Bov (11181) - Bienne, - FEB 5, 2013
from Erzbierschof - slightly hazy golden-blond beer with no head retention; strong aroma of ripe banana and esters, perfumy, sticky with a high and subtle carbonation; medium-bodied, quite dry, a decent hop presence with lingering notes of banana - accurate and pretty good

Lemon hop like flavor is fairly nice though not too much of a hefe for me. Little clove flavors. Wheat flavors dominate.

Leighton (16286) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell - London. Many "thanks" to Cloin! This beer has been aged c. two years, so will be quite different than it perhaps ought to be. Pours unclear gold with a quickly fading white froth of a head. The nose holds ripe citrus, old grain and dried wheat. Medium to heavy sweet flavor, with some sugary doughy wheat. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sugary finish, with slight signs of oxidation, caramel, wheat bread. So so.

Scopey (10683) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2015
Bottle shared at Craft Clerko. Thanks to Colin who bought this old-timer for real cheap.... It pours cloudy golden with an orange hue and thick white head. The nose is sweet, oily, sweet banana candy, light must, straw and faint oxidation. The taste is sweet, banana, clove, candy, clove rock, toasty grain, straw, spice and rice pudding with a dry, sweetish finish. Medium body and decent, foamy carbonation. A bit sweet, spicy and old. Cloin is a dirtbag.

The_Osprey (4891) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle share at CBC Clerkenwell, thanks to Cloin, as ’Hoppin’ Frog Wild Frog Wheat Ale’. Undated, but possibly a touch old. Opaque orange, lightly sparkling, small foamy white head, no lacing. Aroma is plastecine, a touch sour, wheaty, plastic. Body is light, very foamy. Taste is light, papery, biscuity. Very little flavour at all. Pretty poor.

22oz bomber shared at Padraig’s 2.5k Untap tasting at CBC CW, London. Thanks to Cloin. It pours a cloudy pale golden color with a medium white bubbly head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is deeply sweet and fruit with loads of apricots and peach. Taste is medium sweet and sugary with loads of pear peach and apricots. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, sickly sweet

zoucrew102 (1088) - - AUG 8, 2015
Bomber. Wheat aroma with notes of grass, banana, clove, earthy yeast and citrus. Pours cloudy golden colored with a thin white head with minimal retention and lacing. Starts with wheat and banana flavors with grassy notes as well as some citrus. Finishes smooth with clove and earthy yeast present however near the very end there is a strong bubblegum presence that coats the palate some what unpleasantly. Pretty nice wheat but did not enjoy the bubblegum.

superspak (3984) - Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2015
22 ounce bottle into weizen glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy golden orange color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, banana, pear, apple, bubblegum, clove, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon, banana, pear, apple, bubblegum, clove, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate yeast spiciness and slight bready tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, banana, pear, apple, bubblegum, clove, wheat, bread, light honey, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy, bready, and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice hefeweizen style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
