MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, - AUG 11, 2012
(swing top bottle) Cloudy, golden colour with a blond and thick foamy head. Yeasty and moderately wheaty aroma with strong notes of banana and a tinge of apricot. Mildly sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a creamy carbonation. Present wheat-character with primary notes of banana; a bit slim and mildly sweet and bana-fruity finish. A clean and decent Hefeweizen. 11.VIII.12

My Bottom Line:
This highly floral Weissbier knows how to impress with well-controlled banana esters, lightly doughy yeast and mineral angles.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy yellow.
-Drinkability is very high.
-Effervescence is soft and engaging. Befitting a keller.
-The floral component is quite important and gives this brew lots of personality.

On tap at their keller.

pivnizub (9000) - Bochum, PorķřŪ, GERMANY - JUN 18, 2014
Tap(@Roppeltís Keller): Pale golden with a greenish sheen, cloudy, creamy and lacy and stable and mid-sized white head; sourish - slightly lemony - yeasty nose with a mineralic background and a tinge of bubble-gum; light to moderate sourish-sweetish flavour, a subdued bitterness is nearly detectable; slighly lingering fruity finish with illusions of bubblegum and a very faint tartness. Not my favourite Weizen, in Franconia You better drink divine LagersÖ

BeerViking (2630) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Tap at the Keller, cloudy orange with white head, orange and banana nose, bready, fruity and slightly dry body. Typical Franconian weissbier. OK, but a bit dull.

harrisoni (14009) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2013
On tap at Roppelts Keller, Stiebarlimach. Apparently this is Rittmayer Weizen, but hey. Excellent. I love the glass, I love how this brewery is in a tiny village and produces 2 brilliant beers. Aroma of peach and banana but a creamy tropical banana almost as intense as dried banana. Mouthfeel in perfect. Full but itís still light and agile. Finish is even better. A mix of malt, hops and tropical fruit with banana. I doubt Iíve had a better weisse. Iíve had 2 mouthfuls and I love it already. Carbonation is perfect, itís there to add crispness, but not too gassy. It has a sparkle in the background Iíve never had before and itís hoppy too. I actually think Iím in love, if this was a woman, Iíd marry her. Touch of coconut, mango. The sherbert hop finish is simply delightful. So clean and yet so intense, yet light, tropical, fruity, itís like nothing Iíve ever had.

Ernest (6306) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Draft at the Roppelt keller. Head is mostly lasting. Body is cloudy medium yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/bread), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of clove, banana, lemon, dried pineapple. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Excellent rendition...lots of clove to balance out the juicy banana and pineapple esters. Not as fluffy and lush in the mouth as Iíd like, but wonderfully balanced with bracing acidity. Great brewer.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2011
Itís unclear golden with a huge, white, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of slightly perfumed fruits as in peach and raspberries, wheat and light yeast. The same notes are found in the sweet flavour, that has a slightly dry finish with a very light spiciness.
