Tawandang Weizen
On tap at Spark & Tawandang, pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out banana and clove in decent balance, with a little whispy wheat. Flavour follows accordingly, with a solid character of banana and clove. Actually a pretty authentic hef, with a solid banana character. Surprisingly decent.

Tawandang Dunkel
On tap at Spark & Tawandang, pours a cloudy dark reddish brown with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out light toasted malt, some light nuttiness and a touch of red fruits. Flavour is dry, with toasted nuts, bready malt and a bit of a stale quality. Not bad, but could use some tweaking. Okay.

2.1
Tawandang Weizen
On draught at the Phnom Penh branch. Not sure if they brew on site or if the beers come from Thailand. If the latter, perhaps this hadn’t travelled too well. If the former, I just wasn’t too impressed. Hazy yellowish amber pour. Aroma was quite skunky and eggy. Granted, a little wheat and citrus in it too. Taste was much the same. Fruity and citrussy with wheat but ultimately it was quite stale unfortunately.

Cloudy blond color. Light wheat aroma, more pronounced wheat flavor; it has mild spice and fruit touch; dry; very low bitterness.
Easy but not bad.

Tawandang Dunkel
Draught at the brewpub in Singapore
Dark brown color. More than roasty, chocolate or nutty character, these dark malts give a dusty character to the beer; the bitterness is rather low.
Simple.

Tawandang Lager
Draught at the brewpub in Singapore
Cloudy deep blond color.
Pleasant crispy malt aroma, but too weak and dry body, the malt has a paper accent; low bitterness. Easy but not flawed.

Tawandang Weizen
Draught at the brewpub in Singapore on July 9, 2013.
Sampled first, then had the "buy 1 pint get 1 free" offer with this beer.
Hazy yellow color, small white head. Sweet, fruity, phenolic scent. Sweet, banana, fruity, clove taste. Dry aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
Out of the three beers available this was the one who inspired most, which unfortunately don’t say all that much. Decent.

Draught (sampled) at the brewpub in Singapore on July 9, 2013.
Hazy dark brown color, brown head. Sweet, malty, grainy, hints of toffee scent. Malty, dry taste. Dry, mineral, sand like aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.
Swedish saying "Inte mycket att hänga i julgranen" suits this one rather well, not bad, clean and all, but where’s the life and charcter of the beer?

Not very interesting or really any character either, fairly bland and boring.

Tawandang Lager
Draught at the Rama III location. F me, I take what feels like an hour long taxi ride to this place to escape the pale lagers and end up liking this the most. Hazy amber. Nose of light snappy floral hops, flavour is honestly horse blanket, for some reason I get that from unfiltered lagers. Finish lasts. More similar to the kellerbiers I’ve tried than any pale lager. Sat next to the taps, this was 90% of their pours, but it’s not only because it’s the most similar to the ubiquitous yellow fizz here, it’s just a really good beer imho.

Tawandang Weizen
Draught at the Rama III location. Love the commercial description. Mainly esters here and not many phenols, with a strong banana scent and flavour of course. Sweet, no tartness. Very fresh, As JorgeLee said this is on the way to being a wit; possibility there’s unmalted wheat in here. Simple, but good.

On tap at the crazy brewery in BKK. Always hilarious times people watching in there! Sweet cherry bark flavor with mild plum fruits, good malt, and incredibly smooth dunkel, and one of the better beers you can get in most of Thailand...

Tawandang Dunkel
Draft @ Singapore brewpub. Muddy brown with orange tint and a stable head. Immature dark malt aroma is husky but I don’t mind that. Soft palate is thick and yeasty. Remains husky but nice nonetheless with sweetish bread malt character.

Tawandang Weizen
Draft @ Singapore brewpub. Cloudy pale yellow, paler than the lager. Decent stable head. Aroma tainted by some pedio and dirty sock sourness. Thin but soft palate with some fizz. Flavors are ok, some sweet wheat malt character. Finishes with a nice wheat/fruit balance. OK.

Tawandang Lager
Draft @ Singapore brewpub. Hazy milky yellow with stable, tight head. Kit beer aroma, but smells like a well-made kit beer. Predictable formulaic feel, predictable yeast character. Some freshly cut orchard fruit esters. Fizzy palate. The malt character is decent but is way too yeasty. Nice dry, floral finish indicating good hopping. Not bad.

Lager not my favorite style, but after their marvelous Hefe i had to try this. Entirely adequate. Almost clear, lightly hazy, good draft head. Grassy lager nose, classic lager floral hops. What else can I add? Worked well with spicy Thai food.

An unanticipated delight. Nose of citrus, banana, cloves ... a real hefe. Cloudy orange with a huge white head. This is starting to get interesting. Taste of banana and cloves and lemon ... about as good as a hefe can get, and perfect for the humid hot sticky Singapore evening and perfect with the moderately spicy and wonderfully complex Thai dinner. What a wonderful surprise. Thanks Tobias and Irene for finding the place.
