2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from a pint bottle into a weizen glass on 03.02.14.
A: Yellow. Typical opaque yeast cloud at the top of glass. More see through at the bottom. 1/4 finger head.
S: Lemon with some bitterness.
T: Tangy lemon dominates. Wheat is there too. There’s also a strange funk or skunk flavor.
M: Smooth. Watery.
O: This wasn’t a complex hef. It was too watery and had no yeast flavor. The funk or skunk quality almost prompted me to drain pour it, but I held on and didn’t get sick afterwards. Maybe it was a bad bottle. There are many better hefs out there.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a two finger fizzy white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is lightly fruity with some bubble gum esters and a light fluffy yeastiness. The flavor is a bit bland for the style, not a whole lot of influence from the yeast, it’s mostly just wheat and bready malt with an underlying yeastiness. Some light clove notes on the late finish. Light bodied with soft gentle carbonation and a slight softness from the yeast. Decent effort, maybe a touch bland, but drinkable.

Gift from martjoobolut, thanks! Unclear yellowish orange, white head that quickly dissipates. Nose is acidic, citrus, wheat, fruity hints. Flavor is malt, wheat, acidic hints, citrus, mild yeast and cardboard. Watery to thin mouthfeel. OK, but nothing special.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pinkus Organic Hefe-Weizen has a thick, white, crackly head, a very hazy golden appearance, stray bubbles, which become even hazier when the caked bottom contents are swished & poured in. Lacing is present, but dies away rather quickly. The aroma is quite odd- various sour cheese smells are picked up (cream cheese, cottage cheese, colby). Taste is of white wheat bread, tap water, sourness, and dirt. No coriander or banana was detected. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, soft, and prickly. Pinkus Organic Hefe Weizen finishes refreshing and easy drinking. RJT

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Transfer from BA review on 9-21-13-
Poured from bottle into a weizen glass
Appearance – Pours a massively hazy yellow color with a nice thick pure white head. THE thick head persists for a very long time, slowly fading over time to leave a great level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The smell is heavy of wheat and yeast with a moderately strong smell of spices. The spices are mainly of clove and cardamom but are joined by some light pepper as well. Along with these smells is a big lemon citrus and grassy aroma producing a nice yeasty and lemony Hefeweizen smell overall.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and smooth wheat taste. It is on the drier side from the start, but does have some sweetness of lemonade and banana. As the flavor advances yeast begins finding its way to the tongue, with it growing rather strong at the end of the taste. While the yeast gets stronger so too does a lighter clove flavor. At the same time the yeast and clove grow stronger the sweeter flavors of a lemonade nature lessen, with a light grassy and hay like flavor coming to the taste at the very end and combining with the rest to leave a very smooth but somewhat subdued Hefeweizen flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side as well. A bit more carbonation may have been slightly more fitting as it would have complemented nicely the lighter body in making for a very easy drinking brew.
Overall – An alright Hefeweizen. It looks fantastic and has a good aroma, but the flavors are just a bit too subdued and the carbonation is a bit too light. Just OK.

330 ml bottle, rated 2014-09-10 @ Heidelberg
Hazy yellow beer with little white head. Aroma has yeast, toffee, bubble gum and some banana. Flavor has yeast, toffee, vanilla and some pineapple. Palate is thin with strong carbonation. Finish has a mild bite of bitterness with aftertastes of yeast, some fruitiness and pineapple. Quite mild aromas and the fruitiness is not strong, not very refreshing. Bonus for being organic.

"Decent hefe with the requisite banana and clove aspects of the nose and flavor, but a little too thin and overly bubbly for my liking. Othewise ok, but that does away from the overall."

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Northern German interpretation of this style and therefore dryer and hoppier (almost a different substyle, one could argue). Yellowish white, creamy and rocky head, very stable, deep ochre yellow colour, cloudy, some greenish hue. Fresh wheat sourishness in the nose, soft malts, pepper, lemon, apple; soft malty taste, not really sweet, light fruitiness, minerals, yeasty, dry, sourishness stays till the end, where briefly some floral and peppery hops appear, but remaining very subtle. I missed the bananas in the aroma, guess I like the original Southern German variant better.
