750ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Topped by a wire cradle and a cork. Cloudy, yellow-gold body. Slowly diminishing, soapy white head. Smell of bittersweet fruits mixed with spices and wheat. Citric fruity taste, lemon and leafy hops in flavour plus discreet notes of yeasty fruitiness. Fresh and dry on the swallow. Alright, but it did not carry enough interest for me to empty the whole bottle (hotel room, Oslo 07.08.2010). Sigmund (7832) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2010
750 ml corked and wired bottle, from Vinmonopolet Valkendorfsgate (spesialutvalget), Bergen. ABV is 5.1%, EBU is 19.4. Bittering hop Sladek, aroma hop Saaz. OG 1048, FG 1010. Pale golden colour, huge and lasting white head. The aroma is more spicy and less fruity than most German style wheats. Cloves galore, maybe coriander too? Hints of leather. Light bodied and refreshing. The flavour is dry, yeasty and spicy, maybe a hint of citrus and banana when you search for it, but less pronounced than in most hefeweizens. Very moderate hops in the finish. Nice enough. Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 20, 2010
from Erzbierschof - hazy bronze colour with a little white foam left; the aroma is estery with strong corny notes; moderate malt body and carbonation; some late tart acidity; quite dry, estery finish with notes of pear, apples and corn pivnizub (10768) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2010
Bouteille: Golden with an orangey sheen, smaller - but stable and lacy - white head; wheaty-fruity nose with a dryish hop profile underneath; moderate bitter-sweet flavour with a light acidity, soft and medium bodied; sweet fruity (+ wheaty) and bitter-hoppy finish, lingering aromatic hops in the aftertaste. Very interesting combination of wheat and hops..... MoritzF (10068) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2010
(bottle, 75cl) Cloudy, orange-golden colour with a blonde medium-sized foamy head. Moderately sweet malty and wheaty aroma with notes of apricots, banana and citric and slightly herbal-spicy aroma hops. Mildly sweet and slightly acidic flavour, quite light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Malty and moderately wheaty taste with rounded notes of fruity noble hops, lingering into the moderately dry and fruity wheaty finish. Pretty pleasant Hefeweizen, reminds me a bit of Schneiders Wiesen Weisse. 11.VIII.10

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika, modestly priced.
Apricots and a little sourness in the aroma, fruity body, lovely sour finish. Fine summer beer, tasty yet light. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 8, 2010
Bottle from Bierkoning. Light orange body with medium head. Nose of bananas and wheat. But not enough bananas and too much wheat. Fruity light taste with some bananas in middle and spicy finish. Not really my thing. Quite clean but quite bland too. OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2010
0.75 L corked and wired bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. A big airy snowy white head upon a foggy yellow golden body. Fresh fruit aroma. Faint banana and oranges, or maybe orange marmelade. Also a whiff of lactic acids. Medium to light wheaty malt body. Fairly crisp, fairly dry. Notes of spices and fruity hops. Light to medium light body strengt. Fruity, hoppy and light spicy endnotes. Not true to the type. But goes well down and has good quenching abilities. larsga (7630) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2010
Huge slightly coarse offwhite head. Opaque hazy yellow body. Fruity bananaish wheat aroma with mealy herbal floral notes. Very clean and fresh. Dry, very very faintly acidic, fruity banana and wheat taste with herbal notes. Thinnish body. Fizzy mouthfeel. Dry-bitter herbal grassy aftertaste with mealy notes. Not a whole lot going on here, except possibly a light infection. (0.75l bottle, Vika wine monopoly, Oslo. Bottled 2010-03-31.) Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 13, 2010
Sampled at Erzbiershof’s Versuchungen Vol. 1. The nose is decent without offering any memorable inviting components. Light bodied. Glue and banana throughout. Not too much character. A bit boring and dissapointing.
