4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.40):
Strong banana & spice with faint alcohol. Background citrus & mango, orange & light hops too.. Fruity & fresh with good balance, some yeast & cloves. Nice stuff.
Cloudy orange to amber with foamy, 3cm white head that held steady until I took a sip.
Banana & cloves to start with faint alcohol. Citrus, mango & pineapple with background hops & grassy flavours feature, as does some bubblegum.
Creamy with a smooth feel & medium body helped down with moderate carbonation. The beers alcohol content was noticeable but the fruits in the taste helped mask at least some of it.
A good beer and one that benefited from the extra hops in both the taste and smell. Whilst it was a pleasant beer I think I’d be put off buying it all that often based on the fact that it is a lot stronger and harder to get a hold of that several other German wheat beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at G2B (Durham). Pours clear/slight hazy gold with towering white creamy head. Aroma is distinctly wheaty - some earthiness here too. Lots of grassy notes. Fresh hop notes in the taste - not specifically fir/spruce, but slightly resinous and sweet/bitter interplay. Complex and solid. Bready/malt characteristics throughout. Higher ABV than expected, and one was enough. Loved it.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It has a thick cloudy, yeasty looking body with a tan/orange color and a tall white head. The head fades fairly fast and leaves just a small ring of foam on top. Lacing is minimal and spotty and slick. The aroma has a good wheat bready and yeasty character with hints of ripe banana and citrusy herbal hops. There is a good bit of bready/yeasty character and flavor. I get mild notes of banana, pineapple, clove and hints of orange. The hop profile is more noticeable than most Weizenbocks and adds a good balance of spicy, herbal, (almost minty) and citrus bitterness. The palate has a smooth and silky, almost oily texture with mellow carbonation.

Pint bottle from Wine Source. Pours hazy honey colored, medium white head, lacing doesn’t last. Aroma is fruity: peach, banana, with a small hops presence. Beer is moderately carbonated, velvety mouthfeel. Flavor is quite sweet. The fruit kicks in, then there’s the hops at the end. A really good beer, a beautiful blending of two styles, but just a tad sweet for my liking. This could be, however, because I’ve cut most sugar our of my diet lately. A damn fine beer, anyway.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Vergeet je stevige maaltijd, neem een Scheider Weisse, zo dit is een stevige volle en cremige jongen. oogt vrij donker gouden, ietwat wazig met schuimige donker witte kraag. aroma van citrus, tarwe en hop.
smaken zijn redelijk zoet, licht bittertje, redelijk moutig, gras, citrus, sinaasappel, floraal, overrijpe bananen, abrikoos.
zoals al vermeld, behoorlijk romig en dik van textuur, de hoppigheid in de achtergrond komt daar wel lekker als contrast uit.
ondanks de stevigheid best te drinken.
