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.

Bottle. Cloudy orange appearance which is not very inviting. Not a lot of flavour although there is a presence of wheat and fruitiness. Did not impress.

Bottle, from Tesco Cleethorpes. Hazy orange gold, thin shortlived white head and moderate condition. Low fruity esters, hints of lemon citrus and a slight spiciness in the nose, dry and slightly yeast bitter with a faintly estery fruitiness that has a low infected edge to it, dry yeasty finish with some clove notes lingering.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the Porterhouse (Central)
Pours a very hazy yellow with a small-ish head.
The aroma is the perfect combination of spicy banana on clove. The beer smells sweet but it’s aromatic and spot on for a hefeweizen.
The flavor is spicy and not overly sweet at all, the banana is just right without being cloying or overbearing. The beer is fairly clean all around, or at least as clean as a hefeweizen can be. The level of spice is low to style.
Remarkably true to style, no way this wouldn’t pass as a true German made Hefe in a blind taste test.

Franciscan Well 17/05/06. This one was called Friar Wiesse when I visited there in May. Some cloves in the taste and aftertaste was of cinnamon - at first it was almost a cinnamon burn. Strong cinnamon nose. This was a bit different to most wheat beers that I have tried and I quite liked this one because of its difference.
