle:   For a German Hefe this one has one hell of a quick fizzy head.   Otherwise, no lacing, lightly cloudy, looking like some dirty straw.   Pale bready nose, smells more like an American example.   Oh vay, a little tart wheatiness on the tongue, bready, but no real aspects of this being anything evenly remotely close to something German.   No banana, clove, or yeasty aspects.   Certainly wheaty tho.   Nearing the thin side for a wheat beer, not filling or heavy at all.   Finishes like a Birther finding out Obama is actually a United States citizen, unhappy and retarded.
