dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2005
Bottled. Huge head. Cloudy yellow colour. Aroma is quite bananaey and yeasty, but has some characteristics of lambics. Typcial helles wiessbier taste, rather low on banana and cloves, with a more prominent yeastiness and citricity. I couldnt detect any differences to other hefeweizens in the taste. The only points, where I think the chapagne yeast showed through was the gigantic head and hints in the aroma. Still, a decent weizen without any major flaws. Thanks to joss for this one.

rauchbier (3815) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2005
Bottle, from Microbar, London courtesy of John White. Hazy pale gold, thin fizzy white head and soft but insistent condition. Low lemony citrus and fruity yeast in the nose, quite thin in the mouth with a gentle dry banana note and low citrus hints. Low yeasty dry finish. Unexciting.

DanielBrown (4393) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2006 Bottle from the Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Prior to opening this I was wondering exactly what would constitute a Kellerweizen - I didnt twig the champagne yeast thing and thought it might be russett coloured... Its not red, its a bright gold, with extreme fizziness and a pillowy, billowing white head. Familiar Hefe banana aroma. Very odd taste: a Hefe finish, but prior to that a sour, appley taste, distinctly cidery. Prior to rating, if I had to pin this down to a particular style, Id have said a golden Landbier, with bits of a Kristall - I didnt think it thick enough for a Hefe. A strange concoction - a mess you might call it, but I choose to see it as an interesting experiment. Lambic reminiscent or Berliner weisse? - possibly. Refreshing? - yes. Engaging? - yes, Id say so. A tricky one this, as Im sure you can gather, but Id have it again gladly and would like some comparative examples....

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2004
Bottle. Quite clovey, with a slightly thin acidic mouthfeel. Gets drier and drier towards the end. But, it is a pretty typical German Wheat. Drinkable, pleasant.

skortila (5420) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2004
Aroma is yeasty, sweet, citrus, a litlle banana and wheat. Hazy, yellow-golden coloured with a lasting white head. Taste is sweet, some wheat in it, some bananas, yeast and citrus. Champagneyeast is noticeable. Decent wheat.

caesar (6745) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2004
Slightly hazy golden color, big white head, large bubbles. Aroma is sharp and sweet from champagne, and only some banana and wheat from a weizen. Very obvious champagne yeast taste to this weizen, where the wheat and banana are not so dominant as most other hefeweizens, which is in fact a bit disappointing. I like my weizen to taste of banana and wheat. But overall, nice beer.

Oakes (15820) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2003
Rather unfortunate insipid yellow. Large bubbles. Very large, white, thick head. Slightly toasty aroma with apple and banana bread notes. Too fizzy - this is really bloating, even for a weizen. Thin body. Some banana and spice notes, and yes this is less estery. I know what to make of it - it's rubbish.

omhper (23892) - Tyres, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2003 Bottled. Pale orange with rich, creamy head. Appley aroma. Fruity, papery and malty. Lively and spritzy. Much less estery than a regular hefeweizen. I don't really know what to make of it.

Bov (12109) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 7, 2003
fermented with champagne yeast
hazy lactic colour, fine head, strong corn and haye aroma with light banana notes, tart and acidic, dry wheaty finish - not much character

bierkoning (12680) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2003
Light color, cloudy, small frothy head. Vinous aroma with orange and apricot. Yeasty vinous flavor, like a chardonnay. Grapes and a bit herbal. A-typical weizenbier with a subtle flavor.
