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.

Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is strong of banana, some cloves. Taste is banana, cloves, wheat, tasty and highly refreshing. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a delicious beer worth seeking out.

Very cloudy yellow colored beer with a medium sized white colored head.

Highly aromatic, strong on the banana and lighter on the clove scents. Medium level of medicinal smelling phenols. But this beer just plain smells like a banana.

Semi-dry with a strong banana taste. Clove is stronger in the taste than the scent but this is still a banana tasting beer.

Overall a Hefeweizen I can recommend.

Hazy pale yellow golden color with apparent carbonation and a huge thick head with great retention and leaving some laces.
Aroma with notes of banana, chalked yeast, oranges and cloves.
Flavor with notes of orange citrus, banana, cloves, bread malt, one drop of lemon, mild ginger, yeast and finishing with floral hops.
Quite light body with appropriate carbonation.
It refreshes above average and it is less cloying given assertiveness, lighter body and very weak bubblegum. To drink liters of it. Though it didn’t swept off my feet.

A czech Hefe is a cool idea and this is a nice take on the style. Lighter than most German versions but with a creamy smooth mouthfeel this is well made. The nose is not very prominent but the taste has the right banana and clove combination. I have had English style ales and mead like ales from Czech lately so I invite other styles than pils showing up on the shelf.

Golden honey and cloudy so you see no carbonation. 3 fingers of white foamy head.

Lemon, coriander and bubblegum all in that order.

Bubblegum, lemon and coriander in that order.

Medium light, crisp body with lots of spritz like carbonation.

Well done for a company with so many diverse styles. Up to par, just not overly outstanding. Bought in Chiang Mai, drank May 16th, 2015.

500ml Bottle in Ahold Supermarket, Prague Old Town (17Czk):
Cloudy yellow, a large foamy white head & good retention. Nice lacing too.

Clove & banana, some bubblegum & a mix of sweet notes including sugar & background fruits. Citrus, in particular orange feature & the beer seems quite fresh.

Bubblegum, banana & clove dominate with orange & citrus plus some coriander around the middle. A traditional, German style taste with some nice sweetness & a touch of spice from the subtle hops that come through too.

Smooth, almost creamy with good carbonation & a lively feel. Spice & a light tang from the citrus helped the beer down & the body was a medium one.

A very good beer & as my first Czech brewed hefeweizen it didn't disappoint & could easily be ranked alongside some of the better German offerings of the style. I'll be picking up again if it ever makes its way into the UK.
