2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Low amounts of yeasty banana aroma. This one was more towards the tart end. Watery body. Serving: Bottle

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2015 500 ml bottle. Organic Hefeweizen from Whole Foods. A subtle yet distinct light wheat flavor pervades, free of the usual wheat beer spices. On the drier side, but does have some sweetness. As the flavor advances yeast begins with a light, grassy and hay like presence at the very end. Good carbonation. An extremely smooth, refreshing and somewhat subdued Hefeweizen. Unique.

Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow reminiscent of fresh lemon juice and a big fluffy head. Aromas are faint - wheat, yeastiness, biscuit and a touch of citrus. It's definitely lacking some basic hefeweizen characteristics.

16.9 oz bottle pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of grains, malts, caramel, and yeast. Taste is caramel, yeast, grains and malts.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 500ml. -from Rudat Dortmund. I’ve spent last few years chasing for Pinkus Müller beers and now when I finally found them all three are just average (Original, Hefe Weizen and Pils). Pitty. Cloudy yellow/orange coloured, medium sized white head, let’s say wet yeasty nose. Slight malty, mild wheaty and yeasty, tartish fruity, and hint of caramel with light fruity acidity in the finish. Hmmmm...average weizen without any noticable characteristics to be stated in MJ’s 500 beers book.

Thanks Ogi! This is a strange bird, from the, well, unique if anything label design to the taste itself... anyway... shiny murky yellow body with a small white head. Fruity, dusty, yeasty aroma, qutie complex. The taste, however... thin, prickly carbonation, sourish (subdued lemony tartness), very vague bitterness, no phenols, no esters really - quite unique, not exactly inviting, pleasant and yet not, halfway between a regular hefeweizen and a gueuze. Glad to have tried it though I’m unsure what to make of it.

Light cloudy yellow white disappaiting head. Grainy aroma. Taste is rather dry, some lactose, almost like a Berliner Weisse without the sour element. Really doesn’t have the sweet banana elements you’d expect in a good hefeweizen. I guess it’s unique anyway.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Een troebel, sinas-kleurig geel bier met een mooie luchtige kraag. Het aroma is iets zurig, maar niet echt op de voorgrond. Een vol bittere smaak met de toets van alcohol, maar ook veel koolzuur. Een iets zurige nasmaak blijft even hangen.
A bit cloudy, somewhat "fanta-orange" colored beer with a nice full layer of foam. The aroma is somewhat sour, but remains in the background. A nice full bitter taste with the touch of alcohol. A somewhat sour aftertaste remains for a while.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 50cl. From local organic shop. Cloudy pale yellow-white, good frothy white head, diminishes almost completely rather quick, almost no lacing; aroma yeast, wheat, lemon, light banana, some clove; taste light sweet, light sour, slightly bitter, citrus notes, peppery; medium body, watery texture, average carbonation, aftertaste light sweet and sour, as well as light bitterness, spicy mouthfeel; overall an odd weizen, quite different from the South German style.

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.
