beer4eternity (226) - Tauranga, - NOV 21, 2011
0,5 l from Okere Falls Cafe, NZ; a good discovery with many more beers to sample from there in nice environs. Murky, cloudy, deep straw hue, dense pillowy-foamy white to off-white slowly diminishing head. Looked great in the Aktienbrauerei Kaufbeuren weizen style glass it came in. Delightful spicy (clove mostly), honey on white toast, biscuit, ginger, citrus aromas. Moderately sweet, at least mildly sour taste with a long duration. Medium body; more than I expected, spritzy carbonation, creamy texture, lingering peppery spicy afterglow. Very pleasant on a hot summery afternoon while on holiday.

Bottle from Appellation Wines, Comely Bank, thanks to Ashton McCobb. Pours hazy yellow with a thick white head. Aromas of banana and pineapple. Taste is bready, light spice, more banana. Clean finish.

Bottle from Appellation Wines Comely Bank. Appearance - cloudy yellow brown with a very generous head, as expected from Hefeweizen. Nose - light banana, pineapple and slight funkiness. Taste - dry banana and pineapple. Candied lemon on the finish. A hint of nutmeg. Palate - close to medium bodied. Tangy and creamy through the middle and end sections. Overall - decent example of the style.

Draft at Kaelderkold. Hazy orange with a white head. Aroma of yeast, banana and light fruity notes. Flavour is moderate sweet. Light medium bodied with soft carbonation. [11-07-2016]

ciocanelu (3112) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 15, 2016
On tap. Quite clear golden color for a hefeweizen, white head. Aroma has the typical yeast esters, banana being the most prominent. Taste starts slightly sweet with clean wheat malt and banana. Finish is more balanced but there is also a slight cardboard note. Medium body and carbonation. Not bad but it’s really generic and mediocre.

minutemat (6249) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours hazy gold, medium white head that persists. Aroma is soft banana. Taste is initially murky banana yeast & light cloves that fade with faint metallic and cardboard notes taking their place. Its hefeweizen yeast does stick around but it seems a little tired. Not a great example of the style.

zvsn (2370) - ISRAEL - JUL 31, 2016
On-tap at a biergarten in Schwangau. Pours cloudy yellow with a huge head. Aroma of fruity esters and banana, some spicy and citrus notes. Sweet, fruity, spicy, light tartness. Light-medium bodied, lively carbonation. Decent.

Keg @El Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. 13-07-2015.
Poor weizen, a bit wateery, some cereal nose, citrusy nose, sweet palated.
