Ein Weizen wie jedes andere ist es, jedoch ohne die bloedsinnige Banane. Dafuer dennoch leicht fruchtig mit uebermaessiger Kohlensaeure und einer generellen Saeure im Abgang. Trinkbar, aber auch recht simpel und gewohnt laff. Fuer ein Weizen aber ok.

Ach, ich weiß nicht. Im Großen und Ganzen hat es kaum Unterschiede zu einem Weizen von lidl. Einig ein klein wenig würziger und mit etwas mehr Kohlensäure versehen ist es. Der Rest ist ein recht typisches, simples Weizen mit den ewig gleichen, an Banane erinnernden, Fruchtaromen. Nett, aber heute ist es nur ein Bier. Irgendeins.

McTapps (6889) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - APR 22, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a cloudy yellow-golden colour with steady head and smooth body. Aroma of fruit salad and yeast. Taste of wheat, yeast, bananas, fruit salad and straw. Not sticky-sweet as many others but also not very nice in general. Average beer.

Pours out in a cloudy orange-yellow colour with low head and medium body. Nose of yeast and bread. Taste of yeast, exotic fruit salad and flowers. Very fruity-sweet finish. Carbonation is quite high what makes the beer being refreshing, but nevertheless it is boring and average.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes orangegoldenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, fruchtig, leicht würzig. Geschmack hefig, fruchtig, leicht bananig, etwas würzig.

(bottle) pours a murky golden colour with a frothy white head and lots of unappetizing yeast chunks. aroma of wheat, rubber boots, potato starch and a hint of herbal hops. flavour is mostly wheat and canned peaches, with a light hint of tobacco and banana in the finish. medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation.

pivnizub (10624) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle: Golden to deep golden, cloudy, big - slowly collapsing - off-white head, fresh lemony-yeasty nose, ripe bananas detectable as well; moderate sweetish-sourish flavour, accompanied by a delicate bitterness, light bodied and soft; slightly lingering sweetish-sourish wheaty-yeasty finish with shy hoppy traces in the aftertaste. A pleasant Weizen…

500 ml bottle. C. BB 21/03/13. From bierzwerg.de. Hazy golden colour with ridiculously big white fluffy head. Banana, caramel sweetness, fruits, wheat and yeast in aroma. Flavour is wheaty and yeasty. Mediocre Weizen. Not very tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2012
0.5 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Hazy yellow color. Sweetish spicy aroma with clove, banana, pepper, vanilla and grainy maltiness. Grainy and spicy flavor with clove, pepper and restrained banana. Full bodied. Good weizen with graininess, spiciness and banana in balance.
