kingstoni (1961) - FINLAND - JUN 22, 2012
Bottle. Hazy dark yellow color with a thick white head. Aroma is honey and wheat. A bit harsh on palate. Quite malty taste for a German Hefe.

Excelen Hefe weissen with a strong head and deep wheat aroma. Caramel notes with little backbite. Excellent after dinner beer.

A: Pours a golden amber color that features the kind of haze I expect out of a hefeweizen. I am, however, impressed with its head, a towering, fluffy three plus finger head. Retention isn’t amazing (though it’s damn good) but I’m pretty impressed with its lacing. S: I’m surprised how earthy the nose on this is. It seems to rely less on fruity esters (banana, clove, etc.) and more on the noble aspect. Grassy, as well. T: Again, the star of the show isn’t the ester profile, it’s the hops. There’s plenty of grassy, earthy hops complementing the smooth wheat base. Very refreshing and easy to drink, but it needs more in the way of banana/clove esters (they exist, but are far too mild on the tongue). While it doesn’t have amazing complexity, or the X-factor of a Weihenstephaner, it still gets the job done admirably. M: Lighter bodied with only a hint of astringency on the back end. Well carbonated and easygoing. O: I enjoy it, but it’s not my favorite hefe. It’s not on par with Weihenstephaner’s or Sierra Nevada’s hefeweizen, but it’s a fine example of the style. I still can’t wait to try the dunkel version of this. It isn’t worth killing your family to find it, but it’s definitely worth a try if it falls into your lap.

kappldav123 (5890) - GERMANY - FEB 28, 2012
Bottle looks good. Beer in the glass very zippy, but small head. Starts quite yeasty and also quite dry. Finish more fruity like banana, modest sourish. Not bad. Thanks to quack-duck for that one!

squarta (68) - - FEB 19, 2012
Una birra che si presenta con tutte le carte in regola: colore giallognolo, torbido al punto giusto, con un’esplosione di schiuma densa e compatta che si ritira pian piano in un leggero straterello biancastro. L’odore di grano è intenso, con fresche note erbacee in primissimo piano. Una volta in bocca rivela un sapore che vira sull’arachide e il legno. Poco amara e poco persistente il sapore.

Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Der Schaum ist cremefarbend, mittelporig, und er steht gut da. Geruchlich kommts sehr hefig und bananig rüber. Geschmacklich kann das Bier auch trumpfen. Gute Hefe und Banane-Aromen und eine feine Würzigkeit. Hinzu gesellt sich ein leckerer Nachgeschmack, den ich aber irgendwie nicht definieren kann.

Enjoyit (3756) - Vadum, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2011
Dark amber of color with an off white. An aroma of wheat, fruity and sweets. A flavor of wheat, fruity, banana, bread and weak bitter.
