COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Maxlrainer LEO WEISSE is the appellation distinguishing our classic pale wheat beer. This is the ultimate in fruity wheat beer taste and has continued to qualify for the DLG GOLD Award year in, year out.

LEO WEISSE with its full round taste and own inimitable character reigns supreme in Bavarian wheat beer realms, the real secret behind it lying in the brewery’s distinct method of producing top-fermented yeast. Even as the beer is being drawn, the gourmet senses the wonderful aroma it develops. Left to mature in the storage cellars, LEO WEISSE is bottled in its cloudy, unfiltered state, thus keeping the malt and yeast constituents fine and nourishing.

Like SCHLOSS GOLD, the Maxlrain LEO WEISSE, a DLG gold award-winning brew for years on end, is also available in smart 0.33l bottles.

einherjar (456) - Rijeka, CROATIA - SEP 22, 2017
Light orange color, medium white head. Aroma banana, yeast. Hefe with most dominant banana taste, very high carbonation, light sweet. Finish is a bit weak, missing some citrus notes, but nevertheless very good.

mzaar (3640) - Varberg, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2017
Rating number 3500. Bottle from Maestral, Bol. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aromas and flavours of banana, wheat and cloves. A bit thin, yet quite refreshing and tasty.

3.2
tgrtnr (321) - Augsburg, Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2017
500 ml bottle. Pours cloudy dark orange with foamy head. Banana aroma is dominant, some clove, vanilla, yeast. Mild taste. Almost no bitterness, a bit sweet and acidic. Creamy mouthfeel, lively carbonated. Finish a bit weak, but overall good Weißbier.

3.5
Marko (6088) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 13, 2017
Bottle at Pivoteka. Murky ochre, huge thick white head, lasting. Aroma... Banana, caramel, light apple/glue. Full, light cloves. Nice, soft caramel and banana driven taste. Sweetish yet carbonated enough not to be cloying. Bit empty finish. Not world class but a very good weizen!

This beer got a pretty good balance between the Aroma and the bitterness. I’ve personally drank it many times already!

Enjoyed: On tap, in weizen. Appearance: Hazy yellow/orange colour, with rich white foam. Aroma: Wheat, corn, banana, cake. Palate: Medium body, low carbonation. Taste: Sweet, taste of cake. Overall impression: Nice, but I had better wheat beer.

hrabren (1516) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 1, 2016
0.5 l bottle from Pivoteka. Retro tasting session by Hrabren’s Choice. Shared with Višnja. Opaque orange, small off-white head. Orange, dust, light banana, fruity. Sweet, light yeasty sourness. Medium body, medium carbonation, abrupt finish. Not unpleasant.

3.5
Hrc_Cro (618) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 3, 2016
0.5l bottle. Cloudy pale orange color with white head. Aroma of clove, yeast, soap and banana. Taste is sweet, bitter and little sour. Less sweet than most wheat beer and it makes it kind of different, even though it’s not really that remarkable beer.

3.2
hauxe (927) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JUL 13, 2016
Pours light orange from the bottle and leaves a big, foamy head that subsides but lingers for much of the duration. Aroma is fresh bread, with the banana notes increasingly creeping in as you progress through the glass. Sweet in taste, lots of bread, light banana, no real spice. Faint sourness in an otherwise unremarkable finish. Medium bodied. Lots of fizz. Refreshing. Decent stuff.

3.7
glennmastrange (2914) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2016 Bottle. Moderate aromas of grain, straw and cereal for the malt, light herbs for the hops, moderate dough for the yeast, with lots of banana and a hint of clove. Head is huge, creamy turning rocky, white, with good lacing and is fully lasting. Color is murky yet sparkling yellow. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes slightly acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation. For a light German hefeweizen this was pretty damn good.
