bluevegie (3070) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2008
Light orange / golden body with a fairly decent head. Soft cloves in the aroma that comes a little more dominant in the taste, a little banana and good carbonation. Decent and probably like it better than the grand cru.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2008 Bottles. Golden haze streaming with fizz and swirling bits. Fine authentic snout with bags of peppery spice, wood, banana esters, lemon curd. Opens with an alarming TCP note softening into candy cigarettes, watery banana, light wheaty sourness. Definitely a bum note of antiseptic. Unconvincing. (Re-rate, on top of a Weihenstephaner) Good peppery banana nasal overlaps. Asti-like spritz and delicate wood. Apple, white grape and antiseptic again. Watery finish, flimsy body, deranged carbonation. Feels more like a champagne yeast has been used than a Bavarian. Needs some tweaking, but almost pretty good.

dj (553) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2008
Bottle, 330ml. A hazy golden colour with a good head. Aroma of yeasty bread dough, with some hints of lime. Taste has malt with a little wheat, dough and citrus. Highly carbonated. More reminiscent of a lager than a hefeweizen.

caesar (6129) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2008
Tap @ Market Poter. Definitely not a german hefeweizen, more like a Hoegaerdse Das. Quite spicy, caramel. Slight fruity, slight banana.

vadersnightcap (80) - SCOTLAND - JUL 21, 2008
Very pretty little bottle. highly carbonated. far too much sediment even for a wheat beer. spicy clove and not much else. Not hops at all. Very bland.

Lunkie (1664) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2008
Bitter malt hop aroma. Murky yellow gold colour with great head and lacing. Bitter malt flavour with smokey spice. Fizzy palate.

Bov (11155) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 4, 2008
courtesy of Laurent Mousson (WBA) - clear golden-bronze colour with a poor head retention; aroma of pear with a touch of cloves; astringent and medium-bodied; some sweetness below; the finish is phenolic with a late undefined spicy touch and some alcohol notes

bhensonb (13206) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 25, 2008
330 ml bottle; BB 07 03 09. Light banana and wheat aromas. Hazy gold amber color with a white head. Medium body and carbonation. Flavors of banana, wheat, coriander (?) and probably a bit of clove. Finish is dry, and spice tingles the mouth.

A Mes rate: Keg at the Market Porter.
Cloudy golden brown with a thin white head. Bland an lager-like with some slight wheat and paper and bready finish. Next!

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.
