Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Courtesy of Wild Oats. Poured 1 inch of fizzy white head that dissipated quickly. Displayed an ultra-murky tan hue. Strong nose of wheat. Tastes of wheat, earth, dried toast, and malt. Very high carbonation and thin body with a fickle mouth-feel. Nice. pforei (338) - USA - JUL 9, 2007
25 oz. bottle. Belgian Tumbler glass, (heehee). Rich dark color. Nice aroma of wheat, fruit, and spice. Banana malt and faint hops. Sweet, sour, and spicy with thinnish but soft palate. screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2007
Has a very hazy orange-brown body. The head is creamy white. Aroma is citrus and pineapple. Flavor brings fruits, banana, sweet malt and the mouthfeel is big. jefcon (1830) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Fleeting head. Lots of clove, orange, banana aromas. More citrus on the taste with a touch of lemon and a verbena vegetal flavor. Finish is a little minerally. Mike4686 (120) - Bayonne, New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2007

I always considered this to be darkish hefeweizen but I not a dunkel. I suppose it makes sense since it is pretty dark. Anyway it’s a golden orangey darkness. It pours with a huge head and ooks beautiful served in a weizen. It also tastes beautiful. The banana esters aren’t as prominent as some weizens but still exists. It has lots of spiciness and it is difficult to imagine how they got so much flavour diversity using so few ingredients. I’d consider it to be something of a classic of its style. kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 23, 2007
Bottle, kmweaver-exclusive non-RBSG pity-party tasting 2007. Pours a cloudy, dark brown color with yellowish edges; off-white head with great retention and lacing. Generous aroma, showing wheat and bananas and belgian sugars. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy display of complex esters and brown sugar, with lively citrus and wheaty notes; beautifully integrated, satisfying wheat beer. Medium, estery and brown sugar finish, with a hint of clove. Wonderful stuff. UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - JUN 20, 2007
Definitely one of the benchmark Hefeweissens available. Spicy and refreshing. None of that irritating banana flavour found in most hefes. BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2007
This is the best hefeweisse I’ve had in recent memory, and possibly ever. This beer offers a significant amount of clove and spice, but is not overpouring and is extremely drinkable.
Appearance is darker than I would’ve expected, and the head is billowy and plentiful (reminiscent of a Belgian strong ale). Aroma is clovey with some other spices. Flavor is extremely smooth and of more clove, balanced well with wheat and malt. Mouthfeel, due to secondary fermentation, is extremely smooth. I foundt his beer to be extremely drinkable, and went well with my meal at Cafe Brucke.
I would like to add that this bottle was extremely fresh, as is always the case with Cafe Brucke’s selection of imports. The bottle I had looked like it just came off the bottling line.
