4/5 rDev +4.7%
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.

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.

Apperance : golden color, with a creamy white head.
Smell : pear ester with a hint of clove (wheat in the nose)
Taste and mouthfeel : Light yeastiness on the palate with pear, banana, delicate spicy notes
Drinkability : a good beer in Hefeweizen style

500ml Bottle in Ahold Supermarket, Prague Old Town (17Czk):
Cloudy yellow, a large foamy white head & good retention. Nice lacing too.
Clove & banana, some bubblegum & a mix of sweet notes including sugar & background fruits. Citrus, in particular orange feature & the beer seems quite fresh.
Bubblegum, banana & clove dominate with orange & citrus plus some coriander around the middle. A traditional, German style taste with some nice sweetness & a touch of spice from the subtle hops that come through too.
Smooth, almost creamy with good carbonation & a lively feel. Spice & a light tang from the citrus helped the beer down & the body was a medium one.
A very good beer & as my first Czech brewed hefeweizen it didn't disappoint & could easily be ranked alongside some of the better German offerings of the style. I'll be picking up again if it ever makes its way into the UK.

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.

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.

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.

An impressive beer. Pours a gold cloudy color with orange subcolors. Carbonation is really good, stays fizzy all the way, and leaves a milky white, lacy head that stays with the beer. Smell is of fresh grain, perhaps slight citrus flavors. Taste is not amazingly complex, but it is bold and wheaty, tingling the tongue with hoppy flavors. Though Wiessbier is not my favorite style, this is one of the best of it's kind that I have had.

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.
