Appearance : very nice light golden color.
Smell: slightly sweet wheaty aromas, very fresh smell.
Taste and mouthfeel : strong wheaty flavors, slightly bannana flavor and a dry end. Carbonation is good.
Price: economical.

A very respectable brew.

This beer pours a slightly hazy partly darkened golden with a nice lasting lacy head. It has a nice aroma of spice and fruit typical of yeasty wheat beers. It tastes of fine malts mixed with a nice fruity spicy tone. It goes down smooth with a bit of a dry finish. A nice hefe to try if you get a chance.

Appearance: Orangish, copper, cloudy body; small head

Aroma: Malty and peppery notes, but not overly complex aroma

Taste: Malty, spicy and smooth flavor. However, it wasn't complex. It was pretty good, though.

Remarks: Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

Not sure if this is the same beer, but this is the "Weiss" that is sold in Ukraine. Quite a nice surprise to have such a quality beer sold at Ukrainian beer prices (0.75 USD for 1/2 L.) The best thing I can say is that this is a very, very good imitation of the superb Schneider's Weisse. Is it as good? Almost - can detect a certain small level of unrefinement. Is it worth buying at 1/4 the price? To paraphrase a certain American politician, "you betcha!"

500ml can poured into a weizen glass by freshness date.

The pour forms thick white Hefeweizen head that stands by good retention before gradually collapsing to a layer of foamy lace, cloudy yellow amber color with medium visible carbonation in texture.

Big clove, caramel, bubblegum and banana are heads up also big bready malt and citrus zest in late participation.

The taste is well balance in mingling wheat malt, barley malt and hop. Yeasts also play well by yielding big clove touch in the lead along with banana, spice, bubblegum and citrus. Bitterness is left there by hop with a ghost-like quality.

Feel is rich, crisp, smooth and refreshing generating by firm carbonation within its medium body, very dry finish.

Precisely a good to go with any occasion, high drinkability and could be treated as good session beer.

Pours hazy light golden with huge and beatiful white head with excellent retention, thick lacing. Aroma is light wheat, citrus and some yeast.

Taste is a little subdued, but typical Hefeweizen, some wheat, banana, spices and yeast. Mouthfeel is refreshing light/medium with lively carbonation.

Overall, not bad at all. Could improve the taste a bit, but price/performance is unbeatable, I bought it for 29 euro cents (not including the bottle deposit) in a German supermarket.

500ml can

A- Light golden, very clear for a hefeweizen, but still quite hazy. Great and persistent head as usual when pouring in a weizen glass, not much lacing though

S- Light wheat with some citrus notes on the back, overall very much on the sweet side

T- Nor strong nor complex. Malts on the light side, with a slight bready hint. Then some lemon and bubblegum notes. A very sweet beer overall, even for a weizien

M- Light body and carbonation fit the beer's overall 'easy' feeling. Goes down smooth with nothing worth remembering

O- Among all the german Hefeweizens i've tried (and they are quite a few) this is probably the less interesting one. Being so simple and easily drinkable, it was not either so much refreshing
