worldbeertaste (1805) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Hazy orange with a thin fully disappearing white head. Smells of orange, grass, cherries and a bit of honey. Medium oily body. Tastes of pale malt, rotten fruit and a sour stale rot finish. Not very nice and lots of old oranges. sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2014

Thin white head. Cloudy golden blond pour. banana aroma. very good. superspak (5584) - Michigan, USA - JAN 21, 2014
22 ounce bottle into weizen glass; no bottle dating, but was released fairly recently. Pours very hazy golden orange color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with decent retention, that reduces to a spotty lace cap that lingers. Minimal lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big orange peel, pear, apple, banana, apricot, wheat, bread, bubblegum, clove, pepper, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, hop notes; with good strength. Taste of orange peel, apricot, banana, pear, apple, wheat, bread, clove, bubblegum, light pepper, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of orange peel, apricot, banana, pear, apple, wheat, bread, clove, bubblegum, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, complexity, and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, and moderate hop flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and very smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice hefeweizen. All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, and moderate hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Flavors of banana, clove, and some slight green apple tartness. Light, and peppery, with some nice and sweet flavors. Japalo (1886) - DENMARK - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle@home. No head. Golden slight orange. No carbonation!! Crazy banana spicy coriander flavours. Dry slight tart. The lack of carb and head lowers the rating. Huhzubendah (3705) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 4, 2013
The beer is dark orange with only a mild haziness. The head is surprisingly nonexistent for a hefeweizen. Even an aggressive pour yields very little cap. The aroma offers some bubble gum like sweetness. Banana, clove, sugary candies. The taste is a little better than the aroma, lacking the cloying sweetness I had feared. A bit of prickly carbonation, in spite of the nearly still and lifeless appearance. Overall, a pretty solid beer. tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Bottle split with Chris. Pours a very murky dark gold with medium off-white head. Nose of wheat, banana, clove, light citrus. Medium body, assertive carbonation. Taste of banana, citrus wheat and spice. Decent. Usko (171) - Bavaria, GERMANY - DEC 2, 2013
0.65l bottle. Golden/reddish color, white and not very stable head. Aroma is a mixture of all possible aromatic profiles of a Weißbier, banana, clove and yeast. Taste is a bit more banana, somehow spicy. Medium body, medium carbonation, low bitterness.
