COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg; Regular.
In the style of a Bavarian wheat beer, our Hefeweizen is an authentic blend of wheat and barley malt, hopped carefully and left naturally unfiltered with a clean aroma of banana and clove and a satisfying zing on the palette, topped with crisp, white foam.

Graham77 (205) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 10, 2013
Draught at the Crown in Biggar. Typical German Hefeizen style beer but not quite as good. Some of the flavours are muted by a slightly over sour taste that comes through on the palate. Plenty of flavour though and quite refreshing.

Martin243 (696) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2013
Pint at the Schooner, Gateshead. Very cold. Cloudy yellow with a thick white head. Usual hefe aroma, but a bit lacking in the usual banana bubblegum and clove flavours - they’re there, but a bit muted. Drier and thinner than most wheat wheat beers I’ve had. Easy to drink, but a bit lacking.

Half pint, keg at the brewpub. Cloudy, golden-orange body. Firm white head reduced to a patchy surface. Aroma of wheat and spicy fruits. Taste of banana, clove and wheat offset by a welcome citrus tartness. Soft carbonated. Refreshing. Well made weizen (Glasgow, 13.04.2012).

Draught@Euston Tap, London. Hazy yellowish golden colour with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is wheat, some citrus fruits, mild bananas as well as some herbal notes. Flavour is quite similar with some slight sugary notes. A bit on the sweet side, otherwise a quite good and refreshing Hefeweizen.

AshtonMcCobb (2119) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 23, 2011
UPDATED: APR 6, 2013 Re-rate from tap @ Bruadar in Glasgow. Slightly better marks for palate and nose this time though not getting to German standards. Previous rating - 23/08/2011 5+3+6+3+12=2.9 Draught @ Bert’s Bar. Pours a cloudy golden with not much head. The nose has a light lemon tang. The taste has tangy banana and pineapple. The palate is actually thin bodied and textured and very clean. This is ok, but it doesn’t have much of what I love about Hefeweisen. The appearance is underwhelming when Hefe is usually one of the most excellent appearances that can be found in beer and the nose is very light and there’s no creamy rich body. Will have to re-taste again in case it wa a bad pint of it but not excited about it this time.
