Bottle thanks to Dusan & Simona. Clove, sourish, spicy. Slightly flower as well, which expands upon the traditional weizen profile. Good.

WFP jesień 2015. Aromat klasyczny, wygląd przyzwoity, złoty wpadajacy w żółty, niska piana. W smaku bardzo wodniste i bez wyrazu. Nasycenie średnie. Nic rewelacyjnego.

Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet, wheaty, banana and yeasty. Flavor is quite sweet. Sweet finish.

cheese, bread, leather, golden, hazy, light sweetness. Very pleasant wheat smell; homemade banana bread comes to mind. Surprisingly thin given the aroma, but not disturbingly so. A bit too bitter on the back-end, but other than that, it’s remarkably comfortable.

Dull blond with a light haze. Quite average for a weizen. Has a light metallic edge otherwise fairly typical and not worth the price.

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 27, 2015
Cloudy yellow color with relatively fast decaying foam. Wheaty and yeasty smell. The taste is wheaty, yeasty as well as banana heavy. The aftertaste is mild and a little yeasty. A little disappointing but solid.

StueyD (1584) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2015
A bright golden coloured beer with a thick white head. A distinct aroma, wheaty, bready, spicy, especially clove and cinnamon and a mild lime and lemon citrus aroma. Dry and prickly mouthfeel. A dry wheaty taste, biscuity and bready, then the spice elements comes through with cinnamon and clove. This is followed by a light zesty lemon and lime flavour that lasts into a well balanced finished.

12 oz draft pours a hazy yellow color with a small white head. Aromas of wheat, banana, clove. Light bodied, nice summer drinking

maekchu (3953) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Small sweetish wheaty nose, with some peach and light spice. Hazy honey straw color, thin head. Light sweet banana, small citrus, and very gentle but unusual hoping in mid and final. Thin body. Okay. Nose is nice, but flavors are just so mild. Missing the body and bite of a good hefe.

Bottle from Seiyu served in my weizen glass. It pours a soft gold with a pillowy white head. The aroma is sweet spicy wheat featuring cloves blended with coriander. A raspy carbonation on a somewhat thin body means it lacks a chewy malt backbone I’d enjoy. The taste is of a decent weizen: wheat, cloves, coriander, a bit of a bitter fruity finish. Not much fruit character to it but it’s an OK beer. I’d say Hitachino’s White Ale is better though.
