Bottle from the best damn beer shop. pours clear yellow with a thin white head. Not much on the nose. Has a bit of clove but it also has an oily texture to it. Finish lingers a bit. Not a particularly good hefe.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Sproutís: Poured a bright glowing yellow liquid with some transparency around the edges of white tint. Created a thick development of foam head which quickly simmered down. Aroma is fruity with banana and peace or apricot and smells authentic to real German hefeweizen style which is surprising since this is a brand new brewing company. Although my first pour of the pint was pleasant and having a nice taste of German yeast with all the traditional flavors, the second pour was pure dead yeast and created a pungent taste of vinegar and citrus acid. Usually with hefeweizens you would want to stir up the yeast at the bottom and pour it into your glass, but with this hef I wish I hadnít. Must taste much better from the tap as opposed to the bottle. Cheap affordable price but the bottle formula needs some work.

Draft at the brewery. Semi hazy golden pour, with a white head. Very grainy wheat, clove spice, and notes of banana sweetness. Ok, Iím not a big fan of wheats.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Aromas of banana, other sour fruit and wheat. Golden orange body with almost no head. Pretty high carbonation and a short finish. Decent flavours, but they end too abruptly. Not too bad, but for mine there are better hefeweizen out there.
