Poured into supplied glass from one pint bottle, simply beautiful. Cloudy pumpkin with thick head and excellent lacing. Typical wheat aroma, with same taste but decent malty flavor.

googleimage83 (47) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2016
Light brown with amber tinge, large head that shrinks fairly rapidly. Aroma is banana, clove, pastry. Taste is banana, bubblegum, belgian yeast, caramel, gingerbread. Luxurious palate much like the hefeweisen, with a similar flavour profile. Very sweet and desserty. I’ll take the hefeweisen over this on most days, but there’s not a lot of distance separating the two.

Gehbe (223) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - SEP 3, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2016 Cloudy deep amber with a huge offwhite head. Nose of caramel, baguette and crust, wheat, banana, some fruity and zesty notes, hints of spice, candy, smoke, yeast. Light to medium sweetness and tartness, hints of bitterness on finish. Smooth creamy and oily texture, medium body, high carbonation, extremely drinkable. Nice complexity and too damn drinkable!

Beers0mniac (110) - Joensuu, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2016
Hazy brown color with big frothy head. Bananas and sweet malts in aroma. Taste follows the aroma with lots of sweet malts combined with bananas and yeast. Enjoyable weizen

Echon (366) - Århus, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2016
Dark amber. Fruity and somewhat spicy, with notes of banana. Full, lightly sweet taste with a dry and lightly bitter finish. Medium body, with a soft texture. Overall, a good dunkelweizen. However, aside from the darker colour, I did not notice any difference between this beer and the normal hefeweizen.
