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.

Pailhead (4820) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - APR 16, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 BottleL Yeasty banana and citrus aroma. Rather strong presence of orange peel. Pours a dark cloudy orangish-yellow with a white head with excellent retention. Matly and yeasty up front with a rather citrusy and clove finish. Banana quickly sneaks into a short lived aftertaste. One of the better hefes I’ve had.

Gold color with a medium head. Grainy aroma. Slight grass and wheat flavors. A bit more spice than I would expect. Nothing outstanding, but a solid wheat beer.

Rastacouere (6129) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2005
Another one of those that has this undercribable complex goldenish-amber-orange light tone while darker cloudy reddish-orange in the middle. I just love those reflects of mystery.. Plenty of yeast in suspension. Full 1-inch creamy white head, delicately lacing and lasting. Soft estery banana nose, quite fresh in its strong flakey wheat character. Spicy fruit skin, indeed feels a bit tropical, I don’t know how much I was influenced by the commercial description before saying that.. Drinkable and refreshing, very powdery feel. Growing acidity toward the finish cuts the taste a bit short. Hoppier than most, I don’t know how well this goes with the tropical fruit finish. Good balance overall appears shadowed by the strong malty feel, very fitting lower than average carbonation gives it a softness that few beers can achieve. Well, this was pretty good, not as exciting as I hoped it to be, but still one of the good german weizens in the US, as expected from kulmbacher. Fans of the style should hunt this gold dust down.

Hazy golden color with an aroma of banana and cloves. High carbonation, sweet start which becomes slightly bitter with a dry finish.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - FEB 22, 2005
This wheat was a bit too tangy for my taste. A nice clarity with nice head. Mildly sweet with sweet malty aroma, not too much banana clove present

First of all; a VERY thick,big head. Well balanced, on the sweet side. It’s well above average, but we prefer the Kristal before this one.

CEZ (397) - Milano, ITALY - FEB 8, 2005
Strong banana aroma, deep golden body, thick, white, beautiful soapy head. Taste was refreshing and tarty, but rather thin on malt and fruit, which is a pity, especially because the finish was also rather short-lived. Considering that I can have a good ol’ Franziskaner for 1/3 of the price...

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2005
Every time that I’m drinking a good hefeweizen, it’s my favorite beer style. Light, fresh smelling, quenching... This is a goody, with pale, hazy gold color, large frothy white head, scents of lemongrass, bananas, and spices emanating forth - - Good taste with a lemon spritz of a finish. - - - But now the drink is gone, and I’m a hophead again.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2005 Pours a like a Pale Ale. Nice golden color with a somewhat creamy head. Smells like white wine, raisin, and banana. Taste is nice. There is a lot of raisin in the taste, plus white wine and a bit of banana. There is some tropical fruit in it as well. Pretty good. This was better the second time. There were some suggestions of apple this time. This is one of the best Wheat beers.
