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.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - DEC 29, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy gold with a thick white head. Clean wheat aroma with some dough and grainy malt and a light hint of fruitiness. Lighter on bitterness and spicy hop flavor, with a dry, almost crackery wheat malt flavor. The body is light but rounded and has spritzy carbonation. A touch floral and fruity, but the Uerige yeast is pretty clean for a top-fermenter. A refreshing and quite drinkable beer, and a nice change from all the sweet, fruity weizens in Bavaria. The lack of esters actually makes the wheat flavor more pronounced.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2010
Draught, Zum Uerige, Dusseldorf. Cloudy yellowish gold looks with a good sized white head. Fairly muted, gently fragrant nose. Flavour revealed notes of wheat, yeast and a bit of citrus. Dries out towards the finish .Slightly different from the normal examples of the style, and all the better for it. Enjoyable stuff.

gnoff (9431) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2010
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.

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.
