rumproasts (4448) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 22, 2015
bottle. Golden with one finger head. Iím not sure why this hasnít caught on more, but this is a pretty solid hefe that has been hopped up a bit. Underlying hefe is aboverage with some sweet wheat and light banana. Hops arenít overdone, but add a nice kick to the finish. Recommended.

JK (5410) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2016 Not a good weizen. Color is too light and the foam too thin. Also too thin, the palate. Flavor is light, some wheat sweetness, no banana, clove. Some haze but lacks the opaque appearance of better German examples. It is not a cheap beer in a 22 oz bottle which makes all of these problems worse.

Boutip (5464) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle: Poured a lightly hazy blonde color ale with a nice pure white foamy head. Aroma of light wheat malt with dry hoppy finish. Taste is a mix of wheat malt notes with light sweet notes offset by some dry non-deScript hops notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not bad but seems like this one is stuck between the classic weizen and the hoppyweizen and is not sure where to go at.

scotchzombie (481) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 20, 2015
Cloudy straw yellow with a lumpy white head that fades slowly to a coating and laces. Aroma is bready malts and yeast. Taste is the same but with hints of lemon and bubblegum and a light noble hop bitterness out back. Very drinkable. Mild flavors and probably a good choice for a non Weiss lover.

rejtable (2011) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2015
Pours clear straw with some foamy head and lots of lacing. Nose/Flavours floral, banana, yeast and cereal. Taste light bitter, light sweet. Light body with light carbonation.

Lubiere (11919) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2015
A hazed golden Weisse with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet creamy fruity malt with light chalky character, light banana esters and phenolics, nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with light grassy banana esters, cloves, light oxidation, chalky character, OK. Bottle via Spinrsx.

Art (2695) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Sample from the brewery. Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head. Aromas of bread and a fruity grapey yeast aroma. Very faint banana. More pils like. Taste is lightly sweet but mostly crisp. Very traditional.

DialSquare (3784) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Bomber from Andersons in Dublin (I think): gold pour with big fluffy white head and visible carbonation. aroma of spices - clove, bread, background banana. tastes are wheat, clove, honey, apple. palate is lively medium. finishes dry and lightly bitter. clean and good balance. donít drink the style much anymore, so itís tough to place. solid generally.

ilovedarkbeer (2573) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Pours a golden color with a medium sized foamy white head. Notes of honey banana and clover cereal. Missing that rubber and heavy bubblegum of most hefes.
