Draught, in Düsseldorf at Zum Uerige, on March 13, 2010
Cloudy dark yellow color, fluffy off-white head. Acidic, semi-sweet, a bit fruity taste. Some wet green apples aftertaste. Sweet fruity scent. Not really the characteristic banana esters I was expecting from the style. Medium to moussy mouthfeel, low bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Uerige brauerei in Dusseldorf. After several alts we switched over to the Weizen. I forgot to ask if they had the Dopplebach, which means I’ve got the best reason in the world to go back! After a 2 euro deposit for the glass, I was handed another really good beer. Hazy gold color with a decent white head. Nose was clove, banana, bread, nutmeg, some citric notes and peace. Taste was vanilla, banana, clove, honey, a fair amount of yeast with sweet peaches and apples faintly making a cameo. Palate had less of a bite and more of a strong roundness too it. Fairly chewy at points and extremely easy to drink. Very refreshing. Not a big Weizen fan but I really liked this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Maxs German Fest 09. Pours a hazy yet somehow dull- brownish golden with a fizzy cola-like carbonation- fading head. Aroma is very ale-like extremely low on the esters- hardly any hefe notes at all- some off cold fermented phenolics though with lots of toasted wheat doughy malts- some earth as well. Flavor is wheaty light grassy hops, dull ester and phenolic profile from the usual cleanish yeast, doughy, light toasted malts, more biscuit and wheat- some dirty yeast as well. Somewhat easy to drink. Ok.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled (thanks Bov!). Hazy yellow colour, huge white fluffy head. Aroma is wheat, some a bit lagery "malty and hoppy figures" along with some herbs and citrusfruits. Flavour is wheat, yeast, some slight lagery notes as well as some earthyness. Almost wheat meeting Kölsch or something like that. Yet very nice and drinkable.
