3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle bought at YATA in Grand Century Place, Mong Kok.
Cloudy hazy golden yellow orange colour with substantial dirt- like yeast sediments; One and a half finger head with crumpety white foam which lasts for about 90 seconds; small sticky lacing and low carbonation; Pretty fragment aroma of banana, vanilla, orange, malt, cloves, and coriander; Slightly tart and light sweet taste of light malt, with light banana, cloves, spices, light lemon and very light herbal grass; Mid to light body, slightly slick and quite crisp palate; Mouth feel is slightly dry but crispy, with good dose of light malt, wheat, light banana for a good weiss base. Also very yeasty, with pretty nice cloves and spicey taste. Nice! Hoppiness is light lemon and herbal nose, good lemony and shade of herb taste, plus the a shade of bitterness. Also no astringency, pretty much wheaty and malty finish; Pretty dry after taste, very easy and crispy to mouth.
Comments: This is simple, no complicated or explosive tastes like Paulaner or Lammsbräu, but it is all round solid, good looking, decent head, pretty bright banana and clove nose and taste, and a just-right body and crisp mouth feel. A cut above the middle, I will buy again for sure.

Bottle from Coop - Tuatara Mix 6 (3 of 6) Pours a clear golden yellow with no haziness to speak of. Bubbly white head dissipates quickly. Has the look of sparkling apple juice. Aroma is heavy on yeast, mild fruitiness (banana), very mild herbal note.. Taste is quite sweet, and doesn’t have the natural grainy tones, or any of the mouthfeel of your typical hefeweisen. Sure doesnt look like a hefe, either. Not exciting - unsure if possibly a bad bottle.

Bottle direct from Tuatara brewery. Pale, hazy golden, decent white head quickly dissipated, quite doughy/bready, some banana, grainy wheat. Ok.

Draft at Pom’s, free drink from the b&b. hazy golden yellow color, white edge head. Aroma of citrus bubblegum. Taste is similar. Decent enough.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
In spite of my years living in Germany (and drinking imported stout), I am not well versed on this particular persuasion. It does look and smell and taste good enough for me. Could easily come across and a damn good Hefeweizen. The highlight is the lovely banana bublegum aroma and taste.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy dull yellow. Smells footy...too much yeast. The body is fairly full, but still on the yeasty side of things. Touch style to nail.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Standard haze, etc. nutmeg, citrus, mild banana, faint tropical note, dirt. Maybe it’s been a while since I’ve had I e but it smells pretty decent. The taste is solid and made my mouth water. Well put together taste - citrus tartness rolls jn and out then comes again and stays. Nice spice that doesn’t overrun anything, a bit watery on occasion. Mellow banana fades, drying, zippy zoop znip.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Fork & Tap pub in Arrowtown. The is an ok unfiltered wheat beer with usual elements (banana, cloves, bread) but there are many better examples of the style. Hazy orange pour with decent creamy white head.

A fruity, cheerful wheat beer that is light and bubbly with a dry finish. Perfect for a warm & sunny afternoon.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
(330ml bottle) Tuatara mixed 6-pack. Pours a thin, quick dissipating white cloudy golden. Some artificial banana flavour but overtones of canned vegetables. Slight citrus, sweet yet almost spoiled milk and horse blanket. Pretty disappointing.
