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 (2286) - 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 (61) - 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 (3076) - 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.

Re-rate 5/18/09: Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Shachar! Cloudy honey-orange color with a white head. Aroma of wheat, some tropical fruits, banana notes and some floral-herbal hops.

(6/29/08) Bottle sample at RBESG08 grand tasting in Plzen. Very muddy light-brown with a quite big white head. Aroma of wheat, fruits, some malt, spices, caramel and some hops. Sweet flavor with wheat, some fruits, a bit of yeast, some spiciness and a rather bitter finish with some hops. Medium-bodied. A bit strange. I’m quite disappointed by this one. 6/3/7/3/13=3.2

Beer5000 (5951) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2008
500 ml bottle. Happy to find this rare beer (from an European view) at my local supermarket in New York, then realizing I got my hands on the more common German version. Cloudy orange body with a big off-white head. Strong weissbier and hops in aroma. Flavor is quite sweet, strong weissbier flavor and quite hoppy. In my opinion, not a very successfully combination. A bit to much of everything for my likings, but interesting.

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.

500ml bottle. A wonderful mix of wheat, spice from both the yeast and hops, pleasant bitterness, and fruitiness. Very drinkable.
