TreinJan's rating

TreinJan (4) - Leiden, - DEC 17, 2011
A Hefeweizen mit Flaschengärung, made from wheat malt and smoked barley malt, with refermentation in the bottle. The bottle will be poured at the servery and will not be brought to your table, as is the custom here. Hazy to murky appearance, not so much foam as usual for a Hefeweizen. Fruity (some banana, some citrus), malty-sweet plus slightly smoked taste, creamy mouthfeel. Some slight bitterness in the aftertaste. Not really my cup of eh.... beer, but interesting.

Lowenbrau (4132) - Asturias, SPAIN - JAN 14, 2017
50cl bottle @Spezial Keller, Bamberg. 06-08-2016.
BBD: 15-02-2017.
Stated 5,3ş.
Pours hazy deep gold-orange with frothy white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Banana, spicy nose. Medium body, average to high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is wheat like, fruity, banana, spicy. Very enjoyable.

SVD (1953) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2016
Bottle at home, hazy orange beer, small head. Aroma is wheat, smoke, some bananas. Taste is the same. not bad.

SinH4 (4708) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2016
At Spezial Keller. Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is fresh minerally, spicy, a bit bananas. Taste is more minerally freshness, really not much more - just hints of bananas. High carbonation, soft mouthfeel.

Frisch und gut gekühlt vom Fass in der Brauerei. Das wahrscheinlich beste Rauchweizen deutschlandweit.

FatPhil (15964) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 2, 2016
500ml bottle (HBF2016)
Very soft bacony aroma. Sweet malty body, some smoked sausage. Lovely wheatiness too. Very nice.

Marduk (7588) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 11, 2016
500ml bottle @HBF 2016 as " Spezial Special Weissbier Rauch". Clear amber color. Huge size, white head, stays. Fatty sausages, smokey, minerals in aroma. Delicious smokiness along with fatty sausages in taste. Grains, some minerals and yeast in aftertaste. Solid brew.

Mister_Li (1337) - GERMANY - MAR 24, 2016
Hefetrübes Bernstein mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Malzig, etwas Karamell, rauchig, Speck, hefig, leicht fruchtig, spritzig.

Zlotta (3193) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2016
0.5 l bottle from ’De Bierkoning’, best before June 2016. Hazy, golden amber with a massive, dense, stable, tan head. Faint, sweetish-malty, slightly smoky aroma of honey, charcoal, banana and hints of clove. Sweetish-malty, spicy and slightly smoky taste of honey, banana, charcoal, clove and some vanilla, followed by a short, chalky, yeasty-spicy finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. I assume that without the subtle notes of smoke this would be a very mediocre Weizen. But in this way it is somewhat unique while being less offensive than Schlenkerla’s Rauchweizen.

Leighton (21083) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle shared on the train from Nuremberg to Freising during day 3 of the Bamberg Jolly of January 2015. Pours cloudy yellow-gold with a fluffy white head. Very nice, with good balance, and creamy wheat, light esters, faint lemon. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation, and massaging texture. Nicely balanced finish, some dry wheat, a little banana, citrus fruits. Solid hefe.

Ruprecht_007 (872) - Cesky Tesin, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 9, 2015
Parva oranžově zlatá, pěna hustá. Vůně lehká. Vyšší říz, příjemný mírně hořký nástup, v pozadí lehká banánová chuť. Celkem slušná pšenice...
