This beer was purchased at Cyclone Liquors, in Ames, Iowa. This beer was very cheap but worth every penny. I am a big fan of Weizen beers and I drink a lot of them. For a cheap Weizen this is a really good beer. It is light in color and easy to drink. It is not to strong, but just right. I recommend this beer to any type of drinker.

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.

3.38/5  rDev -7.4%
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.
