COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

6/30/07 On draught at the Seattle International Beerfest. Aroma is a wide malt blend of sweetness, wheat and sourness. Appearance is a cloudy, wheaty, yellow with a medium white head. Flavor is sweet, wheaty malt with low hop flavor. Mouthfeel is light bodied, crisp, with a clean finish. Overall, a very easy drinking weissbier with no objectionable standouts to complain about.

Unclear almost orange. Rich lasting white head. Wheaty and yeasty aroma. Even more wheat in the flavour. Yeast. Notes of citrus. A little bitterness in the finish. Full. Faintly metallic. Very good.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2007
Bottled - Swan & Rushes - Leicester. A hazy orange/gold coloured hefe, with a big loose white head. The aroma is spicy with notes of clove and sweet malts. The taste has banana and spice. A bit meaty. An Ok hefe, but verging on being too heavy.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Bottle: Pours a clear(?) gold color, thick white head and lots of lacing. The nose is spicy with phenols but is lacking a lot of esters I crave in a good german style hefeweizen. Faint clove, but mainly just yeast, bread and light wheat. The flavor explodes with the esters, there’s our banana. The finish is nice and full bodied, lots of zesty yeast and moderate wheat malt lingering body. This does lack a harmony I really like with many of my favorite german hefeweizens. I love the quote, "Unfiltered yeast lends a hazy, seductive look." I guess mine wasn’t in the seductive mood. Is this what a hefe looks like when it doesn’t put makeup on and goes into wal-mart at 2am dressed in sweats, flip-flops and a midriff?

*5 Liter mini-keg shared amongst some good friends after B-Patches 1’st birthday party. I enjoyed this over the course of a day/evening both regular and fruited with a fresh lemon. Very light and wheaty with a generous fruit aroma. The lemon really seemed to accentuate the aroma. Inviting pale orange color with a thick and diminishing head that does produce some nice lacing. Zesty and smooth over the gums this one has a mild body and is very satisfying. Faint banana and spice flavor up front leading way to an overall general fruitiness. Nice crisp wheat malt base is evident. This is one of the very few Hefe’s I prefer w/ a half slice of lemon. Great summer cooler, this mini-keg was the best idea I had all day.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2007 Bottle, from Metro Kolding. A muddy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is nice with banana, but it feels a little uncomplex. Flavour is not as sweet as other hefes, it has some sourness or tartness as well. But there is naturally some sweetness and wheatyness - not much bitterness. Mouthfeel is creamy and fine.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2007 Kapuziner Weissbeer is one of my favorite beers. It has a creamy texture and is very smooth. Now I know why the monks have a big belly!

bleeng (1652) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2007
Bottle thanks to Sebastian. Pours hazy with a thick, chunky, dense white head. Medium carbonation. Wheaty, malty, nose. Tastes of clove, banana, wheat but not over-the-top. Lighter body for a Weissbier. A good session/summer beer for hot Houston day.

Zeswaft (1596) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2007
I believe this is the last available and decently rated german hefeweizen I can get ahold of. I can say that i haven’t missed anything. Cloudy gold and a rocky head. Aroma is very lemony and wheaty. Flavor is kind of grainy and bland. The most evident wheat tasting beer i’ve ever had. Doesn’t have nearly enough of the banana and bubblegum esters that i dig in hefeweizens. perhaps this isn’t the freshest beer.

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 14, 2007
500ml bottle from A-1 To-Go. Murky orange-yellow body with a good inch to inch and a half of off-white head that dissipates slowly. Smells sweet and fruity, like banana, nut, spice. Tastes like banana, nut, and malty sweetness. Rich creamy mouthfeel. Very very drinkable. A fantastic hef. One of the best I’ve had.
