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 (6042) - 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.

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 (1259) - 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 (1465) - 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.

steview (1016) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 26, 2008
500ml Schneider bottle: I picked this up at the Pizza Port shop, the guy working says it would be a wheat, but fit my taste for an IPA--interesting... it really is not a strong, dark wheat beer, but rather, a strong, medium wheat beer... creamy, no alcohol, banana bread, some spice, perfume; good.

CelticBrew (750) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - JUL 25, 2008
Pours from bottle a very hazy yellow, forming a nice white foamy head. Aroma of clean bready yeast, spices, perhaps corriander. Flavour was full bodied, crisp clean wheats, malts and spices. The smoothness tended to balance the beer out leaving me wanting more. Very excellent beer.

Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2008
Bottle thanks to dkachur! Hazy golden yellow color with a strong banana aroma. Flavor is that of banana bread with tangy citrus as well. Hoppy as well, more so than expected.

nice amount of cediment in this one, hazy pour, yellowish color, lots and i mean lots of perfect foam ( looked so pretty) nose has some nice hops and that german wheat beer smell. flavor is intresting hops move more to the background, fruity, definate wheat. good finish, could drink a few more of these.
