COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

henrikb (1257) - 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.

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.

joergen (19665) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2007
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.

Rastacouere (6107) - 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.

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.

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.

JoeinEscazú (1325) - Ozark, Missouri, USA - MAY 5, 2008
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.

Ungstrup (28458) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 10, 2007
Bottled. An unclear dark golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with fruity notes of peaches, combined with light spicy notes. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of peaches and lycee fruit. More special than good.

Fukito (723) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 31, 2007
Tap at Uerige, march 07. Clear golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is of bananas but very restrained. Tastes of cloves, some nuts and a gentle aromatic ending. Mouthfeel is medium to light, bitter spicy aftertaste. Not bad, but I will stick to the lushy alt.

Papsoe (25094) - 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
