What can I say this is a very average Weissbier in a below Bavarian standard sort of way.

I found their Roggen-Weizen much more enticing because it has this sour quality which this one is lacking and it is pleasant really but somewhat unexciting and average...

The liquid is cloudy, there are some yeast particles floating around in the liquid. The colour is amber (23 EBC). The three finger head is pale yellow and airy. It sinks quite quickly leaving no lacing.

The smell got some fine wheat-sourish notes. Some banana candy and toffee/caramel. It is a bit dry.

The taste is overall smooth: Some caramel sweet flavours. Hints of minerals. The wheat character is quite low. The bitterness is low and somewhat metallic. Hints of rye/oatmeal bread. The aftertaste is smooth, almost light with some caramel, bread and phenolic notes of cloves. The finish is sweet and somewhat bitter.

The carbonation is light, the bubbles large and smooth. The liquid is a bit sticky and thick.

Bernstein-Weizen is a beer style seldom found outside of Germany. This one is smooth and pleasant, although the sweetness gets a bit mushy after some gulps.

Pours thick fluffy head, light and airy. Color is almost clear and golden. Aroma is faint but taste comes through crisp, elements of bread, citrus and licorice (?-faintly). CLose to a kristallweizen...

A decent but very typical hefeweizen. A bit thin but nevertheless very drinkable.

T:
-Banana and clove upfront
-honey with a definite buttery note
-biscuity w slight citrus
-undercarbonated
-sweet,pilsner-esque finish
O:
They did go overboard with the Pilsner malt in this.
At points this tasted more like a pilsner than a weizen.
Ok overall

This brew came in a limited edition tin. It's a nice looking tin, but adds to the price for one beer. I paid roughly seven US dollars for this hefe weizen.

Bernstein Hefe Weizen has an orange golden colored body, and is quite hazy and translucent. Large amounts of pale white head, which dissipates quickly for a weizen.

This is only slightly aromatic. There are hints of banana and bubble gum. There is nothing out of the ordinary here. Maybe a slight hint of orange aroma is also noted.

Taste’s quite light. There is a slight bubble gum flavor and an orange kick, but not very tasty. It’s actually kind of watery

Consistent with the hefe weizen category, and is quite refreshing. However, this is way too expensive for what I paid for.

Appearance: pours a cloudy amber with hints of light brown with loads of yeast particles. The foam is three fingers high but goes away quickly, leaving a small lid on the beer.

Smell: very pleasant indeed. Yeasty, wheaty and sweet at first. Bananas, caramel (as of condensed milk), vanilla and fruity sweetness.

Taste: light citrus acid, white bread, wheat sweetness, banana and caramel. Slightly metallic aftertaste with a sweat finish.

Mouthfeel: crisp with loads of carbonation, refreshing.

Overall: it's a nice beer with a good balance. Taste is nice, smell is nice, feeling is refreshing. Can't really complain about much. Doesn't hit the jackpot but it's very pleasant.

The beer is clear amber, medium sized bubbles, a high off-white head, no lacing, small curtains.

Sweet honey and apricots, spices and yeast.

Starting sweet bread, apricots and peaches, some apple peel, cardamom.

Little carbonation, soft and smooth, medium body.

Smooth, easy and a good relaxing brew.
