ruigo (862) - PORTUGAL - APR 9, 2014
Shared a 50cl bottle. Pours a cloudy orangish yellow colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is spicy, earthy and light fruity. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with a dry end. Overall, a not so tasty beer but very drinkable.

Beardbeerman (1) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014 does not count
330ml bottle dated 11/07/2011 served in a weizen glass around 6 degrees: Pardon my ignorance, but I had no knowledge of this product (or the brewery for that matter) until I spotted the brew at my local beer spot. It pours a hazy corn robe with vivid carbs letting rise about two fingers of finely structured foam. Retention is average and I got some nice rough lacing. The brew is visually very appealing. The nose is very bready and sweet as expected from a Weizen so points are earned there for sure. Apart from this, I got some wild hops in the back (I say wild because they had a distinctive grassy aroma) that blended very well with the malty aspects. On the tongue, the brew was a bit disappointing to be honest. I got some bready/sweet malts paired with timid hops leaving the taste a bit diluted and lacking corpus. It has all the elements you’d find in any Weizen, except I was looking for a little more boldness (perhaps from the hops) to kick it up a knotch. Overall this brew is a fair choice and I still recommend it for the sake of discovery. Cheers!

Opaque golden yellow with off-white lasting, lacing foam head. Aroma is wheat, bread. Tastes bread like, soft, fresh, little fruity. Quite long aftertaste. (Kassel 201403) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DandyLion (473) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2014
On tap at Babelas, Leicester. Very cloudy golden orange colour. Aroma is wheat and slight cloves. Taste is bananas and slight clove. Nice enough. A little too much carbonation for me perhaps. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Silvan7 (567) - Samarate, ITALY - MAR 16, 2014
On tap. Gialla ambrata con riflessi aranciati. Aroma di frutta matura, su tutto banana e un po’ di agrumato (mandarino). Speziatura classica dello stile (chiodo di garofano). Non molto intenso il gusto, piuttosto acido, si ritrovano banana agrumi e speziatura ma il gusto del frumento è più forte del suo odore. Bevibile ma lontano dall’eccellenza

znawca (29) - POLAND - MAR 13, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 AROMA: no banana/clove notes, some sweet fruits, malt; APPEARANCE: orange / peachy color, definitely cloudy, pretty impressive white "wheat" head; TASTE: very delicate, taste of malt and yeast, sweet, slight acidulous notes, no bitterness; PALATE: medium body, slightly slick, elevated carbonation; OVERALL: pleasant, but lack of classical weizen notes causes lower grade;

kustie (65) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Tasainen vehnäinen tuoksu. Ei erityisiä tuoksuja nouse esiin. Vaahto säilyy hyvin, väri on samea. Maussa sitruunaa, happamuutta. Aavistuksen tasapaksu vehnäolut.
