Great Hefeweizen. Pours into an intense golden, hazy color with a nice head. Citrus taste, grassy, with hints of ginger and orange. Very refreshing.

Hazy golden pour...huge billowy head...yeasty spicy nose. The flavors are traditional citrus/banana/clove/grass...somewhat more muted than I generally like, but refreshing enough. I’ve had many better hefeweizens...but I’m a sucker for the style anyway.

Botte. This beer bring me back to München! Good memories!!! So, this darkish golden color with a very nice creamy white head whith some notes of banana and cinnamon, the taste is a little bit bitter and mouthfeel is refreshing and bitter.

On tap at Beyond at Frankfurt Airport. Wheaty flavour, also of oranges, lemon, banana and malt. A bit spicy. Very creamy. Enjoyable.

Bottle (decided I had to rate a Hefe for German beer #500 and Wheat beer #300). Ripe banana, lemon and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy orange-yellow color with a nice big head. Tart lemon/orange with a strong wheat malt flavor. A very good Hefe - seemed to hold up better than most German Hefes that are imported to the US.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at The Spencer Arms in Putney (London), poured a very cloudy amber with a foamy head that didn’t last long. Strong clove and corriander in the spritzy lemon and yeast aroma. A light and refreshing palate at first, even slightly bitter, though a bit watery maybe. But then very sweet and a little syrupy in the finish. There are some strong ratinsg here and I wouldn’t go that far (just not enough flavour), but it was pleasant on a warm evening.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yeast, chemical-like solvent aroma that sourt of scrubbs the nostrils, banana is present but mild. The body is a cloudy yellow and holds a lasting, fuffluy, white head that is a full two fingers thick. Rich grains and banana in the fore. Fairly dry and lower in flavor concentration than many classic Hefe’s like Paulaner, Tucher and others. Seems to be much more carbonated than other hefes too. I sort of like it, but I am sort of put off too.

The taste isn’t quite as complex as others of this style, but this is still a pretty solid Hefeweizen.

Pint on tap @ the Bridge House, SE1. Cloudy yellow body, strong head and lacing. All the hallmark hefe flavours that I won’t bore you with. Its strength is its exceptional smoothness. With out doubt the easiest Hefe I’ve had to drink - velvety orangy blossom sweetness, heavily carbonated but it retains its effervescence so well. Its like drinking liquid silk. If you see this beer on tap make sure you try it.
