ghawener (1608) - Santa Tecla, - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle: Nice solid hefe weizen, very well crafted and balanced. Full malty / wheat body with not-too-sweet fruity taste. Banana, vanilla, dough. Food Pairing: Weisswurst.

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.

Pours a hazed golden orange with white head. Fruity estery aroma and flavors. Notes: on tap in NYC, Oct '17

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.

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.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Leicht trübes dunkel orange mit sehr schöner feinporiger Schaumdecke. Ohne die üblichen aufdringlichen Hefenoten.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 Barwa pomarańczowa, dość ciemne jak na pszeniczniaka. Biała piana, długo się utrzymuje. Aromat głównie bananów z odrobiną przyprowowości. W smaku również banany. Solidna pszenica.

Had few in a local bar. It has a nice orange color and a nice bittersweet finish.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2017 Una buena cerveza de trigo. No comprendo cuando los europeos dicen plátano o banano en su sabor.

Nice orange color. Has a little bit sour flavour allied with some little bit intense yeast and a little bit of sweet in the end. In the aroma you sense banana and a little bit of yeast. A beer with a light body, nice to drink in the afternoon. Has a thin texture and soft carbonation.
