Very pale beige, opaque; very wheaty palate, lots of grapefruit, low phenols for the style; light body, sour, grapefruity finish. Different, and may not be to everyone's taste, but I enjoyed its simple, citric, thirst-quenching properties. chrisv10 (18498) - DENMARK - OCT 10, 2010

Deep hazy orange color, small off-white head. Yeasty aroma with banana and cardboard, light lemony and clove spicey note. Crisp carbonation. Quite sweet flavor. Banana, orange, yeast. Low bitterness. This is very close to German hefeweizens, usually American versions differ a lot. This doesn’t.
Unfiltered cloudy orange lemon pour. Lots of lemongrass in this one. Rated 8/25/02 yngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2007
Bottle, courtesy of Papsoe. Hazy, yellowish body with a white head on top. Dryish, dusty, slighlty sour on the nose. Quite fruity and citrusy flavor with a sour touch and a dry, dusty, medium full mouthfeel. A strange wheat beer that is drinkable indeed, but far from a traditional German-style hefe. (071005)

Pale hazy yellow, tiny head. Sweet banana aroma. Sharp carbonation. Not quite up to german standards, but pretty refreshing, sweet and fruity.
I thought maybe Flying Dog could do the trick of making a good weizen that I could honestly enjoy! Too bad. Again a brewer failed to make it to the other side in my opinion. Just another weizen, I just don’t smell or taste anything new. Always malty, wheat, grains and a dull boring taste. brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 4, 2011
A: The pour is a fairly clear golden orange color with a rather small white head.
S: Lots of clove and spice notes along with a ton of cardboard. Some sweet bread and wheat malt notes and a fair amount of banana and bubblegum. A bit of stale orange peel in the background.
T: Sort of bland with some clove and banana flavor. Sweet bread and wheat flavors with a hint of bubblegum on the finish. Citrus peel and yeast are also present.
M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: Tastes okay, but it’s not something I would come back to. Dedollewaitor (16387) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2008
Bottle. Hazy deep orange with a small white foam. Wheat & orange peel. Sweet taste with dominant banana notes. Medium body & carbonation. On the sweet side. Drinkable but nothing speciel! MiP (15973) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2008
Draught at EBF08. Cloudy dark orange colour. Slightly sweet spicy aroma and flavour. Mild and wheaty. Refreshing, but not too interesting.
