GoufCustom (856) - HONG KONG - NOV 10, 2013


500 ml bottle bought at Great Food hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty during the store’s Oktoberfest promotion.

Cloudy, hazy dull golden yellow colour with substantial dirt-like yeast sediments; Explosive four-finger head with crumpety white foam which lasts for about 2 minutes; Small sticky lacing and fizzy carbonation; Strong and sweet aroma of banana, vanilla, malt, Champagne yeast, sugar, cloves, and spices; Slightly tart and light sweet taste of light malt, with banana, strong yeast, cloves, spices, light wet cardboard, lemon and very light grass; Mid to light body, slightly thick and quite crisp palate; Mouth feel is yeast-dominated, light malt weiss base with banana, strong cloves, some phenolic character and lemon. Body is kinda right consider the yeasty presence; Hoppiness is lemon and some herbal nose, lemony and faint herb taste, Almost no astringency, more a wheaty and slightly tart finish; Slightly dry after taste, very easy and crispy to mouth.

Comments: The gimmick here is Champagne yeast, which bring some really nice yeasty nose, yet other aroma and taste elements, like banana and cloves, are rather average. If you crave champagne yeast and taste than this is for you. Otherwise, being gimmicky is not enough to be a good weiss. Barely decent.

It’s unclear golden with a white head. The aroma has notes of sour yeast, light sewer, light fruit and what. The sweet flavor has notes of somewhat sour yeast, fruit and wheat. The finish is slightly sour and yeast. Not too fond of the sourness.

COMRADEJOSH (303) - Ft Hood, Texas, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Pours a nice cloudy orange in appearance with a large head. Aroma slightly citrus. Cloves and citrus taste a little different from your run of the mill hefe weizens.

Borresteijn (4853) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2013
50cl Bottle, 1 month past BB date, thanks bierkoning! Murky golden amber colour, white head. Aroma of butter, champagne yeast, wheat, light tart. Flavour is wheat, light tart, lemon, yeast, light bitter finish with a hint of toffee. Light-bodied. OK weizen.

Beerbarella (343) - - DEC 20, 2012
500 ml bottle. Pours stringy cloudy amber with masses floating around. It says this beer is made with ’Sekthefe’ (=sparkling wine yeast) and it really has a bit of a sparkling wine aroma, with strong notes of fruits and honey. Sweet and sour fruity honey taste with vanilla notes. Sparkly sour-sweet honey palate.

beeracoon (438) - - DEC 20, 2012
Medium white head. Very strange cloudy, misty consistence with black particles floating around. Definitely no eye-candy. Idiosyncratic yeasty champagne aroma with strong notes of vanilla. Pleasantly fruity taste and a likewise fruity palate with, again, hints of vanilla. Good one.

darkseduction (614) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle 50cl. In the nose a winey smell, mixed with typical Weizenbier aroma. Quite thin in the mouth, winey character disappears.

kevnic2008 (8333) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2012
A slight haze, light head and lacing. Nose of bright banana and a touch of nutmeg, allspice with the typical sweet wheat notes.
