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.

This is not hefeweisen. It is flat and tasteless. You expect foam and time for the beer to settle. This beer has no foam at all. Aside from being cloudy, it is otherwise like a lager.

330 mL bottle. Gold pour with a slight haze, tall fizzing white head that quickly disperses to a thin cap sustained only by the highly effervescent body. Aroma is cereal grains, yeast, some lighter fruit. Taste is more citrus, mild bitter finish. Lighter body and a high carbonation make for easy drinking but there’s a lack of flavour.

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.

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.

Hazy yellow colour, with a white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of wheat and yeast. Taste matches with a taste of malted barley.

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 ...
