3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 5.2%. Good banana aroma. Cloudy yellow colour. Very big, stable white head. The flavour is wheaty with banana and citrus in good balance. I do not get any clove or other spicy esters. Good, wheaty mouthfeel, a bit thick. Prickly carbonation. A good example of a German Hefeweizen.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2011 Foamy head, blonde, cloudy. Citrus, chalk and a touch of detergent in the aroma. Lemon, bananayoghurt and some detergent in the flavor. Not very good, but the bananayoghurt is nice. Thanks, MoritzF, for the bottle.

Re-rate: brewed by Weiss Rössl Bräu Eltmann, al least the label metioned this. Bottle. Golden blonde, hazy. Tangerine, vinous notes and a hint of anis in both aroma and flavor. medium bodied, banana notes. Very drinkable weissbier with some refreshing sour notes.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (thank You, MoritzF): Slightly hazy, pale golden, stable white creamy foam; typical nose: mainly bananas, traces of citrus, maybe a tinge of cloves; sweetish-sourish flavour, mild; shorter sweetish-malty (traces of bisquits !) finish, nearly no tartness, a bit sourish-citrousy in the aftertaste. O.K., a cheap one, but not unpleasant at all...........

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty weak aroma for a Weiss bier. A little bit of fruity banana aroma but that is about it. Durable white head with ok lacings. Lots of carbonation. Cloudy yellow-orange colour. Pretty fruity taste with above-wheatbeer-average hop bitterness. Neither spectacular nor terrible.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy yellow colour. Lacey medium head. Aroma is full of banana and I do not mean that aroma or taste in a weizen that one calls banana, because it´s the closest approximation, but this smelled like I just peeled a banana. This real banana thing goes on in the taste. Fruity, slightly yeasty and sweet. Maybe a bit too less carbonation. I think it´s a decent beer, but the question is, do I want my weizen to taste somehow like a banana milkshake.
