3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from ASDA, Manchester. Slightly hazy pale orange coloured beer, with not much of a head. Has a light wheat aroma and taste, but feels understated in this and its yeast. Palatable, but a lesser morsel in its style.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice cloudy orange color with large fluffy white head. Bananas, fresh, yeasty, a bit tart. Great fruity-refreshing taste of bananas and more fruits I can?t quite tell. Smooth mouthfeel, super easy to drink. A very balanced and good Hefeweizen - I personally prefer Schneider, but Schneider is a bit less balanced and more distinct.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy orange with a large thick foamy head that lasts long. Fruity aroma of citrus, banana, wheat, malts, yeasts, bit of vanilla. Lovely. Taste is pretty much in line with the aroma. Clear note of the banana, a nice lingering spicy bite as well. Sweet all along the line, but there is a nice mild bitterness that lies a bit underneath the sweetness. Nice mild aftertaste with that same mix between the malty/bready sweetness and the mild bitterness in the background with a nice yeasty kick. Absolutely lovely. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, and midlly carbonated. Nice, beautifully balanced and tasty Weizen, which I would love to drink everyday. True quality and absolutely a gem.

Deep yellow color. That banana sourness on the nose, and a little thru the sip. Pretty thick stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
50 cl. Also on tap, @Speedy Pub in Monza. Pours a very large white creamy head, deep orange, cloudy and opaque colour. Smells smells fenolic/clove, fruity, grainy and vanilla. Tastes very fruity, esters, sweet spices, banana hints, wheat; nice and right amount of sweetness. Fizzy high carbonation, medium bodied, creamy texture. Extremly smooth, probably the most balanced and weiss out there, and maybe also the most drinkable too, aromonious, delicate, but still perceptible flavours. Seamless and very refined, but not the tastiest. Not sure at all to consider this the "best" weisse /hefewizen (see Ayinger and Schneider...)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at trios. Pours hazy yellow with a huge white head. The aroma has plenty of banana, medium clove. The taste has a ton of banana bread and a slight spiciness. Well done.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This highly rated beer got my hopes up far too high. Poured a murky straw with a massive off white frothy head, which is very appealing. Aroma was of wheat, citrus, herbs, and too much bubble gum. Tasted of bubble gum to the max, with wheat and herbs in the background. Had a refreshing bubble gum aftertaste that was tolerable. Also a big chewy mouth feel, but remained clean feeling too.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Couleur jaune trouble, petite mousse blanche. Bon nez de bananes, pailles. Gout malté, bananes, notes de levures, petite amertume en fin de bouche. Ca va, le minimum qu’on peux attendre d’une hefeweizen.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured into weizen glass. Hazy gold color with large, stable head. Looks great. Aroma of bananas, wheat, cloves, yeasts and hint of a bubblegum. Very pleasant. Taste has the same notes with bananas upfront yeasty finish. Mouthfeel is velvety, smooth. Great, classic weizen but I believe there are better ones.
