stravale (2478) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle from Tesco Longford [301113]
Orange, hazy, frothy white head that quickly dissipates, slight lacing
Aroma - soft sweet wheat, touch of banana, hubba bubba bubble gum, quite fruity
Taste - Soft sweet quite fruity malts, wheat, dab of orange, bubble gum, slight apricot, some spicy clove notes coming through, soft flavours
Palate - Medium carb, medium body, bit powdery texture, finding it rather too sweet though. Finish - light bitter spicy, smooth, rapid finish
Overall - Lacking guts, bit too sweet, but easy and smooth. Quite a decent soft Hefeweizen (I’m not that keen on ones that are overpowering).

Creedence (286) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2013
Keg at Franciscan Well. Pours a cloudy golden with a lasting white head. Clove heavy spicy aroma. Strong sweetness with light sourness and light bitterness - a lot of clove, banana and lactic acid in the flavour. Tart clove sweet aftertaste with a full body and reasonably lively carbonation. Not a huge Hefeweizen fan, but this is pretty solid.

mzaar (2023) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2013
Flaska som hälls upp dimmigt orange med vitt skum. En rätt trevlig weissbier, där dofter av citron och apelsinskal når näsan. Detsamma i smaken plus koriander, banan och en gräsig beska.
