3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is wheat, cereal malt, light clove and noble hop. Appearance is golden brown orangish with huge foamy off white head that lingers. Looks more like a Dunkelweizen than an Hefe. Taste is wheat and cereal malt forward. Some clove present as well. Hop bitterness barely present, slight noble spiciness. Palate is medium full. Sweet malt and cereal linger. Overall this is a nice beer but not really a German Hefe. Too dark and the cereal flavor is quite pronounced. Yeast isn’t doing much in this beer. Still, its unique and a nice drinker.

Bottle: This one pours a slightly hazy coppery color. There was a small off-white head on it and not much lacing. It has an interesting aroma. Wheat, caramel, some spices. Possible banana hidden in there. The taste is very good. Wheat, some caramel malts, light spice. Neutral to slightly sweet.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden amber with a large off white fluffy head. Aroma is of wheat, dark malt and yeast notes. Taste same as aroma with some moderate bitterness. Palate is a medium body with good carbonation. The finish has wheat and dark malt flavors with some yeast notes and moderate bitterness on the end for balance. Overall nothing too special here but still a good drinking brew.

Bottle from Metro Wines, Syston. Starts off quite bland, but as it warms up it does get tastier. Sweet and creamy and commonly good. Great colour and soft head.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 50 cl, BBE 26.09.2014. Pours hazy golden in color with a creamy whitish
head. Ripe forrest berries, banana and sour wheat in aroma. Notes of wheat,
banana fruityness and butterscotch sweetness in taste. Isn’t overly sweet though,
just about the right amount here. Feels quite smooth too. Solid hefeweissbier.
Sweetish banana notes and slightly burnt toffee in aftertaste.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at JDW. Hazy dark gold, extra thin white head. Faint wheaty aromas, with some bubblegum. Taste is classic wheat beer, but with a hint of metal. Not great.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl Bottle from Vomar Noordwijk. Brewed for Benediktiner Weissbräu in Ettal, by Licher, so my bottle says. Hazy golden orange colour, dense off-white head. Aroma of sweet banana, clove, yeast, wheat, typical Hefeweizen fare. Flavour is medium-sweet, spicy, clove, banana, some light-refreshing wheat, light-bitter finish. Light-bodied, firm carbonation. Decent Weizen.

Poured two fingers of thick, foamy head on a hazy, dark straw colored body.
