caesar (6642) - Bunnik/Utrecht, - JUN 28, 2012
Bottled @ home. Cloudy golden color, huge rocky head, like a weizen is supposed to be. Quite spicy aroma, more clove than banana, bit grainy. Taste is medium sweet and slightly bitter. Bit dryish finish. Ok weizen.

Bierdimpfe (327) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2016
Cloudy golden color with creamy 2 finger head, that last around 5-10 minutes, with moderate lacing. Flavors of lemony citrus, wheat, apples, caramel, clove, coriander, floral and herbal spices. Pleasant sugary bready feel with a sharp low bitterness feel. Slick medium body with zesty carbonation. Light finish that lingers with roasted caramel and fresh lemon. Overall good quality craft. Tasty flavors with decent balance. Refreshing feel but the body is a little oily flat. Slightly faint flavors while not overly spicy.

Bière orangée tirant un peu vers le jaune, parfaitement voilée, bonne effervescence, et surmontée d’un large col blanc cassé, très dense, très mousseux, cotonneux même, et qui semble éternel. Arômes de pain frais, blé et sucre brut avec beaucoup de levure à weizen, principalement des phénols de fermentation (clou de girofle, poivre, vanille… caoutchouc…). On note également quelques esters (banane surtout, un peu poire…), et, par moment, les effluves semblent davantage «pâteux», pâte à pain, pain aux bananes… Odeurs un peu herbacé et aromatique davantage en trame de fond, gazon, coriandre, camomille… peut-être un apport du houblon, ou encore des phénols. Nez correctement agréable, bonne intensité, complexité assez élevée. En bouche, pétillement plutôt faible sur la langue, mais onctuosité fort intéressante au palais, le breuvage est rond et moelleux, et on retrouve bien le velouté typique des bières de blé. Au goût, pain frais, blé et sucre brut, petite tendance pâteuse, pâte à pain, pâtisserie… Saveur plus fruitée (et moins de phénols!) qu’au nez, banane, mangue, poire, pêche et même agrumes (citron et orange). On note quelques phénols bien doux en bouche (c’est très vanille!) et la bière a un petit côté résolument herbacé et aromatique (coriandre, camomille…). Difficile cependant de bien cerner l’apport du houblon, et l’amertume est minimale. Très bonne intégration des différentes saveurs entre elles, belle complexité en bouche, mais l’intensité y est plutôt moyenne, impression aqueuse en bouche par moment. Il s’agit néanmoins d’une très bonne bière!

boloney (42) - Srem, POLAND - AUG 27, 2016
Banany, goździki i trochę gumy balonowej w aromacie. Smak banów, dość przyjemny - piwo solidnie nasycone i przy tym dość miękkie. Jak na koncerniaka - poprawne

puboflyons (3097) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 24, 2016
From the crowler, which was on sale for $2.99. BB: 20 July 2017. Slightly cloudy pale yellow light amber pour. Big foamy white head. The aroma brings out a little wheat, toasted bread, but also a sort of soapy quality. Low hop profile of grass or hay mainly. Light to medium body. The soapiness I mentioned seems more noticeable in the flavor although I do get a wheat and bread sensation. An almost fruity finish and semi-dry. Nothing extraordinary.

nephirem (242) - CROATIA - AUG 14, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2016 Can, 0.5. Pours hazy orange body with medium sized, frothy white head. Very pleasant smell, nice and fruity. Medium body, softly carbonated. Very nice texture, thick, smooth and oily. Very sweet tasting, usual sour notes are a bit subdued. Aroma of wheat, malts, yeast, banana, cloves, spices and herbs. Lovely balanced hefe. Overall, surprisingly good hefe for very low price. Tasty.

Taboada (920) - Compostela (Galiza), - AUG 9, 2016
500 mml can tasted on the 07/08/2016. Cloudy light golden colour with a persistent white head. Aroma of malts and yeast. Minimal fruity (banana) on the background. Taste is some banana peal, yeasty and wheat. Aftertaste has some bitterness but not so intense...Next one please!

Skarecrow (221) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 30, 2016
500ml can BB 29/12/16 Aroma is typical wheat beer - fruity, phenolic, cereal. Poured cloudy light orange with decent head and residual lacing. No bitterness to speak of - a thin phenolic taste/finish. I’m not really a wheat beer fan but saw this in the supermarket and thought I’d try it. I’m sure it would be thirst quenching on a hot summer day.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2016
(Canned 5.5.2016, BBE 5.8.2017) Very hazy golden with a good, firm head. Slightly corny, wheaty-malty nose with some stuffy plastic feel. Flavor is smooth-wheaty with lots of banana esters and some sweetness. Medium to full body, yet refreshing palate. Didn’t find this industrial at all, despite the slight stuffiness in the aroma. Quite refreshing, and definitely not bad for 0.8€/0.5l. 4126
