My bottle is different than the photo as it replaces the Polish Pszeniczniak with the English Amber Wheat.
(This alone is a huge improvement for people like me who find Polish to be completely impenetrable.)

Amber Wheat Looks great (full of foam that becomes a coreograph of active swirling protein for few minutes... then calms.)
Smells drop a notch as I get the wheat and citrus/lemon, but I miss the style's typical hefe-banana.
Tastes drop further as this really cannot match the rich complex, flavors of the yeast Bavarian masters, often, inherited.
It sits in my mouth OK, but the wheat makes it wonderfully soft.

I Had Amber with lunch of a burger with mustard sauce. Went fine.
Since this was my first from this Browar, I went on their website and can honestly say that if it weren't for the pictures I would have no idea what was being said.

Pours hazy, pale yellow in color with one inch head. Taste is bananas, cloves and wheat. Medium bodied, sweet with moderate moderate carbonation. Tasty solid wheat beer.

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color—too hazy to see if there is any visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that slowly died down and consistently left a quarter finger high layer of bubbles covering the surface and thick specks of bubbles clinging to the edges of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of banana-like yeast are present in the nose along with notes of wheat.
T: The taste follows the smell and has a blend of banana and wheat flavors. No clove-like spices are perceptible.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a very good balance between the banana and wheat flavors in the taste.

Note: Bottle labeled as "Amber Wheat"

Looks like an IPA, great foam consistency, not too airy...

Aroma is very West Coast IPA like, without the bitterness.

Quite wheatey, not a fan. Tastes like banana juice mixed with hot cross buns

Pours a cloudy maize color. One inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of coriander, slight clove, wheat, and slight pale malt. Fits the style of a Hefeweizen. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with a high carbonation level. Tastes of coriander, slight clove, wheat, hint of hop, and slight pale malt. Overall, decent appearance, average aroma, body, and blend.

I'm trying a few beers from eastern Europe tonight, this being the first. Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a very cloudy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of bananas, cloves. Taste is wheat, some banana, a bit of an unusual, green apple like flavor as well. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

A cloudy gold - a bit ruddier than a typical Hefe but worked. Creamy white head but no lacing.
Smelled of bananas and cloves in a straight forward way each being distinct and separate.
Again straight forward here flavors with a nice mild hop finish.
The feel was a bit watery.
Lacked the ethereal qualities a top shelf hefe has but for the price this is a very good value beer.

Cloudy orange, excessive foam forms crags and peaks, sticky clumps of lace all around the glass.

Aroma is wheaty and a little bland, sweet with and artificial lemon note.

Tastes like cream of wheat, very smooth and creamy body, light trace of banana. Light to medium bodied, mellow carb level. Overall it's ok, sort of like Hacker Pschorr I guess.

Color light yellow, straw, a little cloudy.
Head very large, massive, white.
Intense aroma, dark bananas, yeast, slightly acidic.
The taste is the same as the aroma. Slight bitterness, very delicate, well hidden alcohol and low saturation. As for me, Amber Pszeniczniak deserves another "meeting".
