Great beer at any price. I can’t believe that it was so cheap. The taste reminds me of a nice golden Helles, but it finishes clean and coherent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Dixie in Tel Aviv. Cloudy golden with a medium creamy white head. Aroma of banana, apples and more fruits, clove, citric hints and yeast. Sweet wheaty flavor with fruit esters, yeasty spiciness, some malt, caramel notes and a finish with more pronounced spiciness and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied. Tasty and quite refreshing but I prefer their regular Weissbier.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong clove and slight banana aroma. Very fruity. Hazy dark yellow with very large white head that lingers. Flavor is strong and similar to scent. Spicy clove, and banana, maybe some apricot. Finishes off with a slight flavor of darkness/roastyness. Slight hotness present. Spicy hops is mildly present and goes well with clove. Predominantly sweet/malty. Palate is medium full. Overall this is a very good beer, easily the best I have had of the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample from bottle at Glunz Beer Expo, April ’10. Yes, still a dozen more rating notes from 4 months ago. Lighter weizen, still very cloudy. Looks like a slightly darker witbier. Almost murky yellowish brown, a thing layer of "German" foam at the top. Smell has the yeasty burst of a good German weizen. Taste is pretty good and strong. Maltier than the usual hefeweizen, but I still get the expected wheat and yeast impressions. Some coriander type spice, slight banana, but no other esters. Just a nice malty backing. Neutral German hop bitterness. Stays with me after I finish even this little sample.

Bottle from Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam. Pours pale yellow with a huge fluffy white head. Aroma is typical for a hefeweizen, cloves and banana. Taste is on the sweet side, with some fruity notes. Weak hops and moderate cloves. Easy drinkable.

Pours a cloudy golden color. Highly carbonated on the palate. Spicy aroma; cloves & banana. Slightly peppery flavor followed immediately by some more spice; cinnamon and clove. Overall, its a nice beer for the autumn. I look forward to drinking more.

Very hazy and yellow - thick head. Aroma reminds me of a wheat beer with hints of banana. Taste has dark spices to it and is very nice (and now that I look up, I see it’s a wheat beer). When I have a malt liquor to tick it off the list, I’ll be upset with RateBeer. When I have a beer like this, which I otherwise would probably never try, I appreciate my ticking addiction.
