0,5l Bügelflasche. Gelbes leicht trübes Bier mit viel weissem Schaum. Es duftet nach Zitronenschale und grüner Banane. Im Geschmack etwas wässerig. Weizen und Hefe.

superspak (4391) - 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.

King_Alex_II (1095) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 13, 2015
Cloudy orange color with nice foam head. Sheath nose. The taste is watery at first and quite wheaty afterwards. Some banana and a solid carbonation. Decent aftertaste.

Erzengel (7323) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2015
Fruchtig-weiziger Antrunk. Sehr viel Nelke, nicht viel Banane. Die Hefe wirkt schwer und unrund. Kaum Herbe spürbar, Hefe, weich, ein Hauch Säure. Sehr mild aber doch etwas schwer trinkbar aufgrund der Aromenkomposition. Interessant, aber irgendwie unrund, dennoch lecker und gut trinkbar.

17Beer (185) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 7, 2015
Nice aroma of lemon and pine. Pours a hazy gold with a thick persistent white head. Light sour yeasty taste with a short finish. Very bland for a hefeweizen. Not much bite but pleasant. Underwhelming.

anstei (968) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUN 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy amber, I failed to produce the right head though. My fault. Typical Weizen aromas: Bananas and citrus, but also a bit of strawberry sirup. Short crisp mouthfeel. Not very complex, and the combination is odd.
