geolgau (294) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - AUG 11, 2017
Aroma: yeast and sour dough profile. Wet grains, ripe bananas, spices. Taste is faint lemon zest, spicy coriander, bananas, sour dough. Medium-light body, good carbonation. Refreshing, above average weizen.

Bottle from LCBO. I was at a local brewpub -- Eastbound Brewing -- last night & made the mistake of ordering their bland hefe. This bottle comes as a relief. Beautiful pour, with a hazy egg yolk yellow with a two finger creamy cap on top. Rich wheat, smooth banana notes, very subtle clove. Carbonation is a tad flaccid. Smooth hot summer session starter.

Sjohnh (974) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2017
Light gold, slightly cloudy, plenty of white head. Medium body. Really good aroma with banana, clove, peppery spice, caramel. Flavour on the sweeter side for the style but acceptably so.

Apariencia típica de una weissbier, con espuma blanca y densa que disminuye hasta un dedo de grosor y aguanta hasta el final. Su color es amarillo intenso y es turbia. Gran cantidad de burbujas finas que no paran de subir, en boca no se nota tanto la carbonatación. El aroma es fuerte a los cereales (trigo y cebada) con sutiles notas a plátano y a cítricos. Lo que más me ha gustado de esta cerveza es el buen cuerpo que tiene: no es ni muy pesada como otras de su estilo, ni es demasiado ligera, lo cual es una gran ventaja. En boca se siente la carbonatación, con sabores a pan, ligero plátano y limón, donde sobretodo destaca el dulzor de los cereales. Una gran weissbier, sin llegar a la altura de las mejores, pero muy recomendable.

Frothmeister (810) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a three finger off-white cap. Very unique nose for a hefeweizen. Caramel, light apple notes, banana pudding with aromas that seem more "spiced Christmas ale" than hefeweizen. Cinnamon, clove, and even faint note of gingerbread. It smells fantastic. Taste wise, heavy carbonation and medium sweet with banana notes up front, light orange peel, faint clove, and a little bit of spice on the tongue that leads into maltier notes, clove, yeast, more spice on the tongue, with some mineral notes in the finish. This is really solid. I would totally buy it again. I’m kind of surprised by the low ratings.

Metalchopz (3419) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2017
Pours a cloudy golden-amber colour with a creamy cap, decent lasting with some soapy lacing. Cereal grain smell with some rye notes and darker malts. Some sweetness comes out of it eventually. The wheat balances the darker malts as flavours, and hints of banana are felt. Smooth finish, but some richness gets a little too heavy overall. Maybe need to chug cold next one.

3.7
fkoolen (1252) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2017 Bottle @ Osteria Dell’Orsa, Bologna. Cloudy golden straw colour, creamy white head. Nicely creamy (!) malts, banana, light citrus. Good body, medium carbonation.

3.9
lesifflebiere (1904) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2017
La bière est jaune orange, un peu trouble, et plus pétillante que mousseuse. Le nez est de bananes, de clémentine et de gâteau au citron. Une bouche langoureuse mais un peu mince suit, les saveurs classiques (pain aux bananes, gomme balloune, épices) s’enchaînant une après l’autre. Un bel exemple du genre, moins copieux et généreux que d’autres, mais tout à fait irréprochable dans l’exécution.

JefVerstraete (3418) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2017
Bottle @ home. Hazy yellow colour, white creamy foam. Nose of banana and citrus. Taste is sweet, light citrus tartness, light bitter. Very nice and refreshing.

dutchdarthvader (246) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2017
Tap @ Wush, Amsterdam. Eerste indruk bestelde een medium bier maar dat is gewoon een halve liter. Het is een sterk troebel geel biertje. Zacht zoete bananen geur en frisse fruitige smaak waar de zelfde componenten maar ook citrus naar voren komt. Eerlijk gezegt niks op aan te merken maar echt 10 in een dozijn biertje. Dat het zich zelf een königlicher hoheit noemt is natuurlijk mooi. Maar als ik de köning Ludwig was zou ik ook eens verder kijken.
