Un grand merci à Ju-Lo pour le partage de cette délicieuse blanche que nous nous sommes envoyée en ce 500e anniversaire de la loi de la pureté allemande - loi qui fit son entrée en vigueur en 1516. Alles Gute zum Geburtstag! Nez de bananes vertes sur le point d’être mûres, d’épices, de céréales blanches et d’une douce levure gomme-balloune. Douceur parfaite en bouche. Le liquide me coule en bouche avec une douceur des plus appréciables, laissant dans son sillon un délicat arrière-goût de blé, de cardamone et de cette banane verte et trop fraîche. Tout simplement délicieuse et facile à boire! Taboada (1355) - Compostela (Galiza), - MAY 30, 2016
500 mml bottle tasted on the 27/07/2016. Cloudy pale orange colour with a nice and thick white head. Aroma of wheat, banana and cerals. Taste is mid fruity and grainy with some caramel and yeast. Next one please! hauxe (777) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2016
Pours dirty orange from the bottle. The head is bubbly and rapidly collapses. Lots and lots of evident carbonation. The aroma is yeasty. Taste trends sour at the outset, with an underlying sweetness. The carbonation is quite aggressive on the palate during the first few sips, much more in line with a soda than a bock beer. Then the surprise. The palate settles down and the beer takes on a new depth. The sourness becomes less pervasive, and an apple pie sweetness takes over. The aroma also becomes more nuanced, an interesting mix of ripe banana and pear settles over the yeasty background.
By the end of my bottle, about 25 minutes later, the palate was very nearly flat. The swings in the palate are disconcerting. Amazingly despite 7.1% there was no trace of alcohol, and not even much warmth.
An intriguing beer. Going to have to drink a couple of these to fully make up my mind. Grzesiek79 (4300) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 14, 2016
Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. Piwo ma srednia piane i srednio trwala. Jak na pszenicznego kozlaka to nie jest zbyt ciezkie. Metne i to bardzo, morelowa barwa i zapach pomaranczowej skorki, bardzo silny aromat gruszek i bananow. W smaku nmus jabjkowo bananowy, melon i odrobina przyprawy chyba z kurkuma mi sie kojarzylo lub curry. Bardzo smaczne wyraziste i po prostu smaczne piwo. Alkoholu jak na ten styl stosunkowo malo, polecam sudomorph (1167) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours a murky orange, with an active white head that thins to a thick film. Aroma has big notes of banana, citrus, bread, candy sugar, fruity esters, and slight spice. Taste is balanced. Banana, bread, caramel, dark candy sugar, apple, citrus, and slight toffee fudge at the end. Delicious. Medium-full body with a medium-high carbonation. Clean and active in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall a very enjoyable beer. Lots of banana, caramel, citrus, bread, toffee, candy sugar, and a dry, easy drinking finish.

Bottle from LCBO in Oakville. Aroma of fruit sweetness. Very sweet flavor of ripe bananas and candy sugars . Virtually no bitterness and not boozy at all despite being 7.1% abv. Full bodied. One of the best of this style I’ve had. anstei (2254) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 11, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. A candy weizenbock, how unusual! Has the air of a Belgian ale made with wheat. Sweet and oily, yet not boozy at all. Low but crisp carbonation carrying all that, with the support of a little cider-like sourness. Some ripe banana, but really not all that much.
