4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good Spirits Co. Glasgow (500ml, £2.80):
Rich banana and clove aroma to start with some citrus undertones and a combination of wheat, yeast and lighter fruits with a little bread too. The smell is pretty refreshing with some sweetness and a tiny amount of bubblegum.
Bright orange, lighter towards the bottom. Cloudy with a foamy, inch tall head, holds well with almost no reduction.
Banana and clove upfront with some background citrus and fruit. The wheat is easily detected too and there is a light, hoppy spice to round things off with.
Smooth & medium with strong carbonation. There is a slight citrus tang and some fruity sweetness but the balance is good and the beer is very easy to drink.
My first new German hefeweizen in a while and after the first sip I knew it had been too long, this one is an excellent beer and quickly reminded me of what I had been missing. The mouthfeel was a particular highlight with a great balance between flavours & great carbonation too.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle by 07.03.12. Nose has a heavy yeast component, esters with heavy wheat. Minerals and sweet phenols come later. Cloudy golden with a creamy, rocky white head. Taste is moderately bittersweet with grainy, pretzel-tinged yeast and heavy wheat, a good mineral character and a touch of hop spice. Smooth, slimy medium-full body. Like this a lot, deserves some fame, only points of for a nearly insignificant rubbery note in the finish.
