Reminds me more of a belgian witbier, but is labelled and marketed as a hefeweizen, so ok. It’s hazy and golden in colour with a nice white foam. Citrusy notes over a slight banana yeasty flavor. Excellent!

Curry-Ya, NYC bottle: pours hazy brownish yellow with a white head. Aroma is light fruitiness and yeast... not quite banana and clove like a real one. Taste is somewhat spicy... a weird taste of the booze. Very light. Not super interesting.

Absolutely phenomenal beer. Subtle flavours, light yet immensely satisfying. Easily the best wheat beer ever tasted. If you see it, buy it.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a light head. Taste is light watery and bland . Nothing special

Poured a cloudy yellow with white head. Smell is of wheat. A average Hefewizen nothing really stands out about it. If I were out to Sushi again I would order it, but I would not go out of my way for it.

$11?!??! Doh! Wheat beer disguised as a bland cheap American lager. Grainy nose with lots of corn and some floral and honey notes. Light body with a little texture at the end. Grainy lagery blandness with some honey and honeysuckle. Drinks easy

330 ml bottle bought at Sogo Fresh Mart in Causeway Bay.

Cloudy hazy light golden colour with layer of yeast sediments; Half finger head with crumpety white foam with fades in 40 seconds; Good sticky lacing and near zero carbonation; Quite pungent smell of lager malt, with smelly floral, light caramel, bread, strong yeast, light lemon and grass; Near zero sweet taste of lager malt, with very light caramel, faint wheaty tartness, strong bread, strong yeast, thin lemon, shades of bitter hops and thin grass; Mid to light body. Quite thick palate; Mouth feel is slightly-thinned, straight-up Pale Lager or a low-hopped Pilsener. Wheat is low, in the body but very thin tartness. The yeast is lager yeast, so there’s no fruity esters, vanilla, cloves or spices whatsoever, just some hints of caramel and the rest is gooey stale thick bread. Doh!... Hoppiness is smelly floral, light lemon and grass nose, minimal hop taste. Bitterness is backgroung astringency, lager-style, for a lasting, not-too-pleasant, very low bitter finish; Quite dry after taste, quite easy to mouth.

Comments: How dare the brewer called this a Weizen! This is just a Pale Lager what bits of wheat being thrown in. No fruity aroma or taste, just plain and lowly bready malt all over. At least Erdinger Champs has some tartness and orange taste for good measure. If you want a proper Hefeweiss, then please stay away from this expensive drain pours!

Hazy yellow color, small to moderate head, some lace/retention. Aroma is very light - pale malts, touch of wheat, light banana/citrus. Reminds me a lot of a pale lager with some wheat characteristics. Lighter bodied. Also, the bottle itself is really heavy relative to most 12 oz bottles. Probably the most interesting thing about this.

12 ounce bottle from Uwajimaya. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. A light bready nose with some pepper. A bit of faint skunk, lemon, dough, some yeasty spiciness. OK.

shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle. Very pale watery yellow colour with small white head. Aroma is quite faint, not much there, but equally nothing objectionable. Slight graininess and bit of citrus. Taste is similar. There is a hint of flavour but it fades quite quickly. Slight sweetness, bit of citrus and a little bit creamy. Fades into a kind of lemonade taste. Nothing nasty about it, in fact nothing much about it at all. Medium carbonation makes it a little bit spritzy but otherwise quite thin.
