One of the best hefe, all organic. Nice, clean, fresh, good yeast... can’t go wrong with this one.

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.

slowrunner77 (1743) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 11, 2014
"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."

Alengrin (1716) - BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2014
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.

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 (3140) - 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 (707) - 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 (483) - 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!
