AssKicker (182) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - JUL 14, 2016
Couleur ambrée, mousse généreuse mais qui disparaît immédiatement. Pointe d’acidité au nez, couplée au blé. En bouche ça sent le CO2, avec une acidité faisant penser au Champagne, mais avec un relent métallique derrière. La carbo disparait rapidement et au final on se retrouve avec une bière plate à tous les niveaux. Nulle, la moitié de la bouteille a fini à l’évier...

Bottle at the Crown Rivers, Heathrow airport, 20.4.16. Lightly cloudy golden orange with a white head. Dusty plastic, green banana and a little bubblegum in the nose, a little spicy, a little bit of banana and also plastic. Full body, fizzy, pleasing finish with hints of orange bitterness. Nice.

I_LUV_BEER (142) - - MAY 7, 2016
Served in a tulip from a 330ml bottle. Pours clear gold with a fast diminishing white head. Aroma is lemon, herbs and a bit grassy. Taste is clean, with grass and some bready notes and barely detected bitterness. Slightly watery body with medium carbonation. Easy to drink and refreshing but not the best.

LazyPyro (480) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy pale orange-yellow colour with a small white head which rapidly disappears. Aroma of wheat, yeast, citrus fruits, mild spicing. Flavour is wheat, tart citrus fruit mostly lemon, cloves... not getting much banana in this one. Sweet, slightly sour, with moderate bitterness. A bit overcarbonated. A good effort from Meantime but once again we Brits don’t do this style justice in my opinion.

thellgren (758) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2015
pint draugth @ Meantime Brewery, London. Quite nice hefeweizen. In a tight upper lip way. Not much of a banana, more on the clover side. Which is nice before Chrisitmas as I am drinking this now. I would prefer little more banana, but nevermind this is quite gooe anyway.
