Leighton (11889) - 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 (1984) - 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.

RyanE (145) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 3, 2013
Great looking pour typical of the style. Large white head, cloudy orange/brown liquid. Definitely wheat dominated. Lots of grass and straw. Raw dough. Dried apricot and Banana. Lighter bodied but feels bigger with the increased carbonation. Clean finish. Solid beer.

rarbring (1551) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2012
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.
Note: Bottle, relabeled as "Somerfield Best Ever… Bavarian Wheat Beer". Earl’s Court, London. Reviewed 2010-07-25.

pivoveskotsku (201) - SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2012
Pale, hazy yellow colour. Aroma of banana and bubblegum. Taste is slighty grainy, more banana and more bubblegum. Not bad and fairly refreshing. From the bottle bought at Aldi.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2012 Typical citrus/clove/banana aroma, a little detergenty. A tart citrus note dominates the taste. Refreshing finish. Not bad.

StueyD (1239) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2012
Cloudy amber orange coloured beer with a thick white head. A little spicy aroma, typical of the style, clove and cinnamon, with a background smokiness. Then the expected tropical fruit element comes through, banana and pineapple. Fizzy mouthfeel. A dry biscuity taste to start, which compliments the spice flavours of clove and cinnamon. The fruit flavours come through with a sweet and sour balance of banana and pineapple with sourness of grapefruit and lemon. The finish is a little short and lacking body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
