November 2007: 500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. Contract brewed for Weltenburger by Brauerei Bischofshof in Regensburg. ABV is 5.4%. Very pale straw colour, slightly hazy, huge head. Lovely typical Hefe-Weissbier aroma, notes of cloves and banana / bubblegum. The flavour has also banana and cloves, hints of lemons, light bodied, minimal hops.

500ml bottle.
L: Hazy, dark gold colour with several streams of bubbles rising to a couple of fingers of white head. No lacing.
S: Cloves, a hint of banana and some orange zest. Kind of light though.
T: Citrus is more pronounced in the flavour, although still not strong. Again there’s just a hint of banana and yeast to remind you this is a hefeweissbier.
F: Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, soft mouthfeel but some sharpness in the finish.
O: A pleasant, easy-drinking weisse. Not necessarily a standout in a category with a number of amazing German offerings but super refreshing and highly approachable.

Lable hasn't changed one bit since ^2002, good looking/trad.
L- Dark gold/lighter amber, pours with minor haze and 3mm white head.
S- Some spice notes, a bit bready.
T- Bready malts, quite toasty too, some of the usual Weisse spice notes. It has a bit more richness to it than anticipated.
F- Good for autumn, like a 'lager' but with more going on, more character and meat on it's bones.
O- Pleasant enough, but not really doing enough for me to warrant buying this again as a bit of a specialist import.
500ml bottle. BB: 31/12/2021 Bought from BeersOfEurope/UK for home delivery.

500ml bottle served in a pint glass. Stamped 325J1247, but I have no idea what that means.

Pours a moderately cloudy light amber color with a huge head. Had to pour and wait several times to get the whole bottle in my glass. Smell is banana, clove, light caramel, lots of yeast.

Taste is along the same lines, but milder. The banana and caramel come across more than the clove or the yeast, the yeast more than the clove.

Mouthfeel is light and airy. Overall, it's not bad, but probably not something I would seek out again.

Had this alongside a tomato, prosciutto, strawberry, and basil salad yesterday, and it was really good. I Would recommend it, based on that experience. It was also pretty clear. I wonder if that last bottle was old or something.

En vaso tiene una cabeza blanca amplia que perdura por unos buenos segundos. En aroma se destaca el trigo, el caramelo y una nota frutal. Ya en boca se percibe el pan, el platano y la vainilla. Es dulce, un poco seca y con un buen final.

Pours hazy orange beer with nice off-white head, long retention.
Smell - banana, grain.
Taste - follows the smell, rather plain, no spiciness, no clove.
Medium body and carbonation, dull and watery.

Small white head which leaves some streaks. Cloudy naturally with dirty gold color.

Strong banana aroma.

The taste is quite sweet almost as if banana was added. Lighter carbonation but with a fuller body. Refreshing on a warm day.

Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma has sweet malt and wheat and banana esters. Taste starts also sweet with wheat and banana flavors, finish is also estery but more astringent and slightly bitter on the aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation, not as effervescent as other hefeweizens. Overall it's quite good but not one of the best of its style.

A little underwhelming, considering some of the other magnificent beers produced by this brewery. Just average all the way around, in appearance, taste and aroma. Nothing special here....

This beer was nice. I came across it in a Rimping Supermarket in Chiang Mai. I enjoyed it. At first smell, I wasn't sure how it was going to go - it almost seemed bitter, which was surprising for a wheat beer. I noticed some other reviews said it was spicy among other things...maybe my nose is broken. In either case, taking a drink pushed the smell issue away because it was thoroughly enjoyable. I would get it again especially after reading some other reviews that spoke so highly of it.

10 Oct 2015. From Hipercor. In Paulaner glass. After dinner. Nice weissbier, with a thick body and good taste. However, it hasnt anything special either.

25 Jun 2021. De Hipercor. En almuerzo, con bacalao dorado del Mercadona + pollo guisado en taquitos casero. En vaso de hefe de Bavaria. Buena hefe, que entra bastante bien, pero le echo en falta algo más de cuerpo y expresividad
