Bottle. Hazy brown color with huge beige long-lasting head. Aroma of banana, dry plums, some spice (clove). Taste is semi-sweet, with good amount of notes and nuances. So nice aftertaste! Long, rich and smooth. Should be sipped for better experience. Brilliant weizen!

leebotton (219) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2014
From: Brewers Droop, Bristol How: Bottle (end dated 2015.06.18) Blood alc: 0mg/100ml Aroma hints banana and fruity / berry spices, some diacetyl. Big foamy lasting white head which lets through more spicey aroma as it slowly fades. Flavour is deep, fruity / estery with a little banana, a lot of spice and fairly dark but still having a lightness. Mouthfeel is silky smooth. The only thing I’m not so sure about is a slight plasticyness near the end of the mouthful, but I think that is just the wheat

Dark brown body with a beige head. Aroma is sweet dark fruits, some spice, malt. Taste is sweet with light bitterness. Very refreshing. Medium to thin body but mouthfeel is sleakier than what I expected from the looks. Very nice beer.

Bottle from wick at both ends, Sheffield. Chestnut brown with a good foamy off white head. Aroma is banana and clove, some Christmas spice and dry fruit. Taste is slightly spicy and sweet with some sour tang. Nice fizz and foam on the tongue. Like this one.

mile (3043) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown, cloudy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty – wheaty and sweetish aroma, banana and fruitiness with notes of "sahti". Body is medium to full, malty – wheaty and sweetish flavor, some fruitiness and banana, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty –wheaty and sweetish, some fruitiness and light banana, light alcohol and spiciness.Fruity weizen bock - too sweet for me. Hides 8,2% well. OK but "Don’t Believe the Hype".

aroma is heerlijk vol, volmoutig, rozijn, lichte chocolade, gist, banaan.
smaken zijn alcoholisch, rozijn, aardse mouttonen, banaan, glad maar ook romig, iets aan de dunne kant, matig zoet, zwak bitter, mooie zachte bock met goede smaken.

slowrunner77 (5985) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
it does, however, produce a great head and a big bodied beer, but the flavor and overall impression were were pretty good, but not quite what i was hoping for based on previous ratings. 8/09-one of the few i’ve had to re-visit. Had with Schneider Weiss & Hopfenweiss...more balanced than i remember, and quite tasty. Worthy of a 4+ rating. Maybe i had one past it’s prime?"

Drank with Kaspar @ Cafe Jos 16-10-2014. Interesting beer this one. Weizen hints are still present, but it also tastes like a bok. Good combination. Also hints of fruits and sugar, the beer is moderate sweet. This moderate sweetness is however a bit too dominant, the taste could have been deeper, more compelling. Still nice beer.
