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.

50cl bottle from Vimonopolet. Hazy golden with a bigh white head. Smell of banana hit me when I opened the bottle. Lots of banana in the aroma, but also citrus, spices, malt and yeast. Sweet and fruity with a slightly dry and slightly bitter finish. Nice summer beer!

Cloudy, medium orange body with a large, rocky and creamy off-white head with ok longevity and ditto lacing capabilities. Sweet, thick (yeah, thick, why not?) and strong aroma, reminds me of a weizen bock. Sweet fruits (banana), spices, yeast, perfume, soap and citric hints. Light sweet and light acidic taste and an unusually bitter finish. Very spicy flavours which combined with the almost stinging perfume notes and the bitter finish make this beer almost a bit rough, at least compared to other sugary banana hefeweizens. A very tasty, crisp, refreshing, lively carbonated beer with a medium body and watery to oily texture. A bit unusual for a hefeweizen, perhaps, but who cares.
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 4 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Ullevål Stadion, Oslo]

0.5l bottle. This one pours a heavy clouded almost murky orange-ish body with a big fluffy and lacing white head. It’s really banana sweet with lots of wheat, yeast and spices. Cloves I suppose. Quite intense actually, and not bad at all. Perhaps a bit to much? It has a average carbonation level and a mild oily texture. Flavors are also quite present. Lot’s and lot’s of ripe banana sweetness! Perhaps the most I’ve ever found in a wheat, and I also get tons of pepper! Not directly burning in the mouth, but definitely stingy. Wheaty finish with more pepper in the aftertaste. I served this fridge-cold, but some how it feels warm and it’s almost like it’s lacking some freshness. Nice enough and I’ll gladly admit that it tasted pretty good with a beer right about now, but I don’t feel the need to purchase this again. 05.05.2012

Small head, reddish cloudy appearance (more than usual!). Rather thin taste and aftertaste. Somewhat bitter. An OK hefeweisse, especially since its brewed in Sweden, but it doesnt hold against the best german ones.

ClubGonzo (3993) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours a thick hazy straw-hued yellow body with a small white head. Nose is bread dough, banana, hints of straw, grains and clove. Taste is straw, clove, doughy grain tones and hints of soap. Full-bodied with medium carbonation. Grassy bitter notes in the aftertaste; this seems to be slightly more hoppy than many in its genre which also makes it more refreshing. A quite nice hefeweizen, all in all.

Cunningham (4438) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 25, 2012
Hazy golden colour with a white head. Wheat, banana and light citric aroma. Not a typical german hefe weize. More citric than banana in the flavour. Very refreshing and tasty.
[Bottle from Systembolaget and on tap at Black sheep arms in Visby - Gotland, Sweden]

Linnet (1095) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2012
Aroma is the usual mix of banana, cloves, and actually has a light citron touch. Appearance is hazy golden with à white head. Flavour is the same as in the nose, good, but nothing that stands out.
