Bottle. Cloudy orange body with a medium head. Typical malty and yeasty aroma. Taste is fruity and a bit drier than the average example of the style. Very good, if only a slight bit thin. Maybe it’s more sessionable this way.

I’m not normally a fan of wheat beers but I was pleasantly surprised with this beer. Served chilled poured into my camra glass tankard. A very cloudy beer but extremely refreshing. Tastes of bread and banana to me. Spot on in my books.

Hazy golden color, large white head. Aroma bread. Taste bread, citrus, carbonation higher then expected. Fruity aftertaste.

King_Alex_II (623) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 10, 2015
Orange color with very thick fine foam head that lasts long. The smell has banana-bread flavor. The taste is maybe a little overcarbonated, but it has a lot of banana and malty bredish notes as well. The aftertaste is still refreshing but not overwhelming in any way. Good beer.

andrewje41 (1332) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Bottle poured at the resort. Pours a clear orange color with a ton of fizz head. Orange fruit and light banana aroma and flavor. Very standard for the style in my opinion, but quite tasty and refreshing. Enjoyed this.

Little volcano from bottle but it’s alright - I shaked it to much. Big head, slowy reduces to half-finger. Hazy golden colour. Strong malty and yeasty aroma. Nice taste of wheat that leaves flour aftertaste. Sometimes alcohol is too noticeable. Nice weizen but not specially sessionable.

tmoreau (2932) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Shared 11.2 oz. bottles poured to snifters, showing a cloudy, orangey gold color, with a modest layer of off white head foam, and spots of lacing. The nose was light wheat, peach skin, orange, a hint of banana, and subtle phenols. Light bodied, with fair carbonation, a little tanginess, and a bit of silkiness to the mouthfeel. Very sessionable.

jamaty (1234) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 15, 2015
Buena muestra del estilo. Turbia y ocre. Espuma abundante, aunque menor que en otras similares. Aroma marcado a clavo y plátano, típico. Mucho cuerpo en la boca, y baja carbonatación. Sabor predominante es el clavo, siendo bastante especiada y menos dulce que otras, con un final especialmente amargo para el estilo. En conjunto, muy apreciable.

chinchill (2986) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 14, 2015
From a 11.2 oz bottle. Huge head over a hazy golden body. Some banana and a light spiciness. Light flavor for style. Quite drinkable.

dnicolaescu (1279) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUN 12, 2015
BOTTLE 50 CL bottled on 13-MAY-20015. Cloudy golden-orange with a huge off-white head. Classic (well, almost) aroma of tart fruit, albeit with a nasty yoghurty note, and nice and clear cloves. The taste is less beautiful - starts rather flat and dry, with very little of that wheaty/bready sweetness (that must be affecting the mouthfeel), some generic spice in the finish, and just a faint fruitiness late in the finish. Mediocre.
