3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from Germany. Poors a hazy light orange with creamy head. Aroma is distinguishly banana. Taste is also banana, cream and a milkshake style. Citrus notes in the end, sweetness but not too much. It’s exactly what you expect from a Weissbier, only this time the banana flavour is very present, which is quite enjoyable. Overall a pretty simple beer, not complex, a little bit too much carbonated but gives a great experience and a remarkable banana taste!

Keg at Draft House on Northcote Road. Fairly light with hints of yeast, citrus and banana. Decent enough session beer but I found it a bit boring.

Une blanche typé à la robe dorée, fine mousse et au nez sur la farine et les céréales sur un fond fruité. La bouche est fraîche et équilibrée et l’ensemble est raffraîchissant. Belle bière de soif.

50 cl. bottle @ home, gift from Rick.
Hazy golden with a big white head. Wheaty yeasty aroma with the usual banana and slightly unusual citrus. Taste is typical weizen, Body is a bit thin for a weizen. Overal very drinkable but there are numerous better weizen out there.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at The Schoolhouse, Battersea. 05/08/16. Aroma - sweet FA. Yeasy? Pale gold, bordering on a hazy yellow. Fluffy white head. Looks like it’ll be a great beer... however for me the ’helle’ element comes in to play. Initially quite interesting due to the carbonation from the head, but then that’s it. Watery and flat. Initiap sourness, before a sweetness comes through. The weisse equivilant of a pale ale:(

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from a bottle shop in Hamburg. Fruity smell with the typical wheat beer aromas like foam banana, also a light spicy aroma. Similar taste. Slightly sweet in the finish. Nice and very drinkable.

Hazy yellow with a hint of green and little white head. Aroma is soap (bubblegum?) Yeast and some light fruits. Taste is better: much carbonation induced sourness with a little fruity sweetness. Mouthfeel is spicy bubbly with medium body. Medium finish with more yeast. Overall a little worse than average. Not my favourite.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Maker: Weißbierbrauerei Hopf (Schörghuber), Miesbach, Germany ***
Beer: Hopf Helle Weiße (bottled, 500ml) ***
Style: Hefeweizen (cloudy wheat) ***
ALC.VOL.: 5.5% ABV ***
"Typical in its wheat beer aroma, this classic wheat beer has a slightly fruity taste, is golden yellow in colour and a light yeast haze, topped by a fine head. Its unique character is thanks to Hopf’s own pure yeast culture." [brewery notes] ***
Colour: Bright hazy yellow, with a big, fluffy white head. ***
Aroma: Lemon(!), clove, ripe banana. ***
Texture: Medium body, not fizzy at all, slightly oily indeed. Moderate carbonation. ***
Taste: Fruity at first, mildly sweet: Banana, lemon, sweetish yeast. Spicier towards the middle, still a bit sweet but lemony, too. Yeasty finish, only very mild bitterness, but a bit of refreshing sourness. Medium-long aftertaste of yeast and lemon. ***
Impressions: Eminently drinkable traditional German wheat beer with strong fruit and yeast flavours. Very smooth, but not devoid of character. Without a doubt one of the best Hefeweizens I’ve tried. Of course, wheat beers vary less in taste than other beer styles.
