Nice attempt at a hefe weiss... Good flavours, nice esters, complex, enjoyable. For a tiny brewery, well done!

KapitiCritique (345) - Xincheng, Henan Province, CHINA - JUN 21, 2010
500 ml bottle Aroma: distinctive sour milk, fruit (apple?), cinnamon Appearance: Massive head dissipating to large thick lumps, thick lacing hazy brown gold; Taste: strong, sour and bitter and mildly sweet; Palate: slightly sticky, average carbonation, slightly sweet and astringent finish; Overall: Oh boy, Gets out of the glass and grabs you. Kind of a wanna be lambic with Weizenbier presumptions.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 28, 2010
Bottle. Has the right esters on the nose - banana and bubblegum. On the palate, there is a good bitterness that cuts through the sweetness, balancing it out. This is tasting pretty good.

DuffMan (7030) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2009
Bottle, purchased at Regional Wine & Spirits in Wellington. Pours a cloudy honey gold with a thick white meringue of a head that remained until the finish and left complex lacing down the whole glass. Aromas of banana, vanilla, subtle spices and wheat. Creamy mouthfeel with delicious banana, lemon, vanilla flavours. Finish has a tartness and mild bitterness with an aftertaste suggestive of unroasted almonds. Complex and very good.

sdk (33) - Island Bay, NEW ZEALAND - APR 24, 2009
500ml bottle. Pours a cloudy golden orange, good white head. Yeasty, banana nose with a little hint of orange. Not getting the sulphur smell. Mouth feel and taste is a little weak, but it’s a nice balance of banana and yeast. Not the best example of style but drinkable.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2008
(Bottle 50 cl) Clear, orangey golden with a huge, rough and bubbly, white head. Lots of yeast and diacetyl in the aroma and some banana. Medium body with a fairly high carbonation and some sweet banana notes. There’s a distinct yeastiness and lots of diacetyl. The finish is dry. Hefe is a diffucult style to make a great brew of, but for a tiny brewery this is not at all a bad attempt. 190208

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 14, 2007
Tasted 17/08/2007. 500ml bottle from "Lounge", Carterton. Pale yellow-gold, very hazy. Nose isa concoction of sulphur, wheat, cornflour, glue and a little orange. Very tart - wheat-foccussed - in the mouth, with a sprtizy mouthfeel and more fruit and sulphur in the fnish. Lacking the banana and clove of a traditional hefeweizen and appears to be a little problematic in the secondary fermentation department (if not primary).
