beer4eternity (212) - Tauranga, - NOV 21, 2011
0,5 l from Okere Falls Cafe, NZ; a good discovery with many more beers to sample from there in nice environs. Murky, cloudy, deep straw hue, dense pillowy-foamy white to off-white slowly diminishing head. Looked great in the Aktienbrauerei Kaufbeuren weizen style glass it came in. Delightful spicy (clove mostly), honey on white toast, biscuit, ginger, citrus aromas. Moderately sweet, at least mildly sour taste with a long duration. Medium body; more than I expected, spritzy carbonation, creamy texture, lingering peppery spicy afterglow. Very pleasant on a hot summery afternoon while on holiday.

Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. Piwo o ladnej piance lecz szybko opadajacej. Jak na hefeweizena jest to mala piana. Metnosci srednio. Zloto miedziana barwa. W aromacie glownie gozdziki i mus jablkowy. W smaku dochodza pieczone banany, jakby nalesniki z jablkami i te gozdziki. Ogolnie sredni jednak pszeniczniak mimo wyrazistych dla mnie aromatow i smakow.

GoufCustom (1299) - HONG KONG - OCT 10, 2015


330 ml bottle bought at Berliner German Bar & Restaurant in Langham Place, Mongkok.

Murky straw honey colour with a ring of dirt-like yeast sediments; Two and a half finger head with soapy white foam which last for 2 minutes; Poor sticky lacing and very fizzy carbonation; Aroma of very light malt, with strong banana, light vanilla, light wheat, light sugar, very light spices, yeast, thin lemon and thin grass; Very light sweet taste of very light malt, with wet cardboard, strong metallic, light wheat, faint tartness, wood, very light phenolic, strong muddy yeast, lemon, very low bitter hops and strong straw; Light body. Slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is muddy strawy yeast with metallic all the way. Malt and wheat is very light, very soapy, no fruity esters, no spicyness, no hops. Bad!… Hoppiness is thin lemon and thin grassy in nose, strong straw in taste. Bitterness is very low for an abrupt, very low astringent non-finish; Slightly dry after taste. Soapy and muddy to mouth.

Comments: A really poor Hefeweiss reminded me of Höss Weisser-Hirsch, only worse - murky looks, aroma that fades very quickly, poor malts and wheat, with metallic and muddy yeast finish. Drain pours!

Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is neutral, strange and slightly sour-ish, yeast, old hay, cereal, dough, grass, paper, wheat. Taste is slightly dry and harsh, cardboard, wheat, weeds, hay, cereal, yeast. Little bitterness, harsh grainy mouthfeel. Crap!

MichaelAwesome (6157) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 20, 2015
Klassisches Hefe ohne große Höhepunkte, dafür aber mit ordentlich Perlung, etwas Hefe, ein wenig Frucht und einem Schuss Getreidigkeit. Nichts Besonderes eben.
