COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wheat beer is for many people an invitation to the world of top fermented beers. Our weizen invitation has original gravity of 11 Plato and is constituted from 60 % of wheat malt. We do our hopping only using the Saaz noble hops. According to the German original is Lucky Bastard Weizen less hoppy and more malty. And as a decent wheat beer should be, even our beer has the banana and clove aroma. The sensitive may even discover some vanilla in it. We don’t have to add bananas or clove to our kettle, they appear in the beer by themselves thanks to the yeast strain we use. Weizen is designed as a smooth drinkable beer, which you can have a few of and you won’t be physically or socially tired so you can live beer just fine.

Aroma: cloves, coriander, sour notes, maybe barn.
Appearance: hazy straw color, huge white head.
Taste: low bitterness, sour, nice coriander notes, quite dry and refreshing.
Palate: low body and high carbonation, sour finish.
Overall: Quite interesting witbier :). There is nothing common with any German weizen.

Bottle. Pours Light hazy Yellow with a White head. As others have said, this isn’t like a Geman hefe at all. Sourish wheat and more hop character than you’d usually expect. There’s pleanty of yeasty banana flavour but as stated previously, the body is lighter and more like a Wit. Reminiscent of Primators award winning Weizen. I quite enjoyed it.

Definitely one of the best Weizen I had so far in my life. The trick is that is in no way a german hefe but more of belgian wit with lots of sourness, some coriander and herbs. Wonderfully balanced and highly drinkable. Thank you Imrich !

McTapps (6976) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle from Cuso - many thanks! The Weizen pours out in a beautiful light yellow-golden colour with airy head and crisp body. Aroma of berries and wheat. Taste of wheat, hops, grass, citrus, acid, nuts, green berries and straw. Sour-quaffable finish. Far better than any German Hefeweizen ever can get.

Gurthnar (6249) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 27, 2014
Bottle. Aroma clove, banana. Hazy light peach colour, reminiscent of ciders. Nice soft white head. Taste is spicy clove right from beginning. Light hops distinguishable, which may annoy some, but I would say they managed to achieve quite good balance. Body is a bit thin. Finish is quite dry. Quite nice weizen with interesting twist.

Cuso (8943) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 21, 2014
Bottle from distributor. hazy orange golden color with huge long lasting head. Strong wheaty, yeasty aroma with lime, clove. Taste, wheat, banana, yeast, hints of red berries(?), lime, vanilla, clove. Refreshing, not very typical Weizen.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2014 10.10.2014: (7/4/7/3/14) From 0,33l bottle, BBD: 24.10.2014 Pours nice hazy straw golden liquid, medium white creamy head, Aroma: dominant citrus, banana, better, than last time, but too citrus (perhaps even lime) for me, Taste: medium sweet, light bitter, medium to heavy sour, citrus, lime, light banana, some clove, Palate: light to medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, long sour finish, Overall: too acid, but on the good way from last time. Need more improvements. p.s. not sure about the acidity, if it was like that from beginning or due to storage?

17.4.2014: (7/3/7/3/14) From 0,75l bottle to original Erdinger weissbier glass :) BBD: 12.05.2014 Pours hazy straw yellow liquid (tend to slight green) with medium white frothy head. Aroma: wheat malt, Riesling (white) wine, sweat tones, slight banana, slight vanilla. Aroma is not very intensive, but is quiet original Taste: light to medium sweet, light bitter, light sour, very light beer, easy drinking, wheat malt, Riesling wine, banana. Palate: light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, medium long wine sour finish with bitter notes. Overall: quiet good weissbier, white wine notes, light body, light sour aftertaste, refreshing, very drinkable, but not very intensive in aroma. It is the exact counterpart of the Riesling wine. Ideal for hot summer evenings in garden, would pair with some endive (chicory) - cheese - walnut - balsamique vinaigrette salad.

Glass bottle. Stored in the fridge for one week after purchase. Poured into an Erdinger weißbier glass. Overall an untypical yet tasty weizen. Aroma is of banana, bread, some spices and a bit of hops, but the hops seems to be too much. Color is hazy light green to golden. Thick stable soapy head. Medium carbonation. Taste is a blend of a Primator weizen and Edelweiss Weißbier with a sidedish of white wine ending with a bit sour hoppy finish. I am no wine drinker so the white wine marginal flavor disturbs me. Otherwise it would had gotten a higher rating fro me. Quite drinkable.
