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 (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!

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 (29477) - 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 (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!

Kita (1120) - 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...
