Got this beer from rvdoorn after he returned from his holiday to Slowakia. He was very positive about it, so my expectations were rather high.

A: Poored it into my Erdinger jubilee glass. Dark yellow color with a big bubbly white head that just slowly diminished.

S: Yeast smell is rahter dominant. Coriander is there, some orange and and a hint of banana.

T: It's a weizen for sure but I taste also similarites with the witte trapist of La Trappe (beig a different class of beer). Yeast, lemon, grape sugars, some hops and a slight bitterness.

M: Medium/high carbonation, creamy and a semi-dry mouthfeel.

D: Good.... but I'll be depending on rvdoorn for another round of this one.

Drank from my Weihestephaner weizen glass.

A - Pours a hazy Golden Orange colour with a two fingered head that reduces to a film and laces.

S - Not much on the nose except some sticky citrus.

T - Nice banana flavoutr and finishes witha sticky sweet citrus flavour.

M - Light to medium body and carbomnantion, true to the style.

D - I like this beer, but not over the major German varieties

On tap at Pivorvarsky Klub in Prague. Pours pale hazy golden with fluffy white head, very good retention and thick lacing. Quite active as well.

Smells like a fresh, German style wheat beer should. Bubble gujm, banana and clove balanced delightfully. Yum.

Tastes like the nose. They pretty much nailed it. Wow! I count myself as one who enjoys and appreciates a good German style wheat beer, but I don't remember the last time I enjoyed one so much. Sweetness and light hops add complexity to the yesty-wheaty goodness.

Nicely carbonated, creamy, smooth, crisp and clean.

Way too easy to drink, and wicked tasty. My guess is that it wouldn't be quite this nice from a bottle. Very much impressed. Well done.

I had few bottles of this, however fresh cag was the best

A: Strong golden to bronze colour with small head.

S: Oranges, forest fruits, lemons and some sugar. No alcoholic smell.

T: Fruity -- oranges, lemons, mangos, banana with spicy sub-tone of malt.

M: Medium body with low carbonation, comfortable after taste.

D: One of the best weises I've had. Genial for a beer garden.

Had this beer on a sunny day during my holiday in Slovakia. The beer pours a cloudy, yellow-orange color with an enormous fluffy, yellow-white head that stayed very long. Excellent lacing.

Smell: Sweet-fresh (a bit like orange), strong wheat, and spicy (clove)

Taste: Sweet (banana??), spicy (clove, which appears to the foreground when the beer warms up) and some typical wheat. There is some nice, very light bitterness in the aftertaste. The sweetness and bitterness of this beer are very well balanced.

Mouthfeel: Very very soft. Rolls the tongue, creamy and smooth. Medium carbonation.

What a good beer for the brewing style. Can easily compete with, or defeat, most of its German counterparts. Will never refuse another one.

It pours a wonderful marmalade orange with a slightly ivory head which disappeared rather quickly - a fact I am putting down to not owning a proper wheat beer glass and so drinking it from my Purkmistr glass.

Being a hefewiezen it is naturally cloudy, which is actually something I like in a beer, being a fan of kvasnicové beers.

The beer smells like oranges as well, ripe Seville oranges promising a burst of bitterness followed by a delicate sweetness, with floral hints from the Saaz hops.

In the mouth this beer is an absolute delight, tart, refreshing, with crisp bitterness, which doesn't overwhelm the palate, and again the motif of a thick cut orange marmalade.

There is a nice balance of medium sweetness with medium bitterness.

A: pours a cloudy, orangy yellow with a 2 finger white head that reduces to a thin film that leave a bit of lacing. Quite a bit of visible sediment.

S: banana, coriander and cloves on the nose with a nice citrusy zest.

T: very well pronounced banana flavour, yeasty, a touch of spice and an orangy sweetness that lingers on the finish - quite impressive for a Czech version of this German style

M: light and creamy witha good kick of carbonation and a smooth, refreshing finish.

D: Im quite a big fan of both beers I have tried from this brewery (This and their premium lager). This one delivers the true essence of a proper German Hefe and have some very nicely balanced and well pronounced flavours. I could definitely see myself drinking a ton of these in the summer time. Still, I would drink it all year-round. Very nice, very refreshing, well done Primator.

A czech Hefe is a cool idea and this is a nice take on the style. Lighter than most German versions but with a creamy smooth mouthfeel this is well made. The nose is not very prominent but the taste has the right banana and clove combination. I have had English style ales and mead like ales from Czech lately so I invite other styles than pils showing up on the shelf.

Overall a fairly average example of the Hefe Weizen style. Of course, I'll give compliments to Pivovar Nachod for venturing into relatively exotic territory in a country dominated by the big P. The color was pleasantly cloudy and tan, verging on golden. Its smell reminded me of pleasant Bavarian summer days and my first impressions were quite good from this offering. The taste, however was something to be improved upon. While I normally expect a fairly thick, but clear mouthfeel from the Hefe Weizen style, this beer felt almost like a watered down example of this. The taste itself was not bad in any way, but not particularly stellar either - a slight hop character mixed with heavy carbonation and a very minimal wheatiness. Still something that I'd occasionally go back to, but not one that I was overly and positively impacted by.
