3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Une bière avec du corps, une texture un peu huileuse, des goûts de banane, de céréales, voire de pain...
Assez forte et goûtue pour une allemande, mais le goût de l’alcool reste relativement léger.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours in hazy light orange body with huge head. Aroma has wheat, citrus and light caramel notes, yeasty. Flavour is sweet with long lasting light bitterness. Not well balanced. Body is medium with high carbonation. Did not impress me much, probably need to re-try this.

From tap at Weißes Brauhaus München. Beer is served in an Avintinus glass. Looks like a normal Weißbier. Aroma is very fruity, lots of exotic fruits which definitely makes it so much different. Taste is medium sweet, low bitterness, floral hops, exotic fruits. Tap 5 is very easy drinkable for a Weizenbock and has a very different flavour due to the extensive hops used. Very good beer. IMHO bottle is much sweeter.

500ml bottle. Lots of hops for a German beer, but it was more herbal and spicy than just bitter. Alcohol masked very well, went down very easy. Tasty German style malts.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
0.5l bottle from Csakajósör. Starts wih a nice huge head having aromas of banana, mandarin and honey. Hints of other fruits, mostly citrus. Foam has charming bittersweet taste, with banana and honey dominating. Colour is hazy dark orange. Taste is dominated by banana, honey. Yet, rather complex. Alcohol is also clearly there. Hoppiness is kind of mild, stays in the background, a bit more detectale in the aftertaste. Carbonation seems to be a bit strong for me in the beginning, but then becomes milder. A very good Bavarian weissbeer that gets only a bit of hoppiness to make it more exciting and exotic, but does not destroy the usual banana-honey dominated harmony.

Bought a bottle at Bert’s Bierhuis. The beer has a deep golden color and a nice white head, CO2 level is excellent. In the aroma strong tones of flowers, hops and fruits. The taste is silky and very hoppy, with tones of bananas, cloves, hops and orange peels. The finish is a light sweet with a medium bitter and gives a warm mouth feeling. Conclusion: it’s just a brilliant beer. One of the beers I regulary buy when I’m at a beer store.

50cl bottle. Hazy orange with medium, white head.
NOSE : surprisingly the hop character reminds a lot of US hops : strong citrus, zest and pine. Yeast has it’s characteristic banana aroma and grains are more like dough.
SIP : Creamy with good carbonation. Full body. It’s sweet and creamy with lactic and yeast notes in the background. Hop fruity and herbal notes are striking right after and it’s quite intense. Finishing with bitter aromas of zest and pine. Still yeasty and banana/bubblegum like feeling in the background.
OVERALL : very surprising beer. I didn’t know that German beers are brewed with US hops. It’s a great marriage if you ask me. Yeasty and hoppy. The alcohol is well hidden.
