3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2008 Hazy orange trumpet fizzing with sediment. Creamy white head. Suggestons of peach or apricot both in the aroma and flavour. Begins quite sourly, but ends with a bitter dryness. Refreshing interplay of fruit and wheat. Milkily still body. Slides down like flat lemonade after you’ve guzzled a few. And at 5.3%, this one can sneak up on you. And your wallet. So be careful. Most expensive ’pint’ ever sampled in the British Isles (£4.20).
(re-rate). Tastes like Honey Nut Loops. Atypically unfruity for a hefe. Woodsy aroma with slight almond. A bit dull, but refreshing.

What it lacks in Appearance (cloudy hefe-wiezen are not the best looking) it makes up for is aroma and taste. Pours a golden colour with a thick frothy head. Aroma a grains, citrus, and hint a spice(cloves). Taste is exactly what the aroma promises and is everything I love is a good Hefe. As alwaysw quite refreshing and a good end to a long work week. I will definitely search this one out again.

Bottle in Vodice, Croatia. This is one of the first Weissbiers I’ve actually enjoyed. Really white but strong too. Lots of foam and yeast/lemon aroma.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My new summertime favorite. Pours thick and shockingly white into a 1/2 liter hefe glass with a good head. Aroma hits you before the pour is even done. Aspects of hot biscuits, pizza dough and cloves. Little of the typical banana aroma. Taste was complex and mouthfeel was clean and lemony.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml Bottle: The bottle says it better than I could: ".. glistening golden-straw colour and majestic frothy head ..". Pours as described, the head even stuck around until the end for me. Aroma strong in yeast and lemon. Flavour is quick on the draw with that yeast and lemon, followed by tones of orange, cloves, and a dull wheat. Overall a decent hefeweizen; I’ve had worse, and I’ve had better. I’d have it again.

This is a pretty decent wheat beer. I admit these are not my favorite style, but this isn’t bad. Perhaps a bit hoppy, but a relatively smooth finish. Wheaty and moderately sweet.

Lately, I have been on a quest to find the perfect Hefe-weizen. This unfortunately, is not it. I dont smell much, and certainly do not pick up any banana or clove, as others have mentioned. At any rate, it looks nice, and doesn’t taste bad, just not as good as other hefe’s I have had lately. This has lots of wheats going on, but that’s about it. Reminds me of an American wheat beer. Pretty good on a hot summer day, but overall, a little weak.

Bottle. Cloudy orange with a huge head. Banana and yeasty aroma. Hints of grass. Sweet banana flavours, drier towards the finish with spices becoming more prominent. Sparkling, good grainy mouthfeel. Good summer beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 500ml. A cloudy pale yellow coloured pour with a huge white head. Aromas of sweet orange, banana and wheat. Not a huge amount of wheat in the flavour, but there is more banana and a nice maltiness in the background. Moderate sweetness. Alcohol becomes noticable as it warms up. A light sweet finish with some cardboard notes. High carbonation. Not just another boring wheat beer - the malt makes this one stand out from the crowd.
