500ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 26-09-2015.
BBD: 06-05-2016.
In short: watery "wheat" ale.
Pours quite hazy deep gold-orange with frothy off white head, long retention, good lacing. Smells of cereal and spices. Light bodied, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is cereal, malty, some spicy, quite dull and watery, boring "beer".

500ml bottle into weizen glass. Slight grainy hop nose. Crystal clear golden amber beer with towering solid white head. High carbonation. Watery taste with slight sour finish. Looks great, tastes ordinary.

Was soll man groß sagen ? Ein alkfreies Weizen wie jedes andere. Eigentlich recht einfach zu trinken, dabei ordentlich im Getreide und ein wenig reifer Früchte. Ganz ok, wenn auch holzig und dumpf zum Schluss.

Bottle (500 ml) bought @ Épicerie Lauzière. Split 3-ways.

Appearance: Clear bright golden with a small persistent white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Raisins and fruits forward with skunky notes, grains and herbal presence.

Taste: Very similar to the aroma plus some raisins sweetness. Skunk, cereals, herbal notes and moderate fruitiness.

Palate: Light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Raisins finish.

Overall: I hope this is just a bad bottle because I’m used to top quality stuff from Weiheanstephaner and this is nowhere near to a good beer. I had their Hefeweissbier Alkoholfrei (bought from the same source) a week or so ago and it was really good so this is really disappointing. Skunky, raisins forward and plain bad.

Bottle shared. Clear pale gold pour with tenacious white head. Aroma is fruity, grainy, light grape, flour. Bready flavor, light grapes, flour. Palate is light, watery. Meh.

KeefOz (1425) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2015
BB 02.12.2015. Poured a crystal clear pale amber with a one-finger white frothy head that retained well but laced poorly. Aroma of malt but no obvious hops. Taste was very sweet, too sweet, with no real hops bitterness. Light body, bordering on watery. Smooth, crisp and refreshing when cold with an ever so slight bitterness on the finish.

500ml bottle from DMs. This is OK for a low alcohol helles lager with sweet grainy malts and light lemony notes on the nose and tongue. Palate is predictably thin and rather flat. Pours straw yellow with a medium white head.
