Murky yellow orange pour. A little something missing off the taste. A bit sweet, some citrus, lemons and oats. Rated 2/19/03 ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - DEC 9, 2009
12oz bottle (variety pack). Poured a hazy golden color topped by a dense, creamy white head. The aroma is strong bready yeast and banana, with hops and a touch of cloves. The taste is light and fruity with a touch of yeast. Very well done with a light zesty finish leaving the lightest hint of bitterness. yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - AUG 4, 2009
DeGroen’s Weizen is one of the better weissbiers that come close to the imported offerings of Paulaner, Hacker-Pschorr, etc.
Very cloudy with deep yellow-orange hue. Contrasting white head rounds out the pleasing appearance of this beer.
Nose is exceptionally fruity with the standard estery, bananna citrus components. Medium bodied. A full flavored weizen with no discernible imperfections. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 29, 2009
Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Smells of cloves, bananas, sweet malt. Tastes tarte with some weird rubbery hints on the finish. DalzAle (2038) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 29, 2009
Bottle. Poured a nice hazy orange color with yeasty orange aroma and a little carbonation. Flavor was a little funky, and not in a good way. Overly sweet malts and had an eggy aftertaste?? I’m guessing I just got an off bottle. Would give it another chance if I could try it on tap

12 oz bottle-poured a cloudy orange color w/no head. Had no carbonation at all. This is a bad bottle; flat, no head, no flavor. I debated weather or not to rate it, but since I just bought it @ Shawan & it had no date of any kind on the bottle to alert me to a problem, I really didn’t feel too guilty about it. Be wary of this one if you see it there-or elsewhere. It has only had 5 ratings in the last 2 years; these bottles must be very old! ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JUL 2, 2007
Cloudy, pale body with a small, white head. Nose if dead on to style with banana and light clove and some dough. The flavor is light banana, light clove, bread and a touch of honey, fairly dry. Medium/light body is very soft with light carbonation, just a bit thin on the finish. Very quaffable. Well done. jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2007
From a 12 oz. bottle, no freshness date, a blurb on the back label, sampled at cellar temperature in a weizen glass.
Poured a slightly hazy, reddish golden orange with a foamy white head, decent retention, minimal amount of sticking.
Aromas of banana and clove, fruity, spicy and wheat malty.
Good, steady medium carbonation and a malty crisp, dryish, creamy smooth medium bodied mouthfeel.
For an American brew, a nice hefeweizen taste, the required banana and cloves, a good fruity, malty twang, lemon and spice, a soft hop bitterness towards the end and a dry yeasty, malty finish.
A surprise, very enjoyable, easy, smooth drinkability, if you like hefe’s and don’t think Americans can do a decent one, then you need to try this. This is decent one, not a great one, but did the trick for me.
