maus (32) - 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.

lusikka (6205) - 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 (287) - 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

SNL (225) - - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle. Clear golden pour, white head. Wheaty nose, taste is wheat and malts. Appears more like a pilsner than a wheat - but still a good beer. Average carbonation.

Jado (509) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2013
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a clear yellow-amber with a small but perisiting white head. The aromas are light but clove and cinnamon are the strongest, with some lemon and white bread. Taste is sweet initially with some lemon zest bitterness emerging in the mid-palate. Don’t get much in the way of banana or coriander typical of wheat beers, although there is a little bubblegum hiding away in there. Aqueous mouth feel. Soft finish with a bit of a floral aftertaste. A bit pedestrian really.
