3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Rating 420, there should be a soundtreat but it doesn’t play. Pours a hazy golden amber wtih big frothy white head. Aroma is wheaty and full of fresh banana. Flavor comes in with a yeasty doughiness and plenty of wheat and banana with hints of spice. Finish is short and clean. Moderate carbonation with a chewy but lighter mouthfeel. Well hidden alcohol. I will buy more for sure, very nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Bishop’s Arms SoFo, Stockholm. Cloudy dark yellow, small head. Strong banana aroma with a touch of toffee. Sweet and malty, fruity and near full bodied with some caramel and lots of banana esters. Alcohol is there, but acts in the background. Low bitterness. A warming, fruity beer, feels just as a ramped up hefeweizen.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy dark yellow color. Medium to large fizzy white head that quickly shrinks to a small cap. Nose is rubber, sour, and yeast. mouth feel is medium bodied and the finish is fizzy and a bit acidic. Taste is raquetballs, wheat, malt, lemon?, and some citrus. A great weizenbock in my opinion from a really great company.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
1 pint 0.9oz bottle: Pours a cloudy golden with a slight orange hue and a nice large head that lingers. Aroma has got the definite wiezen characteristics. A nice orange and lemon citrus spritz, banana, wheat overtones, spiced similar to a hefe. Taste is nicely robust and mouth filling. I was basically expecting a Hefe but this is nicely complex. A nice bite of citrus and wheat really make this a really luscious brew. Overall, Man this stuff is a good wiezen I really like this!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (500ml). Cloudy yellow-amber with a huge fluffy-fizzy white lasting head. Wow that smells great - lemony and sweet malt, like a dry hefe-weizen with woody overtones, bubblegum and light floral hops. The taste follows, like a banana-grassy hefe with hints of peat and iodine, quite tasty and slightly bitter in the finish. Juicy, slick mouthfeel, quite fruity and lively, slightly medicinal aftertaste- like everything from this brewery, really classy and well-founded.

The aroma is like a wheat beer! It has bananas, bubble gum, incense, and wheat. The appearance is hazy gold with a nice head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is what it should be. Overall it’s nice!

A very good heller Weizenbock. It’s fruite with a very nice banana flavor. A Good golden, yellow collar. It’s well balanced, with not much alcohol (7,7%). I think it’s as best to drink on a nice sunny day.

I’ve tried this, and I’ve tried Aventinus...I prefer the latter. This beer looked okay, nice head, but the color wasn’t quite as dark as I though it would be for its style. The beer was little too bitter for its style, and my taste. An okay beer, but there are better.

great to have a heller weizenbock around in case i dont feel like aventinus - i feel stupid not drinking aventinus most of the time because of how good it is and how available it is - but this is a good alternative. all the good stuff about a normal hefe amplified. in fact it doesnt get nearly as out of control as most lagers or ales at 7.7% - still swillable, only bigger. guess normal hefes have lots of fusels as they are. great head on this. vanilla/bread/aftershave aroma. tastes exactly like pavlova.
