After the obligatory swirling of the 50 cl bottle with the last quarter of the beer to get all the hefe (yeast) into the glass (I absolutely love it when they do that in a restaurant!) I got about an inch head that slowly disappeared into a thin layer of small bubbles. The color is a misty yellow, typical of a hefe Weizen. The smell isn't very strong, some sweetness and the everpresent banana. The taste had something metallic in it that I couldn't place and certainly didn't appreciate. It remained in the aftertaste. But there was plenty of CO2. All in all not a bad Weizen but there are many better than this brew.

Smooth, grainy, and pretty sweet. I guess this beer is OK if you enjoy chewy, wheat laden beer. This one has a cloudy pour with lingering foam and a steady stream of carbonation. Has a hay-like, honey-orange disposition with a light metallic after taste. There are better wheat concoctions out there.

Hazy amber orange color with lots of head with good retention.
Aroma of banana yeast and cloves.
Flavor initially seemed to have more barley malt than usual. Taste of bananas and over-ripped oranges and condiments. Dry aftertaste and mildly bitter.
Medium body with good carbonation.
Kind of positioned nowhere between drinkability and complexity choices. I believe there are better options, even local ones.

A: Pours murky golden with a large white compact head that slowly sets into decent lacings.

S: Sweet malt and loads of wheat, gives the ripe banana. Some citric notes lures in the back. Also a bready backbone.

T: Rather mellow for a Hefeweizen, not too strong flavours. Ripe bananas and bready malts.

M: Aftertaste is short but a little bitter. Body is medium while carbonation strong but smooth.

O: A above average Hefeweizen, but not too exciting.

I have had this a few time in Korea where it is packaged and market as Wabar Dunkel but it is Oettinger.

Appearance- Standard hefe, cloudy and gold with a fluffy white head.

Smell- Bananas, spice and everything nice.

Taste- Follows the nose, A litte bit of tartness that is not usually in a hefe

MF- Medium body slight carbonation

Overall-Ok hefeweizen. I was told by a German at the bar that in Germany it is a super cheap beer for a person on a budget but it is still better than much of what is sold in Korea.

Pours a cloudy yellow color with a nice head. Nose is banana and a lot of bubblegum. The taste follows suit. Opens up with with a little bit of spicy citrus flavor, which moves on to softer banana notes. A little bubblegum is present on the backend, but really explodes on the exhale. The mouthfeel is a touch on the watery side, but it is full. Overall, this is a solid hefeweizen. I found it strange I had to come to Central America to hear of this/be able to try it, but I am glad I got the chance. This hefeweizen provides a nice break from the Central American dull macro-lagers.

500 ml bottle, bought in Germany. This beer is brewed in Oettinger’s brewery in Schwerin. Pale golden colour, slightly hazy (less hazy than many other hefes), large and fluffy white head. Aroma and flavour have some some of the traditional hefe characteristics (banana and cloves), but to a weaker degree, and there are also some soapy elements in the aroma. I tend to like nearly all hefeweissbiers, but this one definitely belongs in the lower end of the scale. Still drinkable and refreshing.

Hazy golden brown color, nice creamy head - didn't fly off the handle but still had good stick and lacing. Fairly citric note, good blast of yeast, a little clean but a good start overall.

Actually much more phenolic banana, a somewhat biting citric and estery yeast note toward the end. Good bitterness. Not a super strong flavor either, but treading the middle. Finishes crisp, lots of carbonation, fair blast of coriander in there. Pretty solid choice, grab one if it's affordable.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a straight pint glass.

Pours a hazy golden colour with quite a nice white head.

Smells fairly yeasty.

Tastes okay, with that classic sharp hefeweizen yeast flavour up front but then some nice smooth and refreshing wheat flavours too, with a hop bitterness on the finish.

Overall quite a nice beer, slightly lacking in character and bit plain though.
