ComradeK (1058) - The Vale of Dundas, - JAN 25, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy light gold, with a tiny and rapidly fading white head, which leaves no lace. It is very typically weizen in aroma, with banana and cloves prominent. Faint lemon up front leads through some cloves into sweet banana in the mid-palate. Cloves and some spicy yeast notes come through in the finish. I am usually pretty suspicious of non-German hefeweizens, but this one is a credible, if somewhat simplistic, effort. Whilst it is not terribly complex, it is a nice, highly refreshing summer beer.

Well balanced wheat bear. Nice aroma and flavour that one would expect from Bavaria.

monoroc (49) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Pours cloudy yellow color with a small head. Apart from the mandatory banana aroma, there is also quite an orangey one present. Tasting banana, lemon and a certain acidity. Not as complex as other hefeweizen, but quite alright.

Danev76 (506) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2014
Light fruity aroma. Cloudy pale amber colour with poor head. Very smooth flavor with a nice finish. Light to medium body with creamy feel and low carbonation.

jonnyguns (1090) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle. Quite carbonated. Nose is very yeasty and full of banana and spices. Taste is more banana, yeast, bready malts and spice. Not my thing

ALLOVATE (2486) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2013
Cap releases with little noise at all. It pours softly and settles headless bar a ring of white. Fine carbonation streams amid it hazy, pastel yellow body. Nose has hints of lemon cordial, mace, clove and matchsticks, light rubber and white grapejuice. Quite tangy and tight on the palate with a dominant flavour of underripe banana and sour lemon juice. A little perfume musk lingers. Grainy, pasty mouthfeel with a dry, wheat malt and clove finish. Low carbonation with a medium-light body. Alright drinking stuff but far from groundbreaking. (33cL, labelled Hefeweizen, BB 28/01/14, Liquor Baron’s Ocean Reef)

Maris (1042) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 4, 2013
From a 330ml bottle on 4/10/2013 (labelled ’Hefeweizen’ rather than ’Wheat Beer’). Pours a cloudy straw with very little head. The aroma features some clove, spice and some earthy yeast. The flavour is fairly typical for a hefe, with banana, clove, some spicy notes and a touch of lemon. Has a medium body and lively carbonation. Okay but far from inspiring.

gnoff (8005) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2013
Bottled, stubbie shared on two, during the brewery tour at Moorilla Estate Brewery, Winery, and Gallery, Hobart, on August 9, 2013.
As their "Hefeweizen".
Hazy yellow color, fluffy white head. Sweet, estery banana, phenolic clove, some smoke scent. Malty, sweet, banana taste. Banana aftertaste. Medium to fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness.

mattyhennessy (353) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2013
Pours a cloudy yellow/gold. Banana and citrus are most evident. Quite light bodied for an unfiltered beer. Not overly complex, however it has strong tastes of citrus peels. Particularly orange and lemon peel. It’s rare to find a decent non-German hefeweizen, but this passes the test.

Niksko (385) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 10, 2013
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a finger of white foamy head. Nose banana, clove, light orange peel. Taste is more banana, clove, bread dough, and a crisp bitterness. Not bad but simple and not very strong flavours.
