3.15/5  rDev -6.3%

Swing top bottle.
Hazy apricot amber body with a decent head.
Body is a bit thin even for style and despite adequate carbonation.
Light flavor from both the yeast and the malt components. Balance leans a bit more towards the malts than the yeast. Highlight: the nice nutty finish and aftertaste, with a hint of hazelnut.

1pt .9 fl oz brown bottle with flip top

Kaiser Brau Veldensteiner WeiBbier changed the color of my clear weizen glass to a cloudy "dirty" gold color producing a 1 1/2 finger white head that held well. Streaks and spots of lacing remained as I consumed the ale. The light nose was dominated by a mild banana and orange citrus aroma. The taste was similar to the smell with a slight clove spice in the background. The finish was a little dry and crisp with a lighter mouth feel for a hefeweizen.
Overall, Veldensteiner WeiBbier is an easy drinking hefe due to its lighter less rich flavor
There are more flavorful [German] hefes available.

2.43/5  rDev -27.7%

A - Huge foamy white head with great retention and lace. Light haze on a golden straw body.

S - Green banana, strange acrylic twang, sweet wheat.

T - Lightly sour, thick wheat, lemon highlights. Green vegetable aftertaste.

M - Light frame with an almost syrupy finish.

O - A below average hefe with a lot of off-notes. Save your money for a better brew.

Got a lot of these at $2 a bottle on a steal! Poured into a weizen glass.

A - Pours a murky orange-straw yellow. Massive frothy pale head. Give the glass is rather thin, this head is over a full finger length. Awesome retention and nice lacing.

S - Clove. citrus and a bit of funk. Makes me appreciate the greater hefe's from Ayinger and Weihenstephaner.

T - A bit of dank fruit upfront, some lively yeast and thin wheat malts. Not really exciting.

M - Light body with above average carbonation.

O - A boring, musty, hefe that I was really expecting better from. I don't expect to ever have this brew again.

3.15/5  rDev -6.3%

Pours a cloudy golden orange color with straw yellow edges and a two finger frothy, pillowy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks and large spots of soapy lacing left behind.

Spicy aroma with a prominent clove presence that's countered by bready yeast, banana and citrus rind. The yeast character is really strong ith lots of bread and banana that overpowers the spice and orange peel notes.

Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a zesty spice flavor that lingers over the yeast, banana and citrus notes into a slightly dry, tart finish. Strong clove presence up front that's quickly countered by prominent bread and banana notes. Tart orange peel sweetness in the finish. Overall this is an average example of the style. It has all of the traditional characteristics but the bread/banana/yeast presence is too strong for my preference overpowering the other flavors.

Hazy tarnished brass color with golden highlights. Bright white head. Smells oddly of sweet dark fruit and burnt pizza crusts.

Very strange beer. Tastes like it could be a dunkel but someone lightened it up with something. Light and crisp with a burnt caramel note. Semi-spicy finish.

This beers done wrong. Tastes like a dunkel and looks likes a weiss.Either the importer hasn't taken care of this beer, or its a bad beer from the start.

On tap at the Castle Burg Hotel in Neuhaus Pegntitz, Franconia - tap house for Veldensteiner beers in the same town where it is brewed

Served into a tall Weissbier glass bearing the Valdensteiner name as you would expect!

hazy yellow in colour with typical clouding for weissbier and a fair sized head of around an inch

tastes were of slight barley, fairly sweet but not too so, also slight spice and citrus coming across

Not the worlds greatest Weissbier but a decent enough effort!

3.13/5  rDev -6.8%

Beer pours a cloudy yellow in color into my Amsterdam weizen glass with a noticeable amount of carbonation that is visible from the rising bubbles. Smells of clove, spice notes, coriander, and banana. taste is very similar to the smell but weaker on the flavors; little bit on the bland side. light-bodied on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. Dryness on the finish. Overall, a decent hefe but I think there is better out there.

2.85/5  rDev -15.2%

.5L Bügelflasche, best before 10/21/11.

Pours cloudy light straw-orange with a nice head. Not as persistent as some, but still fluffy and creamy, with some lacing.

The aroma is spicy and lemony, with a background of raw yeast.

The flavor is kind of watered-down. Some hints of clove, coriander and other spices, along with a nondescript fruitiness. Tastes kind of like a Witbier meets Hefeweizen, though not convincing. Lightly sweet and yeasty. The mouthfeel is well-carbonated, but comes off harsh and drying on the palate.

An average Hefeweizen at best.

Ok, not gonna lie; I got this beer mostly because of the bottle. But it works out because of the hefeweizen kick I'm on now and it's something new.

A- Light golden orange with a decent white head that quickly dissipates into an equally decent ring of lace.

S- Not a whole lot of smell, but what there is is sort of a sweet, nondescript fruit aroma. It's a bit like sweet pears or plums with maybe a little of the traditional banana and clove aromas. Not bad, but I really wish it were stronger.

T- Some sour malt and a grassy hop character. A little bit of banana and some powdery yeast, but not much else. Not bad, but pretty bland.

M- Fairly light with a good dose of prickly carbonation.

Eh, it's pretty so-so. Nothing stands out as "bad" about it; there aren't any off flavors or anything. It's just bland. I mean, it's probably a good quencher for a hot summer day, but that's about it. You can do better, and at a lower price too. I probably won't be getting it again.

a very old bottle that held up...

drink by 16/09/10 posted...

nose when popped is at first and foremost almond/marzipan. that fades rather quickly and is replaced with a stale banana fruit... but this even dissipates. it takes a bit. the pour is beige with a good carbonation. great for the age. palate once dissipated is actually similar to the pilsner in hop character once its gotten old. a bit floral subtle. more so sweet like a belgian malt liquor sweet. brown sugar and honey. not overpowering but very much so the predominant.

would like to try fresh... on the helles hef side i would figure.

3.53/5  rDev +5.1%

500 ml swing-top bottle. Served in a weizen glass, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with a two inch frothy white head. Head retention is pretty good, but there isn't much lacing at all. Aroma is cloves, banana and wheat. Nice smelling brew. It tastes like wheat, cloves, and a bit of bubblegum. Not as nice as the aroma, but still decent. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth and is well carbonated (maybe a bit too much). I think it's a decent brew, but not one of the best hefe's I've tried. With that being said, it's worth a try.

Tried this at the Split Rock Beer Fest on 11-21-10. They had a bunch of the Veldensteiner bottles there and I knew that I'd never tried any of them so I made sure to get them all under my belt. This ended up being a pretty standard Weissbeir. Cloudy yellow color, Banana and clove on the nose. Little on the flat side. It's was ok.
