this beer is DRAFT ONLY. only 39 ratings? wow. my first BOTTLE we drank way too drunk because cmubeerman wanted to. the second one shattered in a calamitous refrigerator accident (half msonnnenberg’s fault). finally i’m having it properly (if the hops are a few weeks faded oh well). deep brown orange hefe appearance with generous head. holy shit the dregs were thick. now my beer looksl ike mud. smells like candy. then you get closer and the hops show as well. i was thinking this smells a lot like bubble gum, then i saw the bubblelicious sitting less than a foot from the glass. nevertheless, great aroma. honeyed tripel on top of a hop background. the hops remind me of lagunitas farmhouse hop stoopid. first sip is a little bland and overcarbonated. as i continue to drink this i find myself not impressed with robust flavor but rather enjoying the mild balance. i think the hops have faded.

Bottle bought at THE KEG LIQUORS in Clarksville IN. Pours a hazy golden with a huge pillowy white head. Great looking pour. The first thing I noticed in the aroma was a fair amount of hops. Then came the spices, mild clove, bananna, grains and citrus. All of which were fantastic. THe flavor has a nice tart zest to it. There are piney hops, spices, lemon and when it warms a little more hops seem to come out. Pretty awesome overall. Thanks for recommending this one to me Todd.

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2007
Bottle bought at Schneider bräuhaus in Munich. A hazy golden beer with a big white head. The aroma is of bananas, spices, lemon and hops. The taste is light banana, spicy and hoppy. Medium to full body with a light bitter dry finish, quit good!

Indra (2593) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 16, 2007
500ml bottle. Nicely spicy, fruity aroma, lightly sweet and estery with notes of lemon, banana, fresh, leafy hops, faint clove and doughy yeast, along with some lightly honeyed apple in the background. Cloudy dark golden color with a lasting, foamy head. Flavor profile is a nice combination of malty sweetness, grainy wheat, citrus, peppery spice, and substantial hop bitterness, with some faint alcohol towards the finish, which is long, gently acidic and warming. Lingering clove, leafy hop flavor and phenols. Fluffy, dry, well-carbonated palate with a medium-full body. Possesses some mild complexity and a good depth of flavor. Recommended.

My brother and I enjoyed this in the bierhaus in Munich. The color out of the bottle was a nice golden color until the sediment became involved. Then, it was a gloriously murky mess of brownish gold, with a white head which dissipated to nice thickness and just stayed. The aroma was all citrus, bitterness, and earth. The flavor was earthy to te point of nearly seeming dirty. The citrusy hops cut through everything, complimenting the yeast and lemony wheat. The piney undertone was almost forgotten with the powerful citrus and even more powerful bitterness taking full control. This was a standout beer in my beer pilgrimmage to Germany and Brussels, not because it was the best, but because it was unique to the trip. This one will not be easily forgotten. Might have to get my bro to send me some more if he can find it.

Deep, hazy gold. Sticky, off-white head settles pretty quickly to a solid half inch, and stays through the pint, leaving nice lacing. Banana ester is quite strong in this bottle, with a hearty kick of clove. It does not make a pleasant combination with the abundant, somewhat aggressive hops. Sweet malt enters the mix, and does not help the situation. On the thin side of medium in the mouth. The hops and spicy wheat are in control here, though the clove makes itself known in the long finish. Good slightly sweet malt in there as well. A bit hot to boot. Definitely tastes better than it smells. Carbonation is appropriate for a weizen, with the abundant bubbles doing a fine palate-scrubbing job here. Full points for originality here, but I just don’t like this. It’s virtually undrinkable for me.

500ml bottle-pours a big off white head and cloudy deep orange color. Aroma is creamy banana, apricot citrus-grapefruit and lemon zest-(cascade/Amarillo also?) hops, wheat. Taste is alcohol, fruit, musty and clove. Taste not up to the aroma, but nicer and does follow. Some hops. Dry finish. Good effervescence.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Bottle. Pours cloudy gold with stupendous ivory head, great lacing, and lots of bubbles. The aroma is very refreshing with lots of hops, fresh flowers, a little zest, and some yeasty spice. The flavor is floral hops right off, then some honey and spicy wheat tones. There is some yeastiness, but it is overshadowed by the crispness of the hops. The finish is slightly malty, but in a dry way. The aftertaste is slightly spicy alcohol and a lingering slight dryness. This is very tasty, indeed.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2007
(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of MoritzF. Pours a very hazy golden with a handsome, dense, off-white head leving a pretty lacework. Fresh - somewhat herbal - hoppy nose. The usual banana flavours are very downplayed - almost non-existing. Medium body, dry malt accents and again these herbal and citrusy accents with a distinct and atypical bitterness. Very interesting. 041007
