stevoj (2869) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 9, 2015
Aroma is more stale bread than normal weizen aromas. I would classify this as either a kristallweizen or what ale, its a far cry from a real German weizen. Taste is flat and bland, no bananas, clove or bubblegum to be had. This might have scored better as a wheat ale, but was marked way down compared to German hefes.

TedE (491) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2015
345ml bottle into glass. Pleasant wheat nose. Golden beer with no head, zero. Medium carbonation. Quite watery and thin but good finish. A bit bitter, nicely balanced with banana. A mixed bag.

RafeAU (390) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2014
bah, not too bad from within the crappy selection in an aussie bar. better than the usual lagers but no reason to get it other than nothing better being available. weak version of a hefe.

maus (44) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JUL 3, 2014
Poured from a bottle. About 6 months old. Golden clear colour, head dissipates fast. Taste is a bit acidic and fizzy. Spices, hops and all else is there, yet nothing spectacular.

Bottle. Some spices and wheat in the aroma. Dies about there. Was told this beer was better 10-15 years ago, not anymore. Avoid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lusikka (7102) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 26, 2014
345 ml bottle @ Aussie Bar, Tampere. Pours a slightly cloudy golden colour. Aroma of wheat, cardboard and some citrus. Flavour of wheat, toothpaste, sweetness and dough. Light bodied, high carbonation and a sharp, doughy, slightly bitter finish. Quite boring.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2014
A good session hefeweizen. Delivers what hefeweizens should, and not overly complex for the casual beer drinker. Aromas of banana and wheat with some lemon. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow with a white head. Taste reflects the aroma, with a little citrus peel also.

A real nice wheat beer, has been around for ages. Very morish, one is never enough
