3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle from Wanstead Tap. Pours cloudy orange with lasting white head. No lacing. Classic sour hefeweizen aroma, mostly bananas but with a delicate hint of something chemical like shampoo. Nice sour taste, bananas and ripe fruit. No bitterness at all. Very high carbonation, a bit too high I think, refreshing. Decent hefeweizen in overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Pours a very cloudy pale orange colour with a large frothy white head diminishing slowly. Huge amount of sediment in the bottle - swirling this around led to the extremely murky appearance (it was just hazy before).
Aroma of wheat, lemon, banana, and some mild spicing. Flavour is quite citrusy - lemon and grapefruit are stronger than the banana making it more bitter than I was expecting, there is some sweetness too though, also wheat, yeast, mild spicing. Overall: for a non-German wheat beer this was actually pretty decent, but they’re still much better at this style than we are - I liked it but still prefer actual German ones.

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.
