4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Creamy head with a good strong fruity aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. Bavarian style fruit and clove characters are very well done and don’t overpower. A little too much hop bitterness at the finish.

Draft pour. The beer is a hazy gold with a big white head of foam. Very strong retention. The beer has notes of sweet fruits and dough. They claim toffee notes, but i cant pick up on them. Mild sweetness in the taste and medium carbonation.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours hazy orange, no head. Light sweet aromas. Yate brings the expected banana and light spice. Bit dull though, to be honest.

Bought at The Carry Out in Fermoy, €2.30 each for 330ml. Nice tasting but a little light compared to some other wheat beers. A lovely citrus and banana flavour comes through. Would buy again but very hard to find.

330ml bottle from Reilly’s, Lisnaskea (£1.79):
Quite a disappointing hefeweizen if I’m honest, this one was too light and thin with an fairly poor appearance as well. Thankfully the taste wasn’t a bad one with the banana and cloves flavours seeming pleasant enough but there’s plenty of much better wheat beers out there to go for over this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330mL bottle poured into a shaker. Typical Hefe aromas, unlike the native German offerings, this one tastes a bit synthetic. Bubblegum and clove flavour comes through a little strong and overly sweet. Nice summer refresher though.
