Tap at EBBC14, cloudy amber, light citrus and banana nose, initially dry then fruity, gentle hoppiness in the finish. Intriguing interpretation of a Hefeweiss.

330ml bottle from Tesco. Small white head disappears quickly, not much lacing. Body is very cloudy golden. Nose is banana, toffee and cream. Flavour is sharp citrus, banana, straw on the finish, lingering floral taste. Mouthfeel a little thin, quite a lot of carbonation. Not a whole lot of flavour but it's refreshing, a decent attempt at the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Fin (7257) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Milton Keynes, consumed at home Monday 26th May 2014 Pours hazy light amber with white filmy head, overipe banana on nose. Taste is really quite convincing, little bit sweet maybe but plenty of banana more of this than clove. Nice, refreshing, I have served this a little too cold to pick out everything but its good. Wheaty with a little sweet clementine, good. A7 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.5

Dorwart (2359) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Thin white head which does not last long and mild carbonation. Hazy medium golden orange. Aroma is biscuity malts, decaying straw and some orange and wheat. Somewhat flat mouthfeel with more straw and wheat. Sort of sickly sweet malt backbone. Chalky mouthfeel. Mediocre brew.

33cl bottle from Tesco’s, Camberley. Hazy amber with a billowing white head; hint of banana and cloves an the aroma; sweet grainy body with a touch of spice. True to style, but not very exciting.

Pours an orange colour, taste is of orange rind and spices, ok, but not as good as the German originals

Strong banana at the onset, not too spicy with a very clean almost watery ending

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2014 330 ml bottle from Tesco, enjoyed at home. Scrumpy orange with almost no head. It had that glorious hefe aroma of banana with some orange peel and toast. The taste is sweet, almost synthetic, with a fairly sickly aftertaste. Watery palette. Shame because I do enjoy hefeweizens, and I was looking forward to this but it’s not great.
