One of the best weizen in Germany with unique aroma and taste derived from the Maisels Yeast Bank Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2011
It’s 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. It’s well-balanced, but compared with Maisel Weisse Original, it’s not quite as nice – but truth be told, the difference is very minimal, when you have a glass of each.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Pour golden clouded. Smells like glorious days of weiss gone by. It’s been a while since I indulged in a Hefe Hell, but it’s a happy reacquaintance. Smooth, yet crisp wheat, with plenty of bubblegum. A great Summer beer, not that we’ve actually had a Summer. AmEricanbrew (7080) - 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 (8456) - Nr 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 don’t want to end, and it nearly doesn’t. 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.
