2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Coop - Phillips Showcase mixer. Pours a clear golden yellow with no haziness to speak of. Bubbly white head dissipates quickly. Has the look of sparkling apple juice. Aroma is heavy on yeast, mild fruitiness (banana), very mild herbal note.. Taste is quite sweet, and doesn’t have the natural grainy tones, or any of the mouthfeel of your typical hefeweisen. Sure doesnt look like a hefe, either. Not exciting - unsure if possibly a bad bottle.

The Great BrewDad Victoria Pub Crawl 2014 - Amber in color with a thin white head. Nice wheat flavors this was a very good rendition of a Hefe.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Hazy golden yellow with a rapidly fading white head that eventually leaves nothing. Aroma: Strong orange/lemon peel, wheat, pepper, spice...honestly smells more like a saison. Taste: bitter, sour and bready. I get citrus quite strongly as well which suggests the addition of peel. Flavours taste more like a saison. Palate: Thin, very refreshing, co2 medium, my favorite thing about this beer. Overall a great beer for what it is but a weizen? Nice try.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Jaune pale, pas trop brumeux, avec une mousse moyenne blanche. C’est clairement une bière du blé dans l’arôme et goût, mais un hefeweisen? Hmmm.

Not a bad wheat but of course it cannot replace the German versions. It’s like the weaker cousin of the real thing. The flavour of bananas and cloves is what makes a Hefe and this one is too muted.

no - not if you’re a hefe fan - not this particular bottle at any rate - hopefully it was a fluke and the next two in the taster’s pack will be much better - if so, I’ll amend my comments/rating, but for now ...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Really quite awful. Pours a light hazy hay with a tint of orange in the body. The head is soapy and dies instantly. The nose is lightly wheated with a off citrus and metallic aroma. The flavor has a bit of unpleasantness with a light taste of wheat and citrus. The yeast is poorly pronounced. Overall...very bland.

341ml bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a finger of white head that settles quickly leaving a few spots of lace on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and cereal grains with a hint of yeast. Taste is a bold citrusy bitterness with some malty and fruity sweetness to balance. Light bodied with abundant carbonation leaving a nice tingle on the palate. Quite a nice refreshing hefe.
