KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Bottle. Poured dark murky orange with an average sized white creamy head that had fair lacing. The aroma was heavy with yeast, mild grain malt, a light citus hop with notes of banana, coriander and cloves. It tasted light, sweet and quite yeasty at first and finished with this light sweet-bitter acidic yeasty flavor with hints of citrus, spices and a touch of banana with the flavor lasting an average amount of time. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a soft carbonation. Overall a nice light full flavored Hefe-weizen.

Birra dal colore ambrato opaco schiuma abbondante. Media carbonatazione. All’olfatto note fruttate, con un pizzico di noce moscata. Al palato sentori di frutta esotica. Una buona birra.

Draft. Very murky opaque orange (amazing colour). Very fruity (citrus-orange, peach, banana). Spicy (coriander, clove). Wheaty, yeasty, malty (buttery caramel). Medium bodied. Sweet, smooth, rich. Dryish fruity finish. Very drinkable. Enjoyed this. Terrific beer! (2008) Also in Bottle - Bottle good, Draft Amazing.

MAGICuenca91 (73) - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, SPAIN - JAN 28, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2017 Buena cerveza de trigo. Un aroma afrutado, apariencia ámbar oscura, un sabor de cuerpo medio afrutado y un paladar correcto. No es de las mejores cervezas de trigo existentes, pero está en la zona noble del mismo estilo.

kdd230 (57) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2017
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 (1272) - 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 (44) - 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.
