Braastad's rating

Braastad (459) - - MAY 11, 2013
Semi-hazy with eager head. Faint banana and yeast on the aroma. Flavor has even less than the aroma, but much the same. A bit sour aftertaste.

sjogro (3763) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2017
Bottle shared at home. Hazy golden amber. Sweet malts, grain, banana yeast. Light sweet and bitter. Medium body, creamy and malty feel but also a bit watery. Nice for the light abv.

Maakun (5174) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2017
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Hazy orange golden with off white head. Light banana and cloves, soft dry malts, mineral, light bread, apricots, chalk. Light sweet and under medium bitter. Quite light bodied. Not bad for a low alcohol beer.

SinH4 (4564) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2016
Bottle. Hazy golden-orange color with creamy white head. Aroma is citrus, a bit dusty yeasts, bananas, wheat, a bit sweet. Taste is tart, a bit sweet, more bananas and wheat. Some of these low-abv grains noticeable as well. Smooth mouthfeel, but also a more crisp carbonation. Refreshing and very good. Thirst quencher and a really good Leichte Weisse.

JaKeAFC (1109) - ITALY - SEP 16, 2015
From the godfathers of THE weizen beer now comes this light version... 50 cl bottle at the braustuberl. Looks like its bigger sister, nice cloudy orange color, big white head. Light weizen smell. Aroma of banana, yeast, mineral water. Flat taste. Heavy carbonation, light body. Not as good as the original, of course, but stil solid and quaffable. For sure a winner in the lightweights tier.

MichaelAwesome (6517) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2015
Nein, ein Klassiker wird das bier nicht werden. Aber fr ein halbes ist es durchaus trinkbar. Geht sehr leicht runter, ist natrlich etwas dnn und leicht holzig. Ganz ok halt.

Marheb (5705) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 17, 2014
(bue sur place): Un nez agrable dpices gteau et dune douceur provenant de lapparence de banane. Le corps est videmment mince et la finale sche mais on est loin dun fiasco faible en alcool.

MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Mild caramel and cloves rise from this Leicht Weissbiers bubbly mouthfeel, building a refreshing though forgettable pint.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the cloudy beige.
-Drinkability is high, but mostly due to the bodys dryness.
-Banana esters are surprisingly low in this version.
-Like in many German leicht or alkoholfrei brews, the nose conveys beer, but the flavor profile cannot follow up. Oh well, Im not going to get pregnant any time soon.

On tap at their restaurant in Freising.

Bamberg Jolly Day 3 26/01/2014. Bottle shared at the Weihenstephaner Am Dom in Freising. Clouded greyish orange coloured pour with a frothy white head. Aroma is banana bread and dough. Flavour is doughy, some acid and light milkyness. Finish has dull banana and spicy clove. Some residual sweetness. Carbonic acid in the finish.
