jfb (5569) - Freising, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2011
(bottle) pours a hazy golden colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of grass and moist earth, slightly phenolic, with notes of peaches and wheat. flavour is popcorn and earth, with a hint of caramel, quite thin. light-bodied with average carbonation and a semi-dry finish.

Kavu (4187) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2011
Pours hazy yellow with a high but quickly dissipating head. Aroma is pretty weak, mostly wheat. Flavor is wheat with some banana and lots of yeast. Tastes like normal Weihenstephaner that’s been diluted with water, except there’s even more yeast. Drinkable, but not great.

FatPhil (14155) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 1, 2011
500ml bottle (K Market, Kamppi)
6 Slightly feeble aroma, but clearly a bready hefeweizen.
4 Hazy orange, tight white head, not as creamy as a good hefe can provide.
6 Again, all the features of a good hefe, lovely breadiness and a decent aromatic noble hoppy bite too.
3 Fairly watery, but refreshing and with enough fullness to not feel too thin. Pleasant carbonation. Finish is lovely and wheaty and bready, and those lovely aromatic noble hops continue too. But deep down, it’s a bit on the watery side.
11 At lunchtime, this is perfect. Of if I want to remain stone-cold sober all evening. But there’s a thinness that detracts, it doesn’t have that luscious fullness I want off a wheat beer.

Koelschtrinker (17734) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 4, 2011
Nach dem katastrophalen Alkoholfreien nun das Leichtbier. Es riecht außerordentlich würzig und hefig, dazu süß, dass dies kein vollwertiges Weizen ist, erkennt man hier nicht. Im Antrunk ist die Hefigkeit durchaus ansprechend, eine Fruchtigkeit ist dagegen nicht zu erkennen. Die erschnupperte Würze bleibt weitestegehend außen vor. Im Mittelteil deutlich weniger hefig, hier ist das Bier dann doch etwas wässrig, für ein Leichtbier aber überaus gut. Im Nachgeschmack ergeht es einem ähnlich, zustzlich versucht sich das von alkoholschwachen Bieren bekannte penetrante Aroma durchzusetzen, schafft es aber nicht. Verdammt gut! Test vom 14.3.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,9,9,8,8,9 - 8,80

Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 27, 2011
0.5 l bottle from City-Market Keljo, Jyväskylä. Yellow golden color. The aroma and flavor is dry and spice dominated with clove, pepper and vanilla, grainy wheat is in background. Mouthfeel is light but sharply carbonated. Not a bad leichte weisse, but this clearly feels thin and lacking.

TET (2681) - Kaarina, FINLAND - FEB 19, 2011
Cloudy, light yellow beer with big and blond head; similar than normal Weihenstephaner hefe. Aroma is fresh, wheat, some sourness, bananas and hint of spicyness. Taste is wheatish, bananas, some sourness and some plastic in the aftertaste, overally taste is mild and short. Quite light body with high carbonation, still nice to drink. Basic, good hefe, the beer for thirsty body. But this is not even close with normal Weihenstephaner hefe, there are same element, but too they are too mild.
