flying_pig (1004) - SCOTLAND - JAN 8, 2013
Bottle (330ml from Vino Wines, Edinburgh):
A spicy aroma upfront, there is some cloves and orange along with some citrus. There is also a definite wheat beer smell with some yeast and sweet malts thrown in too.
Darkish, cloudy amber colour with a thin, two millimetre tall head that is bubbly but disappears after about forty seconds.
Sweet malts, some spicy hops and wheat along with a helping of cloves, light caramel and even lighter banana. Seems to be a more malty style hefeweizen with the usual citrus and some lemon in there too but not a lot.
Sweet and surprisingly spicy with a nice citrus tang. Carbonation is medium to high and there is a touch of bitterness right at the end.

A darker, spicier version of your tradition hefeweizen but a still a nice one. Quite sweet and malty without really exciting.

Theydon_Bois (9945) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2012
Tap at the Hanging Bat, Edinburgh - 08/12/12. Hazed dirty mid amber with a thin off white head that retains well. Nose is bitter and sour, unlike most Hefes I’ve had, also a touch dungy, light toffee and some fruit tones. Taste follows, sour and tarte, wheat tones, caramel, fruit. Medium bodied, light spritzy carbonation, sour finish. Average - rare to get a keg beer that attains the classic ’W’ formation ! Unusual Hefe !

johndoughty (4090) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy and flat. Some spicenrss and a medium body. Not a bad example of this style but not I would go out my way to try again.

JohnRMurdoch (3410) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 14, 2012
330ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Muddy brown colour, not much head, a bit flat. Sour yeasty fruit aroma. Resin grain flavour. A bit bland and watery. Not really a typical hefe.

zimbo (611) - SCOTLAND - DEC 9, 2012
Very sour & tart. Cloudy milky yellow to the eye. Al.most lambic-like but not in a good way.

Rune (8493) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2012
330ml bottle, 5% abv, at The Queens Head, St Pancras. Dissipating white top head, unclear, apricot coloured body. Ripe banana to the nose, lightly spiced. Wheat and ripe fruits in flavour offset by a modest impact of yeasty fruitiness. Bittersweet ending. Above par for a British weizen (London, 26.11.2012).

RichTheVillan (3517) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle Cotteridge Wines; pours really dark for a weizen, a dark hazy brown, spice and yeast aroma, clove, banana taste. OK

leaparsons (8323) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle. Hazy dull brown with a thin head. Aromas are wheat, weetabix and banana with chocolate. Cola with some nutty notes and ripe pear with mellow lemon and bubblegum. Flavours are sweet caramel and chocolate with bready yeast and hints of banana. Wheat with lemon and spices. Dry to finish. Decent.

@ The Lanes, Bristol Worried about this as I have had many a wheat beer brewed in England turned out to be awful however this is fantastic. Smooth with heavy banana tastes with a clean finish it’s one of my favourites!
