2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Hazy golden body with no head or lacing. Steady carbonation. Aroma of foam bananas and cereal dust. Flavour of metal, chalky lemon and pithy orange. Thin body with a watery texture. Soft fizz. A very disappointing effort - dull, lifeless and criminally thin. It’s been a while since I’ve had a great Thornbridge beer...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
English interpretation of Hefeweizen (label says "Weisse beer") with thick, fluffy, off-white head and hazy golden blonde colour. Yeasty aroma, banana, apple, thyme; fruity and wheaty taste, some banana and apple but in a restrained kind of way, sourish but otherwise rather neutral, with some grassy hops in the finish. Not quite there yet, even when compared with the big German Hefeweizen brands - too low profile for me. I prefer my Hefeweizens opulent, rich, seductive and mouth-filling and this one is just a bit beneath all that.
