2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
0,33 l bottle, from a trade with Cuso. Pours a slight unclear golden body. Noisy carbonation, head lasts for only a few seconds. No hefeweizen chracteristics neither in the aroma, nor flavor. Smell of cider apples, light fruity-acidic taste. This one suffers from an ongoing infection, unfortunately.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Cuso shared with McTapps. Thanks to both. This one is a bit below that slovakian standard I had so far. Simple in the nose with loads of cheap yeast and a strange, dull, unpleasant end. In the middle it becomes quite simple like the weizen from Lidl. Drinkable, but way below that what I would consider huge.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle with many thanks from Cuso. The beer pours out in a hazy orange-amber colour, low head and medium body. Nose of sour Belgian yeast. Taste of kiwis, wheat, light yeast, old fruit salad and hay. Not really fresh tasting and not refreshing. Little bit too sweet in the finish. Okay but nothing special.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clean pale body with good foam. A tons of diacetyl in the aroma. Taste is malty, but overwhelmed by the diacetyl. Body is full, low carbonation.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled 330ml. -from Különleges Sörök Boltja, Budapest. Hazy orange/golden coloured, small white head, lively carbonation, yeasty nose. Quite acidic yeasty and over-ripe fruits taste with some spices in the finish. Mild lactic also. Considering all other rates my bottle was possible infected although it should be "alive" for more than two months.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle courtesy of Cuso, dekuje. - Off-style, flat and nevertheless highly enjoyable Berliner Weisse of a sourish Weizen, leaning towards the lambic by-product of meerts. Aroma is yeast spice and mainly lemon, citric acids. Wheat in the taste is mainly the supplier of dryness and subdominant fruitier notes (very faint banana peach bubble gum flavours), dry citric acidity dominates and is quite refreshing if you can focus on this being more of a Berliner Weisse meerts-lambic than a Weizen, which going by earlier raters was hopefully intended? Another haphazardly? off-kilter take on a Germanic classic from the fringes of Old Habsburg.
