2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0,5l can. Hazy yellow color with quickly disappearing head. Aroma is wheat, yeast and banana. Taste is wheat and banana, somehow unpleasant, but not too bad. A little bit watery. This is not really a good hefeweizen, but at least it’s cheap and not too offensive.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Lidl, Budapest. Hazy yellow-orange colour, with white head that disappeared quickly. Yeasty aroma with some banana, but a bit unpleasant. Taste is sweet, with banana. Little bit metallic. Nothing spectacular, but at least its cheap, and still better than some of the so called ’premium’ beers here in Hungary.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml can, from Lidl, Ikast. ABV is 5.0%. Cloudy pale greyish-yellow colour, large to moderate white head. The aroma has "unfresh" and unpleasant notes of cooked vegetables, also rotting vegetables and fruits, the normal h.w. notes of banana and cloves are only there in the background. The flavour is better than the aroma, not too sweet and fairly refreshing, with moderate notes of cloves and hints of citrus and banana. The body is thin and rather watery. Apparently it is a principle for Lidl not to stock any really GREAT beers, so enjoy it if you can..

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml PET bottle from Lidl in Munich. Pours a cloudy orange colored body with a two finger-width, foamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate soapy lacing. Aroma has a light wheat malt sweetness, some yeast, banana, and a bit of a clove spice. Flavor is similar. Some yeasty spice and clove phenols throughout with a bit of a banana ester fruitiness and a lightly sweetened, somewhat grainy wheat malt backing. Finishes clean and somewhat dry before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Medium, smooth body and a soft, somewhat active carbonation. Overall, this is definitely not a great hefe, but it’s not that bad for the price. Easy drinking, smooth, and fairly enjoyable.
