rallison (116) - USA - AUG 8, 2008
Every so often you run across that beer that just blows you away. This is one of those beers for me. Cloudy golden body with a respectable, creamy white head. Ridiculously good aroma - tons of fruity yeast - banana, tropical fruits, bubblegum, etc - with a delicate hop character. Honestly, I could smell this beer for hours. The taste is just as good. An extremely well integrated mix of soft wheat malt, fruity yeast notes, forward yet delicate hops, fruits and a light, perfectly done lingering bitterness. Just about heaven. Light on the tongue, full of flavor, begging for a warm summer day. This thing is 8.2%? Nicely hidden. I see this rates fairly well..glad to see...for me, this is honestly one of the best beers I have ever had. It brings together so many good characteristics - you’ve got a complex hefeweizen background - the beautiful soft, wheat malt character and the incredibly complex, fruity yeast notes - all tied together with a perfect hop accompaniment. Highly recommended.

Vas19 (313) - Maryland, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Pours murky yellow orange with a creamy white head. Aroma of oranges, hops, yeast, wheat, and spice. Flavor pretty much matches the aroma. Nice mouthfeel, a good beer.

DocHop (278) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Pours a very hazy, cloudy golden yellow with a massive white head. Very sweet tart citrus, Belgian yeast aroma. Wow, surprisingly smooth. Very bready flavor with a little tartness that is almost leveled out by a few hops. A little peppery and spicy too. The lingering flavor is yeasty and a little dry.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - AUG 5, 2008
500ml bottle. A wonderful mix of wheat, spice from both the yeast and hops, pleasant bitterness, and fruitiness. Very drinkable.

sstackho (249) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2008
500mL bottle purchased for $5 from Bauer Wines in Boston. Pours a cloudy, somewhat neon yellow with decent head. Great, unique aroma that is, not surprisingly, a mix of wheat beer smells and hoppy hops. The flavour starts off strong and wheaty, like a weizenbock, with a strong hoppy finish and aftertaste. Very enjoyable stuff. More please!

JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Bottle into Hefe glass. Pours a murky pale orange-gold, big white head. Nose is banana and clove, some spicy hops coming out; candy-sweet wheat as well. Taste is sweet up front, hint of the crisp wheat underneath the sweetness, banana and spicy yeast, floral hops coming through on the spicy, yeasty finish. Mouthfeel is a bit syrupy, full bodied, with a carbonation that’s a bit more subdued than expected. Hops are a bit less pronounced than in the Brooklyner version, but then, the bottle I had isn’t quite as fresh either. Overall, still a great beer.

HogTownHarry (6302) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2008
Bottle (500ml). In my Erdinger Weizen glass - looks amazing, incredibly bubbly and lively, huge lasting foamy beige head, immensely cloudy. Sweet biscuity malt and waves of yeast and banana/apple, lightly spiced and gently floral - a little dry from the alcohol presence. The taste is bigger, pretty strong alcohol and bitter floral hopping pushes the fruit and sweet malt to the background - still very pleasant, but more demanding than I was expecting. Very lively body, dryly spicy and I’m left with more alcohol/dry yeast linger than fruity malt - very, very nice though. I totally see hapjydeuce’s plantain comment - the aftertaste is vaguely like dried plantain chips. *** note - when you pour the last 25ml into the glass, be prepared for a huge infusion of floaties and protein.

hapjydeuce (979) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUL 31, 2008
Bottle from the Pizza Port Bottle Shop. Sean recommended this one. I don’t drink many weizen beers anymore, but this was pretty good. Golden color with a slight haze. Bubbly head that settles quickly. Phenolic aroma of slightly soapy pear and apricot creme. Well-balanced flavor of lemon potpourri, sage and ginger spice with some plantain. Prominent wheat note on the back end. Very drinkable considering the firm alcohol content. Nice.

haukur (1438) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUL 29, 2008
bottle, german version, bought at whole foods union square. Cloudy orange, big head. Extreme aroma, full of bananas, clove, yeast. Taste is a weisen on steroids, very full of flavour, spices, orange, citrus, surprisingly well masked. Good

fluffy (1957) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2008
i got this thinking more hefeweizen. boy, this was big time different than that. it pours more cloudy than anything else ive ever tried. brown w/bottle sediment, like dirty river water. taste is sharp with a strong alcohol burn. like a dark hoppy wheat beer. some spice, fruity and bready. not what i was expecting. not bad either, but probably wont be a repeat.
