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.

Fliptop bottle from the brewery. Hazy wheat beer with a nice head. Refreshing and drinkable. Grainy and malty. Enjoyable

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 (9283) - 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.

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 18, 2010
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.

inbirraveritas (1417) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 31, 2010
0.5 l fliptop bottle. Shows a hazy orange with a creamy medium head on top, carbonation’s lively. It smells yeasty, grainy and fruity, the start is moderate crisp, the taste’s sweet. The flavour is fruity (pear, citrus). Aroma of cereals, citrus hops and yeast, the finish is spicy, citric, light bitter and dry. A nice and refreshing one.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 13, 2010
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.

jfb (5036) - Freising, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2009
(bottle) pours a hazy golden colour with a creamy white head. aroma of caramel and wheat, with a light peachy fruitiness, a bit understated. flavour is much more pronounced, with lots of bubblegum, wheat, peaches, some notes of banana, lychee and fruity hop spices. medium body with smooth carbonation and a velvety finish. an excellent weizen!
