L- More amber than gold, poured gently after being rested well yet but striking how much sediment lifted into the pour, even knowing it's an unfiltered Weissen. Pours with circa 1Cm white head which holds very well (still all there 10mins post-pour).
S- Classic Weissen nose to it, that bouquet of spices.
T- Similar to^ the spicy Weissen profile is right there on the palate, zero need to sip+squint over and over to discern it here.
F- Interesting! It has a distinct 'roundness' to it that I wouldn't expect from a Bavarian Weissen
O- I like it, and I like it more than several of the big-name Bavarian Weisse-bier. For context I lived in Germany for 3 years and enjoyed legions of them. The extent of the wheaty 'rounded' aspect is unusually prominent and I think it would make this a good choice of Weisse especially during colder months (like now for me!).

Really nice cloudy yellow colour with thick head and some sediments.
Fruity smell.
The taste is also fruity, with bananas in front and some fresh unripe fruits giving a bit of astringence.
Dense body, a pleasure to drink.
A very well made weizen!

Pours a murky dark orange color with a small top off white head that disolves rather quickly. Sweet aroma off banana,yeast and cloves. The flavour follows the nose for the most. Sweet banana with wheatmalts and cloves, finishes off dry with a slight bitterness and a decent lenght in the aftertaste. Meddium carbonated with a thick body. The mouthfeel are creamy but a little watery. This is more than a decengt enough hefeweizen. Nothing very exiting , but good and easy driking.

Stiegl's Weisse is a traditional, basic Bavarian-style hefeweizen with the typical appearance and notes of banana and clove from the yeast. They're not too strong, their not too light, and there's a very subtle tartness within the wheat maltiness as well. It's medium light in body and effervescently crisp - easy to drink and refreshing as it's not too sweet, and some spicy hops rouse your tastebuds in the finish so that you're ready for the next sip.

A- Vanilla colored bubbles that are wee tight provide a layer of frothy cover over this golden hued brew that also has bronze tinges around the rim....this is also semi-transparent, wheat beer! The retention levels are good and the lacing is quite good, with chunky patches of foam sliding slowly back into the glass.

S- Biscuit like yeast....almost doughy, banana like esters, possible apricot kernel, appfelwine, peach, along with crystal and caramel malts.....the finish is slightly Earthy and of some sweet spice. Overall a nice, yet mild aroma that would be average-ish.

T- Overall this is mild and watered down, with yellow fruit flavors....banana, apricot, golden delicious apple, and a dry, muted spice finish. I find there is a small metallic quality about it and it underwhelms the palate unfortunately.

M/O- Champagne like bubbles that provide a nice burst of zing on the palate......light bodied and sociable, this would make a good hot weather/ladies drink. The alcohol is well hidden, but I just don't find it my kind of beer.....not offensive, but nothing to write home about. Probably pass on this one....

330ml bottle, another refugee from the 'current' Stiegl Advent calendar that didn't sell so well (that's the understatement of the year).

This beer pours a hazy, medium golden amber colour, with a handful of puffy, finely foamy, and mildly bubbly dirty white head, which leaves some low-lying desert-scape topography lace around the glass as it quickly sinks away.

It smells of bready wheat malt, banana puree, further apple and pear fruity notes, discreetly phenolic yeast, and plain earthy and weedy hop bitters. The taste is grainy, gritty caramel and wheat malt, muddled pome and drupe fruit, sedate yeast, a twinge of mixed table top pepper mill grist and clove spice, and more weak earthy and leafy noble hoppiness.

The bubbles are adequate in their plain and supportive frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and generally smooth, with a wee airy creaminess arising from the outset. It finishes off-dry, the sweet wheatiness and kind of sugary spice lingering more or less in isolation.

Overall, a not too shabby version of the style, easy to drink, and very reminiscent of summertime patio indulgence, or so I imagine. Glad I finally got to try this one without all the expensive shitty trappings of this one's packaging vector around here.

Mild and light bodied weizen from Austria, Cloudy copper color with medium fluffy head. Sediment is chunky, so I sense this bottle is a bit old, but not skunky. Aroma is typical weizen notes, but toned down. Looks thick, but is actually fairly light bodied. Taste is also somewhat subdued, slight banana/clove tastes. Passable weizen.

500ml bottle in Blef Bar No. 2, Ljubljana (€3.60):
A pretty good wheat beer. The beer was quite a nice one that went down easily with a good balance, the banana & clove sweetness going well with the citrus flavours that followed. Definitely an enjoyable Austrian wheat beer & one I'd be tempted to pick up again if I found it in the UK but it's not quite a standout offering.

Very dark orange color, hazy as a good Hefeweizen should be. Nice two finger fluffy off white head, good retention and lacing. Huge aromas of banana, coriander, bubble gum, and wheat bread. Flavor was missing that good banana and spice flavor though, but the bready wheat flavor was quite dominant, with just a bit of citrusy lemony tart notes. The mouthfeel was rather thin for a Hefeweizen, but with good carbonation. Overall, pretty good, but not overwhelming.

The colour is orange-amber (30 EBC), the liquid is cloudy. The thick off-white head fills the glass at first. It stabilizes to a two finger head, leaving thick lacing on the glass.

The smell is fresh with distinct notes of dough, spicy phenols, sticky caramel sweetness and hints of oak and banana candy.

The taste is smooth. Caramel sweetness and fruit-flavoured candy. Ripe bananas and banana peels. Clean mild bitterness and some wheat sourness. Dough and wheat flour. Spicy notes of nutmeg, orange peels and cloves in the background. Medium to full body. The aftertaste is mild and cohesive with caramel, fruit candy, sweet wheat dough and a touch of metal.

The carbonation is medium strong; the many small bubbles long-lived. The liquid is smooth and a bit thick.

A solid Hefeweizen with very balanced phenols, but perhaps a bit too sweet.

Poured from 500 ML bottle into a "Conquest" pint glass.
Aroma- Has a pretty sweet smell of wheat and barley with some honey and malt tossed in for good measure.
Appearance- Pours a nice orangish color with a large white head.
Taste- Has a great sweet weizen flavor. The malt and wheat are blended well and this is a great beer to enjoy. . .often!
Palate- This is a medium bodied beer with heavy carbonation.
Overall- I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. I had never seen this beer before but i will drink this again. This is the first memorable Austrian beer that i have had.
