2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Beer Hawk. Light golden colour, poured with a thickish white layer of foam. So far so good. Doesn’t smell of too much. Hmm doesn’t taste of too much either. It’s not completely unpleasant, but does taste a bit like an adjuncty lager. Nothing finish. As a beer, disappointment. As a cold drink, passable.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk. Dirty cloudy orange with no head. Watery taste with no duration. Hardly any aroma - slight malt. Really not deserving of the hefeweizen tag - more a dirty coloured pale lager.

Pours a hazy gold with a good white head. Some classic wheat beer aromas - banana and, funnily enough, wheat. Taste is OK, not much to impress you with though. Light body, bit thin, lively carbonation. OK.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Poured a bright, hazy straw with a medium-sized white head. Aroma and flavor were lots of grain, fake-tasting banana, bitter citrus. Awful -- drain pour. Very disappointed -- I expected much better from Pyramid.

Bottle, from Rhythm & Booze, Brigg. Hazy gold, moderate and sustained white head and gentle condition. Gentle peppery spiciness, slight caramel and banana in the nose, soft and sweet in the mouth with a muted spicy yeastiness and low banana ester notes, lingering sweet yeastiness in the finish with a brief tingle of bitterness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Stubby bottle. Cloudy orange with a thick white cloud of a head. Wheat and banana with a dash on honey on the nose. Lots in the mouth, with honeys, banana, some peach and more wheat. Finish imparts yet more honey and is incredibly pleasant to sup. Smooth, easy drinking.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Characteristic aroma of wheat and honey. It's deliciously aromatic for a hefeweizen with flowery hints.
The appearance is a bit disappointing. I like a good head on my hef. It had barely a head, almost like the head on a sour! The look is wheaty and nice.
The taste is less interesting than the aroma. However, it's still pretty decent. Just nothing surprising. Lovely wheaty, malty, honey like taste with a well balanced palate.
A decent hefeweizen. More head and a bit more complexity would have certainly been enjoyed.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
355ml Bottle, The Cave Glasgow (£1.89):
Cloudy orange colour with tinges of amber and a foamy, white coloured head on top that holds well.
Seemed like a pale lager with a combination of grain and corn. There was some very light, almost non-existent bana and faint lemon notes.
Some grain, a little corn and some faint grassy hops with some touches of lemon. There was some non-distinct fruits lingering in the background and perhaps some orange but it was a pretty bland beer.
Smooth & quite crisp but very dry and slightly too gassy thanks to the very strong carbonation. Again it was quite a bland beer but proved fairly easy to finish.
A poor beer to be honest and not one I’ll be looking to pick up again, even if it was on special. There beer is not a good representation of that style, at a push you could probably label it a wheat ale but it is definitely not a hefeweizen.
