Benzai (9145) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, - NOV 17, 2012
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.

Normal Weizenbier. Bananas little bit koleander and cloves. Not the best Hefeweizen but probably better then the paulaner.

MichaelAwesome (4744) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2014
Klassisches Weizen mit ein wenig an suessen Fruechten und ausgewogener Hefigkeit. Recht sueffig, dabei natuerlich immer noch nur ein Hefeweizen.

McTapps (4749) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a cloudy dirty golden colour with steady head and smooth body. Aroma of yeast and wheat. Taste of yeast, light malt, overripe fruit salad and bread. Yeasty-dull finish. Average.

thanatosti (1000) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2014
50 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ the Marqt supermarket, Den Haag. Cloudy amber with a thick off-white head. Malty banana aroma. Taste is a bit odd, like water that has been too long in a plastic bottle. Weird aftertaste also. I don’t discount the fact that I had a bad bottle but for now this is not a weizen I like.

DutchMark (197) - 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.

TBone (13121) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2013
Bottled 500ml @PBFVIII
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.

Cunningham (4996) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2013
Appearance: Cloudy dark golden color with a thick white head that leaves a fine lacing.
Aroma: Wheat, toffee and banana.
Palate: Medium + body. Tad sweet and an ok bitterness. Average to rich carbonation.
Taste: Mild balanced wheat, mild fruity, toffee and balanced banana.
Overall impression: Nice refreshing and tasty hefe. A mix between helles weisse and dunkel weisse.
Personal stats: Bottle from a trade with Grima

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.
