A German style unfiltered wheat beer with citrus notes on the palate and powerful aroma of clove and banana, imparted by a unique yeast strain.

Theydon_Bois (9946) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle at Mum and Dads, 25/12/14, from Dundalk Tossco. Lightly hazed golden with a decent off white covering that soon collapses to a swirl. Nose is pear drop, banana, yeast esters, light spice, touch of caramel and vanilla. Taste comprises banana, butterscotch, clove, straw, yeast notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light woody grape notes. Ok Hefe.

330mL bottle poured into a shaker. Typical Hefe aromas, unlike the native German offerings, this one tastes a bit synthetic. Bubblegum and clove flavour comes through a little strong and overly sweet. Nice summer refresher though.

thelynchfella (76) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 18, 2014
Pours a hazy yellow with big white head. Aroma: grain, lemon zest. Light citrus taste with banana. Lightly hopped. Not a bad beer. Easy to drink

Ratman197 (10216) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle poured a clear golden amber with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of wheat, yeast, light butterscotch and light clove. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of wheat, yeast, light clove and a hint of banana with a smooth finish.

AshtonMcCobb (2935) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 19, 2014
On the nose this was very yeasty and lacking in fruit. However on the taste there is all the expected banana and spice. A game of 2 halves.

tomer (1803) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 23, 2014
Draught, small stable creamy head, light cloudy plae gold colour, aroma of yeast and wheat with a buttery hint, strong almond flavour with some wheat notes, strong and a bit coarse bitterness, no sourness. Not the best of weizens.

rok1024 (1155) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - AUG 23, 2014
Hazy yellow appearance, medium head. Banana, grain aromas, malty, sweet, slightly spicy. Good Hefeweizen.

Padchenko (92) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 1, 2014
330ml bottle, 4.7%. Cloudy and fairly fizzy yellow/orange wheat beer. Quite light in texture so it’s easy to drink quickly. Mild, citrusy, but not abundantly flavoursome. Decent Hefeweise

johndoughty (4090) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy orange appearance which is not very inviting. Not a lot of flavour although there is a presence of wheat and fruitiness. Did not impress.

BeerViking (2689) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Tap at EBBC14, cloudy amber, light citrus and banana nose, initially dry then fruity, gentle hoppiness in the finish. Intriguing interpretation of a Hefeweiss.
