KaiserKolsch (38) - USA - OCT 3, 2007
Great head, and sweet lemon grass smell, this beer was a little sweeter than most hefeweizens, and a little bit hard to drink due to the overpowering sweetness, but still preferable to most beer in general

MartinT (9729) - 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.

hopscotch (11012) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Bottle... Clear yellow ale with a large, fluffy, white head. Lengthy retention. The aroma is of citric acid and yeast... lemony and a touch breadsy. No esters or phenols of note. Nice! Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Citrusy flavor... lightly sweet; moderately tart. Crisp, tangy, refreshing finish. Much better than expected!

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2010
Its unclear, dark golden with a huge, white, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of banana, clove and wheat. The flavour is sweet with notes of clove, citrus, banana, wheat, and the finish is dry with notes of clove and citrus. Its truly a light with a lot of flavour.

SinH4 (4438) - 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.

shrubber85 (11220) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Bottle. Strong wort malt flavor with banana and clove notes. Hazy golden yellow color with minimal head. Sweet wheat malt and banana/clove flavor. Nice for a light Weizen - really like the malt flavor.
