kappldav123 (4593) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass modest turbid, nice head. Starts mild, fine malty-yeasty, not too dry. Modest sweet without being too much. Fruity notes of apricots. Nice!

Osprey87 (1180) - London via, WALES - MAR 21, 2013
Bought as Waitrose wheat beer. Can’t remember the first two times I had this. (Feb 2012) - a standard sweet wheat beer, nothing special, nothing complex, but drinkable.

mR_fr0g (2010) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle at home from Waitrose. Semi cloudy orange grey colour with a thick short lived white head. Nose is clove with hint of orange. Flavour is oats and bready. Somewhat flabby palate. Decent, but nothing to write home about.

reebtogi (3838) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 2, 2013
500ml bottle pours a cloudy orange color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is orange peel with some yeast and grains. Taste is a spicy hop and orange zest bitterness with a grainy malt sweetness finishes dry. Medium bodied with abundant carbonation. A pretty decent brew, but there are better hefes out there.

JorgeLee (1067) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle from Kris Wines. Fairly dark hazy orange brown, poured with insistent sparkle and the usual ginormous head. Very fruity aroma, apple, some spice maybe clove. Sweet taste, again fruit to the fore, a little yeast, very little dry or bitter character. Nicely complex in the fruity/yeast, maybe seeking a little balance.

Leighton (9874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2013
Bottle at home in London, procured from Waitrose in Bath. Pours lightly cloudy, matte gold with a good, sturdy white foam head. Aroma holds some semi-ripe banana, crisp orange citrus, some wheaty dough. Light to medium sweet flavor with a pleasant, rounded fruit character, mellow esters, moderate wheat, faint hay and cereal. Light bodied with average carbonation. Crisp, very clean finish, not overly sweet like some hefes, but not overly deep in character either. Restrained wheat, yeast, white bread, light lemon zip and banana, low bitterness. Very easy drinking hefeweizen.

EdKing (1760) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle bought in Waitrose ’Bavarian Heffe Weissbier’. Colour is orangey amber, big foaming white head. Nose is wheaty grainy, sweetish, spicy, clove. It’s not a strong nose. Taste is soft wheaty, bready, clove, spice, orange citrous. Again not really strong flavoured. Body and carbonation a bit weak. Needs more kick.
