3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle from The Allison Arms, Glasgow (£3.80):
This one was a very nice & also very traditional German style hefeweizen with all the usual suspects (banana/cloves/bubblegum/wheat) present. The beer was very easy to drink & was quite refreshing, I wouldn’t say no to another one of these but in all honesty I’d probably grab other hefeweizens before this one in future despite it being quite an enjoyable offering.

Troebel licht geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht zuur en fruitig met iets van banaan en vanille. Niet bijzonder maar zeker niet slecht.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle bought @ Landbierparadies. Pours very hazy deep yellow with a big billowing frothy white head that leaves some sparse trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity estery and slightly spicy phenolic with freshly baked white bread, wheat flour, banana bread, red pears, hay, cloves, coriander, minerals and lemon peal. Taste is tiny sweet, fruity estery and tiny spicy phenolic. Mouthfeel is soft, champagne-like, very tiny tart, slightly dry and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, slightly bitter and very tiny sour with white bread, green banana, red pears, hay, cloves, coriander, minerals and lemon zest. Bit too red pear driven to suit me... Solid hefe though...
