Lookswise, this is a typical wheat beer: deep orange, minimal head, and this one had very little lacing. The smell was something different though: very grassy with clove and spice, and sort of... mouldy. This was but a hint of the bizareness to come with the taste. This beer had an incredibly earthy taste, which immediately reminded me of game meat. Besides that there were strangely long lingering aftertastes of bubblegum, clove and grain: such complexity in the aftertaste is somewhat strange. This beer was certainly unique, but I have to wonder if mine had gone bad, despite being in date. In the mouth, it was somewhat prickly with some later stickiness. In sum, I'm yet to try a Krombacher beer that I've enjoyed, and I have to rate this weizen's drinkability as pretty low. I might try it again in the future, just to be sure I'm not being to harsh on a beer that has gone stale.

Appearance: An opaque, hazy deep gold color. Had a solid foamy white head that lasted a long time with excellent lacing.

Sent: Wheat and yeast with hints of banana, citrus, malt and clove spice

Taste: First cloves and banana then some spice and citrus.

Mouth feel: Smooth, medium body, dry finish with a bit of copper

Overall Impression: Might drink it at a party, but probably wouldn't pay for it again.

Considering it is a mass produced one: surprising, high quality, fun - and great money-value.
Cloudy, pale-gold colour with sexi head.
Light, cirspy to limited (and well balanced) extent, touch on nuts and lemon. Not the typical Weissbier taste, in a fun way.
Quite a reach taste for a mass produced beer. Very impressive.
Downside: smell - where have you gone too...? (should note: cigarrete smoke in the surounding may took it away).

Hazy apple juice color with a long-lasting foamy head. Smells sweet and sour. The taste is fruity and yeasty with a pleasant banana flavor note. This is one of two widely available wheat beers in Sarajevo (the other one is Erdinger) so I don’t have enough wheat beers to judge it against, but drawing on my memory this seems to be a true representative of the style, and a pretty good one at that. Anyway, a pleasantly tasting beer and a nice alternative to the ever-present bland pale lagers.

This is not a Weizenbier, just of joke version of it. Try a Franziskaner or a Weihstephaner, don't buy this one.

Drank from the only glass I could find at the time (Duvel) that brought out some subtle flavors, but still not much of a banana taste, which is a good thing if you ask me.

Refreshing summer time drink, if you like wheat beers, you'll not want to pass this one up.
