Koelschtrinker (11062) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Schmeckt ganz nett, süßlich im Mittelteil und ein wenig sauer werdend im Nachgeschmack. ALlerdings ist es ziemlich wässrig. Wirklich hell ist es auch nicht, könnt man auch zu nem dunklen zählen. Ob das Xanthohumol jetz so nen Unterschied macht? Man weiß es nicht... Test vom 25.5.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,12,12,8,12,11

poolboy (66) - Lafayette, Indiana, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Spicy in both nose and palate. Plenty of clove. Slightly sweet, but definitely tart. Sort of an orange color with lots of head. Spicy aftertaste.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2007
Bottle, 5.4%. Very nice spicy aroma with lots of clove. Almost clear grey copper colour. Big, stable white head. The flavour is dominated by clove with a little sweetness and a little underlying yeast. Low, but not totally absent bitterness.

pivnizub (9030) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2006
Bottle (33cl): Hazy, amber coloured, small but stable off-white head; impressive fruity (ripe black berries, wine, bananas lemons or oranges) nose; sweet and tart flavour, quite full bodied, velvet MF; fruity, a bit tart finish with a tinge of aromatic hops (!). A fine, well rounded and satisfying Weizen !

Bov (9810) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 24, 2006
cloudy very dark orange colour, nice creamy beige head with a beautiful lacing; robust banana aroma with notes of honey, some tartness and a high carbonation; decent malt body; moderately dry finish with more banana notes - really pleasant

EithCubes (5089) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2006
Bottle. Hazy orange with a massive creamy beige head, fluffing and lacing its way along. Smells strongly of wheat and yeast with some banana. Taste is wheaty with a little acidity and a small off-note. Not as tasty as the aroma would suggest, and there’s no spiciness here, for shame! Feel is creamy and soft but thin. Overall a little murky and depressing, my taste buds are still frowning. Quite a disappointment after the buildup.

caesar (5323) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2006
I shared a bottle with skortila, quite some time ago. As evidence the label is still pasted on the cupboard-doors in the kitchen as ’design’. But i know for sure i rated this beer. Somehow some ratings seem to disappear?

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 20, 2006
A hefeweizen with a twist. Pours hazy yellow with a generous straw like white head. Smells lemony with some vanilla notes. Taste is of lemons, vanilla, woody and some mellow sugary notes.
