I donít where it says in brewing that the addition of hops automatically makes everything better, or why you would want to take an already perfect German Hefe in Schneider Weisse and add large amount of hops. I digress, this beer has an interesting amount of fruitiness, unique flavors, almost a hint of coconut, but ripe apple skins meld nicely with the toastec cereal malt flavors and some yeasty clove, and then a mouthful of un-needed hops, that just kills the style.

500ml. Voluminous white head atop a hazy, almost murky dark golden body. Nose is fairly unique with grassiness, sweet malt, some spice and some tropical fruit. Body is great, lots of apple, pear, wheat, banana and some other tea-like qualities. Dry, hopped finish. Very tasty and quite unique.

50cl bottle from Countryside Liquors (Florida). Pours a cloudy caramel with thick fluffy head. Clearly visible chunks of yeast floating around glass. Aroma: strong citrus aroma with notes of bread, yeast and honey. Stronger notes of orange on subsequent smells. Strong citrus taste, not unlike orange juice, with a medium to full body, slightly syrupy, with notes of grapefruit, tartness and honey. Finish is quick and slightly bitter with grapefruit notes. Interesting hefeweizen unlike most others we have consumed.

[bottle] Pours a hazy gold with a large off white head. Aroma is citrusy hops with some lemon. Flavor is lemony with some pears and orange flavor. Smooth mouthfeel.

By far one of the most unique beers Iíve ever had. The mix between the bitterness of the hops and the rich maltiness typical of hefeweizens is pretty amazing. The taste is really unique and this is definitely a beer I would recommend.

KnutAlbert (6651) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 18, 2008
Bottled at the Bull and Castle, Dublin. Great fusion beer, bringing together the traditions. Banana and wheat malt, then the hops kick in to make this a multi-dimensional beer. Deceivingly easy-drinking, you donít feel much of the alcohol. Someone said pineapple smoothie, but I enjoyed this a lot. Grassy finish.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAR 24, 2008
On tap at Zenoís Pub - State College, PA. Rich, floral nose in cream of wheat and bubbly champagne esters. Pours a really murky, middle gold with bronze corners and rim of white. Flavor is intense. A really deep, rich wheat flavor, glowing with some caramels, toast and almonds. Thereís a fresh bread that moves through a portal of vegetal character. Deep, hearty and a bit meaty. Real and deep. Most interesting here in the hop flavor. Itís got a grassy, bamboo character. A very unique plant character. Not bad, but really, really fresh and vibrant. Gives stunning balance to the beer, but leaves me taken aback. A fresh, well delivered beer. Could have sat a little lighter on the palate, but itís pretty decent. Not as nice as the reverse version.

kappldav123 (5830) - GERMANY - MAR 20, 2008
Big thanks to joss for the bottle. The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass is incredible. Very turbid, aroma like a barley wine. Tastes the same - very strong, hoppy, finish very long and intense. Canít remember a beer as good as this!

hotstuff (4841) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 17, 2008
Bottle. Large fizzy off-white head that mostly diminished, spotty amounts of lacing, transparent, lively, fast rising carbonation observed, and a golden hue. Nose was hoppy, citrus, spicy, fruity, some clove, wheat, and hint of banana. Flavor is fruity, hoppy, some spiciness, and wheat. Smooth and slightly tingly mouthfeel. Medium in body. Quaffable, balanced and good for the style. Worthy of a try.
