AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle in Zürich. It pours a cloudy, yellowish amber with a big head. The aroma is cereal, banana, oats, and a bit of cloves. Smooth palate with lively carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter and sweet. Very serviceable.

ebone1988 (1932) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - MAR 9, 2017
Aroma is earthy hops, funky, skunked, slight banana, slight clove, metallic. Appearance is amber golden, clear, off white head. Taste is slight banana, slight clove, wheat, slight earthy hop, weird sweetness, it could be skunked. Mouthfeel is light body, light crisp carbonation, slightly fruity and sweet earthy hop aftertaste. Overall, this is a subpar hefeweizen.

Some how this beer is little indifferent. Not every bottle tastes alike. One of the best Swiss made industrial Hefeweizen beers.

I bought this at the drink of the world in Geneva and I drank it quietly at the lake. It is a classical weizen, the body is yellow and troubled, white foam and regular carbonation for the style. The taste is with wheat, banana, cloves. The critic that I could do is a final metalic touch at the tongue but it is an average one, nice during the summer.

DrNosha (2347) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2016
0,5l Bügelflasche. Gelbes leicht trübes Bier mit viel weissem Schaum. Es duftet nach Zitronenschale und grüner Banane. Im Geschmack etwas wässerig. Weizen und Hefe.

50cl bottle from Erzengel, many thanks! Pours murky golden colour with a mid-sized good lasting off-white head. Aroma of banana and yeast. Taste of yeast, bananas, phenols, some clove.

superspak (5606) - Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2015
500 ml bottle into weizen glass, best before 5/27/2015. Pours hazy deep golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big banana, clove, lemon, pear, apple, light bubblegum, wheat, biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, bready malt, and light earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big banana, clove, lemon, pear, apple, light bubblegum, wheat, biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness/yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of banana, clove, lemon, pear, apple, wheat, biscuit, light honey, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. damn nice robustness, complexity, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, bready malt, and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready, and lightly crisp mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is an excellent hefeweizen. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, bready malt, and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Cloudy orange color with nice foam head. Sheath nose. The taste is watery at first and quite wheaty afterwards. Some banana and a solid carbonation. Decent aftertaste.

Erzengel (8769) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2015
Fruchtig-weiziger Antrunk. Sehr viel Nelke, nicht viel Banane. Die Hefe wirkt schwer und unrund. Kaum Herbe spürbar, Hefe, weich, ein Hauch Säure. Sehr mild aber doch etwas schwer trinkbar aufgrund der Aromenkomposition. Interessant, aber irgendwie unrund, dennoch lecker und gut trinkbar.
