Bottle at the RBESG08 Grand tasting. Alround rating: Very eastery, bitter and dry, banana and grassy hop clash. Far to carbonated.

Tejas (910) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Really don’t know what to say about this one. Tasted like nothing I’ve had before. Good but different. Just like it’s suppose to be > a hoppy hefe. Way to much yeast/sediment for me though. Hops seemed to overpower the wheat flavors.

omhper (20758) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2008 Bottled at RBESG. Cloudy deep golden, rich head. Orangey banana aroma. Medium-full bodied. Fruity and yeasty, juicy and aromatic. Feels lighter than it’s size. By weizenbock-standards unusual amounts of hop bitterness finishes it off.

ekstedt (5846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2009 Sampled at RBESG08 grand tasting. Weird murky beige appearance, probably the ugliest beer I’ve ever had. Very yeasty and fruity aroma with pineapple and citrus. Medium bodied and smooth. Good balance with a dry and bitter finish. Quite good but I had expected something much better.

Bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget. Very different this time. Hazy orange golden, medium whitre head. Fruity and spicy aroma, with peaches, apricot, and some rubber notes. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Well balanced, moderate to firm bitterness.

Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Cloudy amber pour with a huge head and very effervescent. Floral aroma and less sweet then I expected. More of a blend from hops and citrus. The somewhat high ABV is hidden well, making this dangerously easy to drink. One of the best beers I’ve had yet.

patrick767 (3724) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2008
500ml bottle - Pours hazy gold with an ample white head. It smells of yeast, citrus hops, and a little spice. The flavor nicely combines the sweet, yeasty malt of the weiss with generous hops accented by good citrus notes. It’s lively on the palate and leaves a crisp, bitter finish. Tasty.

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Bottle into an Aventinus glass. Pours a hazy golden with a big white head. Leaves a nice lacing. Aromas are bready, yeasty, a bit of cloves, noble hops, a touch of spiciness, a little fruity. Flavor is slightly sweet, malty, a touch of alcohol, spicy, cloves. Mmm, very good. Medium mouthfeel. I prefer the Brooklyn version (amarillo hops!), but costwise, this is a bargain for a wheatbock.

This is an incredible beer. It is the best of both worlds. The Wheat meets the Hops. This is a beer that would satisfy the hophead and the wheat fanatic.I had this beer in America and at the Schneider brewery In Kelheim, Germany. If you can get this, don’t pass it up!!
