Aw, do I miss this beer. It was the perfect summer brew, cloudy, hints of fruit without being overpowering, hints of spice, sweet tasting but definitely still a beer flavor overall. The SchWheat doesn’t come close to replacing the Hummer.

Hilarious to find this in the back of my fridge. I wonder how long its been there! pours a cloudy yellowish color. Aroma is spice, yeast, banana, clove. Flavor is yeasty, bready, some spice. Hummer. LOL.

Westmeister (1806) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 27, 2012
Bottle. Had this a least 25 times back in tha day, so this is purely an attempt to tick another Sweetwater brew. And certainly can remember it pretty well. Poured a hazy orange/gold color with a smaller white head. Some orange rind and a tad bit of banana in the taste. Definitely a banana note in the flavor with a bit of clove. Great hot day brew and pretty sad this one went away from the local market.

For the brew guy. Good wheat flavor with some summer spice. Take it fishing. You won’t regret it.

It’s been awhile since I had one of these but I am quite certain I can remember it well. Poured a cloudy orange color with white head. Aroma was of various spices, orange and earthy malts. It was medium bodied, little to no bitterness. Finished dry and crisp. A good lawn mower esque brew from Sweetwater.

Panzuriel (1349) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Beer Pours a light golden with a faint haze. Head is thin white bubbles rapidly disappearing. Nose is hoppy clean, citrus happy. Light and fresh. Taste is rather hoppy cidery and dry. Body is rather thin. finish is clean with a small hint of an aftertaste. Getting a bit of a sour thing going on. kinda ruins the finish.

Hazy yellow with a medium white head. Sweet yeasty aroma with lemons and coriander. Flavour was somewhat sourish with wheat and lemons. Sourish dry finish.

Ungstrup (29699) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2009
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a lazing off-whiote head. The aroma has notes of malt and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, malt, and citrus, leading to a dry cardboard finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of brentfeesh. Pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Perfumy coriander nose. Light body, very tart citrus bordering sour. Dry, citrusy finish. Lingering infection I reckon. 111009
