Tap. Bread cereal yeasty aroma. Pours orange hazy body thin lacing. Taste is medium sweet to lightly sour. Medium bodied, sticky texture, soft carbonation, no great languor. Overall fine but unremarkable.

Keg at the Waterloo Tap. Biscuity malt, some caramel sweetness, nice hop bite. Really well-balanced, enjoyable pils. Lovely.

A bottle from the basement of Shinkong Mitsukoshi, opposite Main Station. Aroma: a bit sour. Appearance: cola, hazy amber, 5mm. off-white bubbles. Palate: light-bodied, rather thin, soft carbonation. Predominantly sweet finish. Taste: medium sweet, bubblegum at the finish, though the flavour is not sustained. Alright, nothing special.

Looks amazing, amber, hazy, firm, tall foam. Smells typically, not too intesively, i.e. bananas and coriander, but also some iron. The taste is very good, It's light, smooth, dry, bananas are present. Also some pleasant, medium for the style, bitterness in the back. Very drinkable. One good weiss!

31. 10. 2017, Klimno. Bottled. Nice familiar yeasty aroma, a bit held back. Med brown opaque colour with full blown head with good retention. Taste is classical Heffeweizen beer, banana notes, properly balanced, slightly biased towards sweet, mostly because of the roasted malt I guess. Mouthfeel is fullbodied, med to high carb, silky feel to it. Nice Heffe, could be one of the best...

31. 10. 2017, Klimno. Bottled. Nice familiar yeasty aroma, a bit held back. Orangey unfiltered colour with full blown head with low retention. Taste is classical Heffeweizen beer, banana notes, properly balanced. Mouthfeel is fullbodied, med carb, a bit of silky feel to it. Nice, but not quite among the best.

Not sure why this is so low-rated, I enjoyed it. Pour is clear golden with near-zero head. Aroma is biscuit, hay, mild herbal earthy hop, and a light sweet of honey. Flavor follows similarly. Very smooth, nice malt character, and clean finish. I'd be happy to drink this all day.

Nussiges und schokoladiges Aroma. Kakao und Milchscholoade im Antruk, gefolgt von einer dezenten Bitternis. Ein Dessertbier durch und durch.

Bottle. Pours slightly hazy straw with stable white head. Clear aroma of yeast, with notes of malt and papery touches. Sweetish flavour of yeast and malt. Estery finish with woody notes. Quite sweet but not bad for the style.

This one poured a crystal clear light yellow colour with a big, bright white, rocky head. Minimal lacing. Scents include cream corn, bread and a little hay. First swig was quite thin with flavours of corn and honey. Slightly sweet with a little caramel lingering.

0,5 L bottle, at Burg Eltz. Pours a dark, hazy orange, with a big, frothy, cream colored head. The aroma is orange peel, coriander, bread dough, and pepper. Sweet, with a mild, pleasant bitterness. Light body, with a chewy, thick, and bready mouthfeel. This is an easy and delicious weizen.

Slightly cloudy reddish-orange beer with a thick foamy bright white head. Nose of cloves, banana, and apricot. Flavor is more of the same with sweet spice, bubblegum, and banana with a barely discernible bitterness counterbalancing somewhat. Good beer for the style, but a tad sweet for me.

Piwo złote, mętne z piękną obfitą drobnopęcherzykową pianą. W aromacie mamy słód, banana i nutę drożdżową. Pierwsze co wali w kubki smakowe to ... kwaśność. Na tle większości weizenów, Benediktiner jest bardzo kwaśny. Z kolei mało jest tu typowej słodyczy, nut bananowych czy goździka. W tle jest dość nieprzyjemna goryczka (także wyższa niż u typowego weizena). Być może to piwo ma swoich fanów, ale dla mnie poza tym, że odbiega od stylu to jeszcze jest po prostu kiepskie.

Aroma is mostly caramel malt with only a hint of traditional German Bavarian Weis characteristics. Appearance is more like a regular good all malt beer with a nice head not like what you'd see with the German Bavarian Weiss beer. Flavor is a little better and does bring out those traditional characteristics some. It's an okay Weiss beer.

Tamno pšenično pivo koje mi se iz prve dopalo, a nakon nekoliko puta ipak nije ipresioniralo. Okus je prekisel i kao da ima premalo hmelja. Pivo je dapače pitko i popit ću ja još koji put, ali više sam očekivao. Ok weeis beer,but for me to small amount of hops. To sour. Color is good. It's drinkable but nothing special.

Tamna amber boja, zućkasta pjena, lijepo za oko. Voćna aroma, kao i aroma banane, a javlja se i malo zemljaste i čokoladne arome. Veoma blage gorčine, laganog tijela.

This is about as close to what I imagine the ur-doppelbock should be as I can imagine. Thick and sweet. Mostly dark fruit, but has a nice amount of anise character, some molasses and coffee. Very sweet. Tried for the first time back in 2007.

Una buena cerveza de trigo. No comprendo cuando los europeos dicen plátano o banano en su sabor.

Brown color with rocky beige head. Aroma is malty with bread crust, dark rye bread and a hint of caramel. Taste is mostly malty, slightly nutty with a touch of hop bitterness on the finish. Light body, medium plus carbonation. Overall it's a really well made dunkel.
