overtheline (96) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 22, 2015
500ml bottle pours a cloudy orange yellow with decent white head. Aroma is great, ripe bananas and banana sweets. Taste is sweet banana. Good mouth feel a bit of body and creaminess with medium carbonation. Some warm spice comes in on the fairly short finish. Not a lot to fault. A really good hefe from scotland.

niallmole (4) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 27, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2014 500ml at home. German beers are often hit or miss for me, sometimes great but often unpleasant. This locally brewed (for me) beer gives a nice drinkable beer.

Bottle at Garyís bbq. A bit of a gusher leading to a very lively carbonation. Wheaty lemon, banana and a faint clove. Not bad for a UK hefe and another solid offerings from these dudes.

flying_pig (1199) - SCOTLAND - JUN 23, 2014
500ml Bottle from Aldi Supermarket (Scotland):
banana with clove & coriander plus some bubblegum & citrus notes. Hints of orange, lemon & spice following with a fresh & slightly tarty aroma overall.
Bright, cloudy amber to orange with a small, bubbly head about 0.5cm tall.
Banana & clove, albeit not quite as strong as the nose. Bubblegum follows with some wheat & citrus flavours plus some spice, various fruits & some floral tastes.
Smooth with a citrus tang & high carbonation, itís slightly sweet & easy to drink. It was a little lighter than I would have liked though but stayed lively & refreshing.

A surprisingly good offering & definitely worth a try but itís not as good as the more readily available German versions of the style so Iím not sure who this would appeal to other than those wanting to try a Scottish wheat beer as a one-off.
