Flensburger Weizen has a thick, off-white head, a hazy, highly bubbly, deep gold appearance, a descending yellow-gray cloud, following the "swish & pour", and minimal glass lacing. Aroma is of banana, bubble gum, nougat, wheat bread, and wheat bread crust. Taste is of the same, with honey notes. Mouthfeel is fluffy and full, and Flensburger Weizen finishes medium dry.

Pour slowly and leave some in the bottle or else you will get much more yeast from the bottom of the bottle than you may want.

L: gives a hazy orange color when I pour from the classic bottles. A small top of head that disolver rapid with decent lacings on the glass.

A: wheat, banana, lemon,cloves

T&F: starts off sweet and fruity, both the sugary sweetnes and the banana and lemon is very noticeable, the cloves and others spices takes more over in the middle and it finishes of with dry bitterness, aftertaste is decent and lasting and what I also like is that you not get that watery mouthfeel that some other hefes does.

O: a pretty good and drinkable wheat beer actually. Of course is far from some of the bavarian top shelf wheat beers, but all Inn all quite tasty and drinkable.

Hazy yellow pour; head isn't out-of-control like it is with many other weizens. Flensburger is very "to style," and leans heavily on a strong banana-clove flavour (stronger than many other hefes I've tried); where it differs is that it feels a bit thinner in body--not that that's necessarily a weakness. Quite tasty!

Slightly hazy golden amber color with a thick head with short retention. Below average for the style.
Aroma with notes of cloves, brown sugar and very mild banana.
Flavor with notes of wheat, lots of barley malt, overripe oranges, cloves, mild banana, yeast, honey, pears and apple juice. Dry aftertaste with a low bitterness, but very present for the style.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation.
This feels different from the traditional Hefeweizen, more malty a bit more bitter and sour with other fruits winning over banana.
