Can’t say I really believed that I would find a better hefeweisen than Hacker Pschorr, but I think I just did it. Guess it makes sense that the world’s oldest brewery would be able to unseat the champ.

Spisane z Notatek kiedy Ratebeer był w zeszycie i główne poszukiwania nowych piw i smaków, odkrywanie świata to były głównie piwa zagraniczne w dużej mierze niemieckie,
Piwo wypite: maj 2008,
Z notatek wynika że smakowało jak na tamten czas :)

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells like a wheat beer, but with some harshness.
Pours a cloudy light gold colour.
Taste is similar to Erdinger, but with a harshness in the aftertaste. i can’t place it.
Lots of carbonation,
Overall I was not disappointed. Although I do prefer Erdinger over this one, even though this one had less of a fruity taste, which I prefer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Finally rating this. 500 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy bright orange color with a large white head. A big clove, banana, citrus wheat nose. Rich almost sour wheat, tangy, banana, sweet malty base. Light spices, clove and lemongrass. Very smooth palate. Yes, this is lovely. Hard to imagine many more drinkable beers.

Liter crushed at the brewery paired with some weisswurst just to make it official. Cloudy golden pour with a huge white head and excellent lacing. Fruity esters, bananas, cloves. Definitely the best hefe I’ve ever had. Could drink about a thousand of these.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 mL bottle poured into a hefeweizen glass. The aroma is a mellow, creamy banana and vanilla with a complimentary clove and some subtle undertones of peaches. The beer is a cloudy pale with a hint of gold to it, and is topped by a creamy and frothy white head that retains well and leaves a light lace. The taste is a mellow and mild medium sweet with medium low bitterness. A creamy texture and carbonation go down smooth and easy with a medium body containing notes of fresh baked bread, banana, orange, vanilla, and a light woody clove spice that finishes clean with a lightly bitter clove and citrus zip and crispness that mellows quickly and turns over to a light oranges and nila wafers combination which stick in the aftertaste with a touch of lemon, and a lactose hint. Quite delightful.

0,5 liter, 5.4%. bleek helder met geel/witte kraag. aroma van banaan, citrus, stro, gist en mout. Smaken van banaan, citrus, koriander, gist, mout, matig zoet, iets aan de dunne kant. te zoet en ik had er iets meer van verwacht... wat beperkt... flets...

On tap at Sřernes Řlbar, Copenhagen. Cloudy bright yellow with a small white head. Nice aroma with wheat, yeast, fruity (banana) with notes of spices (coriander maybe?). Strong bitterness, with a hint of acidity. Round palate turning slightly sweet in the aftertaste.

Splendida weiss, giallo paglierino torbido con una persistente schiuma bianca. Profumo dolce di banana, al palato perfettamente bilanciata, nel complesso dolce ma senza esagerare. Carbonazione vivace.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Vanilla, wheat, banana, hops
Appearance: Yellow (dark,) some haze
Taste: Wheat, banana, vanilla, similar to the aroma, sweet with a touch of bitterness
Palate: Silky smooth, so drinkable
I’d drink this daily if I wasn’t so lazy and if I wanted something not super alcoholic.
Also, they are right, it does go with Weisswurst, thank you local German pork store.
