3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Market Porter. Very pale golden beer, bright citrus and a light cidery sourness. Lots of wheaty aroma and flavour. Spicy with a lingering lemony citrus character. A soft clovey character accentuates the beer. Not really a hefe, more of a Belgian wit, but I quite like it.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at Brew Wharf in Southwark. Cloudy light apricot. Dull and headless looks for a wheat. Fairly light aroma leads towards fruity peach-like notes covered in not so fresh hay-like wheat with a strong grassiness. Off-fruitiness accompanies us all along. Quite phenolic with mild rubber hints. Lacking in freshness with its almost rotting flavours. Poor fizzy, agressive palate.

Nose is fresh and citrussy but a bit too yeasty. Pours orange with a quickly dissipating head. Flavour starts well but develops a nasty acidity. Mouthfeel is over carbed. All in all pretty rubbish.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is wheat mixed in a lager. Sadly, the same goes for the flavour, so I didn’t find the beer pleasant at all.

On tap at Brew Wharf. Small head, cloudy golden body. Looks like a Larger. Yeast and wheat gives way to bags of fruit - oranges, lemon and cider apples. Shortish blackcurrent finish. Not a typical hefe in terms of looks or flavours, but a nice beer all the same.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2009 Bottle. Cloudy amber with a decent, long-lasting white head. Aroma was mainly yeasty with a touch of cloves. Flavour of bananas, but this was more subdued than with many other hefeweizens, and some more spice with a dry finish. Ok.

For the price, good value. As as deep as other wheat beers. Didn’t believe label that there would banana, but I’m a believer after drinking it. Lots of flavour kick upfront that lasts, but sweet enough not to have a bitter aftertaste. Definitely not a strong tasting beer.

Large 660ml Bottle. This poured hazy and Golden and was a bit lively. Detected some banana’ish’ flavour in there and was quite sweet. Can’t say I am overly familiar with this style but seemed a pretty decent effort.
