VoodooBear (48) - San Juan, - MAY 12, 2013
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.

i was expecting much more considering the Pinkus Alt is very good. This pours like a standard hefe, it looks nice and cloudy dull yellow with some foam. But there is only an aroma of hops wheat and not much else---no Bavarian yeast with classic banana, bubble gum or clove aromas; I gave the beer a big deduction for that. Other than that, it is a basic beer without bitterness but also without any outstanding character...middle of the pack=boring.

Bamsen78 (3107) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2014
Draught @ the brewpub. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of malt, yeast and hops. Sourish, grainy flavour, with estery and hoppy notes. Rough finish. Looks and tastes like something between a Pilsener and a Kristallweizen. Drinkable but nothing special. Perhaps I expected sth else.

martjoobolut (649) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 18, 2014
0,5L bottle, BB 04.2015. Pours hazy golden with white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is sweet, fruity, grainy and perfumy. Flavor is sour, wheat, citrus, fruits and grains. Overall: too sour, disappointing weizen.

Not bad not great. Organic isn’t always better. Some wheat aromas. Flavors are citrus dominated. Some wheat. Watery.

Moravius (451) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 9, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2014 Flasche von Bio-Berlin. - Eigentlich ist Weizenbier ja nicht mein Fall - das ist meine erste Weizenbier-Bewertung auf RAB -, aber ein Pinkus-Bier ist immer einen Versuch wert. - Orangegelb mit leichtem Grünstich, sehr trüb, kurzlebiger Schaum. - In der Nase milde Hefe, grüne Äpfel, auch etwas Banane, aber angenehm frisch und leicht säuerlich, mit Hopfennoten, die an ein gutes fränkisches Kellerbier erinnern. - Antrunk überraschend spritzig mit betonter aber milder Säuerlichkeit, schlanker Hefe. Milde Noten von unreifem Obst, schwach zitroniger Hopfen. Mild rezent, schlank. Im Abgang leicht zitronig-grasiger Hopfen. Schwach bitterer, grasiger Nachtrunk. - Erfreulich untypisches Hefeweizen: spritzig und angenehm säuerlich, ohne bananige Süße. Enorm erfrischend und unbedingt probierenswert!

AgentAle (641) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Aroma is fairly subtle with light hints of yeast, lemon grass and citrus. Taste is a sweet yet dry grain profile. Finishes with a very subtle bitterness. Body is a pale gold with a pearl head that retains poorly

It pours with a large head. It is light hazy yellow.It does leave considerable lacing as the head disappears. It has an aroma of wheat, cheese, and lemons. It has a lemony taste with a standard wheat flavor.
