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.

Don’t think I’ve ever had a Swiss weizenbier before. It is markedly better than Edelweiss but still has a long way to go before reaching the status of it’s Bavarian cousins. Pretty clear actually with a light aroma. Tastes fine though a bit flat at the end. Usual flavors on the palate are real nice. Average, but I love this style so it’s still really enjoyable.

500ml corked bottled served in a Weizen bottle. A: Pours a hazy orange color forming a big fizzy and creamy white head. Good retention and lots of lacings formed and left in the glass S: Great perfume. Strong notes of white bread and sweet biscuits. Quite sweet, fruity and flowery. Notes of pale malts and wheat. Light notes of clove and banana esters. Some very light notes of flowery hops T: Sweet grains upfront. Extremely bready. Strong notes of sweet pale malts and wheat. Biscuity.

Simple but very pleasant Swiss Weissbier [ BA Review @ 6/18/2014 ]

Pindoc (103) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Ein schöner weisser feinblatriger Schaum auf naturtrüben goldgelben Bier! Der obligate Weizenduft steigt in die Nase. Der erste Schluck ist durchtränkt von Aromen, die den Gaumen umspielen und samtweich, leicht süsslich die Kehle hinunter fliessen. Der Abgang und Nachhall sind leicht bitter. Ein wunderbares Weizen!

Kita (1122) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 24, 2014
Fliptop bottle, 0.50l, shared with Yoo. Pours cloudy deep golden with medium creamy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of wheat, banana, yeast and biscuit malt. Taste starts with moderate sweet grainy malt, follows refreshing yeasty and fruity with spicy mouthfeel and light bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Surprisingly good hefeweizen...

Hazy orange color, medium head that fades quickly. Fruity/sweet aroma with flavor to match. I just can’t put this beer down. Very good.

BigBeer45 (1259) - 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.
