500ml bottle. White thick head. Mead coloured, cloudy. Aromas of banana, apricot and chalk. Citric flavour with chalk. Pretty bland and has no real character. What’s the winter part in this?

TorbenJensen (1396) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2015
Despite the voluminous persistent foam rises nonetheless a wonderful aroma cloves, wheat yest, ripe banana and a little spice through the dense foam. The taste is rich and elegant with a distinct taste of banana and a little citrus. It’s a little less ’wheaty’ than other wheat beers I’ve tasted. It provides a room for some light caramel malt and a slightly bitter-sweet hops aftertaste which I feel is a little spiciness of pepper. An incredibly delicious wheat beer that bears the right name. There is turned down a little banana and wheat sweetness, while crank up clove, caramel and spices. Therefore it fits fiendishly good for winter.

Erzengel (6242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2015
Smooth and fresh beginning. Nice soft yeast, round and fresh clove with hints of fruity but ripe banana. Hints of bitterness in the aftertaste, smooth and soft. Full in body, nice fresh and full yeast-flavour. Nice and smooth beer!

Actually a very nice Weizen. A bit heavier than the standard but fitting for the winter time.

redenberg (2) - Chorzów, POLAND - APR 6, 2015 does not count
Ciemnozłote, na początku nalewa się względnie klarowne (może dlatego że długo czekało na swoją kolej i osad zdążył opaść), końcówka całkiem nieklarowna, zmętnienie niezbyt ładne. Piana obfita, szybko opada, nie oblepia ścianek szklanki. Piwo wysoko wysycone. W aromacie przede wszystkim goździk. Lekkie nuty metaliczne, żelaziste, które pojawiają się również przy wąchaniu retronosowym, ale nie wpływa to bardzo na smak. Piwo poza tym dość czyste, mało goryczkowe, typowy weizen, niczego nie urywa.

Pours hazy amber-brown with off-white head. The head stays. Aroma is fruits, banana, caramel, wheat, yeast. Flavor is sweet, wheat, caramel, some sourness, fruits. Body is on the thin side. Overall: too thin, but drinkable.

nihtila (2095) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
25.12.2013. Tummahko suodattamaton vehnäolut. Tuoksussa tuttua vehnäolutta: banaania, makeutta, kypsiä hedelmiä. Maku ei pääse aivan tuoksun tasolle, ensivaikutelma on hieman vetinen ja voimakashappoinen. Maussa myös hentoa kypsää hedelmää, yrttejä ja banaania, ja siinä mielessä mukailee tuoksua miedompana versiona.

Hazy amber beer, big beige head. Nose is very papery, malt, wheat. Flavor is very watery, mild fruity notes and some sweetness, wheat notes and wet cardboard. Yeah, but no. Shared by martjoobolut, thanks!

Russo (1937) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JAN 3, 2015
Hazy orange color with an amazing off-white head that last for while and then keep a nice lacing. Aroma is yeasty and wheat, hints of caramel, banana and some malt. Flavor follow the aroma with some more swetness. Low carbonation and a medium to full body with a sweet dry finish.
