Hefe-Weizen (meaning ’wheat with yeast’), this Bavarian style Weiss (Wheat) is highly effervescent with a fluffy white head. Brewed using wheat, pale and munich malt, it is unfiltered, hence cloudy. Fruity and tart in the mouth, with hints of lemon, while the dominant aromas are of banana and clove.

WoW this one felt like one of the lovely German hefe weisse. If you like that style of beer. This one will do you good. Unclear yellow golden color with a big fine white head. Solid lacing down the sides of the glass. Wheat, yeast, clove and banana. Tad sweet as it should. Ok body and ok carbonation.

Draft. A hazy amber beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of wheat and bananas. The flavorflavor is sweet with notes of wheat, bananasas, and odd spices, leading to a dry finish. Fermented at the right temperature?

On draft at J.W. Sweetman - this is a Hefeweizen from the microbrewery in Dublin. The colour and smell are authentic to the Bavarian original. The taste is something different, there are clear wheat notes, but the overall taste is sweeter and with less aftertaste. This is better than most attempts at wheatbeer from Ireland.

Draught. Light golden colour, cloudy, nice thick head with good lacing. Aroma is lots of banana, some wheat, clove, a bit of hops. Not too sweet. Medium carbonation, the beer is very smooth and easy to drink. Gorgeous.
