Fatehunter (1754) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Looks great with two fingers of head on a darker straw colored body, a few bubbles are visible. The aroma is nice: grain and hay. The taste is fairly malty with a moderate bitterness. A bit different for the style, but good. The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation. Enjoyable, but not a traditional hefeweizen.

DeanF (1912) - Northwest Territories, CANADA - OCT 4, 2015
Soft but unattractive aroma of rotting malt with no head and slightly foggy brown red body. Flavour is wheat beer with hints of honet and cherry. A little murky and lacking finesse.

Grisza77 (173) - Poznań, POLAND - OCT 4, 2015
Ciemnozłote, mętne piwo o obfitej pianie, która zdobi szkło i redukuje się do mgiełki na powierzchni. Aromat intensywny bananowy. W smaku owocowe, bananowe z nutą goździka. Goryczka niska, zgodna ze stylem. Ogólnie bardzo dobry weizen, smak i aromat dość wyraźny, warty spróbowania.

Cristobal37 (422) - Canyon Lake, California, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Perfect weisse aroma. Very appealing based on the scent and appearance. Doesn’t let down after the first sip. Up front silky wheat and crisp with a light but balanced tartness. Sadly the palate ends abruptly and the taste seems to warp into a bready fresh baked biscuit dough flavor which wasn’t so nice. Otherwise a really cool weisse that’s mandatory tasting material.

Aroma: Sweet fruity aroma of banana and orange, clover, wheat, fresh. Slightly to timid. Appearance: Turbid amber/orange couloured beer with a off-white head. Taste/Palate: Ana amazing refreshing weizen, full of banana, oranges and wheat. The mouth feel is really good.
