josanguapo (1549) - SPAIN - OCT 22, 2016
From Hipercor. In Teku glass. At lunch, with rice soup + croquettes. Another tart brew from Far West. There is nothing of a hefe here. Its shameful to sell so much beers,all Ive tasted from them is in that way

Boutip (6269) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2016
Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of light wheat malt with some tart notes is OK. Taste is mostly dominated by tart and lemony notes with light wheat malt also perceptible. Body is about average with some good carbonation. This beer tasted like it was infected and not sure the infection is voluntary.

Paladares (226) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 11, 2015
Botella. Dorada totalmente turbia y muy poca espuma. Aroma bastante extrao. Viene algo de albaricoque pero con toque ctrico. Noto algn aroma negativo pero no logro descifrar qu es. En boca se acenta ese punto negativo, que ahora s, lo aprecio como agrio. No me convence.

Ambar clara. Turbia con algo de sedimento. Aroma cereal y tambin alg frutal, higo. Buen tono en boca, con carbonatacion notable y cuerpo medio y sabor bastante lupulado, citrico y tambien algo floral, miel, predominantemente dulce. Final mas seco. Buena.

Bullit (4565) - Burgos, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle from Hipercor. This doesnt appear to be a Hefeweizen at all; otherwise very poorly executed. Slightly hazy golden colour, thin off-white head. Nose is soft malty, slightly sweet, with a bit of citrus. Flavour is malty, bit of caramel, slightly yeasty. Very light hopped. A bit grassy. Oily texture, medium carbonation. Mediocre.

rosenbergh (11435) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 14, 2014
330 ml bottle. BB 03/Jun/2014.(Carrefour) Almera, Spain.
Hazy orange colour with a small white head. Yeast, mild sourness and some fruitiness in the aroma. The flavour is mild bitterness, yeast and some sourness. A bit messy. Like its not quite ready yet...

D_and_D (6) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2013 does not count
Aroma: Citrus and yeast no head so no real apparent aroma Appearance:cloudy, no head or lacing Taste: carbonation is medimum but crisp. Belgum/French sasson spicy yeast flavor. little malt and no hop characteristics.It is definately a good change to overabundance of mass produced beers in southern Spain. Purchased at Lamarca in Almera (Paseo). The style stated at the time of this review is hefeweizen, it is not. It should be recategorized..

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2013
[email protected] Strong cardboard aroma with a hint of citrus. Cloudy, tiny off-white head, no lace. Sweetish, cardboard, citrus, cardboard, increasing towards the finish, no bitterness, medium body. Horrible brewing mistakes.
