COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The taste properties and aroma of wheat beer unfold best of all if it is poured into a cup intended namely for this sort- with narrow bottom and widened top. In such cup the bubbles of carbonic acid effervesce slowly, saving the freshness of the beer and forming especially bouncy foam. Before serving the wheat beer it is recommended to cool it to the temperature of 8- 10 degrees centigrade; then its properties will be unfolded best of all. Besides it is advisable to rinse the cup before using it in cold water (especially on a hot summer day). There is a certain ritual of pouring wheat beer from the bottle into the cup. Traditionally an empty cup is put on the bottle, then the bottle with the cup is overturned, and the beer is poured by slowly raising the bottle upwards. This ritual has been thought of not due to the attractive pouring way, but to make the beer yeast present in the bottle rise from the bottom and distribute evenly in the full cup. If it is poured properly, thick foam rises above the brim of the cup as if a cap.
The Bavarian tradition teaches to greet each other with the bottom of the cup in gentlemen way, so that the cap of the white foam does not fall.

BeardedAvenger (799) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2017
Can from a minimart in Thetford - May have been called Euro Market? Sweet banana and cloves aroma. Opaque pale gold. Creamy if blotchy white head. Sweet and sour, the latter more so into the finish. Foam banana sweets, herbs and citrus. Relatively light bodied and on the thin side but rescued by the soft carbonation. Abrupt finish, somewhat astringent. Much better than the previous Lithuanian hefe I had. Perhaps not a classic but a decent enough effort.

Pours clear yellow, large head. Nose shows banana, doughy wheat, soft spicy phenols, light banana confectionery. Flavours include doughy wheat, banana, bready malt. Very little bitterness, making it seem a bit on the sweet side.

kamillozo (184) - POLAND - JUN 4, 2017
Butelka. Piwo barwy żółto-miodowej, całkowicie zmętnione. Piana śnieżnobiała, obfita, drobna, zwarta, dość trwała - redukuje się wolno do postaci kożucha. Aromat dość wyraźny i klasyczny: bananowe estry, lekke goździkowe fenole, zboże, może gumy balonowej brak. W smaku słodkawe, najbardziej dominuje dojrzały banan, wspomagany przez drożdże i zboże. Jest też odpowiednia fajna cytrynowa kwaśność. Finisz bardziej wytrawny z wyczuwalną niską goryczką chmielową. W odczuciu jest dość pełne, rześkie, choć nagazowanie mogłoby być większe.

ianwelby (1394) - SCOTLAND - JUN 3, 2017
Pale yellow, white head. Lemony, bready aroma. Taste is banana, citrus. Not much aftertaste though it’s relatively dry. Standard-issue wheat beer but it’s drinkable enough.

Pudelek (432) - Gùrny Slùnsk / Oberschlesien, - MAY 31, 2017
Butelka. Aromat bananowy, smak klasycznego weizena, z bananem, pszenicą. Niezłe, choć bez szału.

hawthorne00 (3955) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 28, 2017
Can, imperial pint. Hazy pale gold with a fair white head. Aroma of hay, coriander, coves, some banana. Getting towards watery. Not enough bread, little banana, but dryish and quite spicy at the end. OK, just a bit thin.
