My Bottom Line:
This very sweet and bready Hefeweizen does have some fruity esters to share, but even they are super ripe and feel heavy.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam covers the murky beige.
-Wheat is very present in the flavor profile, but feels limp instead of cracking.
-This drinks like liquefied banana bread mostly because of the residual sugars and lower-than-usual carbonation (for the style).
-This is probably the antithesis of the lively, complex and fragrant Weissbiers à la Weihenstephaner, for example.

Rien de bien extravagant mais fort agréable à déguster! Les agrumes et les céréales sont mises à l’avant-plan. Bonne mais moyenne...

eduardovl (970) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 0.5l poured in a chalice. I’ve paid $1 per bottle in a 6 pack. I’ve bought it at Denner Switzerland and, because of its low price, I was expecting a low quality beer. Fortunately, I was wrong. This is a quite fair Hefeweizen beer. A: Pours a hazy beige color with a foamy head. Reasonable carbonation. S: Malty smell is very present. The traditional bananas and cloves smell is quite discrete. T: Well balanced. Again, the malt prevails against the bananas/cloves M: Full body. Medium to low carbonation with quite pleasant malt taste. Low Hefeweizen bitterness D: Good drinkability. Fair Hefeweizen. Very welcomed in a summertime. [ BA Review @ 1/23/2010 ]

Cloudy orange color, medium sized white head. Grapefruit, banana and wheat aroma. Medium sweetness. Thin body, average carbonation. Watery finish. This is actually a great surprise. It is quite tasty for a price of less than 1 euro.

Mainuh_man (243) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2014
0.5L can. Hazy yellow with a frothy white head that dissipates quickly. Typical banana, clove and citrus aromas, fairly pronounced. Mild sweetness at beginning, a bit watery in the middle, the finishes with a mild, dry yeast character and some of the malty sweetness. Light body with a creamy mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, a decent weissbier, mouthfeel and aroma stand out in this, less so the flavor, but very quafable..
