martjoobolut (792) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 17, 2014
0,5L bottle, BB 30.07.2015. Pours dark brown with off-white head. The head stays. Aroma is fruits, banana, caramel. Flavor is sweet, some sourness, fruity, citrus, caramel. Body is thin. Overall: I love hefeweizens, but even the top dunkelweizens are very dull compare to them, this is no exception.

Moebbels (340) - FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
A rather clear dark brown body with a quickly disappearing light brown head. Nose has very mild aromas of yeast, banana, spices and liquorice. Taste is mildly sweet and acidic with a smooth dry finish. Carbonation is lively and smooth and the palate is medium.Its a a decent beer but very bland. The BBE date was past on this bottle so a fresh one might score better.

bonkiedeaap (278) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle from Trinkgut in Kleve. The beer has a deep amber to brown color and a rich cream colored head, with a lot of bubbles. In the aroma tones of malts and yeast, but also with tones of cloves and fruits (little citrus and banana). The taste is malty but also a little fruity with tones of banana, a little citrus and a little sourness is noticable. The finish light bitter, long and refreshing.

UXO (263) - CANADA - OCT 6, 2014
Pours a clear deep amber with two fat fingers of light tan head, great retention, heavy chunky lacing. Nose is wheat, cloves, bubblegum, some citrus and fruit. Taste is light caramel malt and spicy cloves. Medium body, soft carbonation, with an off-dry mildly bitter finish. Wheat beers aren’t really my favourites, but considering I just wrote a bunch of yell-y responses to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency questionnaire about their decision to remove wheat as a permissible primary source of carbohydrates for beer, I suppose I’d better give this one a decent chance. The aroma’s not bad, though there’s a bit of the kitchen sink going on there - what, you couldn’t find any smoked malt to whack into the mix? - but the flavour’s a bigger problem. Or, I should say, the sudden death of the flavour. It kind of goes all watery in the middle, and drops dead with just a faint bitter finish. It’s not bad, but it’s a long way from great.

Idiosynkrasie (3917) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2014
500ml bottle. Hazy mahogany colour with huge, firm, frothy to creamy, off-white head. Bready, wheaty and yeasty aroma, hints of green apple. Taste is bready, wheaty and yeasty, apple notes, some clove, subtle sweetness, a touch of malt lozenge. Solid.
