2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle from Total Wine Triangle Plaza, Raleigh, NC. Pours a very hazy lemon-orange color with a large white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is very bread with caramel, spice and faint citrus. Taste is bready with an odd bitterness. Seems slightly off. Medium bodied.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Alluring nose of candy and slight spice. Pours gently cloudy with a head you could use for packing foam it’s so persistant. Flavour is fresh and thirst-quenching with some weetbix and sliced banana tempered by a gentle bitterness. Finishes dry and slightly cloying. Fair.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in the guise of Bavarian Hefe-Weizen. Pours a typical cloudy gold hefeweizen with a decent white head that fizzles out with not much retention or lacing. Aroma of subdued bananas and cloves with a little yeast and lemon and whiff of corn. Taste is watery and carbonated with the typical notes of bubblegum, coriander, cloves, and bananas albeit to a lesser degree than other takes on this style. Bready malt comes in after some time. Watery to creamy on the palate. Slight acidic finish. Not very impressive for the style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle as Co-op wheat beer from Co-op, Long Stratton) Light golden cloudy colour with an impressive thick fluffy head. Should start by saying not my favourite style, although can see when it would be very pleasurable (hot summers day). Aroma is a lemon/lime/banana fruitiness with clove and flowers - typical wheat beer smell. Light refreshing floral taste with all the aforementioned fruits hinting at various points. Fairly water though with only a hint of bitter. Carbonation was average. Ok, a bit bland, but better than macro lagers in the refreshing stakes. Not as good as a good pilsner though. Not bad for the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle label says Premium Hefe-Weisse. Pours a cloudy light amber with a two finger creamy head. The nose shows a nice balance of sour wheat and banana, some clove spice in the background, mild corn. The flavor is wheaty, banana, crisp on the mouthfeel, mild clovey spice feel. Palate is full and smooth, nice wheat feel with a mild crispness. Tasty.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
In Its Waitrose Bavarian Weissbier guise. Hazy orange gold with a white head. Yeasty, cobwebby aroma with pungent woodsmoke. Really rather lovely. Taste is pretty nice too: wheaty, bready flavour with cloves and spiciness. Warm summer’s evening after early showers, scent of cottage garden flowers etc.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Biggish offwhite lasting head. Hazy opaque paleish orangey body. Citric yoghurty aroma with bananaish, bready, milky notes. Sweetish chalky vaguely fruity bananaish taste with citric yeasty notes. Flat mouthfeel, due to lack of carbonation. Dry yoghurty aftertaste of nothing much. Vaguely unpleasant and boring. (0.5l bottle, Coop, Ballycastle, Ulster as Co-op Wheat Beer.)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (Dank an joss): Hazy, golden, mid-sized, slowly collapsing firm white head; wheaty-bready nose with fruity undertones; moderate sweetish-sourish flavour; mild sweetish-malty finish with a very shy tartness in the end. Quite a mediocre Weizen.......

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Columbia, SC - Total Wines - 12 oz bottle - Labeled as "Bavarian Wheat Beer". Light golden pour, thin white head. Corny aroma - matches the flavor. Faint clove and banana flavor with more of a mushy cereal like flavor permeating throughout. Artificial mouthfeel. Not a favorite.
