Capa (3301) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Glowing hay in color with a quickly diminishing white head. Sweet aroma of banana, yeast, herbal spices, and clove. Full bodied. Flavor is a bit off, but not bad. Spicey, yeast, sweet malts, and some banana. Not a bad hefe, but I can’t say it’s worth picking up twice.

My Bottom Line:
This Weizen’s honeyed bananas submit to a soft fizz before spicy, herbal hops successfully reach equilibrium.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A thin veil of foam lays atop the honeyed gold haze.
-The round body remains cushiony and therefore the beer is easily downed.
-Yeast offers esters and a pleasant spicy character.
-This straightforward Weizen wasn’t that memorable, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a solid example of its style.

Bottle; thx Tim!

yeeeeeeeees (5) - Shinjuku, Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 11, 2005 does not count
A lingering cobweb-like head sits atop a lovely misty, rouge colour. Potent aroma which has greater complexity than most Japanese weizens. Why? Because it doesn’t smell like a candy shop. Spicy banana scent reminiscent of cloves or coriander. The taste lives up to expectations. Effervescent tangy front, spicy mellow rear and an overall malty vanilla mouthfeel. Light, well-balanced and refreshing. Marvellous effort.

A cloudy golden red hue, bannany nose, fragrant spicy light mouth with cloves, bananas and a refreshing finish. Excellent summer beer.

IslandHaole (1268) - Misawa, JAPAN - MAR 3, 2005
Looks nearly identical to the Apple Lager I just has. Slightly hazy golden but a bit orangey with a white head. Banana and cloves as should be, no tangy off scents as a few other Japanese Weizens have had. Bingo, the chaps at Baeren score another bullseye! A tasty Weizen true to style, very good. Strong banana and mild spice, some vanilla in the follow. After trying their 3 newest brews (Chocolate Stout, Apple Lager and now this), a road trip to Morioka is on for this weekend!
