4.15/5  rDev +13.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

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.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Bottle Inspection: 07 10 06 best by (sampled 04 29 06)

Aroma: Yeasty banana, slightest sweet malt base, and just a touch of acetaldehyde.

Appearance: Short lived head of white on a hazy deep yellow.

Flavor: Sweetness helps this one out, but the same off hop (old, cheesy) flavor as the Pils.

Mouthfeel: Touch fizzy, medium thin body

Overall Impression: Eh, not bad, but few reasons to love it. I could at least finish this one, which I couldn’t do with its brothers.

4.18/5  rDev +14.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

Quite nice.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Aroma holds some slightly smokey notes at first and a bit of a hot dog water smell. Then some mild yeasty bannana aroma comes in. Cloudy yellow in color with a lasting thumb thick white head. More hot dog water in the fore and more mild smoked flavors...smoked like a little smokie..not like a Rauch. Very mild bannana notes. No spice or cloves. Has a smoked wheat grain taste that is pervasive and foreign to my palate.

I picked this up, along with the dunkel and pilsner, at my local. They were new arrivals, and I wasn’t 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 that’s 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.

A—pours 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

S—banana is strong, wheat and lemon, mild alcohol scent as well

T—banana is dominate, starts sweet and stays that way, I taste something else that I’m not quite sure of…it tastes like plain cooked pasta noodles. It’s very tasty and going down way too easy

M—crisp and light, light bodied, good carbonation

D—a very good weizen. I would love another, but only bought one.

Great unfiltered look. Nice thick head. Smells slightly of citrus and has a yeasty undertone to the nose. Drinks pretty well. Not quite as sweet as many weizen beir I have had here in Germany. It is a welcome change though. It is refreshing without being overly sweet. Great beer with traditional German food. Not my #1 Weizen, but worth drinking for sure.

A cool little beer that seems true to its style. From its flip top brown bottle, it poured a hazy, cloud of gold with an impressive white head. The head was well carbonated and stuck its lace well to settle to a quarter inch and maintained from that.
The aroma was citric wheat malt and spice. The taste was that of banana/citric with a balanced hoppy malt.
A good Weizen, though not my first choice in style, but Flensburger stayed true and dose a very drinkable and enjoyed good job at it.

The beer was poured into a pub glass.

Appearance: The beer pours a hazy coppery coloration with a ruby center. The head was creamy white about an inch with great retention. Good rings of lacing remains on the glass.

Smell: The beer has a great wheaty yeasty smell with lemony cloves.

Taste: The beer has a great wheaty lemony banana bread spiced with cloves.

Mouthfeel: This is a light beer with good carbonation. This is a very clean and slick tasting beer.

Drinkability: This is a very easy drinking and tasty beer. Just a dam good Hefe all the way around.

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.

Found in the "World of Beer" kiosk in north-central Moscow. I could have chosen the half liter or 1/3 liter bottles. I went small. Brown swing-top container with a yellow and gold label featuring a sailing ship surrounded by the name. Purity law applies, of course. Best before 9/8/05, I opened it on 7/23/05.

Poured a very cloudy orangish gold under a one finger white head that settled a bit too quickly, leaving just a few spots of lace. The nose is mild and very bready, with a touch of coriander. The mouth is very, very prickly and quite light, yet it somehow manages to be pretty sticky. Nice wheat flavor here, although a bit weak on the spiceyness. It is strong with malt, adding just a touch of refreshing hoppiness in the finish. There's a bit of fruit here, too, leaning towards the sour side. The strong aftertaste mixes bread, fruit and spice. A pleasant quaffer.

Tasted on 14th July 2005. A swing-top brown halb liter bottle, cost me €2.85 in Molloys, Dublin. Best by 06.01.05. ABV: 5.1%

Appearence; hazy amber body with nice white dense head. Classic weizen appearence.

Smell was almost nothing (very subtle, I mean!). I got a flashback of "old books" from somewhere.

Taste and Mouthfeel; quite surprising with an almost fizzy carbonation and a back-of-the-throat experience that was very pleasent. I expected a much blander sensation.

Drinkability; yes, I would certainly have a couple of these. This was a pleasent surprise.

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.

This poured to a cloudy golden yellow with a massive head that lasted well. There's a few bg clumps of lace.

The smell packs a fairly attractive combination of esters and wheat malt. The taste is somewhat course and very flavorful, bringing images of banana and lemon to mind. The mouthfeel is moderately crisp and the drinkability is great.

This is a good, solid beer.

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.

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.
