BLADT (680) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2014
From 500ml bottle. Clean, honey gold with creamy white head. Very sweet smelling. Honey, breakfast cereal and white peaches. Taste is honey drizzled over apricots, both tart and sweet. Creamy mouthfeel that ends dry. Lingering sweetness. Surprisingly complex.

Bottle: Hazy dark yellow, light orange color, white stiff head. Aroma of wheat and cloves. Flavor with wheat, yeast, shy fruitiness, spices. All in all few complex and boring.

Grzesiek79 (3412) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 24, 2014
W miare dobra niemiecka pszenica. Z tresciwoscia i sytoscia jest srednio. Moze mniej w kolorze odcieni pomaranczy, a wiecej zoltych, ale sytosc zadowala. Piana klasyczna i puszysta w tym stylu. Sporo estrow bananowych wyczulem. Pijalne piwo.

GoufCustom (995) - HONG KONG - JAN 10, 2014


500ml flip-top bottle bought at Lafaco & Co’s booth at HKCEC in Wan Chai during Hong Kong Food Festival 2013.

Cloudy hazy light honey amber colour with lots of dirt-like yeast sediments; Explosive three and half finger head with lasting crumpety white foam; Very good sticky lacing and fizzy carbonation; Fragment aroma of vanilla, banana mash, tart notes, light bubblegum, strong yeast, light caramel, strong cloves and spices, malt and light grass; Slightly tart and low sweet taste of light malt, with light caramel, vanilla, faint banana, hint of wet cardboard, strong yeast, faint cloves, light lemon and light grass; Close to light body, thin and quite crisp palate; Mouth feel is highly carbonated but rather light in many areas - malt, tartness, esters, spices - except the yeast. Very easy to go down but has that run of the mill feeling. So so… Hoppiness is bare minimum grass and in nose and taste. No bitterness, just wheaty finish; Fairly dry after taste, very easy to mouth.

Comment: This one has very impressive head and froth, but everything else is so industrially average. Light in nose, taste, body and mouth feel. Clean, easy to please for the masses but unexciting to drink. Won’t buy again, but at least it doesn’t offend like the poor Höss Weisser-Hirsch.

bartlebier (2459) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2013
50cl fliptop. Abover average, label.conform "fresh and fruity" Weisse with dominant citrus and apricot notes and mercifully little banana and clove. Lightish mf, not cloying. Little green grass hop bite, always appreciated. Good stuff, another rare and tasty exception to the stylistic banana&clove shake.

tectactoe (3072) - Michigan, USA - OCT 15, 2013
UPDATED: APR 10, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Jeff! Nebulous, placid yellow, unfiltered with little bits of sediment. Soft, white head with good retention though not as chunky as I’d expect or like. Aroma is light wheat, some mild ripe fruits, banana with a hint of apple and pear, and not much else. A little too mild for the style. Taste consists of salt-water taffy, banana esters, light wheat, mild clove, some back-end yeast, and a faint, residual sugary sweetness. Finish has some buttery popcorn flavor, seems like excess diacetyl, not a good sign. Despite that, not a bad beer, but just okay at best. Many better hefes out there.

BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Expected fruit and ester nose with citrus. Pours hazy dark gold with large rocky white head. Body is on the thinner side with crisp carb. Flavors are fruity sweetness with some malts and somewhat flat finish. It’s not bad, but not exciting either. A decent hefe.

Patrickctenchi (4570) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Cloudy, dark yellow-gold with a tall, cream head. Wheat, orange aroma. Taste is sweet wheat malt, banana, orange. A little cardboard-ish.... Average.

bottled - stock standard hefeweizen - hazy orange, some banana and clove in the nose, light acidity, hints of vanilla but not exactly bursting with flavour
