On tap at Valhalla. Sea salty, doughy, banana aroma. Banana and clove in the taste, citrus... Bright wheat ale with a touch of bitter hops.... Subtle though. Nice new weihenstephaner SamGamgee (2585) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - NOV 27, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2011 Draught at burger. Add me to the camps that didn’t really understand this one. Looks like a wit, smells like a hoppy Belgian with a weird fruitiness, and isn’t all that hoppy in the mouth. Could have been a little old but the flavors just seemed a little discordant, not really overtly oxidized. Not something I would get again and I love almost every other beer from Weihenstephan.

Sample from the tap at Jackie-Os.. Very light yellow color, definitely "white"... Halfway hazy. Nice, creamy white head. Coriander, hefe-like aroma. Light, crisp carbonation. Hops is there, but doesn’t give it an IPA-like bitterness at all. More sweet, with a good wheaty base. "Hopsplosion" is definitely a misnomer, but this is good. Very drinkable.

On tap at Gourmet Haus. Aroma of lemon, sweet malt and slight barnyard. Looks like a wit with smaller head. Taste is nice with banana and some spicy hops. I am missing the plot on this one!

On tap @ In De Wildeman. Pale yellow color, hazy. Dense white head. Aroma’s of banana, wheat, aromatic hops. Flavor is slightly sweet, a bit acidic, with a hint of bitterness. Finishes only mildly bitter. Nice, you can detect the hops (but it’s done very subtle) but I wouldn’t call it a ""plosion. Tmoney99 (15228) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Draft. Poured hazy yellow color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate floral hop aroma. Medium body with a thin smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Soft brew.

The aroma is mainly noble hops, some cereal grains, malts. The apperance is a hazy yellow, white head. The flavor is sour, acidic wheat, lemon. The finish is noble hops, acidic wheat grain flavors. Medium in body, maybe a little thin. Like a witbier in every way. OK. Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2011
On tap: The aroma consists of light banana, lemon, floral/grassy notes, and a hint of sulfur. It pours a cloudy dull gold with a small white head that leaves some nice webbing behind. The flavor starts with banana and light tangy citrus notes. The finish has done light lemon and grassy/floral notes. Light bodied with somewhat lively carbonation. Overall, I prefer the regular Weihenstephaner Hefe, but a very nice and refreshing beer. dagimp (1008) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2011
On tap at Brauhaus Schmitt in Philadelphia. This .5l beer broke my record for most expensive beer I’ve ever puchased, $8.75. luckily it was (almost) worth it. Pours white with some frothy head and little lacing. Aroma was a mix between the tropical hops of an IPA and a tartness and fruityness of a wheat beer. Mouthfeel was great, plenty of carbonation that made it nice and crisp. Light and very easily drunken (poor use of the word). Taste is a hoppy wit beer. Great, floral hop taste with the wheat fruitiness. This could have been a mess, but it worked out wonderfully. If you can find it, especially fresh on tap, order it. This very well could be a beer that has a very short shelf life. Not sure if it’ll ever be out in a bottle, but I’ll pick one up.
