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.

Pindoc (121) - 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!

superspak (4587) - Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2015
500 ml bottle into weizen glass, best before 5/27/2015. Pours hazy deep golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with great 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 head. Aromas of big banana, clove, lemon, pear, apple, light bubblegum, wheat, biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, bready malt, and light earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big banana, clove, lemon, pear, apple, light bubblegum, wheat, biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness/yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of banana, clove, lemon, pear, apple, wheat, biscuit, light honey, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. damn nice robustness, complexity, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, bready malt, and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready, and lightly crisp mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is an excellent hefeweizen. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, bready malt, and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Swing-top bottle. Lemon-banana, clove, and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy pale yellow color with moderate head. Slight sweet lemon, light banana, moderately bitter clove and wheat malt flavor. Nice body. Very good - a solid weizen.

Ungstrup (34273) - 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.

Goldorak (438) - 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!

Kita (1873) - 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...
