DrnkMcDermott (3044) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2003 Bottled. I found this in a convenience store at the Doral Building on Michigan Avenue, tucked behind the Coors Light tallboys. Tasted it on the train home, since the rush hour schedule wouldn't let me stop over at Flossmoor Station. Drank this from the bottle, so I couldn't tell the color well. But drinking from the bottle did kick up a nice foamy head inside, and there was a fine coating of yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Presented a nice wheaty nose when I opened the bottle. The usual clove and banana tastes only became apparent after the first few sips. Between that was a nice malty sweetness balanced unobtrusively by German hops. Further down the bottle, the lemony taste becomes evident, which builds to a nice tartness as it warms up. All in all, a good, tasty beer to find.

500 ml. bottle in Mae Kasa, Thailand. Pours a cloudy, orangey amber with a soon dissipating white head. Aroma of bread, yeast, overripe bananas, maybe a hint of apricot. Crisp and lively carbonation with a pleasant acidity. Well balanced with a note of sour fruit in the finish. Impressive.

DraftDodger (1223) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2017
Copenhagen 17/1 2017. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Some hops lying around and a lot of advertisement telling me that this beer is "Aus Bayreuth". In addition to this they seem to be very preoccupied with the fact that this is the "Original Hefe-Weissbier". Expectations can’t get much higher now. Pours hazy orange with big bubbly yellowish head. Settles as thin almost non existent layer of foam. No lacing. Aroma is fruity and quite fresh. Banana and lemonade. Fairly strong carbonation and watery palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by tart and citric fruit. A bit too thin to live up to be "the Original"but by all means a solid Hefe Weizen.

kryspin3 (35) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 9, 2017
Mętne, złociste, piana obfita, sycząca, błyskawicznie opada do zera. W aromacie drożdże, pszenica, goździk, przejrzałe banany. Ogólnie słodki. W smaku pszenica, drożdże, goździk, lekkie cytrusy/cytryna. Banan w posmaku. Kwaskowe. Goryczka wyczuwalna, kojarzy się z takim przejrzałym, starym bananem. Niezbyt przyjemna. Wysycenie wysokie, nie za wysokie.

Ciemnozłote, mętne z obfitą pianą, opada dość szybko, ale zostaje do końca. Aromat estrowy, bananowy, trochę gruszki, gumy balonowej, przyjemny i poprawny, ale brakuje intensywności i jakiejś kwaskowatej nuty. Banan nadaje trochę słodyczy, ale ciężko powiedzieć, żeby było to piwo słodkie, bardzo lekka ziołowa goryczka. Dość wysokie wysycenie, ciała jest więcej niż się spodziewałem, ogólnie orzeźwiające i bardzo pijalne.

0,5 l Flasche. Aroma: Hefig, Weizen, fruchtig, leicht bananig, leicht zitronig. Erscheinung: Orangebraunes, trübes Bier, weizentypischer Schaum, schöne Gardine. Geschmack: weizentypisch, fruchtig, leicht säuerlich, leicht nussig. Nachgeschmack: Etwas zu viel Kohlensäure, schwer im Magen. Gesamt: Überdurchschnittliches Weizen, aber keine Offenbarung.

MaltCommander10 (8) - SOUTH KOREA - DEC 17, 2016 does not count
경쾌하게 목을 넘어간다. 입에 댄 순간의 날렵함이 곧 목넘김으로 이어진다. 알콜향이 좀 올라오는 가운데 바나나를 선두로 맛이 섞인다.

Obfita piana, ciemnozłote, zamglone. Aromat bananowy, do tego goździk, delikatnie czuć również drożdże. W smaku słodowe, banan dodaje lekkiej słodyczy, delikatnie ziołowe. Wysycenie wysokie. Jest orzeźwiające i pijalne
