Bohemia Wesien is the new mexican macro initiative to be just a little more closser (but in reality they are really way far) to a craft beer experience.

Appearance: Pours light yellow with a nice fluffy white foam head. Almost no head retention and no lace formation.

Smell: Little aromas of sweet malts and some citrics at the end. No complexity or fruity aromas.

Taste: Flavors of wheat malts, little citrus and with a very little orange aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: bland and light, very little hop profile.

Drinkability: Good for a mexican macrobrew.

Not a great beer. I think it is great that Cervecería is trying to go for different styles with their Bohemina brand.
But honestly, this beer is a sloppy mess. No orange nor banana notes or anything. It just tastes like carbonated water with some bread dough and a couple of toenails to spice it up.
I'd stick with regular bohemia which at least has some noticeable hops in there.

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.

Generally poor elaborated, this one seems just focused on generating a commercial beer.

Sadly all the characteristics are not intense but decreased.

A: Plain yellow color, it is a filtered not a pure wizen, the brewer announces it as a Weizen.

S: Poor aroma, nothing to remember, the main ingredients are not really clear.

T: Is the same as the smell, the flavor is really poor, a Weizen expectation is too high for this beer.

M: Well, it is refreshing that is nice and it could be according to the stile.

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.

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 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.

A = Poured into a Weizen Glass. Lots of carbonation, little head with no rettention, more to the clear side. Looks pretty refreshing

S = I get coriander, oranges, lemon peels and basically that is it.

T = Pretty much the same as the smell. Oranges, some banana maybe, coriander and lemon peels at the end and staying for some time.

M = Medium to light body, over-carbonated

O = A pretty refreshing beer. For being a Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma beer it is actually not that bad. Right now it's around 90 degress here and after playing basketball it is a good beer to have. It taste very refreshing.

Brown 355 ml. bottle poured into a pint glass, showing a clear and deep straw with an inch of white foam. Decent retention and light lace.

Mix of wheat and pale malts and a bit of a musky hop aroma. No real Bavarian yeast notes, more of a pale American Wheat brew.

Taste is more of pale barley than wheat and with a pronounced lemon hop finish.

Decent feel with a spritzy delivery and more lemon again on the finish.

Overall no real yeast influence, just a fruity and easy drinking warm weather brew.

Given to me to try by my homebrewer friend Jose from the CV homebrewers club. I helped him put together a package for a trade and he told me to give this a try. No problem! tick incoming.

Generic taster tulip ~6 oz

A: Crystal clear early morning sunshine with a bit of white cap. There's no head retention, lacing, or even film to speak of. Even after the initial pour there were just some modest suds, but there is a fairly constant stream of bubbles in the body that implies a reasonable level of carbonation. Small clear bubbles form over time in the center of the body, like a cauldron at boil. Looks pretty average.

S: Light soggy wheat, I would almost say this comes off like a porridge. A mild sweetness that almost has a rustic subtlety to it. Some light fruity notes that are banana like, or ripe kiwi centers. A little bit of green tomato weirdness creeps in behind the sweet notes. Not bad, it actually smells like it has legitimate ingredients.

T: The forward flavor is a lightly soapy banana flavor. I guess the soapiness could be described as an oily herb flavor that I am not familiar with. A slightly metallic flavor that I am not crazy about, but this lasts for an extremely short while before legitimate flavors take hold. A lot of little flowery notes that catch me off guard, with a definite fried banana flavor. Some odd button mushroom funk sneaks in at the end.

M: The mouth definitely implies a light body with a reasonable amount of carbonation. The bubbles continue to stream in throughout the drinking process, but I find myself hard pressed to feel them while drinking. Very soft light busts of bubbles are easy to forget as you drink, but I have to admit they are there. A lightly drying finish cuts the flavor a bit short, this is a bit of a catch 22-- it cuts the flavor short, but also puts an end to some odd not-so-good notes.

O: This is actually definitely some steps up from a generic no-beer-ingredients-macro. However, I think the execution is a bit suspect. I really don't understand the flavor profile of this beer, and it really seems unnecessarily soapy. The mouth feel really isn't bad on this beer, but there seems to be an odd relationship between the duration of the flavors and the light drying body of the mouth. I want to like this beer, as it's really not so bad at all, but at the same time it wins me over in no category. It will just have to settle for simply "better than macro", but far too mediocre to be considered anything else.

I love trying the random one-off beers from the Mexican macros. Tasted 19 December 2013, reviewed from notes.

Pours pale yellow, like champagne. One finger of white head, okay retention and lacing.

Smell is interesting. It's like half adjunct lager, half hefeweizen. Noticeably wheaty, surprisingly so.

Taste is light and crisp, kinda, but a little full and a little sweet.

Feel is odd. Much more mouth-filling than I think it should be, with a rounded warmness that doesn't complement the beer, making it feel heavier and almost chewy. Carbonation is too low, and too flat across.

A passable beer. A little better than the standard Mexican macros, thanks to the wheat, but not much better.
