3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Presentation: 500mL brown bottle, served in a weizen glass.
Appearance: Develops a two finger head that goes down a bit and then stays there. It has a cloudy, pale yellow color.
Smell: The aroma has a refreshing fruit zest character to it, of lemon mainly. There’s also faint malt, hop and yeast scents in the background.
Taste: Zesty citrus flavor mixed with some hop bitterness and a hint of malt sweetness. All of this followed up by a bit of yeast chalkiness in the background.
Mouthfeel: Dry, light, and refreshing, with little carbonation.
Overall: Just because it has a refreshing character, doesn’t mean it’s still not a flavorful beer. On the contrary, tt’s great because it’s versatile. You can just enjoy it on it’s own, and really get into it, or just sip on it to cool down without giving it much though. You can also have it with food and it won’t be a distraction, but it’ll be more interesting than your average ale or lager. Just a good all around beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A bottle from one of the health food shops along Xin Long Road, drunk at home. Aroma: slightly fruity. Appearance: cloudy, pale amber, head dissapates. Palate: light, fizzy, a fairly abrupt finish. Taste: lightly bitter. This is pretty good - I’d drink it again, particularly in summer.

500ml bottle. Cloudy, yellow-ish, pale golden colour with average, frothy, white head. Yeasty aroma has a minimally pungent spicy touch, lemonade-like wheaty basis, a cautious touch of banana, minimally sweet-ish bready background. Taste is minimally tart, wheaty, grainy, diluted hints of banana, a touch of banana leaf. So-so.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Labeled as "Pinkus Weizen Beer," and I assum that this is the right one. Small wheaty and grainy nose. Hazy dull yellow color, small head. Flavors are, again, wheat and grain, with maybe a touch of citrus and a hint of tartness, and then it’s done. Thin-medium body. Well.... it is a wheat, but not the best.

Ein angenehm weiches Weizen. Erfrischend, irgendwo zwischen leicht wässrig und nicht zu dick, durchaus süffig. Geschmacklich angenehm leichte Banane, gute Carbonisierung.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Originally rated on 9/3/08. Dont know if I am reviewing the same beer as everyone else here but my label says pinkus organic hefeweizen so here it goes. Pinkus poured a rather clear yellow body, not any usual haze. Heavy carbonation gave it a bite, but even with the thick head it didnt leave hardly any lace. Aroma was incredibly faint of banana, no flavor whatsoever. Mouthfeel was akin to any light beer, incredibly watery. This was more spritzer than beer. Will not purchase again

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy pale color with high white and foamy head. Aroma is yeasty, citric. Taste reminds me somehow a radler. It’s lemonade like, a bit sourish, but too weak body for me. Drinkable beer, but not a Best hefe weissen.
