3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle purchased in Sydney and hauled back. Really small, unimpressive head for a hefe, aroma is also quite subdued. Flavor is something else, classic banana and bubblegum, with some nice tartness and musty wheat backbone. Crisp and dry finish, great summer session-er if not for the high price (and, if you’re not located in Australia, the availability).

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Straw coloured white thin white head that dissapeared quickly. Strong bubblegum, banana and other tropical fruits aroma. Sour flavour matched well with sweet malt and the hops presence is noticable. Excellently balanced. High carbonation. Taste like a real ’hef’, yeasty, bananas, bubblegum. Very enjoyable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle) First few mouthfuls were chock a block full of the typically expected banana, clove and vanilla aromas & flavours.
Colour was a bit on the pale side for my liking.
Once the head was slurped up, the rest of the glass did not have a massive amount of flavour, but I thought it was a fairly good example of the style.
Would try again, but a bit pricey.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (330ml). Poured a muddy pale straw color with a small rocky head which was mostly diminishing. Aroma was of sour dough-like malts with freshly made apple juice, dried banana’s, lemon sorbet, cinnamon and some straw. Flavor was similar to aroma with a sour-dough bitterness, lemon zest, fresh apple juice, hints of pears, dried banana’s (mild), straw and some cinnamon. Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation, a dry/creamy mouthfeel, watery texture and a good finish. Quite sessionable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
...bottle from some bottleshop. Nice flavor, mainly from the wheat malt. Head lacks retention, fades too quickly for a Hefe. Bannana notes, slight spicyness makes this a decent attempt at the father of all beer styles, the Hefe-Weizen. Worth a try, but very expensive.
