@ 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!

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2011 bottle @ #twissup. Thanks Mark! 12/11/11
Pours a hazy blonde with typical wheat beer aroma of banana and bubblegum. Plenty of clove in the body which is sprightly and refreshing. Need to try more of this brewery’s range.
Tried on draft @ Black Heart, camden at the proper temperature!
Much more banana flavour in the body with soft carbonation and a bit more spiciness, rating increased accordingly!

Guest keg at BrewDog Edinburgh. Plenty banana, yeast on the nose. Got a cold so can’t smell too well. Sadface. Slightly sweet, fruity and rich. Surprising spicy bitterness. Good.

Keg at the Dean Swift, Tower Bridge. A genuine tasting weisse and at that point in an increasingly sweaty afternoon, it was just what the doctor ordered. Mily wheat with banana, slight bubblegum and dough. Quite refreshing.

Keg at the brewery. Brown amber colour, slighty hazy, not much head. Aroma is lots of banana, wheaty and a touch of spice. Maybe banana bread. Taste very similar, lots of grain, bit of cream and maybe some bubblegum. Quite nice.

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.

Keg Old Fountain London. A hazy tan coloured beer with a big white head and lace. A very authentic and full bodied hefeweizen. Banana, clove and wheaty flavours. Big esters. Particularly aromatic. One of my favourite hefes and it’s brewed in London. Who’d have thought it?

Sample @ Torben Matthews smagning. Pours hazy light amber with small fizzy white head. Aroma is banana, rust, cloves and very sour yoghurt. Taste is medium bitter, light acidic and light sweet. Body is watery with good carbonation. Finish is dry with hints of cloves.
