MoritzF (8676) - - 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

At Belgrade Eighth Tasting, round two. Bottle. Nice yeasty haze, white-yellow and soft white foam. Herbal, clove, lots of chardonnay/white wine yeast. Good funk. Body is lighter, quite dry. Interesting beer, good farmhouse and some Belgian character. Quite fine

massingasetta (409) - München, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2015
This is an interesting Weizenbier. It has flashes of a modern and also of a traditional beer. It is fruity and solidly wheaty in the aftertaste and when you first swallow. A good beer that hits the mark.

KyotoLefty (7540) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 1, 2015
Tap at the Brewery restaurant. Beautiful dark golden-pastel color with a tall head. Fruity, lemony nose, wheat, some clove. A bit sulfury and strange, though original. Metallic lemon. Light and refreshing bit probably not exactly right.

Beerhunter111 (10456) - Hasborn, GERMANY - FEB 13, 2015
(as Roppelt Weizenbier, 4.9 ABV) Trübes strohgelbes Weizen mit einer ordentlichen weißen Schaumkrone. Geruch fruchtig hefig, würzig, hopfig. Geschmack bananig, hefig, süß, spritzig, die Süße nimmt zum Abgang hin etwas ab.

Cloudy golden colour with a white head that leaves a nice lacing. Wheat and banana aroma. Rich banana and some wheat flavour.

MartinT (8550) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
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 (9287) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 18, 2014
Tap(@Roppelt’s 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 Lagers…

BeerViking (3158) - 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.

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 it’s still light and agile. Finish is even better. A mix of malt, hops and tropical fruit with banana. I doubt I’ve had a better weisse. I’ve had 2 mouthfuls and I love it already. Carbonation is perfect, it’s there to add crispness, but not too gassy. It has a sparkle in the background I’ve never had before and it’s hoppy too. I actually think I’m in love, if this was a woman, I’d marry her. Touch of coconut, mango. The sherbert hop finish is simply delightful. So clean and yet so intense, yet light, tropical, fruity, it’s like nothing I’ve ever had.
