BiddleBrau (1163) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Older bottle so this may not be the fairest rating. Golden/orange color with thinner white head and visible carbonation, krystal clear. Faint lemon aroma and some sourness (the ’old’ part perhaps?). Definitely a funk in this one, but a good, tart funk. I’m still chalking this up to the age here but it tastes a bit like Bret. Spritzy as the description says, is accurate. Lite and tangy. Not typical Bavarian wheat but good. Whether this is accurate of a fresh Plank wheat, not sure but the bottle I had was good and funky.

KyotoLefty (9295) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 24, 2012
500 ml Bottle. Light to medium brown with a high, fine head. Color like a Schneider. Nice nose, rich and subtle and unique: banana, apricot, light smoke, citrus, light caramel. Complex and lovely. Not very sweet, bready, spicy, chocolate, light tartness, light banana. Very balanced and complex. Delicious. Good tangy edge, very drinkable. Clean, full. World-class, and as good as its (festival, not RB) reputation.

fdomig (831) - München, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2012
500ml bottle. Aroma is slightly algae-ish with nuts and malt, yeast. Appearance is cloudy brown with a white head. Taste is sour and sweet. Has a very nice, caramel and malt aftertaste, almost slightly smokey. Overall a very nice Weissbier.

nick76 (4379) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2012
The aroma starts out malty and slightly fruity and spicy but then it hits you with metal. The appearance is golden with a huge head and clearly filtered which is the opposite of what it says on the bottle. The taste is pleasant but unremarkable. The palate is average. Overall a disappointing beer.

jkwood04 (5280) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 7, 2012
500ml bottle in a weizen glass. Pours golden with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, wheat, and light hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. Decent for the style but nothing stands out.

inbirraveritas (1500) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 9, 2012
Sörmanufaktúra, Bp. Unclear amber brown pour with a rocky whipped creamy off-white head. Sweet-tart smell. Sourish-tart aroma ruled by green apples escorted by some butterscotch, citrusses, brown breadcrumb and fermented bananas, mouthfeel’s slick. Tart finish with green apples again followed by citrusses, spices and some metallic notes, which leaves a tart aftertaste behind.

Hugi (475) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2012
Dark-amber coloured hazy with a big macroporic head. Intensive smell of pear, apples and yeast. Tastes like pear and apple, also raisin, a bit of banana, yeast. Light bitterness and full body. Lively carbonization.

Pours a thick, syrupy mess. Active carbonation puts syrupy head that builds and builds and builds. Nice yeast aroma but the sweetness overwhelms it. Almost unpleasant to drink. I homebrew and this appears like it wasnt fully fermented. Whether bad quality control or just the style - I greatly dislike this. I did however learn that if you give everything a 1 rating, the beer still gets a 0.5 overall rating. That is the only thing saving this from a 0.

laiti (8069) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2012
50 cl bottle. Rated on 18.11.2009
Murky, dark orange colour, disappearing head. Aroma is sweetish with banana, wheat and some yeast. Flavour is somewhat stale with ripe banana and some wheat. Good.

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein Weizen von dunklem Bernstein, die Krone ist fein und cremig, einfach prachtvoll anzusehn, so im Ganzen! Der Geruch ist hefig würzig, dezent fruchtig. Der Antrunk erfolgt absolut grandios hefig-sahnig, mit leichtem Bananen-Aroma. Sogar eine minimale Röstigkeit tut sich hinzu. Dieses Bier platzt fast vor Aroma. Die Mitte wird etwas fruchtig-säuerlicher, die Würzigkeit bleibt bis zum Finish vollstens erhalten. Ein absolut geniales Weizen. Wohl mit das Beste, welches ich in letzter Zeit verköstigt habe!
