mikeschuld (52) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - OCT 12, 2011
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.

jjsint (498) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2014
330 ml bottle from Tesco, enjoyed at home. Scrumpy orange with almost no head. It had that glorious here aroma of banana with some orange peel and toast. The taste is sweet, almost synthetic, with a fairly sickly aftertaste. Watery palette. Shame because I do enjoy hefeweizens, and I was looking forward to this but it’s not great.

330ml bottle from Tesco - Pale cloudy yellow body, thin white head. Nose is the expected banana and clove, the taste follows as such. Nice and fresh.

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.

stravale (1898) - 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).
