2.95/5  rDev -11.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance is hazy yellow with white head around 2 cm.

The aroma is citrus, cloves, and banana. As expected.

The mouthfeel is slick, with much less carbonation than the usual hefeweizen.

The taste is much like the smell, but more astringent than usual. Very aspirin.

Not bad, but not the best hefeweizen I've ever had. Overall, I find it lacks punch and the aftertaste is much too aspirin for my liking.

3.71/5  rDev +11.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Cloudy wheat coloured body with tiny specks of white tiny bubbles dotted here and there but mostly around the edge of the glass

That sour smell that is so root beer and anti septic cream

Those notes on the nose are there on the taste with slight citrus and paracetamol flavours

Nicely spritely and easy drinking just great for the style IMHO

This seems like a lovely thirst quenching summer beer.

3.63/5  rDev +9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Hazy yellow golden with a medium head that disappears quickly.
S: Good intensity, apples, wheat yeast, clean and focused but nothing too exciting.
T: Better in the mouth, apples, citrus, a nice wheatiness, good concentration without too many perfumey esters. Nice hoppiness at the end.
M: Different than a German wheat beer, not as creamy, the bubbles are a little harder, but they back up the concentrated flavours.
O: I get the impression that this is not trying to be a German wheat beer, and for that reason I like it. It's a little crisper, with less esters. Nice.

3.23/5  rDev -3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

The beer is very clouded and has a murky amber nuance, an off-white head that settles quickly leaving rather good lacing.

The smell has orange and lemon with spices and some yeast.

The taste has an initial bitter orange marmalade sweetness, coriander and cumin, a coarse bitterness.

Medium high carbonation, rather refreshing despite the coarseness.

This beer is a bit uneven and does not feel mature.

3.13/5  rDev -6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A brown 50 cl short-necked bottle with a yellow label with a picture of wheat.

A: Murky pale orange with a white medium-sized head that dissipates rather quickly, leaving almost no lacing.

S: Oranges and ripe bananas - wheat (sweet). There is also yeast.

T: The wheat gives it a ripe-banana-taste. Oranges and green apples. Yeast.

M: Rich in bubbles, but in a rough way. Body is light. Aftertaste is rather short and bitter.

D: An interesting Swedish try, but far from what they make in Germany.

Not much wrong with the looks, perhaps the head is a little too small. But apart from that, the Wisby weisse has a nice hazy orange colour, just as it should be.

The smell is sweet and yeasty. Just hints of bananas and cloves are noticed.

The cloves and bananas are more present in the taste. I feel that the beer has something of a rough mouthfeel. The carbonation is mild.

As for drinkability it does not reach the level of the better German hefes. Not too bad for a Swedish wheat beer though.

2.75/5  rDev -17.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

The colour is yellow-orange with a tint of green. The liquid is hazy; the head is two fingers thick, compact and white.

The smell is yeasty and sour with fruity notes of green apples and dough.

The taste is a little milder than expected; as is the body. Yeast, wheat dough/bread, green apples and other fresh fruits. The aftertaste is quite short and mild, leaving just some sour notes of green bananas.

The carbonation is strong and robust; the liquid is a little harsh.

No, this one isn't as good as the German originals. I would have liked some more sweetness and body in this one.
