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.

Not good...bad odor, smelled like rotten tomatoes. Tasted fair but couldn’t get past the smell. Not sure if this is the beer I tasted but it was definitely an Arcobrau Hefe-Weisse. I would not drink this again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 5.3%. 4 months past BB date. Bready aroma, hint of spices. Cloudy orange colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is wheaty with a little clove. Not bad for a cheap Hefe.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Grainy spicy aroma. Yellow, off-white head. Nutty almondy notes, a bit peach.
Nutty spicy retronasal. Medium to light body. Not too exiting.

bought as co-op wheat beer. pours cloudy amber with pillowy white head, spicy apricot and banana nose. quite malty, less sweet than many hefes. smooth and fruity on the palate with a dry melony finish. not bad at all for the price.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
50 cl alla spina al John Bull di Borgo Fornari; colore oro chiaro torbido spillata malissimo con scarsissima schiuma. Aroma poco pronunciato e abbastanza canonico: banana in primo piano ma anche una nota un po’ strana di sintetico/solvente. Sapore estremamente dolce poco bilanciato dall’acidino del lievito che ritorna soltanto nel finale con una nota un po’ calda ma sempre abbastanza pungente e chimica. Non certo tra le mie hefe preferite... ma anche servita molto male
