superspak (3988) - Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2015
500 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 5/27/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of light lemon, wheat, cracker, toasted biscuit, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of light lemon, wheat, cracker, toasted biscuit, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of wheat, cracker, toasted biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with zero estery yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/bready, and lightly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a damn nice kellerbier style. All around great robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Pindoc (121) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Schöner weisser dichter Schaum! Das Bier hat eine hellgoldene trübe Farbe. Es steigt kein besonderer Duft in die Nase. Eine wunderbare prickelnde Flüssigkeit umspielt die Zunge und den Gaumen zartbitter. Der Abgang ist leicht süsslich und wird am Ende etwas Bitter. Leider verflüchtigt sich der Geschmack etwas zu schnell!

Arek (773) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - FEB 10, 2015
02.05.14: Bottle 0.33 l.
Jasnozłote, mętne piwo o grubej i puszystej pianie oraz słodowym zapachu. W smaku łagodne, orzeźwiające, trochę pszeniczne z subtelną goryczką na finiszu.

Flip-top bottle 50 cl. Poured hazy golden-yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is malty and a bit fruity. Flavour is sweet fruity, a bit like a hefeweizen. Recommend

50cl fliptop downed while dehydrating entering the never-ending Belgian II/2015 backlog, bb04/2015. Misty yellowmpoiur, nice unpasteurised cap. Floral, "hopfenblumige" Tettnang foam, Keller proteins and spring meadow. Lovely fresh yeast character in taste, soggier white bready grains, then again fresh ¿Tettnang zing. Dry yeasty mouthfeel, pollen. Very refreshing and without flaws = excöllönt Southwestern Köller.

3fourths (8885) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2009
draft in zurich. unfiltered hazed golden wheat with a fine-bubbled white head. yeast-forward nose of citrus juice and weizen yeast banana/clove esters, little bit of spice (coriander, anise). effervescent and light bodied, finish has mild citrus sharpness. nice enough, uncomplicated but lacks depth. body could use some work, as it is it comes across like soda when warmer.
