Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Cloudy orange-yellow pour with a foamy white three finger head with great retention and lacing. The nose is earthy and grainy, but largely absent of any of the typical Weizen characteristics. The taste is much the same. Grainy and malt forward with hints of caramel, wheat, subtle orange, a touch of lemon, and brown sugar. The mouthfeel is a bit heavier than a typical Weizen and absent the refreshing crisp carbonation. Overall, way off style wise in my opinion, and nothing really memorable. I think it would be a great beer to serve with a meal, but probably won't revisit...

Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma is mostly malty with some light yeast esters. Taste starts tart, slightly astringent, like fermented grains. This has definitely some brewing faults.

An murky, orange beer with a big head, which collapses after several minutes. Lots of carbonation.

Smell is phenolic with grainy wheat and some slight banana smell. No cloves in the smell. The beer has a rather pilsner-like smell, meaning malty and somewhat sulfuric, like the yeast is not a Weizen yeast.

Taste is phenolic with hints of cinnamon and anise and has a light wheat base. There is a graininess, but not as outspoken as other Weizens I had. Again I detect some pilsner-like characteristics, a little sulfuric and a matching mouthfeel. I feel this beer doesn't have enough wheat malt in there and uses the wrong yeast to really call it a Weizen, but for sure it makes a nice beer and I rated it as such.

BB 08-05. No overwelming head but quiet lasting. Beercolor is gold to orange and litle hazy. Nose is quiet empty remembering more of a helles then a Weizen it's supposed to be. Malty but more barleylike then wheat and hardly any banana or other esters. Nothing bad to detect but nothing great either. Taste is similar though litle body from malt and some orange flavour in it. Litle sweet and hardly any bitterness. Mouthfeel is not unplesant but lack of style and emptyness makes you mis something in this Bavarian Weissbier.

Pours beautifully with tall, rocky head, cloudy and bits of suspended particulates. Aroma seems a little off and sour, taste also slghtly sour, but hints of normal weizen flavors. I really was expecting better, this is just average, but also slightly different.

Oranged color, quite clean. Compact and creamy head. Beautiful.
The smell is quite atypical for a weizen, with some more floral, and hay.
Even the taste is in somewhat manner different. It has wheat, ok, but in somewhat "different". Even some hop! The hay again, and obviously yeast. Cane sugar (in the aftertaste too).
Medium body. The aftrtaste is maybe a little too dominated by the sweetness.
It a decent beer, but maybe not a classic weizen.
