Drank from the only glass I could find at the time (Duvel) that brought out some subtle flavors, but still not much of a banana taste, which is a good thing if you ask me.

Refreshing summer time drink, if you like wheat beers, you'll not want to pass this one up.

3rd Birmingham pub of 18th September 2012 mini-crawl: The Barton Arms.

After a pint of Oakhams JHB I thought I’d have a change of direction and had a half-pint of this fine Weizen: it was poured into a small Krombacher Weizen glass and looked a picture. I enjoyed it just as much as I did its bottled version back in 2008.

Orange and misty look to it: strong aromas of vanilla, bananas and semi-sour citrus fruits.

Tasted just right; everything you’d expect in a good quality Weizen, but with a little bit extra thrown in. Flavoursome and perfectly balanced between tart bitterness and fruity refreshment.

Comes out of the tap a hazy honey-golden with a thick, pale honey head. Rich, nose-filling wheaty aroma has a firm citrus undertone that is sweet and mainly lemon. Rich, wheaty flavor has yeasty and sweet lemon tones and hints of orange and grass. Lively, fizzy, full-bodied texture completes one of the best wheat beers I have ever enjoyed.

50cl bottle poured into the branded Krombacher Weizen glass. Bought at beach front cafe in Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife.

A- Hazy orange hue, with a 3 finger creamy head siting on top, with excellent retention and lacing.

S- Yeasty! Staple banana and clove weizen smells, hint of vanilla.

T- Fruity esters of banana coming through well to a nice soft bittering finish. Lingers well.

M- High carbonation and light body.

D- Lovely to look at and a pleasure to drink with refreshing carbonation and good flavour profile.

-Appearance 4.0: No head to speak of. Very attractive beer in the glass, however. A deep golden color, but opaque and somewhat cloudy. If I saw this beer poured in a glass, I would drink it without knowing what it was.

-Smell 4.0: Wow. Delicious bouquet of yeast, sugars and barley. Somewhat a mid-level scent but very appealing.

-Taste 4.0: Front is somewhat sweet and the middle is vaguely citrusy. Finish is yeasty and has a delicious (and unexpected) light flavor of...vanilla. It must be noted that the finish is also dry and there is almost no aftertaste at all.

-Mouthfeel 4.0: Mid-to-high level of carbonation in this beer, but it is an excellent complement to the flavor of the brew.

-Overall 4.0: Excellent Weizen/ weiss beer. How do you know when you are making an excellent beer that is completely indicative of the style? When it perfectly embodies the style. Krombacher perfectly embodies Weizen. Recommended.

Krombacher Weizen has a thick, creamy, cream-colored head and a bubbly, very cloudy, yellow-orange appearance, with some good lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of white wheat bread, some coriander, and a faint citrus. Taste is of light lemon, white wheat bread, a touch of coriander, and the faintest banana undertone. Bitterness is low. Mouthfeel is medium, and Krombacher Weizen finishes refreshing, dry, and easy drinking. This is a good beer.
