3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Phone rate. $6 draught. Cloudy bright gold with 2 1/2 finger white, hood retention. Mod to high banana, mod spicy clove, wheat backend, as expected. Flavor still dominates with banana , wheat following with a little less clove behind. A tad sweet, but maybe it’s the bananas. Semi-dry, bitterness minimal. Mod prickly carbonation with a medium body. Craftsman still makes the best US made German hefe, IMO, as I like the wheat and clove more than the banana. This would be 2 or 3 on my list, however.

On Draught@Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Hazy yellow colour with a fairly small white head. Some yeast and citrus in the nose. Lively carbonation. Quite a big hit of sourness in the flavour. A strange and frankly not the greatest interpretation of the style, which seemed to miss out on many of the key traits inherent to Hefeweizens.

On tap. Pours an opaque golden with hardly any head. Dry, citrusy nose with a whiff of yeast. Medium body, lively carbonation, dry citrusy notes - quite tart actually. Not that many banana or yeast accents. Very mediocre, yet still more authentic than most American attempts at a Hefe. 230111
