Huge white head. Cloudy orange colour. Fantastic sweet and intense wheat aroma. Excellent fruity taste and a mild palate. Wheat beer at its best.

cmacklin (1273) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 18, 2017
500ml can. (5.6% ABV) Pours a clear yellow-orange with a medium, creamy, short lived, white head that laces. Sweet aroma of wheat malt, banana, cloves and yeast. Sweet flavour of wheat malt, banana, cloves and yeast with a dry finish. Light to medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Not bad.

Aurelius (5489) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2017
Average to poor 500mL tallboy can. Misty, honey gold pour with a snowy white head. Sweet, somewhat stinky aroma with lots of banana ester. Tart, sweet, esteric, olivine. Gets a bit cloying, in the mashed banana department - tastes a little artificial, like a big melted banana popsicle. Lightish body, straw-bitter finish, carbonation retention isn't great. Fair, very average. Part of the Costco Beer Advent Calendar 2017.

tgrtnr (282) - Augsburg, Bavaria, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2017
500 ml bottle. Pours bright cloudy orange, foamy head. Clove, banana, estery notes. Slightly bitter, a bit acidic. Crisp and fresh for a Weißbier. Carbonation as it should be, medium body. Finish is a bit sour. Refreshing Weißbier.

HB in Freising. Beautiful head, aroma is spicy with very minor banana, taste is typical wheat spicy with nice body. A great German style wheat.

Drinked in bottle. At the nose is quite spiced or at least, less full than the other weizen. Hints of cloves and mature banana. In mouth I was personally impressed by freshness and spiciness,very drinkable. low carbonated. A funny and very enjoyable spicy bitterness and a fresh fruitiness before the malted finish. Liked it

From a groupon mystery case of 24. 500ml can stated 5.6% not 5.4%. Wheat beer , pours hazy with an initial creamy head that soon disappears to a thin head. Smooth taste. No hop taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,5 l Flasche aus einem lokalen Getränkemarkt. Mandarinengold, leicht trüb mit schwacher Schaumkrone. In der Nase habe ich eine leicht würzige Note. Im Geschmack süßlich, Banane, Nelken, leicht wässrig

3.7
MartinT (10037) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2017
My Bottom Line:
Banana, cloves and mineral notes thrive within this Weissbier’s prickly mouthfeel, building a textbook rendition of the style.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam sits atop the shiny blond white haze.
-Mouthfeel isn’t as cushy as a Weihenstephan or Friedenfels Weissbier, but it is quite competent nonetheless.
-Drinkability is quite high.
-Carbonation is as high as it is supposed to be.
-Wheat contributes a few doughy subtleties underneath the fermentation character.
