Orange beer, quickly diminishing off-white head. Nose is minerals, mild fruitiness and wheat. Flavor is banana, spice and more wheat, caramel hints. Clean and simple, easy to drink, but not terribly interesting.

Przylus (165) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 15, 2015
Aromat bardzo intensywny, pszeniczny, przyjemnie słodowy, "gęsty", leciutko kwaskowy. Dobrze wyczuwalne owoce: banany, jabłka i brzoskwinie oraz akcenty kojarzące się z dobrej jakości mąką. Barwa bursztynowa, mętne, duże wysycenie. Piana drobna i średnia, długa, wysoka, pozostawiająca piękny lacing. W smaku niesamowicie pełne, chlebowe, słodko-kwaskowe, świeże. Skojarzenie z rozgryzionym ziarnem pszenicy. Oprócz tego banany i jabłka. Niezła goryczka, jak na weizena.

KW92 (49) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 8, 2015
WYGLĄD: Barwa mętne złoto. Piana wysoka, trwała, drobno pręcherzykowa. Solidne nagazowanie, piwo piękne prezentuje się w szklance do weizen-ów. Oblepia szkło (lecing). AROMAT: Oczywiście banonowo-goździkowy, w tle guma balonowa, nuty chlebowe oraz ziołowe (przypominające świeżą bazylię) SMAK: Słodowość oraz goździki, przełamane bananową słodyczą, łagodny posmak gumy balonowej. Bardzo dobry hefeweizen!

Pretty yummy beer. I can imagine drinking this on a hot day and feeling refreshed. It had a quick dunkel taste which turned to wit sweet and light.

VamboladeTolly (330) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle @ De Tolly joogipood. Pours hazy orange body with white head. Aroma of classical hefeweisse, sweet, malty, wheat, banana. Taste is malty, wheat, raw banana, sweet, some sourness. Good one.

TheCametron (1901) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle. Had it many, many times but am just now rating it. One of the absolute classic German Hefes. Pours cloudy Orange with a thick, generous White head. Smells of banana and wheat. Tastes slightly honey sweet with sourish wheat and typical yeasty banana notes. Full bodied, smooth and drinkable. It stands shoulder to shoulder with my favourite Hefeweizens.

thirstyrabbit (1190) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle. Dark yellow body, medium head. Yeasty aroma with more wheat than banana or spices. Mostly wheaty taste with low level spiciness. Standard German Hefeweizen - clean and refreshing but generally quite unmemorable, as are most of the examples of the style in my opinion.
