[2176-20090520] Tap. Sweet fruity yeast aroma with strawberry or raspberry leaves. Clear, medium orange body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Some banana esters and green twigs flavour with mild sweet floral cardboard corn notes. Medium body is tangy. Seems fresh, average.

Bottle from Tesco, Dublin. Hazy amber colour with a very thin head. Not the most obvious of wheat styles, it’s got a fruitiness including some citrus orange and there’s pale malts in here too. It’s quite a decent drink though.

Braudog (6220) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Draft at the brewpub, even served in a nice weizen glass. Straight outta Munich, this delivers the requisite banana, clove and yeast. Very well done and smack dab in style. (#3666, 9/13/2009)

33cl bottle from Tesco’s, Camberley. Hazy amber with a billowing white head; hint of banana and cloves an the aroma; sweet grainy body with a touch of spice. True to style, but not very exciting.

The_Osprey (5561) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
330ml from Supervalu Newry, drank in Crossmaglen watching Eurovision. Bottled March 2015 at 4.7%. Hazy orange, sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is resin, bubblegum, glue, musty wheat and straw. A bit chemically and pungent. Body is medium, slightly foamy, soft carbonation. Taste is hay, resin, soft ester, dry and wheaty. Average at best.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Draft @ brewpub. Cloudy orange with small thight head. Banana aroma. Thin but nicely flavored brew. Soft. Mellow banana esters lead to a doughy finish. All round decent, though.

AshtonMcCobb (4994) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 19, 2014
On the nose this was very yeasty and lacking in fruit. However on the taste there is all the expected banana and spice. A game of 2 halves.

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2009
Tap@PorterhouseDublin. Light fruity aroma with hops notes. Cloudy, yellow colour, white head, good lace. Sweetish, bitter, hops, hint of banana, lightly spiced. Medium body. Not much like a real German Hefeweizen. I like those sweeter and fuller.
