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.

A: The color is slightly hazy pale golden while the enormously tall white compact but still light head settles after a while leaving nice lacings.

S: Ripe banana, but not overly sweet. Citric fruits along side with fresh cut grass. Yeast and a mild spicy smell completes the fruityness.

T: Surprisingly dry and bitter. Still very obvious a Hefeweizen with the ripe bananas and the spices (mainly coriander) as well as the yeast. A bit sour. Ripe oranges.

M: Aftertaste lingers with a bitter sourness. Body is on the thinner side and carbonation is rich - just as everything should be.

O: The germans sure know their Weizens. This is a nice north German Hefe with a little drier and less sweet feel.

Big blow-off when opening the swing-top. Settles down to a frothy light amber in the glass. Fairly spritzy on the tongue.

The estery flavors of banana and clove are in evidence. The clove seems to emerge more in the aftertaste after sipping a while. The body and general feel is pretty flabby. This seems rather sweet and bland. It seems to be lacking in the touch of sharpness that marks the Hefeweizens I prefer. Maybe it's all in the atmosphere-- a whiff of hot pretzels and some raucous singing might improve this. It's quite spicy in the nose but less interesting in the mouth.

The 33 cl bottle has the date of 11/08/13 on it. No alcohol content. Purchased at H and H Beverage in Abilene, Texas.
