500 ml bottle from Oliver’s Beverage Center. Date on bottle neck reads 3/29/2013. After opening and drinking I’m sure that is a best before date. That being said, it was still real decent. Darker than normal Weiss color, real hazy amber with lasting head. Malty caramel with light yeast esters. Effervescent body with semi-sweet banana and light clove. I would love to re-rate and find this on draft. A maltier example of a style I love. Sigmund (8033) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2014
500 ml bottle, bought in Denmark, probably at Voldby Købmandsgaard. ABV is 5.4%. BB date 20.07.13. Hazy orange colour, large white head. Smells a bit "off", sweetish notes of malts and caramel, only hints of banana and cloves. The flavour is somewhat better, malty character, not too sweet, but again the typical hefeweizen notes of "banana & cloves" are very subdued. Lacks some of the "freshness" of a better hefeweizen, Might buy a fresher bottle at another occasion, to re-rate. Ernest (7890) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2012

Weird and unpleasant aroma, rather foul aftertaste...a complete hunk o’ junk, this is. lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 30, 2012

Pours a hazy golden colour with a white frothy head. Aroma of sweet fruity and citrusy fruits. Flavour of wheat, fruits, citrus and some toffee. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a fruity, slightly dry finish. Refreshing.
(Bottle, 0.5 l, at William K Kurvi, 20120422) The beer poured orange and cloudy. Its head was quite large, dense and white. Aroma had clove, banana and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, clove, banana, malts, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. Nice and clean hefeweizen with a watery and short finish.

50cl Bottle from Vomar Noordwijk. Brewed for Benediktiner Weissbräu in Ettal, by Licher, so my bottle says. Hazy golden orange colour, dense off-white head. Aroma of sweet banana, clove, yeast, wheat, typical Hefeweizen fare. Flavour is medium-sweet, spicy, clove, banana, some light-refreshing wheat, light-bitter finish. Light-bodied, firm carbonation. Decent Weizen. olsvammel (7313) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2014 On tap at Independent Café in Luxemburg. It had a slightly sour smell with some fruits. The sourness was present in the taste as well. Not sure if this is intentional or an infection. It did have the usual wheat beer aromas. Re-rated on tap at the same pub. The sourness wasn’t present so must have been a misstreated keg. Very sweet though. mike_77 (7275) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2012
Hazy orange with decent lacy head. Although the flavour is not strong it is well balanced. Lies on the spicy side with a little bit of orangey sweetness.
