4.9/5 rDev +33.5%
Bought swing top bottle from Central Market in Plano, TX
drank from my Weizen glass.
Appearance: Upon pouring the beautiful hazy golden body really got my hopes up. The head was fairly thick and persistent. Nice lite cream color.
Smell: My experience is limited so I can't put a name to all specific spices, but it certainly smelled like nice banana to me. In my experience this is always a good sign.
Taste: The first thing I noticed was how full it was. The banana gave way to a wonderful sweet wheat taste. It has a nice refreshing feel that finishes with just the right amount of bitterness. Nice and malty throughout.
I've been exploring Hefs for about 6 months now and this has taken the lead for me. Damn fine...Damn fine. If you're a hef fan you will not be disappointed.

Exceptional white beer. Actually the best one I ever drank. I will buy it often :)
It has a nice flip bottle and it is massive.
Smell is fresh banana and some honey.
The taste of it is sweet and very smooth.
Alcohol taste is not recognizable (but it is 5,1%).

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.

Best By 7-10-06.
Cloudy orange/yellow. Thick crop of pure white froth. Lace is full and comes in sheets. Great aroma of creamy vanilla, banana and a little lemon. This is a very good hefe. Mouthfeel is creamy, yet also has a nice little bit of prickly carbonation to it. Body is medium-full. Flavors come through as vanilla, lemon, banana and tangy wheat. A little bit of yeastiness and doughiness as well. This is a winner.

I bought this for the swing top for my homebrew as I am tried of choking down grolsch. Served in a Chicago Beer Society glass. It pours golden with a creamy head almost the consistency of a british beer. As a matter of fact it has the mouthfeel very consistent with a british beer as well. It does not have much carbonation and it is thick and perhaps buttery. The smell is fantastic, very banana. The taste is more savory with caramel undertones, with a hint of sweetness. It is similar to the hard yellow brach candles with some husk grain. Any booze in the smell is totally nonapparent in the taste. You could chug it down, but you'll want to savor it. Very good, very unique in all it's fantastic imperfections.

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'.

Poured into a goblet a deep orange with a thin head, aroma was hard to pick up (outdoors grill going) but just enough fruit and hops. The taste was very nice, the citrus and spice coming through with a smooth, hoppy, pleasant finish. I'll pick this one up again.

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.

A - Dark golden hue with white fluffy head.
S - Lovely smells of sweet citrus, banana, yeast, and even cocoa.
T - Like smells, but stronger. Reminiscent of a chocolate orange, with its slightly sour citrus notes and nice sweetness. It has nice strong bite and is very smooth.
M - Feels nicely carbonated for a Wiezen, with the nice light body.
D - Quite refreshing even when warm. Great Weizen.

I picked this up, along with the dunkel and pilsner, at my local. They were new arrivals, and I wasnt familiar with them. Looked cool so I thought I would give them a try. This Weizen is 12 ounces and poured into a weissen glass (at least I think thats the name of the glass). The bottle has a flip top that says pisht when opened. The date on the back says 07.10.06.
Apours cloudy, burnt orange with 2 inch fluffy off white head that turns into a pillow like blob, while the edges fizzle away, scattered lacing is produced
Sbanana is strong, wheat and lemon, mild alcohol scent as well
Tbanana is dominate, starts sweet and stays that way, I taste something else that Im not quite sure of it tastes like plain cooked pasta noodles. Its very tasty and going down way too easy
Mcrisp and light, light bodied, good carbonation
Da very good weizen. I would love another, but only bought one.

Flensburger's Weizen offers a beautiful appearance in the glass with a cloudy golden-orange body that displays very fine, effervescent bubbles rising steadily beneath a huge head of bright-white froth. The head holds exceptionally well and leaves nice, wide rings of lace about the glass.
The nose is yeasty, bready, wheat-like, banana-ish, apple-y, and clove-ish.
The body is medium-light with a very fine carbonation that's at first effervescent and bristly, but warms in the mouth to leave it creamy and smooth.
The flavor displays a delicate wheat malt that's threaded with tangy banana, a spritz of apple (and perhaps some melon), and a smear of spicy clove. It's backed by a firm bitterness and finishes with a delicate black pepper spiciness.

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.

Appearance- hazy dark gold. Strong lacing, of course I might have poured it wrong, I wasn't paying attention.
Smell- mellow and full of floral note. Citrus in the far back. A very good smell.
Taste- Very good!!!! Not to bitter at all. Buttery thick grains coat the tongue with hints of onion on the edge.
Mouthfeel- a little syrupy, with some sand..
Drinkability- not Coors light. But very easy to drink. No discomfort at all.
A great beer to drink with a hot dog.

A typical Bavarian beer comming from up north... hummm see how they make this specialty. Best before08-09-05.
Pours in great, giving you a very thick and longlasting head and a gold/orange looking beer thats totaly clouwded.
Smell is very typical Weizen-like with lots of banana and sour wheat. Taste if fully flavored too, creamy, malty, wheat and litle sweet. Then a good and clean aftertaste with just a litle bitterness and is mostly maltaromatic and sweet. Mouthfeel is as impressive as smell was. The carbon dioxide that's in massive even pushes the fresh and clean overalfeeling up.
Drinkability is good but maybe the CO2 will play parts if you drink more then just one or two. Good beer.
