500 ml bottle into weizen glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big lemon, orange, pear, banana, bubblegum, clove, coriander, wheat, bread, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and light earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, pear, banana, bubblegum, clove, coriander, wheat, bread, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness, yeast spice, and wheat tang on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, banana, bubblegum, clove, coriander, wheat, bread, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately creamy/grainy mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is an excellent hefeweizen! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Typical cloudy appearance of a Weizen. Rich head with good retention. Citrus, cloves, banana flavor. Banana aroma is well noticable but not dominant, giving the beer more fresh feel. Hop bitterness and aroma low. A typical example of the style and a pretty good beer. Available in all larger supermarkets in Czechia.

500ml bottle poured into a weizen glass.

Cloudy orange amber color with very thick creamy white head that stays with great retention, it slowly subsides to everlasting foamy crown along with lots of sticky lacing, high visible carbonation.

The aroma is all what you can expect from German’s Hefeweizen; clove forwards, then bubble gum, some spice, banana, citrus, some yeasty tartness, and bready malt.

Sweetness sweeps all over with a quality of bready malt, yeast is not going anywhere but thereafter takes over the palate by a note of banana ester together with clove spiciness and mild tartness. Hop is traditionally muted with just very slight bitterness undertone.

Medium body, smooth mouthfeel and soft effervescence flow through the palate from some lively carbonation, quite refreshing, dry finish.

Hefeweizen from Czech Republic, and I must say yes it is straight to the point. Truly like German’s brew and perhaps better in some case.

Nachod apparently likes to brew beers off-the-beaten path. And this wheat beer qualifies as few Czechs brew it.
The similarities to the Bavarian style are strong, but rarely as good as the best Bavarians. Not much head. Not much banana yeast, although the cloves caught my nose. And the Taste is not as complex, but still good and helpfully hopped.
My bottle had lots more yeasty sentiment than usual, so maybe mine was a bit past its time. But still good.

Reviewed on the "1001 Beers To Taste Before You Die", there is lots of interesting historical information... like wheat beers may have originated in Bohemia instead of Bavaria. I guess for that reason, it deserves to be on the list.
