WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2008
Very obviously a Schneider, with intense lemon, clove, and pepper in the nose and in the flavor. Hazy gold, huge head, good lacing. No surprise in the intense clove and pepper and citrus in the taste, although the bite was delightfully extreme. Great surprise was the pronounced hoppiness and the bitter finish. I need another to calibrate my ranking, but on a first try this was lovely.

asheft (3029) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2008
[bottle--thanks, pivnizub!] Potent pine hops aroma with some clove and notes of ginger and lemon and a little bit of vitamin. Murky light yellowish brown with a big rocky head that drops to a thick, bubbly cover that clings to the glass. Smooth, yet strong flavour of citrus hops with some pine, corriander. Significant sweetness that is balanced by an appropriate amount of bitterness which is unusual for this style (of course this beer is not really in any style). Warm with alcohol, but no ethanol flavour. Salty. Full body, high carbonation, lingering hops flavour.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 9, 2008
Bottle from PP Bottle Shop. Pours a murky dull orange yellow hue with modest head. Nose is pine resin with a touch of bubblegum yeast, caramel, light fruits (pears, apricots), citrus, and spice. Taste is sweet fruits with a flavorful hop and spice backbone, sweet caramel malts and yeast hit midway along with fruit syrup, finishes drying with a hint of alcohol warming and pepper spice. Medium-bodied with smooth creamy texture and moderate carbonation. A well-balanced variant of a wheat, bursting with amazing aromas, hops accentuate the fruits and yeast, very impressive!

Mmm. Lots of wheat, fruit, citrus. This feels very traditional and much better than your average American. Well balanced and tasty.

Radek Kliber (7239) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 7, 2008
Bottle 500 ml
Appearance: Mid hazed summer amber with large brisk white crown.
Nose: Strong , refreshing nose. Peach and mango, sweet green hops with sweet caramel dough like base. Late spiciness is noted. Very neat.8-
Flavor/Palate : Medium full bodied hoppy wheat. Citric , fruity hop character with slight dryness at finish. Not as wholesome rounded as one might wish to be. Green slightly metallic hops at finish with drying alcohol.. Long lasting spicy , peppery character stretched over. I wished be bit sweeter.

downender (8189) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2008
Bottle from Utobeer. Deep golden in colour with a huge, rocky white head. Aroma of yeast, plenty of spice including cloves and a hint of coriander, lemon and floral hops. Flavour was sweet, with some graininess, citrus fruit and plenty of hops, giving a hint of pine. Plenty of warming alcohol in the finish. An unusual take on wheat beer which was thoroughly enjoying.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - SEP 5, 2008
Pours foggy pale golden orange with decent off white head. The nose is subtly sweet and fruit with a floral hop profile. The flavor is quite the same, and very easy drinking.

KimJohansen (10450) - Frederiksberg C, Dnemark, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2008
Hazy amber with medium off white head. Sweet fruity aroma with hoppy and wheaty notes. Hoppy flavor with wheaty and grapefruit notes.

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - SEP 2, 2008
Maybe it was just the light, but a beautiful gold body that faded to copper just underneath a good sized, flat topped head. Melons, lemon and banana backed up by yeasty wheat in the nose. Flavors of citrus, more banana and spice with a touch of bitterness along with smooth sweet malt and wheat. Youd never guess that it was 8.2% unless it warms up a little. Never cloying and a light body for such a flavorful beer. Time to go buy some more. Fantastic.

satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2008
nose is an attack of tropical fruits and yeast with character beyond that of a simple weizen. with almost belgian qualities, the yeast brings a storm of cloudiness to the brews hue. people talk about fruit notes in beer, and weizens specifically are spoken of having banana notes. well this isnt a note, its a pineapple the size of a football crushed and smothering you! wow! still, this is tempered with an interesting spicyness from the hops that doesnt present itself with typical bittering ideals. in time the source of the spiciness reveals itself to be alcohol as well as hops, which begins its slow but pleasant burn. this is one of the most well hopped weizens ive ever had, maybe #1 in that regard. this is definately the best weizen ive ever sampled, the traditional style while comforting cant touch something of this caliber. at minimum, this is the first hands down 10 on aroma ive ever sampled.
