Traditional weissbier made according to the old Bavarian style with the unmistakable character of the fine cellar yeast.

Hikeg (26) - - JUN 6, 2015
Pours hazy medium yellow with big frothy, good lacing head. Medium malty aroma with straw and bread, light hoppy, medium yeast aromas - dough and a bit of leather. Notes of banana, pear and vanilla. Medium sweet, light bitter, short finish with a hint of acidic. Palate is light to medium, texture is watery with lively carbonation. Quite decent.

Hazy orange beer with white head leaving lacing. Aroma has hefeweizen yeast, ripe sweet banana, clove, vanilla, orange and wheat bread. Flavor has yeast, wheat bread, toffee and orange. Palate is almost medium full with quite high carbonation. Finish has mild bitterness. Aftertaste has yeast, toffee and orange. Refreshing, solid quality. A bit fuller and/or softer palate than usually.

Draft at WOB. Nose is mostly banana and bubble gum. Really smooth grainy wheat malt character lightly bitter but more malt forward. Damn good.

vinivini (633) - BELARUS - JUN 2, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2015 Cloudy orange. Tall creamy (later rocky) head. Good retention. Nose of wheat, yeast, fruit, spice. Light to medium body. Sweet flavour of banana in nice combination with those spice (clove, coriander). The composition is classic. Low bitterness. A Weizen of its own.

mikske79 (1302) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - JUN 1, 2015
Een bier met weinig geur en smaak aan. Het is niet slecht, de meeste mensen zullen dit wel lusten, maar echt lekker is het ook niet vind ik. Een bier dat je snel vergeet. Dan is de Dunkel een pak beter
