wheatbeerboy (103) - Addison, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Wow! Fantastic weisse beer. I ’m having a hard time understanding why this beer has been rated as "just average". This beer belongs in the same class with New Glarus, Weihenstephaner, Ayinger and Schneider. If you are a weisse beer kinda’ guy, you gotta’ try this stuff. Very underrated beer in my opinion.

Cloudy yellow-grey. Nose is sweet, banana bread, fruity, booze. Taste is crisp, apple cider, spice, touch of sour. Clean finish. Not terrible, but I think I got an old batch.

floydslip (383) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2016
Cloudy straw colored beer with a thick fizzy bright white head. Nose of hay, lemon, and light clove. Flavor is a bit sweet, but crisp and refreshing with candied orange, lemon peel, and white pepper followed by a mild bitterness that lingers. Good beer for the style.

Leafs93 (2252) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Pours gold with a small white head. Aroma is grain, banana, clove and earthy. Taste is sweet with a very light tartness. Crisp finish, good carbonation and overall a refreshing weiss.

Bottle. On sale at Mariano’s (South Loop). Murky, straw gold pour, smallish head that disappeared quickly. Nose is very faint clove, banana and smells more than a hint like stomach acid. Mouth is medium, lacks the creaminess it should have and also lacks much of what I look for in a Weißbier. I’ll drink it, but I wouldn’t buy this again or recommend it to anyone. Thankfully it was only $2.99

ContemplateBeer (2079) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 21, 2015
500 ml bottled pictured from Keg Liquors; split four way. Aroma: Lemon and lightly tart wheat character without too much in the way of phenols and spices. Appearance: Slightly hazy tinted yellow with a skinny white head that fades into a ring. Flavor: Wheat characteristics still more present up front, but banana finally shows up with some light clove towards the finish, which is mostly dry. Palate: Medium body, slightly sticky texture, very soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Wasn’t originally taken with it very much, but this turned out to be a well nuanced example. Worth a try, especially for lovers of the style.

Saeglopur (2024) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - SEP 14, 2015
500 ml bottle from a supermarket.
Straw colored, hazy body, with a big, unstable, frothy, moderately lacing, white head.
Aroma of banana, vanilla, sweet bread, orange, clove, some dried fruits.
Taste is quite light, with banana, orange, spices, some citrus, vanilla, bread.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with an almost fizzy carbonation.
Finishes spicy, yeasty, fruity, a bit bready, a bit hoppy.

Nice. The nose is really lovely, characterful, while the taste is too light and a bit overcarbonated for me. Overall a good style example, but not among my favourite Hefeweizens from Austria.

500 mL bottle. Pours an unclear yellow, with a small, bubbly, off-white head. The nose is orange peels, banana, lemon, biscuit dough, and some light salt. Sweet and citrusy flavor, with some good yeasty esters. Light body, fairly effervescent, lightly acidic, and smooth. This is a pretty nice hefeweizen. Good yeast character and a refreshing flavor.
