Wheat is growing in Düsseldorf: At Uerige a group of confessional wheat beer lovers sprung to life spontaneously when the new, light-colored beer was served for the first time. And the taste does them justice.

Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 15, 2009
draught at the brewery - hazy blond colour with a persistent white foam; quite discrete nose with a touch of grapefruit; clean palate with some sweetness; some bitterness and a medium malt body; quite smooth finish with a weird earthy touch - an unconventional weizen; a wonder it still exists considering the reluctance of the waiters to serve it

Bottle@Home. Lemon aroma with hints of veggies. Cloudy, pale yellow, white head, fair lace. Light sweet, bitter, lemon, quite neutral overall and thinnish. Uninteresting Weizen.

A little better, but quite incipit. Very cloudy which I like. I wish my german was better so I could aks for the rest of the beers.

I love Uerige’s Altbier, so this was a severe disappointment. Lesson learned: Never order a Weizen in an Altbier pub. Beer was a slightly hazy and sickly pale yellow with thin, white head. Faint, lemony and grainy nose. Not much flavor, a low citric tartness and faint bitterness but otherwise pretty bland. Watery. Sorry, but its alleged Altbier leanings do not save it from being a shabby wheat beer. Hate to give an Uerige beer such a low score, but this is an honest rating.

Rastacouere (6128) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2007
Classic cloudy golden pour topped by a fading, fizzy white head. Rather straightforward wheat nose without much backup. A certain banana tartness develops with crème fraîche and baking powder undertones, but the ensemble is not that pleasant as it greatly lacks crispness. Little phenols nor yeast character. Creamy palate as the foaminess dies off, rather dry, akin to banana chips. Quite simple weizen.

Bottle. Hazy yellow coloured with a white head. Aroma of fruits and wheat. Fruity flavour of wheat and spices with notes of bananas and hops.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - JUL 15, 2007
From tap at Uerige. I couldn’t really get a good hang of this, tasted a bit raw with quite little weizenlike qualities. A bit yeasty, soury and some hoppiness.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2007
Hazy golden coloured brew. Sweet and floral aroma. Malty flavor, sweetness and wheaty. A bit alt-like. Nice.

henrikb (1258) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 24, 2007
Golden body with a small white big bubbled head; Very Alt like nose, with the weizen notes making it unclear; Medium sized soft carbonation on very innocent (boring) body thin and slightly bitter; Medium long thin finish with malty bitterness and malty nutty aromas. Very strange beer.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2007
(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of MoritzF. Slightly hazy golden with a white head. Acidic, floral aroma. Medium body, sweetish malty with an amazing arsenal of fruit notes - tropical ones in particular. No yeastiness, no bitterness but quite interesting and very untraditional for Germany. 090407
