BlackHaddock (4964) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2012
July 2010: Brown 50cl bottle, the last of the three beers I’ve reviewed from this brewery. All the bottles were purchased from ’Beers of Europe’. Poured into one of my Franziskaner Weissbier glasses: It didn’t look too good actually, loads of floating sediment racing up and down the glass below a pure white (huge) head. I’ve never seen a Hefeweizen with so much muck hurtling around before. It wouldn’t settle because of the carbonisation of course, some items did rest on the base of the glass eventually, but not much. The body colour was the regular lemon/orange cloudy mix normally associated with Hefeweizen. I always expect vanilla and banana esters when I smell this style of beer, this had an apple and yeast aroma, not unpleasant but not what I wanted. The taste was weak and bland for this type of beer, not impressed. Of the 28 Hefeweizen I’ve had the pleasure reviewing on BA this is the worst. This brewery has let me down on all three beers I’ve had, not sure any German brewery has ever done that before. I’ll not be having a fourth.

Bottle. Amber color, hazy. Banana and a hint of citrus in the somewhat yeasty flavor. Hint of clove. Only moderately interesting beer.

Gary (1663) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2011 (bottled) A restrained hef , when i drink hefewizen , which is all the time , i want its somewhat simplistic , but often flavoursome character traits to be vibrant. Banana esters are subtle ..clovey spiciness is subtle. Some vanilla on the finish. Pretty dull.

Koelschtrinker (12859) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 4, 2011
Der Geruch ist dezent fruchtig bananig, der Geschmack auch. Im Nachgeschmack bildet sich ein leichter säuerlicher Geschmack aus, der aber nicht weiter ins Gewicht fällt. Durchschnitt - keine besonderen Höhen oder Tiefen. Test vom 22.9.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 13,8,8,7,7,8

Bierkrug (2132) - - APR 25, 2011
500 ml bottle in Germany. Thanks to Shrubber85. Pours a darker amber with a nice white full head. Aroma is bananas, fruit, and hefe. Taste is a sharp strop hefe with some fruit and bananas. Palate is mellow and sometimes sweet. Not bad but not great either.

Bottle. Dark copper clouds, creamy off-white head. Christmas-spice aroma. Clove, rye-bread, banana, vanilla. Mellow mouthfeel, chewy enough body. Spices and caramel retronasal, a bit dust.

Quack-Duck (8653) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2011
bottle from Landbierdealer. Cloudy brownish colour, large off-white head. Malty, wheaty, hints of fruit - but very shy fruity hints only. Wheaty flavours dominate. Good.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Darker than many hefes. Big, big head, but not big-as-in-infected head. Straight wheat all the way, brusque grain (wheat tanginess and dough) flavor, slightly sour and sweet, bready. Aroma grainy (bread) and peppery, and flowers, very natural. Quite good and fresh, from Piwoteka.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2010
Bottled. Copper colour with big, creamy remaining head. Bit disappointing aroma of sewer, along with earth and caramel. The flavour is as estery as the classics, there are suggestions phenols (vague band aid) and notes of caramel and earth. There are a lot of banana esters that coats the mouth so nicely. Mouthfeel is big-ish, with sweet maltiness in the end. Not much tin or nutmeg, just plain estery. No bitterness. I found this to be a bit different from the other hefes - due to the caramel thing.
