Fresh with an intensive lemon taste. Doesn’t look like a real Hefeweizen though: not enough fermentation, i.e. froth. And also not tasting yeasty enough, imho.

Theydon_Bois (12076) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2015
Keg at Underbelly, SD, 15/11/14. Hazed golden orange with a well appointed off white head. Nose is spice, light tropical fruit notes, apricot, straw. Taste comprises tangy apricot, yeast esters, clove, tangerine, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Nice refreshing beer but not really true to the style as I know it, fair dose of hops and a big tropical fruit infusion, tasty.

"a little light and weak for my taste, even as hefes go. the aroma is weaker than the lemon added on the glass, so nothing great there. the yeast and clove/banana flavors don’t really come out from the shadow of the citrus. not one of their better ones."

On tap at Wurst. Pours a pale golden color with a bit of head. Mild wheat malt flavor. Bit sharp.

Fresh on tap at the brewery. Gold, clear, off-white head. Great banana-clove German hef yeast character, nice wheat malt character, finishes with a bread-cracker malt character. Balanced. I’m rating this higher than most people, and maybe the freshness factors in. This beer was a very nice German hef yeast character showcase and was well-made.

Draft as part of a flight at Sudwerk in Davis, CA. Clear lemonade yellow with off-white head. Aromas of yeast, banana, light spices, herbs. Tastes of banana yeast, herbs. Light body with a dry finish.

Guerde (1210) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2014
(bottle from Sparky, thanks!) Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a significant amount of fizzy carb jetting up the glass and a medium white fluffy head. Aroma contains a ton of stale bread, light skunk, perhaps coriander, and maybe a little bit of funk. Smells more like an attempt at a belgian ale than a hefeweizen. Flavor tastes a little more reminiscent of the style, with an abundant amount of wheat bread, faint banana chip, lingering lemon, with a snappy, dry finish that could be mistaken for being bitter. Mouthfeel is creamy and carb is spot on. Overall this isn’t an exemplar of the style, but it’s pretty refreshing and would make for a nice summer session beer.

BOSSbrewer (2507) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow with about one inch of white foamy head. Wheaty and yeasty on the nose with some spice. Flavor falls flat a bit. Finishes somewhat dry. Overall refreshing.

DiarmaidBHK (3682) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine Glendale. Pours opaque yellow with a half inch of white foam. Not much on the nose. A bit fruity on the tongue but not particularly bright or interesting. Finishes dry. Eh!
