3.8
Lore (2989) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 26, 2016
very hazy yellow colour, minimal off-white head, which disappers fully within some seconds; aroma and taste of banana, lemony notes, wheat, orange zest, some tropical fruits, boiled vegetables and hints of dried tomato; great beer!

Saeglopur (2411) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - FEB 13, 2016
330 ml bottle as "Rieder Weißbier Bock" from Beer Store Vienna, bb 05.08.16.
Pale orange, hazy body, with a massive, stable, creamy, lacing, off-white head.
Aroma of banana, vanilla, bubblegum, clove, orange, bread, some dried fruits.
Taste follows this pretty much, with a quite creamy feel.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes spicy, yeasty, fruity, medium sweet, a bit dry, with a subtle alcohol warmth.

Very nice. Lighter bodied for this style and not very different to a normal Weizen, but very well balanced and quaffable, with a distinctive creaminess. Not a special style example maybe, but I enjoyed this more than expected.

Sebilinz (2714) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JAN 5, 2016
Bottle. Hazy golden body with large lasting white head. Aroma is fruity bananas with hints of citrus and yeast. Taste is banana with wheat and malts. Aftertaste is some malts with slight bitterness.

dnicolaescu (2787) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - NOV 22, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL as Weissbier Bock. Cloudy yellow, creamy white head. Aroma of grassy hops and peppers, lemon zest, pear and pine-apple. Some vegetable notes of sun-dried tomatoes. After a while, the tomatoes go away and the clove gets bigger. The taste is strong and juicy, with the flavour following the aroma (including the tomatoes) The finish is grassy bitter with a mild crisp astringency. Quiet nice, even if slightly flawed - 3,4/5.

blackisle (2890) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2015
As Weissbier Bock, bottle 33cl. Cloudy straw to pale gold color, average frothy white head, diminishes slowly, fair lacing; rich aroma, wheat, banana, coriander, clove, yeast, citrus; taste medium sweet, slightly bitter, wheat, light banana, bit woody; medium body, oily to watery texture, soft carbonation, aftertaste mild bittersweet, herbal and spicy notes, a bit harsh on the palate; nice though the aroma promises more than taste and aftertaste deliver.

1.5
ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2014
11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a murky amber color. The head is a one finger white shade. Retention is just okay, but it has a nice texture and a bit more lacing left than I’d expect from a weizen. S: OH GOD WHAT IS THIS. It smells like shit - I’m not being cute, it really does smell like a combination of fertilizer, bile, cardboard, and ammonia. I know this isn’t a fresh bottle, but cripes on a stick. Way, way, WAY too oxidized: the screw top and the dinged bottle cap should have warned me... T: The fecal qualities aren’t here, but who cares...this is a total cardboard bomb. On the finish, some sugary qualities make themselves known along side some earthen notes. A shame, the oxidation has killed it. M: Undercarbonated to hell and back. While it helps give it a pleasant creaminess, it makes it a syrupy mess on the palate. Because it finishes half-acceptably, it’s not entirely undrinkable! Great... O: Bad, plain and simple. Let’s be fair, though, there are wisps of a good hefeweizen here - but a lot of this could have been prevented had the brewer not used a screw cap. It’s always fun to try these old-ass beers that aren’t meant to be aged regardless.
