Fatehunter (1289) - 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.

wimpyjoe (4206) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle from Nissa, Hebden Bridge. Deeper dark orange colour with no head. Excellent hefeweizen style which is potent in its aroma and strong tasting too with a fine balance of malt, yeast and wheat.

Mooi troebel bier met een kleine schuimkraag. Mooie smaak van ongefilterd bier maar beetje droog op de nasmaak.

martjoobolut (813) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 17, 2014
0,5L bottle, BB 22.07.2015. Pours hazy amber with white head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is sweet, banana, malt, wheat. Flavor is sweet, fruits, malt, caramel, spicy notes, some citrus, and some hoppy notes. Overall: lovely weizen.

Fisler (26) - GERMANY - OCT 10, 2014
Ordentliches Weißbier, leichte Süße. Besser als sonst übliche Weißbiere aus dem Discounter. Gute Alternative, wenn Paulaner und Erdinger zu herb sind. Leicht bananig.

Marduk (2811) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 8, 2014
500ml bottle. Soggy brown color. Looks like raw apple juice. Tiny to almost no head. Banana, sweet, grainy notes in aroma. Grainy, banana and sweet notes in taste. Typical and nothing special. Soft carbonation.

YantarCoast (148) - Moscow, RUSSIA - OCT 3, 2014
500ml bottle from Moscow supermarket. Pours a murky toffee colour with an big, fluffy head that is characteristic of hefes. Rich aroma of banana and clove. Very nice example of a German hefeweizen.

Przyjemny przedstawiciel niemieckiego Hafeweizen. Największym minusem jest zbyt duża kwaskowość

adamnowek (144) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2014
All I smell is banana and it’s delicious (and I don’t even like bananas). Vanilla on the tongue. Well balanced sweetness.

TavernWench (3) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014 does not count
500ml bottle, pours cloudy gold/orange with 2-finger off-white head and carbonation rising up middle of the glass. Lots of lacing on the head. The aroma is a whack of banana with clove and subtle hints of lemon and vanilla. The flavour is some banana with spicy notes, leading to dry finish.
