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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20

Lightly hazed golden with a decent off white covering that soon collapses to a swirl.
Nose is pear drop, banana, yeast esters, light spice, touch of caramel and vanilla.
Taste comprises banana, butterscotch, clove, straw, yeast notes.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light woody grape notes.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy yellow with big white head. Aroma: grain, lemon zest. Light citrus taste with banana. Lightly hopped. Not a bad beer. Easy to drink

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle poured a clear golden amber with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of wheat, yeast, light butterscotch and light clove. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of wheat, yeast, light clove and a hint of banana with a smooth finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On the nose this was very yeasty and lacking in fruit. However on the taste there is all the expected banana and spice. A game of 2 halves.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
