I_LUV_BEER (78) - - 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 (366) - 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 (684) - 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.

jjsint (2040) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Keg at the Grain Store, Cambridge. Orangey gold, cloudy. Very little head. Smells of banana, bubblegum, yeast rolls. The taste is overly sweet, not bad but fairly unbalanced. Meh. Short to medium finish. Drinkable but not a great wheat beer.
