Wolf_Gang (11) - Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2016
A bit darker than your usual wessbier. Abundant froth as typical of the style. The nose is very distinct: spicy and bready with a dominant "olive" note. Not very complex though and I am not immediately getting the banana and bubblegum. The taste follows on these notes with a dominant bread taste. Very fizzy, as expected. Nothing exceptional but not bad either.

Grumbo (1173) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2016
Bottle at the Station Hotel, Ipswich. Poured a hazy pale orange colour with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, orange, yeast, lemon and banana. Medium sweetness, light bitterness and sourness. Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation. Thought it ok though didn’t realise at the time it was in style top 50.

This is what a Hefeweizenshould taste like, Old School. Not saying newer ones are not good, but if you can’t brew something ng close to this, stop tryi ng to reinvent it!

Fules (490) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 11, 2016
Nagy, tartós hab, szűretlen, borostyán szín. Citrusos, malátás-banános, búzás illat. Íze enyhébb, gyümölcsösebb mint a szokásos búzasöröké, de ízjegyeiben tipikus. Utóíze a kortyot viszi tovább, de a gyümölcs gyorsan lecseng, a búzasörös aroma marad még egy darabig. Nem sok test szorult belé, de nem vizes. Könnyed, frissítő, de az alkoholtartalma miatt csak óvatosan. Becsapós sör.

nathanvc (185) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAY 5, 2016
Pours hazy golden with an orange hue and a huge foamy white head. The aroma has malts, banana and other fruits, wheat, yeast and caramel. It tastes medium to heavy sweet with a light wheaty finish that gives it a bitter touch. Creamy mouthfeel, pleasant carbonation and refreshing. Better than, say, Erdinger, but not as good as a Paulaner.
