This sample was purchased in Berlin, Germany.

Comes in a cool looking 33cl mini-swing top brown bottle with a best before date stamped on the rear label.

Classic weissebier appearance; cloudy golden straw, with dark amber hues in the center, topped with a sticky, pillowy, white foam head with ample retention.

Aroma on this sample is a bit musty, yeasty, with clove underneath and strong wheat husk in the nose; slightly twangy.

Luscious. Sweet banana bread in the malt, smooth medium-body and mouthfeel that glides and coats the palate. Caramel undertones. Clove and tea-like flavours push through the banana character with notes of floral and herbal. Wheat lends a touch of sourness to the flavour, with a mild twang and upfront crispness; a bit dry, too. And a touch of lemony citric acid adds another depth to the hops, while bringing some refreshment to the palate. Coarse finish, dry with wheat tannins that linger briefly.

A pretty damn solid weissebier. Expected and welcomed.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

33cl brown reusable swing-top bottle with a drink before date on the back label.

Apperance: Hazy yellowish golden with a few yeast particles floating around. Cropped white head stays as long as the beer is around.

Smell: Fruity and estery with some phenolics and spicy clove, fruitiness is of vague banana and tart plum. That trademark fermented wheat malt twang is there also.

Taste: Solid malt base with enough phenolic and spicy clove to balance, minimal hopping. Fruity with a tart plum character and banana in the back, estery with some higher alcohols as well show some wild hefe yeast activity.Finishes spicy dry on the palate.

Mouthfeel: Very crisp with a well textured carbonation in the modestly sized body.

Drinkability: Good enough to stand on its own as a beer to quaff though the night and complex enough to pair up with just about any kind of food ... very versitile.

Pours a clear golden color with minimal head. I would normally expect the unfiltered look for this style, but this one looks rather pristine. The aroma is straight banana with some what malt to back it up. No hop presence to speak of. Taste is well balanced with lots of fruity banana flavors that are kept in check by dry wheat malt notes. Mouthfeel is light and moderately carbonated. Overall, a well balanced hefe with nice bright yeasty fruit notes.

Sampled tonight on 1/18/14. Had this one back in 2012 once before. Comes in a nice 330ml (11.2 ounce) bottle with a ceramic stopper. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours a nice hazy apricot in color with a thin off-white head. Some spotty lacing was seen. The aroma is of sweet grassy grains with a hint of banana and citrus. The taste was very pleasing and much like the smell with a slight hint of cloves for the finish. Goes down easy. Perfect carbonation. No harsh or bitter aftertaste and is one of the better German 'Hefes'.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 33 cl bottle into a snifter.

A - A vivid wheaty-brown color with a medium head that laced the glass very well.

S - The smell wasn't too pungent. Hints of barley, wheat, clove, and other "warm" spices became prevalent from the get go.

T- An excellent balance of the clove and anise paired well with the IBU's the hops gave. Not too overpowering in one particular aspect. Carbonation was mellow, not too much of a mouth kick. Very enjoyable.

M- The mouthfeel wasn't anything to rave about. It's an excellent balance that doesn't leave too thick of a residue after drinking, nor gives too crisp of a feel from the carbonation. An excellent feel for a summers' evening.

O- Will definitely be buying again. At only $3 a pop, these easily became a staple for my summer drinking ritual.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 33 cl bottle into a weizen.

A: Very dark golden hue. Pours about a half finger, foamy, white head. No real head.

S: Wheat, fresh tea, and cola.

T: Pungent wheaty tone. Heavy on the cola. A little...walnut in there methinks.

M: Light body, a little punchy. Slightly bitter finish.

D: Session style.

Atmosphere is decent. Dark hue, nice head, but no lacing. Nose is only slightly reminiscent of wheat, with this cola thing much more prominent. Also, cola flavor is the most outstanding characteristic. Not bad, just not really a characteristic weizen. Overall, this is a pretty decent quaff.

Easily one of my favorite beers. The mouthfeel/ carbonation level was near perfect, and the taste was even better. This is an incredibly smooth beer, with tons of nuanced flavors. Flensburger is Superbly balanced with notes of spice, and an ever so slight banana aftertaste. To top it all off, the bottle is just plain cool.
