UPDATED: SEP 18, 2007 Bottiglia da 50cl comprata all’Unes di Arquata Scrivia: colore oro carico torbidissimo, schiuma abbondante; now THAT is the proper appearance of a German hefeweizen. Ora parlo di nuovo in italiano; aroma pronunziato di banana, lievito e un poco di pepato; sapore pieno molto dolce ma curiosamente abbastanza bilanciato non dal luppolo ma dall’acido del lievito, signore del gusto di questa romantica hefe. Corpo piacevolmente dissetante e rinfrescante, ma non troppo acquoso. Proprio buona, insomma; tra le supermercatose una delle preferite.______________ENGLISH TEXT HERE______________50cl bottle bought at the Unes supermarket in Arquata Scrivia: color is deep cloudy gold, huge head; now THAT is the proper appearance of a German hefeweizen. Aroma is tasty bananas, yeast and a little pepper; flavor is full and very sweet but well balanced by the sourness of the yeast more than by the bitterness of the hops. Yeasts rule this romantic hefe. Body is refreshing, but not too watery; very good, one of the supermarket weizens I prefer. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

500ml bottle, pours a cloudy golden straw color, aroma of yeast, banana, bread, citrus, taste is about the same, some lemon. the finish is off though, something about it doesn’t make it appealing. sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2007
50 cl bottle poured into my cool-as-hell Paulaner Weizen glass. Cloudy amber/orange color with a billowy moussy head. Aromas of banana, hay, bread, pear, citrus and dusty hops. Basic flavor of off- sweet quickbread malts with some lemony tartness throughout, as well as some grassy hops. However, the overall underlying flavor seems old and stale, with some salty/brothy vegemite notes coming through. Very disappointing. Could be an old bottle maybe. wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2008 Hazy peach hue under a tall crown of white cream. Candied bananas are countered by muted clove and black pepper; on the other side, slightly sulphurous with an almost lactic tang. Initially sweet and sour, building lemon acidity, then a wet and tangy finish full of oily citrus zest. Dull, muted, feeling in the mouth with a chalky texture and fat carbonation on a lighter body.

Falls a bit short by lacking the big nose, bright flavours and refreshing mouthfeel that makes weißbier such fun.
50 cl bottle, best before 04 January 2009.
Hazy yellow-orange body with a huge, creamy white head. There’s a bit of the requisite bananas and cloves in the aroma, but there’s also a lot of...egg? Not in an entirely disgusting sulphurous way, just...like egg noodles, or a bread made with lots of eggs. So yeah, so some bread as well. And that’s really pretty much it for the aroma, pathetic. The flavour betrays an egg-based protein shake flavour that’s not completely pleasant. There’s a light acidity throughout, but nothing quenching or refreshing. The finish holds on to that eggy flavour for far too long. Light to medium bodied with a very watery texture and massive carbonation. Just...entirely not what a hefe should be, or any beer for that matter. 50cl can, Duvel tulip, bbe 09/07/08.
500 ml bottle. Pours cloudy orange – gold with a nice white head. Aroma is banana and bubblegum and yeast. Flavor is fairly strong tropical fruit and wheat. Yeasty and tingly from soda-like carbonation. Drys out on the finish. Tart citrus and heavy malts balance well. A very good hefe. Refresing and enjoyable.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2007 8-13-07, no date on bottle. Clear dark golden yellow, huge white head, tiny carb bubbles. Head lasts the whole beer, would give a 5 if there was some sort of cloudiness. Huge yeasty ester aroma. Banana and caramel? Flavor confirms the caramel. Banana and muddied spice in the flavor, can’t pinpoint. Hints of citrus near the finish. Oddly enough seems a bit undercarbonated on the palate. Few tweaks here and there and this is a really nice beer. Hansen (8595) - Assentoft, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2007
Dark orange color. Unclear. Has a big, white head, mostly lasting. Aroma is sweet, with notes of fruit and coriander. Flavor is real nice, fresh fruit, apple, pear. Bitter finish. redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2007
mini-keg. Feint banana aroma with some citrus and an overall cereal scent. Pours cloudy orange-gold color with a huge white head. Mild banana flavor, some citrus, hints of spice in the back, finishes dry. Its lacking a little of what i like in hefeweizen. Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2007
6/30/07 On draught at the Seattle International Beerfest. Aroma is a wide malt blend of sweetness, wheat and sourness. Appearance is a cloudy, wheaty, yellow with a medium white head. Flavor is sweet, wheaty malt with low hop flavor. Mouthfeel is light bodied, crisp, with a clean finish. Overall, a very easy drinking weissbier with no objectionable standouts to complain about.
