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.

Moravius (1131) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle, bought online from www.biershop-braugasthoefe.de. - Hazy yellow. Fruity nose (citrus, no banana). - Dry, with pleasant light citrus notes (’perfumed’), lightly sweetish, a bit tart, very refreshing. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and fruity. - This is a most unusual beer–fans of the sickly sweet Bavarian wheat beers with their banana flavours may not find it to their liking. But it’s a great beer. Unusual but delicious. Just don’t approach it with the idea this is a Bavarian Hefeweizen.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2007
UPDATED: APR 21, 2009 Fliptop from the flughafen. A beautifully rounded specimen. Sourish, slightly rubbery nose. A touch of characteristic alty clementine fruit, developing into almost lambic sourness. Tart but appetisingly cereally with fresh wheat after the swallow. A tragedy I only brought one 330cl bottle home and,worse, had to share it.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2007 A hefe with alt qualities and in a way I am reminded of the Sunner Hefe which has klosh like qualities. I liked a hefe with notes of pepper. Page 467 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 230 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

jfb (5567) - 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!

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2013
Hellgelbes Weizen mit leicht bräunlichem Touch. Die Schaumkrone ist übersichtlich. Unglaubliche Nase nach leckerem Uerige-Alt (!) mit weiziger Hefenote und etwas Limette. Im Geschmack kommt sofort die Altbiernote nach getreidigem Malz, allerdings hefig unterlegt, dann übernimmt der gewohnt kräftige Doldenhopfen das Kommando. Ein Weizen, das geschmacklich überhaupt nicht mit den klassischen deutschen Brüdern vergleichbar ist und doch so zu überzeugen weiß, vorausgesetzt man mag auch das Uerige-Alt! Könnte ich jeden Tag trinken. Treffer!!

Not a very weizeny weizen - it tastes like it’s made with the same yeast as the alt. eggy sulfur in the aroma gives it away. taste is meaty, round, and a bit like peach iced tea - juicy and a tad acidic. a weird one, but i liked it by the end of the glass.

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.
