50cl bottle. Hazy opaque orange color with a huge off-white head that diminishes fairly quickly. Smell wheat and lightly banana. Taste wheat, banana and sweetness. Low to medium carbonation, a bit low bodied.

DutchMark (98) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2014
Nice weizen. Flavor is good but a bit weak. It has notes of banana, caramel and of course wheat and yeast. Carbonation is pleasant. I like the style and this one is traditional and has character. If you like hefe weizens it’s worth a try.

Dark yellow color, good creamy off-white head. Banana fruity, malty aroma. Medium-bodied. Fruity banana and apple flavors. A bit lame finish but otherwise quite ok.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Bottled@PbF VIII. Hazy golden colour with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is wheat, berries, citrus and some wooden notes. Flavour is sweet wheat, floral and fruity notes. Actually, for being an Ur-Weizen this feels quite fresh and innovative for being German.

laiti (4943) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
50 cl bottle @ PBF VIII, BBE19.12.2013
Aroma has toffee and ripe bananas (the nth time I wrote this, enough weizens already?). Flavour has ripe bananas, some toffee and strong yeasty notes. A hefeweizen? A dunkelweizen I’d call this one.
