COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer style is over 400 years old, and continues to enjoy overwhelming popularity. Offering low hop bitterness, it is easy to enjoy. It pours very hazy, with a light gold color... we say it’s like summertime in a glass. Bitter orange peel and fresh coriander add zest and depth to this light, refreshing beer.

Bottle. Cloudy blond with a short, fizzy white head. Aroma is citrusy with lots of yeast, wheat, sweet malt and light spice. Up front the taste is yeast and citrus with light bubblegum, wheat, toasted malt and light spice following it up. Body is light with a strong, prickly carbonation. Finishes with sweet malt, citrus notes, yeast, wheat, light grains and soft spice.

Appearance: Light cloudy haze with lemon hues under a white head that fades into a solid layer, albeit thicker along the sides. Swirls thick but no lace.
Nose: Citrus zest followed by spice, all of which are wrapped up in soft white wheat breads. Delicate orange blossom esters. Chewy yeasty quality to the wheat. Coriander.
Palate: Chewy sweet breads with white wheat along the sides. Green grass, spice, and orange blossom in my breath. White pepper, coriander, and rose water. Key lime zest.
Final Thoughts: Not too shabby albeit not too complex either. I would have appreciated a little more oomph and a little more depth to the flavors present. Overall though, I’d drink it again if offered considering I drank the whole 6pack that had gifted to me.

weihenweizen (2019) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Chilled 12 oz. bottle at Chuchkey poured into a glass. Pours hazy pale yellow with small white head with dissapates quickly. Aroma is rich orange, little lacing, light body, and little carbonation. Taste is nice rich orange, some slightly bitter orange peel, with a hint of coriander which peaks at times. Refreshing, but rich orange makes this better than most.

Pours a pale yellow with a bit of haze. The aroma is very nice with wheat, some lemon, and some spice. The flavor follows with a refreshingly dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing, Rob! Fair warning: I generally hate this style. However, I didn’t hate this one. The coriander didn’t get too dirty and the single orange character was decent. Big orange zest aroma, kind of unique. Flavors hold onto the orange and carry it through in a crystalline, kind of sugared and dried orange peel kind of way. The light sweetness follows through and this stays okay. It is singular and not amazing, but not rough, either.

Good brew. Sweet fruit notes and spicy undertones union drinking. Good but not my style. Ok brew.

On tap. Cloudy straw color with a small foamy head and some lacing. Aroma is earthy and Belgian yeast. Taste is heavy lemon and Belgian yeast. Mouthfeel is a foamy - a bit soapy. Carbonation is soft. Overall, a light refreshing beer.
