3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed 2/19/13. 16.9 fl oz bottle into a weizen glass.
A: Pours a typical cloudy gold color. This doesn’t have an amazing head for the style, but it’s still a two finger white shade with decent retention and a good creaminess to it.
S: Fairly banana-heavy, with some crisp wheat and bubblegum esters. Touches of clove and coriander also come through. Aromatically, it’s well done, but not a standout in the style.
T: Pleasantly mellow banana esters start things off. The finish is mild wheat malt and the faintest ’ping’ of earthy noble hops, but perhaps my favorite feature is the note of milky cream that ties the midtaste It’s not particularly bold, inspiring, or complex, but like I said - pleasantly mellow.
M: I could use a creamier finish here - the astringency is a bit too coarse for my tastes. Having said that, this ticks many good qualities I expect from the style: nice dryness/crispness, light in its texture, high (not overbearing) carbonation, and superb drinkability.
O: Good stuff. Don’t know what else to say apart from this being a solidly good weizen.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head. Taste banana, floral, light. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl alu-can, abv 5.2, from Vinmonopolet.
Can pours a great head on the hazy golden orange body.
Scents of hay, dough, quite sweet and typical for wheat beer.
Tastes great, wheat grains, mild hops, citrus, bananas.
Mouthfeel gentle, easy drinkable, low bitterness.
Nice final with more of the wheat malts, white bread, and a faint hint of shoe polish fume. Overall a great wheat beer, and should go well after dinner, or between dinner and desert.

Serving: Bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a pale gold with a lasting head of tight, white bubbles. The nose has light banana notes. Crisp and clean on the palate with a little banana, slight wheat, little grainy sweetness, and a crisp, noble hop finish. Pretty solid.

Can bought at Tesco. A little history about this beer in Slovakia. The first time I found this beer was in the late 1990’s in the BILLA grocery store. At that time it was pretty expensive - 40 Slovak crowns (now approx 1.33€, but a normal lager beer was approx. 15-20 crowns, approx 50-66 Euro cents). And it was the only hefe Weißbier available in a store. I have not drunk this beer for maybe 10 years until now. Overall this a very tasty hefe Weißbier in a can. Anytime again
