2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2011 Draught at burger. Add me to the camps that didn’t really understand this one. Looks like a wit, smells like a hoppy Belgian with a weird fruitiness, and isn’t all that hoppy in the mouth. Could have been a little old but the flavors just seemed a little discordant, not really overtly oxidized. Not something I would get again and I love almost every other beer from Weihenstephan.

These are the experiments I like. Wheaty body, like a German weizener. With some delicious fruity hops. Good beer.

On tap at The Burrow. Rating from December 2013. Pale straw colour makes you think this beer has no flavour bug it is quite the opposite.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Irish Pub St. Michael, Oulu.
Hazy yellow beer and a white head. Fruity aroma ish fresh, floral, yeasty and hoppy. Flavour is wheat malts, tropical fruits, quite dry and hoppy. Bitterness not on a very high level. I like the regular Weihenstephaner Hefe more than this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Tasting sample at Beer Cartel) Hazy yellow with big white head. Very pleasant typical German wheat beer aroma with banana ester and little evidence of hops. Light body with lively carbonation. Good flavour; to me it started off traditional wheat beer, light and tangy, and developed some good elegant hoppy bitterness in the finish, unusual for the style. A nice beer - the variation works well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasting sample from growler tap at Beer Cartel. Interesting concept, a traditional brewer (arguably world's oldest brewery) doing their interpretation of a new world style. Kinda full circle. The result is not bad. Still the classic Weihenstephan signature aromas and tastes but with citrusy hops as well. For me, it's good as a concept beer but doesn't hold a candle to their standard hefe for regular drinking.
