AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle in Zürich. It pours a cloudy, yellowish amber with a big head. The aroma is cereal, banana, oats, and a bit of cloves. Smooth palate with lively carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter and sweet. Very serviceable.

BigBeer45 (1436) - Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Sampled from a 500ml fliptop bottle, this ale had a cloudy light brown pour with a muted orange color, the pour made a one to two finger white cover that receded to a thin cover with open areas, it left a few spots of lacing on the sides of the glass, not that great of a presentation for a hefeweizen, the aromas were banana with some orange citrus, wheat and bread, a little grain in the background, and some bread sweetness, there was little to no hops, just a hint of grass and field from the hops, this drink had flavors of wheat and bread, a little banana with orange fruit, very faint vanilla and a bit of grain with a little sweetness, it had a muted citrus-acidic bite (not much at all) after the finish, the mouth feel was light and thin, it did not feel that creamy and it had soft to average carbonation, this was a very so-so and boring example of a weizenbier, oh well.

(Flasche) Es hat eine getreidig gelbe Farbe, ist hefetrüb mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist hefig, getreidig, leicht würzig und etwas nach Tannenzapfen. Der Geschmack ist hefig, schlank, samtig, etwas süß und spritzig. Im Abgang schmeckt man ganz etwas DMS, aber gut.

Marcius (419) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - OCT 12, 2013
Appearance with golden color, cloudy liquid and medium head. Aroma of banana, bubblegum and clove. Medium taste of wheat and bitter. A Good Weizenbier, I recommend it!

Average at best and missing something. Aroma is a bit off. Not terrible to drink but certainly would not buy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rahmer (10) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2013
Not so bad, but still mediocre one. Besides yellow/gold color we even see some creamy, little beige, hmm... A bit sour. Medium body, average carbonation. Something doesn’t suffice. Definitely it’s not best weizen.

The head is big and ok, the body yellow-brown and cloudy. It smells fruity sour-citrus, yeasty. The taste is yeasty, a bit dry, malty, flowery. Medium 11/9/8/9/13/10

jookos (5604) - FINLAND - APR 11, 2012
Hazy yellow with good carbonation. A bit of banana etc esters on nose, but a bit bland, not as intensive as i like. A good deal of normal fruity ale esters as well, which doesnt go well for me for a weiss. Taste is unimaginative. Stale yeast. Reminds me of a homebrewed weiss.
