Notoriously difficult to brew in Germany and called Shizen beer by German Brewers. Haus Weiss offers everything from a classic wheat beer; subtle banana flavour touching on mango.

A shifty brew: light, clean and amber, but with rich yeast aromas and a champagne-size bubble. Citrus, banana and some charcoal on the taste. Bright, short palate. Different take on a hefe breaking the mold. Probably too minerally for many.

Pretty good, if a little bland - not got much of that Hefeweizen fruitiness that some of the pukka Gerry beers have. Reminded me of Erdinger in that sense - good, but not the real deal.

A pint of Oyster Stout under my belt, I decided to call for something lighter and the Haus Weiss was just what I needed. Poured a rather uninspiring cloudy golden hue and topped of nondescript white foam, this one wasnt after good looks. The aroma, however, was replete with sweet scents and exciting memories of my childhood. The artificial but always Proustian fragrances of Haribos Fraises Tagada and Bananes are unmistakable and dominate beside bubble gum, wheat and subtle lemon zest. Apparent again on the tongue, estery banana is prominent alongside bubble gum, wheat, green apple and chalk. The lightly acidic and well carbonated texture furthers the sugarcoated sensation. Reminiscent of the birthday parties of my youth, days when my parents would be lenient on my candy intake (or werent there to stop me), this beer is a real treat for both mind and palate.

Big time banana but not really hazy. I also thought there was an artificial element to this one, although I know they use all natural ingredients.

Lovely golden colour, beautiful frothy white head. Very smooth beer that tastes mildly of banana with a strong wheaty aftertaste. Good from both Porterhouse Central and North.
