A 16.9 ounce Euro bomber poured into a shaker pint glass (I don't own any of those cool hefeweizen glasses).

Appearance - A light yellow color. Hazy. A nice head but it disappears quickly. No lacing to speak of. It looks like an unfiltered apple cider.

Smell - Citrus. Sour. Bubblegum.

Taste - Lemon. Somewhat sour. Bananas. A bit tart. Interesting.

Mouth - A bit fizzy. A little weak.

Overall - This is a good, but not great, European hefeweizen. The citrus/lemon flavor and the mild sour taste, on the back-end, are nicely balanced. I'm guessing that the tart flavor, in the background, is the result of the hops. The ale works well enough but, to my taste, it is a touch underwhelming.

Sampled two days ago on 5/19/15. Comes in a 500ml (16.9 ounce) ounce bottle that I picked up for just $1.00 last month at the Hy-Vee next door in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a handled-glass "CHEERS-BOSTON" stein.

Brew pours a hazy apricot-amber in color with a thin white head. Some spotty lacing was seen when sipped. The aroma is pretty much the typical aroma of this style of brew with some spices and wheat. The taste is close to the nose with some bananas, clove and pepper along with the sweet wheat. Decent finish overall. Not as good as some others I tried of this style but decent. Close to Medium-bodied with perfect carbonation.

On tap at the Map Room.

Pours cloudy yellow with a white head--pretty standard for the style.

Smells of bananas, black peppers, and cloves. Nice profile, with the sweetness of the fruit balanced by wheatmalt spice.

Tastes, thankfully, like it smells: big nanners, black pepper. Flavors aren't quite as intense as the aroma led me to anticipate, but the palate is still nicely composed.

Not all that much to say, here. A very nice but somewhat lightly flavored hefe.

I found this Austrian weiss to be on par with a lot of the German weiss I have had, really solid with a bit less carbonation. A good bit cheaper than it's German counterparts as well. Just discovered it at a market 20 or so miles away, might have to go back and clean out their stock. Give it a shot if you find it.

Pours cloudy, straw yellow with a bright white, foamy head.
Aromas of straw, red berries, banana and tropical fruit.
Slighly sweet with flavors of berries and buttered bread.
Lingering butteriness in mouthfeel, slightly chewy and frothy.
I don't know what to expect from an Austrian wheat beer, but you will like this if you like witbiers.

Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a white head. In the aroma mellow sweet lemon citrus. In the taste, a crisp bite to a smooth wheat flavor and some lemon citrus underneath it all. A small bite, but mainly smooth with a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a lightly dry lemon citrus in the aftertaste. Mellow and rounded, with some nice lemon flavors.
