Hazy light orange with a lasting white head. Banana, bubblegum and a touch of citrus in the aroma. Refreshing, sweet and fruity beer. crossovert (13747) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Got some of this from the. original import shipment, it seems like it is a Winter seasonal now judging by the label art. 7.1% alcohol, I’m expecting a REA imperial Hefeweizen.
Pours into my non branded weizen glass with a huge white head. The head is kind of watery and doesn’t for the big mounds of fluff like most weizens do. No lacing whatsoever. The beer is a hazy goldish with hints of orange Hefeweizen color with golden edges.
Smells pretty damn good for this style. You get the typical Hefeweizen notes like banana, wheat, and clove but with an infusion of black licorice and some other spice perhaps. You can even pick up the alcohol in the scent.
The taste is heavier and sweeter than a normal Hefeweizen. Has some lemon, clove, and banana in the taste along wiht osme creamy vanilla and black licorice in the finish. The yeast adds a nice tang to it aswell.
The carbonation is prickly and active, but not over the top, lending to a fair drinkability. The alcohol becomes more apparent as you go.
This is a great wheat beer for the Winter, proves you can have it year round for all those naysayers out there.

Bottle. Pours lightly hazy gold with a large, creamy-frothy white head, good retention with good lacing. Aroma is huge banana esters with caramel and vanilla nose, light bread and biscuit malt. Light citrus hops and a warm, near fusel alcohol character as it warms. Flavor is alcohol to start with moderate caramel malt, sweet toast and biscuit notes and a light hop bitterness. Banana esters and a dry finish. Medium bodied, medium-high carbonation.

Bottle from Tbone, thanks! Orange blonde, cloudy. Mandarine curacao and clove in the aroma. Very fruity flavor (banana, tangerine, mango, pineapple) mixed with some warming alcohol. Nice one! Rune (13384) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 9, 2007
330ml bottle bought at the Brauereigastof in Aying in June 07 and enjoyed at home in Tromsø from an original Ayinger glass. Served slightly chilled. Hazy, pale orange body supported by a creamy, white head, slowly fading. Enjoying aroma of overripe banana blend with clove. Balanced taste of sweet sappy and acidulous fruits. Wheaty freshness is also noticeable. Moderate yeasty ending. More weizen than bock, but still very pleasant to drink (Tromsø, 08.09.2007). Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 9, 2009

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a large white head and some murky grey sediment. Sweet malt and a light musky banana yeast note. Spicy and tingly, but a little bit papery and sweet. Finishes up with more spicy yeast and some caramel notes.
