Danish: Carls Hvede henter sin inspiration i de bayerske hvedeøl, der fra 1960erne og frem fik en kæmpe renæssance i Tyskland. Øllet er orangegyldent og uklart med en stor livlighed, og har en ganske kraftig frugtagtig aroma med noter af banan, nelliker, skovsyre og koriander. Smagen byder på en stor maltsødme samt en lille bitterhed.

(Draught at Rosie McGee’s, Copenhagen, 25 Jan 2013) Hazy brownish yellow colour, with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of wheat, bread and dried fruit. Fruity, malty taste with slightly sourish wheat, dried fruit, bread and a slightly spicy finish with low bitterness. Medium body, with quite rounded mouthfeel. A certain sweetness. Drinkable, but not too impressive.

Not the strongest hefe. Golden with a slick mouthfeel. Wheaty and sweet. Banana and clove are pretty muted. Tried in Grasten with Anne and her family for the first time in 2007.

Mainstream all over this beer experience. No need for a "special" serie, i you don´t make a "more" special. This one promise more in the nose, that you get on the tounge.

farven er uklar orangegul med en hvid skumkrone. Aromaen er banan og nelliker medens smagen er banan, kløver og hvede. En nogenlunde hvedeøl. Men heller ikke mere.

A fairly decent attempt at a German hefeweizen. It has pleasant gentle citrus aroma, delightful taste of the wheat malts freshness reminiscent of newly harvested grain and a little taste of ripe banana. Of course, not as good as the genuine Bavarian hefeweizen, but it is not so bad.

What a great beer. The taste of banana is overwhelming. I could get drunk on this one. :)

On tap at random café. Hazy, light amber colour with a medium sized white head. Light fruity aroma with wheat, some cereals and a hint of caramel malts. Light sweet taste. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Short finish with wheat and hints of clove. Rather ordinary, almost boring, but still drinkable weizen.

Cunningham (8530) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2012
Light hazy yellow colour with a white head. Wheat, light banana and light caramel malt aroma. Light wheat flavour with a moderate caramel background. Faint banana maybee probably.
[Can from bordershop in Puttgraden, Germany]

Fadtappet Carls Hvede på Hvide Lam (gjerne med en Gammel Dansk ved siden) er et fast innslag på programmet for enhver Københavntur. Synes dette er Carlsbergs beste øl, men det har kanskje noe med atmosfæren på Hvide Lam å gjøre? Har aldri prøvd den fra flaske/boks.

Palme (4861) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2012
On tap @ a random Copenhagen pub(did not get the name). This is a near clear golden one with a nice dense just off-white head. Not to much wheat on the aroma, I get apples and some mild acidity. Almost like a cider?. Near no wheat in the flavor either. It actually reminds me much of a normal carlsberg - just a bit sweeter, cloudier and added some yeasty banana. Have even I gotten the right beer? I don’t know, but this was not a good wheat. 10.05.2012
