Im not a what expert but it didn’t have a huge impact. I guess it tastes like a Hefe made for a market that isnt’t into it’s hefes? fair enough really. Medium banana and sour apple nose. Full mouthfeel, wheaty. Slightly sweet citrus finish.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle from Waitrose, Kingston. Amber, slightly cloudy, highly carbonated, thick white head that vanished immediately;wheaty aroma - a trace of esters, but not as much as you’d normally expect from a Hefewiezen; refreshing with some citrus flavours and bitterness, but with musty floury overtones. Sweetish finish. Lacks most of the characteristics of a Weissbier, no spice or banana.

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.
