Keg at Academie de la Biere - Cathedral, Strasbourg, France. Cloudy orange with white head. Big banana, ester notes, but quite thin on the palate. Some herbal hints, some citrus but quite a struggle for me. Not over keen on this.

Bottle sample, thanks rayaron. Clear pale yellow with a white creamy head. Aroma of pale malt and honey, a bit floral and herbal. Sweet, grainy malt, bread and biscuit flavors with mild bitterness. Light-bodied, dry and smooth with soft carbonation. Decent.

Cerveza nada destacable, pero que siempre se agradece tener en el fondo del frigorífico para un día que quieras una cervecita normal.

Pours honey golden white foam. Nose is fresh slight malt and caramel. Taste is correspondingly fresh with light malty notes and a fine balanced bitterness. Compare to many other alcohol free beers this beer is surprisingly good. Most rate beer member does not rate such beer within the style and therefore low.

La classica helles tedesca molto dolciastra, che non ti dice assolutamente niente di nuovo, ma che comunque va giù senza fare troppi danni...

Weisse scura,precisamente color tonaca di frate con una schiuma pannosa di color bianco sporco.Abbastanza beverina in cui prevolgono gli aromi dolci del caramello e dei cereali.Gusto dolce con sentori di malto,lieviti,caramello e un sentore di miele.Come altre weisse si percepisce il gusto di banana.

Cerveza de trigo color ámbar claro, al olfato se percibe aroma a plátano y trigo, al paladar se percibe al principio el trigo y al final notas ligeras a plátano. Conclusión cerveza ligera con sabor dulce recomendada para aquellos que gusten de las cervezas a base de trigo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I think this is on the old side, though it was chilled in the dark. Poured with a fizzy head that quickly vanished and an unappealing dark amber color. Aroma wasn’t too bad, but nothing special- malty beery. Flavor was similar to nose with some fruit, no sign of hops. Tad thin. Would have to be better fresh.

Benediktiner Weissbier Dunkel
500ml bottle from Jumbo Costanera Center. Pours a deep dark amber color with some orange hues. Head is big (even with some gushing after opening) and leaves a good and irregular lacing. Aroma is a classic: banana, wheat and mild spices. A bit of coriander, peach and orange peel. Slight hints of toffee in the back. Not bad. Taste is quite tart for a Hefe. It’s the tart-est one I’ve tried with little sweetness. Fruity flavors add up to the main bready and grainy character. Pineapple, melon and green pear flavors. Nice. Medium body, lively but thin carbonation. Finish is a bit watery and leads to a short-lived spicy aftertaste. Not a bad Hefe at all, tart and different, pretty much on par with Erdinger.

Benediktiner Weissbier
500ml bottle from Jumbo Costanera Center. Pours a cloudy amber/orange color with a massive white pillowy head that diminishes slowly and leaves a film. Aroma is mild, wheaty and a bit spicy. Predominant notes of wheat, banana, spices, grains, dough and white bread. Not bad at all, but not really expressive. Taste is quite neutral, doughy, bready with some light tartness and evanescent fruity flavors. Hints of spice come through but never unfold completely. Light body, low to medium fizzy carbonation. Short, quick finish. Neutral aftertaste. A simple, by-the-book Hefe-weizen, far away from the best of their kind.

Bottle. Hazy golden/light orange body. Medium head. Aroma has banana and peary esters. Some honey and wheat too. Taste has plenty of banana and pear, on the sweet side and I like it. Rich mouthfeel. Even a bit jammy and Weizenbocky minus the alcohol. Really good Hefeweizen, surprisingly underrated here.

Bottle. Pours a murky orangy amber with a big, white, creamy but short lasting head. Aroma has lots of wheat, yeast, light bubble gum, banana, pear, plum, slight orange peel. Taste is rather sweet, fruity, bubble gum - almost minty. Slightly grainy finish. Creamy texture and a medium high carbonation. Decent weissbier.

Ettaler Curator Doppelbock
330ml bottle [Thanks to Barettalbier for this Top 50 Doppelbock!]. Clear, dark burgundy colour with small to average, thick, mostly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Mellow malty aroma, fruity notes of red berries, cherry, fig, raisin; caramel and toffee in the background, a touch of liquorice; dry hints of fruit parings tend to evoke resolvent allusions. Taste is moderately sweet fruity, again red berries, cherry, fig and raisin, additional notes of toffee, caramel, white coffee, interludes of treacle inspired sweetness; oily texture, slightly sticky palate. Rich and complex, relatively light for 9% abv, surprisingly fruity.

Pours light yellow with a thick head that dissipates to a thin ring with no lacing. Nose is faint cereal. Body is light medium. Taste is some malt sweetness with very little crispness and lingering bitter aftertaste. Another poor example of the style this date. Time for a Weinstephaner. 1/2 liter can MORE CANS!

500 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear golden colour with average white head. Aroma is slightly skunky grains, light grass and a bit of sulphur. Flavour is also grainy/grassy with a bit of a sulphur note. Average body and carbonation. Classic LCBO to bring in another forgettable Euro lager.

Bottle 33 cl from Bier-Bienne (CH). Reddish brown beer with refections ruby, average beige head. Aromas soft malted with notes of alcohol, red berries and chocolate. The taste is soft, round, with roasted, molasses-licorice, black cherry, choc and a touch of vanilla. Creamy beer, complex but heady. Bittersweet hop. The top of the style.

Pours s clear straw colour with very little head. Aroma notes are very subdued. Notes include light grains, grass clippings, and faint malt. Tasting notes include grain, orange peel, and slight hoppy finish. Very bland, and not a good model for the style.

Clear, dark copper in appearance with minimal head that fades to nothing. Aroma of bread pudding, overripe dark fruits, and sweet cooked sugars - fantastic. Flavor is nearly as good with sweet malty notes of prune and raisin dominating. I like sweet beers, and this one is near the far end of that spectrum. Very smooth with just a hint of alcohol and slightly syrupy/cloying, though finish is quite clean. Great stuff.
