Die Rezeptur für dieses außergewöhnliche Hefeweizen bleibt Geheimnis der Familie Zötler und ihrer Braumeister. Eher helle Farbe mit natürlicher und gleichmäßiger Trübung, abgerundet durch einen sehr dichten und feinporigen Schaum. Mit der Nase erahnt man das sehr ausgewogene Fruchtaroma mit einerleichten Note nach reifen Bananen. Selbst gezüchtete obergärige Bierhefe sind verantwortlich für die besondere Geruchs-Reinheit. Voller, weicher Körper im Antrunk, verbunden mit einer spritzigen Frische und einer angenehmen, weizentypischen Kombination von Süße und Bittere im Abtrunk. Warum das vollmundige Geschmackserlebnis des Zötler Hefeweizens „fast süchtig“ macht – das müssen Sie einfach selbst herausfinden.

BeerViking (2084) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle, pours golden with just a faint haze and a big white head, light notes of banana and a hint of lemon on the nose, malty and lightly fruity body with touches of spice, bread and citrus, and a light hoppy bitterness. Nice easy-drinking example of the style.

Hefig-bananig in der Nase. Antrunk süßlich-hefig. Danach bananig, süß. Gewürzter Abgang, Banane, würzige Züge. Ok.

Bamsen78 (2411) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours cloudy pale yellow with airy but stable white head. Clear aroma of yeast, citrus and banana, with notes of hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with estery notes and pronounced elements of citrus and banana. Acetic and rough finish. Rather watery. OK, but far from a masterpiece.

Bottle 50cl, a cloudy golden beer with medium head. Nose is on wheat, pineapple but also lemon. Aroma is mostly on, pineapple and lemon again, less malty, bit watery. Finish is astringent with low fresh bread touch.

JK (4283) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Draught at a restaurant in Fussen, on the day of my engagement. Opaque gold color and a tall, thick white head. Lots of banana and sweet wheat. Thick and heavy mouthfeel, and very rich palate. A great weizen.

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2013
Hazy white yellow colour, white head. Aroma of citrus, wheat, hay, bread, quite fresh. Light sweet, light sour wheat flavour, citrus and bread. Light sour wheat finish, citrus and a hint of cloves.
Very light on banana for a Hefe-Weizen. Good, because I’m not big on banana myself, and it makes it lighter and more refreshing than most Hefe-Weizens I know. Very decent brew.
(From 0.5L bottle @ home. Thanks for getting me the bottle, David!)

Grzesiek79 (2964) - Radom, POLAND - MAR 23, 2013
Średnie pszeniczne, delikatne i malo wyraziste. Male zmetnienie, kolor jasny jak na bawarska pszenice, orzezwiajace, nuty bananowe wyczuwalne, brak innych cech harakterystycznych dla tego stylu.
