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.

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

Very cloudy yellow colored beer with a medium sized white colored head.

Highly aromatic, strong on the banana and lighter on the clove scents. Medium level of medicinal smelling phenols. But this beer just plain smells like a banana.

Semi-dry with a strong banana taste. Clove is stronger in the taste than the scent but this is still a banana tasting beer.

Overall a Hefeweizen I can recommend.

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.

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.
