GMCC2181 (1552) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 19, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2010 Bottle. Nice orange color, good head. Aroma is fruity, spicy and some hops maybe. Taste is spicy fruity, yeast, lemon and some bitterness in the aftertaste. Hoppy with some bananas. Dry as well. Smooth very easy to drink. Carbonation level is medium. No trace of the alcohol (8.2) what so ever. Overall a very enjoyable beer.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2008
16.9 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a large, fluffy linen white head that is fed for several minutes by lots of tiny carbonation bubbles and lasts through two-thirds of the glass. A few light-colored floaters at the bottom of the glass. Very pleasant aroma of wheat, yeast, lemon and a bit of bubblegum. The flavor is wheat, yeast, lemon and orange. Mildly bitter at the finish and slightly drier as well. This is a thoroughly enjoyable summer beer, and I will be sure to be pick up a few more bottles before the summer ends.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with medium off white head. Aroma is yeasty and somewhat hoppy and wheaty. Flavor has some alcohol, some light banana and lemon (very light) and comes to a fairly dry and lightly herbal finish. No big flavors here, except the alcohol which considering is actually strong but well hidden at the same time. Interesting and good.

Headbanger (3501) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2008
16.9 oz bottle(My bottle has different label)-Pours a murky orange with a nice tight white head. Aroma of wheat, hops, banana, and a little bit of alcohol. Taste of the same with more hops, spices, banana, and finishes with a light dryness. This medium bodied brew is very tasty and quite balanced. Can’t wait to try the Brooklyn version.

blankboy (6444) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear, then hazy, then murky yellow-gold with a large mostly-lasting fizzy/frothy off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma of banana, spices, floral hops, yeast, citrus and sweet malt -- quite nice. Flavour of yeast, floral hops and alcohol (more hops and alcohol then I expected) along with spices, light banana and citrus. A decent light bitter alcoholic finish. Quite carbonated, almost too much so. Medium bodied. Very good, and quite interesting, I’ll need to get more.

graham515 (536) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Pours hazy gold into the glass with a white head about 2 fingers thick that stays throughout. Aroma is yeasty with some nice hop spice character coming through. Flavor is powerful and yet delicate with nice wheat flavor and plenty of yeast. This beer finishes nice and dry and is remarkably quenching despite its 8.2%abv.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2008
Poured a lovely cloudy orange with a huge, lasting head. Spicy, sweet aroma. The hops are a little stronger than I would have expected - a nice surprise! Less dark malt character than the aventinus - nice and chewy and sweet, like a good barleywine except with the typical spice of a wheat beer. Good carbonation, thick body - milkshake-like! What a treat of a beer, even better than the Brooklyn-brewed sister beer. Many thanks to Ughsmash for the trade!

illidurit (2230) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Poured into a Franziskaner weizen glass. Huge off-white head froths up above the rim and leaves chunks of lacing. Tons of sediment, mostly yeast, but some chill haze too. Aroma is clove-dominated with some sweetbread malt, cinnamon, banana, and eggnog. Flavor has a nice wheat malt and banana ester basis, with all kinds of spicy accents. Obvious clove, nutmeg, and Hallertauer zestiness. Some vanilla sweetness and citrus. Tons of complexity, probably the deepest wheat beer I’ve ever had. Finish is dry with a light pithy bitterness that lingers. Very drinkable for the 8.2% abv that you couldn’t have guessed was there. Great beer.

evanrail (57) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 10, 2008
Bottle courtesy of pivnizub — many thanks. Pours a very cloudy orange with a thick, long-lasting styrofoam head. Aroma jumps out of the glass, filling the room with orange blossoms: candy-store sweetness shot through with a blast of bright mint. Below is a touch of clove and Blackjack gum. In the mouth, a chewy body, unusual for a Weisse, with virtually no alcoholic heat. (It’s really 8.2 percent?) Complex layers of flavor run from vinous depths to a slightly bitter, lemon-pith finish. Very good, very brawny, perhaps lacking in nuance at this tasting.

Marsiblursi (3045) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2008
(Bottle) Pours a muddy grayish brown colour. The aroma is floral and overripe fruity with tones of canned pineapple and some light citric tones. The flavour is sweet and light wheaty with a tropical backdrop of canned pineapple. Tiny hoppy and spicy. The mouthfeel is soft. Medium bodied.
