3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle, poured into a Weizen glass.
Pale, cloudy orange color with large head that has excellent retention and good lacing.
Although I’m having it cold, the aroma is strong: wheat, yeast and lots of banana.
Taste is also strong and pleasant. Classic german hefeweizen with it’s fruity wheat taste.
Body feels light and smooth and carbonation is low, making it very drinkable.
My expectations were very low for this beer, mainly because I had the other Nenea Iancu beer (Bere Blonda Speciala) and I didn’t like it at all. But this one was surprisingly good. One of the few good local beers in Romania.

Thanks to Ciocanelu for this beer. A Bavarian Hefeweizen brewed for Romania… Interesting!
50 cl bottle, BB 10.12.2014, 14:47 /L8
The beer starts slightly sour and Weizen-typical. The mainpart is slightly sweet, Weizen-smooth. To the slightly in the background noticeable banana and clove comes a slightly mouldy taste, still a bit flat. Could be much more intense. The aftertaste is long, banana and clove, slightly sweet but in total a bit flat and boring…
Nice brew, but the aroma could be much more intense! --> 7/12/8/7

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head: off-white, medium, creamy, avg. retention. Colour: yellow-golden, murky.
Aroma: banana, bubble gum, lactic sourness, somewhat "stale". Taste: fruity, sourish and clove.
Apaprt from smaller head and slightly stale aroma, it is quite a normal hefeweizen. Not sure why the ratings are so low.

A rather plain wit beer, with no special signature. I was expecting a lot more and did not deliver.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Quite murky with light head. Funky aroma with tartness, nail polish remover and other unpleasantries. Full plasticy character with a slick mouthfeel. Taste is hugely yeasty, unrefined and not in a charming way.
