Hefeweizen. This refreshing Bavarian style wheat beer is a real Bad Seed. It was one of the first beers to break the Reinheitsgebot, the strict German purity laws. Rules about beer are silly, and we love the delicious taste of rebellion. 5.1% abv Ingredients: Malt – Wheat, Pilsner Hops – Perle

If you’re going to put Hefeweizen on the label, you should put hefeweizen in the bottle. Something cloudy with a frothy head that smells and tastes of banana, cloves and bubblegum: the beer I poured out of this 330ml bottle was bright clear gold, with no head. and no aroma to speak of. Strange dry cardboard dipped in Kia Ora flavour with a hint of paracetamol. So utterly perverse, I began to like it, but what’s going on here?

Bottle shared with Sarah at home. Pours clear light yellow / straw coloured pour with a thin lasting white head. Poured in some of the yeast. Aroma is doughy wheaty malts, little zesty and fresh, rubeer, little clove phenol. Fresh and light straw on the nose. Flavour is crisp, clean light malts, wheat, carbonic acid bite. Palate is light refreshing, bit thin, high carbonation. Ok hefe. Nowt special.

[York Beer Festival, 2014] - Bad Seed Brewery Hefeweizen, 5.1%, hefetrüb hellorange, kräftiger, luftiger Schaum. Leicht säuerlich zitronig im Aroma, dazu Hefe und etwas Banane. Kaum wässrig. Im Antrunk deutlich säuerlich, mit Zitrone, dazu eine etwas herbe Kräuternote, minimal Banane, aber ohne deren Süße. Zur Mitte immerhin etwas Süße, so etwas wie Banane, nebst Kräutern. Im Abgang sehr milde, außer einer leichten Hefe- und einer schwachen Zitronennote kaum noch etwas vorhanden. Praktisch kein Nachhall. Entspricht in etwas einem deutschen Weizen, aber es fehlt die Tiefe im Abgang.

Bottle picked up by Lynn & Barry (cheers both) consumed at home, Sunday 7th December 2014. Pours a true hefeweizen colour and look, hazy with lovely clean white head, nose is spritzy, zippy and clean. A tiny bit sweet, gassy, bit burpy and refreshing, lovely wheaty back end. Soft in mouth a little creamy vanilla ice cream, lovely but I know if drinking in the summer I would rate it even higher. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

Keg at brewdog, sheffield. Slightly Hazy orange ale with a small frothy white head. Aroma of spicy banana and nut. Taste is sweet and spiced, with a slight numbing sensation on the palate. Quite nice.

Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - golden amber with nae heid. Nose - looking for banana and eventually I find a tried banana. Taste - more dried banana, quite malt dominated and lacking in sweet wheat notes. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a tangy finish. Overall - not a hefe but decent.

330ml bottle with Ashton McCobb. Pours pale gold with a light haze. Aromas of banana, light spice, bread. Taste is light spice, more bread, more fruit. Sticky texture. Ok.
