Fatehunter (2641) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Looks great with two fingers of head on a darker straw colored body, a few bubbles are visible. The aroma is nice: grain and hay. The taste is fairly malty with a moderate bitterness. A bit different for the style, but good. The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation. Enjoyable, but not a traditional hefeweizen.

Hefeweizen "originale" de 5,2 % abv. Mon exemplaire était à 5 mois avant date. Couleur ambré un peu orangé, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines, partout, vives. Mousse blanc cassé, épaisse, à fins flocons, cratères en haut, stable à 3 mm. Arômes de malt clair, pils, blé, houblons nobles. 1ère bouche souple, fortement sur le blé, un peu "blanche". Arrière-bouche agréable, mais très light. 2ème aux belles saveurs de blé, pointe citronnée. Arrière-bouche vraiment très aqueuse. La suite n'apporte rien d'autre, elle est linéaire. Jambes huileuses, longues. Levure douce, fine, ligne correcte. Alcool très faible, il ne peut rien .. Finale basique. CONCLUSION : rien à retenir de pareille bière, trop légère pour donner un quelconque impact gustatif. (3/3/2/2/4)

(0,5l Flasche) Bernstein-trüb im Glas mit kräftiger, cremiger Schaumkrone. Solides Weizen mit der typischen bananig-aprikosigen Aromatik. Süßer, eher leichter Antrunk und sehr dezenter Säure im Abgang.

Lekkere weissen met in de afdronk iets bijzonders wat geen fabrieksmatige weissen heeft. Maisels's weissen stopt er geen conserveringesmiddelen in zoals de grote producenten waardoor het maar 6 a 7 maanden houdbaar is.

FinnIckler (979) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 30, 2017
Backlog from August 2017, bought in Berlin. Nose is clove, orange, citrus. Palate is citrus, some banana, a bit yeasty. Not bad, nice weizen to make bananenweizem as well!

500 ml bottle at Good Time Restaurant, Berlin, Germany. It pours clear yellow with a medium, frothy, white head. Aroma is lemon, strong wheat, malt, cereal, notes of spices. Taste is light sweet. Body is light to medium. Carbonation was average.

Orangebraun und hefetrüb mit schöner Schaumkrone. Leicht bananig mit harmonischen Zitrusnoten, hefig und vollmundig. Gut trinkbar.

Bijl (882) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2017
Oranjegeel, witte schuimkraag, troebel en redelijk veel koolzuur. Aroma: Tarwemout, banaan, kruidnagel, gist, zoetig en zurig en mooi fruitig. Smaak: Moutig, tarwe, tarwe zuurtje, wat spicy hops, gist. Banaanachtig is iets minder waarneembaar in de smaak maar is wel daar. Onder medium body, zacht koolzuur, romig/wheaty, afdronk is fris , iets kruidig met wat fruitige hinten. Super dorstlessend! Mooie Hefe!

Mpuntmuts (370) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2017
Haze brownish yellow. Aroma of malts, caramel, pineapple, banana and yeast. Taste medium sour, sweet and bitter. Very nice balance. Thin to medium bodied and medium carbo with a slightly watery finish. Very enjoyable!!!

Maisel’s weiße is a perfect example of German beer. The best of its kind that has a little more taste, colour and flavour... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
