500 ml.bottle, crystal clear colour with a big head, the usual for the style, as it is the rest : smell of bananas, cloves, coriander and a bit of citrus, with some funkiness included. Lighter in the palate than one could expect, I don’t really notice too much carbonation. Palate is the same: bananas, coriander, clove and some citrus. Just correct, I’d rather have some of the others weizens out there.

nihtila (2611) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 7, 2016
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Nose is sweet banana, wheat. Tastes wheat, light banana, light bitter, not much spiciness. Not bad but not the best example of the style either.

Aromas of bubblegum and banana. Medium to high sweetness. Light and easy drinking. Smooth finish. Low acidity. Banana notes. Not excessively phenolic. This is a very easy to like weizen, but won’t blow one away.

jjsint (2027) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2016
Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants, Bridge Street. Dark gold, cloudy. Sourdough and lemon on the reserved aroma. Sweet yeasty taste with a slight funky tartness. Surprisingly short finish. Not one of my favourite hefeweizens but drinkable enough.

Bierdimpfe (179) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
Slightly veiled dark golden color with high activity. Foamy white 2 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with average legs. Aromas of citrus and wheat. Flavors of grains, orange, lemon, banana, corn, caramel. A little bready with highly syrupy sweetness and minimal sharpness. Light bodied with a faint straw finish and minimal spices. Overall an average beer having faint smell and flavors with an adjunct and unbalanced feel. Passable freshness being a little boozy and vinous.

Grisza77 (456) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 8, 2016
Złote, mętne piwo o obfitej pianie, która zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w formie sporej warstewki na powierzchni. Aromat intensywny bananów i goździka. W smaku trochę mniej intensywne, lekko kwaskowe, owocowe. Goryczka niska. Ogólnie solidny przedstawiciel stylu, bardzo pijalne.

R2k2 (445) - NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2016
A nice, peach-colored beer with a nice firm, compact layer of foam. It has the fruity aroma from banana’s and a subtile hint of alcohol in the background. It has a nice hop-bitter taste, but unfortunately, the fruity bit is less present in the taste. It has a slightly fruity aftertaste. Nice beer!! Een troebel, perzik-oranje gekleurd bier met een mooie, witte stevige kraag. In het aroma zit het fruitige van banaan, en op de achtergrond de subtiele hint van alcohol. Een lekkere hop-bittere smaak, maar het fruitige komt hier helaas minder in terug. De nasmaak is lichtjes bitter. Een lekker bier!!
