White head under a murky brown body. Solids on the bottom of the glass. The head quickly diminishes. Medium body, smooth without carbonation; flat. Sweet, caramel, plain, a bit floral. A little liveliness would go a long way. Overall, it reminds me of a flat soda. Was looking for a different German Hefeweizen at the store. Might try this one again later to see if it was just from an off batch/shipment.

Banana, Diacetyl like aromas, very yeasty in a good way. Could be a bit heavier. For the price (0.6 € in Hungary on sale) a good, all day drinkable beer.

goozen (3136) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle 0,5ltr: Cloudy yellow colored brew with an dry bitter taste with some faintly banana hints. Bought this thirstquencher at mine surprise by the Dutch HEMA sore.

Arek (370) - Zielona Góra, POLAND - FEB 8, 2015
Can 0,5 l, brewered by Privatbrauerei Eichbaum, Intermarché, Zielona Góra, Poland.
Złote, mętne piwo o obwitą, puszystą ale szybko opadającą piana i przyjemnym, pszenicznym, lekko bananowym aromatem. W smaku trochę wodniste, lekko bananowe z goździkami i męczącą, metaliczną goryczką na finiszu.

loco_gallego (202) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Blonde bien voilée. Mousse blanche relativement persistante. Maltage bien présent genre pain, avec ensuite les typiques bananes et épices. Banane relativement peu présente pour une German Hefenweizen. En bouche très légère acidité et wheat levures, sinon inintéressante et plate. Très peu de carbonatation.

djoeye (1997) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2015
Hazy hazy grey golden. Near white great foam. Aroma; wheat malts, lemony hops, coriander, cinnamon, vanilla, batflower, ginger. Taste; wheat malts, lemon, yellow apple, dough, mandarine, ripe bananana, leading to a slight dry sticky finish with sweet white bread and notes of syrup. Normal body n feel. Alright, but very "limonade-ish". [50cl can 5.3% ?°, BB11122015 , B@ATB Kremenchuk UA]

MartinT (8247) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
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.

Can.

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