Poured a light orange body with cloudiness and good carbonation leading to a solid one-finger head that stuck around. Good smell of citric notes, mostly lemon, along with some spices and clove up front. A perfect wheat balance with some sticky sweet malts creates a thin-bodied but smooth, creamy, even somewhat sweet hefe that contains that classic sharp fruit taste and minor bitter hoppy aftertaste that is great. The spices perk up the beer too, as there is a good blend of pepper, clove and coriander. A perfectly sessionable german hefe.

330 ml fliptop bottle, bought in Germany. Hefeweissbiers have had quite a renaissance in Germany, so why not one from the Bundesrepublik’s northernmost commercial brewery too? Hazy golden colour, large white head. Lovely strong aroma of cloves and banana, some aromatic hops too. Flavour like an average hefe with a little more hops. Nice.

Beer comes in an attractive flip-top bottle. Beer is cloudy and yellow, nice head moderate carbonation. Looks like a hefeweizen.

Smells sweet and has those characteristic ethers you associate with this style. Smells awesome.

Beer is a little sweeter than I expected. A lot of malt is present in the flavor. Beer is really smooth and I'm really enjoying it a lot. Body is a little too thick for the style in my opinion. Overall a great hefe.

The plop of openening the top aroses the primal german in me. The smell, for me, is outrageous. There is a strong smell of bananna or rather laffy taffy. The appearance is a normal deep gold with lacey head. Mouthfeel is silky, but I am a sucker for this style of beer. Taste has a strong citrus taste in the front along with the normal banannas and clove tastes. But a mild but delicious taste paired with a very easy to open bottle would make these very drinkable.

(Served in a small weizen glass)

A- This beer has a hazy bright orangish-yellow body with a thick creamy head and a sea of tiny bubbles.

S- This beer has a soft wheat with a smooth hint of bubblegum. The smell is very smooth and complex.

T- The smooth wheat flavor with a white bread flavor has a slight bitterness from hops in the finish. The finish also has a carbonic acid bite that comes through as it warms. The wheat and malt flavor has a club soda note to it that is interesting.

M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a creamy texture but the finish is more of a light mouthfeel.

D- This beer has a nice complex taste but it is very light and subtle. Most German wheat beers feel like a meal in my stomach but this one is light and crisp and refreshing.

Appearance is a light, beautiful golden color. The smell is typical of a wheat beer, with a slight tinge of barley. Taste is very grassy and earthy that leaves little to no aftertaste in the mouth. Pretty smooth beer if drank while extremely cold. Comes in a beautiful old style pop top style bottle.

A-Darker golden hue with some opacity. Head is white, with thin retention after a light pour.

S-Wheat predominates (duh), with a hint of spices. I'm not getting much else.

T-It's got good wheat presence with some cloves and a hint of fruit at the sip's zenith. The fruit note is comparable to bananas or plantains, but I had to be patient for it.

M-This beer has a clean mouthfeel; not watery or insubstantial. The medium to high carbonation would be too much in heavier beers, but it's just right for the style.

D-I could probably quaff three of these and walk the balance beam like a champion. I may pick up some more as an accompaniment to spring and summer snacking. Flensburger Weizen would also be good alongside a lighter cigar or miniature.

Another random one I decided to crack open for no particular reason. Smooth and even head of white leads to light lacing on top of a golden straw colored body. Light aroma of bread, hints of light grains, pears, a touch of a hop note trickles in as it warms. Again very light feel, crisp, clean, refreshing and very well done I have to admit. Light taste of banana and smooth cloves and its all gone in just an instant.

Overall again pretty solid for the style, gotta give it up, I could do these all day long.

Flensberg Weizen
Plop!Pours a light hazy brnished tangerine-orange brown color. Nice head, light, yet thick, creamy, several minutes pass before it sinks down ino the glass, leaving rocky lacing.
Aromas of lemon, orange, mutsiness from the yeast,faint hay-like sweet graininess. light pepperiness, but the serious funky pepper-banana aroma found in the top Weizens is only a faint note in this brew. Light, subdued, maybe flavor will pick it up a few notches.
Flavor is a slightly bit more watered down than expected. That being said, it is still qite good. Leaning in the opposite spectrum of sweeter Weizens, this beer is tart, peppery, lemon accented, finishing with a good boost of carbonation and light tingling pepperiness. The light grainy note found in the aroma comes through in a nice biscuity background, giving a nice back bone to this beer. Quite nice.
The mouth feel is nice, pricking, and refreshing, given the low ABV and price, this has become a new session brew for me. Good find, as I had normally only seen the Pilsner. Cheers
