Defreni (3295) - Husum, - AUG 12, 2012
Flaske> Flot orange uklar med et fint stort t;tsiddende skum. Duften er let banan, men ellers en del maltet. Smagen er ogs[ maltet, men bakket op af en fin syrlighed. God sommerbajer.

theprof (1236) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2017
Tap. Bread cereal yeasty aroma. Pours orange hazy body thin lacing. Taste is medium sweet to lightly sour. Medium bodied, sticky texture, soft carbonation, no great languor. Overall fine but unremarkable.

Luneylane (233) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - NOV 6, 2017
A bottle from the basement of Shinkong Mitsukoshi, opposite Main Station. Aroma: a bit sour. Appearance: cola, hazy amber, 5mm. off-white bubbles. Palate: light-bodied, rather thin, soft carbonation. Predominantly sweet finish. Taste: medium sweet, bubblegum at the finish, though the flavour is not sustained. Alright, nothing special.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2017 Botella 50 cl cortesía MTere Villaobispo 02..11..2017. (r645). Color amarillento marrón claro turbio con bastante espuma blanca persistente. Sabores frescos afrutados, plátanos, cereales. Cuerpo ligero a medio algo espumoso fácil de beber. Normal. Ligeramente refrescante.

Rychuku (225) - POLAND - NOV 2, 2017
Looks amazing, amber, hazy, firm, tall foam. Smells typically, not too intesively, i.e. bananas and coriander, but also some iron. The taste is very good, It's light, smooth, dry, bananas are present. Also some pleasant, medium for the style, bitterness in the back. Very drinkable. One good weiss!

Nikokaoja (380) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - OCT 31, 2017
31. 10. 2017, Klimno. Bottled. Nice familiar yeasty aroma, a bit held back. Orangey unfiltered colour with full blown head with low retention. Taste is classical Heffeweizen beer, banana notes, properly balanced. Mouthfeel is fullbodied, med carb, a bit of silky feel to it. Nice, but not quite among the best.

GTAEgeek (2411) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2017
0,5 L bottle, at Burg Eltz. Pours a dark, hazy orange, with a big, frothy, cream colored head. The aroma is orange peel, coriander, bread dough, and pepper. Sweet, with a mild, pleasant bitterness. Light body, with a chewy, thick, and bready mouthfeel. This is an easy and delicious weizen.

Slightly cloudy reddish-orange beer with a thick foamy bright white head. Nose of cloves, banana, and apricot. Flavor is more of the same with sweet spice, bubblegum, and banana with a barely discernible bitterness counterbalancing somewhat. Good beer for the style, but a tad sweet for me.

dnstone (3524) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - OCT 8, 2017
Pours a hazed golden orange with white head. Fruity estery aroma and flavors. Notes: on tap in NYC, Oct '17

equisetum (126) - Kielce, POLAND - OCT 7, 2017
Piwo złote, mętne z piękną obfitą drobnopęcherzykową pianą. W aromacie mamy słód, banana i nutę drożdżową. Pierwsze co wali w kubki smakowe to ... kwaśność. Na tle większości weizenów, Benediktiner jest bardzo kwaśny. Z kolei mało jest tu typowej słodyczy, nut bananowych czy goździka. W tle jest dość nieprzyjemna goryczka (także wyższa niż u typowego weizena). Być może to piwo ma swoich fanów, ale dla mnie poza tym, że odbiega od stylu to jeszcze jest po prostu kiepskie.

drpimento (3755) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2017
Aroma is mostly caramel malt with only a hint of traditional German Bavarian Weis characteristics. Appearance is more like a regular good all malt beer with a nice head not like what you'd see with the German Bavarian Weiss beer. Flavor is a little better and does bring out those traditional characteristics some. It's an okay Weiss beer.
