I had this beer while in Vallarta and was very happy with it. It can be hard to find. Poured from 12 oz bottle: Golden in color, smell of spices, flavorful crisp finish.

Clear golden color with a fluffy head with relatively short retention.
Light aroma with notes of cloves, orange citrusy, herbs and bread.
Predominant flavor with notes of fresh oranges with its peel, yeast, white bread, a hint of banana and ginger. Coriander? I thought this was a Weizen.
Dry aftertaste with a low bitterness.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
This felt like a Witbier mixed with a regular Lager, not a Weizen. It is like their Blue Moon version. Still this is quite refreshing and good local option when you are tired from the other regulars from the big mass breweries.

This was surprisingly good and refreshing. had this in Tijuana a few weeks ago. I had no idea this existed. it has a nice tart wheat note to it. hints of banana/plantain.

Not the prettiest appearance, but drinkable/quaffable.

I think that this is the only weizen brewed in Mexico (craft breweries possibly excepted). I frankly do not understand how anyone can rate this weizen poorly; it's perhaps the best out there. The Mexican beers have their roots in the German and Austrian traditions due to a large immigration from those countries about 100 years ago. Many of those beers remain very true to their roots, this one included (Corona excepted). For a genuine delicious weizen, you don't have to look any further than this. Disfrutar!

This is a proper beer. Not exactly "Mexican" but a very accurate representation of a great German style. I really didn't expect this to be so good and it makes me wonder how many good beers this brewery could produce if it had the market here in Mexico. This beer and Noche Buena are my favorite beers in Mexico. And the price (converted to about $1 a bottle in late Feb 2015 in Xalapa) makes it a go-to when I'm craving a well-crafted beer in a sea full of Tecate and Corona.

This is the only industrial weizen in Mexico and that´s good, not a very good one compared to craft or imported but it´s something. I think this is a hybrid beer since mexican beer factories are not able to produce ales in their fermentation tanks.

Bohemia Oscura is one of the best commercial beers in the market so I decided to try the weizen version and it was disappointing simply due to the fact that it does not taste like a weize beer at all!

A- Has a nice champagne aspect but starting from there you know it already looks nothing like a weizen beer, it is filtered and it's too golden for a wheat beer.

S- Champagne, caramel, refreshing smell but again nothing like wheat beer.

T- The taste is the weirdest part, it is certainly not disgusting but you can't quite guess anything out of it, it tastes like a lager with cream if anything.

Mouthfeel- doesn't leave after flavor, it doesn't have that cheap beer after flavor, but it has no after flavor at all.

It's just a weird beer overall because it will be extremely hard to guess the flavors in it, it feels like it does have a flavor but can't say what, if anything it has a cream-like sensation/flavor that is instantaneous and doesn't stay for half a second.

But I also feel it is not a real wheat beer, like they probably used 10% wheat grains and called it a wheat beer. But feels like as if the company has no idea how to produce wheat beer at all.
