@ 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!

Slurped from a Erdinger glass. A bit of an appropriate beer to match to the glass, so an admirable effort, if those 2 things are combustibly unified. I don’t think I’m a fan of JLS so this is a slightly unfair comment. Quite good. Decent. Not too sweet, but that’s my JLS non love coming through. Definitely.

Drunk from a Schneider Weiss glass. A bit of an insult to the glass, but an admirable effort, if those 2 things are compatible. I don’t think I’m a fan of hefes so this is a slightly unfair comment. Quite good. Decent. Too sweet, but that’s my hefe non love coming through. Perhaps.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Hazy amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, white head. Wheaty and yeasty aroma with a citrus touch, some bread. Taste is yeasty, wheaty, some citrus, baked apple, subtle sweetness. Better than a great deal of ’German’ German Hefeweizen.

29.03.2013. 0,5l Bottle. @tkk. Dark golden colour with white head. Aroma of banana and wheat. Rather rich for a hefe weizen. Aftertaste is medium bitter and there is a lot of banana at the end. I had this beer rather warm and I think that enhanced the banana flavours.

May 2012 - really nothing special about this. Underwhelming and nowhere near the quality of the German stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 !
