500ml bottle from Beers of Europe:
Bright amber with tonnes of fine bubbles rising to the surface, a large & foamy white head about 3cm tall that's got great retention too & a slightly cloudy body; excellent so far. It is light smelling with citrus, wheat & banana with faint clove at the end but it should be stronger. The taste is similar, lots of banana & wheat, touches of citrus pepper & cloves with a bit of yeast at the end but again it's light. It is well carbonated though with a medium body & sweet finish.

L- Mid amber I imagine, it's so cloudy it's hard to guage. That's despite it having been very well rested, a couple of weeks from purchase to pour. Impressive head, 5mm just off-white super-fine bubbles. [Holds really well, and forms lacing].
S- I could smell the Weisse notes on the pour itself - that's quite unusual they're noticable so early and clearly. Usual spice notes present, no need to elaborate.
T- A bit dryer on the front, hoppier, than expected esp for a 5.4%, then right into the above Weiss^ notes which are prominent, they need zero supping+seeking in this one. The taste also seems to have hints of fruit akin to apple.
F- It all comes together nicely though I don't get a sense of it's 5.4%, that's pretty shy here.
O- Very drinkable. If you wanted to demo a trad German Weiss on someone to showcase the spice notes in the profile this might be a clear example. I enjoyed this, I just wish it had a bit more of a commanding character for it's ABV%.
500ml bottle, BB: 29/07/2021. Bought from BeersOfEurope/UK for home delivery.

Although it is one of the better samples in the Brewer's Advent Calendar from Costco, this nice wheat beer still suffers from bad can.

Huber Weisses Original pours a deep golden with nice foam, fizz and lace. The aroma is subdued but fresh. The taste is a nice wheat malty taste with some hops, overpowering a metallic can taste. The yeasty overtones are slightly fruity and funky. It lingers a bit metallic, but still superior to the others from the collection that I've tried thus far.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden yellow, with a moderate, persistent white cloud top head. Elegent Belgian-style lacing adorns the glass walls. Small streams of fat bubbles drift lazily to the surface.

Aroma: Wheat malt, white bread, faint cloves, mild phenols, a hint of white pepper, and a mild spicy note, not quite of cloves, define the aroma.

Taste: Opens with hints of overripe banana, soon followed by white bread malt. There are also faint hints of citrus rinds, more of a suggestion, than a presence. The relatively high ABV of 5.6% does not give itself away. Late in the taste, there are hints of bitter apple rind. Finishes with a mild grassy hop note.

Mouth feel: Soft, full, and pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A quite decent and drinkable example, well worth a try, or two.

Presentation: Packaged in a 500 ml, 16.9 ounce steel can, served in a standard Pilsener glass. Beer number fourteen (December 14th) from the 2017 Costco Advent Beer Calendar. Expiration date on bottom of can is 03/2019.

Another underrated beer on this site.

It’s important to pour this style correctly. I turn the uncapped bottle 3-4 times vertically then horizontally on the table 3-4 times. Pour down at an angle to 1/8th in Weizen glass. Swirl the bottom 1/8 gently. Pour the rest.

Excellent honey color with a 4F head. Good head retention.

Spicy, licorice aroma and taste.

Light body and very drinkable.

Quite enjoyable.

500 ml can (advent 14) poured into a hefe glass. A slightly hazy golden orange with one finger head that moves immediately to a thin lace. Aroma is clove, banana, and spices. The taste is right in line with the aroma. Medium carbonation and feel. A hefe worth a go.

Pours a slightly foggy straw yellow with two fingers of stark white head. Head retention is good with great lacing left behind. Aroma is pilsner, bread, and biscuit malts with a touch of yeast and clove in the background. It smells like fresh biscuit dough with a bit of clove and yeast in the background. Flavor profile is biscuit, and bread malts. Clove with a little bit of yeast add a little sweetness to the back end. Mouth feel is medium in thickness with a lightly fizzy, but otherwise smooth texture. Overall, a sweet, doughy beer that sips easily in both flavor and feel.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.

From the Advent box. Poured into a snulip. A hazy golden color with a two-finger white head. Nice retention. Lots of bubblegum and banana, faint clove and wheat on the nose. The taste fell a bit below my expectations from the aroma. All the elements were there, but it felt a bit washed out and muddled. The feel was also thin. Medium carbonation.

Served in a pint glass from the can.

Appearance: Looks more like a lager than a hefeweizen, darker but very transparent gold color. Initially a thick white head rising about two finger's length dropping after the first sip wth very sticky lacing.

Smell: Banana skin, and super bland. Worst property of the beer.

Taste: After you let it sit for a bit there's a semi-sweet banana feel to the beer. Lightly bitter and touch malty. Lacks some complexity which I've had with other german hefeweizens.

Mouth: Not really sticky, and lacking complexity when placing the glass down.

Overall: Descent brew, i can think of a few better hefs for a lot cheaper. I got this from an advent calendar
