COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
White Hoplosion represents a new variation on the classic style of wheat beer. The unfiltered beer combines typical balanced fruity flavors with fine distinctive hop notes to create an ultimate sensation of taste with 5.3 percent alcohol by volume. Using selected Bavarian noble hops, Weihenstephan emphasizes the bitterness of the wheat beer flavor, which is generally milder than lagers or pilsners.

MikeKeller (956) - Kemi, FINLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Draught @ Irish Pub St. Michael, Oulu.
Hazy yellow beer and a white head. Fruity aroma ish fresh, floral, yeasty and hoppy. Flavour is wheat malts, tropical fruits, quite dry and hoppy. Bitterness not on a very high level. I like the regular Weihenstephaner Hefe more than this.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2014 Re-rate 2014-02-21, tap @ Artturi.
Hazy yellowish orange beer with a big white head. Aroma has sweet banana, bubblegum and sour citrus. Flavor is dry and sour with citrus and bubblegum. Long finish with more bitterness than in hefeweizens typically. Thin palate with high carbonation. Comes out watery at times.

Pyobon (1542) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 17, 2013
(Tasting sample at Beer Cartel) Hazy yellow with big white head. Very pleasant typical German wheat beer aroma with banana ester and little evidence of hops. Light body with lively carbonation. Good flavour; to me it started off traditional wheat beer, light and tangy, and developed some good elegant hoppy bitterness in the finish, unusual for the style. A nice beer - the variation works well.

Tasting sample from growler tap at Beer Cartel. Interesting concept, a traditional brewer (arguably world's oldest brewery) doing their interpretation of a new world style. Kinda full circle. The result is not bad. Still the classic Weihenstephan signature aromas and tastes but with citrusy hops as well. For me, it's good as a concept beer but doesn't hold a candle to their standard hefe for regular drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
