Aroma: citrus fruits, lemon, yeast, wheat. Appearance: pale, hazy gold, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: citrus again, remains bitter, light acidic, grain malts. Overall: OK Hefeweizen, a touch too much lemon for my taste. Bottle at Powder Keg Diplomacy, Clapham.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants (Bridge St), consumed at home. Light yellow, not as cloudy as your average Hefe... more in the ’hazy’ category. A handsome and tempting white head crowns it off. Smells different than I expected... less banana and more citrus, grass, even a bit of leather and funk. Tastes a bit sour - cue the grapefruit - with a straight bitter finish, long and dry. Bitter hoppy aftertaste. After drinking it for a while, I start to get a bit more of the banana/clovey business, but it certainly stands out from the style. Not overly mad about it but certainly don’t dislike it either. Slightly above average.

Was interested to find out what a Hefe from Bristol would be like. Not bad is my answer, though I’d prefer more banana to come through. Lemon and orange nose, with some a strong citrus element to the flavour with some clove coming through. Cloudy, sherbet colour with a small white head.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Live. Bottle. Piled white on faintly misted gold. Nose of diluted lambic lime and cheesy hop; hay, gooseberry, bespattered farm track. Weirdly smoked, husky taste with a burnt clove spiciness. Badly lacking the requisite freshness and mottled banana notes of a classic hefe.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Dave. Golden with a thick head. Strong hefe aroma of sweet banana and treacle. The feel is thick and creamy; the taste somewhere between a hefe and a Bohemian pils, with some metallic dryness. Not as rich or sweet as its Munich counterparts. Nice beer here.
