Keg@ L Mulligan Grocer, Dublin Hazy orange-blonde with fluffy white head. Lots of bananas on the nose with a light body, a touch of phenol and more banana.

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.

johndoughty (4986) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2014
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.

BeerViking (4144) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Tap at EBBC14, cloudy amber, light citrus and banana nose, initially dry then fruity, gentle hoppiness in the finish. Intriguing interpretation of a Hefeweiss.

CanIHave4Beers (4020) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 19, 2012
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.

rauchbier (3803) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2014
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.

culchiem (3516) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2012
Draught at O’Neills Dublin. Deep honey colour with a thin head. Wheat and honey aroma. Flavour is dry wheat with some honey, quite flat, lacks a bit of zest.

The head is ok, the body orange and cloudy. It smells fruity, hoppy, refreshing, aromatic, yeasty. The taste is fresh-yeasty, a bit fruity, refreshing, bit citrus, wheatmalty. Nice 12/12/12/12/-/12
