I am not a hophead by any stretch of the imagination. But I am an American. And as an American who loves well-made Belgian and German beers, I have to say that more European beers could do some mighty things with a reasonably hoppy kick in the ass. Here I’m thinking about the Chouffe Houblon. And of course I’m thinking about this beer. Predictably, I loved it.

My brother and I drank ours at the bierhaus in Munich. It poured a thick, muddy, grayish-brown, with massive amounts of yeast swirling around like smoke. Smells like hops, evergreen, and lemon zest. Covering the booze is no problem with those tangy yet grassy hops. The bitterness is in the driver’s seat, and you’re in the back with the lemon and pine. The citrus stands out to me, because I think there’s a marriage of the citrus in the hops and the citrus in the weisse yeast. This beer floored me on the first go-round, and I’m glad they let me buy a few to go.

Friggin’ awesome beer. Bottles, at Circa, 9/28/07. Like a big, meaty, chewy weiss with no noticeable sourness and pleasant hopping that doesn’t overpower. So awesome.

Bottle. Very interesting beer. Pours a hazy amber. Nose of bananas and pine. The wheat and hops both come through strong in the flavor. Really good. Very enjoyable.

Hmmm... this beer was definitely interesting. Just the uniqueness alone made it worthwhile. But then you had the awesome wiessebier aromas with bananas and bubblegum and a whole load of stickly sweet hops on top of that. The taste was remniscent of Aventinus, but with a dimension of it’s own. There were too many spices and complexities to even point out. But on top of all of that it was so easily drinkable, so very refreshing, that I just wanted another...

(bottle) Cloudy, murky amber colour with a huge light-beige foamy head. Sweet, light wheat-malty, fruit-accented lemon aroma with very aromatic piney hops and phenolic spice. Moderately wheaty, lemony fruity taste with a piney hops character from the beginning and present phenolic spices; dry, almost astringent bitter finish with a very pleasant piney hops character and a lemon-fruity, hoppy aftertaste with balanced spicy, slightly clovy phenols Extraordinary and unusual Weizenbock with a distinctive hop bite. I really hope there is more to come from the Saphir hops..

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2009 Bottle (thanks to joss and the Schneider brewery!) Golden, cloudy, big very persistent fluffy white head; very strong piney-hoppy nose with a spicy phenolic touch; full sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied; long lasting fruitiness in the full piney-aromatic bitter-sweet finish. Wow ! The best of all beers of the Weizen-family.........

Murky, deep amber appearance with a large, off white head, spotty lacing and a good deal of sediment. Crisp fruit aroma, spicy, with an herbal edge. Esters play a suporting, rather than dominating, role typical for this style. Taste is earthy, slightly tart, bitter, with plenty of spicy hops playing off the absorbant wheat flavors. Full-to-medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel leading to a long lasting finish.

50 cl bottle via trade with jasonmech77 - Pours a hazy amber color with a large white head. Light lacing. Has a spicey ester (apple & banana) aroma. Flavor is also fruity with just a touch of malt. Medium body. Fairly smooth palate. A nice, easy drinking beer. Thanks Jason.

Bottle Pours a hazy orange with a thick white head. Aromas of clove and slight banana. I had hoped for more hops. Flavor is unique starts off like a typical weizen and then there is a slight kick of hoppiness at the finish. It wasn’t what I was hoping for, but certainly not bad.
