COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A wheat bear from Gotland, made according to the Bavarian brewing tradition. Brewed inside the ancient walls of Wisby.

Ett veteöl av bayerskt snitt fast i gotländsk tappning. Överjäst och med 60% vetemalt enligt alla konstens regler. Vårt veteöl är en ”Hefeweizen” vilket betyder att jästen får vara kvar i det färdiga ölet. Detta bidrar till att smaken blir intensivare. Belönades med guldmedalj på Stockholm Beer festival 2008.

Doft
Tydlig blommig doft med inslag av mogna frukter som banan, aprikos och citrus.

Smak
Balanserad och fyllig med härlig smak av rostad malt och mogen banan.

andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2012
Hazy bright orange with a small white head. Typical yeasty banana estery aroma with phenolic band aid notes and grain. Quite sharp carbonation distracts an otherwise pleasant taste of raw grain, bubblegum, banana and tart fruit. Ends rather dry with some bitterness hanging around.

adnielsen (9891) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Tap @ Bishops Arm Stockholm. Fairly hazy golden orange appearance with a cream head. Fairly herbal, somewhat spicy, tangy orange, wheat malty aroma. Tangy, rich orange soda citrusy, nice bready, wheat malty flavor. Refreshing and tasty.

Foffern (1384) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2012
Bottle. Has a hazy orange colour with a big frothy off-white head. Nice aromas of fruits and banana, pale malt, hay and some yeast. More hay and pale malt in the flavour with only a hint of fruits, but also some citrus. Soft and smooth mouthfeel, with more bittnerness than expected. Smells good, but the taste feels a bit unbalanced. If you like a more bitter weizen, this is it.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 11, 2012
Bottle @ hotel in Sweden, Stockholm. Completely hazy, dark yellow blond coloured beer with some light carbonation and a small white head. Looks pretty heavy. Slight wheaty fruity and herby touched aroma with some slight vanilla yeasty hints. Rather full palate. Finish is full herby fruity hinted (orange, banana) light wheaty sweet bitter touched. Rather heavy weizen, you would probably not drink a few of them but pretty decent taste.

Kriegbaum (845) - Randers, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2012
Sample from the bottle. Slightly hazy golden beer with a medium white head. Aroma of wheat with notes of banana and yeast. Dry flavors of wheat and hops. Slightly bitter hoppy aftertaste

esp0r (2212) - NORWAY - JUN 8, 2012
Bottle from some random Vinmonopolet enjoyed at home
Orange hazy, medium big beige head. Smells of citrus and banana, yeast and wheat. Taste is quite wheaty, medium sweet, some reguar malts as well. Citrus and banana, some acids hidden. Subtile light bitter finish. Medium body, soft carbonation, watery texture. Quite enjoyable and refreshing, but of this style there are better ones and easier to get. I guess i’m not the one who buy this one again

tmrmwel (1172) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours a not too delicate hazy matt orange, with a finger thick head. Aroma is wheat/ hay, fruity with notes of pears and sweet apples and roasted malts. Flavour is honey, peach and orange which is obviously quite sweet, but still there’s a sour wheat-ish bitterness of hay which also lasts through the finish.

berlinoise2go (650) - NORWAY - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle (50cl) from Vinmonopolet (Sjølyst), Oslo. Finger-thick white head, reduces fairly rapidly, settles as a thin film. Hazy, greyish orange colour. Aroma of banana, yeast, overripe/fermented pears. Slightly sweet, refreshing, fruity taste, balanced by citrus acidity and citrus zest and hop bitterness. Dry finish. Light/medium body, soft carbonation.

RuneStumo (2326) - FØRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2012
26.05.2012. 0,5l Bottle. Vinmonopolet Haugesund. Cloudy orange colour with white head. Very nice wheaty aroma with notes of citrus and banana. Or is it banana skins? Very smooth weisse with a gentle wheaty sweetness and hoppy flavours of summer and sun. Good lasting aftertaste.

Holmen1 (3221) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2012
50cl flaske fra Polet. Litt pepperaktig, skarp smak med noe citrus, banan og krydder. En grei nok hveteøl men kort ettersmak og kan ikke måle seg med f.eks Schneider Weisse Tap 5 i smaksrikdom.
