ArtyPraha (22) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 12, 2016
One of the best weizen in Germany with unique aroma and taste derived from the Maisels Yeast Bank

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2011
Its unclear yellow-golden with a huge, creamy head, and the aroma has notes of yeast, banana, wheat and a little banana peel. The flavour is sweet with balanced yeasty notes, banana, wheat, and the finish is spicy. Its well-balanced, but compared with Maisel Weisse Original, its not quite as nice but truth be told, the difference is very minimal, when you have a glass of each.

DanielBrown (4408) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2012
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Pour golden clouded. Smells like glorious days of weiss gone by. Its been a while since I indulged in a Hefe Hell, but its a happy reacquaintance. Smooth, yet crisp wheat, with plenty of bubblegum. A great Summer beer, not that weve actually had a Summer.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 11, 2011
Murky golden color/ lasting beige sheen. Sharp spicy clove, tart wheat citrus, fresh baked banana bread aromas. smooth, light bodied mouthfeel. Very nice lightly sweet pale malt, fruity banana flavors with spicy clove, black pepper, and a light wheat tartness- very good hefe

DruncanVeasey (8060) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2008 Bottled. Deep apricot-orange haze. Sour, metallic, vinous nose with a hint of bubblegum, becoming maltier as it warms. Milky palate. Suberb head retention and lacework aplenty. Opens sourly, with some faintly banana-ish fruit, develops a parting bitterness worthy of a distinguished (malty) Pilsener, and sticks around with an aromatic gust of wheaty biscuit. WHAT an aftertaste. One of those beers you just dont want to end, and it nearly doesnt. A virtually faultless expression of the style. (Re-rate, 24/05/08- previously 8/5/8/5/16). Unjuicy toffe-apple aroma with a peppering of clove. Hysterically, dissolving-aspirin spritzy. Malty, yeasty and a touch metallic in the mouth with gentle peppery spice, slight dryness, grain, watery banana. Tasty, but unworthy of 3rd position in my ratings, and not the world-beating weiss I once thought.

Bottle at Holbk Bibliotek. Light hazy, golden amber with a large white head. Aroma moderate malty (banana) and yeasty. Flavor moderate sweet and acidic. Light body. Really fine. Thanks Carsten Bertelsen.

hirigalzkar (3020) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2010
Nice orange color with a big white head. Sweet banana and orange dominates this thirst quenching brew. Small sourness in the end. Yeasty character of "bulldeg".Not the most complex Hefe, but a great thirst quencher.
