As Samuel Smith Wheat beer. Hazy yellow with thick white head. Much banana and coriander in the aroma. The taste is sweet but spiced up by coriander and ginger.

imdownthepub (10141) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2006
Keg at The Cheshire Cheese, Fleet Street, London. Hazed, cloudy lemon with keged head. An unfortunate attempt at a Hefe Weizen, there are cloves and a sweet false banana flavour/perfume but it is fairly poor. Cloyng throughout with a mouthcoating spicy mush. Tis a shame and this was the first time I’d managed to find this historic pub open, what a place, even on the Friday evening crush from the City Suits.

FatPhil (9287) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 25, 2007
Draught (Cittie of Yorke, London) Cloudy yellow - thin light head. Good german style wheat beer. Light wheat and corriander aroma. Fizzy and sharp in the mouth. Slightly corny - caramel and candyfloss - sweetness, some light banana. Very authentic. Sessionable at 5% no doubt.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2009
On Tap at Sinclairs Oyster Bar, Manchester 21/12/2007 Some spice aroma. Golden coloured hazy in appearance hoppy and fruity banana flavour with a crisp and dry lasting malt finish.

Rune (7995) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2006
Half pint on draught. Hazy yellow. Only a tiny white head. Fruity aroma of coriander and flavour of sweet cloves. Refreshing and a good partner to French Brie (served in a stylish Ayinger glass at The Cittie of Yorke 20.09.2006).

God, I dislike Sam Smiths intensely. They have a really old and traditional brewery but (notwithstanding their highly regarded, but in my view over-rated, bottled beers) make just one mediocre cask bitter and insist on filling great old pubs with pissy keg bitters and fizzy lagers. So here we are at the historic former Courage brewery (long since gone) tap in South London, at the end of the RB London pub crawl on a Joeh inspired quest to try every one of those depressing products. At least I’ll get them all out of the way in one fell swoop. To be fair, the wheat beer is not the worst of the bunch. It looks OK and there’s even a hint of estery banana, but the butterscotch is definitely not authentic and entirely unwelcome. Not good, but drinkable.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2008
Å Sim/Elena rate (draft at the Duke of Argyle): Very very wheaty aroma with a bit of vanilla. It’s like a freshly mowed lawn. Tastes like that milk bread. Very fizzy. Kinda like traditional lemonade. Looks like that coudy apple juice but with foam on top. Ooh, and it comes in a cool glass.

deyholla (6608) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 25, 2009
On tap. Poured a yellowish gold with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma had notes of sweet bananas and cloves. Flavor brought out more of the wheat flavor with the bananas and cloves becoming more of an undertone.

Draft @ Angel & White Horse, Tadcaster, Very good hefe. Really suprised by the low ratings. Slightly hazed yellow pour, Notes of cloves, wheat & slight banana in thearoma & flavor. Smooth, nice mouthfeel. Nice beer
