Shared 500ml bottle at The Queens Head, St Pancras. Firm and lasting white foamy head. Copper coloured body, almost clear. Rather inviting smell of citrus and wheat. Tart and sweet taste of fruits added by a spicy touch. Dry, bittersweet fruity endnotes. Decent (London, 26.11.2012).

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.

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.

50cl from ABCBeers. Thick creamy white head. Hazy golden pour, should be cloudy. Refreshing

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.

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2014
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.

foxo82 (810) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
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.

Pudding (207) - Birmingham, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2014
500ml, bottle-conditioned. ar: slight sherbet. ap: gold, very slight haze. Fluffy white head, soon diminishing. Taste: banana, medium-heavy sweetness, appropriate bitterness. pa: light body, lingering banana and wheat. ov: worthy hefe-weizen. Full of taste and refreshing.
