caesar (5649) - 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.

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.

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.

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.

berkshirejohn (5018) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2008
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.
