**NOTE: MY bottle is four years old and probably not of the best quality** Pours cloudy golden-amber with virtually no head. Nose is a mix of banana, wheat malt, and skunk. Flavor recovers the more standard weissbier flavor with a hint of spiciness and pretty light on the hops. It’s generally a bit murky in flavor and comes across in every way as "old" to me so I’ll need to find a younger bottle to get a "real" feel for this one.

freekyp (1537) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Well done to-style hefeweizen. Pours an as-expected cloudy maize color capped with thick white head. Aroma tends more towards banana than clove. Flavor is mild with a pillowy mouthfeel. Slides gradually into a soft malty finish.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2010
As Co-op Wheat Beer. 500ml bottle, from a Co-op somewhere (obviously) - not sure where or when, tasted in January 2010. Authentic enough appearance. Cloudy orange. Huge fluffy head. Fruity aroma. Not particularly banana heavy. Clove and lemon to the fore. More of the same on the palate. Quite pleasant.

Bottled@Chriso (as Co-Op Wheat Beer, 5.0%). Goldeny amber colour, big white creamy/fluffy head. Aroma is wheat, fruits, some herbs as well as mild earthy notes. Flavour is wheat, fruits, some earth and mild herbal notes. Wellbalanced and quite nice Hefeweizen.

Drake (8993) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2009
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.

johninmelb (1126) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2009
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.

GT2 (8742) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 5, 2009
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.

Text book Hef ,what ever the hell that really means. A salty, baked beany type of hef. Shitloads of customary banana esters.Spice and vanilla ice cream .Does everything well.
