3.15/5 rDev -13%
I have passed these beers by for months, I actually thought this was some kind of orange-soda alcohol drink. Upon a little R&D I found this brewery that doesn't advertise, bottle, or even make labels.Simply an orange can that says "5,o"at the bottom, it is described as Weizen
An aggressive pour yields a light fluffy head, rocky, froth slowly settles down revealing a light orange-yellow murky Weizen beer. The color is deep burnt orange, a light tan around the edges. Damn good looking Weiss, and from a can.
A musty grain note is first in the aromatics, followed by fruity orange esters, peppery spiciness, grains, sweet malt/fruit. The aromatics are a bit sweet, but suprisingly have a nice balance of fresh orange, citrus, musty grain, and a light pepperiness to balance. But it really is lacking that special little "pop" of fresh fruity-yeasty spiciness that makes the "greats" (Weihenstephan..Andechs) really good
Flavor is pleasant, but not the immediate-amazing suprise I was hoping for. The carbonation is actually very low, making the beer feel almost flat on the palate. Sweet citrus, grain, pepper, yeast, finishing with a sweet fruitiness that isn't unpleasant, but not the most biting, sharp Hefe I've had.
Mouthfeel again is on the low-end of carbonated, actually making it a bit difficult to pick out different delicate flavors. It becomes a bit one-note, beginning and ending with malty fruity sweetness.
This is not bad beer, but it isn't great either. A much needed boost in carbonation levels would take this no-label "rebel beer" into a hard-to-find cult classic. Punks and old rockers are usually the ones I see drinking this brew. Maybe because of the breweries no-label "rebellion" statement..or maybe because it's 39 cents...

5,0 ORIGINAL WEIZEN
500 ml can, dated "22.11.14. 17 F31 24"
.39 euro @ KAUFLAND, Goerzallee 195, Berlin, Germany
Pours a hazy golden orange body beneath a creamy white head. For a weizen both the head retention and the lacing could be better, but both are still pretty good. The aroma is of banana, clove, and sweet dough. In the mouth it delicately bristles the tongue with a fine, median carbonation. The flavor is as the nose suggests it will be, with minor additions of a slight bit of citron and a minor tartness - both due to the yeast. It's mildly bitter, but not to the point of becoming sweet, only sweetish. It finishes with a dollop of sugar and soft white bread followed by drying acidity. Overall it's quite drinkable but in the end somewhat lacking, as if you had mixed half Bavarian hefeweizen with half Belgian witbier.
