3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Cloudy golden with a foamy white head. Banana and clove hefe notes but just a liitle awry. I haven’t had a German Hefe from outside Germany that truly emulates the indigenous ones. This was nice in a slightly different way.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is classic Hefeweizen with banana and a mild hint of cloves. The taste is more unusual, with a peppery and almost smoky tang over and above the sweetness of the malt. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Alesela
Amber...light haze...bubbly effervescent head that dissipates fairly quickly
Aroma...light banana..hint of pear..some wheat..bit of a sour tinge...don’t get the cloves...aroma quite light
Taste - quite sweet malts...light banana...soft bready yeast...slight sour note...gentle flavour
Palate - medium carb...thinnish body...soft texture..Finish as main flavour...rapid finish
Overall - Not really like a German hefeweizen - wasn’t keen on it first, hint of sourness, rather unusual, but the score went up towards the end of the bottle - I quite liked it but its still a bit hit and miss.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle, Coppers8til8, Newcastle. A large foaming head on top of a deep murky orange beer. Very authentic, more than a hint of sourness, probably a result of the blueberries. Quite a dry finish, a hint of peat in the aroma, loads of clove and herb on the palate, with banana and bubblegum also present.
