3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: The smell is spicy, coriander, clove etc, citric aromas and quite a lot of yeast giving a bit of a closet feeling.
Appearance: The beer is rather deep golden with a brown tone, a white firm head leaving good lacing.
Taste: The sweetness is in the syrup area, citric nuances from oranges and lemons, the spices mentioned and some lemon and grape-fruit zest.
Palate: Medium high carbonation, lots of small soft bubbles. Smooth
Overall: A rather good wheat beer, possibly a bit sweet.
