KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Bottle. Poured dark murky orange with an average sized white creamy head that had fair lacing. The aroma was heavy with yeast, mild grain malt, a light citus hop with notes of banana, coriander and cloves. It tasted light, sweet and quite yeasty at first and finished with this light sweet-bitter acidic yeasty flavor with hints of citrus, spices and a touch of banana with the flavor lasting an average amount of time. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a soft carbonation. Overall a nice light full flavored Hefe-weizen.

Kauge (445) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle. BB 09.2015. Beautiful deep orange colour, very hazy, head creamy white and fluffy with good retention and thick lacing. Nose is modest sweetness: wheat, yeast and unripe bananas. Taste is wheaty-fruity sweet with a sourish finish, also some modest bitterness detectable. Flat carbonation, some thin bubbling when swallowing. Faint spiciness later on. Nice.

bursprak (909) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2015
Tap @ Fermentoren Aarhus. Hazy dark golden pour with a decent head. Sweat, sweet bananas, clove, light yeast, grains and some grassy notes.

Bottle. Very much a classical german hefe. very drinkable, it doesn’t suffer from cloying sweetness like some others in this style.

tmoreau (2688) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2015
On tap at Warren’s Ale House in Wheaton, IL., and shaker served, showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a thick, fairly lasting, off white/light tan layer of creamy head foam, and clingy spots & strands of lacing. The nose was smooth wheat, banana, light spice as clove, lemon, and a cider-like, apple scent. Light bodied, with lively carbonation, and a pleasant creaminess to the mouthfeel, the taste was similar notes as the nose, but waned some as it fell off in expression & texture. Dried a bit for the finish. Still tasty & refreshing.

rami_pl (207) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Butelka, Pod Mosteczkiem. Ladnie jasno pomaranczowe z przyzwoita piana. W aromacie dosc ubogo ale bardzo milo, czyli typowe nuty pszeniczniaka: Banany, gozdziki, lekki chleb, minimalna cytryna. W smaku kwaskowate + odbicie aromatow. Pelne, ale nie tak pelne jak mozna by sie spodziewac, bardziej wytrawne niz wiele weizenow. Goryczki praktycznie brak, alkoholu praktycznie nie czuc. Na jakies wspaniale wrazenia trudno liczyc, niemniej ciezko cokolwiek temu piwu zarzucic. hmmm "sesyjne" :)

Tap. Nice, creamy, longlasting foam. Intense wheat aroma. Decent taste with clear white head. I’m not into weissbier, but this one is great.

Not a bad weiss, but nothing special, everything in style. Little sharp finish.

suurjuust (1374) - ESTONIA - JAN 19, 2015
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.

strap (505) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - JAN 18, 2015
on tap in Lermoos, Austria. an ok Weiss beer. not the best out of Bavaria, but it will do the trick. standard aroma with banana and cloves. only down side is that i felt it slightly watered down.
