MoritzF (8562) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2009
(swing top bottle) Hazy, orange-golden colour with a big but non-persistent frothy white head. Sweet wheat-malty aroma with notes of banana and strong spicy and clovy phenols. Slightly sourish flavour, light to medium bodied with a spritzy carbonation. Wheaty malty and slightly grainy taste with notes of banana and cloves; mildly sourish and grainy finish. Okay (14.VIII.09).

Embrouille (2829) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 5, 2007
Bottled 50cl. Vinegar in the nose and in the taste. Watery. Hints of honey in the finish. Thin bodied, not much character to this beer.

Dorqui (2110) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 22, 2007
Bottled 0,50L. Creamy and adherent head of discreet duration. Orange clearly color with good fizz and nice hazy aspect. Aromas of macerated malt and dampen cereals. Pleasant taste of wine cellar, stum and yeast. Rather sweet with lemon and withered clear grape notes.

jerohen (2014) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2007
Cloudy dark yellow coloured, initially big but disappearing head. Fruity nose, banana, citrus and something else i can’t put my finger on. Predominantly sweet flavour, some bitterness, yeasty notes. Somewhat dry finish. Quite one-dimensional hefeweizen, not really impressive. Thanks to my lovely girlfriend for bringing this from Bern.

Quack-Duck (7958) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2007
bottle. Hazy, dark yellow, nearly amber, impressingly large head. Malty and yeasty flavours, slightly hoppy. Hints of fruit. Quite refreshing Hefeweizen.

Goldorak (439) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2005
A darker shade of peach, with some sediment in suspention. A nice, thick and cakey froth that slowly died off, but not without clinging for dear life on the inner walls of my glass.
Some citrus in the first nose, then plenty of soothing vanilla and maybe even lavander and floral aromas. Banana esters where there, but not as much as the usual german Hefe.
Lively carbonation, sweet overtones of weizen malt, with hops barely noticable in the finish. A light, enjoyable and refreshing Beer!

fiulijn (14992) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2004
Clean golden color. All the spicy character of a Weizen, average strength, quite thin body.

Ungstrup (29486) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2003
The aroma is slightly biiter and hoppy. The color is orange and it has a beutiful beige head. The flavor is sweet, wheaty, and malty with slight bitterness. The wheat dominates the aftertaste. A really good hefeweizen.
