Draught at the Rover, Gothenburg, February 5, 2006.
Nice light golden color, bananas in the scent and flavor. Feels like a classic weiss.
Easily one of the most satisfying beers I’ve ever tasted. Only ever found it in one Greek restaurant in Hildesheim, Germany, does anybody know where it is available in the UK? hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2005
´Hazy pale yellow. Thick white huge creamy head. spicy nose with hints of ham. Sweet refreshing spicy flacour. Slight citric. Fruity orange taste. bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2005
Bottle. The colour is yellow-orange; the liquid is cloudy. The large head is white and compact. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2006
The smell is fruity with a notorious sour note of wheat bread and sweet apples.
The taste is very fresh, with just the right body – not watery, nor overwhelming. The first earthy note is replaced by a sour fresh flavour that develops into a sweet note of sour apples and even some white loaf. The aftertaste got a long creamy and balanced taste of dry apples and even some pineapples.
The carbonation is good vith a lot of small bubbles.
Overall, this is a fine Weissbier!
Bottle. Pours cloudy pale yellow with a thick egg-white-like head. Aromas of coriander, clove and subdued banana. Dry mouthfeel despite initial sweetness, harmonious banana and spices flavour. This is a very elegant hefeweisse and not too distant from the best Belgian wits either. If it is a banana juice you are after, this hefeweisse will probably get low ratings. A beer rater, however, would appreciate its harmony and well-balanced restraint.

Very blonde. Looks more Belgian than German to me. Flavourvise it is actually in between the two. Quite sweet, lots of herbs and banana. Slightly thin bod. Refreshing and clean.
Draught, at The Rover (040616).
Pale yellow with a large off-white head, mostly lasting, good lacings. Aroma moderate malty (coriander, citrus, spicy) light hoppy and yeasty. Flavour moderate sweet and light bitter/acidic. Light body, watery, lively carbonateed. A fine hefeweizen. Silvan7 (1264) - Samarate, ITALY - AUG 26, 2013
