The most refreshing beer in the world. Malted wheat and special yeast give Kapuziner Weissbier its light touch and distinctive taste - a yeasty tang offset by a solid malt body and a delightful tropical fruitiness. Unfiltered yeast lends a hazy, seductive look.

On tap. Pours murky yellow with no head. Sourish yeasty aroma. Taste is fruity and slightly sour. Drank side-by-side with a Wiehenstephaner. This one was not very impressive in comparison.

Alengrin (4212) - BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2015
Kulmbacher’s Hefeweizen, with very thick and frothy, creamy, beautiful head, light yellowish in colour and very regularly structured; pours a hazy orangey ’old gold’ with amberish hue, a tad deeper in colour than usual for the style, with a whirlwind of bubbles going through; adding the deposit results in a completely cloudy, ochre-hued peach colour. Typical Bavarian Weissbier aroma of fresh banana, baker’s yeast, white bread dough, dry straw, cloves, sweetbread, dried apricot, more vague accents of sweaty grains, canned pineapple slices, gingerbread. Soft sweetish fruity onset, banana, peach, hint of red apple peel, sourish balance from the wheat but all very gently so, strongish but refined carbonation as it should be in this style, very soft and ’fluffy’ mouthfeel, very bready and a bit yeasty in the end, with retronasal phenolic (clove) spiciness and a touch of deeply buried but structurally effective, leafy hop bitterishness. A gentle, soft, extremely quenching example of this style, with sufficient phenolic spiciness and well-crafted balance between sweet, sour and bitter. I’d recommend this as a typical, pleasant and well-made example to anyone who wants to venture in this ancient Bavarian beer style.

A bit malty breadlike compared to most Weisbier. A Mittler salty aftertaste. Decent German beer .

Came in hot and sweaty, popped a bottle and really enjoyed this one. Smells of yeast and grain and is full-bodied. Not very sweet and the banana flavor, which puts me off most American wheats, is very muted here. Pretty light on the carbonation and with a yeasty finish. A good one!

Slautar (440) - Gdañsk, POLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Z zapasów przywiezionych przez Ojca z wycieczki do Niemiec. Przyjemny bananowy aromat zapowiadał wrażenia smakowe na nieco lepszym poziomie niż zastany bo piwo w smaku okazało się tylko trochę lepsze od nijakiego.

Really good weissbier. Probably best one from germany. I recommend. Tastes very smooth and has rich flavor and the bottle is awesome, because the cap of the bottle looks oldschool. Label looks so nice and the image of monk makes it look really good.

szeli (243) - GERMANY - AUG 4, 2015
Ein Wort genügt zur Beschreibung: SANFT! Ich habe selten ein Bier getrunken welches mit einem so weichen Wasser gebraut wurde. In der Nase sehr fruchtig, bananig. Im Geschmack viel Weizen, Banane, Malzsüße, wenig Nelke. Sehr erfrischend und spritzig. Leckeres Weizen.

Weisse rinfrescante, che si presenta bene, non è cattiva, ma non ha note particolari da segnalare
