Tap at Pizza Port OB. Cloudy brownish yellow with a one finger white head, fading to a thick film before long. Also, in a shaker pint. Lots of banana esters in the nose, some old grain. Flavor continues with fairly strong banana, but the spicy clove helps things from getting seemingly sweet. Nice balance in the flavor, didnít think itíd be spicy enough from the nose. Not getting the old grain in the flavor. Scant bitterness, dry finish with a little wheat. Moderate prickly carbonation with a medium body. Actually pretty solid, have never even heard of this brewery, perhaps a newly acquired import?

Van de tap als Maiselís hefe weisse. Geeloranje kleur mooie fijne kraag. Ruikt naar banaan en kruidnagel, smaakt idem met een wat bitterzure afdronk. Mocht wat voller van smaak zijn.

Reid (2300) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Crowler purchased from Growl Movement in Salem OR $6 Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a large thick and frothy off white head. Very strong fruity/over ripe bananas aromas. Sweet pink apples come to mind for some reason. Nice. Taste similar to aroma but has a nice creamy aspect. Excellent mouth feel silky smooth. A very good drinkable weiss bier.

Pudelek (324) - Gýrny Slýnsk / Oberschlesien, - AUG 2, 2016
Piwo lane 0,5 we Wrocławiu. Kolor brązowawy, piana szybko opada i osadza się. Aromat pszeniczno-bananowy, w smaku też lekko wędzone. Dobry, niemiecki pszeniczniak słusznie wysoko oceniany.

Gehbe (173) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - AUG 1, 2016
Cloudy amber with a nice offwhite head. Nose of spice, banana, yeast, lemon. Tastes sourish with some sweetness, well balanced. Creamy texture, high carbonation. A nice hefeweizen, but no memorable perks.

NikitaDE (36) - Minsk / Schweinfurt, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 16, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2016 Grainy aroma. Dark amber color. Big and very soft foam. Medium carbonation. The taste is yeast, hops, caramel with a bit sourness. Just wonderful aftertaste. Very mild and slightly sweet. The beer is a very drinkable and gentle.
