superspak (4403) - Michigan, USA - DEC 17, 2013
500 ml bottle into weizen glass, unknown bottle code. Pours very hazy orange copper color with a 2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big banana, orange peel, lemon zest, pear, apple, grape, clove, wheat, bubblegum, bread, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, and hop notes; with good strength. Taste of orange peel, banana, pear, apple, grape, lemon zest, wheat, bread, bubblegum, clove, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Light wheat tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of orange peel, banana, pear, apple, grape, wheat, bread, bubblegum, clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, and hop flavors; with a nice malt/fruitiness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy, smooth, and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Hefeweizen. All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of yeast, malt, and hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

lusikka (7649) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2013
500 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy amber colour with a white thick head. Aroma of clove, tart citrusy notes and some banana notes. Flavour of sweet banana, orange zest, tartness, yeast and rather strong spiciness. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Refreshing. A nice tart-ish hefeweizen.

Idiosynkrasie (6070) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 22, 2013
500ml bottle. Cloudy dark golden to amber colour with thick, creamy, long lasting, white head. Really intense fruity aroma, lots of pear notes, some banana, clove. Taste is spicy yeasty, the fruit notes are less intense, more background-ish, still mostly pear, some banana, moderately sweet; full-bodied. Excellent.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Keg, BrewDog Brum, 16/11/13. Murky, slim capped honey amber viscous with condition. Huge aroma of strawberry, sherbet, banana, cream, champagne and clove. Massive rounded estery goodness full of Bazooka chew, banana, clove, cinnamon and.prosecco suggestions. Really solid weizen- in fact the best tap German beer I’ve ever had in the UK.

0.5 l bottle from the brewpub in Laaber... Nice clody brown-golden color, stable head... Tasteful hop and wheat aroma of banana and some citrus... Quite perfect traditional Weizen taste, mild, refreshing and full of aroma... Mild fruity ending...

maekchu (3323) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 18, 2013
Draught at the Great Japan Beer Festival in Osaka (7/13/2013). Sweet banana nose, with good spice (just right). Dirty brownish swill color. Ripe banana flavors throughout, with a spicy bite in the finish. Medium body. Well-made hefe.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4245) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 15, 2013
On tap at the GJBF Osaka. kind of a cloudy browinsh gold color, more of a banana aroma than any other weizen I had at the fest with a hint of spiciness. Definitely more of a fruity than spicy weizen. Very nice but I prefer cloves over banana. A rich malty body, good stuff.
