Embrouille (2853) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 17, 2009
Bottled 33cl. Appearance: Hazy orange. Average sized head. Some lacework. Aroma: Glue, overripe banana, vanilla and tobacco. Flavor and palate: Slightly sour. Hints of dried apricots, banana, herbs, vanilla and dust. Not much carbonation. Light bodied. Overall impression: Very interesting and atypical. decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Aroma of vanilla and wheat. Slightly hazed gold pour. Vanilla and a very light bitter. Good carbonation light and slightly watery. Pretty good but not much like a hefe? djd07 (14533) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy copper golden color with a medium frothy white head that lasts awhile. The aroma is banana, clove, wheat, and dry yeast. Good sticky lacing on the glass. The taste is a watery wheat malt with banana and a dry finish. A decent hefe from Flensburger. fritzwolfgang (1) - , Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2009 does not count
Typical Weitzen taste. Love the pop bottle.
Have not tried to drink it non-chilled yet.
This weizen beer is really an Excellent Imported Value. mikeben (355) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2009
I like the bottle cool cork contraption. The beer has a nice haze, clean smell and taste. Not overly flavorful but a solid hefe.

Thanks to decaturstevo for sharing this at his 2008 Zapit Tasing Tasting.
Pours clear light gold with a small white head.
Faint malt aroma little or no other esters.
Just not much here to talk about. SHIG (4962) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 19, 2008
Bottle swing-top: Poured an orange with fluffy cream head. Metallic, banana, and citrus aroma. Taste is a dirty veggie. BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Bottle shared by decaturstevo. Poured a slightly hazy pale with a creamy white head that left good lace. Wheat aroma with a light apple and honey backing. The flavor has the wheat and spice expected of a hefe but also some honey and other light malts in the background. Light body. Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - DEC 13, 2008
Bottle, just like in the picture. Pours burnt orange with a tight bubbled white head into a Brooklyn wheat glass. The aroma is almost all bubblegum with just some wheat to balance it out a little. The flavor starts out with smooth banana and vanilla along with the mellowest of spicy hops. A really interesting and unique weizen that finishes dry. 17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Pours a clear darker golden with some larger soda bubbles and a large thick creamy off-white head. Zesty sweet ripe banana aroma with notes of butter yeast and hay/pumpkin seeds. Whoa... a bit different in taste. These descriptors are pretty right on, paper, toffee, cashews and candied ripe banana. Finishes dry with with some chalky alcohol bitterness and light bubble-gum. Weak watery palate that still manages to leave a sugary feeling in the mouth, lightly gritty with softer large bubble carbonation .
