500ml bottle served into a mug/stein hybrid glass in Berlin, Germany. Reviewed from notes taken in June, 2011.

A: Six finger head of nice cream and thickness, darkened white colour, and good retention. Lovely orange-copper colour.

Sm: Orange citrus ester hops. A moderate strength aroma.

T: Hoppy fruit orange citrus esters ride atop a pleasant wheat body. Nicely complex for the style; it's usually more simple. Built well for the style. Standard ester choices. It'd be nice overall, but it's almost watery.

Mf: A bit stale, or at least old. Doesn't match the taste. Very awkward to the point of ruining the beer. Smooth and wet enough, but a bit bland. Could certainly be improved.

Dr: Fairly priced, average quality, and almost a bit watery. Try it, but don't expect too much. The mouthfeel needs serious work.

Light aroma of apricots and banana. Tall, dense, off-white head leaves some nice strands of lace. Hazy, glowing tequila sunrise colored beer. The flavor is just missing. A touch of citrus flavor and a hint of banana on my breath afterwards are all the flavor there is. The most dominant flavor is the carbonic acid. I didn't think it was possible to make a bad Hefe Weizen, but this one has me thinking otherwise.

Got this at Bert's Huis in Utrecht.

From a bottle into my Weizen glass.

APPEARANCE: Golden orange in colour. Very clear for a weizen, closer to a kristallweizen but not advertised as such. Medium carbonation evident. Pours a medium white head that is relatively thin and doesn't retain overly well. Levels out to a film and leaves some lacing. Looks okay, but not like a top weizen.

SMELL: Mostly wheat malt in the nose. That's it. Not overly strong and not as complex as I've come to expect from the style. Pleasant, but not worth writing home about. Below average.

TASTE: Some wheat malt initially and a bit of sour bread in the aftertaste, but nothing overwhelming. No off flavors, but nothing worth noting. Could be stronger and more complex. Again, slightly below what is expected for the style.

PALATE: Medium body and slightly creamy. Goes down smooth, no bite, and finishes with an appropriate amount of stickiness. Carbonation is on the lower end of the spectrum. Nice feel.

OVERALL: A decent weizen, but nothing special. I'd expected more from this brewery, which makes some great lager beer. Actually, their weizen seemed to be influenced by their lager beer, which made it less of a great weizen. There are better out there. As a final note, the oddly shaped bottle made it impossible to do the traditional weizen pour. That took something out of the experience as well.

Clove and banana, like any good German Wheat should have, tart, with a dry-ish finish, also got a bit of vanilla or something, pretty nice, easy to drink, nothing over the top. Definitely not one of my favoured German whaets but very drinkable anyway, pretty nice stuff.

Amber-orange colour. Classic weizenbier foam.
The smell is typical: banana and cloves. Even orange, and light spices.
The taste it isn't so typical, like the colour... It's more "dark" and winding. Wheat, yeast, but even a light note of caramel. And a litlle astringency in the finish.
Medium body, good drinkability. Quite good weizen.

A Orange color with a good sized head. It has decent retention and looks good.

The beer has a banana smell with the usual bready yeast smell. The beer is quite carbonated and has a fruity taste to it. The taste in the wheat beer seems to be rather lacking. There is a bit of bitterness that I wasn't expecting. It tastes alright, but I'd choose many other German Wheat beers over this.
