A typical Bavarian beer comming from up north... hummm see how they make this specialty. Best before08-09-05.

Pours in great, giving you a very thick and longlasting head and a gold/orange looking beer thats totaly clouwded.
Smell is very typical Weizen-like with lots of banana and sour wheat. Taste if fully flavored too, creamy, malty, wheat and litle sweet. Then a good and clean aftertaste with just a litle bitterness and is mostly maltaromatic and sweet. Mouthfeel is as impressive as smell was. The carbon dioxide that's in massive even pushes the fresh and clean overalfeeling up.
Drinkability is good but maybe the CO2 will play parts if you drink more then just one or two. Good beer.

33cl brown reusable swing-top bottle with a drink before date on the back label.

Apperance: Hazy yellowish golden with a few yeast particles floating around. Cropped white head stays as long as the beer is around.

Smell: Fruity and estery with some phenolics and spicy clove, fruitiness is of vague banana and tart plum. That trademark fermented wheat malt twang is there also.

Taste: Solid malt base with enough phenolic and spicy clove to balance, minimal hopping. Fruity with a tart plum character and banana in the back, estery with some higher alcohols as well show some wild hefe yeast activity.Finishes spicy dry on the palate.

Mouthfeel: Very crisp with a well textured carbonation in the modestly sized body.

Drinkability: Good enough to stand on its own as a beer to quaff though the night and complex enough to pair up with just about any kind of food ... very versitile.

Appearance- hazy dark gold. Strong lacing, of course I might have poured it wrong, I wasn't paying attention.

Smell- mellow and full of floral note. Citrus in the far back. A very good smell.

Taste- Very good!!!! Not to bitter at all. Buttery thick grains coat the tongue with hints of onion on the edge.

Mouthfeel- a little syrupy, with some sand..

Drinkability- not Coors light. But very easy to drink. No discomfort at all.


A great beer to drink with a hot dog.

Gulp Gulp,

From Hipercor Huelva in Weiss Damm glass. Watching Sons of Anarchy 2x11. Amazing aroma. Taste is good, although I miss a bit more body

Poured a light orange body with cloudiness and good carbonation leading to a solid one-finger head that stuck around. Good smell of citric notes, mostly lemon, along with some spices and clove up front. A perfect wheat balance with some sticky sweet malts creates a thin-bodied but smooth, creamy, even somewhat sweet hefe that contains that classic sharp fruit taste and minor bitter hoppy aftertaste that is great. The spices perk up the beer too, as there is a good blend of pepper, clove and coriander. A perfectly sessionable german hefe.

330 ml fliptop bottle, bought in Germany. Hefeweissbiers have had quite a renaissance in Germany, so why not one from the Bundesrepublik’s northernmost commercial brewery too? Hazy golden colour, large white head. Lovely strong aroma of cloves and banana, some aromatic hops too. Flavour like an average hefe with a little more hops. Nice.

Beer comes in an attractive flip-top bottle. Beer is cloudy and yellow, nice head moderate carbonation. Looks like a hefeweizen.

Smells sweet and has those characteristic ethers you associate with this style. Smells awesome.

Beer is a little sweeter than I expected. A lot of malt is present in the flavor. Beer is really smooth and I'm really enjoying it a lot. Body is a little too thick for the style in my opinion. Overall a great hefe.

The plop of openening the top aroses the primal german in me. The smell, for me, is outrageous. There is a strong smell of bananna or rather laffy taffy. The appearance is a normal deep gold with lacey head. Mouthfeel is silky, but I am a sucker for this style of beer. Taste has a strong citrus taste in the front along with the normal banannas and clove tastes. But a mild but delicious taste paired with a very easy to open bottle would make these very drinkable.

(Served in a small weizen glass)

A- This beer has a hazy bright orangish-yellow body with a thick creamy head and a sea of tiny bubbles.

S- This beer has a soft wheat with a smooth hint of bubblegum. The smell is very smooth and complex.

T- The smooth wheat flavor with a white bread flavor has a slight bitterness from hops in the finish. The finish also has a carbonic acid bite that comes through as it warms. The wheat and malt flavor has a club soda note to it that is interesting.

M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a creamy texture but the finish is more of a light mouthfeel.

D- This beer has a nice complex taste but it is very light and subtle. Most German wheat beers feel like a meal in my stomach but this one is light and crisp and refreshing.

Appearance is a light, beautiful golden color. The smell is typical of a wheat beer, with a slight tinge of barley. Taste is very grassy and earthy that leaves little to no aftertaste in the mouth. Pretty smooth beer if drank while extremely cold. Comes in a beautiful old style pop top style bottle.

A-Darker golden hue with some opacity. Head is white, with thin retention after a light pour.

S-Wheat predominates (duh), with a hint of spices. I'm not getting much else.

T-It's got good wheat presence with some cloves and a hint of fruit at the sip's zenith. The fruit note is comparable to bananas or plantains, but I had to be patient for it.

M-This beer has a clean mouthfeel; not watery or insubstantial. The medium to high carbonation would be too much in heavier beers, but it's just right for the style.

D-I could probably quaff three of these and walk the balance beam like a champion. I may pick up some more as an accompaniment to spring and summer snacking. Flensburger Weizen would also be good alongside a lighter cigar or miniature.

Another random one I decided to crack open for no particular reason. Smooth and even head of white leads to light lacing on top of a golden straw colored body. Light aroma of bread, hints of light grains, pears, a touch of a hop note trickles in as it warms. Again very light feel, crisp, clean, refreshing and very well done I have to admit. Light taste of banana and smooth cloves and its all gone in just an instant.

Overall again pretty solid for the style, gotta give it up, I could do these all day long.
