ekstedt (6580) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2007
This is my 500th rating, so perhaps I should have picked something more interesting. But it is a hot summer day so it fits quite well. Anyway, the bottle pours clear (but I would not say crystal clear) with a large but short fluffy white head. Hayish malt aroma, with some weak fruity notes of banana and strawberries. Starts a bit sweet and ends with a light bitterness. Dull but refreshing.

This crystal clear, golden weiss bier has a nice head and a discrete wheaty aroma. The flavour is light, and has very little wheat, it’s almost pilsner like, but has a light sweetness and no bitterness. It’s too discrete in every way...

Skinnyviking (9142) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2007
Bottle. Snow white high and lasting head. Clear yellow body. Weak banana aroma. Thin sweet flavor of banana and berries. Man how boring. I prefer clear cold water.

dmradus (227) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Bottle, Haus der 100 Bieres, Berlin. Clear beautiful gold pour, rapidly ascending bubble trails through the liquid and a huge 4-finger, small-bubbled fluff of a head. Nice. Served with a lemon, but smelled of lemon nonetheless when removed. Slight wheat note funk note, as well, and a bit of banana. Taste was very clean, with a slight wheat sourness, a significant lemon citrus presence, and a nice light malt character. Spices were noticeably subdued, nearly nonexistent - considering the style that absence has to be taken into account. Dry finish with a very slight, refreshing after. Characteristically high carbonation. Overall, I like this beer just simply because it is a shape-shifter to my normal sensibilities: a hefeweizen in every way except appearance, this one messes with your mind. Think you’re tucking into a pale lager...nope, just a filtered hefe. Weird, but cool in a way. Better than the sum of its parts.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - MAY 8, 2007
Huge frothy dishwash head that’s really on the way, but gives up in a few minutes disappearing into nothing. Initially there is a huge smell of sweet bananas, but it wears out turning more into orange and mandarin. Looks like a cheap lager. Fruity and full. Some pils-like bitterness detectable. Good carb. Another strong Erdinger.

LinusStick (3300) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2007
Picked this up trying to complete my styles and was not too impressed. The pour was (you guessed it) a clear gold with a huge five finger head. Aroma of wheat but pretty faint. Taste was like a pale lager. Didn’t have that wheat-y banana taste I’ve come to love in hefes. Nothing great but a good lawnmower beer if nothing else

kramer (6313) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2007
500 ml bottle, D’s 6-pack Pittsburgh. Pours a crystal clear very light yellow body under a very nice large foamy white head with good retention. I was very surprised at the head, I suppose I thought that the filtration would have a negative impact on it but it didn’t at all. Nice light crisp wheat aroma, a little bit of fruitiness, and some light vanilla. Very light delicate and crisp flavor. Not alot going on, but I guess that in some way that’s the point. Lightly sweet wheat with a little hay. Mouthfeel is light bodied and thin with spritzy carbonation. Quite refreshing and simple. Nothing wrong with this guy, it does what it came to do. Not a whole lot different from what many breweries pass off as an American Wheat.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Pours golden with huge head that gets in the way, don’t worry it quickly dissipates to nothing. Bit of a bubblegum aroma/flavor to it. Other than that pretty bland. Poor quality kristall.
