500ml Bottle at the Miles Thompson, Kendal 24/03/2007
Some spiced aroma. Large white head. Pale golden coloured and cloudy in appearance. Lively carbonation. Hoppy and smooth on the palate with some dryness and spiced wheat flavours in a crisp finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, pours a cloudy pale, but bright, gold with a bubbly fizzy head. A strong wheatty aroma with bananas, berries and some spice. At first deliciously effervescent and citric, but then more ash-malt towards a disappointingly dirty finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(50 cl bottle at Rotary Pub, Göteborg) A bit shady yellow color, big fluffy lasting white head. Very beautiful head when poured right. Estery banana typical hefe wiess scent, refreshing and summer like. Spicy, banana and sweet taste. Spritzy high co2 mouthfeel, like it should be in this type of beer. Low bitterness. Spicy, sweet and banana aftertaste.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Duff for bringing back. This 2003 edition expires remarkably in October 2007. A beigish tinge with a good initial head. I am divided on the aroma, it is a bit sour and wheaty, and there is a bit of lace on the way down. It is a good carbonation and drinkable, with some creaminess in the mouth.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle from Tesco. Slightly cloudy yellow with a large, loose, white head; cinnamon aroma; sweet and dry in the mouth with developing banana flavour; very dry finish. Overall a reasonable weissbier but lacking the depth of flavour of the best examples.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Opaque yellow-golden with a smallish head. Fresh banana-strawberry aroma. Very clean, almost boring, banana-fruity flavor with a slightly acidic finish. Medium-bodied, slightly sticky and foamy palate. Quite refreshing, but not very complex.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly clowded yellow, typical citrus wheat nose, and typical rounded light fruity wheat flavour.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from Tescos. A good attempt at a German wheat beer style. Cloudy gold colour with a big, off-white head. The usual aromas of banana, cloves and yeast. The flavours were the same with some lemon as well. Good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Some banana and spice in the nose, pours cloudy gold with big head and good spritzy carbonation. Quite lemony, sour wheatiness. Mouthfeel a bit thin. Aftertaste a bit murky. Not bad, but missing something.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Brygghuset, Vimmerby. Huge head, as can be expected. Aroma is in no way subtle, lots of wheat - but unfortunately reminds me of 1664’s horrible shot at the style.. Very artificial and soapy tasting. Glad I won’t have to drink this again.
