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.

Poured into a Guinness tulip as that’s the closest JDW has to a Weizen glass. (Is this the most expensive beer at JDW, by the way?) Big lasting foam, cloudy gold, lemon, spice, banana and yeasty nose, dry-sweet and lightly bitter on the palate, chewy and lightly banana-spicy, earthy bitterness in the finish. Nice example of the style, and a great Brotzeit (breakfast) beer!

1/29/16 Chicago (1 pint, 0.9 fl oz bottle poured into thin Hefe glass). Clear, pale yellow pour, solid white head. Minimal aroma, sweet but somewhat bland apple taste. Thin texture, minimal carbonation or texture. Disappointing Hefewezien for me.

Rated from old notes. Pours yellow, slightly cloudy, with a foamy head.Pleasant wheat flavor, slightly sweet, and almost aggressively dry. Mellows as you progress. Nothing special.

Lahký letný weizen s plnou chuťou kvasníc, skôr ovocný doraz, výrobca dával dôraz na krásnu farbu

Hazy yellow-orange with thin head. Nose is malts and yeasts in proper Bavarian style, with citrus and banana. Taste goes mostly on the banana’s side, fresh and smooth. Typical Hefeweizen, quite tasty.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford. Pours lighter - and clearer - than your average hefeweizen. Sweet banana and biscuit aroma really draws you in. The taste us sweet, almost too much so, with only the slightest bitter backbone. Vanilla wafer and gentle citrus in the aftertaste. Pretty tasty, not the best I’ve had and not the worst.

Fad i Nürnberg. Ufiltreret gullig orange med fin hvid skumkrone. Aromaen er som smagen: banan, lemon, gær og hvede. En ganske fin hvedeøl.

Pours hazy golden with a white, frothy head. It has the aroma of citrus, banana and wheats. It tastes light sweet. The carbonations is pleasantly soft, though the body is full. A decent Weizen and typically refreshing.
