UPDATED: SEP 4, 2017 Bottle @ Kumpel Erich, Dortmund. Pours hazy amber with a big frothy head. The aroma features strong sweetish maltiness, ripe fruitiness and pine hoppiness; almost like in a double IPA. Taste is light sweet initially, later light to medium bitter. Flavours emphazise the hoppy side of this hybrid: caramel, citrus fruits and a touch of pine. Some wheatiness appears in the background. The palate is medium-bodied, average in carbonation, smooth in texture. Very good. StilleStorm (1558) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2017

The beer looks very nice. I like it. The color of the beer is a nice peach coloured orange. The beer has a lovely silky appearance, due tot he cloudiness. On top of the beer a nice soft layer of white foam is formed, with a tiny orange touch. It is not 100% white.
The smell of the beer is nice. It is indeed a blend between German Weizener with IPA. I smell some nice sweet and delicate malts, together with lovely citrus hops. The hops give aromas of citrus fruits, with a focus on lime and also zest. This pairs lovely with the banana and slightly coriander and spicy yeast aromas of the wheat ale. There also is a doughy touch. Quite nice.
The taste is a bit less. The malts aren’t really clear. The hops are a bit more bitter and also have a resinous touch. The citrus is also there, but the resinous aspects cover the fruity touches a bit. There are some yeast flavours, mainly spicy with touches of clove. It is nice, but the smell was nice. The aromas were more in balance than the flavours are.
The palate of the beer is nice. Nice medium body, slightly sticky and high carbonation. The finish is rather short. There are some malty flavours and some nice hoppy fruits there. But, it could have been a bit longer. All in all, not a bad beer, actually quite nice and a nice blend between to beer styles. I like it. blankboy (7735) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2017
[Draught at beerbistro] Pours a hazy orange with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Aroma of wheat, bready malt, caramel and fruit. Flavour is bready and fruity along with some light hops. Average bodied. Good, not great. hauxe (860) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - APR 12, 2017
Pours dirty amber from the bottle. An off-white, frothy finger thick head forms, lingering in reduced form for much of the duration. Aroma is banana with a light tropical fruit tinge. Or perhaps just citrus. Overall the aroma is restrained and hard to accurately place. This may be a cross between a Weizen and an IPA, but the bitter citric hop notes of the latter style win the taste battle, pushing the sweet banana notes into the background. The bitterness strengthens going into the finish, turns a bit raw, and ends with a light acidity. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Overall, not bad but there’s nothing that stands out and makes me what to drink another of these. Would like to have seen a richer, more flavorful bittersweet balance.
