Bottle at Cafe Abseits Bamberg. Good banana fresh. Cloudy gold brown lasting cream head. Very ripe banana aroma. Quite dry and full in mouth. Pretty good.

bartlebier (1981) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2014
50cl screwtop bb03/2015, catered by Daniel, danke. Pale, hazy, tart interpretation of the style, taking it easy on the banana&clove milkshake and instead shooting for apricot, green apple and lemon rind on a bland yeast profile: almost a landbier in this respect, wheaty, yet none too rich in esters. Instead spicy hops take the stage, herbal, with pepper and mint. Very refreshing and something else than your usual weizenbrick.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Fresh bottle consumed at the brewery in August, 2014: Radiant golden with some haze. Creamy nonuniform white head. Very bright and clean aroma of dried pineapple, lemon balm, piecrust, minerals, clove, and cookie. Soft prickles of lush carbonation. Initial dryness is heightened by a vivacious phenolic punch and that trademark Zehendner minerality which clasps the tongue so forcefully. Well-attenuated body is artfully supported by a juicy splash of hop-derived nectar and lemony acids as well as plenty of ripe esters. Delicate note of bubblegum is nicely integrated and not at all intrusive. Wheat is cleanly extracted yet possesses no slippery starchiness to interfere with the lean, mineral-laced core or the high concentration of tropical fruit and Juicy Fruit gum succulence. Finishes squeaky clean and bone dry with a clovelike fervency and abundant flower nectar. A bracingly dry, snappy and immaculate weissbier that bursting with minerals. Hands down one of the driest beers of its ilk to be found in Franconia, or the world for that matter. Simply delightful.

downender (6526) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle at the Stöhrenkeller, Bamberg 11/8/2014. Hazy gold with a big, white, head. Solid Hefeweizen, with the usual, banana, clove and bubble gum notes. Good.

3fourths (8238) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 Bottle at the brewery, dated September 30 best by. Sparkling, highly effervescent gold. Stiff, tall head.
Phenolic mineral water nose, dominant note of banana with clean wheat expression. Fresh and lively in the mouth. Just about the perfect nose for weissbier, hard to find anything to improve or change. Lemon meringue and spiced clove sits in the background but adds a pleasant pepperiness to the wheat core. Light body, sugar and acid well-matched. If anything a little too banana-heavy in the mouth, but the nose seems flawless.

JulienHuxley (3482) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle from the brewery, at our Bamberg appartment. Hazy gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is grainy, spicy, light menthol notes (found this in most Bamberg weizens?) light clove, not much banana, more into the herbal and spicy bouquets. Taste is sweet, grainy with a lasting grainy/spicy/yeasty finish. Palate is med bodied with light carbonation. Not bad.

Koelschtrinker (11063) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 1, 2011
Säuerlich-hefiger, leicht herber Antrunk. Erfrischend, zu leicht, zum Ende hin eher langweilig und kaum aromatisch.

kegelstumpf (2) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - OCT 20, 2010 does not count
Had this at the brewery itself. Excellent very fruity banana aroma (maybe because of some special yeast?!) and in comparison to other german Hefeweizen it is hopped a bit more. The only demerit is the quickly resolving foam.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2010
Bottle at the brewpub. Banana aroma, slightly rough. Cloudy golden orange colour. Stable white head. The flavour has some banana, a little rough.
