culchiem (2518) - 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.

BeerViking (2469) - 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.

Dorwart (2374) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Thin white head which does not last long and mild carbonation. Hazy medium golden orange. Aroma is biscuity malts, decaying straw and some orange and wheat. Somewhat flat mouthfeel with more straw and wheat. Sort of sickly sweet malt backbone. Chalky mouthfeel. Mediocre brew.

zacgillbanks (2302) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Gateshead. A hazy straw coloured beer with lemon and banana flavours, malty and grassy notes with a sweet, spicy finish.

stravale (2099) - 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).

tomer (1697) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 23, 2014
Draught, small stable creamy head, light cloudy plae gold colour, aroma of yeast and wheat with a buttery hint, strong almond flavour with some wheat notes, strong and a bit coarse bitterness, no sourness. Not the best of weizens.

mzaar (1608) - 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.
