Hugi (475) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - MAY 23, 2012
Amber coloured and hazy with a big and stable head. Smell of yeast, clove and a little banana. Yeasty taste, a bit fruity, again clove and a bit of banana. Slightly malty, low bitterness, full body and fizzy.

Bügelverschlußflasche (kindly donated by Quack-Duck!): Deep golden, hazy, big and stable creamy white head, bubble-gum and raspberries in thesweetish-wheaty nose; moderate sweet-sourish flavour, very soft ad creamy, pretty slim; slightly increasing - but still mild - bitterness in the sweetish-fruity finish. A nice Weizen......

MoritzF (10199) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 30, 2012
(swing top bottle, courtesy of Quack-Duck) Cloudy, golden colour with a blond and huge foamy head. Yeasty, slightly dusty wheat-malty aroma with shy notes of banana and strong phenolic spicy notes. Moderately sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation for a Hefeweizen. Wheaty and moderately banana-fruity taste with clovy notes showing up quite early and lingering into the mildly sweet finish. A tad to spicy for my liking. 04.IV.12

jaghana (6363) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 25, 2011
Bottle 33cl, a cloudy golden-orange beer with huge creamy head. Nose is intense on banana, pineapple and fresh bread. Aroma is malty / weizen but dry with almond notes, finish is short and grainy, less complex as expected, interesting aroma but body is a bit watery.

MartinT (10155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2011
My Bottom Line :
This cohesive Weizen showcases bananas, cloves and wheat bread until an earthy, herbal bitterness dries up the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A creamy veil of foam laces all around the cloudy orangey blond.
-Apple skin allusions add depth.
-A quenching tartness makes the beer even more drinkable.
-The frothy effervescence and relative dryness make this feel lighter than your average Weizen.
-Some minerals appear in the finish.

0.33L swing-top bottle - labeled Kleiner Löwe since it’s a smaller bottle). Banana, peach, clove, and wheat malt. Cloudy amber color with giant white head. Sweet banana, orange, light clove and wheat malt flavor. Body a bit watery. Not bad - a bit light.

MiP (16055) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2010
Bottle, 5.0%. Bubble gum aroma. Cloudy yellow colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is a bit sweet with some bubble gum. Not sugary. Some wheat mouthfeel and a little sourish graininess in the finish.
