500ml bottle - a light amber, careful as I poured , slight haze. Aroma - fresh fruity one, is it banana-like. Taste - yeasty, some grassy note, also on the sour side fo the spectrum, rather than bitter on the finish.

Scotland; Thistly cross beer fest. The highlight beer of the festival along with Black Gold. Very nuanced with a depth of fruity yeast flavours. A cask winner.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Hanging Bat. Cloudy pale gold, thin white head. The aromas are not strong with this one. Not getting any hefe-banana. Touch of dried pale fruits if anything. Apricot, lemon. Quite refreshing, but would be better with more carbonation.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Hanging Bat, Edinburgh. Hazy golden with fluffy white head. Some citrus and sweetness on the nose. Flavour follows through in the mouth. Medium bitterness and light sweet, some sour yeastiness. Not as sweet and wheaty as your standard hefe in my opinion. A little bland.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Reverie, Edinburgh. I’m a big hefeweizen fan and this is not your typical hefeweizen, mostly because it has a sour yeast element, citrus. A decent amount of flavour. Unique. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma close to a classic Hefe with some banana and bubblegum but also a touch of citrus. Appearance is pretty much spot on for this style, moderately cloudy with fine carbonation and a great head. Refreshing taste, not overpoweringly hefe and a nice bitterness and citrus fruit to balance. I’m not usually a fan of this style but this one I would drink again
