EithCubes (5618) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Bottled as Löwenbräu Buttenheim Weissbier, by 08.04.13. Stale air in the nose, pushing autolysis, even in the glass. Pours golden with a rocky white head. Rubber and plastic invade even the sweet malty taste, light yeast and strong citrus, watery feel. Would like to try again.

kevnic2008 (11353) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2012

blipp (8178) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Draft as Lowenbrau Weissbier at Kellerwald. Pours hazy golden yellow with a white head. Yeasty and fruity, fresh banana, a hint of lemon, light clove-like spicy notes. Sweet fruity banana in the finish. This is damn good.

adnielsen (10484) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle in Schlitz, labelled Löwenbräu Buttenheim Weissbier. Brownish golden appearance with a nice white head. Fairly spicy clove, somewhat musty/bready, moderately wheat malty, yeasty nose. A bit tangy/tart, quite yeasty and bready, moderate clove flavor with some other fruity esters but the yeast is at the forefront of the flavor.

jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Bottle. The appearance is hazy golden with a massive white hea.d Light spring water and banana nose. Classic hefe. The taste is more spring water, light wheat and more banana. Simple, clean, and uncontroversial. Overall, decent.

jfb (5478) - Freising, GERMANY - APR 11, 2011
(bottle) pours a murky golden colour with a few floaties and an everlasting frothy white head. aroma of wheat and clove, with a hint of smoke, sulphur and herbal hops. flavour is mostly wheat and sugared popcorn, with light touches of caramel and grain. medium-bodied with way too fizzy carbonation.

Bottle @ Lowenbrau, Buttenheim. Pours unclear yellow with a creamy egg white head. Dry and fresh hefeweizen. A bit of banana and some citrus. Lively carbonation. Smooth palate. Good beer from a great brewery

shrubber85 (10670) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Bottle. Sweet banana, orange, light clove and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy orange-yellow color with nice big head. Sweet orange, lemon, clove and wheat malt flavor. Medium body - low carbonation. Not bad, not great.

TimE (5046) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 25, 2009
@Kellarwald. Very cloudy, yellow brown color with a huge banana nose with a touch of caramel. Very carbonated, almost prickling. Very clovey mouth. Big estry banana finish. Superb.

Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2009
As Lowenbrau Weissbier, @ Lowenbrau Buttenheim brewery. Hazy yellow with good head retention. Hefe esters in the aroma. Very fruity with acidity in the end. Thin palate. Spritzy, dry weizen. Drier than the aroma suggests in fact. Nice citrus here. Vanishes quickly with no stickiness at all.
